It is a good idea to get to Eggspectation early, particularly on weekends, if you prefer to avoid a significant wait. The restaurant filled quickly on the Saturday morning my wife and i stopped in for breakfast. Lots of good options. Definitely recommended.

Went there for breakfast and I was very happy with my meal. Service was good although the waitress seemed a bit snippy. The menu offers a nice variety of options. Will return the next time I'm in town.

Scrambled at best. Service was fine but the food was average at best. Very egg-pensive and definitely not egg-trodinary!! Anybody from the east coast would find this place inegg-cusable.

It may sound a little picky but when I noticed the pill lodged in the bench seating it made me look closer. The food was tasty service was good a little slower than usualMore

I love the Chesapeake Benedict here. All the breakfasts come with fried potatoes and fruit. I have never done lunch or dinner items, but this place is always packed-very popular! Make sure to have extra time if you come-sometimes there is a wait. Two things...More

Great Happy hour through the week. Great food at good price. Drinks during happy hour is also well priced. Good atmosphere to get together with friends/coworkers after a hard days work.

Our party ate here for breakfast and the choices ranged from really healthy smoothies with no sugar (kale, spinach, blueberries) to frittatas with all the extras and even libations. All were good and there was a really wide range of prices and options. The décor...More
