Great breakfast

They serve breakfast and lunch, however I would say breakfast is their specialty. Great service and a pretty good atmosphere. They do go the extra mile-there was a computer snafu and they gave me a small discount for my trouble which they didn't have to do, but it did not go unnoticed. Parking... read more

Egg Harbor has excellent food, and warm, cozy decor. It's 1/2 block from the Downers Grove train station.

We stopped in here on our way out of town while visiting the area. The restaurant has a lot of personality and staff was very friendly. Food and choices were good and the coffee was great (Intelligensia coffee). Our server was Marcus, and he was very friendly and helpful. Will go again when in the area and ask for Marcus!

Love every dish. We have been to Egg Harbor for years and just love the place! You can even have lunch for dinner which I love sometimes. I have been here over 50 times.

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Food was prepared to my specifications and was very fresh. I was able to trade a salad for my potatoes with my omelet (made with egg whites) and they even had wheat English muffins. I was waiting for a friend that got stuck in traffic and they still seated me and put no pressure on... More

I recently visited Downers Grove for the first time and chose this restaurant based off the reviews on Trip Advisor. I would give it an A+ all around. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was very diverse and delicious. We came with a wide variety of ages and everyone left beyond satisfied. There was a good mix... More

I've been overseas for 5 years. This was the American breakfast I needed to come home to. Blueberry pancakes with blueberry compote, two eggs fried over easy, four pieces of bacon, flavored coffee of the day including a complimentary to-go cup. A huge menu including gluten free options as well. Very polite and helpful staff.

Egg Harbor is a small chain of restaurants in the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Georgia. The food is of very good quality, and I enjoy the sunny, country decor of roosters and chickens everywhere. The menu is large, and you can substitute healthy ingredients (eggs white, skim milk etc) if you are watching your waistline. I always enjoy the... More
