Great Resto!

Had a great seafood dinner at Mary's! Had red snapper filet made to perfection! Fish tacos to start! Great ambiance- they have two pool tables if you want to play a few rounds!

Had a very nice dinner. We both had the fresh catch red snapper which was a lot of food, included potatoes, vegetables and salad along with a generous portion of red snapper. Would have skipped the salad first because too much food for me, but it was good also. Service was good and friendly.

There was something for everyone in our party of 8 and the only thing wrong was we did not go therre until out last night, Otherwise we would have... More

The place was totally overpriced and the food sub-standard. The pizzas were undercooked, the shrimps unshelled, and the total for two pizzas and three appetizers plus 3 drinks was over $100!

The pizza here is outstanding...so is pretty much everything else on the menu/specials chalkboard! When my family of 4 was staying in the Santa Teresa area for 10 days, I think we ate here almost every other day! We were kinda on a fish taco-binge and Mary's fish tacos were not my favorite, but everything else was really good. We... More

The food here is great because it's very fresh. Veggies and chickens all come from their next door farm. The staff is friendly and it's a bit of a hike to get here from other parts of town but totally worth it. The pizzas were fantastic with all those farm ingredients for sure.

I had dinner at Mary's with a group of about 11 people which was perfect as we shared a few pizzas while playing pool. Fun setting and nice staff. I would definitely recommend Mary's~

The food here was excellent. They lived up to their fine local reputation. But look carefully at who may be playing pool and avoid the tables near those pool tables if necessary. A group of out of control kids started throwing balls around the table during our visit and we finally moved ourselves to get away from the racket.
