    I appreciate the attention paid to providing us with a table that was very accessible for my wife and her wheelchair. The staff was extremely helpful. The food was just wonderful. The only comment I have that is not positive is the food for the brunch displayed on the bar was not visible by my wife in the wheel chair.

    We enjoyed another exceptional brunch at Chequers. Chequers always exceeds our expectations. There is a huge selection of food from breakfast to lunch and food is always served at the correct temperature and is always flavorful. Dinners are also cooked to perfection. Brantley and Victoria are always happy to accommodate our nutritional requests without sacrificing flavor. We see repeat customers every Sunday, which shows how much care is put into making a lovely brunch or dinner. Guests feel like family and enjoying one another as well as the food. There is so much variety in entrees, fruits, vegetables and desserts that you will never tire of this brunch buffet. They serve seafood, beef chicken, desserts and breakfast foods.

    The new location for Chequers in Marietta is wonderful and there are an abundance of parking spaces available in this large lot. Our dinner was superb from the delicious, fresh and hot rolls to the exquisitely crafted dessert. We really like the new homemade ice creams and every one we have tried has been a winner thus far. We also had the most delicious, moist and yummy chocolate cake, which my husband and I shared(fought over!). I think it is a flourless chocolate cake, but the consistency is like a chocolate mousse that just melts in your mouth. We took our favorite server's(Bernie) recommendation and tried the new bourbon glazed salmon cooked on a thin slice of maple wood and it was wonderful!

    I began dining at there original location when I started traveling here in 1991 and enjoyed eating there quite often. My wife and wanted to try the new location for the first time since they moved to Marietta and was very satisfied. It had a very nice decor, and was surprisingly quiet in the dinning room. The waitress was very friendly and knows her job. The grilled Ahi Tuna was perfectly cooked and made a great meal. The portion was larger than I could finish; perhaps I shouldn't have eaten the second biscuit. I noticed the huge bar and that it was full, so I guess it is quite popular. I'd recommend them to anyone.

    I scheduled my appointment early because it was my Mother and Wife's Birthday Brunch. I asked in the Special A note section to please do something special to help celebrate Their Birthdays. My Mother being 86 ....I really wanted to make her feel Special. I asked the waiter and he knew nothing about it. He went and brought out 2 little pudding bowls with a candle in each one and said Here happy a Birthday. Very disappointing for $ 175.dollar brunch.

    The second time to have Sunday Dinner at the restaurant. More customers were present this second time so it is catching on with patrons. Some additional remodeling was completed that has added a more intimate atmosphere to the establishment. The food and service was outstanding both times. On Sunday night bottles of wine are half price

    The food at brunch is consistently flavorful and the service is consistently great. Dinners are always a treat and portion sizes are large enough to bring home leftovers. There are so many varied foods at brunch that we never tire of it. There is a carving station, ready to make omletes, chicken, and fish along will all the usual breakfast items. Food is much better quality than most restaurants and food is fresh and replenished often. Bagels and smoked salmon along with their famous bisquits, vegetables, cheese grits, fresh fruit and salad make this a satisfying and huge buffet. There are many dessert options. Both Brantley and Veronica, the managers, along with Donna, the hostess and the servers make this exceptionally pleasant .

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    The food was very good for brunch. The service from the waiter staff and hostess was far from five star. I felt we got very poor service, and I watched the interactions of the wait staff and hostess with the other patrons and I felt as if they were there to socialize with each other and not concerned with the level of service given to the patrons. It was not crowded when we arrived, so the lack of service was certainly not because they were overwhelmingly busy. I saw more than one patron call to their waiters for either drinks, checks or something, us included. I have always loved Chequers and have spent several Sundays enjoying their brunch. However, this is a new location and possibly new ownership. Three stars is the best I can do

    we like buffet brunches, and chequers serves one of the best in Marietta. Andrew was our server,he took care of drinks and removing plates. The omlet and roast beef were especially tastey. the assistant manager checked with us a few times to make sure everything was good. This is a great place for a relaxing brunch.

