Went for brunch. Everything was delicious from the bloody Mary's to the chicken and waffles. Love this place
Bud & Marilyn's is consistently outstanding in every way. You can always count on having fantastic food and a great dining experience with excellent service.
The food was okay, the baked Mac and cheese was definitely not baked Mac and cheese. The fried chicken I had was dry, the server was barely around to help us, watched him serve other tables more than us and when we asked for shots they gave us watered down house tequila. Never coming back here. Definitely not worth it.
Outstanding in every way. Great service and the food was on point. I had the lamb and she had the salmon. Great atmosphere and a fun vibe.
The best drinks!!! A great time!
Had to wait 30 minutes before we were sat at our table. Staff didn’t seem to care.
Service was great and drinks were yummy
Always a great meal at Bud and Marilyn's! Great outdoor accommodations with heat. I highly recommend this little jewel.
Our group of 4 loved B&M’s. Everything from the ambiance to the food was wonderful. Our server was attentive, we tried several things on the menu and enjoyed it all. Chicken bun shareable was so good!! Also enjoyed the decor.
The food was awesome!
Excellent comfort food. The Mac and cheese was outstanding. The short rib scallopini was also excellent. Will return
Always a great dining experience.
like the small hut seating with the glass separators. warmer weather makes outdoor dining more enjoyable. food at brunch was fantastic!
Had an amazing brunch, sitting in their outdoor COVID structure. Service was great, the space accommodating and protected. Loved our food. The shakshuka was out of this world. Would order that again and again.
Great service and good food! We had a great time!
Food is always delicious
I had the grilled shrimp Benedict.My mom had the chicken and waffles. We were there for brunch. The food was hot and delicious. Our server Charlotte was great with suggestions as well as service. My family has gone for dinner before without me. I will definitely go back with friends.
Great food and service, I’m happy to see restaurant life coming back
Great meal! Super prompt and great atmosphere.
Great as usual...have yet to have a bad experience here...always enjoy the food and the cocktails are delicious
Avoid this restaurant at all costs. I went for a relatively Sunday brunch and although the restaurant was not overly crowded, service was a bit slow. The food was average at best but my group and I were more focused on enjoying our time together. This was soon ruined when we asked to switch out one drink on the menu for another. The waitress (Cassidy C.) became irate, stated that she would have to ask the manager because removing an item from the bill in exchange for another was "above her," and stormed away. Cassidy then slammed the check book on our table when she returned with an updated receipt. When she came back with our credit card, she legitimately threw the check book across our table while her manager stood by with a horrified expression on her face and apologized profusely. This was easily the most horrific dining experience I have ever had.
Been here twice for brunch with wife. We both enjoy the vibe, food, service, and the warm cinnamon roll.
The food was delicious! Loved the short rib stroganoff.
Celebrated my birthday in style with my favorite restaurant in Philly! Superb service and food as always!
Joshua was our server; he was super friendly and attentive. He also helped us decide on drinks and entrees, which displayed an impressive, accurate knowledge of the menu. We enjoyed the entire experience and can’t wait to go back!
amazing restaurant, came here on a saturday morning so was quite crowded, service was slow but food was worth it.
I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the hostess. My reservation was for outside, and I stopped at the restaurant to talk to the hostess a couple of hours before dinner. The hostess who was on duty was a woman with short blond hair. Because of my bad back, I needed to ask her if I could have one of the tables with chairs that had good lumbar support. Half of the tables had the chairs I could sit in with good lumbar support and the other half had chairs I could not possibly sit in. When I asked the hostess if I could have one of the tables with the chairs I could sit in, she was indifferent, unaccommodating, and even a little rude. She treated me like I was being a nuisance, and she wasn't even busy, because it was before 5:00 PM.
Since I had a 50% chance of getting the chairs I could sit in, I decided to take a chance. When I arrived at the restaurant, the hostess with the short blond hair was busy texting on her phone, but another very nice hostess sat me. As luck would have it, I was seated at a table with chairs I could sit in. But it was pure luck.
Our server was awesome!
Went for happy hour. Good food and service. Love the specials, I had the spring mule and it was sooo good! The cheese curds were also amazing. They have a ton of covered outside seating but it filled up fast on a Friday. So I’m glad we used open table!
Attentive and friendly staff. Food came out hot and quick. Love the cute outdoor booths! Felt safe and it was fun!
I’m not sure what the current rules are for Philly, but they made us order food which is fine. But they should also say that either when you place the reservation or when they seat you
a cute restaurant to grab brunch with your boo or your friends.
Amazing! Food and drinks were incredible. Waitress was nice and all covid safe. Would definitely recommend their pouch drinks!
First time eating in a pod! Everything was timed perfectly well, the food was spectacular and the whole night out was great.
We switched from brunch to dinner because my husband was looking forward to the fried chicken. The formula/recipe seems to have changed but not for the better. The chicken was dry and didn’t have much flavor. Two out of the 3 of us ordered the chicken so it was disappointing. We also ordered the funfetti cake for dessert and it too seemed dry. On a good note the crab fries and cheese curds were delicious.
Great service and ambiance. My burger was great but my bfs chicken sandwich was quite underwhelming. Nothing to really complain but we wouldn't order it again.
Great happy hour. Friendly staff. Delicious drinks.
Drove in 2 hours to have brunch, got seated around 2:30. Server looked like he was busy and got us drinks but was slow to come back and take our food order. He finally returned at 3:15 and then informed us we could no longer order brunch as the menu had changed. There was no warning or notice and we had been ready to order. He then transferred us to another server and It was just a crappy experience since I had such high expectations and drove in with this stop being the first on our trip.
This was a wonderful brunch spot!
