I went here because I saw that they had won BEST of ATL in creative loafing. I had a great experience and all the stylists seemed very nice. My old barber retired so I am looking for a new one. Emylie cut my hair and she did a great job. I will be back.

I bring my two sons here. We used to go to discount places, but with their hectic teenage school schedules, I needed a place we could get an appointment. This place is expensive for minor hair cuts but I just need the convenience at this point of our lives. My boys like the fact they are not covered in hair, rushed or knicked any more. We have had very good hair cuts with the exception of just once and that stylist is no longer with them. Just a side note, it is very comfortable for me to wait as they offer refreshments and have comfy chairs with free wifi so I can get some work done while I wait.

Roosters is a nice barbershop, offering all those services that have been forgotten by the cheap chains (hot shave, free shampoo, etc), added some for the 'new' man (waxing, foot details, etc), and tagged on some nice bonuses (free drinks, free neck massage, etc). All the offerings are well done, but some are obviously not requested often and may be on the menu just to give it some bulk. Sadly, haircuts can be hit-or-miss depending on the 'stylist' you get. Never a 'terrible' cut, but may not be the best either. So, if you're just here for a haircut, the saying, "You can't polish a turd," will probably describe your experience. In other words, all the extras won't make up for the so-so cut. That brings me to the price-point. Roosters doesn't hide their prices, so the sticker shock hits when you view their website. And, as I said, the haircut may not be worth it (you'll probably get similar quality at a 'Great Cuts' type place, but at least you'll save $20). However, the prices for the other options are reasonable, and they are worthwhile, if just for an occasional splurge.

I just went for my appointment only to find out the person to cut it is no longer there. Third time I've been there that either 1)person no longer worked there 2)lost my appointment and in no cases did I ever receive a phone call. I've had it, I'm done. No patience for people that don't respect you enough to give you a simple phone call. It's SUPPOSED to be a service business after all.

Although I could probably go elsewhere for a less expensive haircut, I look forward to my trips to Roosters. Once I had a less-than-great haircut, but I think that was one stylist. My recent haircuts have been great. If I could give the service six stars I would. They're very courteous, have worked to fit me in when I needed an unplanned haircut (though I recommend reservations), and really pamper their customers.

I sent my husband to Roosters as a special gift for our anniversary. He loved it!! He said he felt like finally there is a place to go to actually enjoy getting a haircut. The staff was a huge help as I tried to figure out which services to get and set up the appointment. Now he's a regular customer, and I know what to get him for every special occasion!

Moved to the Marietta area about 3 years ago and have been going to Rooster's ever since. I was looking for a place where they would take their time with my hair, had very consistent service and delivered good value. Rooster's is definitely it! Have never had a bad haircut, the staff is very friendly, plus the store has a great upscale ambiance. Most importantly I never feel like I am rushed or just a number like at the lower end chains. Make sure you try the wet shave -- I do one every month as a treat to myself!!!

I've grown to really appreciate Roosters. For years I went on the cheap and went other places that were less expensive. I've found that going to Roosters has definably been work a few more dollars. My wife likes my haircuts better and so do I. More importantly, my beard looks really sharp after getting it cut there. I've come out of some other places looking terrible. I'll continue returning.

I was getting a haircut at Rooster's Barber Shop. During the haircut I noticed a disposable razor sitting on the sink with a big glob of shaving cream hanging off it, the razor had obviously been used. At the end of the haircut, the barber rinsed the used razor off in the sink with water and attempted to shave the back of my neck with it. This was NOT an electric razor, it was a disposable razor used to shave ones face. When I realized what was happening I asked the barber if it was a new razor and she paused and said "I'll get one." At that point I told her she did not have to shave my neck. I was very shaken by the incident, I wanted to leave as soon as possible. I paid and got out. I called the business the next day and spoke with the manager and owner. I was given a refund but I feel what Rooster's did was unsanitary and dangerous to say the least.

I got a decent hair cut the first time I went but the place has gone downhill. In a year I've had to bounce from person to person because their staff keeps quitting. For my last three appointments Rooster's messed up their reservations. In once case they cancelled my appointment and in another my only option was another stylist who this time didn't listen to what I wanted and was extremely rude. I later had to go somewhere else to get my hair fixed. I won't be back.

After years of suffering through lousy haircuts at "sports-themed" chains that seemed to cater to 15-year-olds, I wandered into Rooster's looking for something different. And boy, did I find it. I need a barber who can correctly cut my wire-straight fine hair. Anna did such a great job, I'm making her my permanent barber. It's slightly more expensive than the aforementioned chains, but it's worth it.

If you're the type of guy that likes a beer handed to you with a friendly face when you walk into a barber shop, decked out in dark wood and leather chairs, this is your place. The price of the cut is going to be more than a barber shop but less than a salon. The service can't be beat. I went with a few buddies and had a great time.

I've been going to a lower end haircut establishment for years. I figured it was worth a try and see what a higher end place was like. I have to admit, I was sold. Everything from coffee when I entered to the shoe polish, tv's, back and neck rub, and the haircut were great. For once, I didn't feel rushed when getting a haircut. I also asked to see if they could give me a new style and they succeeded. Coupon:I've been going to a lower end haircut establishment for years.

It's not just a barber shop. It's like a hair salon for men! :). Before Roosters, I thought they only have those in New York. If you enjoy fine dining instead of fast-food, you'll enjoy Roosters.

I am sold on the concept and quality they provide. Always friendly staff and haircut is always solid, paying attention to requests. The add-ons such as shoe shine, hot towel, shampoo and massage that come with the haircut as well as option of a cold frothy beverage pretty much make it unmatched. I have been a repeat customer for over a year.
