Don't judge the quality of the food by the outside appearance! Everything we tried was excellent. The Cinnamon Rolls are a must!!! It is only open limited hours but it is a must for a good ole county breakfast!!

LOVE this quant little place. It's old, small and the floors are uneven and creek! But the service and food are top notch! They have a gift shop upstairs that sells shirts, jewelry,Joey and Rory music. We had biscuits and gravy, pork tenderloin sandwich, omelet and chicken salad sandwich. They were all great! The omelet had more toppings inside than... More

We went to MarcyJo's this past Thursday and it was worth the wait and worth the trip to visit. We have been wanting to visit ever since we heard about it from Joey + Rory's Can You Duet submission video. It was a special treat to actually meet Marcy. Wish we could of met Rory & little Indy but wasn't... More

Marcy Jo's is a fun place to visit out in the country. We have been here twice. It is a quaint vintage experience in a very old building. The food is very good. The issue I have is that everything is to excess. The cinnamon rolls are outstanding, but under a massive, really unreasonable, amount of icing. If there is... More

My Wife and I have eaten there 4 times in the travel to my mother in-laws, we met Joey, Rory, Marcy, Hope and Larry Black. The food is as good as my Grandmother made for me as a boy. Marcy has got to be the sweetest Red Head country girl I have ever met, we now leave home for Mississippi... More

Excellent food. Down home cooking. Friendly service. The stuffed French Toast on Saturdays is fantastic. They have incredible baked goods, the best carrot cake I've ever had. You've just got to love a place that asks if you want a cinnamon roll as an appetizer! Or if you want your bacon crispy!! Reasonable prices, great cozy atmosphere. Expect a wait... More

Be prepared for a long wait, the place is tiny. The food is quite good. The service is the type where you must ask for refills because they don't check back. (At least our waitress didn't) We would come back though. Get a cinnamon roll while you wait for your breakfast!

After hearing how great the breakfast was out here I finally made the early morning trip. It was well worth the effort. Everything was great. There was four of us and everyone got something different and it was all exceptional. I will have to get used to the early morning trip because I will be back.

Stopped in for breakfast -12 in our group- and service was top notch! I had a Cinnamon roll as an appetizer. It was warm and melt in your mouth good! Shared omelette with my spouse and it was more than enough food. Highly recommend going out of your way to eat here.
