I REALLY enjoyed this breakfast stop. I took my youngest daughter and we opted to sit outside to eat. The waitress went above and beyond during our meal. I had the meaty skillet while my daughter opted for mac and cheese to start her day. Both of us liked our meals a lot. The waitress even brought me a cup... More

This review has been a long time coming! We've been going to EHC for the past 3 years- every Saturday morning (sometimes we switch it up) and it's our FAVORITE family time. They have a consistently good menu. Great quality food and huge portions for the value. We come with little kids often, so the only down side is the... More

Love to go here to breakfast with extended family. Food and service is great. They have Gluten Free options and are aware of concerns around needing Gluten Free food. Servings are so big, we have plenty of left overs.

All four people in our group liked our meals. I especially appreciate the option to substitute sides, our waiter mentioned several alternatives to the standard potatoes on the side of my excellent "Bacado" omelet. I chose cheese grits, which were very creamy and well cooked. Lots of interesting breakfast entrees. The coffee is good, they leave a full pot on... More

This is our favorite breakfast place. We have even made reservations here for Mother's Day .At times the wait can be long but it is worth it.

Egg Harbor in Wheaton is always consistent both with food and service. We love that you can order a combo combining eggs with pancakes or french toast Their specials are always yummy. Our favorite is the cinnamon roll french toast.

Met two colleagues there for a 6:30am breakfast meeting. We were not alone but the place was not filled either. Coffee came early and since they left a carafe we could refill on our own schedule. The food was good and when two of us three asked for substitutes, it wasn't a problem. Parking can be had in their lot... More

Like the title says, the food is very good. They don't do substitutes well though, seem to want to charge to not give me something kind of expensive in the entre in exchange for something surely cheaper. Kind of a rip in this case. The waiters are over worked, where are they not? But the biggest complaint is it's quite... More
