I went for brunch, and it was great! Minus the distance, because I live in Stone Mountain, it was worth it. The bottomless mimosas are EVERYTHING!!!
Southern Cuisine At Its Best
I can not rave about this restaurant enough. The food is incredible. From the pimento cheese and fried green tomatoes to the catfish and meatloaf, they have the best truly southern food in the area. The fact that it is farm to table makes it even better. Everything is always fresh and scrumptious. The restaurant does tend to get a little loud during brunch times but that is just a testament to their wonderful food.

Mother's Day Brunch
Six of us went for Mother's Day Brunch and were not disappointed. From the bottomless mimosas to the delicious food, it was a great experience. Service was a bit sluggish but to be expected on a busy holiday. Will return!
Give this neighborhood gem a try
Had brunch with my daughter, a friend and her daughter. Made reservations in March for Mother's day. Arrived around 12:25 and still waited about 15 minutes. We were seated in a corner booth, loved that! The menu had a nice variety and the restaurant is open and airy. My one concern was 3 of us ordered bottomless Mimosas. We receive the first round. The server came back with another round when we were about finished and didn't offer anymore, she brought the check. It would have been nice for her to check back more frequently and refill our glasses, otherwise what's the point of bottomless?
Mother's Day Brunch
Brought My mom and Aunt here for Mother's day brunch and once again the food was amazing! They loved it, it was their first time being here and they both said the will come back! Wonderful place for Brunch!!!!!
Great place for breakfast
If you're looking for a breakfast/brunch location, you can't go wrong with Chicken and the Egg. Our party of 5 enjoyed everything we ordered. Our reservation time on Mother's Day was honored perfectly and the service was good. Besides the food being very good, it came out of the kitchen very fast. The biscuits and gravy are particularly good - make sure to choose something that comes with one. I would definitely eat here again. Next time, will try it for dinner.
EARLY MOTHER'S DAY DINNER
Decided on Chicken & the Egg for an early Mother's Day dinner, knowing that the restaurant (like most) would probably have a set menu on Saturday & Sunday, which we cannot stand. We have dined here before and both food & service were very good. This time around we were a bit disappointed with the service piece of it while impressed with the food. Upon arriving we were greeted by very young hosts & hostesses. While polite they lacked a certain sophistication that I would expect for a restaurant of this nature. Our server was truly emotionless and lacking in personality that we have had in a while. It wasn't that he wasn't nice but he was not very informative or social. When I asked about the Wild Boar he told us it was very good then said that he never had it but his other guests said it was good. Why does a server not know how something tastes? Shouldn't they be made to try the foods so that they can explain it? We also felt rushed through the dinner. Still working on appetizers when salads came and then immediately entrees came without barely a breath in between. As I said, food was excellent! I do recommend you have more of children's menu that isn't just typical children fare. Some people want their kids to eat a variety and diverse menu. I would have liked to give a smaller portion of some of your other great meals (I know this is atypical from what most parents get their kids). In closing, my suggestion is to improve on training service staff to be personable, time food better and know the menu.
Meeting a friend for an early dinner, we were greeted politely and seated promptly. I was dining with a cast on my hand after recent surgery and the wait staff was able to make dinner recommendations based on knowledge of offerings that would be easy handled. I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was amazing! Staff was attentive but didn't hover. Very nice experience close to the Square.
The food was excellent. The service and seating with a reservation was fabulous. Our only complaint is that our server had something in his nostril that we thought might fall in our food.

The service was great, and the chicken and biscuits were really good. We tried them for the first time at the Taste of Marietta festival, and they were hands down our favorite of the day.
The biscuits are to die for!
Our waitress was wonderful and brought us biscuits to enjoy while waiting on our meal and they were absolutely amazing! I had the fried chicken and waffles and thoroughly enjoyed both. We had a wonderful brunch!
Always a great time!
We go The C & E on Fridays after a long work week. The service is always fantastic. They allow us to relax and feel at home. The food is very good. I've tried most things on the menu. Their appetizers are really good. Black Eyed Pea Hummus is amazing! The menu looks like it just got updated today, so a few things are new. Can't wait to go back and try some new stuff! The Skillet Cookie is very good too!
We have eaten at Chicken & The Egg on several occasions and have always enjoyed it. Our last visit, the chicken was dry/lukewarm, like it had been cooked hours earlier and kept under a warmer and several people in our party ordered the double burger that you could ring grease out of. Everyone had water to drink and the bill was over $50 for 4 people. For $50 I would like to be able to say that we enjoyed our meal.

Excellent brunch! We enjoyed an early (9:45) family brunch on a Sunday morning. The food was out quickly and we were on our way in 45 minutes. The fried chicken and biscuits entree was delicious and the Blue Plate is the perfect traditional southern breakfast. Kids have a good selection and who doesn't love a grilled cheese to start the day!?! Coffee was great! Another wonderful meal!
Great restaurant in W. Marietta.
The food was great. You have to try the pork quesadilla. We went on a Saturday night. There wasn't a wait. People in the area obviously don't know of this hidden gem in their community. The menu changes seasonally. I can't wait to try the items on the summer menu. I will definitely be going back again.

