Bud & Marilyn's
Need to book at 7:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Everything was good until the mouse showed up. When we mentioned this to the waiter he joked that it was a restaurant pet. Then claimed that they are all over Philadelphia. I don't know about that. Gave us a 10% discount and brought the check out immediately. Could wait to get us and the couple next to us out as quickly as possible. We were seated next to the front door so maybe, just maybe he had just snuck in but they didn't seem too concerned.
The food was well prepared - the roasted chicken, scallops and fish and chips - and enjoyed. The service was good, but the restaurant was very noisy and table conversation was difficult. The desserts were quite large - three scoops of ice cream and very rich and overly sweet pies.
We will return but not too soon.
Delicious food and excellent service! We will definitely go back for brunch, lunch and/or dinner.
Fantastic, as usual. Great value, awesome ambience, excellent food.
We were staying at the Independent Hotel and went there before a show. It was very convenient. They were very busy but server was on top of it and we had no problem getting our food and drinks quickly. We had the steak tartare, cheese curds, chicken sandwiches. All great. So good we came back after the show!
Totally enjoyed dinner at Bud and Marilyn’s. Tasty food, excellent service-
It was an around wonderful experience. Highly recommend
As usual, a delicious meal and delightful and knowledgeable servers. Thanks!
The food was fabulous and our server Hanna was very friendly and courteous. She provided recommendations that were excellent. This was our first experience at Bud and Marilyn's but would definitely go back.
I met up with a friend prior to an 8 pm show. We had a wonderful time at the restaurant. The waiter got us our check on time, so we were able to make our curtain. Food was delicious. Note- It is a bit loud on a Sat night, but that is to be expected.
Been there many times but this time was not up to par - sat in front section (very noisy) - one of our party ordered the salmon entree order was same as table next to us BUT portion size and presentation were very different- a little more consistency from kitchen would be appreciated
Great experience! Food was delicious. Drinks were really good. Service was on point. Wish we lived in town because this would definitely be my favorite spot. Like everyone else has said- get the cheese curds!
Great food, great ambiance, great modern look to the restaurant. Service was great without feeling rushed/pressured.
Was there for Saturday brunch. The restaurant was bright, the atmosphere was energetic and fun. Loved the layout with the placement of the bar and dining tables. From the person who greeted you at the door to our server and all the wait staff, everyone was warm, friendly and inviting in a way that made you comfortable and feel like they really appreciated your business. The brunch choices were unique and varied and what we ordered was delicious (you have to try the “sticky bun”). When we left we felt like we just attended a great party with friends. I guess we’ll be going back!
Fried cheese curds, short ribs stroganoff, and fried chicken/biscuits were amazing. Also had this fantastic wedge salad with interesting toppings that were outstanding. Tables were a bit loud and cramped but otherwise perfect experience.
Amazing. Great dinner, even better service. Food and drinks arrived promptly despite the Friday night crowd. Our waiter, Mike was super attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was outstanding. Started with cheese curds and the heirloom tomato salad to split. Both delicious. For dinner we both had Marilyn’s Fried Chicken. I was going to try something else and have some of my husband’s, but as I saw servers walk by delivering this dish to other tables, I knew I wanted one of my own. It did not disappoint! The standout for us was the dessert. Banana Cream Pie. It is definitely not your average. It was probably the best dessert I’ve ever had. Even after a very filling dinner and a declaration to only have a few bites, I ended up eating more than my husband. We both agree it was one of our favorite meals and can’t wait to return. The GM who sat us and visited our table during our meal could not have been more accommodating or friendly. We will be back!
Birthday dinner - excellent all around!
Dining here was a treat! Having lived in Southern Wisconsin for 4 years, I appreciated the history and attention to detail in the vintage midwestern decor. The fried cheese curds appetizer was to die for. Had a bit of nostalgia reminiscing of special trips to Culver’s for fried curds and custard. I ordered the short rib stroganoff and it was heavenly. Finished off the night with the banana cream pie. Simply divine. Wonderful place!!
Our server was superb!! Our food was even better!! So quick and tasted absolutely outstanding!! Can’t wait to try their brunch!
We heard good things about this restaurant. They did not disappoint. Fast service and great food
Food and service was great . It was a bit too loud to talk .
GREAT SERVICE !
We had a wonderful time
Will absolutely go back for another delicious meal
The dining room was too loud. I couldn’t hear the server when she spoke to our table.
This is one of my favorite Philly restaurants. The food is delicious. The staff is friendly. We always have a good time!
Bud and Marilyn’s is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant that offers excellent comfort food prepared in slightly
unusual ways! The food is great, and the service is just as good! I will come back here again!
Great drinks, fun and delicious menu- miss the lobster buns! Salad was small, fried chicken and stroganoff were stellar, but the biggest standout was the terrific service from our waiter- he was fantastic and made the evening.
$17 cosmopolitan on the silent upgrade/up charge a bit of a gouge, and unfortunately becomes the experience that is most remembered about B&M’s. That and the fried cheese curd. Get the cheese curd. Definitely.
Got seated at reservation time quick food prep
Everything was great! We had the cheese curds, Nashville hot buns, salmon dish, and short rib stroganoff. For dessert we enjoyed the confetti and the chocolate cakes. Sipped on an O-F but I can’t recall which one. Will be dining again!
Food Amazing !!
Drinks Dangerously Delicious!!
Who would have thought
Cinnamon and Grapefruit
Service On Point
“Delicious food and very prompt service. Great place to take to someone visiting.”
First time and we will definitely go back! Food and service was very good. Will need reservations.
Consistently great Brunch.
It was very noisy
My husband thought it was the best fried chicken he's ever had.
The cheese curds, while heavy, are so freaking good! The fried chicken sandwich is amazing, but I could do with a bit more of that jalapeno sauce and a bit more spice. The bread pudding dessert was one of the best things I've ever eaten! My only complaint, as far as ambiance, is that it's loud and packed, so conversation is difficult. The decor is adorable, and drinks are good. The value for restaurant week is amazing. I'll be back again and again!
Some of the food was tasty but some was a little heavy handed on the salt for my preferences. I would recommend that if there is an à la mode option for a dessert, maybe not put the ice cream on until just prior to taking it out. Mine was nearly completely melted by the time it arrived :-/
Found a hair in my food, but it was so good I couldn't even stop.
Pre theater dinner. Excellent waiter and delicious food and drink. Will definitely go back.
The food was great. Our server was awesome so sorry I can't remember his name to give him some personal praise.
