Although you can get your usual eggs, bacon and potatoes, there are also a number of other unique dishes. There are about 4 or 5 different types of Benedicts. There are also a variety of skillets and scrambles. The restaurant was quite crowded when we arrived on a Saturday morning. The service was prompt and friendly despite how busy they... More

Nothing special here. I had an omelette with cheese and was disappointed to find a small amount of cheese melted on top of the omelette. I'm used to a much larger portion and melted inside the omelette. I also wasn't impressed with the potatoes after reading so many great reviews. If they allowed half stars I'd give it a 2... More

This place started out as a 5 Star in my book but recently I have changed my opinion. Before Geneva Egg Harbor opened we would drive to Wheaton Towne Square to EH and then Naperville occasionally after they opened. Since Geneva Egg Harbor opened my husband and I meet friends here every Saturday for breakfast. Our Favorite Place! About a... More

Hands down the BEST breakfast & lunch place on the PLANET! We have been coming here for years. The menu choices range from healthy to hearty. You just KNOW you are tasting homemade food that is freshly prepared, not just some slop thrown together!. Excellent service with a smile greets you when you walk in. We had the smoked salmon...

Cannot pass up the Barrington benedict. They make the best hollandaise sauce plus the breakfast potatoes.

We really like this restaurant. Service is always great. Wait times for tables are reasonable. They keep people moving. The food is good. Menu has some unique items. I recommend the "Smart Start" breakfast! It is healthy and delicious. I recommend trying this restaurant.

The food was very good and the portions are large enough to share. The service is fast and efficient, only complaint is the very small waiting area with the long lines. I guess that goes with good food and good service!

Gary is the restaurant's manager and is always welcoming. The food is great. We have recently discovered the Georgia Grits. Excellent. You cannot go wrong here. The combo plate with Cinnamon pancakes is excellent. If you like Eggs Benadict, try the Eggs Michael. Again, excellent. And then afterwards go across the street to the Little Traveler store. You will get... More
