Lunch special was delicious barbecue. Service was prompt and courteous. Food was served quickly too, so lunchtime was not over extended.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 March 2017 via mobile

The Egg Bistro is more than a breakfast place, in fact what excellent food they provide for breakfast is matched with excellent food for dinner as well. The service is always excellent. The place is always bustling with customers but the turn around is very good. Kudos to the staff. Worth visiting over and over again. More

The Egg Bistro is a pretty typical breakfast/brunch/lunch spot, with an upgraded atmosphere and a full bar. I love the grits they served as a side, much courser grind than typical, and the portions are huge. I was excited that chipped beef was on the menu, but the cream gravy was so salty, it was almost inedible. The rest of... More

The Egg Bistro has build your own breakfasts. 2 or 3 or more items. Choose from a list. Perfect for us picky eaters. The line or wait on Sunday takes 10-15 minutes. Have a mimosa while you wait from the bar. The Hamburgers are great & they have a special night for that. I love their Chicken Salad Sandwiches. More... More

We went to this restaurant expecting something spectacular based on the line that was outside the restaurant. They serve breakfast, what can go wrong with breakfast, how can you screw up an egg, I probably, won't go back, knowing that I can get an equally good breakfast at so many other locations, for much less money.

Oh man you can taste eggs in the fluffiest omelette I have ever had. So large I could not eat it all for breakfast. I would go back and I want to go back. It was delicious. They have many selections plus they have make your own omelette.

This restaurant ALWAYS has lots of people standing outside waiting for a table like this is the hottest spot in all of Chesapeake. I’ve been to this restaurant twice and I honestly don’t see the big deal. The food is pretty average and the prices are reasonable. Nothing worth waiting in line for but that’s just my opinion. I have... More
