It's been several years since I last dined at The Fat Cat, mainly because you could never get a table there during the popular dinner hours. Now, with many competing restaurants surrounding this Quincy icon, the competition is much stronger. Arriving at 6:30+ on a...More

Wonderful service by Andrew and great food for my daughter's bday. The bartender made a great mojito. We were stuffed prior to ordering dessert- so be beware -portions are over the top. I would highly recommend this spot. 💕

The pulled pork sandwich here is our all time favourite along with the fried calamari. The convenience of the location is an added advantage.

Went with friends for dinner. The wait for a table was really worth it. Portion sizes are HUGE. Everyone seems to leave with a TO GO Bag. The food taste great, prices are reasonable and the wings or Lobster Mac and Cheese is Awesome.

This hidden gem has large portions of incredible, incredible food. The macaroni and cheese will leave you full and you'll have enough for lunch the next day. It is quite small, so I would recommend getting there early to get a table.

Lots of interesting choices for dinner - apps, entrees and sandwiches. Generous portions, reasonable prices, nice casual atmosphere. Cod in chowder was delicious - light, creamy broth with pieces of cod plus clams, fingerling potatoes, corn, cherry tomatoes. Pasta dishes, ribs also very good.
