Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews

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.

Wonderful breakfast! I have a food allergy that is sometimes very frustrating and difficult to work around but the chef made sure to watch out for my allergy I everything I had. Such great service and delicious food! Will definitely come back.

Overall a terrible experience. The hostess sat us next to a table with four small children, when there were many alternatives. The children ran around the entire time, very loud, food on floor etc. Our waitress served water reaching across us, and could not remember our order, so she had to re-confirm. When she cleared the table that the children had been at, she picked up a table mat off the floor and put it back on the table. YUK.
Food was okay at best, my catfish was mushy, not crispy. Had to ask twice for more ketchup for my fries. Bill was $120 for four (only one beer and one glass of wine). No where close to a good value.
Adding insult to injury, my credit card number was hijacked after our dinner with an attempted charge at a nearby grocery store.
Not even worth speaking to the management about. This place has a long way to go.

Great breakfast we had and the staff was very knowledgeable of the Menu. Not a long wait for you meal to be served.
I have not had lunch at this restaurant, but if the breakfast was great, then I would say that the lunch and Dinner would probably be the same,

I was looking for something in the area that was unique and served a great brunch. While it was a bit risky taking my wife out for her birthday to a place neither of us had been to before, The Chicken and The Egg turned out to be a fantastic choice. Very clean, well decorated, friendly and helpful staff.... I would definitely recommend this place for brunch, we are going to come back for dinner very soon!

Pretty good, had the chicken and waffles....chicken was hot, waffles were cold. Apps very good and the desserts are tasty as well. Love the presentation. Atmosphere is nice, but the country food makes it hard to qualify this venue as a foody place.

My husband and I came here for brunch after I eyed "Snickerdoodle French Toast" on the menu (YUM)!
The atmosphere was country classic. It's deceptive looking from the outside (doesn't look like much), but there's actually a lot of space inside, including a great entertaining room for larger groups. Definitely make a reservation for brunch, because there was a wait!
There were lots of great food options, and my husband was delighted that they had appetizers and desserts for brunch too (haha). He got the chicken and waffles, and I got the aforementioned french toast. The orange juice was fresh squeezed, and we did cappuccinos (with chocolate milk!!) too. They have mimosas or $5 and bottomless mimosas for $10 (what a deal!). The kitchen was running a little behind, so our waiter brought us some biscuits and homemade strawberry jam while we waited. We hardly noticed the wait, but were happy to try the delicious biscuits!
Everyone was very friendly, the food was comforting and fantastic, and we will certainly go back.

We were delighted to find our new favorite restaurant in the Chicken and the Egg. From our first steps through the door, we found ourselves transported into a decadent humble eatery that put an exciting twist on southern comfort good. While some of our dishes were more successful than others, for example the fried green tomatoes and sticky bun bread pudding were stellar, the whole meal from beginning to end was fabulous. The excellent service, quick pacing of the meal, and beautiful ambiance made our celebratory meal absolutely magical.

Chicken and the Egg is a favorite "go to" location when I'm in Marietta, either for personal or business purposes. It is a solid restaurant, with an ever changing menu of locally sourced items. Always delicious, always fresh, always friendly. Highly recommended.

We chose to do brunch for our weekly date and picked Chicken and the Egg because of many favorable reviews, as well as the online menu. It exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to go back. The food was amazing and just the right amount, and you can't beat the prices. Our server was helpful and attentive. Totally recommend!

This is a great brunch spot! The menu offers traditional options as well as dishes with a more modern spin. The cocktail list is excellent. The food is always fast and fresh, and service is fantastic every time. It is very kid friendly, and great for groups as well. Definitely need a reservation as it is always packed on the weekends! We dine here often and have never been disappointed. It's a favorite place to take our out of town guests too!

I've now visited this restaurant twice. First time for Brunch with the girls. Second time with hubby and the grandkids. I got the French toast for brunch. It was delicious. When I went for dinner I got the chicken and waffles. It was tasty too! The coating on the chicken was a bit sweet but I still thought it was good. The service was outstanding. Unfortunately, my husband didn't think it was anything special but I really like the place so I plan to go back.

CATFISH...if you love it get it here! Served griddled or fried, huge ,juicy, flaky fillet.
Paired with their slow braised greens and black-eyed peas...mmmmmm! Can be found on both blue plate lunch and dinner menu. Their hanger steak is outstanding also for dinner. This is one of my favorite go to places . Give it a shot, it might become one of yours. BEST SUNDAY BRUNCH IN MARIETTA.

I've been here for brunch many times (which is fantastic!) but this was our first dinnet there. We were not disappointed. The food was beyond amazing and my husband couldn't have asked for a better birthday dinner. In fact our friends, who live almost 2 hours away were debating how and when to make a special trip back to go again!

It was some of the best food I have ever eaten. I had the Crab Cake Benedict and it was delicious! The food was a huge hit with my step-children. They both are insisting we come back for their birthdays. It was Father's Day and with the reservation we were seated right away. Service was outstanding as well! Highly recommend this place!
