Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews

Went for the first time for their Thanksgiving special. It was great, and was an interestingly different take on standard (smoked). Service was at least Very Good, even though you could tell the press of the Thanksgiving crowd was affecting them a bit.

How incredibly disappointing. We went for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a set menu of just a few items. Nothing arrived at the table warm. There's nothing like cold gravy over some thin slices of deli-style smoked turkey. Then the pecan pie was sweetened by dark molasses, giving it a bitter taste. Nothing subtle about any flavors. Never again.

My husband and I went here for Thanksgiving- and the restaurant had a special, limited holiday menu. Overall, the food was very good. The standouts were the cornbread stuffing, mac and cheese and ham. Neither my husband nor l liked the turkey. It was smoked, and had such a strong, smokey flavor you could not even taste the meat. I'd like to try the location again on a non-holiday.

It's a bit unfair for me to review this restaurant, since it was on Thanksgiving Day, and there was a limited menu, but you asked. I give them points alone for even being open on Thanksgiving. They were quite busy, and they handled to volume very professionally. The atmosphere was pleasant. The food was good, but I have a hard time saying that anything was memorable as far as the food goes. Still, I refer to my first point, they were open.
I will try to return on a normal business night.

We have gone to Chicken and Egg for the past 3 years for Thanksgiving but this year we were disappointed with the meal. While the service was quick, the smoked turkey breast tasted processed. The cornbread dressing was gummy. Sides were not really hot and just plopped on the plate. The pecan pie had good flavor but was soft and a sliver.
The restaurant does have a consistently good weekind brunch.

What a disappointment!! The food was terrible. My mashed potatoes were lukewarm, the turkey was over smoked, the green bean casserole was "swimming" in soup and the cornbread dressing was hard as a rock. I felt like it was a rip off for $27.00. I have eaten dinner there and it was fine, but Thanksgiving dinner was a disaster. Not sure why - maybe they weren't prepared for such a large crowd.

Took my mom for Thanksgiving, loved most all the food. It was easy to find and get in and out (my mom is disabled). The menu choices were good. Don't know what was up with those rolls, though. They were very bland next to all the lovely farm-fresh home-cooked dishes.

Our family generally enjoys cooking for holidays; however, my father passed away in September, so we were looking for something fun and different for our Thanksgiving meal together. Adorable atmosphere. This menu was specifically for Thanksgiving, so it was a selection of two entrees, about five vegetables (all starch except green beans, which were in a mushroom soup casserole) and three desserts, not hard to make absolutely delicious. My mashed potatoes were very good. Beyond that, NO. Turkey was VERY smoky, dressing was arguably the worst I've ever had, heavy laden with sage, and I like a little sage in my dressing. My mother's serving was so brown that she couldn't even cut through it, and asked for a fresh serving. The corn and green beans were not special at all and tasted like "prefab". There was approximately one tablespoon of gravy barely visible on the turkey. Our table was directly in front of the door, so my daughter and I were blinded by the sun throughout our meal. Server did well getting the food out, which is great since the restaurant was completely full. Honestly, I can't believe any chef would be proud to serve that meal to the masses, especially on Thanksgiving. It left us with the thought of "Well, other than the food, we had a great Thanksgiving!" Which we did.....we were thankful to be together, just very disappointed in our meal choice.

Zumindest einmal sollte man in den USA Eggs Benedict essen. Ich habe heute mir das heute zum Sonntagsbrunch gegönnt. Im "Chicken and the Egg", einem netten Restaurant mit lokaler Farm to Table Küche. Es hat köstlich geschmeckt, die Bedienung war super freundlich. Woran ich mich leider nie gewöhnen werde, dass einem, kaum dass man die Gabel abgelegt hat, die Rechnung auf den Tisch gelegt wird... ich hatte so leider keine Chance auf einen 2. Kaffee oder ein Dessert. Das ist leider total ungemütlich! 🇺🇸🍳☕️ At least once during a visit to the USA everybody should eat Eggs Benedict. I treated myself today for Sunday brunch a visit to the " Chicken and the Egg". A nice restaurant with local farm to table cuisine. It was delicious. The service was very friendly. The only thing that I will never get used to, is that you get the bill, right after you laid down your fork. I didn't even have the chance to order a 2nd coffee or dessert. This is very uncomfortable!

I have a lot of food allergies and I am also gluten sensitive. I wish there were a few more gluten free options. I went with an omelet to be on the safe side but our waiter was not well versed in what could be made gluten free. Other than that, he was very attentive!

Overall it was a good experience. I'm not hard to impress, and it's very hard to mess up breakfast. I walked in and was immediately greeted by the host who recognized my reservation and seated us quickly. We were greeted by the waitress who was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
Food: I had the French toast and fried chicken. The food was good. Not the best I've had but good. The butter for the toast was different but very good; the chicken was moist and well seasoned. My girlfriend, it was her birthday, had the crab/crawfish omelette and she loved it. It came with a home style biscuit and bacon. I tasted it and did not care for the dish but I'm not a seafood kind of guy. We also had the mimosas or shall I say bottomless mimosas. Which isn't a bad deal for $10.
Ambiance is more so modern country style, dim lighting, open space. The place is huge inside.
Overall, we had a nice brunch and would definitely go back. Staff was very friendly and made the experience worth while.

While the food was good it was impossible to talk at the table due to the excessive ambient noise from other customers. They seriously need to sound dampen the environment to make it more enjoyable. Highly recommend to make a reservation if you want brunch table.

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.
