It all started with a simple cast net, Lake Pontchartrain and one man that loved the water!
Pete Sr. not only fished at an early age but turned his uncanny ability to throw a cast net in The Lake into a family owned business... Fatty’s Seafood Market was born. Many years later, this very same passion became the foundation for today’s Fatty’s Seafood Restaurant.
Why the name, "FATTY'S"?
Our name was originally created because people that love seafood, love to enjoy seafood that is FAT. Fat crabs, fat crawfish, fat oysters... you get the point! People don’t enjoy skinny seafood so the name came easily “FATTY’S” it is!
Why the BLUE CRAWFISH and do they really exist? So here's the skinny (or fatty) on it...
Growing up at the original Fatty's, Pete Jr. watched as thousands of lbs of crawfish were graded, purged and cooked on a daily basis and it was one mid-April afternoon that he came across something he had never seen before- a cobalt BLUE CRAWFISH! You see, blue crawfish do exist but are extremely rare and difficult to find. It's estimated that 1 in 10,000 crawfish are blue! Ever since then, when one is found, it's referred to as a "Fatty".
So after more than 3 decades, the Amadeo family welcomes you into their dream, their vision and their family business. We invite you into our home, Fatty's Seafood Restaurant!
