Fall at Fat Hen

Squash Rice Fat Hen

While it may not feel like it here in the Lowcountry quite yet, fall has officially arrived. We love fall here at Fat Hen because with it comes exciting changes to our menu and wine list.

We have a few menu items here at Fat Hen that aim to capture the flavors of fall. Our squash rice, available in two portion sizes, is complemented with fall favorites like butternut squash and corn. Not to mention, it’s vegetarian and gluten-free.

Our rich and smoky seared duck confit served with garlic spinach and sweet potatoes is sure to put you in the fall mood, as is our braised lamb shank, deliciously accompanied by carrots and parsnips. With the introduction of our fall wine list, our experienced servers can help you find the perfect wine pairing for your fall inspired dish.

Fat Hen

Make the most of fall by checking out our fall menu items and wine list, or enjoying cool evenings at The Coop with live music, good friends, and great drinks. Happy fall, ya’ll!
