I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work on Saturday! The tables looked beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was so gracious. Everything had exactly the right, garden party feel that we were hoping for. David and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening, and it was so nice to know I had you to count on, to pull everything together for us.

Everyone we’ve had the chance to talk to is telling us what a wonderful time they had – many thanks to you and the team at Mary’s, for putting together such a wonderful night for us!!

Best Wishes,

Stacie Wilk


The rehearsal dinner was fabulous, the setting was so lovely, and your staff was so helpful and friendly that it made our dinner just perfect. Thank you so very much for everything and please give our sincere thanks to your wonderful staff. You were an absolute pleasure to work with and you can be sure if we ever are in Greenville again we will seek you out for a wonderful meal at a delightful location.

And everybody was talking about the chicken and the best sweet potato casserole ever the next day!  You have an amazing place!

Thanks for everything.

Hi Mary –

I just want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful rehearsal dinner on Friday night. The food was delicious and your staff was very attentive. Our out-of-town guests loved the quaintness of the cottage and the view of the park. Many of them were able to walk around and enjoy the park after dinner. We were also very fortunate with the weather, which was perfect. Overall we had a wonderful experience.

I also want to thank you for your help with the menu. Kristine was able to enjoy the meal without being concerned about having a reaction the night before her wedding. She was a beautiful bride.

With much gratitude,

Paula & Michael McGarry

From the bottom of my heart, I want you to know how grateful I am for all your expertise and hard work. Brittany’s wedding was perfect — in her words “Amazing!”. We thank you for that. The food was wonderful; the cottage, the garden and the terrace were beautiful. You made our planning so easy. Your guidance and advice made it financially affordable for us. You took care of the details so I didn’t have to worry. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the service from your staff. Mary’s at Falls Cottage was just what Brittany wanted. She got the simple, but elegant wedding she’s always wanted.

Dear Mary,

It was so nice to get your email the day after the wedding. We left Sunday for a honeymoon week at Kiawah so I am just now catching up on emails.

I can’t tell you how much Bert & I appreciated you on our wedding day, as you attended to every detail and made sure everything went perfectly. The evening was indeed everything I had hoped for and more. All of our guests had a fabulous time and raved about our wedding venue. I’m glad you enjoyed the wedding and our guests, right down to the little ones.

We would love to stop by next time we’re in Greenville. Thanks again for everything you did to make our wedding so lovely.

Warm regards,

We had brunch on June 2nd of this year.  I can’t stop raving
about your Shrimp & Grits.  Yesterday, I was at Rose’s on Union Street
in San Francisco aand had their breakfast offering of polenta with
tarragon chicken sausage, poached eggs, and spicy tomato relish. While
quite good it could not compare to your shrimp & grits.  You might
have ruined me.  We have nothing like it here in Michigan.

Is it possible to share your recipe for this delicious dish?  If not,
perhaps just an ingredient list and I can experiment with portions.

I also wanted to say that often I ask for fresh ground pepper or hot
sauce for dishes.  Yours, however was seasoned perfectly, for me a
very unusual circumstance.  In fact, just my writing you is unusual
for me.

Thanks again for a great experience,

Joel Carpenter

We were married at Mary’s on July 12, 2014. We couldn’t have chosen a more fabulous venue. I always knew the day would be great but had no idea just how perfect they would make it! Everything was amazing: from the Food, the beautiful venue, the staff at Mary’s, and just how wonderfully they put everything together. It was an absolutely perfect afternoon and we were even lucky to have beautiful weather for the day! Thank you so much to Mary, Kent and her staff for making our day a dream come true!

Thanks again!!!

Miss Mary,

I wanted to thank you for hosting our rehearsal dinner last Friday. The food was fabulous and everything I could have wished and better. Your staff went out of their way to make everything perfect that evening. Our family is still talking about the wonderful food, wonderful service and wonderful setting for our once in a life-time occasion.

Many, many thanks to you and your staff.

Hi Mary,

We can’t even begin to tell you how much we appreciated all that you and your wonderful staff did for us last night and in the weeks leading up to our wedding. It was such a perfect day and we are so grateful! You guys went above and beyond to make our day so special

Many many thanks again!!! I will be sure to share pictures as soon as we have them!

Dear Mary,

On our anniversary trip to Greenville, we ate at Mary’s for lunch…perfect! I had ravioli and a salad and my husband had a meatless sandwich with rice…great prices, awesome food…I was curious if Rachael Ray had ever stopped by because she would rave about it!

