I ordered the salmon, may have been 3 ounces. Sweet potato was luke warm. They claim to have brought back one our fav pasta dishes but no where close. New menu is awful. No one here... I know why... and it still took 35 mins to get food. This was their 2nd chance after the last miserable adventure here. I... More

There are not many places in Lenoir that provide the type of service and meal as Fatz. The staff is great and the meals are fantastic. I love their ribs and their wings. I am generally by myself, so I sit at the bar, and the staff always remembers me, even if it has been awhile since I have been... More

We received wonderful service from Sarah Jane. This was surely a nice surprise and very refreshing since, unfortunately, you don't get it very often. We really enjoyed the food too!

We were staying across the street and decided to eat here instead of Sagebrush.We ate around 5:00 so we were able to be seated without waiting. Our waitress was very friendly, and our entree was at the table in 15 minutes. I had the rib-eye and wife had the combination calabash chicken and shrimp. Both very good, but the star... More

Service was first rate, the entree left a lot to be desired.The chicken fried steak was a very thin piece of steak. My spouse said he finds the fish filet at Captain D's superior. He got the optional, for .99 uncharge, dinner salad. It was... More

Went for a family member's birthday. Bathroom was super gross. Service was forgetful. Food was obviously frozen food warmed up--Stouffer's lasagna would have been a better, fresher choice. Most tables around us were complaining to management for one reason or another, as did the folks I was with. I had fried shrimp which weren't bad, but the chopsteak is like... More
