Fat Head's Saloon in North Olmsted


Food---My choice for the evening was the Buffalo/Parmesan flavored Wings and the Big Kahuna Pizza.   The wings were slightly larger than your average wing and cooked to perfection.  The meat was very moist and there was not a lot of fat on the wings either.  The Buffalo/Parmesan flavoring was very good.   First they flavor the wings in their medium hot buffalo sauce and then finish them off by tossing them in Parmesan cheese.   I've eaten wings at some of the best places in Ohio and PA, and these wings could hold their own hands down.  The Buffalo sauce had a good kick to it that left your lips a little hot.  What was great about having the Parmesan on them as well was that the Parmesan really cut the spice and added different texture to the wing.  I was a big fan of this combination, but I would have liked a little less Parmesan on the wings.  I felt that too much Parmesan took away a little from the overall taste.  That was also the consensus at my table.  
The Big Kahuna Pizza was a Pizza topped with chicken, ham, pineapple, red onions, black olives and mozzarella and provolone cheese.   It was then topped with mild buffalo wing sauce.    The crust on the pizza was cooked to perfection and the combination of toppings together was very good.  The sweet and spicy complemented each other very well on this pizza.  I just wish they would have diced up the ingredients a little smaller so that they could be tasted in each and every bite.  4/5

Drinks---The selection of beers here is top notch.  They brew almost every type of beer you could want and they also have a great "guest" list of beers that they have available from other microbreweries.  I had the following beers during this trip to Fat Heads:  The Hop JuJu Imperial IPA is super hoppy and very strong!  I loved it.  The Head Hunter IPA is less hoppy but still every bit as good.  A top IPA in the country!   The Cask Conditioned Head Hunter was just OK.  I like the added carbonation in beer and the cask conditioned really doesn't have that.   More details on these beers can be found by clicking on the name link or by going on my CraftBeer Review Page.  If you are a beer lover this place is a MUST go to in Cleveland!  5/5

Overall---The atmosphere of the brewery is very fun and upbeat, but the 4 of us that went were able to hold a conversation very easily even though it was very busy.   We only had to wait 15 minutes  for a table which was short considering how busy it really was.  Our waiter was top notch. We never had an empty glass and he was always quick to return to our table to check on us.  I really liked that before he left with our orders he always repeated what we had ordered to confirm our order.   We all really appreciated that! The restaurant and the service get a perfect score in everyone's' opinion last night!  5/5

Was your waiter Sam because he is our favorite and I think top notch in the field.

I am going to have to look back to see who it was. It was a man and he was top notch. Wore glasses with short hair. He was honestly one of the best waiters I have had anywhere. Very on top of the food orders and drink orders all night...and we were there for 2hrs+! I told him after the meal how great he was and left him a very very nice tip.

Great review Brad - we have a FatHeads here in Pittsburgh that is ALWAYS packed - Love their sandwiches and that the featured beers change with the seasons.

Thanks Amy! I've been to the Burgh one before but never for eating purposes really. The food here at the Cleveland one really impressed me and the beers speak for themselves. They are award winners around the country!
