“Not an Irish Pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Don't be misled by this establishment's name, it is a fine, fine restaurant in a wonderful old house. Whether an unhurried lunch or a full evening meal, take the time to enjoy the service, the food and your surroundings here...don't be in a hurry. The waitstaff will move as quickly as you dine, but don't.... From the inhouse salad dressings to the gumbo to the seafood and meat to the dessert table to the high ceilings and creakly floors, this is all something to savor!

“Gumbo to die for.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Their food is very good. They make the best gumbo of anywhere on the coast, and that includes New Orleans.

“Love Mary Mahoney's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I don't get to eat here often- it is a little expensive, but when I want to "dine" not eat- I want to go here. I had fried shrimp and it was excellent-my husband had the seafood platter and ate every bite. The salads were ok but the homemade dressings was great!The bread is wonderful too- in fact we asked for extra! Our server was very personable and attentive. We were too full for dessert. We went on a Saturday night, fairly early, and did not have to wait which to me is kind of a red flag..... usually on Saturday night there is a line no matter how early you go! Hoping MM is still the quality restaurant on the coast!I think it is!

“A Favorite Turned Slightly Disappointing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This restaurant has always been a favorite, especially to my sister and me, as we sometimes meet on the Gulf Coast and spend a couple days together. I discovered Mary Mahoney's on the internet one time while trying to find somewhere really nice. The food was always excellent, and the staff so very nice and attentive. We had not been since Katrina, and had occasion to go there not to long ago. It was one of those times you could not exactly put your finger on what the difference was, but just was not the same as before. The food was good, but not outstanding, especially for the prices. Our waiter certainly was excellent, though. We will give it another chance, as one disappointing time is not enough to give up on somewhere you really loved. Just the history there is so interesting that it is certainly worth a trip.
