It seems to me that I had been to an Elly's Pancake house years ago. Its lack of proximity to where I live is the main reason I had not been back. The other day, however, I decided to head to the Glenview site when I was in the area. My wife and I were not disappointed. We had a... More

Nice place for breakfast, although they have lunch foods, I like their crepes so much I have never eaten lunch.

Our group of 24 showed up for breakfast without a reservation, and were seated immediately. This restaurant has a large menu with all the breakfast classics. Our orders were quickly taken. Our server was accommodating as a few people had special request such as swapping waffles for pancakes, and ordering lunch items for breakfast. I ordered the Frittata skillet with... More

The biscuits and gravy was okay but the oj and coffee was great. I would definitely come back if I am in the area.

We didn't like the pancakes - they tasted more like cake to us - but wow! the corned beef hash was scrumptious, the real thing, full of flavor. Our toast and eggs and bacon and potatoes were good in the many combinations and styles (poached, over easy, scrambled, whole wheat, rye, whole grain, hashbrowns, home fries....) our table of six...

Before 9 on Saturday morning I was seated promptly and had attentive service; appreciated when dining as one person. Elly's a great alternative to increasingly mediocre breakfasts included with Glenview area hotel nights. My plain crepes were light and almost nutty. Different from pale eggy version at Original Pancake Houses but still sweetly satisfying (just expect batter recipe is not... More

Elly's puts out a fantastic breakfast. Waitress was great and very helpful. Restaurant was very clean. Service was fast. I Had their Club Breakfast and it was great. Eggs were just as I like them, and more than I could eat. My husband had a meat lovers skillet only did not want the eggs on top of the hash browns... More

Love the updated interior of Elly's - fresh and modern! The food here is always amazing..Still miss the ribeye steak and eggs they used to carry. The flank steak was great, though. Overall, Elly's food does not fail. Service could be a bit better. It just took too long before anyone checked up on us.

Thank annettedi
