Excellent Apple Pancakes, Fresh Orange Juice, Omelets, Coffee

Richard Walker is from the same family that founded Walker Brothers Pancake house in Wilmette Glenview, and Chicago. As a result, the menus are very similar, and equally excellent. These are the quintessential pancake houses. The Apple Pancakes are unlike anything else: Huge, delicious( more... read more

They serve up huge servings here so be aware! Their waffles are amazing and someone in our party had the apple pancake (WOW-its huge) but tasted it, and is fab! This place will definitely surprise you with their terrific service and outstanding food! Give it a whirl!

Love this place. My family goes here every week end for breakfast. Love their coffee. I always order crepes with corn beef hash on the side. Their bacon I think is a little on the salty side.

If you want traditional breakfasts, they are on the menu. But, if you're looking for more innovative breakfast options, they are on the menu, too. I especially... More

Living around this area, I have been to Richard Walker's numerous times. I would say the food overall is okay. Food (Most times I've gone here I have had the pancakes): -Chocolate Chip Pancakes: Few in the batter, some on top. For the pancake dishes they give you six medium pancakes on the thicker side. -Banana/Pecan Pancakes: Bananas baked inside,... More

Try their apple filled pancake - it's huge and full of apples! We loved it! Their Dutch Baby (german pancake) was something new we tried - and it was especially good with the fresh lemon juice on top. Their omelets were "different" but delicious as well.

I find deny's food much more worth the money I was happy with the quality or choices , I love omelets however when I saw how brown these were on the outside it turned me off, I don't care for crusty eggs, I don't feel the quality matches the cost too pricey for what you get
