If you have a choice egg harbor is worth the wait....if only for the home made strawberry jam and coffee to go (free of charge!!)

A bit pricey for breakfast, but a "sure thing" is always worth a few extra bucks to me.
I've been to every place in town, this is the best....2nd best is scuttlebutts.

I will begin by saying, during Season and weekends year round at EGG HARBOR there is typically a LONG Line of anxious customers waiting their turn for a table (from the time they open, until they close early to mid afternoon). Based on ALL of the positive reviews this may have just been an isolated experience (?) but it was an overall unacceptable mid-week breakfast visit (including ridiculously EXPENSIVE for what was delivered:( There are NO PLANS TO RETURN!!

The egg dishes that were ordered were served COLD including the toast! The service was noted to be aggressive (?) by others in the party. Receiving the check and dinner (?) mints (while still trying to pick through the COLD main course), including receiving very specific instructions by tbe hurried Server about being sure to ask for "additional coffee to go"(?)... is positively totally obnoxious
a/k/a UNACCEPTABLE!

I could go on and be very specific regarding ALL the nasty DETAILS but not worth the time...personally want to FORGET..INDIGESTION immediately comes to mind, re-visiting the recent visit.
(wondering if anyone else has had similar experience/opinion/thought(s).

What I observed, but do not consider an excuse:(below is stretching it regarding Management responsibility)
Because, during Season/& every Weekend year roundround this Restaurant is Non-Stop Crazy busy...possibly, training is lacking regarding not knowing how to pace/balance seating, kitchen and
LEISURELY (?) table service.
Is there constant pressure for Servers to turn their table(s) over...?

This place was so good, we ate breakfast there every day were were there!

I highly recommend the banana bread french toast! This was so good, it doesn't need syrup!

Wow we had breakfast there Saturday morning. The place is so bright and cheerful + our waitress was so warm wonderful and friendly. The portions are huge with a very nice side of homemade strawberry jam for your english muffin. Coffee pots on the table make sure your cup is never empty. I had the Farmer's Benedict my Hubby had the Italian fritata on special both 5 star.
