Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews

This was our second trip to the restaurant. Our first trip was pretty good. Good enough to when one of our very few "date nights," was again available, we decided to return. This time, our experience was, at best, sub-par. The food was far below the standard I would expect, and not nearly the quality to fit the excellent ambiance. The ambiance is great. The chef seems to have some really good ideas on dish strategy. That said, the taste of our meals was so mediocre, that neither my wife nor myself ate very little. Service was "ok." Not very attuned to the fact we weren't eating almost any of our meals.
Was pretty disappointing, and I can't say that we will ever return, particularly for a chance as few and far between as the opportunity to just be together without kids. There was a large party in the private dining room, and maybe that contributed to some of the sub-standard meal prep. The Bayou pasta was well below what I expected. A decent amount of shrimp (4-5), ONE tiny sliver of chicken, and 6-8 small pieces of sausage. In the end, the sauce killed it. Basically it just tasted like butter that had been dumped out of a skillet they had roasted the andouille. The sauce just gave the whole dish an overtly andouille taste, that was not good at all.
My wife's dish, Country Fried Steak, was dry, and not at all up to the level I would have anticipated for a restaurant that promotes quality food. The portions were HUGE (compliment), but she ate about 10% of her dinner, and decided that it just didn't taste good.
Funny sidenote: As big as the Country Fried Steak dinner was (humongous), the apple cobbler she ordered for desert was TINY. Also to that point, the apple cobbler didn't taste fresh, and she ate two bites, and decided it was also not great.
We generally are not restaurant critics, but hopefully the mgmt will take this as constructive criticism. Also would have been nice to have some nightly specials... There were none

I really like this place and will be back again but the one thing is the reservation really doesn't matter for them. We didn't wait for long time but specifically requested a booth. She put us not in the booth but other people in booth without reservation at the same time with us. Then she was trying not to even look at us or say something. Kind of rude! However the service was great!

We love this place! Food is always great and menu has lots to choose from. Great spot for southern classics and american cuisine. Weeknight specials offer great value and it's the best place in Marietta for Sunday Brunch. This is always at the top of our list when looking to get together with friends or family. Service is consistently good and everyone is friendly. Can't say enough good things!

Spicy blood Mary was well balanced. I ordered Fried chicken and biscuits w poached eggs. They consistently poach eggs perfectly!!! Fried chicken was crispy. Biscuits were perfect. Hash brown casserole was good but prefer crusty and brown. Overall best brunch I've had in a very long time. Great brunch menu!

Beautiful place with clean, fresh feel and modern farmhouse decor. Good options on brunch menu, pretty well executed. Service was a bit spotty, but no major fails. Great for large parties. Many big table options, and not overcrowded like too many restaurants are now.

Delicious New Year menu! Filet and fried chicken were both excellent. Mushroom toast was superb as was the dark chocolate peppermint dessert. We arrived early in the evening so it wasn't yet crowded and we could enjoy the quiet.

Soggy scrambled egg whites that soaked the English muffin, which was barely toasted-not brown at all. We had to ask for butter for our blueberry muffins. I suggest First Watch or J Christopher's instead for breakfast. There should be more choices on their menu for customers who don't eat meat or just want a healthier breakfast. We will stick to their dinner menu.

The restaurant itself is beautiful. We went on Saturday for brunch and of course bottomless mimosas. The mimosas were great, but the food was under seasoned. Severely under seasoned. I wouldn't go back, but if you like bland food, you'd love this place.

The food was tasty. My beet salad was good. My son had the kale salad, which was better. My salmon was perfectly cooked. My son had the chicken and waffles-yum. They provided a complimentary dessert for my son's birthday, which was very cool.

I meet friends for brunch once a month and we end up at Chicken & Egg often. Great food and the menu is always changing. Excellent bar selection too for those late Sunday brunches. I've also gone there for special nights like New Years Eve and pre-Xmas with the fam. Service is always top notch.

After reading reviews from unhappy former customers I wondered what was it going to be like? I am here to tell you it was a delightful experience and I will come again. It was again birthday brunch to celebrate my birthday and I loved the farm to Table, my unusual omelet was delicious, and the others in our party enjoyed their meal. Great service wonderful menu. Awesome 5 stars from me.

What a find! Was in Marietta visiting my grandmother and found this place via the OpenTable app for brunch. Everything was absolutely fantastic, from food to service. Gram had the Belgian waffle and cleaned her plate! Mom had the Yo Holla!, which was delicious. I had the Afternoon Nap, which was not only delicious as well but was definitely truth in advertising. Deducted 1 star from Ambiance only because the dining room is very loud, so it was very hard for my 91-years-young gram to hear the conversation at our table. All in all a truly wonderful place. Would definitely return and highly recommend!

We enjoyed this dining experience very much. The southern egg rolls were delicious and so were the salmon and country fried steak. The restaurant was clean and had a touch of holiday decor. Service was very good and we left knowing that we'd be back soon.
