We had it served buffet style. Everyone raved about the food, which was plentiful and ,ore importantly delicious. The service was great too. We really appreciated the staff letting... More

Our server was so kind and helpful since it was only our first time here. We ended up with the roast turkey squash and sweet potato soufflé, and the pot roast with broccoli soufflé and collards. Overall, it was good. I've had better southern food before but overall it was a 4 out of 5 stars.

Great southern food and service was excellent. You fill out your own order sheet as to what you want to eat. So, if your order comes out wrong, it's on you. Great atmosphere also. All the workers are very gracious

The ole grey mare ain't what she used to be. This used to be one of my favorites in Atlanta for three decades. No more. I will not return. My daughter got sick again, and her boyfriend didn't come for fear of the same. The bread was not good. Neither was the Brunswick stew or the chicken pot pie. The... More

Nice mother and daughter or Best friends get together place. Of course men are welcome but it's kinda that old English world charm that makes you want to site there and order tea and crumpets. Just kidding, good soul food and desserts.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Mary Mac's during a recent trip to Atlanta. It's a real throwback to old school service. Our waitress was amazing. Interesting to chat with and made us feel like real guests. We enjoyed the vegetable soup, fried chicken, and greens. The chicken was just perfect. Could tell it wasn't my... More

Mary Mac's is the epitome of southern hospitality. The long wait is worth it once you taste their cornbread and pot liquor. Their menu offers everything a northerner must dream of. Great place to bring friends and family looking for meals they always hear about.

Have heard a lot about Mary Mac's and was excited to eat dinner there. Good ole southern cooking! Not only was the food classic and good, but the photographs throughout the restaurant were a time travel for this Georgia native! The ordering process was quite unique. As this is located in the heart of Atlanta, it was nice for Mary... More

A southern heirloom that has amazing southern recipes that delight your taste buds. Parking in rear lot can be challenging during rush hours. Serving lunch and dinner, reasonable prices for families, couples, singles. Amazing collections from celebrities that have visited. Seating table and chairs. No scenic views. Cinnamon and yeast rolls are great. Southern vege plate, chicken dumplings, seafood, ribs,... More
