Went for the first time this past Saturday for dinner. Had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table, so sat at the bar. The bartender told me they had Mayflower Summer Rye, so I ordered one. He poured it, then told me, oops, it was Mayflower Pale Ale. He gave it to me for free. So began a great experience. After being seated, we were served by a very friendly young woman who made us feel at home. The menu has great diversity, as did the specials, and the prices are so reasonable, most entrees in the mid to high teens at most, with many sandwich selections, mac & cheese, much more. We had the crab cakes, which were fabulous, and fried dill pickle slices, also very good.
I had the full rack of ribs, which barely fit on the plate and lasted for 2 meals. Great ribs.
I also drank a Blue Hills IPA, then a Belgian witbier they had on draft. OK, I wouldn't exactly call it a craft beer bar, but the choices were more than adequate, and they have many bottles I could have ordered and been happy as well. I am fussy when it comes to beer, but left with no complaints. More like a great place to eat that also has good beer choices to compliment that.
The value, service, and food were so good, I loved it and can't wait to get back there. Ran into some sort of parade in Quincy center after dinner and thought we would be stuck forever in the city, but eventually escaped.

My go to in Quincy. Absolutely love this place. It is definitely more about the food here than the beer. The beer selection is always solid. Bottle selection a bit better. I do not come here for the beer however. Its more about the food. This is the first restaurant I have ever ordered a special. Its now all I order. If in Quincy and you are looking for a good restaurant with a quality tap selection, this is your place.

The Fat Cat in Quincy is a truly unique dining experience. Comfort food done at its best. Mac and Cheese, burgers, nachos, all done in unique ways.

A great beer selection with monthly specials, makes Fat Cat a place worth returning to over and over again.

Be sure to try their special dipping sauces and spices for their french fries, some of the best in town.

If you do venture out to Quincy, be sure to get there early. The Fat Cat is rather small, and very popular, so seating comes at a premium.

This is THE place to eat in Quincy as reflected in their sometimes 1+ hour waits for a table. And don't think calling ahead will secure you one, they don't take reservations.

Not very big, but a nice bar to sit at and only maybe 20 tables in total. There are about 8 beers on tap but none of them are macros aside from Guiness. But try to get away without having Guiness on tap in Quincy and you won't last long, even Mexican and Chinese eateries have it. The bottle list is more extensive and has some interesting choices while not being too pricey for the average Joe.

And this is not a place to only go for drinks, the food is amazing and be sure to ask about the specials as there is always at least one that'll get your attention. Oh and the mac and cheese is great!
