This new iteration of Fatcow Steak & Lobster, formerly located at Eagle Street Pier, will bring diners over to a swanky new spot in the Valley, where a fresh take on steakhouse dining awaits.

Fatcow on James St is the brainchild of restaurateur Michael Tassis. With a portfolio that includes establishments like Rich & Rare and Yamas Greek + Drink, Tassis aims to shake up the Valley dining scene with this revival.

At the heart of Fatcow’s comeback lies a meticulously crafted menu that pays homage to the finest cuts of meat and the freshest seafood. Guests can expect an array of carefully curated options, including the much-anticipated, truly decadent, gold-wrapped 400-gram, rib fillet steak-and-lobster combo.

But the offerings don’t stop there. From wagyu tasting boards featuring three distinct varieties to an indulgent selection of mains ranging from wagyu burgers to lamb shoulder, Fatcow’s menu leaves no culinary stone unturned when it comes to staging this comeback to the Brisbane dining scene.

Fresh seafood takes centre stage, with Brisbane’s only live oyster tank ensuring unparalleled freshness and quality.

For those with a sweet tooth, Fatcow’s dessert menu includes scrumptious chocolate tarts, lime sorbet, and basque cheesecake. An extensive wine list with over 300 labels provides curated pairings that complement every dish on offer.
