“Overpriced eggs!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I am still trying to figure out what is the fuzz about Eggspectation. It has been one of the most disappointing experiences we've had. Prices are outrageous, food is not better than what you can make at home (really) and the service is basically absent from the picture. You are better off spending your money in a nice brunch at a 5 star hotel.

“Eggspectation Exceeds Expectations”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Don't be confused by the name, this restaurant serves more than eggs. Can be very crowded, as locals love it. Nice feature, you can have breakfast anytime. Great atmosphere, but can be quite noisy. Parking lot fills quickly. Just off Maryland 100, east of Ellicott City. Great for a group or for a family with children.

“Uneggspected”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

We were first seated at a table that faced the kitchen and it was very very loud. It sounded like the cooks were slamming the pans down so we very nicely asked if we wanted to move to a booth where it was not loud . We moved and was great. Food and service were excellent. We had a boca eggs Benedict and the French toast with strawberries and banana caramelized on top .we would definitely go back.

“One of few good places for eggs”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Maryland lacks in good food. Eggspectation brings Maryland up a notch. Waiting is ridiculous. They should accept reservations instead of forcing throngs of people to wait.
