My daughter suggested this place when I visited her, and I had no idea what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise, as the menu was large and varied, the food very good, and the service was also good. The turkey club sandwich was large and had a lot of turkey. Good coffee, but the Chocolate Decadence cake was good, but not as good as some I've had. I would return when again in the area.

The Lobster Grits w/shrimp and Chipped Beef Gravy were prepared to perfection and served right off the grill. Loved it and yes, both dishes were mine, I was a bit hungry!

We dropped in on a lark because we had heard a lot of good reports. What a wonderful surprise that the menu offered a lot more than egg/breakfast selections (which we always enjoy). We wound up with three meals, one a sandwich selection, another a chicken dinner selection, and the third a steak and fries. We thought all three were great! The wait-staff was courteous and efficient, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We'll certainly plan to revisit to enjoy their breakfast selections. It's definitely worth a try!

Spacious and gracious. Fun decor. A huge variety on the menu. Special mention for an Appetizer that I've since tried to make at home and eat occasionally for dinner: begin with a slice of crunchy toasted French bread, layer slices of Brie cheese and melt in toaster oven, add slices of peeled apples, top with crumbled pecans, toasted or not, candied or not. Delucious, but of course it tastes better served to you at Eggspectation..Great place for brunch.

Visited this location on a Sunday after a positive experience at a different location. Horrible service for a slow period. Had to ask multiple time for refills, condiments, silverware, and napkins. Food was good but over priced. Initial cup of coffee and two refills tasted burnt and like dirt. Coffee ranked as the "worst" I have tasted.
