The worst part of this place is the limited hours. The best is the cinnamon apple pancake. Bring friends because you are going to have a lot of leftovers if you don't. It is HUGE. Granted it does take longer than ham and eggs, but it is worth the wait. You can sip orange juice or tea while you are... More

We visited Gail's Carriage House Inn for breakfast this morning. We have been there about 25 times in the past 6 years. It is a smallish restaurant and is very dated. Gail waits on tables and manages the kitchen during breakfast. That is good and bad, as she is super nice but can get distracted and unable to get back... More

Over the last 10 years, our family has eaten here (and in the original Mount Prospect location) intermittently - sometimes good, sometimes so-so. I ate a late breakfast here the other day and my food was tasty and not that expensive - $7.55 for the stuffed French toast special, with 2 eggs, 2 bacon, and 2 sausage. While the waitress... More

A co-worker and I stopped at Gail's while in town. Great value, great food. I had the stuffed French toast breakfast special, with eggs, bacon, and sausage. Everything was excellent. I will certainly be back!

Wide variety of choices for breakfast or lunch. Not overpriced, decent serving sizes, and friendly staff. Nice neighborhood place.

Found this place last year on our girls weekend out and went again this year. Still as great. The staff is the best. large portions served hot and pretty quick. Both times (Sunday morning) they were very busy, but never rushed you to clear the table. Will be back next year. Keep up the good work.

We had breakfast here after staying at a nearby hotel. Excellent food, good prices, fast service. We'll eat here again if in the area.

Tried Gail's today for the first time. I tried the original spud omelet which was very good and chose cinnamon toast instead of pancakes. The cinnamon toast was to die for. Waitress told us it was made by a local bakery. My dad had the ham and cheese omelet, which he said was excellent. He also gave high praise to... More
