Really good food. Very crowded but we still got in for breakfast. Our server was very attentive. No one was wearing masks, including servers, if you are concerned about that.

I love Mary’s food and the great service. However, I was surprised and concerned that no masks were worn nor was there any social distancing. I felt very uncomfortable with this, so will reluctantly stay away until, if and when, Covid 19 is under control.

The food was very good. My wife and son had pancakes and I had eggs, sausage, and biscuit and gravy. Everything was quite good and we would go back. Be aware they do not take cards, so bring cash.

All seven of us agreed, Mary's Southern Grill served up great food in hefty portions with kind, speedy service. Hometown, local fare at its best! The fried potatoe skins are sooo good!

Good breakfasts—we had an omega and breakfast plate. Not outstanding. Not a mask to be seen on any of the staff—not social distancing

Great local dining. We had breakfast here before a hike and it was delicious. Omelettes and grits are great.

They do not sell breakfast all day and it’s cash only...... I had the mountain trout, tomato and cucumber side, as well as mac n cheese. Trout was not great....... my son had cheeseburger... the fries were good. I would go back to try the...breakfast, never for lunch/dinner.More

Huge menu of traditional American food. Great prices. Excellent food. Terrific servers. Been there many many times and never once disappointed. Wait isn't too long, even if there is a line. Gotta have the peach cobbler with a spoonful of ice cream on top.

They have it from time to time. The menu specials change daily so you may want to call ahead to make sure it is available. They are very accommodating.
