    I love Marathon

    This location at 16th and Sansom is really, really busy... which can back things up a bit and cause a small wait but the food is really good. Never had anything I didn't like here actually. The Servers are all friendly and all working really hard whenever I've been there.

    I'd like to say good words, but it's so difficult. The menu offers a great promise only to be crushed by the poor execution. Everything comes from a can! If you like bland tasteless crap, please go to MG. A salad costing $10 with virtually zero dressing and a few microscopic tuna flakes from a can should at least come with bread, but no-you pay for it, even if it's stale...Service is not even worth discussing. I see it's always packed, despite the food. People in America must like bland food, that's the only explanation why MG is still in business.

    Not all of the Marathons are bad....

    Whether I at home or at work there is a Marathon located within a few blocks. I will preface by stating that I LOVE the Marathon on the Square! The employees are some of the best service employees around, they are friendly, professional and you never need to ask for a refill. The food is excellent, even the take out. Unfortunately I cannot state the same about their sister Marathons 11th and Walnut and 13th and Chestnut. Take out is an unpleasant experience, from the phone call to order to picking it up. Watch out when you pick it up.....your salad may only have a tiny piece of chicken or tuna (especially the nicoise, honestly, barely any tuna in that 11.18 salad!) Look at the food before you leave the restaurant.

    This place is the worst!!!!!!!!!!

    I went there for the first time about 2 weeks ago for luch with a lady friend of mine and had a poor experience. Just all the basic stuff went wrong. First off if your a server and you take an order down in your head because you dont like a pen and pad you better hope is right if you think your gonna get tipped! Of course in my case there was no pen an pad.... low and behold she got the order wrong. My salad came out at the same time as my burger which only took about an hour and the womens milkshake took about a half hour and that came out wrong also. My "well done" burger was still bleeding and I ask if the chicken in the ceasar salad would be hot.... was told yes.... and it came out cold. Starving and in an already bad mood I went to attempt to eat and there were no utensils! We sat there for about 10 mins to see if our server would notice but of course she didnt. I got up and asked the manager if they if he could provide them for us. He was embarassed. Furthermore my drink sat empty for about 45 min until the server came back and the proceeded to ask if we were ok. I gave her the blankest stare almost telling her she was an idiot without using any words. I actually had to stop her from walking away to say "hey can i get another ice tea?!" To cap it all of it to another half hour for the check...That was almost the first time i ever walked out on a check. I was seriously mad at myself for tipping the girl 5 bucks because she didnt deserve a dollar. Its a shame beause i frequent many places all over the city and I am a great tipper being in the business myself. The only positive thing that i can say about this place is that the door works both ways and I was able to get out of there! The manager of this place should be fired along with the entire staff if they hope to stay open. Do yourself a favor an choose micky d's instead and save your money!

    I am just writing to say I agree with everything on this page. There's no need for me to say again what's been spoken. I personally blame the ownership. Not stable if you know what I mean.

    I don't usually get angry but

    Drinks took 25 min to come out. Dinner took 70 min to come out. Coffee took 15 min to come out so of course we cancelled desert. Waiter forgot drink orders. Salmon was average. Hamburger was supposed to have carmelized onions but that was too much for them, and it couldn't be sent back because the person who ordered it was hypoglycemic and had to eat SOMETHING as there was no bread or anything before the 70 min meal came. Nearby parking cost $25. Very embarrassing as 3 guests were visiting Philadelphia from Arizona. Eat at your own risk - you were warned.

    decent lunch or breakfast spot

    food is inconsistent. best bet is the salmon burger with spinach and cheese and a couple of the mexican breakfast items. best to order the bottled iced tea because the fresh iced tea is very ordinary. salads are disappointing.
