.......his is a great place with impressive number of breakfast options. Since it is not a cuisine I know, I cannot comment on its quality.

We had breakfast again at Mary's this morning. We have been going to Mary's for years and failed to do a Trip Advisor Review. By far it is the best in the area....no ifs or buts. The waitress staff is great, food excellent, large portions, restaurant clean and all supervised closely by Mary the owner. Don't waste your time going... More

An extended stay on Lake Chatuge in August gave us several opportunities to visit and enjoy Mary's Southern Grill. We experienced only breakfast. Killer biscuits! The food was top notch, the service friendly and fun, and the overall value was terrific. We arrived with a family group of 7 adults, 1 infant, on a busy Sunday morning and were promptly... More

Friends recommended this place. My experience, if you like dry, overcooked and tasteless food then it's for you. Priced as if it was perfect. I wanted to send my order back, but I was with someone that was raving about the place, while she ate. My Quiche tasted like they forgot to put in the eggs! Server was friendly, but... More

The food is clearly homemade from scratch and very fresh. Because they are typically busy, it does take a bit to get your food. So, be prepared to wait if they are crowded. Their cheese and bacon omelet was very yummy! I also enjoyed their French toast and would recommend their chocolate milk as they make it to order.

Mary's is one of those restaurants that you can't get enough of. They serve some of the best comfort food around. They have the best blueberry pancakes I have had in Ga. Whether you go for breakfast or lunch it's always good. The staff is very friendly and your food arrives hot and fast. I highly recommend trying out if... More

We were on a weekend visit to Hiawassee and had enjoyed Mary's 2 weeks ago and decided to go back again. I am glad we did, it was good food again. Only negative is, they are not open on Sunday, so we had to find another place to eat.

Can't say enough about Mary and her "Girls" The great food was actually secondary to the great time we had . Six of us were up from Florida to attend the Moonshine Car Cruiz and the" Give and Take" with Mary and her Staff made our day. If/when we return, Mary's Place will be one of our first stops.

Mary's provides an authentic southern experience nestled among the beautiful Appalachian mountains. The owner and servers were quite friendly, some of the locals were there, creating a warm environment. I had the crispy chicken tenders and was not disappointed, they were battered to perfection and were good enough to eat without any sauce. My only negative which is understandable given... More
