The Wing Cafe has been in Marietta for almost 20 years, originally as a Wild Wing location. They have 42 taps across 3 bars: the "main" bar in the center of the restaurant, a bar in the shuffleboard/smoking room, and a tiki bar.

The main bar and restaurant are ok, but nothing spectacular. The smoking room is all that you'd expect it to be, except with better beers and a shuffleboard table. But, the standout is the tiki bar.

The tiki bar/deck is actually the nicest outdoor area we've seen at a bar in the Atlanta area. The bar seats around 25 people, and has about a dozen taps, along with bottled beers, liquor and frozen beverages. The large deck provides additional seating. At most bars around Atlanta, the deck overlooks a busy street or a parking lot, but the Wing's deck overlooks a wooded area at the back of the property. (One downfall of the tiki bar is that if they are busy, then you're limited to the beers at that bar; they typically only have one bartender, and it's tough for him or her to run into the other bars to get beers.) Unfortunately the tiki bar is only open from April to October, but you can go out to the deck whenever the weather is cooperating.

The bartenders are very knowledgeable about the beers, and are happy to give suggestions if you are unable to pick a selection from the beer menu. The servers' knowledge is a little more hit-and-miss. Some of the servers know the beers almost as well as the bartenders; others, not so much. But, you can always get a sample of a draft before ordering a glass. If you're still undecided, order a flight; flights are a great deal at $6.95 for four 6 oz. tasters.

The Wing has a pretty extensive menu. Some items are better than others, but on average I'd say that the food is better than average for a bar. Based on the restaurant's name, it should come as no surprise that wings are their specialty; they have over 30 varieties. But, my recommendation would be to pass on the wings, and get the Bac-O-Burger. Oh, this isn't a burger that just has a couple of strips of bacon on top; instead, the bacon is cut up and infused right into the burger to ensure that every bite is full of bacon-y goodness. I'd also recommend the Black N' Blue Burger or french dip. The menu also has a number of other options, including sandwiches, wraps and salads.

The Wing has a number of events going on monthly and each week. Weekly events include Texas Hold 'Em tournaments, their very popular Tuesday night wing special, and live music on Fridays and Saturdays. They host beer dinners approximately once per month. The Wing also has a day-long event in the courtyard almost every month, including an Oktoberfest, St. Patrick's Day Celebration and Mardi Gras Crawfish Boil.

Now named ‘The Wing Café and Tap House’; same location as the Wild Wing, but better food and service. We inadvertently went there on ‘Two for Tuesday’, and it was crowded. We were pleasantly surprised that even with the crowd the service was very efficient. The appetizers and wings were very good, and with the two-for, the price was equally very good.

I have been craving wings for a week so we went to Wing Cafe today. Disappointed, to sum it up in 1 word. The competing inside & outside music was distracting to say the least. The keyboardist for the live music looked half asleep while they played sad renditions of classic tunes. The server was friendly but utterly clueless. We ordered 20 wings with 4 flavors. At least 2 of the "flavors" had no flavor at all. We asked the server to identify the flavors which she could not. After several attempts to guess the flavors she still had no idea. During her attempt to identify she poked our wings with her fake fingernails!! We also ordered the hummus that was very bland, oily & had some of the saddest vegetables I've ever seen. White celery, white & limp carrots plus burnt pita points. All of these issues were stated to the sever who giggled & walked away. No offer to correct or improve the problems. The service sucked! The food was lacking. I love the location but certainly won't be back to waste any more of my money here.

In college, we used to go almost every Tuesday. There can be a pretty long wait, but grab a beer and relax at the bar or outside. The wings are really good. They offer lots of flavors. And the best part is that on Tuesdays you get 2 for 1 or buy one get one free - well it's actually buy 12 get 12 free.

The Wing Cafe as it is now called at this location totally redeemed itself in our last visit. We had quit going because of the ridiculously soggy wings. On a whim we decided to try it again and were thrilled with our choice! The wings were perfectly crisp, the sauces flavorful and the service great too! We will definitely be back! I just hope they can continue this level of quality on Tuesday nights. On Tuesdays they offer 2 for 1 specials on wings, buy 12 get 12 free!