Excellent Food, Service, and Ambiance. My first time there and a truly enjoyable experience! Definitely cost efficient and plenty for your dollar!
Mom's Bday was a hit!
Mom decided she wanted to do a brunch instead of a birthday dinner this year. I was secretly hoping she'd pick this place, and she did! As always the staff is warm and welcoming, the food is delicious and the mimosas were great! We will definitely be returning in the near future. The black-eyed pea hummus and the breakfast poutine are always two of my favorites!
Comfort Food Near Home
Our dinner experiences at Chicken and the Egg are consistently good, and this visit with visiting family members was no different.
Good food in a great atmosphere for casual dining. Service is always top-notch and friendly.
I've been wanting to try Chicken and the Egg out and finally had the opportunity to do so. The food was amazing. Perfect portions for the money. And the $10 bottomless mimosas were great!! The atmosphere was perfect. We used open table to make reservation and really didn't have to wait long for Sunday afternoon. Our server had a great sense of humor and was patient with us while we sipped our mimosas. There was separate dining room for large parties. Plenty of bar seating as well. I highly recommend.

The Saturday Brunch menu is amazing! And the $10 bottomless mimosas is a bonus!
I decided to try this place for the first time on my birthday with a group of people and they did not disappoint! Not only was the food delicious but the bottomless Mimosas were excellent and not watered down like some places do. I always brunch for my birthday and have high expectations from over the years and Chicken and the Egg meet every single one. Our server was fabulous, the food was delicious and the host and managers were wonderfully accommodating when I had three more people than my reservation was originally booked for. This is definitely going to be added to my list of favorite brunch spots. AMAZING!
Another Great Meal Experience
Enjoyed another fine meal. Short rib was tender and delicious that's why it's a sure choice. Wife had NC catfish meal for the first time and would definitely get again; generous portion cooked (fried) perfectly. Service was exceptional largely due to our waiter Hurley. So attentive but not hovering so we couldn't enjoy. One of our go-to places to dine!
We've been there 4 times now, and every time we go we have had a different server. Each time, they are WELL informed about their menu and products. They know their menu so they can answer any questions you might have. It's a very nice change from so many restaurants where you ask a question about an item on the menu and the server just looks at you and says 'I don't know', but they don't want to even find out. The Chicken and the Egg is great! Their appetizers are amazing and the Skillet Cooking with ice cream is the BEST!!

Ordered the Challah French toast. Sounded great, but it appeared to be made with regular bread the French toast itself was just warm..not like it just came off the grill. The combination cinnamon cream cheese and healthy portion of marmalade on top made for a topping "soup" that really didn't work, and that I think probably contributed to the not so warm French toast. My wife's "lite" egg white and spinach plate included a heavily buttered English muffin. That said, the service was very good and we will give this restaurant another try at some point.
Great food at great prices. Our go to in Marietta.

I am really happy to have a farm to table restaurant in our neighborhood. The brunch is awesome! Who doesn't love a mimosa? The food is really good, but OK Café fried chicken was better the other night.

We loved the flash fried oysters and charred Brussel sprouts as appetizers. The oysters were very light and crispy and the Brussel sprouts had great flavor. The Fried chicken was excellent as were the accompanying greens. Next time we'll skip the specialty cocktails and go for the tried and true. Charming atmosphere with little noise. Great to be able to comfortably carry on a conversation. Wonderful menu with many tempting choices.

Awesome for Sunday brunch! What a great menu. If you can't find something you like then you should never eat out ever again.
Chosen for an early dinner in proximity to the Marietta Square. Fabulous "healthy home cooking" ... using the term "healthy" in reference to fresh, whole foods. Located in a strip mall, but not at all strip-mallish inside. Contemporary, yet comfortable interior. Fried green tomato appetizer and Black Eyed Pea hummus appetizer were great, well seasoned, with good remoulade and tomato jam accompaniments, respectively. Husband ordered the buttermilk fried chicken with mashed and braised collards. Neither of us have EVER had collards and this was an unexpected, nice introduction. I had Georgia trout over a sweet potato hash with ham and apples; and roasted brussels sprouts that were cooked so that they were just barely softened. Everything beautifully seasoned. Server had a little difficulty with the wine cork, which provided a bit of humor to start off the evening ... but this was her only downfall!

Menu Very Interesting ...
We wanted to try something different on way home from airport for a mid morning breakfast so we chose it based on menu & reviews solely! Menu looked great; a lot of flavors with great options. My husband had the poutine which he ate at record pace; said it was very good but thyme flavor overpowering and would've preferred something other than chicken. We r from Canada so r familiar with great poutine. I had chicken fried steak w/gravy on the side so I expected it a tad dry but was seriously over cooked; the hash browns & eggs were very tasty and biscuit average. To end, because my husband cannot resist, he ordered the house made donuts; they were not like any donut we've tried. They were neither yeast or cake but kind of gooey then dry and zero flavor. 3 of them stuck to a plate covered with different toppings; I don't recommend them. Service was excellent all around and it's a nice brunch type atmosphere!
Chicken and the Egg
Being in the US Navy we travel all over. My wife and I keep outstanding restaurants we visit in our hearts and memories. Chicken and the Egg offered a classic southern breakfast with a modern twist. A true gourmet meal and designer farmhouse atmosphere. We will be back...
