Very quaint little country restaurant -- great food

We loved that this was so quaint -- just a very small little country restaurant. We waited about 45", and we understand that is a short wait. Our food was great. Wait staff was very accommodating. We'd definitely go here again!

My wife and I had breakfast at Marcy Jo's on May 12, 2015. What a treat. Marcy was on hand and so friendly. The food was superb, down home cooking. Marcy was a treat to be around. Great sense of humor and friendly as a country cousin. We had such a great time we hated to leave. A delightful place... More

Very friendly staff and good food. It's not your tipical eatery but it has real country charm with many pictures of country singers and memorabilia. It's worth the trip if you are in the area.

We visited Marcy Jo's on the day we were going to a Joey and Rory concert. I had a hamburger which was very good and large. My husband had a BLT which he said was good and large also. I had the coffee which was fine. Service was excellent. The only negative I could say was they only served soda... More

While on our way to the Joey & Rory Farmhouse Concert, we stopped at Marcy Jo's for dinner. The fried catfish was very good and the pecan pie was also good. It was just a neat place to stop and visit. Would go again. Our only complaint was that we were seated and had already got our tea when a... More

We have been big fans of Marcy Jo's in the past, but a recent breakfast changed our mind. The service was slow, and there was nothing special about the food. The attitude of the waitress was much too casual. We don't plan on going back.

Slow down; enjoy a cup of coffee. Quaint country restaurant, with music relics on the walls. Food is good.

Very average food, no different than what I can cook in my own skillets; rude server who seemed to think she could act & speak to anyone any way she wanted. I can't believe they let her get away with that snotty attitude, but someone near our table said something about her being a relative of the owners, I believe... More

While visiting daughter in Nolensville, TN, we decided to check out Columbia, TN, and while talking to my mother back in Illinois, by phone, my mother told us that the restaurant she heard about on the Joey and Rory show was near there. We finally found it by asking locals. Fun little place. Old time nostalgic atmosphere, lots of photos... More

The food is average. This is a family owned and run place. Joey & Rory (husband&wife singing group) , are part owner and it is common to see one of them. Don't be surprised if they run out of menu items. I don't make a habit of eating here but it's worth the time and money if you are visiting... More
