...considering we were there with a big group, that's to be expected. The server got every order correct and was very patient and friendly with our big group. She also kept the drinks full. I had the best etouffee I've ever tasted--I'm sure folks further south might disagree, but it was stuffed with seafood and seasoned beautifully. The bowl was... More

Well, this crowd is FUN. Upstairs bar with picnic tables, a garage door, $2 beers & smokers? Is that even legal. I'm a Yankee visiting, so just asking.. Didn't get food but looked very fattening = super good. Felt welcomed. Could go alone, even a female, & this crowd would embrace.

You never know what to expect from a place called Fat Jacks. We had a late lunch and the place was empty, except for a few regular patrons drinking at the bar. My wife had a Ruben that she like as it was stuffed to the core with meat. I had the Oyster Po Boy, which was good, but nothing... More

I have been attracted to the restaurant, Fat Jacks. Just the name brings all sorts of ideas about what is inside the front doors. With that in mind K and I went there for lunch with a coupon for a free appetizer with the purchase of two entrees. Upon passing through the doors I felt like I was in a... More

Great prices, great beer and the best oysters. We sat at a picnic table. The music was loud but it is always a fun place to meet friends.

Fat Jacks downtown hot springs is a good place for Cajun dishes and oysters with fried foods. Good sports bar with TV's showing games. Several choices for baked oysters and Cajun dishes. The service was friendly and fast. Great location within walking distance of the Arlington hotel. Po Boy's also great.

I have been in there twice over the past few months and both times it was the same. Mediocre food, untrained servers that are more interested in their cell phones than giving you good service. I tried, but I'm done. In a town where the food service industry is so competitive, you would think the owners would present a better... More

Fat Jack's is a Sports Bar featuring "Cajun" & pub food. I'm not into pub food ~ but I ❤️ real Cajun food. This was not it. Angels on Horseback ~ Seahorses Baked oysters on the half shell wrapped in bacon & topped with mozzerella. Make it a Seahorse by adding a shrimp on top. But the oysters were tiny... More
