Fast, friendly service and great tasting food that is hot. I believe we got our food in under 2 minutes. I would definitely recommend anyone travelling through Marathon to eat at A&W.

Always enjoy their burgers and the prices are great for family dining as there is usually one burger or another on sale. Coffee is great too.

I wish I had researched Marathon before I made the mistake of pulling off the highway to visit this miserable place. What a terrible waste of valuable time. To say the least, the food was poorly prepared, which is a sad statement considering that we ordered chicken strips and fries -- kind of hard to mess that up. Undercooked food... More

Good place to go if youre packed up...you wont be for long with the grease that seems to ooze from everything except the lettuce-which was brown and wilted. for the most part staff was friendly, order was slow though. Everything is grossly overpriced.

Love A&W period, but the one in Marathon is closer to me than most others. Their restaurant is clean, well kept, and the food is always awesome. Try a frosted glass cup root beer when you go, it's great!

We haven't been to an A&W in many years. There are not many dinning places in Marathon to choose from. We decided just to get something quick and easy after a day of driving from Thunder Bay to Marathon. There was a special offering 2 Papa Burgers for $7. Instead I ordered a Mama Burger and my wife had the... More

Same as any other A&W. Beware of their hours though - they close at 8, so if you roll into town late, you might miss your chance for a tasty A&W burger.
