This place is always great; the quality of the food and service is top notch. From scramblers to skillets to amazing French toast, this is the breakfast spot. Only complaint is the cooks are challenged with making eggs over medium 😖....but overall “great”.!!

Visited for lunch with a friend. Had the 1/2 sandwich, soup, salad combo. The Door County Chicken Salad sandwich was delicious and the Chicken Tortilla soup was very good. The service was outstanding. Would recommend this restaurant. Clean, well managed restaurant.

The food was very tasty with generous portions. The coffee was excellent and the wait for a table was not long at all.

Compared to quite a few Geneva restaurants Egg Harbor is the best we found. I just wish we'd found it before trying the rest. Excellent service and properly cooked eggs and breakfast items

While in Geneva we ate a Egg Harbor both mornings. I’ve eaten at them before and this was of the same standard. I got the Eggceptional Skillet and then the Meat Lovers Skillet and both were very good. I’ll come back next trip.

Three in our party - ordered blueberry pancakes, Belgian waffle, and the Italian French Toast. My waffle was good, and my wife's pancakes were good, but my son's French toast was the overall winner! Service was great!
