I had company in town and decided to take them to Mary Macs Tea Room on a Sunday, the wait time was reasonable 20 minutes for a party of 4. When the waiter arrived we informed him we had a 1 hour time frame because we needed to head to the airport. He said that was plenty of time. We... More

We asked our host to take us somewhere to try typical Southern food. Southern fried chicken, cornbread and pot likker, collard greens. Certainly got what we'd asked for. An extensive queue to get in, but maybe 6pm was peak hour and it didn't look too bad on our way out. To say the food was plentiful is an understatement! Serves... More

When you want good ole southern food like grandma used to make -- this is the place to go. The cinnamon rolls which are complimentary are wonderful. Their sweet tea "wine of the south" as they call it is great. The sweet potato soufflé is my favorite and usually more like a desert as it is very sweet. Chicken fried... More

A friend recommended this establishment and I am sure glad they did! Deemed Atlanta's dining room by the Georgia House of Representatives, this restaurant is a must visit on your next trip to Atlanta. The wait staff was extremely friendly and suggested that as first time visitors to the restaurant we should try the "Southern Special." This meal is served... More

I travel through Atlanta less frequently now, but always looks forward to lunch at Mary Mac's. But $11.95 for a vegetable plate and $2.95 for sweet tea is a bit over the top.

In our short week vacation in Atlanta, we were able to go to this restaurant twice (the only repeated one). Food and service were great. Our waitress was very nice and polite. The southern cooking really hit the spot for me! Highly recommend it!

One MUST listen to the history of this place before tasting its delicious food. The waiters are steeped in tradition and anecdotes which makes this place as much an entertainment venue as a culinary destination. The food is excellent too, with southern flavors popping in the mouth and, of course, finishing with melting one's tongue in sugar and spices (I... More

I honestly didn't like it too much. the fried green tomatoes were definitely good and the cinnamon rolls. thats about all that was good. everything else was average. collard greens were extremely bitter, sweet potato souffle was nauseatingly sweet (and I have a sweet tooth) and the chicken taste was okay. it was just nice and crisp, that's about it....
