Went to Fatty’s for a business lunch, sports bar atmosphere, good pub fare, okay service, and at least six of the taps were imports/micros. I was happy to see a few micros just wish the bar had a tap list at the tables. The list posted behind the bar was misleading, I thought I ordered a Troeg’s Nugget Nectar and got a Humboldt IPA Nectar. I’d go back again for lunch.

This is a weird mix. At times, this is a very blue-collar Budweiser drinkin’ bar, at other times it’s very family oriented, and at times they have amazing beers on tap - usually it’s a mix of all of the above. 5 or 6 standard taps (including crap beers like bud, bud light, Coors light etc.), but then they have 7 or 8 that vary regularly. at one point recently they had 3 IPAs on at once. Food is really good bar food - definitely above average - good prices and huge portions. dinner and lunch specials are very good usually too. my biggest complaint about fatty’s is the horrendous music - usually soft rock or classic rock like B101. lots of TVs if you like sports. Good neighborhood with above average food and good beer selection.
