We booked our table on a spur of the moment impulse and I am so glad we did. The food was amazing, as were the drinks! We were seeing a play so the location to the academy of music was ideal. It was a great pick!
This a fun place to visit. The food was very good-really enjoyed the wedge salad-and our servers were attentive. We will definitely return!
I went to Bud and Marilyn’s for a quick bite on a Sunday afternoon. The brunch menu wasn’t too expansive but the food options were great. The cheese curds were awesome! The Moscow mule stood out as well.
We love visiting B&M on our way to the theater. It’s been a couple of years, but you did not disappoint. Great atmosphere, good service, fantastic grapefruit mimosa and the Huevos were delish! Also appreciate the covid measures.
after theatre dining. quiet and fun. food was tasty...drinks were delicious.
Stopped in for dessert and a cocktail, we ordered the funfetti cake, which was extremely dried out to the point of crumbling apart. My husbands cocktail had some type of mysterious floaters in it so we had to order a fresh drink. Our waitress was lovely, and service and seating was fast and great, but dessert was a huge let down.
Excellent food and beautiful presentation. Great date night. All staff very friendly.
Always reliable food and good service. An excellent place to go after a performance.
Always so fun at Bud and Marilyn’s. The Korean short ribs were to die for and the lamb stroganoff was worthy of plate licking. Can’t wait til I return!!
Great experience! Delicious food and our server was extremely knowledgeable.
Food is awesome and cocktails are just as awesome!
Our train was late and we had event tickets, so we were in a huge hurry. Our friendly waitress helped us choose foods that would come out quickly, got us out of there in record time, the food was delicious, the service was great, and I love Bud & Marilyns!
I always love a brunch at B&M. Their food is delicious, I have my favorite servers--it just feels good. I always ask to sit outside... inside gets really noisy. Shakshuka and the friend cheese curds are my favs!
The best meatloaf & wedge salad !
Great menu with an emphasis on fresh, healthful items that are also exotic and not your bar-that-happens-to-have-a-kitchen kind of place, very affordable, full bar selection, and exceptional service.
I went with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday and was so disappointed. The food came quickly but was room temperature/cold, as if it had been sitting around for a while. I ordered the spicy chicken sandwich, and the bread was not warmed or toasted and was basically just soggy hamburger bun from the supermarket bag. The food is incredibly overpriced for the quality in general. I would probably only go back for drinks, not food.
We were very pleased with our experience at Bud and Marilyn's from start to finish!
Made a reservation for dinner before a show at the Kimmel Center. Not too fancy, not too casual. SUPER food and drinks!
Good time! Good night out!
A very good meal - first time there since the shutdown. It was GREAT !
DELICIOUS fried chicken and wonderful service!
Visiting Philly and had heard good things about Bud & Marilyn’s. It lived up to the hype. Very retro and warm ambiance. Great date spot. One thing, the temperature inside the restaurant was fairly warm - not hot but with that many people inside one place, it does get toasty.
Great food and ambiance! Was pleasantly surprised with the overall service
The food was delicious and unique. Even the chicken and waffles were on the healthy side but included eggs and bacon which is so different from other places! The burger included hollandaise sauce which was lovely as well. The place was very cute and it is a little overpriced but reasonable given the great experience!
We got there early and they were able to get us in, which was great because we were trying to get to a concert.
The menu was diverse enough that all tastes were accommodated!
Brunch before Sunday orchestra was just perfect! Our server was on the ball...
so pleasant, helpful and quick with our order. She returned to make sure any need was met, filled our tea, and then had our checks ready in record time to make the concert. We felt very comfortable within our "glass walls" and all the pleasant staff.
The waitress was very accommodating.
Bacon and home fries were a bit undercooked. The waitresses had was aloof. You guys don’t have any kinds of jelly for your toast except for one special kind. Every brunch place should have some basic jelly’s because not everyone wants an exotic jelly or only have one flavor. I enjoy this place so I hope this is a one-off situation.
Great for a unique experience with an interesting twist on food
Went for restaurant week and was surprised by the wonderful selection of appetizers and entrees. Service was great and food was delicious.
We went for Restaurant Week. Our server Rayne was phenomenal. The food was very good. The Nashville Hot Buns were a great starter, as were the cheese curds which were just lightly battered and not greasy at all. The entrees were huge! Overall a great meal and great service.
Great spot for date night! Outdoor seating was a little backed up with other reservation parties leaving but was the perfect amount of time to grab a drink at the bar while waiting. Hostess was so sweet and kept giving us little updates to make sure we knew she didn’t forget about us!
Great fried chicken!! Vibe is great! Good place for a date or a small group of people.
The Froseé is ridiculous.
It was great portions and a good menu. The salmon was a little underdone for my tasting and the apple crisp dessert was really cinnamon-y. I love the outdoor dining option. It was a fun night with friends to catch up.
I had the hangar steak, pirogies, and wedge salad. I highly recommend all of them. The seating is comfortable and the ambiance is relaxing and pleasant. The servers did a great job. I ordered the whisky cocktail with the sage in it, and it was probably one the best cocktails that I ever had.
This restaurant never disappoints & is my go-to spot when I want great food & service. The menu is ever-changing, which is always a plus for me.
Amazing food and service
Food and service was great. So good to have some things back to normal. We love this place ❤
Food was great as always. Very covid safe and our waiter was great!
