This is where the fresh caught fish, shell fish and big clams come in to the harbor and are off loaded. This restaurant sits right above it all.

The only reason I go to Mary's is the shrimp cocktails. The shrimp is fresh, the taste is great, service attentive and polite, and the view is great.

Mary's is delicious. Overlooks the ocean so the views are amazing. Sunset photos are beautiful. Service is great too. Order a platter with shrimp and fish. You won't be disappointed.

Even on a hot day you feel a wonderful breeze coming off of the Sea of Cortez, feels fantastic. The views are always amazing. Get the shrimp every way they'll serve it. We always stop at Mary's for the seafood. Love this place!

We had wonderful service! Staff was very attentive. We sat on the second floor and the view was amazing. The Food was decent I was just missing a little more spiciness but that's just my own taste. Other than that, everything was great for a decent price.
