We had a large group (100+) use their private meeting space. As we were walking through the restaurant we saw families, couples, small & large groups. Very vibrant atmosphere. The staff was amazing & efficient. The food was outstanding!

We have been to Mary Mac’s several times over the years and the menu is very consistent. The food is very good and the service is fast and friendly. The only downfall is that the parking lot fills up quickly.
