We like Egg Harbor in Downers' Grove for one main reason - their outside area is pet friendly. The menu has a wide variety, the food is good (love the door county chicken salad and

A busy Sunday morning contributed to a delay in obtaining the attention of our server. Extensive menu with a large variety of egg dishes, along with specialty pancakes and wraps.

Egg Harbor is a good breakfast spot, but nothing special. Relatively small portions and the waiters and waitresses were stretched to their limit. My water was never refilled.

Food is good, however, a lot of the items taste the same. Breakfast crepes are really good - and the salads are great.

This place has great food and a fun country environment. I have heard people raving and raving about it so I decided to check it out. I would say it's above average but not outrageously amazing like others were speaking of it.

We eat here almost every weekend for breakfast. Great food with a wide variety of options. A lot of healthy options along with the regular yummy fare. The staff always recognizes us and we love seeing their friendly faces. Always a pleasant experience!

This is our favorite place in DG for breakfast. Always very good food, always excellent service. On the weekends, it is always busy. We have tried many of the breakfast entrees and have never been disappointed. My husband's favorite (in the fall) is the combo with the pumpkin pancakes. When my daughter and her husband are in town, this is... More

We have breakfast quite regularly at Egg Harbor (there are several close to where I live, but Downers Grove is the closest) and have never had a bad meal. Food and service are always excellent. There are healthy choices and not-so-healthy choices and you can completely customize your breakfast. Prices are competitive but I would happily pay more for consistent... More

Clearly better than Naperville despite the same menu. Busy but extremely efficient. Very well staffed and service is quick and friendly. Coffee pot is on the table for extra cups. Traditional breakfast only $5.99- eggs over easy, their home fries, sausage and bread. Coffee $2.49. Third time here without a single concern.
