We left early to ride an hour to this place. We were definitely not disappointed. The food was amazing and plentiful. Service was great. Wife even bought some earrings here too. Great down home feel.

Great food,good service, friendly people! What more needs to be said. Live near by and had been wanting to stop in for some time,glad finally made it. Should be called "Home of The Best Fried Bologna Sandwich". I have tried other items both breakfast and lunch all good. Home made deserts and bread hard to beat.

Been going to Marcy Jo's several years. Always for the plate lunches, which is usually a meat and 2 or 3 sides special. Haven't been for breakfast but a friend brought us a pan of Marcy Jo's cinnamon buns and they were heaven. Their homemade cakes are beyond wonderful. This isn't fancy - its a back-up-in-the-woods little hole in the... More

This is our second visit. We got there at peak time and the place was crowded. We wound up table-sharing with a local family. Definitely a place of luck cal character, what sets Marcy Jo's apart is the freshly baked breads, even their hamburger buns. Wish we'd picked a less popular time where we could've spoke to Marcy. She was... More

The place is cute as can be. It an old country shack with cute decor. I am local and have taken family visiting from out of town here on a few occasions, just because it's not the same ole same ole chain restaurant.... hoping that it would be a great place. The servers are not friendly most of the time.... More

I have eaten here many times. I am a local. The food is good. It's crowded, cluttered and the floor is uneven. Which is ok I guess. But my husband refuses to go here because the overwhelming smell of cat urine. The staff has actually gotten nicer over the years. But with Joey's passing it's kind of depressing there now.

Have always wanted to go here based on being a Joey+Rory fan and was not disappointed. If I wouldn't have known about this place, it would be a drive by but so glad we stopped. The food was incredible, rich hospitality and priceworthy. Home spun, fun. Will be a return customer!!!
