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.

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.

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!

We love Mary's. Feels like home and the food is great. Mostly country cooking. Great biscuits too. They usually are only open for breakfast and lunch but check to see if they are open for dinner closer to the weekend.

Good food, happy staff, good service. We went there last Friday with eight of us. We were accommodated with large table and got a wide variety of foods, all cooked well and generous servings. Home cooking......will be back.....