Thank you so much!

Jessica did a fabulous job with the engagement party last night that we gave for our daughter and her fiancé. She had great ideas and carried them out in a very professional manner.  I think that you are fortunate to have her on your staff as she worked so well with us as we planned the event.

The food was great also, and our guests enjoyed themselves so much.

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful wedding we had last weekend at the Cottage. Your staff in unbelievable.

From the first meeting to our last, your staff answered all of our questions, were always very professional, worked well with a stressed mother of the bride and gave the extra support we all needed. They went over and above to make the wedding special. Kent was so helpful, he took time to call me back several times to answer our questions about the beer and wine. Please also give a personal thank you to Miss Libby — the food was the best! Everyone is still talking about how delicious it was. One friend said she wanted to take a spoon and start eating the broccoli salad right out of the bowl!

Katie and Greg have many wonderful memories of their beautiful wedding. Many thanks to you and all of the employees that worked the weekend of our wedding. You were perfect.

Hi Mary,

We are so proud of how this weekend turned out. Our venue decision was the best ever.
You and your team were awesome.I heard many positive comments all through the evening of the wedding. Kim and I are very pleased and thank you from the bottom of our heart.

Mary’s is beautiful.

Getting married at Falls Cottage has been a dream of mine for several years. It’s intimate with beautiful landscaping and overlooks Falls Park. Our wedding was perfect and much of that was thanks to Mary. She was so kind and supportive and she knew what she was doing! Everything ran so smoothly, my husband and I literally did not have to worry about a thing. She was such a pleasure to work with, as well as all of her staff! When we told her about our 90 year old great-grandparents and how special they were to us, she made a point to serve them food herself and escort them around the property. She even walked them to their car and sent them off at the end of the night! I cannot thank her enough for the kindness and generosity she showed us that day.This venue is small and can only accommodate 100 people, but with the location, and the fact that they do their own catering, it ended up being very cost effective. I have gotten so many compliments over the last few weeks from our wedding guests, raving about how much they enjoyed the food. Mary’s catering really does make amazing food and your guests will not be disappointed.

Our biggest concern was the traffic and noise from main street. And looking back, I don’t remember hearing any of it. In fact we went back and watch our ceremony footage and during the ceremony there was an ambulance siren in the background. It went on for 5 mins, but neither of us, or the family ever remember hearing it during the actual event. The atmosphere was so romantic and beautiful, and the moment so intimate, that the rest of the world just fell away.

If you’re looking for a beautiful wedding location that is on the smaller side, definitely check out Falls Cottage. It was one of the best decisions we made!

We had such a fantastic time at the wedding and reception! The food was wonderful, the decor was great, and your staff was fabulous and so attentive! You made our wedding truly special and we can’t thank you enough. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Best regards,

Diane and Mark

Hi Mary,

So many thanks to you and your staff for a beautiful event. The food was outstanding; the service was great. We loved being on the deck, as well.

I know you’ll have repeat customers from this experience! Thank you, again.

Best regards,


Hey Mary!

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful our wedding was. Candy was absolutely on her game, and so incredibly easy to work with. She was there when we needed her and in the background when we didn’t. She was wonderful to all our family and friends … and we heard nothing but compliments about your staff! Candy is hands down your biggest asset! I can’t say enough just how happy we were to have her in charge of our wedding!

The food was phenomenal!!! If most brides don’t eat, THEY ARE MISSING OUT!!! The food was everything we could have hoped for and MORE! The presentation was beautiful; the food was fresh and most importantly delicious beyond words. I am still getting emails about the food. Thank you so much for making it such a joy!

Lastly, thank you Mary. The restaurant and garden offered the perfect backdrop to our dream wedding! Kevin and I wanted to keep it simple and elegant, and Mary’s offered every bit of that. The best decision we made was to choose Mary’s restaurant, and we thank you for your hospitality. We look forward to many more events with you!

With love and warmest regards,

Lea and Kevin Robinson

Hi Mary,

The weekend went very well. Friday night was lovely. The tables looked fabulous (in my opinion), the food was delicious and we had a great crowd.

The wedding was beautiful. Christ Church Episcopal is very special and the wedding guild did an outstanding job keeping everyone in place.  The reception was amazing as well!

