Join us for a pre theatre dinner at Mary Mac's Tea Room. This event is also open to those not attending Million Dollar Quartet at the Fox. Mary Mac's has free parking. It about two blocks from the Fox (you will have to move your car after you eat).

Mary Mac’s Tea Room opened in 1945, today it is the last of sixteen tea rooms that once dotted intown Atlanta in the 1940s. Mary Mac's is still there 65 years later because they focus on serving made-from-scratch true southern fare served with genuine southern hospitality.

Mary Mac’s has certainly grown over the years. In 1945 they had one dining room; today they have 6 bustling dining rooms and a full service bar.

If it’s your 1st visit to Mary Mac’s, be sure to ask for your complimentary cup of Pot Likker…mmm mmm. And, don’t forget to treat yourself to the Southern classic, Fried Okra.

Some traditions at Mary Mac’s are kept for sentimental reasons; some are maintained because they work so well. They keep pencils on the tables for filling out orders, a practice that Mary McKenzie originally started so if an order was incorrect it would not be the server’s fault. Also, in the era before sophisticated computers, individually written orders were an easy way to keep track of how many customers ate at Mary Mac’s each day.

Although famous for their Sweet Tea (“Table Wine of the South”), Mary Mac’s also features a full bar with the house specialties, Mint Julep Martini & Peach Martini.

So come join Celebrate Atlanta for a main dish, two sides and roll at Mary Mac's.

You can order straight off the menu or you can choose to sit at a table that wants to dine family style.

Option for members - family style unlimited dining

Additional choice but must be for an entire table (minimum of 2). Three entrees, three sides, dessert and fresh hot breads served family style and all you can eat. $20.95 per person.

So if you are going to the theater with us, join us for a great meal with free parking and a two minute drive to the Fox. If you are not going to the theater but want to dine with us, feel free to sign up.
