Ate here based on a recommendation from someone else we were traveling with. Walking around, other menu's and atmospheres looked more appealing but we went with it. Ordered a seafood plate, guac, quesadillas, tacos. Nothing at all to write home about and lunch was $100 with 2 rounds of beers. Guac was terrible, nothing was great and all else was... More

This is one of our favorite spots down town! They have awesome shrimp cocktails and good drinks at decent prices. You really can't beat the view, sitting right next to the ocean is just perfect.

We went for a pre-dinner walk and drinks on the Malecon. After visiting several of the curio shops and fishmongers, we ended up at Mary's for cocktails. Upstairs was very spacious and right on the water. Decor is nothing fancy (think plastic chairs and tables), but the view is great and the drinks were good and a fair price.

Mary's is an institution. After years and years of careful comparative eating, theirs is the best Mexican shrimp cocktail going. Cool service, great view, fun staff. We are there within 20 minutes of hitting town time after time and year after year.

Started out with an excellent margarita, and had a shrimp taco and the seafood soup in foil. Wow! Be sure to put plenty of fresh lime juice on the soup and it will sing! Same goes for the shrimp tacos. We also really enjoyed watching the pelicans dive bomb for their dinner. Great evening in Puerto Penasco!

Staff was friendly and helpful. We wanted to eat up on the upper covered deck. Ample sun shade is available. We chose to sit on the side with a view view of the ocean, which was lovely. The shrimp tacos were delicious. My husband and I both ordered 2 shrimp tacos and they proved to be a perfect luncheon serving.... More

I used to LOVE Mary's - it was a must-do stop on every trip. I am so sad to see that the food has taken a turn for the worse. It used to be a delightful hole in the wall, with GREAT food, and decent drinks. Now it seems all they want is your money, and the quality of the... More

I always take guests to Mary's for the Seafood Platter. This is as fresh as it gets. Outdoor, covered seating with an excellent view. Great for lunch or dinner.

We've been going to Mary's for many years. At first it was for the shrimp tacos, then the scallop tacos, then the shrimp cocktails. All still good - best in town, we think. Lately we've been craving the seafood combo platter with grilled fish and garlic shrimp. They serve everything on a big platter with salad and tortillas. Plenty to... More
