I loved this place. I was at Marietta College for Homecoming and woke up early and hungry for breakfast. Boy was I glad I went. The breakfast menu is expansive. The choices sounded so good, I had trouble deciding on what to get. The waitress...(who knew the locals by name and food preferences), was friendly and very cute, and she helped. I got the spicy eggs Benedict. First, this was nothing like eggs Benedict. It was in a large bowl, with hash browns on the bottom, a thick slice of ham, perfectly poached eggs, pieces of jalapeño cornbread wedged on the side and topped with spicy hollandaise. It wasn't killer spicy, just enough. It was delicious and plentiful and I savored every bite. The waitress told me everything is homemade, including the cream, ketchup and mustard. I got the ketchup for no other reason than to try homemade ketchup for the first time. I had nothing to put in on, so I ordered the homemade breakfast sausage, also delicious and full of texture. I washed out all down with fresh squeezed OJ and coffee. If it was closer, I'd be there every weekend. As it is, though, that alone gives me reason to returnMore

Unfortunately, we only went here once. There menu is outstanding! The service is impeccable. We will be having breakfast here every morning on our next trip. There is nothing like authentic cooking and this restaurant has it!

We’ve had several meals at this restaurant and I would definitely recommend their breakfast; lunch is just okay. The breakfast menus boasts mostly locally-sourced items, such as eggs, breakfast meats, maple syrup, etc., and they are all delicious. The pancakes are HUGE; I mistakenly ordered...the large at my first visit and couldn’t eat them all. My husband got the French Toast and it was amazing. The indoor dining section is very clean and charmingly decorated. The outdoor patio is a great option, too. Service has been very good for all of our visits.More

We visited Marietta for a getaway and had read about the Busy Bee. With those kind of reviews, you HAVE to try it out! We did and had an outstanding brunch.

We went here because we had heard such great things. I ordered the busy bee breakfast and was very disappointed. I ordered the busy bee breakfast. Portions were very small considering the price. I've never been served such a small portion of eggs. It looked...like one egg instead of 2. The waitress did bring out another egg when I complained. Hash browns were also very small portion. Bacon was overcooked. The omelets and skillets others at our table ordered looked good. We won't be back. I gave it 3 stars because the staff was wonderful.More

Service was slow. I ordered two sliders, Reuben and meatloaf. The brisket was more than 1/2 fat. The meatloaf was overbaked. I did like the French fries and there were more than I could eat. We were exploring the area. There are lots of places...to eat in Marietta, I would not choose this place again.More

My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to Marietta for sightseeing. We found this little gem while trying to find something for breakfast, which was kinda hard to find a non chain breakfast restaurant. This place was phenomenal. Huge portions, great prices and the...food is to die for. I grew up on a farm and it felt like I was reliving my childhood with the fresh food. We loved it so much we went two days in a row! They were extremely busy, but it didn’t show with the service or the wait time. They were on definitely on their A game.We will probably visit again just to come eat here again.More

We had great delicious food today while visiting Marietta. He had the biscuits and gravy platter and I had the cheeseburger and fries. Both meals were very good and we loved that the sources were regionally local and fresh. Our waitress was very friendly and...efficient. The restaurant decor was very nice and clean.More

Popular place on a Saturday morning! Arrived at about 9 a.m. and had to wait about 25 minutes (sometime a wait isn't worth it...this time is was). Excellent food, service, and reasonable prices. Whenever possible, ingredients are locally sourced, which means things are about as...fresh as it gets. Although the place was crazy busy, the hard-working staff worked well together; like a well-oiled machine. Not much else to say except we had an excellent experience. Highly recommended!More
