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

To say the food here is fantastic is truly an understatement; it is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMINAL!! The staff here is top notch, the food is brought to your table piping hot, and will be enough, most of the time at least, to fill you for a good period of time. Word of caution: Sunday mornings if you don't get there early,... More

We ate breakfast at Annie's Pancake House in Mid June during a 2 week stay in Skokie/Chicago as part of an Idf disabled veterans delegation. We were a party of about 20 people. Breakfast was great. Service and atmosphere were good too. I had my "usual" restaurant breakfast - 3 'sunny side up' eggs, double portion bacon and white toast,... More

Had a wonderful inpromptu breakfast with my mom this morning. We were close to Annie's so we decided to give it a try after reading reviews. I had the Denver omelette with bacon instead of ham. It was perfect...I'm not kidding. Perfect ratio, fresh ingredients and not stingy on the bacon. Hash browns ordered and delivered crispy. Opted for pancakes... More
