We've been here for lunch a couple times. My wife is a vegetarian and we're always on the lookout for a restaurant that serves good vegetable dishes. Unfortunately, many put ham or bacon in them...they're no longer vegetarian! Mary's has a great (>15) selection of real vegetable dishes, all very tasty. I've had the open faced roast beef and the...

We were in young Harris for the weekend and it was suggested we have breakfast at Mary's. We missed breakfast and ended up having lunch, which was delicious! Good, home style food, seasoned perfectly. We loved it so much we ended up coming back the next morning for breakfast which was just as good! We met Mary herself on both... More

We ate here all three days we were in the area. This is where all the locals go and everything we tried there was excellent. Good breakfast and vegetables served with a smile. Food is quality, place is clean, friendly staff,and prices are reasonable. What more can you as for? Highly recommend!

A local favorite, everything is good. Daily specials and try the Parmesan potato skins, excellent. I eat there at least once a week.

I was looking for a good breakfast but found a great one. Sat at the counter and enjoyed the best morning eats with local supplied bacon seasoned and smoked perfectly, and grite the way they are meant. I highly recommend you visit.

We stopped in here while traveling through the area. We had not had great experiences for breakfasts in the Helen Georgia area, so wanted a good southern breakfast. We came to the right place here. This is just a small town southern diner, with friendly staff, and great food. This was the best breakfast that we had on our trip.... More

We have visited Mary's Southern Grill a few times when we are in the area. We have even taken guests to Mary's for breakfast. We have always enjoyed the good food, fair prices and usually hospitable atmosphere. Unfortunately, our last visit was disappointing, upsetting and embarrassing. I think one of the servers was having a very bad day. When we... More

We arrived for breakfast about 10 am., and had a 10 minute wait. BTW, the kitchen closes for breakfast at 11 am. I ordered eggs, bacon, old fashioned potatoes, toast and a side biscuit. Others ordered chicken fried steak, biscuit and gravy. The food is southern style like we are. I wish they had a jelly that wasn't institutionally packaged.... More

A Mom and Pop type restaurant with reasonable prices and good food. Nothing fancy, just regular fare served in a timely fashion by friendly servers. Try the Parmesan potato wedges!
