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

I am not crazy about this place, I always order the wrong thing and am not happy. My husband loves it and always knows the right thing to order

We've had dozens of meals at Walter's over the last five years, and, sadly, have seen it become mediocre at best and sleazy at worst, as explained below. At first we enjoyed its old-timey ambience (it was founded by the Ghafarshad family 40 years ago, and is something of a Claremont institution), and didn't mind the food being less than... More

I had never heard of the breaded french frys they make and they are very tastey. The food was average other than the fries, but the ambiance was really nice to sit on the patio and see the cars drive by in this quaint town.
