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

The place was packed, We finally found a parking spot and went in. When we went in there were people standing in line and we stood in line for about 20... More

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.
