Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews
This was my second visit to the restaurant (a first for my friends) and it wasn't a great experience like my first visit. To start they seated us at a table that hadn't been wiped off and was covered in pancake syrup. It took almost 30 minutes for 3 mimosas each time we ordered. All 3 of us ordered the seafood omelet and comes out as one huge flat egg with all the toppings in the middle. It not folded like an omelet and it didn't include any melted cheese. Two of us ordered turkey sausage but they gave my friend pork, which she doesn't eat. I was really disappointed after raving to them about how great my experience was on my first visit.
We live near the restaurant so it is an easy trip for Sunday Brunch. We made a reservation the evening before. The food is good and filling. I have no complaints about that. We were sitting at a table near the exit on a cold day and there was a glare from the sun, every time someone left and they held the door open we had an arctic blast. I should have asked for another table. The Service was another problem. We ordered bloody marys and mimosas and an appetizer of fried green tomatoes. Then we ordered entrees. The green tomatoes never came, the drinks came as the entrees were being served. I had to ask for ketchup twice - I like it on my potatoes. I have had the entree served before the drinks here before. They seem to want you served and gone fairly quickly. No time for drinking cocktails, no time for more than one. We will go back because it’s close and the food is good. The Service seems disjointed.
We visited on Sunday. The visit started off a little sketchy because the hostess seated us at an obviously dirty table and did not offer to clean it. When we asked for it to be cleaned she swiped the salt off the table with a paper towel. We had to insist that she clean it with spray and a wet cloth. Fortunately. Roxanne our server was awesome and the food was good as well. I had chicken and waffles and my husband had Bubba's Benedict. The ambience and decor is lovely.
Room was a bit cool, but it was really cold outside and the exit door located in the main dining room was being used. Probably would have been a good night to encourage diners to use the main/front door.
Food was great! We got the Charred Brussels Sprouts as an appetizer. Bravo! They were wonderful. I suspect we could have eaten a plate full of them. I got the Bayou Pasta; the dish was a tasty, good sized portion. Served hot, which I loved. My wife got the shrimp and grits which she enjoyed, but remarked was bit spicy for her taste. My brother and his wife enjoyed the Country Fried Steak; they scraped their plates clean so it must have been good. My sister, the hippie dippie vegtranarian from the 60's, had the Beet Salad and a bowl of the Mushroom Soup, which she enjoyed. Not too awful busy, we were able to enjoy each others company, and trade war stories about how we, as a family, are supporting the American medical welfare system for doctors. We were not rushed and just had a great evening. We will be back!
Happy to find Chicken and the Egg open for New Years Day brunch! We made a reservation and were immediately seated. Staff gave us good attention. Menu was long and varied to suit our tastes. Had a great kids menu as well. We were a group of five celebrating the new year.
My husband and I had dinner reservations for New Year’s Eve and my husband ordered prime rib which came with beans and mashed potatoes. He counted 5 beans on his plate and the amount of potatoes was sad. He was still hungry. I ordered the grouper which was okay but nothing worth 25 bucks. I usually don’t do reviews I just don’t return if I have a bad experience but this was a night out without our daughter and we spent with tip 90 some bucks. Our waitress was all over the place and forgot to bring us rolls after being asked twice. So we left it alone. My husband asked for a coke and never got it as well. Just a bad experience and upsetting for such a pretty restaurant in Mariett.
Everything was delicious. My husband orders the fried chicken and was disappointed in the Mac and cheese and dry breast. But everyone else was thrilled with their food. The scallops and Brussels sprouts were to die for. The cocktails were strong and delicious. We were very pleased with our Christmas Eve dinner here!
Our dinner was very tasty - our server was friendly, but forgetful. My husband asked for some condiments to go with his meal and those never arrived until after he was already finished. At this price point, we do expect a higher level of service. Also, water glasses went empty with no offers of refills and the restaurant was not that busy
When I made the reservation I noted that we wanted a booth and that it was for my sons birthday. When I checked in and gave my name for the reservation they asked me if I wanted a booth or a table.
The waiter was a bit awkward. Our main course was served while we were still eating our salads to name one issue.
The food was great.
I would like to see healthier options such as a main course salad and more options for non fried foods, perhaps another fish options with more vegetables.
Lovely restaurant and really nice people! Food was delicious, everyone was friendly and service was great. The server and kitchen accommodated our special request. The restaurant supports local agricultural producers and is a Georgia Organics Member. It's a great place to eat!
The Chicken and the Egg was a bit heavy handed with the salt shaker this time around, but I wouldn't let that stop you. The Wild Boar Meatballs were by far the table favorite, however the Poutine the most disappointing since our last experience. Overall, everyone enjoyed their dining experience and won't let these couple of items turn us away in the future. Very good Southern fare!
