We went to dinner this week at Walters with a party of 4, one is a vegan --He found things to his liking . The food was good and the service was exceptional. They offer specials as well as their regular menu. We have never had a bad meal at Walters.

I used to love this place. Several years back, the restaurant went through some much needed renovation and all was still good (to be honest though, the service has never been great, just fine), but the food was awesome. The food is still good, but has had some significant price increases to the point that it just doesn't make sense.... More

I have never gotten sick here, but I have heard of several people who have. I usually enjoy myself--eat vegetarian here, and you'll be just fine.

Brunch at the bar is an interesting experience.Paintings on walls and ceilings are attractive.Service is attentive .Food is abundant and good.I had two eggs with excellent hash browns accompanied with whole wheat nan (afghan bread). Gravelax salmon with a kind of dutch sauce is also superb.We were a group of 14 celebrating the birthday of my grandson.

They have the BEST clam chowder! It is not always on the menu, but when it is, it rivals even Monteray Bay area!

The food has been mediocre (not even bad enough to be terrible) twice. The service is always abysmal. It is a family run place and the nieces who are the servers don't have to worry. It is all just bad. There are a lot of places to eat in the Village and in Claremont. Even nice places where you can... More

Walters has wonderful food and generous drinks but the noise level is deafening. It's pretty inmpossible to have any kind of conversation. That said, I still keep going back because it's really that good.

Had dinner with family including two youngsters. Friendly staff, attentive. Menu is influenced by Afghan owners but ethnic dish I had was a little disappointing compared to authentic Afghan restaurant I have eaten at. Large menu offers a full range of interesting items though. This place is very large with a really nice indoor outdoor patio that adds lots of... More

I’ve been to Walter’s Restaurant several times for dinner only. It is a large restaurant with apparently three different seating areas. The front seems to be the more bar like area, then there is an indoor patio and an outdoor patio and then a large, long room that goes in the back with a fireplace at the back. When walking... More
