We've been to Aunt Mary's for breakfast a couple of times after recommendations from friends. During both visits we've been very pleased. The food is very much your "diner" fare, but it tastes great. Between my husband and I, we've had the biscuits and gravy, waffle, and one of the skillets. All of them have exceeded expectations. The service is... More

Been in from Chicago 2-3 times and their meals are great but the soup are superb. The Sweet Potato and Tomato is a must have. New England Clam Chowder also delicious. See you again when back in town.

I love this eatery. Close to home. Great menu offerings. Kinda like an upscale diner. Always great service. I had a wonderful ghilled tuna sandwhich and fresh fruit salad. Breakfasts are always excellent. They have two eateries one is the main diner and the other a smaller cafe. I love both. Clean, bright and inviting.

Stopped for lunch one day and found it to be very friendly staff and reasonable prices. Servings were more than adequate and ended up taking some of it back to my hotel for a later meal. The place was clean and felt very welcomed. Would definitely go back and try their breakfast sometime.

We try to eat at local restaurants, not the chains when visiting a new city. So, we tried Aunt Mary's since it's been in Rockford for "ages." The staff was very friendly and quick which is a big plus! The food was priced reasonably and was Okey Dokey, not extraordinary, fine.

We stayed at the Alpine Inn. The second morning we decided to eat a full breakfast and noticed Aunt Mary's right across the street. It was an EASY run across the road. The menu was good. The service was fast and the cost was not too pricey.

Across the street from our motel. Service was very good and the food was above average. It was not very crowded for a Saturday at 6PM which was a concern, but once we got our food we were glad we came.

The food was good and reasonably priced. You can get breakfast all day long. :) I ran out of water and the waitress forgot to bring us our bill, but otherwise, it was a good experience.

This restaurant was across the street from our hotel so we went there for supper. Three meals out of four were very good. My dad had a T-bone steak. When the waitress set it down there was a smell in the air, no one wanted to say anything.Dad ate some, it was nasty. The waitress was very nice and very... More

Sit-down, served quickly and fresh waffle. Not sure about the "bakery" offerings in the display case at the register. When cheescake has the little papers separating each piece that tells me it's manufactured and sold to restaurants - not made on site. Our breakfast was good and reasonable tho.
