I meet friends here for lunch occasionally. The staff is always cheerful and professional with lots of friendly for that extra touch. Nothing is fancy, just a great place to eat! I recommend you give them a try. You will return.

We had heard great things about this place. The food was good, but not over the top. Please take cash as they do no accept plastic.

Mary has a great family restaurant. The specials are always reliably good-with several "all you can eat" meals for hearty eaters. Friday night catfish and Thursday lunch chicken & dumplings are fantastic. Veggies may not always be from scratch, but seasoned to taste like they are. Soups and salads are good, desserts terrific. Service is always quick, with a "honey",... More

Stopped in here the morning after a Dwight Yoakam concert in Hiawassee. Best bacon ever. Thick, perfectly cooked...so many breakfast spots have sub-par bacon. They also have four different kinds of potatoes...hash browns, home fries, potato cakes and old fashioned style (with green peppers and onions cooked on the grill). Go for the gusto and get the Old Fashioned! You... More

We decided to try an alternative to our "walking distance" standard Ga Mountain for breakfast as we felt their quality has taken a hit. We found Mary's online and it was listed as Young Harris but it's really on outskirts of Hiawassee in strip mall. We were very happy with the service and food and have found a new spot!

Research places for lunch and this local place was great. I am all about meat with 2 vegetables or vegetable plates. I went with 4 vegetables. They were great especially the squash casserole. Also, have a home made dessert. Your on vacation.

We ate here for the first time with my SIL and her BF. Had breakfast Sunday morning and it was great! Good service, fun wait staff. Just good down home people! Mary came around to all the tables to see her usual customers and meet the new ones. Very nice! Will definitely be back!!!

Go where the locals go if you want some tasty Southern vittles. Enjoyed a four veg lunch here with a homemade yeast roll that included jalapeno slaw, fried okra, creamed corn, and something else tasty I can't recall. Long list of sides that can easily make up a meal. Closes at 2 p.m.

If you are looking for good southern food, this is the place. Sawmill sausage gravy and fluffy biscuits with 2 eggs cooked your way and coffee was the special last Friday. It was really good. My husband ordered the pancakes with eggs and sausage. The pancakes were huge. Hope to return next time we are in the area.
