Reviews

If you like Southern Breakfast and Lunch this is the spot. I personally recommend the fried chicken and the grits also deserve honorable mention. Do not let the line intimidate you. All the options are great and you will need time to decide. The manager personally seated and introduced himself to everyone. All the employees seemed ha ... read more

The Chicken and French toast was really delicious. The chicken had the right amount of seasoning, very juicy...I was hoping for a big piece of breast. Great customer service.

Soooo good. Seriously. If you are near the Marietta Square do yourself a favor and stop in at The Marietta Local. Delicious breakfasts and lunches. I've been there more than a dozen times and the food is fresh and made to order each visit. French toast and waffles is a crowd favorite. Their chicken biscuit is THE chicken biscuit.

Updated Feb 2019 review: Went with my dad and enjoyed their chicken buscuits for the first time. They were pretty good! The biscuits are nice and fresh. Definitely was even better after I added some grape jelly! My dad enjoyed the buscuit also. Initial review: Have yet to try their chicken biscuit, but the fried chicken and french ... read more

Terrific meatloaf!
Great location on Marietta Square. Great meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Huge servings, enough to take another meal home. Friendly staff. Not cheap, but really good food.

I find myself in Marietta for work pretty frequently, and I've had my eye on The Marietta Local for a while now. I was in the mood for Southern food, and the idea of fried chicken was too enticing. I ordered the chicken and French toast along with a side of quinoa salad. Everything is tasty, particularly that fried chicken. Tender bo ... read more

I've visited Atlanta three times now and this is my first time trying this place. A mistake! I should have been eating there every time! The food is to die for, the staff is so sweet! And it's the coziest place I've been to in Atlanta, with a great location with plenty to do after eating there. Wow! Blown away!

Found this restaurant a couple years ago. They have been in the papers for their chicken. I'm telling you my family and I love it. The best chicken and stone ground grits I've ever had. And I had never heard of chicken and waffles till I had it at Marietta local. Try it and you will be hooked.

Glad to see this one on the Square. A welcome staple. Chicken biscuits and/or omlettes are my recommendation. If going for lunch, the chicken salad sarnie is tops! Best seats are outside or facing the street from within.

I went to breakfast and was greeted by a friendly staff member who explained the menu and told me about the most popular dishes. Then she even offered me a coffee while I waited for my party to arrive. You order at the counter and then they bring you your food. They are only open for breakfast and lunch and begin serving lunch at 11.

I finally understand the hype behind The Marietta Local--the food is just downright amazing! I ordered the Buffalo Chicken wrap and I couldn't eat it fast enough.

Great Breakfast
Fantastic and unusual chicken dishes for breakfast and lunch such as Tennessee Hot Chicken and chicken with waffles. There is usually a long line to order, but it moves fast. Great food and excellent service right off the S E corner of the Marietta Square.
