A mouse ran over my foot! I told the manager, and he just said thanks for being understanding. Whaaaat? Very sexist response. Then he proceeded to blame it on nearby construction. But clearly, it's a problem known by management, but yet the restaurant continues to remain open. Extremely disturbing!
Also, the food was not great. We had the mussels, caesar salad, sweet potato fries, grilled cheese (cheese was not even melted), and chocolate lava cake (not worth the calories). Overall a very disappointing experience. The waiter also split our tab incorrectly, and supposedly, management was unable to rectify the tab.
Service and food were great as always.
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.
Nothing special. I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie special. It was tasty, but it wasn’t a pot pie. It was all the ingredients of a pot pie poured in a bowl with a square puff pastry floating on top. No crust. A little weird, but again, pretty tasty.
The Wait staff, managers and servers are always friendly and fun to talk to. Makes the meals enjoyable.
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.
The food and service was very good. The Marathon burger was awesome. All there burgers are great.
The food was good however it was very chilly in there could have used my coat. And when we wanted to wait or we couldn't find him.
Attentive service, good, reasonable food, just what we wanted
It would have been useful to know beforehand that the restaurant does not accept Discover as a form of payment. It was inconvenient; otherwise, everything else was fine.
