“fun restaurant”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

The food is very good here. The staff are up beat ,helpful, , friendly, and accomodating. We had a clam appetizer which was very small. We also had fried clam and oyster appetizer which was also very small. The lobster rolls had a lot of large pieces of lobster which were very good. The prices are high. This is not a fancy decor restaurant. The restaurant opens at 6 PM. People line up outside starting at 5 to 5:30. If I were to spend that amount on a restaurant I would find one with reservations and more elegant decor..

“Good dinner in a hurry”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

I have eaten here several times and always enjoyed the food. The seafood always appears to be fresh. Less positively, they are always in a hurt to get you out. I would guess they are successful at turning the seats/tables 3x per night most nights.

“Nice for lunch in mid-afternoon”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Tight quarters, really small, but homey place. Friendly, accommodating staff with retro music, roadhouse atmosphere. Fresh seafood, on the expensive side, not overly large portions, but quite tasty & well prepared. The fried green tomatoes with buttermilk dressing special was good, but needed more than just 2 slices per order. Tried the mahi-mahi grilled fish tacos; a different spin this dish, served with a corn salad which was delicious. Everything is cooked to order & in view with an open kitchen. Lunch in the mid-afternoon is less crowded & relaxing. Suggestion: try 2 smaller dishes instead of an entree, as this place is more about the tasting experience than bulk.

“Loved It!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Loved this place. We had a fantastic and memorable lunch. We started with a bottle of Spanish cava and a large plate of oysters. We then had the fried green tomatoes and the watermelon salad - fantastic combination. We then shared the lobster roll and shoestring fries. All good. To top things off the strawberry shortcake and the hot fudge peanut brittle sundae were amazing. Thanks for making everything fresh and delicious. Nothing like homemade whipped cream.

“the lobster rolls rock”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

While I enjoy reading the menu and acknowledge the vast array of delicious seafood options available here, I inevitably order the lobster roll. They are crazy delicious. Sitting at the wooden tables munching on the calamari appetizer, you can almost pretend you are at the beach. Mary's does a pretty good job of creating the atmosphere of a sea food shack in the heart of the West Village.
