If you stick to the standard you'll be fine. The veggie burger here is outstanding. Just get some cheese and hot sauce on it too. The fries are nothing to write home about while the shakes are excellent.

If you want a reasonably priced meal, Marathon is a solid choice. Three of us came here for brunch and we all enjoyed our meals which included eggs benedict, an omelet, and pancakes. All agreed the pancakes were the best. Service is a little hit or miss and on colder days the tables near the front door are subjected to gusts of cold air. Reservations are available for dinner on OpenTable but no other times. #Philly #Restaurant

Great food and I love the outdoor seating!! Service is friendly, quick and outgoing! Happy hour wine by the glass is a perfect way to wind down the day. Get the hummus app or the fire roasted salsa with homemade chips to share! Yum! I also love the large selection of vegetarian and gluten free menu items. They are clearly marked on the menu as well so you know what is what. And with three locations it's easy to get the quick lunch on your break. The 16th & Sansom location is awesome. However, the Market St. location has a great outdoor happy hour!

I've always enjoyed the Marathon Grill restaurants when I visit Philadelphia. There are fewer of them now, but the one on South 16th is always good. The (comparatively) menu is best described as an attentive "spin" on casual/diner fare, while remaining reasonable in cost. The grilled salmon steak with mustard sauce; it came with ok mashed potatoes, and the waiter was accommodating about substituting grilled vegetables for the prescribed asparagus side dish. Service was good, without excessive waiting at either end of the meal. I'll be going again!

Delicious fresh food, a lot of which is sourced from their very own urban farm. The salmon burger was easily one of the best I've ever had, and the veggie chili was hearty and filling. I also decided to get the Mac & Cheese appetizer and split it with my dinner-mate, but that could have easily been a meal on its own. I'll be coming here again.

As a fellow restaurant owner (in Massachusetts) who was visiting Phili, I just want to applaud y'all! Truly had a fantastic meal, service was prompt and polite, and possibly the best Caesar dressing I've ever had! Bravo!

Ordered ahead of time. They forgot to put a part of my order in the bag. I called them to let them know. They sent someone to my job to bring me what they forgot. Awesome customer service! Well done!
