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.

What can I say? The Fat Cat is one of our go-to restaurants in Quincy. Small in size, but big on value and flavor! Their sandwich selection is varied and reasonably priced between $8 and $12. On this trip our party had a burger, a...More
