I adore eating here, especially Sunday brunch. Great mimosas and delicious food. Learned something new from management that you should know: their appetizers (which are outstanding, from donuts to hummus to breakfast breads) should be ordered and delivered to the table before you order your main meal. That way you get to take your time enjoying them before the entree comes. This is my go-to breakfast and brunch place!

Had lunch with my daughter's in-laws while they were in town, and chose the restaurant based on location. We had a delightful and tasty lunch in a very pleasant atmosphere. Would certainly return.

This is probably my 5th or 6th time eating here & I continue to want to REALLY like this place, but the food is just average. I've tried a number of things and they're just ok, but I had to send back the pork schnitzel because it was tough. The menu reads well, but the taste doesn't deliver REALLY good upscale southern cuisine. The best thing I've had is the squash casserole which they ALWAYS seems to run out of. Today, I arrived around 12pm & they had run out.

Guys, it's time to take the food up a few levels because it's not meeting the expectations of the truly open & inviting space and a delicious sounding menu. I want to like this place, but it's just not delivering on flavor consistently.

There’s a reason it’s got that name. Great eggs. Delicious chicken. Hamburger, only ok. Should have stuck with my usual favorites— biscuits, French toast, all kinds of egg dishes. Staff is always accommodating and mimosas are worth the drive from Buckhead.

The brunch was simple, yet good... the mimosas were great .. service was friendly, I only wish we didn’t feel rushed.. we were there for our anniversary and the check was brought before we were through having mimosas. She had to print another because we were not done.

Was there two weeks in a row. Week 1 was excellent - in every aspect of experience. So I returned week 2 with friends. Menu vs availability of food was horrific. Out of wine ordered. Out of beer ordered. Out of appetizer ordered. Out of 2 desserts ordered . Out of after dinner martinis ordered. Became a sad joke when the waitress would come back to explain time and again. Not sure as to why, but my guests speculated that restaurant is not doing well and was attempting to manage down inventories. Sad, as what we had was good, but troubling experience. Never experienced anything to that degree before.

Loved my visit- it was the second time I came. Each time I had egg-cellent food. You can go wrong with anything that has gravy!! Chicken Poutine was amazing. You can eat it all there easily, or take half home. For what you get, and quality, the price was fair. Btw- you can get French toast as a side (hooray for the indecisive!)

I would say to be careful of the drinks. Our server mentioned drink specials for the weekend- I didn’t realize some of our drinks were $9- each!! (Ouch!) Stick to the $3 mimosas- which were delightful!!

The menu for brunch is extensive and provides great options. THe service was great as was the atmosphere and the restaurant itself. My biggest complaint was the food was very bland. There was little to no seasoning on everything we ordered - eggs, hashbrown casserole, omelets, chicken and biscuits etc. All of our dishes had little to no flavor and there was nothing great about the food. WIth the menu being so good and the options being so unique, I was very disappointed in the flavor of the food. I would not go back at this point.

We had a group that consisted of friends from Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia meet at Chicken and the Egg for Sunday brunch. Everything was perfect; the food was delicious, our server was knowledgeable and willing to make recommendations for each of us when asked. I really enjoyed the grapefruit mimosa as well.

I had dinner here on a Thursday when they (currently, 5/24/18) have a two for $25 deal going on. You get two mains and an appetizer to split for $25. This is an outstanding value as the portions are big to begin with, and the dishes are discounted and the appetizer is free. Even at regular prices, the value is very good, and I have never had a disappointing dish here.

This restaurant was recommended to me, based on my daughters visit during breakfast. The service was very good, but the food quality was poor and overpriced. The meat was overcooked and very tough. With Gabriels so close, I don't expect to be back.

There is something about this restaurant I cannot put my finger on. They have good food, they have good service, but there is something lacking that I cannot specifically name. Each meal I've had there has been . . .okay. When someone suggests the restaurant, I go, but there are other restaurants in the area that draw me back more times. I want to like this restaurant more than I do. But I just can't name what it is that makes me stop at a certain place.

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant! I stumbled on it by accident but this was such an amazing little find. The ambiance is great, the food is wonderful and the prices are amazing! I've only gone during brunch so I can't speak to the lunch menu but the breakfast menu is very health conscience and I believe they use local ingredients. The staff is very nice, a little slow, but nice none-the-less. I would strongly suggest making reservations however, they are always so packed it might be very difficult to walk in and grab a seat.
