This quaint restaurant is a true gem! You will enjoy your home cooking meal in an atmosphere of being at your grandmother's table. My friend and I had the most delicious and tender roast beef with mashed potatoes. Desserts are fabulous! Marcy is a warm and welcoming hostess in her home away from home.

We are big Joey & Rory fans so this was on our must see list. Marcy was nice. There was a steady flow of people for Friday lunch. I had the catfish, it was a little thicker than I prefer, but it was cooked well and tasted wonderful. My daddy (the picky eater) had the meatloaf and said it was... More

Don't judge the quality of the food by the outside appearance! Everything we tried was excellent. The Cinnamon Rolls are a must!!! It is only open limited hours but it is a must for a good ole county breakfast!!

LOVE this quant little place. It's old, small and the floors are uneven and creek! But the service and food are top notch! They have a gift shop upstairs that sells shirts, jewelry,Joey and Rory music. We had biscuits and gravy, pork tenderloin sandwich, omelet and chicken salad sandwich. They were all great! The omelet had more toppings inside than... More

We have been wanting to visit ever since we heard about it from Joey + Rory's Can You Duet submission video. It was a special treat to actually meet Marcy. Wish we could of met Rory & little Indy but wasn't... More

Marcy Jo's is a fun place to visit out in the country. We have been here twice. It is a quaint vintage experience in a very old building. The food is very good. The issue I have is that everything is to excess. The cinnamon rolls are outstanding, but under a massive, really unreasonable, amount of icing. If there is... More

My Wife and I have eaten there 4 times in the travel to my mother in-laws, we met Joey, Rory, Marcy, Hope and Larry Black. The food is as good as my Grandmother made for me as a boy. Marcy has got to be the sweetest Red Head country girl I have ever met, we now leave home for Mississippi... More

Excellent food. Down home cooking. Friendly service. The stuffed French Toast on Saturdays is fantastic. They have incredible baked goods, the best carrot cake I've ever had. You've just got to love a place that asks if you want a cinnamon roll as an appetizer! Or if you want your bacon crispy!! Reasonable prices, great cozy atmosphere. Expect a wait... More
