Good place for business breakfast. Rarely crowded on weekday. Overwhelming selection on the menu, and everything I've had is good. Baked beans are a little weird tasting, however. Fruit bowl is fresh and plentiful. Nice ambience.

Why pay so much for two eggs toast and potatoes that are nothing to write home about when there are diners in the area with better breakfasts and way cheaper--- my EGGSPECTATION is for good taste and value when ordering breakfast. Service is always slow, i have to ask for simple things like ketchup, and wait staff is not informed... More

Food not so great; could barely hear, floor looked dirty, not wort the ratings in our opinion. Popular and very crowded but I'm not sure why.

Be forewarned, this is not a place to go for breakfast if you are on a tight budget. That said, the menu covers a wide range of common and not so common egg dishes and other fare appropriate for all-day dining. I came to the restaurant for breakfast and chose the Classic Eggs Benedict, which were excellent. Had I been... More

Stopped in here on a Saturday night late--9:00 p.m.ish. We were hungry. The hostess had to read us some of the entries on the menu because we forgot our glasses. She was very sweet and recommended several appetizers that we actually ended up getting--they were delicious. The fried calamari was OK but tasted a bit fishy--like they had been fried... More

I had very low expectations about this place. First of all because it's a chain and it has a low rate on yelp. We ordered the lobster & grits and eggs with steak. Both were average. The service is terrible. It takes forever and our server was not attentive. The staff looks very disorganized.

The food was ok. A bit expensive. I really liked the potatoes. I ordered Chesapeake Benedict and my eggs were way undercooked. The waitress asked me how well I wanted them done but the chef still did not cook them well. We also didn't get our drinks until after the food came. The manager that night was very accommodating and... More

My husband and I visited the Silver Spring restaurant to get a quick bite to eat. We got there about 40 minutes before close. Perhaps that had something to do with the quality of the food. I ordered the veggie burger and fries and my husband a BLT and fries. This should have been a simple, quick meal with little... More

Food great, but spendier than it should be. Service abysmal. Not that they're not trying but they're way understaffed. Don't expect anyone to check on you, or refill your coffee. And you'll sit forever waiting for a check... to the point that you even contemplate leaving without paying. (And in case you're wondering... yes we paid.) Their signature smoothies all... More

The service was very good. Our waitress should have been working at a swankier restaurant! We had mimosa's and grapefruit juice with salad and muffins. It was tasty, perhaps on another visit we will wade deeper into the menu, especially the 'happy hour menu'. This was my second visit, her 7th. It has a nice downtown location with plenty of... More
