Had nice dinner at Mary's Family Restaurant. Generous portions. Open face hot roast beef sandwich with dark beef gravy on French fries. A Pennsylvania treat. Wife had fresh fried jumbo shrimp. Friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. Decorations scarce but open and bright.

I like going out for breakfast..but this place leaves alot to be desired. the atmosphere is more like a truck stop. my breakfast lacked anything to brag about..there was nothing to the French toast and the bacon was horrible..Next time I'll stay home and make my own. not worth a second trip for me.

Looking for a quaint, diner experience in Drums? This is the place to go! Prices are great and so is the service. Everything is cooked fresh-- even the kids meals!

Small and a little different for location, since it is on a small hill and near truck parking. Extra large parking area. Food and service is very good, prices are even better.

Mary's is a medium sized diner like restaurant located near the Cando Industrial park on Rte 309 (Hunter Highway) between Mountain Top and Hazleton, PA ( near the I80 junction) It is easily missed as it is a bit hidden from view. It is across the street from a place that has storage sheds on display. The food is delicious,... More

Following the signs for food off I-80 West, we stopped at Mary's Restaurant. It was right off the exit. In a half hour, we sat and had eggs, home fries, toast, coffee, and OJ, used the facilities (which were clean), and got back on the road. It was a nice alternative to the fast food restaurants you usually get on... More

We stayed at local HIX and this was close. It was tucked in behind a truck repair garage with old trucks and other vehicles all around. That should have been my first clue. The greasy finger stains on the pie fridge just by the door should have been the second. The kitchen staff dressed in a ball cap and jeans... More
