“Good, but could use some updates”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

My family and I have been going here for years and we have always enjoyed the food and service. My favorites on the menu our the rice pudding and their side of cinnamon apples complements any dinner. I do think the atmosphere seems old and dingy; it could use some updating and freshening up. The menu could use some updating too; there never seems to be anything new or different.

“Good home cooking”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

This place has a Seinfeld type cafe atmosphere. The best soups and great service. Breakfast and lunch are our favorites.

“A nice non-chain restaurant!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We have eaten here several times over the last few years, food is good, chicken tortilla soup and meatloaf were the faves. Service is good, nothing fancy just good basic menu items, prices are good, a nice senior menu. Desserts were very good, the andes mint chocolate pie was my favorite.

“Not Up To Par With Other Family Restaurants In The Area”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This family restaurant has been in Appleton since before family restaurants became popular. Many of the newer family restaurants have raised the bar by serving things like real mashed potatoes, fresh baked bread, etc. Mary's has not kept up with the trend. Our party of four ate there after church on a late Saturday afternoon. We all ordered something different and we all agreed that the food was so so. The service was very good and that is why I scored our visit as average.
