Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews
We went for my Mother's Day dinner and I was expecting the full regular menu only to be told they were only serving brunch food all day. I was very disappointed bc I was expecting to be able to order their dinner menu as I had already had a big breakfast that day. I would recommend in the future offering both menus or when they call to confirm the reservation letting people know that it's a brunch only menu. I was very disappointed especially on Mother's Day. I had been looking forward to the dinner menu for a long time
This is our family's go-to for all occasions. Staff is friendly from the door to the floor! The poutine is my weakness, but my sons drool over the country fried steak which is hand pounded and perfectly breaded, not to mention the size of their faces! We had a party of 8 and we're seated comfortably, no squishing at all. I love Chicken and the Egg!
This was my first time at Chicken and the egg but it won't be my last. We dined here for Mother's Day brunch and everything was amazing! The food, the service, and the ambience. It's incredibly easy to get to - just make sure to snag a reservation ahead of time. This neighborhood gem gets pretty packed- for good reason!
They did not have enough staffing and although our service staff were very nice, it took a long time to get our meals, the orders were not entirely correct and they were not very impressive. Our wait staff went out of their way to make it right, but the whole experience was not not as good as it could have been.
We decided to finally try The chicken and the egg after nearing a relative brag about the food. The food was definitely great. We had made a reservation so the wait was minimal. The only issue we had was tthe service. Our waitress seemed to be a but overwhelmed with the amount of tabkes she had. It took 10 minutes or more just to get some butter for my biscuit (which they do not offer butter and jelly when the food is brought, as Sunday brunch is mostly breakfast foods). But we are going back tonight for a weekday dinner. Maybe it won't be as bbusy as aa sunday brunch.
We were there for a small baby shower. The staff took excellent care of us and our server paced the meal perfectly and was present without being obtrusive. It was the perfect venue for a small gathering like that. The food was wonderful and the service was stellar.
Had a wonderful time. My waiter Zach was outstanding. He was attentive, courteous and friendly. Our food was delicious. The alcoholic drinks were tasty and potent but very small. A $13 drink had three swallows worth of libation. Still, I had two $13 drinks, and a delicious entree called poutine. My husband had the meatloaf and he thought it was the very best meatloaf he'd ever had, aside from my home cooked meatloaf of course. :) We would definitely go again. I'm 100% sure we will visit in the near future, because their breakfast and brunch can't be beat. They have $3 mimosas and $4 bellinis. You can't find great food and reasonable drinks just anywhere, so if you plan to visit, I recommend you have breakfast or brunch here. They don't serve alcohol until 12:30 on Sundays however, per state law.
Very pleasant as always. I was asked if I mind switching as they had a large group coming and needed my seat. I switched to the bar. It was unfortunate experience at the bar. I needed napkins and utensils but had to stop another server to get them because the waiters at the bar completely ignored me. They were inattentive and never asked if I needed anything until after the mgr came by to check on me. By then I just wanted my check so I could leave. This may be an isolated event because I eat there twice a week and never have any issues. Other times, they are exceptional in the customer service area. Of course, the food was great as always. No complaint there.
My family dined at the start of dinner service and were met with warm smiles by the staff. The restaurant was bright, spacious and free of clutter. The food came on time and was delicious down to the last bite. Even my kids cleaned their plates which is not normal for them. Definitely worth a return visit.
The server was very rude towards us. He said something a long the lines of he would kick us out but he can't to another group of people who were dining. He said this because we were in the restaurant towards the time of them closing and the other tables was there too. I thought that was very rude
1st time visiting. My husband and I went after church for brunch. Most of the meals on brunch menu has eggs and I don't like eggs but I was able to finds something that didn't. Everything was great. It was storming terribly and on the way out we were given a complimentary umbrella. I thought that top everything. Yes we plan on going again to try out the dinner menu.
Chicken and the Egg is a staple restaurant for me and my friends. Although bottomless mimosas are no longer available, at $2.50 each, it's still a great value for a Saturday or Sunday brunch. The traditional southern menu is only enhanced by being locally sourced and I've never eaten a bad meal here. Service can sometimes be spotty depending on how busy it is, and I'd definitely recommend ALWAYS making a reservation regardless.
20 minute wait with reservations for a party of 3 at 11:45am. Waited for 10 minutes for coffee. Ordered the worst blood Mary's we have ever had. They tasted like mustard. The food was average to above average. The snuckerdoodle French toast was not what we thought it would be or what it could be. Other 3 entree where pretty good. The waitress was very nice, but had far to many custimers for her ability.
This is my second time I have been here and once again ordered chicken and waffles and the chicken had to be sent back due to being undercooked. The waffles get harder the longer they sit on your plate. While the flavors are good it's disappointing with the chicken issues I had again. I will go back but order something different. Sierra our server is awesome! Both times I have been fortunate to have her and glad we had her! She is very attentive and helpful!
This is a favorite restaurant when in Marietta, wanting non-ethnic fare & a place where I can hear our table's conversation clearly. I also love that I don't have to fight for a parking space like I do when I choose a restaurant on the Square. My waiters here have always been down to earth and delightful.
We have had brunch at Chicken and the Egg a few times and always enjoyed it. It's a good idea to get reservations, because it can get busy on the weekend. This time, we went there for Easter brunch. My daughter loves their sausage, and my son loves their benedicts. Keep in mind that they do not serve alcohol until 12:30, so if you want a bloody mary or a mimosa with your brunch make your plans accordingly. Despite being very busy, our server was totally on top of things and we had a great meal.
