For Starters You get complimentary bread and spinach pie.
Food Network’s Guy Fieri likes the place.
My husband got the seafood bisque that is only available on the weekend and is so very worth it, and a salad. I got a Greek chicken soup and a Greek salad.
Seafood Lovers treat that I enjoyed so very much. Salmon Monte Carlo is what my husband enjoyed.
With all the food consumed while there we got dessert to go. I got the napoleon to compare to my former boss’s yummy dessert.
My husband got the key lime pie. It was a huge piece of pie.

Okay, here is my actual review: The restaurant was rather busy, even later in the evening on a Friday. Although there were a lot of people waiting, their turn over is fairly quick, and we only had to wait about 15 minutes to get a table. In the heat of July, most restaurants are freezing cold from the AC blasting, not this one. In fact, it was a little warm in there, probably due to the amount of people they can get in the place. It is a very large restaurant with lots of seating, that was consistently filled while we were there. Our waiters name was Jordan, and he was a very nice and helpful young man and rather attentive, other than the 10 minutes that he seemed to be nowhere around, I don’t know what the story was with that.
The complementary spinach pie was barely warm, and not all that tasty. The bread was warm and yummy. Dinners come with both soup and salad. The seafood bisque that my husband got was very yummy. So worth the weekend crowd for this alone. My seafood lovers treat was fantastic. The scallops were cooked perfectly, moist and not dry at all. The whole thing was a 10. My husband got stuffed salmon, which he enjoyed. The amount of food you get is crazy. I highly suggest that unless you have a bottomless stomach, when you go plan to share a meal, instead of getting individual ones. This will save room for dessert and save you some on the bill.
We got dessert to go, to enjoy at a later time. I got a Napoleon, because I hadn’t had one in forever and wanted to compare it to the best I have ever enjoyed. Sorry to say that Marietta’s Napoleon couldn’t hold a candle to my former boss’s masterpiece. The key lime pie was a huge piece and very good. Thankfully my husband shared with me.
Over all, the Marietta Diner was a great experience. It’s not somewhere we will go to often. You get a ton of food and good service. Splitting a meal would be a great idea and save on the check. I will say that although it’s on the higher end for price, they definitely deliver more than any other high end place I have ever eaten. Their menu is huge, I have no idea how they pull off such great food with so much variety in what they cook. My husband and I are fans of chief Ramsay, and both commented that he would think their menu has way too many options. All in all, I would recommend going and experiencing this diner, it’s menu claims it is ranked #1 in Georgia and #3 in the country, and it just may be that good.
