Wonderful food and drinks. We had steaks and cocktails. I originally requested to sit outside but when I arrived I asked to be moved inside because it looks so nice inside. The only thing I didn't like was the dessert. The dessert menu was boring and the banana pie was terrible. Will return.
Great time with friends.
The staff were very accommodating to our needs
Delicious as always! Great service also, very timely yet never intrusive.
I’ve sent my dissatisfaction directly to the restaurant. If the restrooms are this filthy, can’t imagine what the rest of the place looks like with the lights turned up … kind of grossed me out
We arrived for an early pre-theater dinner and got great seats by the window. First off I want to say how appreciative I am that Bud & Marilyn's takes seriously keeping folks safe by requiring masks to enter and all staff masked.
We decided to start the meal with cocktails. The Regal Beagle (gin, aperol, elderflower, lemon) was just perfect for my date and my order of a nonalcoholic Wile E Coyote (gingerale, lemon, and strawberry) were just the thing. In fact, my drink was so large it lasted throughout the meal.
My friend ordered the salmon as is usual for her but the meal itself was anything but usual. Perfectly cooked and surrounded by delicious veggies including paper-thin parsley radish salad, summer squash, wild mushrooms, and more. It was deelish!
I ordered the house extruded Gnochetti served with blistered Sungold tomatoes, shaved baby zucchini, and seasoned with crispy garlic, fresh tarragon, and pickled Fresno peppers, which were not too hot.
We had to high tail it to the theater but I will be back for dessert before too long. They serve La Colombe coffee (my favorite).
Can you tell; I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!
Food was great, service was great, music was upbeat and not overly loud. One of our favorite spots in center city!
AMAZING SHAKSHUKA!! Definitely recommend
Great food, excellent service! Fun appetizers to share and nice birthday cake.
Everything was wonderful! The server was very efficient & the food was delicious. Will definitely return.
Fine dinering in a really considered setting. Food was excellent and service was good, albeit a little pacy.
The staff is very friendly and food and drinks are great!
I’ve been disappointed the last few times I’ve eaten here - I just don’t think any of the Saffron Turney restaurants are as good as they used to be. I had a gift certificate which is why I went. I had the brick chicken and it just looked like a big mess on a plate. It was just okay. I probably will not return. There are so many other restaurants in Philly that are so much better. It’s disappointing as I used to think this group of restaurants were some of Philly’s best.
A perfect location for Sunday brunch! Our server was fantastic, attentive without being overbearing & super friendly! The food was great and the drinks were awesome. I love the outdoor chalets and the restaurant's attention to covid protocols. Overall, everything was topnotch and we'll definitely be back! Thank you!
Great vibe, great service, food was good. Overall a good experience.
Always my favorite brunch spot!
The restaurant had some amazing breakfast and lunch food, the beyond burger was fantastic! Definitely will return when I’m back in town.
Shrimp buns, cheese curds and drinks were amazing to start (LOVE that they serve STATESIDE vodka!) but really downhill from there. We had a great server but he couldn’t compensate for kitchen mistakes. Heirloom tomato and grilled peaches salad came out without any peaches (oops). Hangar steak came out lukewarm and seriously over-salted (what are they compensating for). Service was great but I’m not rushing back. Too many other great places in that area!
It was my first time at the restaurant although I passed it several times before. I sat outside and appreciated the bit of decor in the form of the tablecloth that was placed on the table. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. Overall, I look forward to returning to try out other food items and possibly visit inside.
Super friendly staff and delicious food
Disappointed in the pork belly bun. The shrimp buns and Wedge salad were very good!! Biscuit that can with the chicken were also very delicious however the chicken could have been more seasoned.
Really good food. It's always a go to when we want to go somewhere we know always delivers. Yummm
The food was delicious and the cocktails well made. Only negative was there weren’t fries with the fried chicken. But there were two huge biscuits. Take it down to one biscuit and add fries then it’s perfect!
My husband and I was thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our server was friendly and attentive. The fried chicken was moist and the batter was amazing. The short ribs over the homemade egg pasta was so tasty and the noodles were al dente and delicious. We would definitely recommend dining at Bud& Marilyn’s to our friends!
Nice place, very good service and the food is great too. The glasses were not very clean and there were bread crumbs on the chairs etc. but I think these are mistakes that can be easily corrected.
Bud and Marilyn’s is perfect. Two meals: two A’s. Wait staff outstanding.
Everything was amazing!
Food and Service!!
We went for brunch.
Definitely get the cinnamon roll!!!
The staff was all very friendly and attentive. The cheese curds were great, the rest of the food was fine. Nothing special, nothing wrong.
The roasted chicken was outstanding! 10 out of 10!!! The lighting is romantic and the staff was very welcoming. I’m definitely going back.
Food was amazing and service was great for dinner! Can’t wait to go for brunch
The server was great, very attentive and friendly. The burgers weren’t cooked to the requested temp. It was a little warm. It did not live up to the hype. Maybe next time.
Great place for a casual meal where the food is very good.
Good Food, friendly service, in these times limited menu.
The restaurant is an old standby it's always good for some down home comfort food.
Absolutely love this place!! My husband and I got cold brews to drink and shared the massive cinnamon bun, cheese curds, chicken and waffles and chicken sandwich. Everything was delicious. My only complaint is that the waffle was over cooked. Other than that everything was great!
Always a great meal no matter your menu choice. The weather cooperated so we sat outside and enjoyed the scenes
The food was sooooo good! I recommend the grapefruit Mimosas. The ambience was nice the service was excellent. Very pleased.
The Marylin’s Old Fashion was excellent as well as the Froze. The Marylin’s Fried Chicken was dry and lacked flavor however, the accompanying biscuits, pickles and butter were really good. The cheese curds were good as well as the meatloaf (came out a little cold though). The wait staff was nice as well.
Perfection as always!
Service and food was good but happy hour only being at the bar (esp on a rainy day when outdoor dining wasn’t super smart) felt weird. The light above us at the bar was broken and unlit which made it kinda hard to see. Overall really good and the waiters were super nice.
It was wonderful
