The food here is always good, however for the price I think it is generally a poor deal. Normally someone in our party always leaves hungry or feels ridiculous for paying so much money for a simple meal. They have a very large selection of food including sandwiches and other types of food beyond the normal brunch fair. If you... More

We had a horrible experience at another restaurant last night. This place made up for it! The atmosphere is awesome, our server Casey was on top of things, and the food was AMAZING! I have Celiac Disease so the selection of gluten free options is a breath of fresh air! I got the meal with grilled chicken, eggs, potatoes, and... More

Food is all very good now. They have definitely improved, specially if you come when they are not jammed. Had a tasty shrimp, chicken, and linguini alfredo. Wife had a b-l-t with egg on a tasty bagel. Both very good plates.

I was so excited to find this restaurant! I was on the annual girls adventure with my Goddaughter who is a true Egg enthusiast and she was delighted with her breakfast! The service was good and the choices were amazing! Looking forward to going back!

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.
