This location us now closed. Food was okay when opened. They offered live music and different events each night. Sorry to see this close. Hopefully they will reopen in the future

Never a time I've ate here and left disappointed. Friendly staff that makes you feel at home every time you come thru the door.

I visited this quaint restaurant while traveling on business and fell in love. Let's start with the food... true Southern delicacies from the piping hot mac and cheese to the yummy candied yams. We had a table full of "homemade" dishes that impressed us all. Grilled fish, cabbage, liver and onions, and (I cant remember what else everyone had). All... More

We stopped by on a Sun afternoon not realizing they did a buffet on Sundays, so we decided to go ahead ad give it a try. Very small buffet, good service, but low food turnover, lower quality, all would have been OK if it were cheap. But it wasn't. And the cobbler was just awful. We won't be back.

Mary Helen's closed for a brief period, but the community showed them just how much they'd be missed, so they reopened. I'm so glad they did, because when my brother and sister in law came down from Brooklyn looking for some "good Southern food," I knew exactly where to take them! They didn't disappoint...the cornbread tasted like cake, the fried... More

Stopped in here during the Hampton Blackbeard Festival. Great service, reasonable pricing. Kind of noisy.
