Delicious!!! The poutine is always a hit! Great mimosas as always. Not bottomless anymore but your drink about the same now that they are 2.50. The service was so awesome Nick was amazing! So friendly and knowledgeable. Love this neighborhood gem of a place. Will keep coming back of course!

Chicken and the Egg is one of our favorite restaurants. There is enough space between tables so you can talk to each other without feeling conspicuous, and the menu selections are a nice mix of traditional comfort foods with on-trend elements and generous portions. Service is always friendly and fast.

Valentines Day dinner date. We enjoyed the shortened menu. Chicken was delicious and served with the two sides is how I wish it was on the main menu. NY strip cooked perfectly. Glad we chose C&E for this night. All around great time.

I made reservations over a month ago for 10 women. One week before the reservation I added 4 more ladies. We all arrived on time and ready to sit. We waited 25 minutes only to be escorted to two separate tables that were completely away from each other. We asked the hostess to please move the tables together. Rather than assist she looked at us like we were crazy. We ended up moving the tables ourselves because they were too incompetent to figure it out.
Our server Karidan was fantastic. She handled us wonderfully.
Around 3:15 we asked for another round of bottomless mimosas that the majority had ordered. We were told last call had already happened. We noticed that there were about 13 mimosas sitting on the bar. We asked if we could have those. They said no and proceeded to dump all of them in the sink in front of us.
This will be the last time they will ever get my business. I was disgusted by the way we were treated. We were also told a manager was too busy to speak with us. I'll be posting this same review on all social media

This was my second visit for brunch and the food was fairly good. The homemade donuts were too dried out and the icing on the chocolate tasted like canned icing. I will not purchase them again! My biggest complaint is that it is TOO NOISY!!! The four of us could barely hear each other so it was a strain to carry on a conversation and made for a less pleasant experience. Our server was excellent! I will be back to give it one more try, but not in the near future.

Chicken and the Egg delivers again - we had our favorites - shrimp and grits and fried chicken. Honeysuckle fizz is my new favorite cocktail. Our waitress provided the perfect combination of attentiveness and allowing us great conversation without interruption. We never go wrong when we have a fun date night with friends here! Worth the drive "out west"!!

Took the family for dinner. We have been a couple of times and the food is always delicious. Only disappointment was the chocolate cake. Why would you change to that horrible cake when you had the huge chocolate cake before? Not even close to being the same. Meals were very good as usual. Service is always "MEH". Host was a young kid who couldn't be bothered to speak to us during the walk to the table and didn't know better than to seat a family with an 8 year old in the bar area. Server was nice but lacked personality, didn't tell us about any specials or recommend anything. Took the order, delivered it, checked back and ran. A monkey could do that. Train your servers and host better and this place becomes one of the best.

Delicious dinner with great service! The burger is so flavorful and I highly recommend it. Also, the short rib entree and banana cheesecake were big hits at our table. We love to eat here because it is a relaxed setting with quality food and service.

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and it was just as great as the first time. When the second experience is fantastic then you know the first one wasn't a fluke. Same way if the first one was a miss then you give it a second shot. Love this place and the staff are excellent.

I love The Chicken and The Egg. The food and drinks are wonderful, but it is so loud! It's hard to make conversation with the person across the table from you. Regardless, the service is awesome and overall it's hard to beat.

I go here on average once a month. Unfortunately, yesterday's experience was probably the worst I've had. Two out of our four meals were wrong, all of the bills were wrong and the waiter did not seem to know the menu well when we asked questions about sides, substitutions and adding on items. I'll be back, but I hope the service is better next time.

I've been to The Chicken and the Egg for dinner several times, but this was my first brunch experience. We made a reservation and were seated right away, the starters came out promptly and the meals were served after ample time was provided for the starters. Everything was perfect and I will definitely be back!

This was our second trip to the restaurant. Our first trip was pretty good. Good enough to when one of our very few "date nights," was again available, we decided to return. This time, our experience was, at best, sub-par. The food was far below the standard I would expect, and not nearly the quality to fit the excellent ambiance. The ambiance is great. The chef seems to have some really good ideas on dish strategy. That said, the taste of our meals was so mediocre, that neither my wife nor myself ate very little. Service was "ok." Not very attuned to the fact we weren't eating almost any of our meals.
Was pretty disappointing, and I can't say that we will ever return, particularly for a chance as few and far between as the opportunity to just be together without kids. There was a large party in the private dining room, and maybe that contributed to some of the sub-standard meal prep. The Bayou pasta was well below what I expected. A decent amount of shrimp (4-5), ONE tiny sliver of chicken, and 6-8 small pieces of sausage. In the end, the sauce killed it. Basically it just tasted like butter that had been dumped out of a skillet they had roasted the andouille. The sauce just gave the whole dish an overtly andouille taste, that was not good at all.
My wife's dish, Country Fried Steak, was dry, and not at all up to the level I would have anticipated for a restaurant that promotes quality food. The portions were HUGE (compliment), but she ate about 10% of her dinner, and decided that it just didn't taste good.
Funny sidenote: As big as the Country Fried Steak dinner was (humongous), the apple cobbler she ordered for desert was TINY. Also to that point, the apple cobbler didn't taste fresh, and she ate two bites, and decided it was also not great.
We generally are not restaurant critics, but hopefully the mgmt will take this as constructive criticism. Also would have been nice to have some nightly specials... There were none

I really like this place and will be back again but the one thing is the reservation really doesn't matter for them. We didn't wait for long time but specifically requested a booth. She put us not in the booth but other people in booth without reservation at the same time with us. Then she was trying not to even look at us or say something. Kind of rude! However the service was great!

We love this place! Food is always great and menu has lots to choose from. Great spot for southern classics and american cuisine. Weeknight specials offer great value and it's the best place in Marietta for Sunday Brunch. This is always at the top of our list when looking to get together with friends or family. Service is consistently good and everyone is friendly. Can't say enough good things!
