My wife and I frequent this location most Friday evenings. The food is always fresh and tasty. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive and always make us feel welcome.
We were promptly seated, the food was excellent and the service was great!
The Marathon Grill has great food, and it's a convenient place to meet in town. I just wish there were more servers working the day my friend and I had lunch. We weren't in a rush, but it took a long, long time to get our food and have the check paid with a credit card.
Loved Marathon! A great location in center city, perfect for bringing friends who are in town. The street is blocked off which makes for a perfect ambience.
Fun sitting outside!
Ate outside, so not noisy. Simple fare, well made. Nice staff.
Clsoes pretty early
Second time here and the food was again delicious! Drinks r equally delicious! I like how the menu switches up from time to time. Service was excellent!
Service was great. It was very busy Saturday afternoon. Apps came out pretty quick and ahead of our meals. Server was nice and attentive.
Marathon exceeded our expectations, by a lot. The service was excellent - the food was fresh, salads were tasty, perfect amount of dressing.
Nice selection of drinks.
The food was very much bland and tasted like it was frozen. I ordered the beef brisket which came with mashed potatoes , carrots, and small shallots. The meat was bland and tasted like it was a frozen meal, almost like Salisbury steak. The carrots were HUGE chunks; very thickly chopped. I had ordered cheesesteak wontons for my appetizer and it was good. My only disappointment was my entree which I didn’t finish. The manager/waitress was kind enough to remove it from the bill
Soy Ginger Salmon w/ couscous and mixed vegetables, Vegetarian Chili, Calamari, and excellent service? You just can’t go wrong. Been coming here for years and it always feels like the first time. Thanks Marathon, you never disappoint!
We went with a party of 8 - 4 adults and 4 kids. We made a reservation on open table. We were running a few minutes late (we were traveling from out of state and hit some traffic) and they were very nice about it. Our table was ready within a few minutes. The hostess was very friendly. Our server was also very friendly. All of our orders were correct and our food was good. I would definitely go back if I’m in the area.
They lost my credit card under the deck and gave me a hard time about it afterwards. Waiter was barely around. Unfortunate time for a place I heard great things about
Good, honest food. Ate outside, so was not too noisy. Waiter was very nice. I tried a new beer, which I did not like at all. He asked how things were. I commented that the beer was weird (but it was merely conversational). He insisted on replacing it with another, despite my saying that it was what I had ordered to try.
Reasonable prices. Not fancy, but good.
We arrived five minutes before our reservation time. Restaurant said they needed five minutes, so we waited on the street. During that time, they didn’t set up for our party of seven. It seemed like they had no idea we were coming despite our reservation.
They seated us on the street after pushing some tables together - it didn’t smell great. The food was very slow - took about 40 minutes. Wouldn’t recommend.
The server that i and was bit over seated and she wasn’t personable at all also she was slamming drinks didn’t want to get to know us many of her tables were waiting to pay or looking around for her, plus there was like a 5 minute wait until she greeted us and it was no name given… the food was very bland
Birthday dinner. Not as nice of a restaurant as I thought. Food was great, atmosphere could’ve been better. Restaurant was freezing and we were situated right under a vent. Nevertheless, I will be back or order takeout in the future…
Our dinner at Marathon was not unpleasant. Covid-19 precautions, impacts and exhaustion of both staff and customers seemed to diminish our dining experience more at this restaurant than similar dining at this price point elsewhere. This was our first visit to Marathon. I would probably try other nearby restaurants rather than return. 18 hour short ribs looked like soup meat. Well done beef doesn't have to be gray and flavorless to be tender. Staff seemed totally disinterested in customers experience.
Great atmosphere and food! Definitely recommend for lunch in the outdoor cafe!
The street and seating area were dirty and seedy. The restaurant was clearly understaffed as our server had too many tables to wait on. We waited 25 minutes after we sat down before we ordered.
Kayla was great and so was the manager. Ribs, shrimp risotto, and salmon were all good.
It was great sitting outside in the evening
Delicious food at a great price. Great food and drink options. Outdoor seating is on the street in an enclosed patio. Convenient location
The food ranged from delicious 10/10 matzo ball soup to 1/10 over-fried, tough calamari. Spicy chicken sandwich was also over-fried, dry and on a big bun that threw off the protein to bread ratio so vital to a good sandwich. Easy on the fry time, guys!
18 hour cooked short rib was delicious but needed to be served with a side salad to complete the meal.
Service was very minimal, I had to ask another waitress for a refill of ice tea, and our waitress finally checked on “how’s your food” more than halfway through…. either way my usual 30% min tip did go down to only 20% this time.
Great place though, never had a bad meal and I’ve eaten here several times.
Ate outside.... It was wonderful..... Definitely will return....
Waiter was extremely slow
They accepted too many reservations/walk ins but did not have enough staff to accommodate the crowd. We were told food would take at least an hour. Once we received our food, it was good. Cocktails were great. They just need to get better organized and turn people away and/or hire more staff.
They were not ready for Labor Day. Man
Lively crowd, interesting wine list, decent food and standard service. We dined outside and it is pleasant to have that section of street closed to traffic.
One mishap we ordered ham and cheese received turkey and cheese. The server was very polite and apologize. She took it off the bill. I recommend your restaurant all the time.
Service was excellent, food was excellent - came in for breakfast and everything was SO good! Even my 6 year old niece loved it.
Went for brunch and had a great time. The (cherry?) mimosas were yummy!
Very limited vegetarian options
All good. Food always good. Service excellent and pleasant outdoor dining.
Great casual dining spot with delicious options for a great price. Enjoyed our lunch and would recommend!
We had a great experience! Service was fantastic!
Really good service and really good food!! I had the brisket sandwich with sweet potato fries. My companions had salads. Delicious!! Waitstaff refilled my soda without being asked. Hope to return!!
great brunch food, exquisite french fries and we had a great server named connor!
We sat outside and although right next to the street, it wasn’t as loud as I expected. The food was delicious. Drinks were good too.