    We had the almond crusted tilapia and paid $24.00 for it. We asked if we got two sides with it and she said it already came with 2 sides, fruit and asparagus. We got 4 asparagus spears and a total of 2 tiny pieces of strawberries cut up. What a ripoff. When the restaurant was Houlihan's the price was $14.00 and you lots of fruit, asparagus and a baked potato. Fruit was not considered a side at Houlihan's. Chequers changed the the sauce recipe and what they created was bland and tasteless and the fish was overcooked. No manager ever ever came around to see how our food was. Chequers is overpriced for what you get and the service is dismal. There is no white tablecloth service with upscale waiters that treat you like a valued customer.

    Sirloin steak was excellent, nice smokey flavor, done perfectly with an excelent side of lemon asparagus risotto. The duck flatbread was another hit. This is a great find in the area. I think it is a notch below the old CHEQUERS, but will soon rise and surpass the old classic.

    This was the first visit for my wife and me. Our appetizer (the brouchetta) was excellent and we both thoroughly enjoyed our entrees (steak and trout). and the sides we ordered with them. The service was very attentive but not overbearing. The ambience was attractive and, very importantly to me, the restaurant was quiet--even though there were a lot of other diners. We will be returning and we will be recommending Chequers to our friends.

    I've dined at Chequers in the old location a number of times but this was my first dining experience at the new location in Marietta. I think where Chequers excels is in consistently great service, food preparation and food seasoning. I've never had over or undercooked food at Chequers and the food is always seasoned properly. The steak was a perfect medium, the shrimp, scallops and salmon were all cooked and seasoned to perfection. If I had one suggestion, however, I would recommend Chequers inspect their ribeye a little closer prior to preparation. Although my ribeye was well-prepared and well seasoned, it could have been trimmed a little closer. Excess gristle can destroy a dining out experience.

    My husband and I were excited to try Chequers, unfortunately, the food did not live up our expectations. The mussels were cooked well but they were so tiny and the sauce was bland. My grouper was moist, but tasted bland. My side of roasted artichoke was terrible. It was underdone and inedible. My husband's tuna was better, but was just ok. His side of asparagus was also underdone, tough and chewy. The lemon, asparagus risotto was very creamy, but lacked salt. For the prices, I expected better quality. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated, however it is way too dark. You can barely read the menu or see your food because the lighting is so dim. Since the restaurant is new, I'd be willing to give it another try.

    Enjoyed going to the same restaurant that used to be by my office and now near my house! Food tasted fresh and service was excellent. The restaurant is a little dark and could use some more outside windows. It was $110 for the two of us and that covered entrees and 3 glasses of wine. Not the cheapest place around but you get what you pay for.

    Many customers pulled out flashlights to read menus that were seated at tables. Booths were well lit but tables were not. It was funny to see so many flashlights, and people holding candles near menus, thought I was at a concert! Very dark since all glass to building is black except for front door. When someone entered front door all people in direction of sunlight were blinded. Think they need a room divided r rethink the layout.

    The new location feels much smaller than the original, which redefines it as a neighborhood gem vs a larger dining room restaurant. The bar is lively but very comfortable-modern, warm & engaging. The real test: Signature biscuit are still AWESOME. The second one always puts me over the top-but is hard to resist. Great quality main courses. They should bring back that great clam chowder. Enjoy!

    After having an excellent brunch at Chequers recently, my wife and I decided to make a reservation for our anniversary dinner at Chequers. We ordered wine, the calamari appetizer, and the grouper and mixed seafood grille entrees. We were really disappointed with the quality of the food. The calamari was over-done and heavily breaded. The grouper had no flavor and was over-done and the mixed grille was mediocre at best - - the scallops were very good, but the salmon, shrimp and crabcakes seemed over-cooked and lacked flavor. The waiter was just ok, he could sense we were disappointed with the meals but did not acknowledge it. We were so looking forward to having Chequers in East Cobb but I would not recommend the restaurant for dinner.

    Hostess and waiter were nice and accomodating. The service was not coordinated; we got a biscuit, then after some time - menus, then orders taken, and then water served. Biscuits were supplied by a staffer with a hot tray roaming the dining area. We were offered one biscuit each the entire night, but they were cold when drinks came. Waiter indicated they might be "out of" some items on the entree menu, but our items were ordered fine. The waiter later accomodated the bill for an unavailable dessert. Our party was pleased with the quality of the food itself. The ambiance was difficult to ascertain due to the darkness. Visibility was low; they could benefit by adding additional lighting. Men's bathroom was clean, but out of hand towels.
