Im a vegetarian and always order a potato soup and some appetizers or sides in my Hometown FATZ. We have visited this location during our travel. The soup was blended with water, and appetizer was so over salted, that I had to leave it along.

Husband had a ribeye and I had ribs and shrimp. I'm hesitant about ordering (large)shrimp from a chain but these were surprisingly good. The steak and ribs were both tender and flavorful. Service was excellent too. We will definitely return when we're in the area.

Great waitress. This FATZ needs cleaning. Door to kitchen is filthy and floor in kitchen is filthy. Food was ok but FATZ in Morganton is much nicer, cleaner and food was better. Outside of building also needs to be painted. Come on FATZ - up your game - just because this is Marion doesn't justify lowering your corporate standards.

Entered restaurant at 8:25 pm. Promptly seated. Appeared to be about 20 other customers all eating. We were the only ones newly seated. Waited and waited and waited. Not one waiter came to greet, take order, etc. the waiters were all milling about in one area focused on each other. After 10 minutes we left. Do not recommend this restaurant... More

Good waiter, "Steiner." Food was guilt-inducing fried stuff of no noteable quality. In Marion, Fatz is the one-eyed man in the valley of the blind.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner. They have a varied menu with lots of delicious options. We had low calorie choices (salmon and chicken) and really enjoyed the fresh grilled taste and lime - flavored rice. Our waitress was pleasant and competent. This is a great place to eat that offers reasonable prices and good food.

We had traveled to a funeral in Boone and on our way back home in SC. Tried to go to another restaurant in Marion but they were closed. We decided on Fatz. Odd time to eat but was around 330. Very few people in the restaurant. I ordered soup (baked potato) and house salad with spicy ranch dressing my husband... More

I sat at the bar mid week and it was not too busy. The service was good and the beer was cold. I ordered a ribeye and it was good.
