Visiting a friend in Kennesaw who suggested we visit to hear music on the square. Found parking, ate in local restaurant, would go back again when we are in the area.
The square is in excellent condition, the greenery and flowers were attractive, there is lots to see and do and we were impressed.

The Marietta Square is a lovely place to meander on a sunny day. The Square itself has lots of benches to sit on and people watch, and there are several nice little restaurants/bars including the Marietta Pizza Company, Sugar Cakes, Hemmingway's, and Thaicoon, our family's favorite Thai spot. There's also a nice wine shop close to the pizza joint. If you love antiques and "junque," you'll also find plenty to enjoy.

Its was okay. Not much to do. A few restaurants. One narly biker bar with plastic cups and such, a good pizza spot, and one notable sandwich type pub with a back court yard. The square has a museum and has some historical aspects but really not much happening. i think the new 200+ home neighborhood being built a block away will change the square over the next 5 years. New shops and bars will move in eventually.

This is a beautiful and historical area of Marietta. This area has great little unique shops and very interesting restaurants. If you happen to be in the area on a Saturday it is a very active area and fun to be a part of. There are benches and places to relax and do some people watching! This area was so beautiful that Sherman's troupes didn't burn it during the war!

Definitely needs a revamp. Have recently been to the square in Woodstock, and it's jumping. It seems to be a "go to spot". Marietta Square has a few nice, new restaurants, but the place right now is not a "happening" place. In the summer months, there are some fun concerts at Glover Park which are free, and a few festivals (food and art).
I feel that although it is a cute square with some nice shops around the park, the square is like a sleepy town square.
