Marathon - 16th & Sansom Ratings and Reviews
Marathon is a nicely decorated neighborhood restaurant. The décor reminded me a bit of a steakhouse and the atmosphere is lively but not loud. We seated at the window which was great for people watching. Our server Holly was excellent and I knew we would get great service from her the moment she greeted us. We started with the Marathon Sampler app. Lightly breaded calamari and chicken fingers, sweet potato fries, and cheesesteak wontons which comes with a few dipping sauces, one of which was jalapeno with a nice kick! I had the Marathon burger with Vermont cheddar and caramelized onions. The burger was quite large, around 8-9 ounces. Very juicy and cooked medium rare as ordered. The county bun was light but hearty and did not fall apart. As usual, I had a side of sweet potato fries. I could not get enough of these! My husband had the grilled salmon with mustard sauce, mashed potatoes and asparagus. Salmon was firm and tender and the sauce paired nicely with the fish and vegetable. Even though they were relatively busy, our food came out quickly. Overall, it was an excellent experience.
My hubby and I both had delicious meals. He had jambalaya and it was the turkey platter for me. The cranberry sauce was the best. The turkey is roasted in house and the mashed and broccoli were well prepared. The broccoli had no seasonings or butter which I prefer- more healthful. The service was great. It’s a terrific value. We will definitely return.
We had reservations and were seated immediately on a busy Saturday night. My crab cake platter was delicious as was the potato leek soup. My husband ordered chicken parm and said
the chicken was tough. He requested more marinara sauce for his pasta. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. We like eating at Marathon Grill after a concert and visiting the holiday events in the city.
It’s a casual spot that I went to catch up with a friend so it was a good choice for that, but the waitress forgot about us and we didn’t have service for a pretty long time. The food was decent, but nothing special. Any tables near the doors or windows were really cold.
I walk by everyday on my daily lunch walks and the place is always packed! My family was looking for a place to have dinner after enjoying some of the holiday festivities in town. So I thought it would be a great time to try it out. It was a Wednesday night so it wasn’t packed which was perfect for conversation. It was warm and welcoming. The food was awesome and reasonably priced. My family loved it! We are definitely going back!!
Ate with my younger brother who was visiting me this weekend. Marathon is one of my go to places. The apps sampler was perfect and the wontons were delicious. The brisket was good but could have had more flavors. The chicken tacos were really good and the breaking was perfect. Great meal overall
We were in town for parent's weekend at my daughters college, so I made reservations for my husband and I and our two daughters for dinner. 6pm on a Saturday night. We were 20 minutes late, and thankfully they held our table for us. The food was excellent - very creative appetizers, and the specials were outrageous. The Spicy chicken tacos, & philly cheesesteak won-tons were favorites. Jordan was our waitress and she was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely return.
