“Great Meat & Veggies Meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

My husband and I ate here for the first time Sunday at lunch. We arrived a few minutes after 12:00 and there were plenty of people there. A few minutes later, the place was packed and there was a wait for tables. I had the turkey & dressing and my husband had country fried steak. Both meals came with two vegetables, and the servings were huge! The turkey was tender and juicy, not dry at all like you may experience at some restaurants. And the dressing was like homemade. The veggies were tasty and seasoned well. I had leftovers to take home, but my husband did not. So he obviously enjoyed his meal too. Our waitress was friendly, but not quite as attentive as we would have liked. I wouldn't say the service was bad, the restaurant was full, but it could have been better. She did apologize for not checking on us quicker. It will not prevent us from eating there again. We really liked the food and will look forward to trying something different next time.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I've eaten here several times, and it's always been good. The staff is pleasant and is very knowledgeable about the menu.

“Great southern food in a relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went to West Cobb Diner on a Friday night. We were going to wait for a table (about 35 min wait), but we noticed the bar had open spots, so we sat there instead. Our waitress/bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food & drinks. My husband had the fried cod and I had the pimento cheese and ham sandwich (minus the ham). We were very pleased with the taste of the food, and there was plenty left over to take home. The spinach and artichoke dip with pita bread appetizer was fantastic. The food was definitely on the heavy side, but it was great for the price. We'd definitely eat there again.

“Good food, terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I came to this restaurant expecting good food, but wasnt sure how the service would be. Some of our friends came here and said that the food was unlike anywhere else in the west cobb/marrietta area, however the service was never too great. We found this to be true. The hostesses seemed like they would rather be anywhere else in the world when they sat us. They slapped the menus down and our silverware was half-rolled. Our server was the worst part. She was not concerned with our service she just wanted to write our orders down and get us out as quickly as possible. This would be understandable if the restaurant had been busy, but it was extremely slow. There seemed to be no one in charge, it was a bunch of teenagers/ young people having side conversations the entire time. The server also did not care to remove our plates or get anything out of our way. We had to ask several times for refills because she never offered to do so herself. The restaurant itself was also filthy. We sat at our table with food at our feet. Our table was sticky and wobbly. We asked for that to be fixed and it failed to happen. Our server had an attitude the whole time and we will never be coming here again. This was a horrible experience from beginning to end.
