We stopped by for lunch today. My husband had the catfish and I the meatloaf. It was delicious! The cornbread was awesome! Everyone was very friendly and treated us like family. Thank you! This visit has been a long time coming and we will visit again whenever we have the opportunity.

Had been wanting to try Marcy Jo's for a couple of years but the timing had always been wrong. Either I had just eaten or they were closed. Finally managed to make it last Saturday. The tiny parking lot was packed. No problem, there were a couple of spaces available just on the other side of a big mud hole.... More

We ate at Macy Jos for Saturday breakfast from a local recommendation. Friendly, relaxed and cinnamon buns so good you'll need to go to confession. Small and cozy, wood stove was the heat. Omelettes were loaded with goodies. Gift area too. 5 min from the Interstate and a world of great food. You cannot pass this by. Country music lore,... More

This quaint restaurant is a true gem! You will enjoy your home cooking meal in an atmosphere of being at your grandmother's table. My friend and I had the most delicious and tender roast beef with mashed potatoes. Desserts are fabulous! Marcy is a warm and welcoming hostess in her home away from home.

We are big Joey & Rory fans so this was on our must see list. Marcy was nice. There was a steady flow of people for Friday lunch. I had the catfish, it was a little thicker than I prefer, but it was cooked well and tasted wonderful. My daddy (the picky eater) had the meatloaf and said it was... More

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
