I recently ate lunch at Blue's Egg in Milwaukee. I had very high expectations because of the fact that this restaurant is ranked #3 out of all the restaurants in Milwaukee and several friends and colleagues of mine have raved about this place. My high expectations were met and I was very satisfied! This is clearly a very busy, popular restaurant and it feels like "the place to be"! I came for lunch on a weekday, right at about 12:00. The hostess said I could sit at the counter for immediate seating, but I always prefer a table. I said I was willing to wait for a table. She kindly added me to the list. I had to wait maybe 5 minutes before being told that my table was ready, even after being told it would be a 10-15 minute wait. I was pleasantly surprised! I got seated at a table in the back room of the restaurant, which was kind of nice. It seemed quieter and more subdued back there, away from the action. My waiter Peter was very friendly and personable. He clearly knows the menu inside and out! He asked if I had ever dined at Blue's before and I said I hadn't. He told me all about the restaurant and what they are famous for. How nice! I decided to order the pulled ham omelet (pulled ham is one of their specialties here). I got whole wheat toast with it, and a side of fresh fruit. The omelet was fantastic! It was one of the hugest omelets I have ever gotten in a restaurant, and it was absolutely delicious! I also loved the fresh fruit assortment of cantaloupe, pineapple, grapes, and banana slices. This was a healthy and delicious option. Peter checked in often and was attentive. I absolutely loved my meal here and the atmosphere, and I will definitely return and recommend. Blue's is only open for breakfast and lunch, offering a breakfast menu all day, in addition to a lunch menu beginning at 11:00 AM. The only negative I encountered was having difficulty finding a parking spot when I arrived because it gets so crowded here. I feel that they need more parking because I had to circle the lot 4 times before getting a spot--and I only got it because a car left. That is not enough to lower my rating for this place, and it lived up to all the hype! I will be back!
