Title says it all. The food and latte were both amazing. The gentlemen greeting folks was very friendly and my waitress was great. Great experience - nice relaxed feel. Will be back

Egg Harbor across from the train stop in Arlington Heights is always a treat for breakfast and lunch.

Met family members at Egg Harbor several weeks ago for my first indoor restaurant dining in about 15 months. Waitstaff were friendly and the food was excellent. I had the lobster scramble which was pretty awesome. The only issue we had was that we had...to wait for six out of our party of seven to be present before they would seat us so most of us had to stand around for about ten minutes in the doorway area. Given that there were plenty of available tables, that seemed odd to us.More

Thank you to Todd and his team for providing me with a delicious hot breakfast this morning! I have missed our Sunday breakfasts since the shut down. Arlington Heights has the best staff and I hope they are all doing well and can’t wait until...they reopen. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!! SuzanneMore

We frequently meet friends and bring family here for great breakfasts and lunches. The sandwiches as well as the egg dishes are always special along with the accompanying salads and sometimes potatoes. My husband likes all the waffles and pancakes too! : )

Excellent first visit. The available seating is fantastic, considering it looks much smaller from the outside. The food is awesome, and a really good value cost wise. Our server did a great job, and was very friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is consistently good but not great. Very busy on the weekends, especially after 1030am. It’s a big restaurant and they do turn tables quickly. The service was good and the prices are reasonable. Parking can be a bit of a pain when it’s...busy, but easy if you don’t mind waking from the parking garage. We had multiple different omelettes, eggs Benedict and shakshuka and the consensus was it was all tasty.More

Went with my family and menu has something for everyone. We are really happy that we were able to be seated right away. Also, like the additional seating that was added awhile ago.

Have been going here since they opened. Had the Door County, way less chicken salad than ever before. Potatoes were hard, not cooked. Only saw our server to order and give us the check. Very disappointing!More

The place is so cute. It's a place for family and friends to feel at home. The food is freshly prepared. If you love eggs scrambled or omelletes, this is the place to discover. The servers are so nice. They also sell cute cups.

The Egg Harbor in Arlington Heights expanded several years ago so those of you who found it too cramped or too small should give it another try. Unfortunately, they have also changed their menu and taken off some old favorites. While I know that it's...good to keep innovating and some of their new items are quite good, I still miss some of their old signature dishes! Coffee is decent, and their fresh orange and orange-strawberry juice is delicious. I appreciate the fact that they actually prepare the eggs as you like them - as someone who has a visceral reaction (not in a good way) to under-done eggs, this is important!More

Food is good. They serve breakfast and lunch. I manly go for lunch. Their soups (seasonal) are good. I like the salads with fruit and the chicken sandwiches.
