We usually stop by Eggspectation earlier in the day for breakfast. The omelets and eggs benedict are great, and we are never disappointed with the morning or brunch selections; however, we had dinner at the restaurant on Saturday night and were very pleased with the...More

I ordered the Avocado Grilled Chicken Salad (gluten-free) and enjoyed it very much. I requested the dressing on the side, which they accommodated. My mother ordered a Big Classic Burger with grilled onions, and she was happy. She could only eat half of it and...More

This restaurant offers a wide range of food items - enough to satisfy most pallets. I have always enjoyed the Sunday brunch here. A good meal, in a relaxed ambiance - an opportunity to share a good time with friends or that special someone.

Stopped before beginning a long road trip. Pretty big place, but pretty busy. Ordered two eggs with pancakes, bacon potatoes, potatoes, and tomatoes. It was cooked perfectly, tasted pretty good, and sated my appetite. Bit pricey, though.

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.

An all-day breakfast spot seems as if it would get an A in my book, but this place doesn't deserve that rating. I ordered the potato pancakes from the menu thinkng that they'd be similar to latkes. But no, these potato pancakes were made in...More

Egg speciation has an extensive breakfast menu built mostly around eggs, of course. The selections are creative. The restaurant is large and nicely decorated in a funky sort of way. This a family friendly place that was very busy on a Sunday morning. Despite the...More

This is really the best kept secret 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore. My favorite go-to spot for brunch or lunch any day of the week. Pictured below is a photo from my birthday breakfast with my Mom: lobster omelette and a surprise waffle from my...More
