Consistently good & a nice value

A regular place that we go, and it is consistently good. It has a nice atmosphere, extensive menu, and good service. It is quite reasonably priced, and the happy hour menu, both food and drinks is especially worth it.

The menu was interesting but not extensive for vegetarians. We had a voucher (Groupon?) that helped to defray costs, but the restaurant was just too expensive. If the food were outstanding, the prices might be more understandable, but I can get the same quality at cheaper places. One exception was a muffin we purchased; it was priced fairly for the...

I love Eggspectation. It's a little bit of a hike for us, but it's always well worth it in the end. Their hot chocolate and coffee selections are delicious, as are their smoothies. It's hard to go wrong with any one of those choices (I'm partial to the hot chocolate though). Out of their breakfast selections one of my favorites... More

Great service, bartenders are on point. Seats at the bar can be hard to find but the service is fine at the booths by the bar.

The waffles are 5 stars to start off.... The other breakfasts we had were all good but just beware it is really expensive. We spent about $70.00 for three of us at breakfast time.

I own a bar and was pleasantly surprised how good the food, the drinks and the service was on an average TUESDAY! The presentation was awesome and the atmosphere was nicely appointed. Never thought of going here for happy hour - but it ROCKS!

Went here after dropping my uncle off at the airport. The place was in a small shopping center with office buildings near by. The atmosphere was like a modern warehouse. The food was good I had buttermilk pancakes with potatoes. My mom had blue berry pancakes. The pancakes had a homemade look and taste. The potatoes had a nice flavor... More

I took my wife out for a date, which occurs way too infrequently. The service was fast and the food very enjoyable. Although it took quite some time to get the beer list and get a beer when it was ordered. Very nice waitress, but a bit forgetful when it came to my beer- maybe it was a sign that... More

Had a private room which was a challenge since the hostess couldn't tell me were they were. However it gave me an opportunity to walk around the bar several times in search of my friends. Friday happy hour scene seemed to be very happening and overflowing with people all chatting and having a great time. Once I arrived in our... More

Judging from the packed restaurant, the cool decor and the menu, we were prepared to enjoy a tasty breakfast. We were under impressed with our visit. The food was bland and overall was quite average. Worth a try if convenient and you don't have to wait. Otherwise, rest assured you're not missing anything great.
