My teenage son and I went here for breakfast. Service was quick and delicious… Highly recommend!
my son had the waffles with eggs and bacon and cleaned his plate without leaving a taste for me. I had the farmers Benedict which was outstanding.

Came here on a Sunday morning and the wait was surprisingly short, less than 20 minutes. Pretty crowded breakfast place. Was there with three other people. I had the pancakes, which have some wheat flour in them giving them a whole grain kind of taste. The skillets looked good, and the people I was eating with liked the Benedict eggs. Some southern items on the menu like grits, look good. Good coffee, they give you a pot so you don't have to worry about refills. They also make coffee drinks. The pancakes were not a great choice for me, but otherwise a nice breakfast.

I've been dining at Egg Harbor in LF for 26 years and the food and service is consistently excellent! The menu offers a wide selection of both breakfast & lunch items including some very healthy choices. Great homey atmosphere to gather with family and friends...but get there early on Sunday if you don't want to wait.

Yes, they are often very busy and sometimes you have to wait for a table, but it is must go-to place whenever my adult kids are in town. We almost always order one of the skillets though we can never seem to eat it all. Makes for a yummy breakfast the next morning!
