If you know, you know. And Mary's Diner just knows. If we are in town we stop here every time. Local owners who do it right and will go out of their way to make every person who walks through the door feel welcome. You...get way more than you pay for here, and the prices are outrageously good. Hard to get a spot, so get here early!More

We came here for dinner after an afternoon in Geneva-on-the-Lake and it was nice to sit on a quiet side street. We sat on the porch and had a nice meal with friends. We mostly got breakfasty foods but there is more diner fare available....Definitely seemed like a healthier option than most of the places on the strip.More

Outstanding food. The best customer service I've had in a very long time. So welcoming and friendly. Menu has tons of options. If I were a local I'd be a regular here.

A friend and I were doing the covered bridge tour in Ashtabula County and needed lunch! We were in Geneva and picked Mary’s Diner! What fun … this is a real diner! The decor reminds us older folks of the Sinclair dinosaur; Texaco; route66 and...much more. The register is right above the front end of a red Chevy! But the best part was the food! We both had the fried perch sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Great taste! And the French fries were so awesome: crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. I’m going back when in the area!!!!More

Big menu and they served everything all day long. Place was very clean and everyone wore masks, which I appreciated. Cute decor and food was good and served super hot. Nowhere near anywhere we normally go near the wineries, but it was worth the drive...from the hotel.More

We stayed in town 3 days and ate at Mary’s Diner 3 times! We didn’t have a bad meal. Breakfast was served all day and was delicious. Loved the omelet and glazed French toast. Lunch was your typical diner food and didn’t disappoint. We enjoyed...their mozzarella sticks and milkshakes. Dinner specials looked great too! They had chicken fingers, burgers, lasagna and more. My only regret is that we ran out of time for pierogies. Service was excellent, even when short staffed.More

Service was excellent - ask for Emily! We ordered a Mickey Mouse pancake - it came with whipped cream and was a hit! Other favorites were the steak and eggs and Cinnamon Bread!

Nice retro-60s diner with all the trappings from the menu to the decor to the 60s music playing in the background. Decent food and pricing, and young waitresses kept things moving pleasantly. Good stop for lunch if heading to the lake area, just a little...east of center of town.More
