My favorite place for restaurant week by far. Go every year in the fall. A must!
Our food was delicious. Will definitely be back
Very nice staff, food was delicious! Would definitely recommend this place!
Went with my boyfriend for restaurant week! The food was delicious and the service was great. Portion size for restaurant week was very generous. We already decided we want to go back so we can try more things on the menu!
My friend and I felt rushed. We were seated at 10:30 am, our food was delivered by 10:45 am and our plates were cleared by 11:00 am even though we had another hour of our seating time left.
Food is always good at Bud and Marylin's. The nashville hot chicken is really excellent - as are any of their fried chicken dishes. Always save room for dessert, the funfetti cake is well worth it.
The outdoor set up for covid-times is OK - you are far enough from the sidewalk that you don't feel too close to pedestrians, which is a plus in center city. Locust street does tend to be busy, so keep that in mind.
Awesome food and service as always. Wish I still lived in Philly...so I could eat there more often!
We had a great time. This was the first time we have come here but it won’t be the last. The food and drinks were great. Our server David was the best!!!!!
Great spot for brunch. Incredible menu! Plates were smaller than usual, so feel free to order a few extra dishes.
Dropping my daughter off at Temple. We decided to grab a bite at your establishment. Loved everything. Our server was fantastic. He was training a new waitress. We all Loved our choices.
Food was just ok, not nearly as good as the first time we went. Drinks were great. Service was atrocious (from the waiter, the hostess was great).
Delicious food, great service, outdoors with plenty of shade.
Get job providing safe outdoor dining
Service was terrible, didn’t check on us ever, and they weren’t happy to split the check between 3. Also the food portions are very small so be prepared!! We sat outside which was nice but it’s a very loud street with lots of cars.. overall, I won’t be returning. Prices were good but the food was too small to justify it. And, they automatically add gratuity.
The restaurant was very nice, the staff was pleasant, and the food/ drinks were 👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾
Excellent weather, food and service by David. A real treat during this Pandemic. This Safran.Turney group is beyond wonderful and we are grateful that they have stayed open at this time.
A great brunch place ! Will go back for lunchtime.
Food was great as always but sitting outside took a bit getting used to. With this being the new way to do business, I was still excited to enjoy one of my favorite restaurants. Will definitely return.
Great experience, and they’ve acclimated to COVID better than most.
First time dining out since the pandemic started, and what a great decision it was to chose this place. I appreciate the care they took to protect customers while still providing an attractive experience. We went for brunch and each ordered one of the specials, plus shared the hush puppies, which were incredible. The portions are generous and the preparation is impeccable. The food itself is delicious and the service was friendly and efficient and helpful. I can't imagine a better start to my return to Philly dining out.
It was great
Took my boyfriend here for brunch on a sunny Saturday and everything about the experience was enjoyable! The food is amazing and the drinks were so fun. Highly recommend this place!
amazing food. Good selection.
DIning Al Fresco in Center City Philadelphia - great atmosphere, amazing food and exceptional service.
Great food and great drinks!
We loved the brunch.. even in Covid times it was a great experience.. the food and drinks were divine. Thanks
Bud & Marilyn's is excellent. I've eaten there five times now and each experience was a memorable one. The food is delicious, the service is superb, and I love dining al fresco at their sidewalk tables. All in all a FIVE STAR experience!
Ordered the jambalaya. It was almost inedible. Came as a plate of mushy red rice with tiny bits of chicken and a few small shrimp. Presented with the entire plate dusted with chili powder. Never had jambalaya like that. Extremely disappointed.
have not been downtown since pandemic so one of the only reasons that would do it is Bud and Marilyn's fried chicken promo and as always it was superb. Eating in the street was a little strange but good food there trumps all else. I sure had missed the whole coming into the city. I do have one complaint or observation. I had read repeatedly that calling in your reservation helps the restaurant. I did try and do that but no one had the courtesy to call me back so I went to Open Table. Got my ressie and all was good but in these trying times for restaurants they should make the effort.
Great service for a last minute reservation . It started raining but the staff was very proactive and communicative about what was going to happened and got everything else boxed up!
Thank you for thinking ahead!
It rained hard so brunch was a little/lot wet
Vacation brunch. The food was amazing!! We loved our meal and still had food envy for everything else. We will be coming back soon.
Amazing grub. Definitely one of Phillys best kept secrets. Food was spot on. Best beef and broccoli ever!!!
The food is always fantastic. I never knew there was a little garden area and it was the best seat in the “house.” They were a little disorganized trying to check in reservations, check in walk ups and take care of food pickups but their food is always worth waiting.
Really enjoyed this place, super chill great drinks and reasonable prices!
We loved those drink pouches! And the fried chicken was yummy
Outdoor happy hour was delicious! Nashville hot chicken buns and shrimp buns were so good. I wish I could have had 25 servings of cheese curds but then I would have a heart attack.
Great experience. Casual dinning at a good price point.
Really dig the new additions to the menu. Got the Brick Chicken and a glass of Tempranillo and it was magnificent! Everything was fantastic as always, but that Sticky Bun Sundae - holy balls.
My only complaint is that the pretzel buns are gone. RIP, you will be missed.
10/10 as usual.
Never disappoints! I love this place so much.
