We were staying at a nearby hotel and needed a place for breakfast. Found this just by searching online. Read some reviews and decided to try it. The restaurant was clean and bright inside which started off nice. Our waiter named Pedro was very friendly. The coffee was very good as advertised. We decided to order and split two items... More

Ever since Richard sold the restaurant (oh, by the way Richard doesn't own the restaurant anymore - correct me if I'm wrong) the food quality is not the same. We have been patronizing Richard Walker's since Richard himself was walking around the restaurant serving food himself. We went there yesterday for breakfast on 4/8/17 and the service was not good...

My breakfast was very good, although very expensive (come on, almost $10 for Swedish Pancakes), but customer service was so poor that I will never return. I was a single woman eating alone, and was ignored by the woman refilling coffee cups. She filled the cups at the table behind me, walked past me, filled the cups at the table... More

I ordered an omelet for a dish on the menu that indicated eggs any style. The waitress was confused and a manager came to ask what I meant. I explained I wanted the eggs any style to be served as an omelet. He finally understood but said nobody has ever ordered the item I wanted to be served this way.... More

Weekday visit had no waiting time like weekends. Many breakfast choices. Food is very good as well as service. Meals are slightly higher than other breakfast places.

This is the place to be for breakfast! Coffee while you wait. Get there early as most of the time there is a significant wait. Even thought there's a wait, it well worth the food!

My wife and I are frequent breakfast people, we have tired many places all around town, and the #1 spot we always go back to is Richard Walkers. The food, excellent, the service, excellent, the staff is friendly, and most important, our coffee cup is always full !!

Richard Walker has never fed me a meal that wasn't delicious. The Apple, Dutch Baby and German Pancakes are awesome! Since they added the extended seating section the wait is not bad at all.

We visited the location years ago in San Diego and really enjoyed our meal. So when we came to Chicago we naturally had to try again. Great food, friendly staff. You must try the apple pancake..
