Good food... OK service

A group of us went for lunch on a Friday. It wasn't busy but service seemed very slow... took forever! Which isn't good for lunch break from work. The restaurant was nice and clean and nicely decorated and the food was tasty. Menu was unique with many dishes that looked amazing and that made it... read more

Last year I posted a review about the restaurant known as Eggspectation and posed the question then, "Which came first, th chicken or the egg?" Well I still don't have that answer to the question but I can tell you that Eggspectation know something about eggs as well as chicken, steak, salmon, lobster, burgers, pancakes, waffles, drinks from the bar,...

The food was ok, but nothing terrific. The service was poor. I might give it another shot, but I was disappointed. I arrived for a mid morning meal and the staff seemed to be more interested in talking to each other about their weekend plans than taking care of their customers. My waiter never checked on me to see if... More

Upscale attempt to vary the breakfast menu. There were some interesting offerings, but sometimes you just want breakfast

Service is extremely slow. Food is alright. Don't go here with kids. Takes too long. Waitresses don't do a good job. Over priced.

The menu is extensive, and perhaps sticking to breakfast/eggs makes sense here! It is clean and comfortable to eat here..

I ordered the Huevos Rancheros, and it's one of the best HRs I've eaten, and I've eaten countless. The salsa was the best. Fresh, with crisp onions and off-the-vine tomatoes, it complemented the unusual selection of pulled pork. My wife had an omelet, also with the salsa, and she was equally impressed. We found Eggspection on-line, after looking at restaurants... More

Not a bad place but average. The 1st time I went here, the food was really good but the last 2 times, it has been average, I don't know if the menu changed or what but something did. Food is okay now, just okay, but hoping it gets back to where it was on visit #1, still, I won't be... More

If you crave variety and new taste sensations. If you love eggs in their amazing varieties of preparation. If you enjoy large portions. If these are true of you. Look no further.Eggspectation delivers on all fronts. Go and enjoy the friendly service and amazing combinations.

I eat here at least 3 times a month, and usually it's great. Today was not. And most surprising, it was a manager waiting on me (his first name starts with a T). The coffee was luke warm, and he never asked. He made the bloody sloppily so it was all over the outside of the glass. The entree came... More
