This place continues to pack them in and I just don't get the attraction. The service is indifferent, the food is mediocre, the prices are high. I've been there often enough over the years--always dragged there by others--to note that you never see the same host/hostess twice. And servers turn over almost as fast. I think there is a message... More

We went here with another couple after church on Sunday. A long line with an approximately 25 min. wait. No advance reservations are taken. Just try to enjoy the wait in line. The place is decorated nicely. It is quite crowded and noisy. People been coming here for years because of the food. A large menu consisting mostly of breakfast... More

Always a good meal whether breakfast items/lunch or dinner. I usually treat myself to a German pancake with the fruit and am never disappointed. Hard to find fault with Walker Brothers no matter what you order.

Walker Brothers is a very popular place for breakfast in Glenview. They make very good food and have very good service, but their prices are a bit high for what you get.

I have been to over 10 different original pancake houses around the country always ordering the one and the only "Apple Pancake!" This is how I rate this restaurant. Here in Glenview I have determined that it is second to only the original original pancake house in Portland OR. It was huge and delicious with lots of apples and cinnamon... More

Even though this is one of a small chain it is a notch above all other pancake house. They have way more then just pancakes. Try the German Apple Pancake or the Swedish Lemon Pancake, they are to die for.

Manager was terrible. Rude and unwelcoming. Love the apple pancakes but not enough to be treated in such a rude fashion. I hope that this issue is addressed. We had a party of 9 and walked away. I expect to be treated with respect and common curtesy. Please walker bros. address this issue

Walker Bros. has a very good and interesting menu, and great service. The senior special is a great value. Nice variety of pancakes and eggs. Good for any meal including breakfast, lunch or dinner, and great coffee!

The ambience isn't anything special -- it's a pancake house with booths and tables in a low-frills setting. But the staff is friendly and there's a yummy gluten-free menu that offers delicious gluten-free pancakes and waffles. (Cue the chorus of angels singing.) The price is right, the service is good and the coffee is hot. Not a healthy meal but,... More
