Did the AirBnB thing in Philadelphia while attending a conference. After dealing with traffic, parking blocks away from the apartment and finally settling in I wanted to get something to eat without wandering all over. Luckily this place was just a short walk away and I was not disappointed. It was busy but I only waited a few minutes to... More

My wife and I liked this place. Its way less pretentious than Parc with good omelettes. The Casual American food is actually grown from the restaurants own urban farm. I would eat here again if I ever come back to Philly.

Enjoyed their classic meat loaf, something not found on too many menus these days. The noise level was very intrusive, probably because the tables are so close together.

Good big attractive food. Great variety. Even the coffee was good, and I don't say that often. Maybe a tad pricey.

I came here with a friend, who wanted to sit at a table outside. When the wind picked up, we decided to retreat into the dining room, which was so open, that it was almost as though we were still outdoors. I was afraid that it would be crowded and noisy inside and we would not be able to talk.... More

I came here for lunch by myself between business meetings in center city. There were many healthy, vegetable-centric options and the staff was happy to provide suggestions as well as accommodate substitutions. My meal was delicious and paced well for me to get back to work.

I ordered only an appetizer: the Moroccan meatballs with cous-cous. It was so plentiful I couldn't even finish it! My friends orderes were also excellent- calamari and a hamburger- cooked to perfection and HUGE! Also had excellent service! I would go back again.

The salads here are delicious and light especially with grilled chicken and the smoothies taste like milkshakes. The menu is huge and has something for everyone - salads, sandwiches, pasta, breakfast foods. Service is great and very quick. This place gets very busy at lunch time so get here a little before noon.

Best seating is in summer at the outside tables. They also have cocktail hour events for all the 'worker bees' around this area. The menu at all the Marathon's is the same, in addition to, the daily specials. Staff has always been friendly and accommodating. We got a Marathon burger and a turkey burger. Both hearty and tasty. Food has... More

We ate dinner here on a recommendation from the hotel clerk at club quarters. We were not disappointed. The service was good and the food delicious. We had a nice window seat.
