    If you're a vegetarian/pescatarian, in addition to the vegetable platter, their fish options are pretty varied and tasty. The blackened tilapia was as good as it gets, especially with some hot sauce!

    Wine sauce for the bread pudding is a little strong but the Mac n' Cheese was delicious and the greens were to die for!! Roast pork was very tender minus a few cart shards....get you an Arnold Palmer!

    Definitely try the Turkey and dressing and the complimentary cinnamon and yeast rolls are amazing! The mac and cheese could use some work but overall a great meal!👌

    First timers get your free potlikker and corn bread! Portions were massive here and extremely buttery. The wait staff was very nice. Get an assorted bread basket!

    Serving up delicious Southern food since 1945. 1st time visitors be sure to ask for a complimentary pot likker! While there take a look at the photos lining the walls of famous folks who have visited.

    Had really high expectations from the hype, but honestly I don't think I'd go back. The fried okra and green tomatoes were delicious, as well as the cinnamon rolls but everything else was just okay

    Food's pretty good. Some items are hit & miss tho. Fried chicken, sweet potato soufflé, broccoli casserole, oysters & greens are good money. Bread & cinnamon rolls are delicious 2. Good service too

    Lots of dining rooms makes this feel like people kept coming for the traditional southern food, so the restaurant kept adding rooms. When you go to the restroom, remember what room you came from.

    Service is wonderful and food is pretty darn good. Fried chicken is all you want with fried chicken. And the biscuits are pretty good, too. Tight waiting area and a considerable wait.

    I'm sure it's because we had a big party, but the fried chix, green beans, grits and stuffing were all just OK. Didn't try the fried green tomatoes because they never made it to the table. Too bad.

    I got fried chicken, sweet potatoes, greens, & Mac n cheese. Everything was good (especially the sweet potatoes) but the Mac n cheese. Tasted bland to me. The banana pudding was hot also.

    What you get when you go: a friendly hello at the door, a sheet that you scribble your order on, a complimentary cup of collard green pot likker, and an array of Southern classics. Read more

    The potlikker — salty, oily and cloudy with mysteries of flavor, with a stray collard leaf floating within — comes alongside a miniature cracklincorn muffin. Read more

    Everything was amazing! The service, the food... We went on New Year's Day so the menu was limited and they were super busy. We were told one hour wait but waited only half.

    Yummy selection of Southern food. For vegetarians, you can always order the Vegetable Platter which allows you to choose from a variety of sides like mac and cheese and okra!

    When I crave for fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, and the freshest creamed corn, this is the place! Granny hostess never fails to entertain and gives the warmest back rub.

    Friendly service with a private parking lot. The fried green tomatoes are really good especially with the spicy dipping sauce.

    Mary Mac’s is known for such Dixie classics as Brunswick stew, pot likker with a cornbread muffin, and chicken with dressing. Macaroni and cheese is not to be missed.

    Everything is wonderful here! My personal favorites are the fried green tomatoes and black eyed peas. Best place in Atlanta to get true Southern home cooking.

    Marlan is the best waiter of all times. Quick, personable, and super sweet! Sit in his section when you come. You may even get hooked up with some cinnamon rolls.

    Yeah, not so sure about this place. The food was ok but not amazing. I like the collard greens and creamed corn but the fried chicken was not crispy and the mint julep was weak.

    One of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. I always bring visiting family and friends here. Cream corn and broccoli soufflé are hands down the best!

    The fried green tomatoes are fantastic. The fried chicken was the best I had in years. Get some sweet tea and you're good to go. Super friendly service

    First time visitors get a free pot likker. Eat fried chicken, mac & cheese, fried okra, green beans, etc. The cinnamon rolls are SO good too.

    Food was better than the last time I was there (still don't care for the cheese on macaroni but great friendly service

    Everything is already pre-cooked and not fresh. The clientelé is blah and servers are GHETTTO. There have also been food poisoning from the seafood dishes. Beware. The mudbugs are good tho.

    Every item I had was delicious. I would highly recommend Mary Mac's, it's arguably one of the best southern cuisine restaurants I've been to.

    It doesn’t get any better than Mary Mac's. With the perfect touch of Southern charm, this traditional menu will certainly make an impression. Try the Spicy Deep-Fried “Mudbugs” while you’re here.

    Note to first time visitors: be sure to ask for a complimentary pot likker! Don't know exactly what that is? You'll just have to wait and find out!

    Lots of history here; however, the food can be hit or miss sometimes. Our waiter John was great though! He handled our group of 25 like a champ!

    Fried green tomatoes are the best I've ever had. The broccoli soufflé was better than expected - a must if you like broccoli.

    Don't be afraid to ask if you can sample a dish. I got to sample the chicken & dumplings and it was excellent! A hearty dish indeed.
