  • "If nothing else, the bottomless mimosas and the snicker noodle French toast were definitely worth the try!!!"

  • "Homemade doughnuts as an appetizer were a huge hit with my daughter. Everyone's dishes were very good. The BLT with pimento cheese was very large. Definitely a splurge if you are dieting. Crowded but we had reservation so sat quickly."

  • "We had dinner based on a recommendation from a friend a while back, then found it again on Open Table while looking for somewhere new to eat. I'm glad we did! The food was fresh, hot and homemade. I had the pork stroganoff and I nearly skipped it b/c of past experience but so glad I went with it! It was nothing like I've had before! It was delicious and I will be ordering it again! We also had the fried chicken which was so tender and very tasty. For desert we tried the banana bread pudding and the chocolate cream brulee - 2 thumbs up for both! Lastly, you must try the blueberry mojito...it's a great twist on a classic summer drink! You won't be disappointed until you reach the bottom of the glass!"

  • "We've visited Chicken & The Egg a few times and have always had a good experience. Nice atmosphere, good menu options, reasonable prices and good food. Our party enjoyed caesar salads, fried green tomatoes and mushroom toasts as starters that were all very good. We followed that up with fried chicken that was also very good. This restaurant should be supported better by the community and surrounding neighborhoods."

  • "This was my third time dining here and I have never been disappointed with the food. Quality is top notch and consistent. Service is excellent. Would recommend for a very pleasant casual dinner out where you know you meal is individually created and served with the freshest of local ingredients."

  • "My husband and I met another couple at the restaurant. We ended up staying for quite awhile. The server was extremely helpful, never rushed us, showed up when we needed something, and knew about all we asked on the menu. The food was excellent - I had the pork tenderloin - cooked perfectly, great flavor, great sides. Another one in the group had shrimp and grits - very good! The other two had their chicken - only complaint - couldn't eat it all!! Appetizers were great, drinks were great - just an all around great evening. More folks should check out the Chicken and the Egg!!"

  • "For food, service, ambience this place has never disappointed.....a favorite of mine and my daughter. I had the pleasure of my daughter's company for a Father's Day dinner. We had a great evening and we will return for more great evenings. When you go do try the Hangar Steak.........excellent!"

  • "I have always loved going to The Chicken and the Egg and we were quite disappointed when we were there for brunch on Sunday. New server who was not familiar w/ the menu, our food was really delayed and then the orders for two of the meals were put in wrong. They boast they were rated the best place for brunch in America...I would have to say that wasn't our experience. I will definitely go back but probably not on a holiday, such as Father's Day."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food was excellent as usual, however, the service was a little less than desirable. Our server was sweating profusely! My family felt that was very distracting and uncomfortable. I'm not sure if the server's sweating is a personal issue, or the shirts the servers are asked to wear are not made of the correct type of fabric. Not pleasant to see when food is being served. Also, when he served our drinks he always held the glass near the top of the rim. Not very sanitary! I suggest management frequently refreshes the service delivery approach with staff. Other than that my family enjoyed the meal and ambience."

  • "My family was very pleased with our dining experience at C & E. The portions were plentiful, the wait staff was courteous and efficient, and the atmosphere was charming. I definitely suggest reservations as there was a long wait for people without them."

  • "Had a reservation and got seated in reasonable time. However waited over an hour for food. Biscuits brought as a after thought but no plate tout it on and no butter or jelly or honey. Just a plain biscuit in your hand. Understaffed or no good expiring in kitchen"

  • "Great service. Excellent farm to table brunch. Can't say enough about this local gem. Our server was amazing. So much attention to detail. Delicious!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed celebrating Father's Day with the Sunday Brunch. Great good and good service. Black eyed hummus was delicious. Even our picky teenagers enjoyed the food. Thank you to the managers for checking on us and helping with refilling our drinks when our waitress was slammed. Good teamwork."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We arrived in a festive mood around 9:15 p.m. Had wine and drinks. The wait staff demonstrated congenial personality. The food came out of the kitchen in a very timely manner and was very tasty. Good follow-up by wait staff. No complaints. Had been there twice before. They do not disappoint."

