Good food, good location

Have been to Eggspectation several times ... always good food ... a bit loud when crowded, but worth it!

We had heard good things and read some good reviews, so we decided to try it for Sunday breakfast. Since we arrived early, we were seated immediately - for some reason, however, our table was on a high traffic aisle when booths were open all over. The atmosphere is interesting and we enjoyed the way the restaurant is decorated. The... More

The variety on the menu is huge, staff very good with explaining options & recommendations. Don't expect a real espresso when you ask for one though! Lobster grits are divine, eggs done perfectly, parking available freely, beautiful surroundings!

Always enjoy having breakfast here and the meal is consistently well prepared and yummy. Only drawback, especially on Sunday is there is a long wait. But, that is explainable by the popularity.

Upfront I have to say the breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day and I go out of my way to different places to try their breakfast. The breakfast here is better than average the presentation is always upscale with additional types of fruits added to the plate. Eggs over easy are eggs over easy regardless where... More

We have been there before for breakfast but this was our first dinner trip. We love the breakfast choices; a huge variation on routine omelets and other things. The dinner menu was more run of the mill but food was good. Service was so so. Would recommend it more for breakfast.

We visited this place twice before writing a review. Our first trip, I ordered the Eggstravaganza - a basic breakfast of eggs, choice of meat, french toast and potatoes. I was disappointed in how boring the dish was. The eggs and bacon were fine but I've had better french toast at cheaper places. My husband ordered the Smoked Salmon Benny... More

Food is good...not great. Service is hit or miss. HoCo is short on breakfast spots so this place stays crowded on weekends but it mostly because there's no where else to go but Bob Evans.

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...
