It was my daughter’s 25th birthday and she has been there before. I made reservations over a week ago for five of us and when we got there they put us at a table that one of us had to practically sit in the actual aisle where you are constantly bothered by all the passer-biers. When I had asked to have our table moved they said they couldn’t move us. There was a table clearly in our view seating that we asked to move and they put three people there that came after us. They were very rude and not accommodating. We will not be back.

Great brunch with my daughters. Seating is a little tight but no more so than most establishments in the city.

We received a gift card with the Spring into Philly Hotel package. This was a great choice for brunch. Probably one of the best breakfast meals. Loved the atmosphere and theme. The place felt so vibrant

The only complaint , HOT food was served on COLD plates. By the time the food came out, it was already cold due to the cold plates. Any time a waiter can bring your food in his bare hands, theirs a problem. Some food which was on the menu, I had no problem with the cold plates, or fries in paper, but hot food, need hot plates.

The food here is awesome. I've been to B&M and am planning on going again next week with my team for a birthday dinner. The food is great, it comes out fast (we had limited time since we had tickets to a lecture). The drinks are also fun and creative.

Fantastic food and great vibe. Two times in a row, the fried chicken and biscuits knocked our socks off. Interesting craft cocktails. Please remind your staff not to clear plates until the whole party has finished eating.

A new favorite place for us to eat before the theater. Great food, unique presentation at times, reasonably priced and reasonable cost for wine. My favorite is the fried chicken served with two delicious biscuits. Crispy but moist inside. Scallops are also wonderful.

Weekend menu is brunch. Not a lot of lunch options or healthy options. Tasty, but mostly comfort food.

You have to have the fried chicken! They give you TWO huge biscuits and it's all super delicious. The slush of the night was also yummy. Bathrooms are hip with an old school retro vibe.

The food and service were fabulous. The noise level, for me, was just too loud. However it probably would not stop me from eating there again.

First time here, and a great spot. The decor was really cool and relaxed. The service was great and very knowledgeable of the menu. Had the cheese curds which was sooo tasty. I had the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. This was out of this world, highly recommend. looking forward in going back for dinner.

I’ve been here before but this time it just didn’t click. The food was all a bit salty. The server was really awkward (hard to describe really) and the dessert (which I’ve had before and was craving), wasn’t the same as I remember. Maybe it was just a bad night.

i went with two friends. one had the stroganoff and the meat was burnt! the other said the veggies on her scallop entree plate were too peppery, and my brick chicken was too greasy.
the place was hopping then at 6:30 and our waitress was not able to be very attentive.

i always considered the marci turney restaurants to be flawless but this time i was sorry i made the choice to dine there and kept apologizing to my friends. also going at that time was so noisy that we could barely hear each other. this was a lively place and i didn't realize that they did such a booming business at that hour.

This is the first time we have visited Bud & Marilyn's. We went there before a show at the Academy of Music because it was close. The entire experience was excellent. Our server David was outstanding. He listened to everything we wanted and delivered without a problem. The food was excellent and we got out in plenty of time to go to our show. We will definitely go back to Bud & Marilyn's again.

I again enjoyed my dining experience at Bud and Marilyn’s. I sadly dropped a biscuit and there wasn’t time for the five second rule to apply before I was offered another!!

The Nashville hot buns were delicious and yes spicy good. Wedge salad very good but did ask for dressing on side but it was not. Will try that request next time. Chicken platter very tasty as were the biscuits that accompanied the chicken. Had an excellent draft beer that server recommended. Dining at 6:00 was great since the noise level was okay. A later dinner time might be too loud for me.
