For the past 25 years, we have frequented this restaurant for its ambiance and fresh-squeezed orange juice and tasty, varied breakfasts. Never a disappointment.

This place is filled to capacity, and there is a good reason, they are famous for their breakfast. The restaurant was recommended to us by the rental car employee. Their portions are huge, so if you have a good appetite, get ready for a very fulfilling breakfast. We were there twice during our vacation, and both times we had to... More

We've been going to this restaurant for more than 15 yrs now; it is still my favorite for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Better time to visit is on a weekday. Sunday's always has a waiting line. The Dutch baby pancake is & always has been my favorite.

Walker Brothers is one of our go-to breakfast spots, we have several in the area. I've been going here for about 20 years, the food continues to be very good but, the service is declining. On my recent trip on Monday, the restaurant was a bit packed for a weekday morning. The food was great but, the server seemed overwhelmed.... More

Nope don't go there if you're rushed. But if you have the time, take the time. No complaints at all. Excellent service, excellent food, enjoyable time. Love the decor. Lots and lots of traditional woodwork. I had the pumpkin French Toast, featured in November. What a treat! Pumpkin not overpowering at all. My husband had the Santa Fe omelette with... More

This restaurant is extremely popular for both breakfast and lunch and understandingly so. Their pancakes and hash browns are delicious and their bacon outstanding. Their omelettes are also exceptional and well worth the extra wait. The restaurant is very busy on both Saturdays and Sundays and therefore a long wait is usual unless you arrive before 8:45 A.M.

Two words - Apple Pancake. Three words - baked apple pancake. Enough said. Service is always good. Food is always excellent. Restaurants are always busy. That's all you need to know.
