“Fat Jacks ”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Raw oysters were good, not impressed with the other food I tried. Great atmosphere and service. Prices weren't too bad, but a little much for a plastic basket with wax paper as my dinner plate.

“Did we offend someone?”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Ever walked into a place and felt like you didn't belong? That's the way we felt at Fat Jack's. Thought we'd try it, since it was near the hotel, but were not greeted when we walked in and waited for someone to tell us what to do. Finally grabbed some menus and sat down. (hope it was "seat yourself"....maybe it wasn't....maybe that was the problem) Looked at the menu. Not impressed. Started to get a feeling this was not the place we wanted to be, so, after waiting without anyone checking up on us, we dropped our menus off and tried somewhere else. If anyone noticed our leaving, they didn't show it. We were there at kind of an odd time. Too late for dinner. Not late enough for just drinking.

The place was packed on a Saturday night, but we were able to get seating for 7 within a few minutes. Fast service, great burgers

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

We ordered crawfish pasta (~$10) and mushrooms with oysters, crawfish, and shrimp (~13). Both meals were made to perfection - fresh, well seasoned, cooked/broiled, and presented. The waitress was great. The kitchen was a little bit slow but the food was way worth the wait. Will for sure come back. Conveniently located at the north end of Bathhouse Row.
