I drove a little over an hour to visit Eggspectation, but would not make the drive again for this particular restaurant. I order the Chesapeake Benedict -- it was good, but there was very little crab meat and the dish was barely warm when I...More

We have been in Eggspectation many times for lunch, the omelette and toasts always provide a satisfying meal. Not until we have dinner there one evening do we find out how great their dinner is! Not a big dinner menu but they do serve a...More

Had some kind of pastrami/swiss/cole slaw/french fry sammich that was really good. Kinda pricey for a sammich, but a BOGO coupon made the meal reasonable for two.

Food was good but portions are small. The best thing about this place in the creative menu of dishes you've never heard of and won't find anywhere else. But, overall, just not worth the money for what you get.

This was my second shot at dining at this location. The food was generously portioned, and not bad, but not great enough to surpass the horrid service. I truly hate when the waitstaff spends more time gossiping than checking on items in the kitchen, serving...More

The decor is nice. Not bad for a restaurant in the corner of a shopping center. Food wasn't bad; above average. A bit too much seasoning on my turkey burger. But tasty and cooked properly. Waiter was friendly and accommodating. Problem is service. Kitchen was...More
