Good Morning Gators!
This is not my first go around with Egg Harbor. My sharp eyed readers may remember my review of the Egg Harbor Geneva Illinois location several months ago. You can find it HERE
They share the same fowl theme and menu but the feel of the locations is very different. I think that Geneva location is a little warmer. The Schaumburg spot seems a tad industrial to me in spite of the carpet 2 (I’ll spare you the carpet rant) and in spite of Basia playing in the background 8 mixed with some kind of weird Caribbean music 4
OK off we go
I arrived a few minutes before opening and already people were arriving (as you can see in the picture). We waited a couple of minutes for the first responders to enter then went inside.
You can tell that this place was designed from the ground up to be a restaurant. It has a large corral to hold the waiting crowd.
Just inside the door from the holding area is the hostess stand / cashwrap.
Window seat at a 4 top. Intelligentsia Coffee. A weak 7 As I’ve mentioned before Having a quality product doesn’t always promise great results. They did have Splenda though.
Menu fully paroozed closed and ready to order.
Lobster meat, cream cheese and chives, topped with savory hollandaise sauce. Served with Harbor potatoes
The Hollandaise made the dish. The Lobster was imitation but passable. 6 The scrambled eggs were cooked soft (my preference) 7 The Potatoes could have been a bit crispier. It would have added some needed texture to the dish. The English Muffin was well toasted and buttered 8 Overall it was a pretty tasty dish. 7
The Eggs were cooked like I like Em 9 Chopped Bacon and cheese. How can you miss?
Potato Medallions. Oniony Greasy but OK 6
One of my pet peeves. Un Toasted Toast 4 It would have been a ghostly 2 but it was well buttered.
This was an OK dish. It was Pretty but a bit boring 6/7
Banana Bread French Toast
I swore that I would never order this anywhere ever again and yet I DID so in fairness to Egg Harbor I’m not going to Rant about it. My regular readers know how I feel about most places French Toast especially BBFT
A short and sweet one for EH Schaumburg. It’s a good addition to the Schaumburg restaurant scene and Wildberry needs a little competition.
