We have eaten at the Egg on several trips. It is one of the reasons we love to go to Portsmouth. The staff is great and super efficient. Restaurants could take a lesson from the way this group operates. One person takes you order, but you feel like everyone in the restaurant is there to serve you and make your meal the best experience they can.

Of course you can find a seat, but because most in town have forever recognized this as one of the greatest places to get well prepared, and often innovative, menu choices, you might have a short wait for a seat. Don't miss out on a great seacoast experience - just wait.

I have been going here for 2-3 years In the last 6 months I feel the food is still good but not as good as it was. The portions have become smaller and the service is still decent but has slipped a little.
