Good food!

Eggspectation has great breakfasts. You may have to wait to be seated but it's worth the wait. Dinner there is awesome as well. Don't skip their cocktails. They are the best.

This was my first time here, and what a great experience! The food was fee good, but our server Tommy A. was outstanding. Have been a server and trainer of servers for 12 years, it was nice to see someone who understood how to be on top of a table, yet not be imposing. Exceptional service! The food was also... More

It was nice that they were able to seat us in the back room and provide us with separate checks. I got an omelet and it was tasty. I do like their fried potatoes that come with it. We would go back!!

If you want a little more upscale from inop, this is the place to go. They all kinds of omelettes and egg dishes as you would expect. But they also other breakfast dishes well. The decor is nice and the wait staff can be hit or miss.

Nice atmosphere but loud and bustling. Shrimp Wrap was hot and reasonably tasty. Fry portion was small for the money.

If this were my first time dining at this restaurant my review would have been harsh and a 2 star rating. But I love this place and will forgive this time. In fact I have held several breakfast meetings in the private room and take many clients for lunch here. I will, however, mention the two issues and vent here.... More

Have been here a number of times and usually for breakfast or brunch. Love the variety of dishes and all are fresh and delicious. The fruit smoothies are a nice healthy addition also.
