An old traditional restaurant in Oakland that serves great and tasty food. Interior decorated celebrating Halloween, the bar serves great cocktails, has a very good selection of spirits and wines. The food served is not complicated and very tasty.The service is even, unhurried and with a smile. A great place for good drinks, food and service. Have dined many times. And never been disappointed. Great Jack London Square and Oakland institution. Worth a try.

While visiting Oakland, my family and I came across the fat lady, and we were very happy with out visit. The calamari was flavorfull and crispy, the ribeye steaks were perfectly made, and they had great beer and drinks. The waitress was also very friendly. When we come back to Cali we'll definitely be coming again.

I ate at The Fat Lady for the first time today for brunch. The crab cake Eggs Benedict with a side of home fries potatoes. Both were good. The potatoes come with ketchup but I asked for aioli instead. It's a great substitution for ketchup and quite flavorful. I'd definitely get it again.The Meyer lemon sorbet is light and doesn't have an overpowering lemon flavor. It was a good way to wrap up the brunch.
