Absolutely great food and very generous portions. Exceptionally friendly and attentive staff. This is a "go back" place.

I have been to this restaurant several time in the past. This visit was extremely disappointing. They only had two servers who had to wait table, bus table, and running the cash resister. It took us over 40 minutes to place our orders. The food...was ok. It would not recommend this restaurant until Covid 19 passes and they can get adequate staff.

Although I enjoyed the homemade corn beef hash breakfast and the server was very good this restaurant did not social distance their customers as the restaurant was very empty, and could have easily done so. And, the do NOT take credit cards which makes me...suspicious about businesses that only take cash.More

We always go here for a hot breakfast. Continental breakfast is fine, but always looking for a HOT egg, toast etc. Great food, great service and we make this an annual stop. Highly recommended. Oh,,, CLOSED on 'Thursdays. We kept forgetting that. LOL

Really impressed with the service at this popular breakfast house, especially Dawnette our favorite waitress. She is very friendly and attentive. The hostess is also exceptional. We ate breakfast here 3 days in a row and loved it. I had the Lobster Benedict, Corned Beef...Hash and Sausage Gravy over Biscuits. All meals were very good. We eat here when we visit in May and September. All the waitresses are very good.More

It's an unusual year for restaurants and service industry in general, the Egg and I is doing it right!. Social distancing, prompt service, constant cleaning and excellent food. The lobster eggs benedict was one of the best my dining companion had ever had(and she's tried...them at several locations). I had french toast which did not disappoint. Prompt service by wait staff while following current guidelines for Covid. During our visit on 9/8 we noticed Lisa, she was the hardest working person-I thought for sure she was the owner. When asked she reported she wasn't the owner, just doing her job. She was cleaning menus, setting up tables, opening outside dining area, providing direction to the wait staff-she was a one woman dynamo!More

I believe so but I am not 100% certain. I would suggest calling the Egg & I directly to be totally certain.

We now have gluten free bread on hand. Used for breakfast sandwiches, French toast egg platters or omelettes. There is a small upcharge for the gluten free bread.
