A southern heirloom that has amazing southern recipes that delight your taste buds. Parking in rear lot can be challenging during rush hours. Serving lunch and dinner, reasonable prices for families, couples, singles. Amazing collections from celebrities that have visited. Seating table and chairs. No scenic views. Cinnamon and yeast rolls are great. Southern vege plate, chicken dumplings, seafood, ribs,... More

After the several times I have been to Mary Macs I have yet to find anything on the menu that wasn't at least an 8 out of 10. This particular trip to the restaurant was for a pickup for Thanksgiving dinner to-go. Everything was like my momma made it herself. You must stop here if you in town for the... More

We held our rehearsal dinner at one of the legendary Atlanta restaurants. This wonderful establishment has had Presidents, Politians and Celebrities eat here. Did you hear about their service? No one can do it better. The food is so delicious. Everyone in attendance couldn't believe how great it was. I highly recommend anyone visiting Atlanta make an effort to eat... More

This place is great- a true Atlanta institution. Everyone I met said to go there. Is the food outstanding- no, but it is great, freshly cooked, local fayre and service is with a smile. You have to be willing to wait for a while for a table- we waited around 30 minutes on a weekend, and that was later in... More

This was my first visit to Mary Macs. We were in Atlanta for the New Year's weekend and our friends suggested Mary Macs for dinner. The wait was only about 5 minutes for a busy weekend (New Year's and the Peach Bowl) so we were pleased about that. However, our pleasure pretty much ended there. We were sat in the... More

Really enjoy Mary Mac's Tea room, only complain I have would be parking. They had police office outside building direction cars to park on side of the road in neighborhoods since parking space was full. Overall experience was great food was good and great service!!!

I really wanted to try proper Southern food while I was in Atlanta, and Mary Mac's certainly did not disappoint! From the cornbread in the basket to the fried green tomatoes, to the delicious fried chicken, to the collared greens... Everything was delicious and authentic. There's a reason why it's an Atlanta tradition!

Mary Mac's only takes reservations for groups of 8 or more. There is a parking lot behind the restaurant. We ordered smothered chicken,shrimp and grits (not as good as Flying Biscuit), veggie plate (4 sides), peach cobbler with ice cream. Everything was delicious especially the complimentary breads (cinnamon, butter, corn breads) and broccoli souffle. However the food is not as... More

I come to Mary Mac's Tea Room every time I visit ATL. This is my 5-6 time here. This last time was very disappointing. The wait wasn't long at all which is good. Once seated, it took about 10-15 mins for a waiter to come even though it wasn't packed. We ordered a round of drinks and one of my... More
