Was not hard to find at all (there's a big golden egg sticking out of the top of the building; hence the name). The customer service was attentive and courteous. As soon as we walked in the door we were greeted with enthusiasm that seemed very genuine. The food was great and cheaper than most breakfast venues in Myrtle Beach.... More

We loved the Golden Egg so much we ate breakfast there two days in a row! There service is wonderful and the food is amazing. THE BEST biscuits and gravy I've ever had! Wish our trip was longer so we could eat there again :)

Though we had passed The Golden Egg many times during our visits to the seashore, we never had the occasion to stop in. Now I wish we had stopped by sooner! The restaurant is much larger than it looks from the outside. The interior is bright, cheerful and very clean. I ordered the bacon and cheese omelet with 2 pancakes... More

Had breakfast two days in a row at this homestyle diner and both days were excellent! Party of three and a party of 5 - service was fast, coffee stayed full & food was really good. Fantastic freshness, great staff and homey feeling. Place was packed so if you sleep in...prepare to wait for a seat!

We came for breakfast and the food was very good. The selection was large. The service was very good I didn't feel left out nor overwhelmed. The quality of the food was very good. We will go back the next time we are in the area.

Have visited the Golden Egg three times in less than a week. Want to try some other breakfast spots but this place is too good to pass up. Delicious omelets and the breakfast bowl is a winner as well. Ample servings and quick, friendly service. From the hostess to all three of the waitresses all have been friendly and welcoming.
