Diner Reviews
  • "As usual, everything was impeccable and beyond reproach. I often recommend this establishment to people looking for some incredible cuisine. I can't recommend just one dish because they're all delectable..."

  • "I live in the city and appreciate the choices I have in town! Sometimes I like to go exploring and see what is beyond! My recent choice was the chicken and the egg. It was an excellent decision."

  • "We went there to celebrate a special occasion. The food was fabulous!!! Service was great. It was a littke loud but that's because it was packed. I would definitely recommend reservations especially for brunch."

  • "We went for Sunday brunch at noon. We had various versions of eggs benedict, all well prepared and served quite promptly. The coffee was not what I hope for when going out for brunch - fairly weak. Our experience was overwhelmed with the noise level. We had a table of four and by the end of the meal we had all but given up being able to hear each other at our booth table. For this reason, I would not return."

  • "Chicken and the Egg was once the new leader in West Cobb restaurants, but its relatively stagnant brunch menu has made it difficult for the restaurant to keep up with its peers. New, innovative menu items are needed. The brunch food is good, but it seems to be hit or miss across menu choices and across different visits. Consistency would help the restaurant, as would a chef's brunch special. Service is fine, but again, it depends on the server and the day. Worth checking out, but perhaps for lunch or dinner instead, where the menu options may be more to your liking."

  • "The food was okay, but the meatloaf and green beans were not freshly prepared, and temperature was cold. The service was disappointing, as to boldly train a new hire without acknowledging such with the guest seemed rude. The experience was all about training the new waiter, and not about the customers and their dining experience. We have been dined here several times, but this will be our last time. Just disappointed too many times."

  • "First time to go to this restaurant. Was nearly empty for our late lunch, but the food was great and the service was very attentive. Lunch was reasonably priced as well. We would go again! Had a very nice bar as well, though we did not partake."

  • "The Chicken and Egg is a one of Marietta's best kept secrets! This place is where modern meets country with a very tasteful eclectic decor. The service is awesome and the alcoholic beverages are well mixed. The bar area is outstanding and the current promotion of $5 Bloody Mary and $8 bottomless mimosa make this place a sought out brunch spot. You must try this location it will become your favorite!"

  • "Started with the fried green tomatoes - crispy, with ham and a good sauce and chutney. The breading was not too thick so the tomatoes shined through. Could have had a bit more sauce. They use to put goat cheese on here as well, but that seems to have changed. The rolls and sorgrham butter were delicious as usual. My wife had the fried chicken (breading was good, chicken a little dry), collards and mac and cheese and both were very good. I had the salmon with a green pea puree and mushrooms. Salmon could have had a better sear, but was tasty. The skillet cornbread was bland and tasteless."

  • "The brunch here is just wonderful. Fried green tomato appetizer is one of my favorites. I love their bottomless mimosas too."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We've eaten here before and always enjoy it. The service was a little slower than normal, but not bad. We were told two servers were out that day. It was still enjoyable and I would highly recommend Chicken and the Egg to everyone."

  • "Two visits (Friday dinner, Sunday brunch). I LOVE the farm to market concept and the descriptions in their menu. Always a pleasant greeting. Decor is inviting and makes me want to like this restaurant. Simple, quaint, southern sophisticated. I read the menu and "Everything sounds so yummy!" Delivery is disappointing??? Both visits, not only myself, but also my guests, were disappointed with the presentation, the taste, the flavor of the items versus the mouthwatering, intriguing menu descriptions. Across the board disparity...all ordering different items. Bloody Mary was boring. Tomato was not "garden fresh." Bacon was precooked. Missing that punch to make the experience memorable! I No need to go back, but I might. Too loud!"

  • "We had eaten dinner here on a previous visit to Marietta, this was our first lunch opportunity and we were not disappointed! Anne was a superb server who ensured that our drinks were always full and our meals served with a smile. The chicken tender lunch plate was loaded with lightly coated chicken and two dipping sauces, the hash brown casserole was creamy and tasty. The chicken fried steak with brown gravy was as well, prepared with real beef and not a manufactured patty. Real food - traditional southern preparation - great service! We will be back!"

  • "Could use a little more flavor to the food. Presentation is great but something is missing in the seasoning."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We took a guest to this restaurant based upon past experiences, which had been good. Two of our three meals were poor. One was completely inedible. They replaced it with a different meal, but it was a starch (ravioli), stuffed with a starch (polenta), covered with a starch (creamed corn) and it too was not good. The chef was there, the staff seemed poorly trained and the menu is in change (which is the explanation to our question about a number of missing items). The only positives were the wine and the shrimp appetizer. The place was really empty on a Saturday night, which seemed a bit odd. This place has gone from our favorite list to the won't eat there list. Sad....it used to be a lot better than that."

  • "Chicken and the Egg bring a new twist on old favorites! Chef has really done a great job and complementing all of your favriotes with his various condiments. The Jezebel Sauce is the best and should be sold in local stores."

  • "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 went for brunch with a large group. the server was amazing. we did not have to wait very long for our orders. the food was good although it could have been hotter. I can understand that being a problem with a large group. will be back."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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!"

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

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!!"

We had a great evening and we will return for more great evenings. When you go do try the Hangar Steak.........excellent!"
