Fantastic except for ordinary hash browns

The portions were huge, and you can get pancakes instead of toast with any breakfast combo. Very popular. The hash browns were just ordinary diner quality, so I would steer clear of them. The rest of the food was excellent. Very good value. Friendly servers and quick kitchen.

To put it simply my wife's favorite meal is breakfast and she loves coming here so enough said :). When she comes she always gets an omelette and always tries it with different items and to date has not been displeased. I've had the corned beef hash, which I do enjoy. Bear in mind this is served with the hash... More

Due to lack of alternatives, Annies is always busy. Food is packaged and mediocre. A very unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth after eating sausage, hamburger, or any meat entrée. Salads are fair. Pancakes are heavy and unappetizing. Coffee tasted strong and bitter. Go somewhere else unless you have no other option.

This was our first time at this wonderful restaurant, but it won't be our last. From the moment we entered, the hostess was wonderful and so friendly. The food is the best breakfast we have ever had and we go out for breakfast often. The waitress was right on and every employee stopped by to fill our coffee cups. A... More

Having grown up in Skokie, I love Annie's Pancake House. And even today, when my friends and I are back in the Chicagoland area for the holidays, etc., there's always one breakfast meet up that is at Annie's. The food is great - generous portions, reasonably priced, steady service... it's a bit crowded and it doesn't really matter when you... More

I have to say that Annie's pancake house didn't disappoint. Solid breakfast and specialty options including the bacon waffle were fantastic! Service was great! Definitely a local favorite and a place we would return to its ever back in the Skokie area. The place was packed and people were waiting at the door even late morning.

Great breakfast place in downtown Skokie! Great food and wonderful service. My family has been going there for the last 12 years and it's still great.

The breakfast is very good and reasonably priced! Every time we go there, it's always crowded so something good must be happening. You may have to wait a little bit for a seat, sometimes outside, but the wait is worth it!

Years ago, this was the best kept secret in the near north suburbs. Just great food and terrific service. Service is both warm and welcoming plus really helpful. This is a restaurant where I've never seen them say no to a special request or substitutions. The omelets and pancakes are wonderful, as I'm sure the rest of the menu is,... More
