Have been going earlier and earlier to Fat Cat to at least attempt to sit and eat at the bar and avoid long waits for a table. Plus the bartenders are great and it's more fun there.
This Sat we arrived at 5:15 (makes me feel like moving to Sun City for the Early Bird diner special) but it was already a total scene ... with at least 30 people waiting for tables.
Someone mentioned that Phantom reviewed them over the weekend. I didn't see it but the bartender said that a lot of people were talking about it.
Tables turned over finally and I was able to weasel in for some bar seating.
And despite being slammed, the food was excellent, as usual.
