Friendly service, good food

A friend and I had lunch here on a Saturday. The restaurant was busy and the wait staff were efficient. The food was good and all the staff were pleasant to us. I ordered a salmon dish that has a jalapeno sauce which was delicious! The waitress was gracious to put the sauce on the side as it is... read more

We ate here in early mid-April 2015. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Otherwise, food was average tasting and over-priced. We are certainly in no hurry to return. If we were with a group of people desirous of eating here, we would be inclined to dine elsewhere separately.

I did not receive my birthday ecard and the manager would not visit my table. The waitress said that I needed to go online and re-sign up for the ecard. I did and it said that I am signed up. She also told me that the manager would give me a complimentary birthday meal card. I didn't get that either.... More

I go there with my family from time to time and the service is excellent. We rarely have to wait to get a table and the staff does a great job there. I would definitely eat there again in the future.

You can't go wrong with this franchise. This one was no exception. I love everything on the menu. I would eat here every day if my pocketbook would allow.

Fatz is a regional fast-casual restaurant chain that has reliably good, moderately priced food in generous portions. Every Fatz I have been to has been clean, well maintained, with good service and good food. This location is no exception, and I have eaten here many times. Given a choice between Chili's, Applebee's, Zaxby's and the like, I would always choose... More

Have eaten here several times. The quality of the food is excellent, hot and served up fast. It is the biggest chain restaurant in Marion. Management is outstanding. Wait staff always friendly. I think they are doing a very good job tending to the people that frequent. I have to say they do a really good job...

I live in Marion and have watched Fatz go down hill over the past year. The service is the worst in town. I've had to chase a waitress down to take our order and then to refill drinks. Tonight our salads didn't come until after our meal! They have even messed up our call in order! Pathetic! It's sad because... More

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and it was packed because it is the nicest restaurant in the area. Friendly service, decent food.

Pretty decent food although it is a chain restaurant. I do not typically visit chain restaurants but it is really the only decently healthy place in the area that will have something for everyone.
