Love the wait staff, prompt, efficient and nice. Food is good ole southern style. I especially enjoy the catfish, meatloaf, and pulled pork entrees. The sides are good to. Deserts are tempting but I've never had room for em. The price is right as well! Over all great place.

We were seated quickly and order taken quick, waitress very nice. I ordered the Baked Chicken Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans. My husband ordered the 12 oz Ribeye mashed potatoes, and green beans. The waitress came out with my husband's meal & informed me that they just told her they were sold out of the chicken that they could fix... More

Our family loves Mary's Kitchen. The Fort Walton Beach area is our hometown, though we currently live out of state up north, so we never miss going to Mary's Kitchen when we're in town visiting family. It's a popular place with those from the local area, and a best kept secret for those who are not from this area, but... More

I have never had a meal here I didn't like. I eat out 5 days a week too. Great small town feel inside. Chicken and Dumplings are unbelievable, just wish it was a bigger portion. I'd recommend to anybody.

We learned of Mary's from local family. It is nothing fancy, just great food in a family style atmosphere. We lunch there often and they do a good business. The staff is friendly and the food comes out quickly after ordering. This is a great place to go for home style cooking of a choice of meats/seafood, home cooked veggies,... More

Plentiful pulled pork and two sides for $8. Family-owned atmosphere. Pulled pork juicy and complemented well with sauce at table. Mac and cheese soggy, drowned in overdone cheese. Green beans tender and flavorful but too salty. Pie bar. Mmmm.

We were looking for something different and local and we saw Mary's tucked away in a strip mall. Small cosy restaurant that packed a punch. The ladies working treated you as if they'd always known you. The food was great; pulled pork, ribs, and fried pork chops. The sides were also good. Desserts were absolutely wonderful.

The gentleman serving us was very out going and friendly. We eat early, usually by 5pm to avoid the crowds at any restaurant. Here at Mary's they have daily specials. The evening we went they were chicken and dumplings and 10 or 12 oz ribeye steaks. My wife went with the c&d and I went with the 10 oz steak.... More

Mary's Kitchen, located next to Wynn Dixie in Fort Walton Square on Eglin Parkway, is one of Fort Walton's long-time restaurants. Their menu focuses on "old-fashioned" basic things like fried catfish, meatloaf, baked chicken, pork chops, and salads. They serve the best fried green tomatoes I've ever had - or, you can order fried pickles which are also very good.... More
