I've been looking forward to breakfast at The Fatted Calf for 6 months. All the locals seem to rave about it. I took my son a few days ago, and we were both disappointed. My pancakes were overcooked and quite honestly small for $3.50 per...More

The Fatted Calf is a great little restaurant. Perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner, the service is solid and the food is good. Try the chicken and waffles, they're outstanding and the Pub Burger is the best Hamburger in town. I really like it for...More

We had read rave reviews of the Fatted Calf and decided to try it for Sunday brunch. It seems that half of greater Dallas had the same idea. We waited for close to an hour for seats. Such a wait we expected something more than...More

Different yet delicious choices for breakfast and lunch. I know they have dinner once or twice a week but haven't made that yet.

Very busy for breakfast. Do not dine here if in a rush. Everything was prepared fresh, so food may take slightly longer. Large portions! The sticky bun was tasty. I could have ordered a sticky bun and some bacon and would have been satisfied. I...More

Food and service excellent. The only critique is adding seasoning. I'm not a salt person but the food tastes unsalted but certainly too much is far worse. Service is always great and everything I've ordered in 5 visits has been delicious plus it's a quaint...More

Chef Ted Grieb has taken his talent to a new level ! The Fatted Calf, on the square in downtown Rockwall, specializes in "Down Home Chic" food at a reasonable price. Formerly Old Timers, the Fatted Calf is a comfortable, upscale restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday. Special dinners and evening events take place throughout the year. Daily specials are offered and feature only the freshest, seasonal ingredients. The genesis of the restaurant came from the need for a high quality, comfortable dining establishment in Rockwall. Ted was raised by his mother (a great cook) and father (a great fisherman) in southern New Jersey where he developed a love for farm fresh food, freshly caught seafood and large portions! Everyone in the family has a love for food, including his sister Beth who makes the jams, pastries and desserts for the restaurant. Chef Ted has made his home in Rockwall with his wife, two adorable daughters, four crazy dogs and three friendly cows. Manager Blake Kirk is always available to help you find a table or place an order! They have both been essential in the opening and management of The Fatted Calf. They and the staff at the Fatted Calf aim to please and will always greet you with a smile. Shoreline Restaurant Corp., The owners of Culpepper's and The Oar House as well, saw the talent of Chef Ted and the opportunity to take The Fatted Calf to a new level. The Fatted Calf moniker refers to the daily celebration to be had at the restaurant, where friends and family can meet for a quick bite or an extended stay. Come check out our beautiful new look and our fabulous bar. Happy Hour and dinner will be a must !
