Love this place. Everybody in the family loves this place. Terrific selection and all well done. It can get busy on the weekends, though so be aware. It is worth a wait - definitely better than Bob Evans up the street. Dinners are also good and normally no wait. Deals on kids meals too.

Amazing diversity of egg centric dishes and truly delicious. A most unusual and great place to dine be it breakfast. Lunch or dinner. Expect the Best and you won't be disappointed.

You can't go wrong ordering. It's all great. Both breakfast and main courses are all great. Cool ambience as well. Cozy fireplace in wintertime

Eggs and menus. As it says, menus with eggs are good. If you are really up for eggs, then it may not be the best for you. Not cheap prices.

Eggspectation has happy hour in their bar area everyday from 3pm-7pm. They offer a great variety of appetizers and drink specials. My group shared the chicken quesadillas, mini crab cakes, mild and BBQ buffalo wings and firecracker shrimp. The appetizers are priced between $5-$7. My group also ordered grits, turtle cheesecake, 2 cocktails and apple juice. Our bill totaled around... More

Lives up to the "eggspectations," if you will (sorry, everyone probably cracks that yolk). At any rate, delicious crepes, killer Red Velvet cake, and a great atmosphere. A little pricey, though.

I love this restaurant. You would think it's just breakfast food but it's not! Quite the variety on the menu but if you order a breakfast dish you won't be disappointed.

I had the corned beef hash dish (this was a breakfast meal) and it was pretty good. The service was OK and the pricing was a little high. The restaurant was very noisy, particularly for breakfast. All in all, it was OK.

We were very pleased with our breakfast. Decided to go there on a whim, because it's near my house. I have to admit, we were impressed. The food was amazing! I had the Huevos Rancheros,and as a native Texan I grew up eating this dish. It was everything I expected and more! My girlfriend had the Smoked Salmon Benny, and... More
