Description: Established in 1950. Started in the early 50's by Mary Ferritto, Mary's Kitchen was literally based out of her own private kitchen. Just down New St., Mary would make special meals and sell them to the hungry tourists frequenting Buckeye Beach when it was still a public beach. Surviving through the turmoil in the 70's, Mary's Kitchen is a testament to businesses in the district that providing good food at affordable prices is a sound business philosophy that will last for decades. Through almost 70 years, Mary's Kitchen has changed hands only a few times, and several of the "Daily Specials" are the same recipes that Mary developed in the 50's. The house that Mary built still stands today, with an add on commercial kitchen and additional dining space. It's truly history you need to experience first hand.

“Home cooking served in tiny cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Real home cooking; daily specials; fresh-faced college student servers. Sit on the screened-in porch and enjoy the Lake Erie breeze 1/2 block away. Cash only.

“Real Home Made Good Old Dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

It was reccomened by several people from the hotel we stayed and some store personnels from the strip.

They were not wrong! It was a nice surprise. We spoke with other visitors and they said they come back every time they visit the area. We completely agree!

We had breakfast items - corned beef hash and country fried steak with eggs. Both were excellent. Not greasy at all, cooked with real care. The server was very attentive as well. We can't wait to revisit them!

“Loved This Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Mary's Kitchen is a 50's themed diner in Geneva and we loved it.

The menu was exactly as we expected and the burgers, shakes and other dishes were excellent. This is what America does best!!

Great value, good service and we would definatley eat here again.

“Good home cooking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

We have dined there many Friday nights this spring including this past Friday night. Again, we were not disappointed. The fish fry is very good, and we have tried chopped steak, stuffed peppers, and pulled pork sandwich. Parking close could be a problem on weekend nights, but if you have a spot already on the strip, a short walk will be worth it. Warning!!! They only take cash at this time!
