A group of old co-workers got together for breakfast (brunch) at Elly's Pancake House. We were seated as soon as they got a few tables together, as there were about 15 of us. I ordered the potato benedict which was two poached eggs on top of potato pancakes & bacon and covered with hollandaise sauce. No one had any complaints... More

My wife and I had omelets for breakfast. The omelets were huge! Neither one of us were able to finish. If you're hungry, pay them a visit.

Place messed up my order which was ok, I didn't complain and didn't even mention it. It was still alright. My issue came when the hostess gave us the our check (since waitress was busy). We waited 15 min the waitress hasn't come back to pick it up yet. So we went to the front cashier to pay and the... More

Such a cute place. It is also very clean and inviting. Plates on the wall are beautiful. Pancakes are delish. Daughter had a skillet and it was enough for two grown adults.

Breakfast all day long or lunch or dinner ant time. The food is very good and you get plenty. The wait staff is average.

Took my first trip to the USA with a group of friends who had been to Chicago previously and they took me to Elly's on the first morning and the food and service was fantastic. We ended up returning most mornings of our trip trying out different items off the breakfast menu but always including the amazing pancake stacks. Definitely... More

We've been here 15-20 times since they first opened. The food is not terrible but certainly not great in my opinion. My issue is that the breakfast is somewhat pricey and the portions have shrunk...... So I'm going to numerous other places in the vicinity for far better omlette's and pancakes.

We're regulars here! They have freshly made orange juice, green juices and smoothies. I love their avocado bacon omelette, corned beef hash, thin French toast. My husband likes their minced eggs and ham as well as whatever fancy pancake special they're offering. Very child friendly. We're here at 7:30am so we don't deal with crowds😀

We were a Sunday morning party of 14 on the weekend before Christmas and.....not a problem! We were seated at one (long) table, our breakfast selections were served in a timely manner, and every one of us enjoyed what we had. I had eggs and sausage and two pancakes, and everything was delicious. Most of us had some variation of... More

A group of about 15 of us went to Elly's Pancake House in Norridge to meet for a pre-Christmas breakfast. The staff was very accommodating, as we were able to sit together, even though it was one of those busy pre-Christmas shopping days. Everyone found the food to their liking. I ordered a tuna melt with coleslaw and it was... More
