We've been meaning to try Common Quarter for quite some time. When I heard it was closing/changing I made a reservation. It was such a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, our waitress was so sweet and helpful, and the children's menu and accommodations were done in such a classy way. It was so nice to be able to take our daughter to a nice restaurant where we felt she was actually welcome. I hope the new restaurant will keep some of these qualities.

We are fans of Common Quarter, but also happy to see Muss and Turner coming to
East Cobb. Makes dining a little more interesting in this part of Cobb.
Food always delish, and staff top notch.

Food was tasty and well presented. However, too little food for the price. I had a cup of soup and a salad. I came home and ate more; I was still hungry. Can't remember that happening in any other restaurant .

We were there for New Year's eve. Our reservation was for 9:30pm which turned out to be great. Even though they were closing at their normal 10pm we were there until almost 11pm and no one tried to rush us. The food was amazing and our waitress suggested a great wine that was so reasonably priced we were shocked. Our waitress was very personable, made great suggestions and was engaging without being intrusive. We enjoyed the evening tremendously and look forward to going back.

Fast friendly staff. Good location. Menu selection had enough variety without being overwhelming. Decor could be better. Adding table cloths would help soften the concrete floors. Good place for meeting friends and family. Maybe not for a romantic date.

Just go---you'll love it. I didn't know what to expect having never been here. But Common Quarter exceeded anything I could imagine. From the moment we walked in, the service was amazing. Our server, Chase, was perhaps the best I've ever seen in any setting. He recommended three dishes, and we ordered two of those. He was exactly right--the food was amazing. All other restaurants could learn from what CQ is doing--I wish I experienced food and service half this good in other places. I'll definitely be back since I've found a new favorite!

Had a fantastic family meal during Christmas Eve with my husband and my two young daughters. Food was great as well as service. Good kid's menu. We especially liked that it was a great atmosphere and even though it was fine dining, it was still kid and family friendly. Will definitively go back and try it for brunch.

GO, you must just go! Braden was our server...and he was AWESOME! Authentic guy with personality... like he enjoys what he does. I find that so important in a server!!!! The style in which they cater to you was amazing. They heard through our conversation that we were celebrating ... and then showed up with four glasses of champagne to get us going...on the house! The service just continued from there.

The table had the wings and the pimento cheese appetizers...lovely. Then entree's... two burgers, one philly, and one.....I had Braden chose because I couldn't! He brought me the pork shoulder! It was nothing less than spectacular! Really just good food, good people, fun atmosphere! An East Marietta must!!!! We are so lucky to have such fabulous chefs in Cobb County...watch out Atlanta!!!!

I love Muss & Turner (same group as Common Quarter) and I really want to love Common Quarter. The food is very good but the service is hit or miss. My daughter and I ate at CQ on Wednesday; the restaurant was busy but we had reservations and were seated promptly. Our server was very focused - just not on us! We had wanted to order an appetizer but were unable to get her attention. As I mentioned, the food was wonderful, I ordered the Coffee Braised Pork (yummy) with a side order of Collard Greens. The Greens were very good - but really needed some vinegar. Our server didn't come back to check on us until after we had almost finished our meal. When I mentioned needing vinegar she brought us a great one with rosemary and thyme - it absolutely made the Greens - but by then we had already eaten most of them. I will definitely return for the food - just wish that the service was on par!

Fantastic service with great food and drinks. They were very accommodating for our fairly large group, and even looked up how to make the perfect Cynar Julep... nailed it! We will definitely be back. Be prepared, big portions may be enough to share!

Followed recommendation from Trip Adviser and Open Table. Atmosphere is NOT intimate; very open seating area adjacent to bar, so noise level can be quite loud, especially with groups present. Food offerings were varied and our selections were well prepared and promptly served. Quality was good. They were busy (7:00 p.m. Saturday) but the service was equal to the challenge of a full house, although quite impersonal due to the demands on the servers.

My friend and I had a wonderful dinner. The salmon was a bit undercooked and the manager got involved and made everything right. The Brocoli was different - with raisins and almonds....delicious. The Sweet Potato hummus was also delicious and served with fresh pita and a nice assortment of vegetables. The Lump Crab Pasta looked amazing... Service was excellent. Manager was outstanding!

Our server, Chase, was delightful. The food here is so very yummy. We had She Crab Toast and Pimento Cheese appetizers. 4 entrees and two desserts. I will say that I could eat the Grown Up Grilled Cheese every day! The Lump Crab spaghetti was one of my favorites also. We will make this a regular destination.

A little more than disappointed when our table was accidentally given to another guest so our only option was to wait or sit on the heated patio. I wouldn't have normally minded, but I had made a reservation ahead of time and asked for a private table for a well deserved date night, and it was a cold and rainy outside. So needless to say our first impression was not great.

Service and food was good, but not great. I was really expecting more based on other reviews and the website. I was the most pleased with my entree. It was good and made up for the initial impression.

Overall, good but not great. With so many great restaurants to try in the area, we will likely not go back for our occasional night out. Especially at that price point. Would maybe go back for the entree with friends or with the family.

The food was excellent! Our service was only average, could have been better. Just a note to management: our server never checked on us until the end of the meal. It was busy but shouldn't have been that busy... However not enough to prevent us from returning!

We frequent Common Quarters often and always have a positive experience. Love the Brussels sprouts and the scallops when they are in season. I have enjoyed every entree and side I have ordered. I like the fact that they accommodate kids really well while maintaining the look and feel of a top notch restaurant. Common Quarter is a great treat in East Cobb.

Great neighborhood gem. We heard from a neighbor that there burgers were good. So we went back with the kids. Everyone order a burger and loved it. Generous portions. Had the veggie plate there in the passed that was very fresh and tasty. Kids Neal even cane with a scoop of ice cream.
