Marathon Grill is a popular neighborhood and Center City foodie restaurant in Philadelphia, PA. With two locations on Spruce and Sansom Street, they have decades of delivering high quality food to their customers. Their restaurants have an awesome selection of lunch, dinner and bar options to choose from. Diners can see the busy kitchen and counter staff during lunch, brunch and dinner. I have had the opportunity to see a ton of restaurant kitchen and staff work during a rush. Marathon Grill’s staff has to be one of the hardest working ones when it comes to delivery a quality dining experience.

Marathon Grill & Phoodie Media
Marathon Grill has been a Phoodie Media customer since 2021. Jon, the owner, and his team needed help to consistently promote their restaurant on social media while COVID was still affecting restaurants in Philadelphia. It has been a great experience to work with Jon and his diligent managers, Vickie and Debbie, to capture and post what makes Marathon Grill a go-to spot in Center City Philadelphia.
Success Growing Social Media Accounts