Thanks for working with me on the rehearsal dinner. I agree that planning an event of this importance is difficult from a distance but everything worked out. Miles and I both knew what we wanted and you made it happen for us. I had several compliments on the cornbread salad. Thank you for giving it a try.

I look forward to returning to your restaurant in the future.

Hi Jessica,
Our guests had a fabulous time. The bride was so pleased with her very special brunch. We found the space the perfect balance of intimate, relaxed and formal. The view from the top porch was breathtaking and our guests were so impressed with the venue.
I must commend your team. I received a call that morning with concerns of weather. Kent quickly and clearly explained to me our options and his recommendation for accommodating our group. The move to the porch was the best decision. The view from the top was just beautiful.
Upon arrival, I was quickly greeted and welcomed. We were allowed in when we got there to get our decorations on the table which our host group much appreciated. Service was timely and efficient and the meal was wonderful.
It is sometimes difficult to plan an out of town event, not knowing much about the venue. Your assistance in helping us coordinate from afar was so appreciated.
The gentlemen helping us were so polite and kind. They even offered to help load items in our car which was very much appreciated. They really helped top the experience.
Tremendous thanks for you help. The event was fantastic. I will be recommending Mary’s at Falls Cottage to anyone planning an event in your area.

To the Mary’s staff,

Thank you for helping make this day a very special occasion for Marc and Neely. The food was excellent. Its presentation was beautiful. Everyone just raved over the shrimp and grits. The sweet potato casserole was the best I have ever had and my opinion was seconded more than once. I cannot say enough about the food. This is certainly not restaurant food, but more like a personally prepared special meal.

The facility is beautiful in its setting but the way the staff arranged the tables and the chairs for the service added to the beauty of the park. Your staff is excellent. Dealing with all the details, changing things to accommodate the weather change, making sure the bride and groom were pleased, and CARING. That describes their attitude. They cared enough to make things wonderful. We expressed our gratitude on Saturday evening and again as we breakfasted on Sunday morning, but please let all three know how much we appreciate their taking care of us.

I cannot express enough our gratitude to you and your entire staff for making our son and daughter-in-law’s rehearsal dinner / wedding the most memorable experience. It was a true delight to work with you throughout the past eight months in preparation for this wonderful time in our lives. You far exceeded our expectations in ensuring that everything was beautiful, the food wonderful, providing resources that may be useful during the planning phase, and ensuring that everyone was having a great time. The staff was pleasant throughout both nights. We have received numerous compliments about the location, the food, and what a great time everyone had. Thank you so much and we will certainly, and already have, recommend you to others.

Once again, THANK YOU for an outstanding job!

I don’t know that words can convey how perfect our daughter’s wedding was at the Cottage. From the moment we first contacted you and sat down with Candy we were provided with outstanding service and communication. Candy saw to it that every detail was addressed, and handled any situation that came up with professionalism and grace. Her guidance and opinions were invaluable, especially in our circumstance of being very new to Greenville. To have this wonderful memory of Candace and Jason’s special day just solidifies Greenville being home to us now. Thanks to all of you for everything – it will be our pleasure to recommend Falls Cottage to friends and family!

Warmest regards,

We cannot thank you enough for the most perfect rehearsal dinner. The food was absolutely delicious; every single dish worth mentioning, and people did all night!  I had so many people tell me that they had never had such good food at a party that large, and never such good food at a rehearsal dinner. Wow!  We were so delighted to be hosting such a beautiful, and tasty party.

Your staff was exceptional. Please thank them for us, again; I enjoyed every minute of the night.  The stars were out and we heard the baseball fireworks as we were leaving; altogether a tremendous evening.

You have been such a delight to meet and helped make a special night for us so memorable.

 My best to you,

Mary Ellen

I just wanted to write you and tell you how much we enjoyed having our wedding at Mary’s Restaurant! It was absolutely perfect and we have had so many people tell us how wonderful it was. I will recommend Mary’s to everyone!

I am especially grateful for Candy and the hard work she put forth to make it all go so smoothly. I do a lot of event planning myself and she clearly went out of her way to help make it all work out so nicely. You are lucky to have her and each time I talked or met with her, she encouraged me to ask for her help at any time. You certainly don’t find that type of customer service at most places. She completely researched rental companies to solve our problem with the tent and everyone commented on how great it all was. She is wonderful! Everyone loved the food too and many are saying that this was the best wedding that they have been to. I was 100 % pleased! Thanks again to all of you!
