I felt as though it was about time that I reviewed this popular chain. A lot of people asked me about it and it’s a regular spot of my buddy Dan

Egg Harbor is located in the southeast corner of a cul de sac. It’s kind of hard to describe but it will make sense when you find the place.

They have a lot of waiting area. I’m sure that they need it on the weekend.

I went inside to an abandoned Hostess stand.

I went into the actual restaurant and found my server. I chose a table near a window of course. Ordered Coffee. Water is already on the table in a pitcher and there is Colored Pencils for the Kiddies or the child within.

Food Time!

Fried Green Tomato Benedict

A southern fav! Sauteed bacon, roasted red peppers, fried green tomatoes and poached eggs atop an English muffin with creamy hollandaise sauce. Served with cheese grits.

Hollandaise. Eggy Lemony  7.  The Eggs could have used another 30 seconds  7.  Bits of Bacon and Red Bell Peppers  8.  English Muffin was actually Toasted  8.  The Fried Green Tomato was soggy from the Egg and the sauce  4.  but the Tomato supplied a little fresh acid  pop to the dish.  8.   The Cheesy Grits had a bit of raw crunch and could have used a touch of salt.  7.

Overall this was a good dish. A definite reorder item for me. a High 7 Low 8. Order this.

The Manager was happy in his work. he was cleaning and whistling Badly while he was doing it.  My sweet entree arrived.

Summer in Italy French Toast

Rich and creamy strawberry flavored Italian cheese layered between three slices of extra thick French toast garnished with fresh berries, crunchy granola, powdered sugar and a drizzle of raspberry sauce.

I might as well start off with “THE LINK” and get it out of the way. For newbies to my blog I feel like it’s a really rare restaurant that makes french toast properly. “THE Alton Brown Makes French Toast LINK”

This Dish was beautiful but disappointing. It was a few slices of commercial brioche bread   6.  some fresh fruit  8.  and some Mascarpone  7. Overall for me a sad 6 because it lacked actually being Buttery Eggy Delicious French Toast.

That’s a wrap for Egg Harbor. A solid reliable chain choice.

 

OK Kids That’s it for me. I’m off to my next Adventure!BreakfastGator_Color_Logo_1R
