Marathon Grill is a great place to grab a quick bite on your lunch break or even meet up with a friend. The wait staff is friendly and the food is served quickly. Best item on the menu: portobello and hummus sandwich.

Of all the Marathons in Philly, this one stands out above the others. I've been to this one the most, and have always had friendly and quick service. They play great music and have good, affordable food which they're not afraid to change due to dietary restrictions (they'll do anything to any salad if you ask). A nice place to stop for lunch or a quick bite to eat when you don't want to spend $50 a person on a meal.

I work across the street from the Marathon Grill at 13th and Chestnut and over the years have gone there for lunch on two ocassions to eat in and about four for take out. I have to say this is some of the most terrible food I have eaten.

Being at a friend's going away get together, I got a taste of slow service from a tall, voluptuous but slow and inattentive barmaid. Out of grapefruit juice. Out of Guinness on tap. First time there but I believe in first impressions.

Pros: Barmaid's looks (I'm a male chauvinist oink oink).

Cons: Barmaid; Karoke night was Rap & too loud. Youth oriented.

I work near two Marathon's so I decided to try them out. I had a meal at the Marathon on chestnut, off broad street and had a miserable experience. I thought perhaps it was a particularly bad Marathon, so I ate a few weeks later at the Marathon on the corner of Sansom and 16th--just slightly better. First the food was just ok-- a step above a hospital cafeteria. The staff treated the customers fine, but what was horrible though was seeing how the staff was treated-- not nice. The smoothies are probably the few things worth having here.

PROS: convenient locations; not too pricey
CONS: mediocre food, bad mannered management

Many casual dining places have that "urgent" feeling to them - you know, where you feel as if you're being forced out as soon as you sit down. Not so much by the servers, that is, but by the fast pace of the environment including the kitchen staff (much of whom is visible from seating), the wait staff, the "usual" diners, etc. Prices are average, food is tasty. Nothing too creative on the menu, but you can't go wrong with their buffalo wraps.

My coworkers and I have gotten sick of going out for lunch everyday, so we decided to try Marathon Grills Corporate Catering. They faxed us over a menu with tons of great selections. Even Mary Ann, the office Vegetarian can't get enough of
