Regular customer when I visit my folks.

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.

This was the 2nd time we ate at FATZ and we are 2 for 2. Their food is seasoned excellently and arrives very hot. I was really in the mood for fish and got the blackened fish sandwich. Sometimes blackened means so spicy that you really can't taste the fish, but at FATZ, it was spicy without hiding the flavor... More

I really struggled with this rating because it started out simply horrible (would have given it one star). Our salad came out just seconds before our meal was brought out (a huge no-no). My beef tips were supposed to come over garden rice but didn't. When I pointed it out to our server she told me it didn't. She went... More
