If from out of town you must get breakfast here. You will be coming back for more. Everything is outstanding but if your looking for something different go with the Apple pancake baked to perfection and obviously a different pancake from anybody else

My grandson picked Walker Brothers for breakfast. The food was very good and the service was excellent. A container was given o me to take some leftover sauce home.

Have been to a number of Walker Brothers locations around the North Shore, and this one is busy (and loud) as most of them are. Sometimes will have a line out the door, but on this occasion my friend arrived first and got a table for us so I could just walk on in. Many options on the menu, from... More

The vents in the ceilings are filthy with a longtime accumulation of dirt & dust. The booth seats are so old & worn out that there is no support for anyone who has the misfortune of having to sit in one of them. We advised the manager on duty that one of the cooks was seen by us wiping the... More

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!
