    Good Surprise

    After living in Atlanta for so many years, my family & I finally went to Mary Macs to celebrate a birthday, praying that we wouldn't be disappointed. We weren't! We wanted Southern cuisine & it was very tasty & for the most part a good value for the money. Our server, Damien, was very knowledgeable & helpful with all of our questions. The bread basket trio was great. The sides were smaller than I would have wanted such as only 2 slices of fried green tomatoes for a serving. There were very good though.

    I had avoided this place because I thought it would be stuff and pretentious...as it turned out it was just good southern food in an old building. Nothing fancy. They have pictures of all the people who have been there over the years from James Brown to the Dalai Lama. That tells you something...people from every walk of life were there the day we were. The food is a bit expensive, but I loved it. All four in my party orderd the smothered steak...giant portions of tender steak cooked in a thick gravy, very tender. I got the green beans and the cream corn....just like your grandmother's...if your grandmother was a southern cook.The fried tomatoes were good and crispy (not how we fry them, but no fake gourmet southern sauce either) The mac and chesse was fluffy, the greens were just right. The potato cakes were not great, but you never see them in a restaurant anymore, so I was pleased to see them. The only thing I did not think up to parr..the oakra. Really I think it was frozen. Note to self, avoid the oakra. Other than that I loved it!! Real southern food...yum!

    Gone are the Golden Days...

    My husband says Mary Mac's just isn't what it used to be and although this was my first time at the tea room, I'd wager he's probably right. The eats were average at best. Flavorless collard greens (how is that even possible?), nasty coagulated mac & cheese full of chunky egg whites, and the greasiest broccoli souffle I've ever seen in my life. The whole fried catfish were up to snuff, as were the chicken and dumplings. So it wasn't entirely awful, just disappointing overall. A southern restaurant as seasoned as Mary Mac's has no excuse for serving less-than-stellar classic sides like the ones mentioned above. I can't speak for what Mary Mac's used to be like, but it must have been better than it is now at some point. Gone are the days when you can see a line of people wrapped around the building as you drive up Ponce. This place needs a revival and better air conditioning to boot.

    Excellent food, pretty quick seating even during lunch, good service, fair prices. The parking can be difficult and you will probably be accosted by hobos between your car and the front door. If you have to pick one Atlanta restaurant to represent Southern Cuisine, pick this one.

    An eternal slice of the South

    My favorite part about Mary Mac's is the fact that they call their sweet tea "table wine." Ahh yes, that's how I know I'm in the South! The meat and veggies are wonderful, and I love the items like pot likker you don't see much of anywhere else. The room itself has so much history too, it's like a shrine of past meals and conversations shared.

    A long-time Atlanta favorite. The food and service are good. It is close to the downtown area so there are many interesting places near.

    Truly an Atlanta instution and a Southern experience. The quality of the food is good and features many Deep South staples. The fried chicken, greens, okra and corn bread are as good as any you are likely to find anywhere. Definitely a favorite in the "meat and two sides" category.

    Mary Mac's Tearoom is an Atlanta Staple. If you are looking to host a small tea or something of the like this is the place.

    Mary Mac's Tea Room is your Mom's home ccooking, if you are a Southerner: grits, Hoppin' John, smothered pork chops, hog maws and more! Serious sweet tea.

    We went there quite often for lunch until our van got smashed into in broad daylight in the parking lot behind the restaurant. They broke the window and stole a dvd player. Food was great but afraid to park there again.

    I don't want to give Mary Macs a bad review for their food because it is delicious; however, be CAREFUL where you park. LOTS of break-ins in their lot... I won't go back.

    Which is better - fried chicken or cinnamon rolls
    JayEasy (163 reviews)
    5/15/2008

    It's hard to compare the two so I'd have to say the fried chicken and cinnamon rolls are the best for their type of food. The sweet tea is pretty good too.
