Food very average to poor. Tasteless oven baked breakfast potatoes with a few raw green onions cut up into them. Eggs over easy were well done. Had to stop at Starbucks afterwards for a decent cup of coffee. Expected better after reading other reviews. Service was excellent.

Hi, Mark,

I am so sorry that your experience with us was not up to our standards. I am so glad you took the time to write this review as we are always looking to improve.

When you stopped by a few weeks back, we had just started using our new, updated quality potatoes. I absolutely take responsibility in the fact that they were not up to our standards, as we have been playing with the cooking time and seasoning amounts or these new potatoes and have finally mastered it. As for our coffee, we just switched this past week to a wonderful Sunrise Roast that Egg Harbor paired with Intelligentsia Coffee to create this new blend, which is a brighter, less bitter flavor.

I am so glad you loved our service, and I really do hope you try us again based off of that so we can provide you an excellent overall experience.

Thanks again,

We moved away from the Hinsdale area in 2013. Visiting for the weekend and we were looking forward to the usual exceptional dinning experience at Egg Harbor Hinsdale. We left a little disappointed. I ordered the Door County Melt; looking forward to the wonderful combination of flavors. Gone were the potato pancakes. No apple sauce and sour cream to spread. Salad was served dry - no dressing. Even the multi-grain bread had changed. My wife shared that she was not "wow'd" by her breakfast either.

Egg Harbor is very consistent in its quality food. The protein wrap and meaty skillet were excellent. Biscuits are really tasty and the butter and homemade jelly is delicious.
