I want to start by saying the service was fast and friendly. The food wasn't so great. I had biscuits and gravy because I had read a review that said the gravy was awesome. Well it's not even close to being good in my opinion. It was way to runny and not much flavor. My eggs were okay. Then there's... More

I visit family in Tyler every once in a while and always go to the Egg and I. I think that it is great. My favorite was the fried chicken omelette. BUT they have dropped it from the menu. So I have moved on to the Egg-Ceptional Omelette. Lots of calories but worth it.

I asked for a recommendation for a breakfast restaurant and was encouraged to go to The Egg and I. The food was okay, but we thought it was VERY overpriced. I had Wisconsin Skillet with sausage. The sausage seems to be spiced with rosemary, which I like, but I got terrible heartburn which may have been from the spices. The... More

With it being the last day of our stay in Tyler we wanted something different than the continental breakfast offered by our hotel. We found his restaurant on trip advisor, and we were not disappointed! The atmosphere was cozy, the staff was friendly, and the food was delicious! This place is a must next time we visit!

I have been to The Egg & I Restaurant several times and it has always been packed with a waiting line average of about 15 to 30 minutes. The menu has a large selection and the food is tasty. The service was a little slow but the server did as well as could be expected.

Stopped here on a trip through Tyler, decided completely by the name of the place. Am glad we did. The food was outstanding, the portions large and the staff was friendly. Arrived shortly before closing - the staff didn't bat an eye, they were as good/polite as if it was the start of the day. Only open for breakfast and... More
