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

Came here with my husband and infant. They originally wanted to seat us in a small booth, but them realized we had a baby and caraway, gave us a corner booth and sling. The waitress was sweet. Food was so good, thick bacon!!!

The Apple pancake is so good.....they have started the batch of them before you arrive. If you have 20 minutes to spare, ask them to make one with less sugar and they'll make yours from scratch. It's still perhaps the best apple pancake ever made!

We moved from the Chicago area to Texas about 17 years ago, and although there are Original Pancake Houses, none compare to Walker Brothers. I always get the vegetarian omelet, which is so fluffy and light, but almost impossible to finish in one sitting. My daughter always orders the strawberry waffle with whipped cream...comes loaded with strawberries. The coffee is... More
