Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews
First time there and had invited guests ...
First time there and had invited guests for brunch. Mediocre service with uninspiring food and presentation. Donuts were like hockey pucks with overly sweet frosting; food had to be returned as stone cold; horrible plate presentation. Was shocked it had great reviews in past. Disappointing on multiple things. Will not return.

Great dining experience. Went for supper, not busy. Service was ok, food fantastic!!! The braised beef short ribs were so good. The kale Cesar salads was perfectly cheesy. I'd skip to pimento fritters, but the tomatoes jam that came with it--unbelievable! Definitely, will go back.

Make sure you use Open Table reservations to dine here. Comfort breakfast foods and delicious mimosas. Just wish the food was hotter when served! Any egg dish is great; I've had many of them. French toast is for sweetaholics. Plenty of free parking in shopping center lot.

This is our second time to Chicken and the Egg and again we were blown away by the quality of the food, the attentiveness and politeness of the staff, and value. We are definitely going to be repeat customers for life. Great brunch spot!!

A group of friends went for a birthday and we all had a great time. The food is really fantastic, and the service is very good and accommodating to special requests. It was a bit loud, so we had trouble hearing the server, but she was happy to repeat messages several times around our table. If you go with a group, I highly recommend ordering and sharing multiple desserts; we shared five and they were all delicious!

I have long frequented the Chicken and the Egg with many different friends, who have different palates, for varying occasions. It is my favorite Marietta restaurant for supper/dinner! The food is appetizing,delicious, beautifully presented, whether it is appetizer or entree or salad or dessert. I love it all! And the staff are always friendly and obliging.

This was the first time my husband and I have been to Chicken and The Egg (after hearing about it on the Atlanta Eats TV show) and the menu had SO many great options...we couldn't decide! Safe to say we will be back again soon and often.

We came here for my birthday brunch. We were seated right away in a big awesome booth. Our server was fantastic! Of course, I forgot her name. She was a young attractive brunette who was working on 9/25 and she had the section of booths that are towards the back. She was very sweet and we never had to wait for anything. She was on top of the bottomless mimosas. The three of us LOVED our food but we always do :) thank you for a very enjoyable birthday experience!

I always enjoy going to the Chicken and the Egg. The food is excellent and such a treat from the "chain" choices. The service is impeccable and the ambiance is warm, welcoming, and simple. You never know what treasures you'll find tucked away and off the beaten path. This is definitely one of them.

Had a wonderful brunch during our first visit to Chicken and The Egg. The food and service were so great that we also went back for dinner on the same day! Our server, Jessica, was wonderful!! The quality of the food and the prices can't be beat! This is definitely going to be "our first choice" for great food ISO close to our home! Highly recommend Chicken and The Egg and will return soon with friends!!

Chicken and the Egg is my wife's and my go to place when we need a date night. It has never disappointed. We were fortunate to be there this time during restaurant week and had the benefit of trying the prix fixe 3 course restaurant week meal for $25. Everything was perfect, and the Nashville hot chicken was one of the best things that I've put in my mouth - so much flavor! Great atmosphere; great meal!

My running group and I met there and were seated promptly. Our party size was one person larger than what I reserved and they were very accommodating. The waitress we had was very sweet and served us well. The food was served quickly and taste amazing. We loved our time spend at Chicken and The Egg.

We made a reservation for brunch online then had to wait over 20 minutes for our table! When we asked, we were told they have a problem with their online system that allows too many people to make reservations. Turn off your online system if this is the case! It was so frustrating. The food was fine, nothing to write home about.

It was our second visit...the first day we had a Sunday brunch without reservations, which causef us to have a long wait. Once we got seated, we quickly realized that it was worth every minute of wait time. The food was delicious and the services were excellent.
This particular night was our 7th year anniversary that we celebrated with our daughter and every aspect of the overall experience obliged our special occasion. We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to coming back soon.

This restaurant offers a wonder varied southern menu with focus on farm to table. Service is always wonderful, not hurried, knowledgeable of menu and options, and courteous.
Food is freshly prepared and offers a variety of meats including fish. Sides are yummy too.
We have eaten here several times. Be sure to check out facebook page for special events. Check out the Thursday 2 for $25!!

I wish they were open later, as they closed at 9:00. I suggested it to friends because it's quieter than most contemporary high ceiling restaurants, though it got a bit hard to hear at our booth when the next booth got loud. Our waitress was very familiar with the food and could easily advise about gluten-free options. The manager was very friendly and checked on us, too. I've eaten here twice and enjoy the cuisine.
