Chicken and the Egg Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I enjoyed our breakfast at the Chicken and Egg. The breakfast poutine is my favorite with a good cup of coffee and a glass of fresh orange juice. We have tried many of the breakfast places ITP and OTP, this one is definitely worth the drive and is our favorite.
Amazing!! Make it your next stop. For reals. My husband and I drove 30 minutes to eat here based on reviews. Worth every mile....we'll be back and soon. Great decor and ambiance...we got there pretty early for dinner so not at all crowded. Our server (Amanda?) was excellent. We had the fish dip that rocked and the beet/arugula salad. Salad was only thing we didn't love - there was some spice in there that didn't jive with the blue cheese and apple...maybe cumin? Whatever - we still ate every last stinkin' bite so clearly not complaining. My husband had THE BEST shrimp and grits we have ever had anywhere and trust me, we've ordered a few! I had the short ribs which were also out of this world. Great portions - could not finish mine so the hubs polished it off. OH! They also give you a basked of these super tasty little yeast rolls with some sweet butter something to slather on (as if it was needed!). And HOMEMADE banana pudding for dessert. And prices where unreal. I kinda wish they'd charge more - how can they stay open?? Seriously - they were TOO reasonable. Again, not complaining. GO. Hear they have outstanding brunch too but that it gets totally packed out. Not a fan of that but we may brave the masses. Thanks so much Chicken & Egg. We love ya'll!
I have been to this restaurant a handful of times. It was very enjoyable to bring my sister (who was visiting), especially because of the Southern Cuisine. Each time I have gone, the staff are most friendly and knowledgeable. During part of the year, they have a "two for $25" special on Thursdays which cannot be beat! Sunday brunch is quite crowded, so the noise level is high. I prefer to go during the week. Overall, a great spot!
We've been here mutiple times, esp. for brunch. We have always enjoyed it but our last visit was a disapointment. Our server was friendly and cheerful but never once did anyone refill our water glasses, I Shared my water with the woman we invited for brunch, and cocktails and food took much longer than usual to come. At one point we were told it was a slow computer. What should have been a pleasant, one hour, brunch took over two hours. I hope this isn't a new normal.
This farm to table restaurant is a joy to visit... the decor gives a peaceful vibe, the food is fresh and local and prepared well, the service was friendly, knowledgeable and quick, but not rushed... the food was so good. Had brunch and the breakfast poutine was so delicious and the fried green tomatoes with pimento fondue and tomato jam... let me die a happy woman now... had their seasonal watermelon lemonade and it was fantastic... will be back, save me a table!!
Seldom do you find a place where is all comes together. This is the place. Great atmosphere. Wonderful food. Fanominal service.
We were there for a birthday celebration with a large party. The staff was super attendant. My niece is Vegan. They went as far as modifing their dishes to meet her needs. They even created an off the menu salad dressing just for her.
Just can't say enough!!!
We were excited to try the double stack burger with comeback sauce, but one bite changed that! Totally disappointed that a "farmstead fare" place uses processed American cheese slices on the burger. Ruined the whole experience and our appetites. Server even never came by to check on us after our food was delivered, despite working nearby cleaning other tables.
This is our third visit and the last two have been really disappointing.
I was really disappointed in the food. I got the fried chicken and biscuits and it was lacking flavor. My side of eggs had no seasoning. Same with the hash brown casserole. My mom got the eggs Benedict and she said the English muffins tasted stale and had a chemical taste to them. There are so many better options for brunch in Atlanta. Honestly, even chick fil a makes a better chicken biscuit. The only plus was friendly service. I should have known when I reserved a table for Saturday brunch at the last minute and the restaurant was only half full.
We dined at the restaurant because it was Father's Day and we were doing something special for my husband. My son was really excited about the chicken and waffles and I had the chicken and french toast. The food was enjoyable and we look forward to using OpenTable again to book reservations.
Made a reservation and were seated on time on a busy Sunday morning, but waited forever to have someone come to our table. Despite lots of staff being visible, service and kitchen were both VERY slow. Food was good, but by the time it arrived poor service had already ruined the experience. Waitress was very polite and knowledgeable we just couldn't ever seem to find her.
We've eaten here every 2-3 months, in the last 2 years. We live 45 miles away. Usually it's very good food, the service always seems to be lacking some, but this visit was a huge disappointment. My husband who is diabetic, sugar was low, so we asked for orange juice to help bring it up, in 25 years we've never had a restaurant charge us for it. They weren't busy, yet it still took over 30 minutes to get our food and it was cold. Talking with our server didn't yield any results other than, oh I'm sorry. Our meal was $80 for 4 and it was a waste of money and time. Not sure when or if we'll return.
The restaurant was only about 10-15% full. After being promptly seated we waited 10 minutes to be acknowledged and we gave our drink orders. After 10 more minutes our drinks finally arrived. There was one group of 8 and they were clearly the focus of the waitstaff. At that point we decided this was not going to work, we got our check, paid it and left.
Clearly, any restaurant at 6PM on a Friday that is fully staffed and not attentive to the few patrons in the establishment is not going to provide a positive experience.
