We recently visited Mary Mae’s Bar & Kitchen, and it was a thoroughly disappointing experience. From the moment we walked in, the service was shockingly rude. The staff seemed disinterested and irritated by basic questions about the menu. Our server was particularly unfriendly, making us feel unwelcome throughout our order. To make matters worse, the food was severely overpriced for the quality. The portions were small, and the dishes lacked flavor and creativity. Given the high prices, I expected a much better dining experience. Adding to the unpleasant experience, the trays were dirty, which is unacceptable for any restaurant. The only reason people seem to be coming to Mary Mae’s Kitchen is because of its great ocean view location. However, a nice view does not make up for poor service, overpriced food, and dirty chipped serving trays.

Love this place!! Thank you for being so welcoming to dogs. Such a good spot, we’ve been back twice now with our dog. Each time he loves having a dip in the little pool provided outside. (What a great idea to help them cool off during summer time) Staff is always friendly, they even come round and offee treats for dogs. Food is beautiful too. Will definitely return.

If you like overpriced food and tiny portions with terrible service then this is the place for you. We had this exact experience. TWENTY SIX DOLLARS for a tiny bowl of pumpkin gnocchi. The table was littered with dirty dishes, no staff came to clean it. No table service and rude bar staff that dismissed my wife’s request for assistance. We should have brought sandwiches and had a picnic in the adjacent park rather than waste money here.

Lovely atmosphere and service. My iced coffee was great but unfortunately the fish was well over cooked and couldn't be eaten and the chicken fillet in my partners burger was tiny but she did enjoy it. I've changed this review to 4 stars from 3 due to the prompt reply and positive response. Thank you guys

We went midweek for a late breakfast. The place is nice and open with ample seating inside and out; we really enjoyed the nice breeze, views and overall relaxed vibe. It wasn't overly busy, so our coffees arrived very quickly. Food didn't take too long either and was beautifully presented and above all very tasty. Overall a very good experience!
