We ended up eating upstairs and outside on the balcony with a wonderful view of Falls Park. We decided to do luncie items and all were delicious. They do breakfast as well. It is a small and intimate place with a limited sized kitchen so they are careful not to seat more than they can handle at a given time. Very friendly staff, great food and views. cute house and neat outdoor seating. I think they can be quite creative as well. The Garden club helped restore the building and the grounds so it is very scenic. You might have a wait but very worth it. Put your name in and wander to the peace bridge. Don't go too far as they might call your name sooner. Cheers and enjoy!!!

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. I am so happy that you looked around and found out about the "Carolina Foothills Garden Club" and their contribution to the restoration of "Falls Cottage". Their efforts on behalf of Greenville's downtown revitalization is far reaching.

So glad that you enjoyed the food and service. Please coma again soon!

Warmest regards,
Mary

We ate at Mary's in the garden. Beautiful day, so the restaurant was packed - probably more than normal with all the evacuees because of Hurricane Matther - so the service was a little slow, but the food was worth the wait. I had a ho-hum garden salad with a side of the best potato salad I've ever eaten. Jack ordered a chibatta which was delicious, accompanied by a fantastic broccoli salad. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely return! The outdoor seats are metal with no cushions, which made the wait for food - and check - a little uncomfortable,

We ate brunch here on a SUN - they do not take reservations on SAT or SUN, but the wait was worth it. I had the shrimp and grits, wife had the Low Country Benedict and a side a bacon. The food was very good. We have been wanting to try this place for years - will be back.

Hello,

Thanks for having brunch at Mary's. I appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice review. Just a little side note, My husband was traveling in Georgetown some 25 years ago and he had dinner at a small little place there. He ordered shrimp and grits and they were fantastic. At the end of the evening he ask the chef if he would share the recipe, and he did. So, that's the recipe we use today. Glad you enjoyed it!

Come again soon!
Mary
