About Us

David and Carla Hays became the owners of Mary’s Restaurant in 1992. Although they kept the name, many of the original staff members, and the tradition for which Mary’s is known, they have made some changes along the way.

The Atrium was added to be able to accomodate larger groups, conferences and special events. The property next to Mary’s Restaurant was aquired in 2006 and Mary’s Bed and Breakfast was opened.

Updates and improvements continue at Mary’s, and the focus always remains on providing our customers with the ultimate dining experience.
