This past Saturday, a couple of friends and I made our way to Mary Mac's Tea Room for lunch. This place has been our list to try for some time now. They have been in business since 1945 and are known for their southern food. Check out what we ordered and my experience below.
Mary Mac's is divided into several rooms. We were seated in the Maple (?) Room. I was filled with framed photos of past elite guests and newspaper and magazine articles on the establishment.
I ordered the patty melt made with swiss cheese and grilled onions. I ordered a side of fries and mac and cheese. Delish! I only ate half because I was full by the time our food came.
Orders are placed using a paper order form and green pencil donning the restaurant's name.
One of my friends ordered the fried chicken with a side of fried okra, mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes. She, like I, could not finish and took the majority of it home.
Lastly, my other friend ordered baked chicken on a bed of dressing, with sweet potato souffle topped with marshmallows, mac and cheese, and coleslaw as side.
Oh, and that break basket I keep mentioning came with an assortment of cinnamon rolls, corn muffins, and dinner rolls.

Winter decided to come with the new year, so I threw on some layers, save for legs to get my grub on.

Service: Good. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu. We did wait longer than we would have liked (45 minutes?) for our food. However, we did go on a Saturday at lunch time. When our food did arrive, it was piping hot and our orders were correct.
Price: $$- My meal was less than twenty dollars, but some dishes cost more than that.
Would I Recommend to a Friend: Yes, and I just might tag along with them!
