About the restaurant
Marathon has served the neighborhoods of Philadelphia for over 25 years as a family-run restaurant group. We serve well-made American classics, and strive to source the freshest food locally available to us, including from our own Marathon Farm in Brewerytown, Philadelphia. Our favorite farm to table items include our grass-fed Cheesesteak, free-range Turkey Plate, and fluffy Omelettes made with cage-free eggs.


We love food, but more importantly we create the food that people love to eat. We set out each day to provide our guests with a complete feel-good dining experience in a casual setting. We offer warm and personal hospitality rooted in a real concern for our guests' experience and we believe that everyone should be able to afford delicious food. We bring people together through food, personal connections and artistic spaces.

Everyone's food was delicious. Highlights included the Gazpacho and the burgers. Turkey meatloaf was also tasty. The prices are very fair compared to what we typically see in similar places, and the location is very convenient to Center City. The place, like so many others is noisy as the surfaces are hard... Service was slow, and one server (not our waiter) who delivered a couple of the meals just about growled at us and threw the plates at us. I suspect this was atypical and suspect there was a back story we weren't privy to.

We make everything here from our chips to our oven roasted meats and do not limit ourselves to one cuisine. A true scratch kitchen!

Went in on a holiday weekend so it was less crowded. The food was really good. Our waiter, Joe, was really gracious and patient and funny. He was amazing.

This was a great place to have dinner before The Stones concert. Good food reasonably priced. It was loud so if you’re looking for a quiet dinner, this isn’t for you! Our server Taylor did a great job making sure we had what we needed amid the chaos of a packed restaurant of concert goers and graduation celebrants!

About the restaurant
We're SERIOUS about fun food. That means despite our chill atmosphere, all our burgers and bites are hand-crafted from scratch and made-to-order. From our homemade buns to our hand-smashed 100% certified angus beef burgers, our food is meticulously hand-picked by Executive Chef Pryce Morhalo using only the freshest ingredients. We're raising the bar for casual dining. And frankly, we’re in a league of our own.

Our Shoobie Shakes shook Philly. They're straight out of dream: a massive milkshake, swirled with whipped cream and fresh chocolate, rimmed with the dust of cookies or graham crackers, and topped with decadent desserts—an entire slice of cake, or a melt-in-your-mouth s’more. But these milkshakes aren’t just for kids. Our shakes deliver an unforgettable experience to cherish with someone special.

Dietary restrictions? No problem. We're proud to offer a wide variety of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, making our dining experience exclusively inclusive.
