The concept is great, the menu is interesting and the restaurant has some very cute eclectic touches. The food and service do not quite meet expectations. My breakfast burrito was more like a potato with tasteless sausage and dry scrambled eggs in a dry tortilla. Our daughter had her eggs order cooked incorrectly and my sister received turkey bacon instead... More

I've been to Eggspectations a couple of times. The food is fresh and well prepared. It's like a diner, but a little bit fancier. That being said, it's suitable for families and accommodates small children regarding food and high chairs. Great wait staff and large menu. My only complaint is that there is often a long wait. If you come... More

Great barista and happy hour but this place markets itself as "the brunch" spot in Howard County...no...save yourself the money and go to Double T on 40. Don't judge it before you go

Food here is good,fresh, Atmosphere is a little loud as it's a open room and a lot of brick and concrete floor, prices are a little high but the foods worth the price, our server Blair was very nice and the service was quick.

I have never been to this restaurant before, but the person I was meeting with recommended it. What a great recommendation! The food selection is unbelievable--it seemed like pages and pages of menu, and something for everyone. Yes, much of the menu is egg based; however, there's a lot of options without eggs, i.e., hamburgers, salads, crab cakes, etc. I... More

Best happy hour around, and good food, nice noise level, and just a good franchise to enjoy a drink and/or meal.

Party of 12, various ages ( 8-68 ), yet still pretty good. The breakfasts were all good with great portions. Mixed reviews on dinners. My Rockfish was plenty but lacked seasoning leaving it somewhat bland. The smoothies are good and the dessert was really good. Service consedering the group size was good. Only one blip on the multiple checks. Not... More

My wife and I arrived here at 8am this Friday morning when the restaurant had not become packed as it usually does. We were seated at a booth opposite the bar area which we like as it's not usually as loud there. We ordered a couple coffees, I got the Classic, and the wife ordered two eggs and the Fried... More

We go here sometimes for Sunday breakfast. Food is always good. Their menu is extensive. Recommend going early, because it gets really crowded later in the morning.

This restaurant did not exceed my expectations, but left me wondering how many other customers are being ripped off by this place. During my first visit and most likely last visit to this restaurant I trusted the waitress advise on what to order, which was a big mistake. She lead me to believe that if I ordered the fresh start... More
