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.

The only complaint was that my husband's grits were not hot. It could have been the timing in taking the food to our table
Overall the food was good for all 3 dishes and I would visit again

Food and service were outstanding. But we had a 1:15 reservation and didn’t get seated til after 1:45. We understand this is a popular place on but just want folks to be aware there could be a wait even with a reservation

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.

Food was very good, especially the fried green tomatoes. Expected the chicken to be tastier given that’s their specialty...crispy, but needed seasoning. Was our first time (went for Mother’s Day); will definitely be back.

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.

The Chicken and Egg is an excellent choice for brunch. The food is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. This was my second time going and the experience made Mother's Day even more special.

I had heard a lot about this restaurant but it did not meet expectations. I am not sure if they were just busy for Mother's Day, but the service was slow. I do not mean that getting our food was slow, it was even for our server to get our water, bring our drinks, check on us, etc. My kids liked the breakfast sweet goods but my husband and my egg specialty dishes were just standard fare.

For a Mother’s Day Brunch it was a decent experience for the $. Wife had asked if onions could be left off her order and the waiter went to the kitchen to find out. Came back and said unfortunately not the way it was prepared. Wife decided ok its worth it I will take it anyway. When the plate arrived not only did it still have onions cooked into (which was expected) but was garnished all over the top with chopped green onions. Had the waiter just gone the extra step and known that they could have at least left off the garnish it would have been much nicer. Seems such an obvious adjustment to me. That aside, we will likely go back one day.

This is a special occasion hot spot for us. Little disappointed this time as the chairs at our table were metal banquet chairs unlike the rest of the restaurant were nice wooded ones. Waitress was nice but a bit slow on refills and I had to ask for coffee. Other than those minor issues the place is always a "10"

Menu has quite a selection. Some of the items are very southern but with a unique twist. I got the chicken and waffles. Chicken was good but not outstanding nor were the waffles. I would possibly go back to try another menu item, however, I do think prices are high for what you get.
