When I first saw the restaurant I really wanted to get inside the building. I checked the menu and the prices were cheaper than I thought they would be. I enjoyed dining on the balcony overlooking the river. The inside is classy too. The service was prompt and friendly. I had an omelette with grits and toast. The omelette was... More

The owner seated our group of 13 without blinking an eye. We'd only called him about 10 minutes before we arrived. All of the staff were helpful, with quick service in a restaurant that was packed for lunch. The pimento cheese appetizer drew raves from our table of 5, and I recommend the hot chicken salad.

The food here is not the real draw for lunch or brunch. It's the view! This is one of Greenville's most wonderful treasures. Having lunch at Mary's is not only relaxing, but sitting outside in the garden or upstairs on the outdoor deck is also sensory overload. Sitting on the outdoor deck upstairs provides a beautiful panoramic view of Falls... More

We had a light goat cheese salad. Sat on porch overlooking falls park. Lovely spot. But if you like a glass of wine or beer with lunch, that's not gonna happen.

If you are in the area this a must stop on a lovely day. Overlooks the waterfalls in a historically restored building or set outside in a charming setting and the food is excellent! reasonably price and certified southern delicacies that are to die for. Drew and his wife will make you feel right at home. They even handle special... More

On a return visit to Greenville, SC, my son suggested this restaurant and it was a hit. The service was excellent, atmosphere outstanding and their sandwiches were to die for. Will I stop back, you bet I will and if the weather is nice I will take a back deck seat overlooking the falls. This one is a highly recommended... More

A cottage house that is a restaurant at Falls Park, surrounded by world class gardens, the Bridge, and downtown. My wife and I had a great salad for lunch. Wonderful, friendly service. Eat inside or on the patio (choose the patio if not too hot).

Exceptional service and very good food at Mary's. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony with a lovely view, but the interior of the restaurant is charming as well. The only negative observation is the music. I am a huge fan of rock and roll, fifties vintage, but it added nothing to the experience of the meal and detracted from... More

What an absolutely charming place to have a Sunday brunch. We sat outside and looked down into the park and listened to the waterfalls. I had the buttermilk waffle topped with pecans and blueberries. It melted in my mouth. My husband had pumpkin French toast which was "spiked" with pumpkin seeds and it was absolutely decadent. This restored cottage is... More
