Had brunch late on a Sunday. Informed that they may not have fresh avocados but server checked with kitchen and said they could do avo toast, which tasted terrible and def not made with fresh avo. Ordered a skillet breakfast which was better but no...offer to comp the avo toast. Disappointed as we went out of our way to go there given the great reviews. Having said that, friendly staff, cute place. Maybe we caught on a bad day.More

Just a super spot for breakfast. Food made from scratch from local farmers. Old school cafe. I really like the french toast and ham. You need to check out this local treasure.

Best restaurant breakfast I’ve had in a long time. Wife had mini bee . It was also...excellent. Excellent food. Excellent service. Highly recommend!!More

Well-known for its breakfasts, the Busy Bee is a delightful, little resto I can heartily recommend. I cheated and got a Reuben. It was OK, but not a world beater. My wife got eggs benedict and said they were excellent. The service was really friendly...and really good. Bravo Busy Bee!More

We ate breakfast at the Busy Bee three days in a row on a recent visit to Marietta. Obviously, we were very pleased since we went back twice after the initial visit. The menu offers a nice variety of breakfast options with bread, meat and...eggs locally sourced. Service is very good, atmosphere is relaxed and there is plenty of parking.More

We came here for breakfast during a weekend anniversary getaway. Our Air B&B host gifted us a gift card and I’m glad they did. Excellent little place! Very busy but welcoming. The food was delicious, fresh and not heavy with oil or grease (that happens...at times with breakfast). The coffee was great with fresh cream and it was impressive how they incorporate local foods.More

We go to Marietta a few times each year and ALWAYS have breakfast at The Bee. Great food. Pork breakfast was good. The french toast is super. The bacon is crispy, Eggs your way. What's not to like. Sausage is spicy.

We ate here twice during our stay in Marietta. The atmosphere is welcoming even to us outsiders. I ordered breakfast both times choosing the “small plate.” Don’t let the name fool you. You get plenty of food from the “small plate.” The pancakes is the...size of the large plate; plus you get an egg the way you like it and choice of meat. We did not go away hungry and the price was reasonable.More

Get a table. Poorly made booths are for those 110lbs and smaller because the table isn’t the kind you can move. The back door does not shut by itself and more than 10 “non-customers “ used it to stink up the bathroom near our table....Then they would leave and not shut the exit door leaving it hang open. They make their own catsup and BBQ sauce which is sour and tastes disgusting. The waitress was very kind and upon me asking for store bought ketchup and bbq sauce I was told that the store owner refused to allow me to have any if I didn’t like theirs. Great job store owner, way to please your customers by caring more about your ego than my experience there. I would never return again. Food was plain with little taste. Glass of water was about 6oz glasses. Post on your wall board all you want about how your food is produced locally, makes no difference if it tastes awful which it does. Burnt French fries are not exactly what a customer wants either.More

I avoid national chain restaurants - they're boring and the food is usually crap. Busy Bee is one the small eateries I love to eat at. I ordered a monthly special: Key Lime Pancakes. I'm not sure why I ordered pancakes, I'm usually disappointed. These...were the best pancakes I've ever eaten. They were light and fluffy - unlike that national chain who has Pancakes in their name. The service was friendly and I felt important. If I'm traveling through Marietta at breakfast or lunch time I'd eat here again.More

I have never before given only one star to a restaurant visit, but on the day I was there, the Busy Bee was understaffed, the food arrived cold, and the $3.99 "Fresh squeezed orange juice" was Tang or some other not-real orange juice. Given the...many positive reviews, maybe I just arrived at a really bad day at the restaurant.More
