Unbelievable Breakfast Any Time of Day 5/27/2006

Walker Brothers has been around for generations, and with any luck, will continue on for many more. This fabulous breakfast spot is actually open for lunch and into the evenings. Their specialty is pancakes, and the restaurant is famous for its apple pancake, which is almost like a dessert (you can take them home frozen for later, too). This beautiful restaurant has many beautiful stained glass windows, beautiful wood paneling (when paneling was not a dirty word), and excellent wait staff who will remember you upon your return. And you will...once you've eaten here. more

Best Pancakes 5/25/2006

This place is quite a drive from where I live, but I am up for the drive any time if it means getting some food from this place. The pancakes here are too die for; they are fluffy and sweet and just soo good. My favorite item here is their strawberry crepe. It is perfect. Its topped and loaded with fresh strawberries and whipped creme. I don't think any other place around Chicago can make a crepe like this place can. If you haven't been here yet, you are seriously missing out!! more

always a nice experience 4/17/2006

We had Easter breakfast yeasterday at Walker Brothers with my son and his girlfriend, my wife and I. Between us, there were omelettes (veggie and santa fe), eggs, pancakes, hash brown and sausage, plus the great hawaiian kona coffee. The food and service was excellent. This restaurant has been a North Shore fixture for decades because they do breakfast well. It's a good place to go, although it can be crowded on the weekends. Also, the food seems better here than in their other locations (Glenview and Park Ridge). more

Good brunch place 10/7/2005

Walker Bros is certainly a good place to go for brunch - it's popular and their food never disappoints at any of their locations. However, their popularity will keep you in line for at least a half hour, if not more, most weekends, and sometimes service feels rushed. Their menu is original and you can't pass up a chance at their apple pancakes or their Dutch baby. Their omelets are also very well done. Basically, once you get seated, you can't miss! more

yummy breakfast 9/1/2005

Walker Bros. has all the staples of a breakfast/brunch: eggs (scrambles, omelets, etc), pancakes (several types), waffles, crepes and much more. I am not a big fan of pancakes but I love the apple pancake (it's HUGE!) and the potato ones are also great. Scrambles are always good. The service is friendly and efficient and the food comes out pretty quickly too. The longest wait is definitely in the line on the weekends. A lot of people come in large groups (family-friendly place) so the wait for two people isn't all that bad. If you like having breakfast for dinner though, this is the place. No wait too. more

GREAT 8/26/2005

Very good food! 3 egg omelets are HUGE since they are cooked in the oven. Lincolnshire location has a banquet room and an outdoor patio. Big selection of pancakes, waffles, eggs, meat, salads, and sandwiches. Definatly try their famous Apple Pancake, German Pancake, Dutch Baby, and German Pancake. The service is amazing! A bit pricey, but you are left feeling stuffed and going home with a doggy bag! more

AMAZIN! 8/26/2005

I've been working at Walker Bros for over 3 years now. The food is the best around. A bit pricey, long lines, but well worth it all! more

Great breakfast place 8/5/2005

This is the best breakfast place around Evanston area. This place is in Wilmette. You have to expect to wait in line around 15-30 min. especially in the weekends. Their food and service are very good. I love their omelets best, but my wife loves their pancakes. Try to get there early since there is huge line in the weekends but It is definitely worth to wait in the line for the delicious breakfast. more
