Great fatty food ruined by absolutely disgusting staff. Your supposed to have laid back fun staff at these establishments. They are so cold and rude, we gave them three shots but we are DONE. Fail. 1. Walked in, looked around for waiter or table, they kept ignoring us so we took a seat. Waitress finally approached us (long dark hair... More

Their image is underground, direct and not the place to bring out your parents type place. The service is of course not exceptional/conventional but it fits the theme and adds the experience, however their customer service was tested when they got my order wrong, no fuss was made, waiter came up to say "our bad crudely" with apologies and fixed...

We arrived at about 6:30 on a Friday night and there was a crowd of around 15 people already waiting outside. After 20 minutes and some tasty complimentary fries, we were ushered in. The atmosphere is good with loudish music and a huge range of beers, cocktails, and spirits. And of course there are the famous burgers. I enjoyed a... More

So Mary's in Newtown is a pretentious up your bottom too cool for school kinda joint. The wine list will set you back a buck or two. Still I wasn't never disappointed with the wine. Just think that for the surroundings it's a bit much. Mary's bar looks like the set out of the movie from dusk till dawn. It's... More

This is an example of a place that knows when simple works better than complicated. I get the impression it's a bar first and a restaurant second, but even though the menu is sparse the menu items they focus on are exceptional for what they are. My first visit several months ago was on a midweek late afternoon, the place... More

Arrived at 230pm on a Saturday arvo. Waited 20 mins for a table and ordered food and drinks. Drinks came quick but we waited for our burgers for 40 minutes! Overrated, loud and the burgers weren't even good. Don't come here hungry. Won't be going back when there are better quicker serving places around the corner on King st.

The secret is out as seen by the long snaking queue after about midday on the weekend which extends from the upstairs restaurant to the pub downstairs. This is the place to go if you love a great beer washed down with your favourite beer. The cheeseburgers are great and the Mary's burgers almost as good. You can't go past... More

OK, So I've been to Mary's only three times, the most recent being Tuesday and I just want to put it out there... you MUST give the mushroom burger (approx. $12) a go! So much flavour & the quality has never failed! My husband & I can't recommend this enough! If there's one place you can go vegetarian & not... More

Bar downstairs attic style restaurant upstairs. Dark lighting and suited kore to a young hip crowd. Burgers were tasty and again unique for the area. American in style in that they were sweet and on the junk food side more than trying to be on the healthier style. Totally went well with what this place is trying to achieve. A... More
