I am at Eggspectation at least 3 times a month for business meetings and client meals. The food is always good and the service is top notch. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner, all well. It's a tad loud, but then many restaurants are these days. I will keep going back.

We have been to this restaurant many times and the food and service and surroundings are always great. If you have never been to this place, go, and you will be very happy. First class!

I have been to this restaurant many many times. I enjoy the unique and creative menu, excellent service, fun atmosphere, and FRESH food. It can be a bit loud which is the only part I don't especially like but it is high energy and it is a minor thing since everything else is right on. I have taken many business... More

Eggspectations has a very extensive menu. A little much for me but it looks like there is something for everyone. I ordered the Reuben & was not disappointed. Just enough dressing & saurkraut! Loved it. Great service, consistent quality. Highly recommend!

Went here with a friend and her 2 year old. The place is cluttered with eclectic decorations, but in a good way that creates a fun vibrant atmosphere. The menu is huge! It was really quite difficult to pick what I wanted to eat. I finally choose the Bayou Benedict and it was just perfect. I loved the combination of... More

This unexpected treasure in an otherwise nondescript strip mall at the borderline of Columbia and Ellicott City. has so many menu choices PLUS daily specials that no one will be disappointed. From numerous creative breakfast items (thus the name 'Eggs-pectations') to luscious hamburgers to crepes to full steak dinners, there is nothing left out. And you can't miss the showcase... More

My husband, friend and I went to Eggspectation in Columbia MD (on Snowden Pkwy) for brunch. The restaurant was very nice. The service was also above par. The food...well...it was ok. We ordered a fruit platter to start. The sliced melons were a bit bland and could have been a bit more ripe. The brunch meals were ok. My friend... More

My family visited Eggspectations in Ellicott City in May. We were a group of 8. We asked for a table and we're told it would be 15 minutes. 45 minutes later we inquired how things were going and got a rude response from the hostess. The whole 45 minutes we were staring at an empty table for 8. We inquired... More

This is one of those places always on my standby list for a great meal, especially when I'm craving breakfast food. It's a diverse menu, with something for everybody. The kids will love it, foodies will love it. The interesting thing about Eggspectations is that on weekday mornings the place is full of business breakfast meetings at every table. It's... More
