Atmosphere is dated and a bit smelly - but the food is fabulous...Run daily specials that are great. Do not order but one order of fries. Lines are long at lunch - go a little early.

Have been dining here for a number of years and have never been disappointed. Is a Greek influenced restaurant with the usual offerings as well as sandwiches and subs. The chicken kebobs are the Thursday special and is very tasty and filling. The spanikopita and pastitsio is very good. We come down to this area three times a year and ALWAYS go to Marathon each tirp. The decor leaves a lot to be desired and could really use a visit by Robert Irvine from Restaurant Impossible! You order at the counter, get your own drinks and given a number for the food to be brought to your table. For a good lunch, this is a good place. Despite all that, I will be back again.

Really nice Greek food at very reasonable prices. However, the place looks run down and the atmosphere is depressing. You order at the couter and the food is brought out when it is prpeared. You have to get your own drinks (like many chain reataurants). This place has the potential to be much moe upscale, but that would require some investment.

Marathon is a greek restaurant located close to downtown Greenville. I have had the non-vegetarian sampler multiple times and have never been disappointed with the food. The only bad thing about this place is the building and decorations are so outdated and run down. The set up is strange, and when you walk through the front door for the first time, you have to realize this is a order at the counter in the back and then sit wherever you choose kind of restaurant. There is no wait staff despite it's significant amount of seating. Also, the bar looks as though it hasn't been operating for at least 10 years. So if you want to great greek food that is set up kind of like a take-out restaurant, then by all means, this is the place for you!

I was greeted by dead plants and dirty carpets. My suggestion is to do some DEEP cleaning inside and out. However the food was great! I suggest putting the side salad in a bowl rather than on my dinner plate. Oh and one plant on the stump is sufficient.
