There's a reason they're always packed

We are locals. We love this place. Huge menu with healthy options. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The food is served hot and is always delicious. Well Worth the Wait. We've never waited more than 15 minutes for a seat.

When you want good " home " meal for the morning that's the place to go. Sitting time was 15 minutes in a busy Sunday morning. Family oriented place. Ellen / waitres/ was very friendly , very nice with a smile on her face/ we'll be back today:)

Having tried multiple local places for breakfast, and being wowed each time we had high hopes. We were not disappointed, a bit of a wait, but nothing terrible, and we were a party of four adults and two kids. Waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious, even my picky husband had no complaints. Very positive experience and I definitely... More

We stop here every year when we get to the beach. Great local restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch. All breakfast foods, sandwiches, salads are good. The service is fast and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. They are open 6a-2p so make sure you get there before they close.

My family of six loved this place. The hostess and wait staff were all so friendly. I felt like a regular on my first visit. We had pancakes, omelets, country fried steak , eggs florentine, and home fries. All of it was delicious. We'll be back next year!

The food was good. The line may be huge, but it goes fast. There were two of us, and we almost didn't go in when we saw the line, but we were seated probably within l0 minutes on a Sunday morning. I believe they close about 2 p.m. so get there early.

friendly staff, fast service. most locals have their own coffee cups in a cupboard at the entrance of the dining room. everyone seems to know everyone else. if you know about killer chipped beef on toast, order it here- its the real deal. great home fries that the chef will cook crisp. so good, I went back the next day.

I frequent this establishment several times a week & have nothing but outstanding comments about The Golden Egg & their employees...especially Beth. She waits on me often & she is courteous, polite & very friendly. If one gets your drinks while your server is assisting another table you are not being ignored....that's just excellent teamwork!!! The prices are very reasonable... More
