  • I hate to admit it but....Mary Mac's Tea Room ain't what it used to be. It is disappointing. The vegetables are just so-so and overall the food quality is about what one would expect from a wildly popular tourist destination. I have tried the food several times and sadly, it reminds me of another venerable but long gone Atlanta institution- Miss Pitty Patts Porch which was also a disappointment (foodwise). The atmosphere and history though are very nice and one should make the trip once.

  • Order: various southern style vegetables

  • i forgot everything i ordered exactly, but the fried oysters were the best i've ever had! the nice waitress told me to try the sweet tea. i said i was not sure if i would like it, but she promised if i did not, i could have the coke i originally wanted to order. i did not like the sweet tea, but the food was delicious! and true to her word, the waitperson took my sweet tea away and gave me a coke. i just wish i had gone to this restaurant at the beginning of my trip instead of the end!

  • Order: fried oysters and some other sides...

  • My husband's from Atlanta and Mary Mac's is a long time family favorite. It's unique in that there are pads of paper and pencils at the table, you write down your order and it's served family style. It was great with our kids and grandkids as everyone could get the amount they wanted with a chance for seconds! Truly great old time Southern cooking. Only problem we had was choosing from the long menu.

  • Order: Fried Chicken, Greens, Mac & Cheese, Peach cobbler

  • Mary Mac's Tea Room is as southern as sweet tea, fried green tomates,a and sweet potato pie. Of course, they serve all thes treats and some wonderful sounther fried chicken also. Te waitress comes to pick up your order, which you write down yourself from the menu. In a flash, the order appears at your table alone with the typical sounthern greet, "Hope you enjoy it, Hun." There is always a waiting line but it is always wortht the wait. They keep the sweet tea coming. That's what makes Mary Mac's Tea Room one of my favorites. Good comfort food, pleasant surrouindings and great service. All you can ask for.

  • Order: Fried chicken turnips sweet potatoes (yams) country style corn corn bread cobbler (apple) Sweet tea
