We are a family of big breakfast lovers. We had no idea what we were in for when we entered this fine establishment. The portions are enormous. When the server brought the first entree out I thought they were serving us family style but it turned out to be one persons breakfast!!! Fast seating on a Sunday. Hot and delicious food and great pricing. A must go to restaurant in very nice area.

Very popular place in town. You have to wait in line for a table. Old school feel to the place and they have clearly built up a reputation in town. Service was attentive but it is clear they like to turn the tables over quickly. Felt a bit rushed. Food was very good but I was surprised by the small portions. I ordered 2 eggs, 4 bacon strips and 3 pancakes. Pancakes only 5 inch in diameter. It's not often I leave a restaurant still hungry. Left feeling that the popularity of the place is based on it's reputation rather than what is currently being delivered.

We've been to several Walker Brothers locations and they all offer exceptional decor. The deep, rich, dark stained oak and the abundance of stained glass give one the feeling of being in an old, comfortable English manor.

I've tried several different items from the menu but I always go back to the apple pancake; a plate sized other-worldly combination of pancake, apples & cinnamon. It's so big you won't be able to finish it (unless everyone else at your table helps which often happens!)

There is usually a line in the mornings but it moves quickly. We often go later in the day. Who says breakfast needs to be eaten in the morning?

Always a great meal. I really like their German Pancakes loaded with fresh lemon and powdered sugar.

This location is one of several operated by Walker Bros. They are rightfully famous for their apple pancake served in a large iron skillet and bubbling with brown sugar and other ingredients. The restaurant offers a full range of breakfast items all day, as well as salads and sandwiches. Wonderful family restaurant.
