My husband was busy… So I dined alone because I wanted to go out anyway. The staff, as always, was friendly and responsive. And of course the food - consistently delicious!!

Our server was excellent! We had tacos and margaritas for our first lunch out since phase 4 and we were all very happy with the cleanliness, promptness of service and level of food being served. Always impressed by Fat Rosie's!

They need to honor those who make reservations first instead of seating walk-ins before us...especially during restrictive dining parameters right now.

Unfortunately we didn't get to dine at our reserved time. We showed up a few minutes ahead of our 8 PM reservation and waited for about 15 minutes after being told the hostess would seat us as soon as our table was ready. We watched as they seated 3-4 parties who were all waiting outside. Some appeared to have reservations and were seated immediately others appeared to have been waiting awhile but were seated in front of us. When they finally noticed we were still waiting for our reserved time, we were told it would be awhile for us to be seated. All the tables were just filled! This was a birthday celebration for a party of 4. We weren't any larger of a party than any other guests but they disregarded our reservation and we would have to wait for approx. 45 minutes to eat. Since our reservation was at 8 pm we cancelled and found an alternative choice. If we had known that their policy was to seat people as they come in, then we would have just shown up at 6 PM and got a table much sooner than the only option through Open Table which was 8 PM. If restaurants accept Open Table reservations, they should uphold those reserved times. Otherwise I would recommend Open Table not allow Fat Rosie's to offer reservations. Absolutely disappointed especially since we've been regular diners of Fat Rosie's since they opened and we will no longer ever attend their restaurant. This is the second time this has happened to us. NOT COOL!

It was the first time we have been back since businesses began reopening and our experience couldn’t have been better. Everything was extremely clean and the staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating.

The food is amazing, every time I come here the staff have attitudes... I’m not sure if it’s just their personality or if it’s a race issue... our waiter was nice, it’s always the men at the check in stand that come off as unwelcoming.

Fat Rosie's always does a great job! Our recent visit was on a Saturday night, during the Covid pandemic and therefore only outdoor seating, and shortly after the riots in Naperville. The staff was courteous, attentive, and we didn't have to wait long for a table. We look forward to the next visit!

It was unacceptable. We made a reservation 40 min out. Drove 25 min and the man in the lobby said they were closed due to a protest. I have no issue with that. Totally understand. My issue is he lied. I said it would had been nice if someone would had called me- he said he did. He did not. Unacceptable. Another example that Fat Rosies is not customer focused.

We arrived on Friday, June 5th at 11:45am for our Noon reservation through Open Table. Around 12:05pm a worker opened the door to us and another couple who also had Noon reservations and told us you were closed. We never received any notification that our reservations were canceled. He told us the restaurant was closed for the day and we should look around and see that everyone was closed. Well Jimmy’s was clearly open so we went there instead. We then when to Potter’s Place who was also open and had another drink. On our way back to the car we noticed your restaurant was now open even though he told us it was going to be closed all day. We love coming here for our lunches and were disappointed to experience the lack of communication with our reservations.

I booked a table for 4 for my birthday this last weekend. I needed to add an extra person and when I called, the restaurant was very accommodating in making this happen short notice. Once we got there, we were quickly seated and the service was great. Drinks were refilled quick, food came out so good. Overall amazing first experience and will be back at some point!

Salmon taco and grilled fish taco were both amazing. Carne asada was chewy. Enjoyed the chips, salsa and side of beans. SUPER loud on a Friday night; felt like I was yelling at my friend, and my ears were buzzing a bit once we left. Had two enormous margaritas and only the slightest buzz, so I do think they are mostly juice/ice/fruit. Would definitely get take out in the future though.
