Mary Mae's

New Farm

Mary Mae's is a sprawling New Orleans-flavoured riverside bar restaurant on the ground floor of the Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm.

Occupying the prime waterfront space formerly home to Watt, Mary Mae's dishes up Louisiana-inspired cuisine with a fresh Queensland twist and Bloody Mary's 5 ways amongst its drink offerings.

Afternoons and evenings, this is a great spot to enjoy a casual bite to eat either before or after a show upstairs at the Brisbane Powerhouse or a light breakfast or lunch while on weekends Mary Mae's serves a signature brunch that is unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere in Brisbane.

Diners can take a seat on the breezy terrace or inside the industrial chic space and partake in a menu that for Starters includes King Salmon ceviche with Mary Mae's dressing, natural oysters or chilled gazpacho, vodka and natural oysters.
