The breakfasts are great. A wide variety of speciality including the Dutch, potato and ligonberry. Tremendous thick bacon. All worth the wait. A real treat.

You better be hungry when you go to Walker Brothers. You might have to wait in line a few minutes, but the food is really worth the short time in the waiting area. The crispy crunchy french toast is simply out of this world. Eggs Benedict choices are superb, and the potato pancakes are great. Even the oatmeal was mmm... More

They have the best pancakes and eggs. Their omelettes and hash browns are good also. We have been eating here for a long time and they are very consistent with their food and service.

Been coming to this location as well as the other 3 on the north side for many years. Don't recall every having anything other than an excellent breakfast/lunch. Fresh orange juice is consistently excellent. Very long wait on weekend. Even during the week, can be a line and limited parking in the smallish lot.

This was the 3rd or 4th visit here. I come back once a year, due to this being a favorite of my cousin's. Every month or two, a few of my relative's get together for breakfast, to chat on family updates, and to see what everyone, plus the kids & grand kids are up to. I remember my dislikes from... More

Walker Brothers is one of our favorite places for breakfast as it offers the famous apple pancake which is so mouthwateringly delicious it almost defies description. It takes almost 1/2 hour for them to craft, so sit back and enjoy some of their tasty coffee and nibble on their thick sizzling bacon or sip fresh orange juice while you wait.... More

Walker Brothers is loud and crowded, mostly because happy customers are chatting. The wait is well worth it. Potato pancakes and the corned beef hash are outstanding. Great atmosphere for a good breakfast at any time of day.

This local landmark is worth the wait. When we arrived the place was packed, but the staff has it it under control. We were seated in no time. The restaurant is loud and because of the crowd it always seems busy. The staff was very friendly and the service was quick. The menu is majority breakfast items, prices seem a... More

One of the best brunch places I have been to, and I am from the South, where we love our brunch! It's not fancy, it's not eclectic or "cool", but the food is really good. The portions are huge. Every omelette comes with a side of pancakes. Its big enough to share between two hungry people. Their banana pancakes were... More

If you are willing to spend good amount of time on Sunday waiting, have trouble parking, wait in crowed entry …then go to Walker Bros. The food is solid, mostly breakfast items and decent size portions. Coffee, for breakfast place, should be much better. The prices are higher than many other local places, but not totally out of line. The... More
