I dropped in out of curiosity, ordered 3 pc dark meat, mashed potatoes/gravy, and coleslaw. All was fantastic. The chicken is great and the breading is somewhat light, fresh, and tasty. Much better than KFC for sure. I especially liked the coleslaw which I suspect is homemade. I even ate inside, though most people seem to do carry-out. Frankly, the... More

I haven't been to Mary's in some time,at least two years. This is the first time back since the new owners took over. I ordered online. I think this is a new feature since the last time I ate here. I had not ever ordered online before for Mary's. Although it was easy to order, the form was a little... More

My Husband and I have been eating at Mary's chicken for 15 years . We have also hired them to supply the chicken for our graduation and birthday parties. The chicken has always been moist inside with a nice seasoning on the outside. Marys has been under a new owner who has done a fresh, clean much needed remodel to... More

Great chicken! If you like spicy wings, try them. The shrimp is good also. Appetizers are awesome. My children ate them up.

Tried out Mary's for dinner for the first time since new ownership. I was less than impressed. At the time, I was frustrated and angry. I ordered a 12 piece chicken and 2 sides and was told it would be a few minutes. The person ordering right after me was told it would be 10-15 minutes for chicken. It took... More

I'm not they type of person to leave a review so I'll try to make this short. If you want good food and at the very least mediocre service go down the street to KFC. this place is horrible. I was looked at like I was a moron for ordering then had to Waite 15 minutes for Mac and cheese... More

Outside is crispy and stays that way, doesn't go all greasy & soggy like KFC and others. I've bought their chicken in catering trays for all of my kids grad parties & EVERYONE asks where I got it! Haven't tried the fish yet though. As far as sides go, the Cole slaw is good but I'm not a big fan... More

Well my wife and I are a little disappointed with Mary's. The chicken was overly crispy and the potato wedges tasted very dry. It seems that everything was a little over cooked and done. We will be trying KFC next time....Sorry Mary's!

This was my second visit here, I chalked my first visit up to them just having a bad day and working the kinks out under new management. My second experience was not much different than the first. Customer service was lacking and the chicken was not all that good.

Mary's fabulous Chicken and Fish has reopened with new hours. They are only open from 4PM to 9PM, but their website and brochures say they are open from 11AM to 9PM. With that said their chicken is very good and will probably frequent them again. Apparently the chicken is deep fried.
