It was ones on Saturday morning,my friend that I haven't seen for few years was visiting from Philly. Walker Bros was the place we knew as a good breakfast place from the past. But this time was not only at least one hour wait to get seated plus horrible tasteless coffee but waiter walking with his thumb in my omelette.... More

A little bit crowded on weekend mornings. I like their spinach crepes. Service is exceptional. Kids friendly.

Food usually good, overpriced. Bacon is good, inconsistent in size of the pieces and it's expensive. The bus boys often are more helpful than the servers. Service is often slow.

Never disappointed when we go here. The food is served hot and fresh. The coffee is great with real cream. So many choices on the menu. If you have someone, in your party not in the mood for breakfast food they have other options as well. The staff is great and if there is a line it moves quickly. So... More

We were introduced to this place by our two daughters more than 15 years ago. Over the weekend we took our guests from Iowa to introduce this location for brunch. They loved the place and said every time they are in Chicago they will now look for this place for their breakfast or brunch needs. The place is very uniquely... More

Just had a great lunch! Good was delicious- especially the pancakes! They were light & fluffy! Service was outstanding and my coffee cup was always full. Food is consistent with their other restaurants- you can't go wrong! YUM!

Walker Brothers and Egg Harbor are two of the best places for delicious food in the NW suburbs. Their breakfasts are the best but they also have other delicious food.

Serves the typical breakfast fare. The only item that differentiates them from others is the German pancake.

Walker Bros. Original Pancake House is always good when we have visited. If going on a Sunday, of course expect to have to stand in a line for a while but it is worth the wait. Most times they have their famous Apple Pancake pre-made (it takes a good 35 minutes to bake). Coffee is good, the place is always... More

After going to Walker Brothers Lynn and I discussed if the food was that much better than IHOP... we are not sure it is. It is definitely much more expensive. Watch out for the Orange Juice at $4.25 a glass and it was warm to boot. Every couple of years we decide to go there again and each time we... More
