This restaurant is an institution in Rockford. They have the best Swedish pancakes I've ever had. Get them with lingonberries or fresh blueberries.

Their Swedish pancakes are the best in town. Also, try the corn beef hash. While the service could be slow during breakfast time, the food is well worth the wait.

Today, 1/5/15 around 2:30 p.m. I took two of my children to eat here. I have eaten here off and on for 30+ years. After some partnership change some years ago, things changed a little. The Swedish pancakes used to be terrific. Other, none pancake items never really were worth coming here to eat. Slowly, the food has become less... More

Met family here for a weekend breakfast. The service was delightful; all staff were friendly and capable. The portion sizes were very big! (That isn't a complaint.) My coffee cup stayed full, and my tummy got that way soon. I will definitely go back there next time I am in Rockford. Thanks for the yummy meal, y'all!

Reasonable prices, friendly service, and ample portions explain why there was a good sized crowd on a Monday night (especially popular with senior crowd...). Our family left full and had a good variety for everyone.

This is an annual event as we are home for Christmas only. We have been going here traditionally over 40 years. The only thing missing is salt pork which they dropped several years ago. We were there Saturday and it was still far superior to any other breakfasts we have eating out. Larry Gardner

If you cannot find something great for breakfast here, you should just roll over and go back to sleep! Fresh squeezed OJ, too!

My wife and I had a wonderful breakfast at this Rockford landmark. Excellent service with a very good breakfast buffet where you can sample some of their specialties.

I've been eating at the Stockholm Inn for the past 40+ years. Always good food and friendly people, and especially great for breakfast. Very good Swedish pancakes of course. The place is huge, and can accommodate banquets and meetings as well.

I do not visit Rockford without going to the Stockholm Inn for Swedish pancakes. That means every year around Thanksgiving my family makes the trek (sometimes multiple treks!) to enjoy these amazing pancakes. They are delicious, and in my opinion it's best to order them with extra lingonberries. Of course, they have lots of other things on the menu... but... More
