Went with fiance' for breakfast because I had a Groupon. Walked in and was immediately seated and my server was pregnant which I give her props for, but on Groupon they say they're gonna automatically add 18% to bill well guess wat we have her 40% so who ends up losing? Plus having to make reservations for a breakfast place,... More

Ordered the spuds signature dish What A Ham for $8.59. This is hashbrowns encased with diced ham, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and American Cheese with scrambled eggs. A dish to die for. Service was good and they had ample parking. Noticed many customers were regulars who were called by name. A very friendly place. Son ordered the apple pancake ($12.99).... More

Gail's used to be located in Mount Prospect, but according to their website, they are now located in Des Plaines in an entirely different building. The restaurant is actually located in Des Plaines on Elmurst Rd. (Rt. 83) and is just north of Algonquin Rd. The food is good, the portions are great, the staff is friendly. You wouldn't want...

We went after an early school presentation for a late breakfast and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was tasty and the portions were substantial. You might consider looking at some of the specials as they do have some interesting ones and they do seem to change. There were five of us, along with two... More

The worst part of this place is the limited hours. The best is the cinnamon apple pancake. Bring friends because you are going to have a lot of leftovers if you don't. It is HUGE. Granted it does take longer than ham and eggs, but it is worth the wait. You can sip orange juice or tea while you are... More

We visited Gail's Carriage House Inn for breakfast this morning. We have been there about 25 times in the past 6 years. It is a smallish restaurant and is very dated. Gail waits on tables and manages the kitchen during breakfast. That is good and bad, as she is super nice but can get distracted and unable to get back... More

Over the last 10 years, our family has eaten here (and in the original Mount Prospect location) intermittently - sometimes good, sometimes so-so. I ate a late breakfast here the other day and my food was tasty and not that expensive - $7.55 for the stuffed French toast special, with 2 eggs, 2 bacon, and 2 sausage. While the waitress... More

A co-worker and I stopped at Gail's while in town. Great value, great food. I had the stuffed French toast breakfast special, with eggs, bacon, and sausage. Everything was excellent. I will certainly be back!

Wide variety of choices for breakfast or lunch. Not overpriced, decent serving sizes, and friendly staff. Nice neighborhood place.
