    Great drink selection (beers and ciders, as well as bourbons/whisky). They add their own spins on a few classic cocktails. DELICIOUS :) 🍻🍸🍹🍷

    Take a selfie with your bike at their red bike rack in front, upload it to social media, tell your server, and get a FREE appetizer!

    Came here for a quick drink before hitting the riv. It was Mardi Gras and pretty crowded but the staff was cordial and attentive. Good specials and lively crowd.

    Egg sandwich for brunch is delightful. Bread, cheddar, bacon & egg. That's it. And that's all you need.

    Awesome beer menu. Great for a late night drink after a concert at the Aragon

    Ask for the Bentley Gallagher. It's a shot of Jameson and a shot of Malort poured directly on the bar. You mop it up with a Northwestern degree and eat it.

    Where else can you play a giant version of Jenga while tipsy? The Fat Cat has great music, yummy apps and pretty decent drink specials (during the week)... Read more

    Try the corn dog appetizer and mac and cheese bites. Great outdoor seating. If there's a concert at the Riviera or Aragon, get here early or late.

    The spicey bbq wings are yummy, but a little to saucy. If ur not down with the sauce ask them to go light. :)

    Better know what you want plus a second choice, because if they don't have what you ask for, they'll walk away and serve someone else

    They have signs near the bathrooms declaring how progressive their gender neutral bathrooms are. So I went ahead and used the womens because of YOLO.

    Even though it doesn't mention it, you can't use the special on concert nights. Even if you aren't here for a concert. :(