  • "I took a friend for her birthday this past Saturday and it was the first visit for each of us. For an appetizer we had cornbread, which we both thought was dry and a little bland. For entrees, I had the fried chicken and she had the steak. The white meat of the fried chicken was extremely moist, but it did lack some flavor, which could easily be added to the breading, and it would be delish. The mac n cheese was described as fantastic, but I thought it was just okay. The greens, however, have a wonderful flavor. The steak was very good and had excellent flavor. The ambiance of the restaurant is great and with some touches here and there to the food, it could easily be more than average."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Very good food, I wouldn't crave it or drive out of my way, but if you're on that side of town it's a good spot for brunch"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I drove past this place for years thinking I should try it sometime, and when I finally did I got hooked! It's now my go-to place for times when neither I not my husband can decide where to eat, as well as the place I tell all my friends they have to try. I'm especially fond of the fried green tomatoes and pimiento cheese."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We've been coming here for lunch and dinner meals since they opened. We always enjoy the meal. We had an adult birthday for 6 last weekend and loved their delicious brunch offerings. They have a great menu. Lots of choices but not so many that they don't give each preparation their full attention. I rarely have the same thing and am always satisfied."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We have been to brunch here three times, and while it was good the first visit (we went early on a Saturday), and okay the second (again early on a Sunday) this last visit (Sunday afternoon) was not up to par. I love chicken and biscuits, and while the chicken was a normal portion the first two visits, this last time the chicken portion had shrunk to just above a bite sized portion. The hash brown casserole was also very bland and undercooked when the first two visits it had been tasty. I get it that a Sunday afternoon brunch is going to be busy, but they should be prepared for the numbers. Our server was in the weeds when we sat down and the server who delivered our food basically threw the plates on the table and ran off without a word."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The food was very tasty here. My only complaint was that the side dish portions were small."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "I found this restaurant on a list for bottomless mimosas. After reviewing the menu, I thought it was worth a try. I'll definitely be back. The food was great but I think it was the service that really sold me. Everyone I encountered was pleasant and made me feel special."

  • "The food was fabulous! I made a reservation through Open Table for my mother's birthday dinner. Although it was our first time there you would have thought we were regulars the way the staff treated us. Great experience and we will be back."

  • "We go to chicken and the egg for date night. The ambiance lends itself to quiet conversation and the food doesn't disappoint. "

  • "It is nice that this restaurant is organic and eco friendly and I know that it is costly to be that way. However, I feel that the prices are high for what you get. Food was tasty but some items could use more spices. Milk was very expensive at $2.75 for a small glass."

  • "We dined here for brunch on Mother's Day. My fiance had the Bayou Omelette and my Mom and I had the Shrimp n Grits w/French Toast. Everything was so delicious and filling! Only downside was the dessert. I ordered banana pudding to go. When I received it, one of the containers the banana pudding was in was only half full from the other container that was full, and it was soupy. The taste was great but the consistency was awful. Who eats banana pudding with only 2 slices of banana in it? We did express our disappointment to the waitress. She did explain to us that is how they prepare their banana pudding, and was kind to take 1 of the banana puddings off our tab. Other than this, I would definitely return again."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I've been wanting to try this place out so I made reservations for Mother's Day. Myself, husband and 2 year old daughter sat down at a booth and were treated to excellent service, food and drinks! I recommend the breakfast poutine and the oysters and grits- bottomless mimosas for $9!! It was great! They'll be seeing me again."

  • "If you are looking for a good brunch option in Marietta, Chicken and the Egg is a good choice. The brunch menu is broad and offers something for most everyone. Some menu items are staples; others rotate in and out. Service is usually very good. Just avoid the table nearest the front door; you will feel like you are on display, and it is not a very good seat. The restaurant needs to put up a wall or planter to block those entering and leaving the front door. Otherwise, you will feel every draft."

  • "I took my family for a noon Mother's Day celebration and we were pleased with our entire experience. They were able to provide a few vegan options for me and all of the portions were plentiful. We will be back."
