Be warned, these are the thick American style pancakes, not what we have in the UK and Europe which is more of a crepe. My husband and I thought we would give it a go since we received a gift card and thought well maybe since this place is so beloved we might like it, well no such luck. The... More

I would highly recommend this place for breakfast - although they serve lunch and dinner too. There is usually a line at the weekends but it moves fairly fast and is definitely worth the wait. Good food, good service, very clean friendly restaurant - good ambience.

Hands down the best Apple Pancake you will find anywhere. Be patient, there is usually a pretty good wait, especially on weekends. Great breakfast, great coffee and I doubt that one person can eat the whole thing. Make it a point to stop there when you are in the area.

On every visit, my family makes a trip to Walker Bros. Usually breakfast, but also lunch and even dinner. Pancakes are superb. And the hash browns - try with cheese and onions. And that apple pancake - add the french ice cream!!!

Every meal I have had at Walker Bros. on Dundee has been very good. This is our first choice by far for breakfast.

Walker Brothers not only offers some of the best food in the Northwest Suburban area but it is also one of the most beautiful. The restaurant houses a priceless collection of original stained glass windows and chandeliers including a number from Tiffany and Company. The interior of the restaurant is golden oak from floor to ceiling. Making a choice from... More

Our annual family (of 16) visit to Walker Brothers, as always, was wonderful. The service is great, the food excellent and perfectly executed, and the atmosphere is warm and cozy. Our favorites are any of the Benedict choices, Apple Pancake, Dutch Baby, Danish Garden, Chocolate Crepes, Potato Pancakes and we always get pancakes on the side. Don't let a long... More

Very good, with one exception, they cannot accommodate large groups. Went here with 11 other people and needed to sit at two different tables. Server was excellent and provided outstanding service to us all. And the food was delicious!

By far the best pancakes in the country! I went to the first Walker Bros. years and years ago and have enjoyed their pancakes ever since. We lived in Arlington Heights and started going to this restaurant when it first opened. We retired and moved to Arizona but return to Illinois yearly and always come back for a breakfast at... More
