Great little local place

The owners are the nicest people and have a great staff, friendly, attentive. Good food, nice size portions, & worth the money. Never had a bad meal there yet

Wonderful family place for breakfast. The fireplace had a fire, Christmas decorations all throughout the restaurant, and above all, the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We went there twice wile in Chicago, and are planning on visiting it again when we return to the city. This place made me feel at home. By the way, the second time we were... More

As a teacher I have to strictly adhere to my allotted lunch time so I'm back to work for my kiddos. I love that Rise N Dine allows me to call in my order so that once I'm in they immediately bring it out to me when I arrive. The food is delicious and the servings are plentiful. I am... More

I go here about twice a month. Good solid breakfast with all the usual choices. During busy times, parking can be a challenge.

If you want an all day big breakfast place with a multi page menu, huge portions, bottomless coffee and friendly service, this is the spot for you. If you are not a coffee drinker, but you want a warm drink, go to the back page and order the hot carrot, ginger, apple, lemon juice. It was lovely. I had an... More

Drove by Rise and Dine Pancake house on Milwaukee street and thought that this would be a good place for breakfast. Checked the reviews on Tripadvisor and hoped that we could have breakfast their before returning to St. Louis. Told the family about this place at the wedding we were attending for the weekend at the Hilton. On Sunday morning,... More

Stopped in because it looked crowded. I can see why. Friendly wait staff. Seems like family working together. Omlette was excellent. And pancakes were perfect.

The food very tasty and the cooks know how to scramble eggs, you dont get the rubbery or browned eggs. Service also very good here, the only problem is they are so popular you may need to wait 15 to 30 minutes for a table depending on the time you arrive.

We ordered breakfast and were pleased with the quick and friendly service. The portion sizes for the meals we ordered were more than we expected and the food was served hot. Omelets were fresh and pancakes were served with warm syrup. We could not eat it all, and gladly took the remaining morsels with us to enjoy latter! We needed... More

My server was just simply inspiring. He name was Athena and as a solo customer I had the ability to people watch. The restaurant was very crowded however she made each and every customer feel special. She really has a gift and this restaurant is lucky to have her. I saw her actually assist a handicapped man with his meal.... More
