Good food - multiple venues onsite

We sat in the courtyard which was tarped for the winter. They also have sidewalk café open air seating, interior rooms and a interior bar (in addition to the bar in the courtyard. The food was typical for a moderate to high end restaurant. Ask about their specials.

popular place to meet, some food specialties are good but overall pretty average. Service is variable.

As a Claremonter a five-minute walk away, Walter's is my regular standby choice - whether for a lunch meeting, treating foreign guests or just catching up with friends. Always reliable, only place I know with breakfast menu including fresh squeezed orange juice. Chicken veggie soup always available - perfect for chilly day or mood (even in southern CA, these happen).... More

We are from Indiana and when we visit family, we always come to Walter's. There were nine of us for breakfast and the waitress was firm, but nice. We had awesome food, mimosas, afghan bread, eggs, hash browns, and their famous coffee cake. We will def return, always do.

What used to be decent fare with fresh ingredients has been transformed into days-old left-overs, over-cooked, highly processed and tasteless grub. Gave the "new" enlarged Walters four attempts to get something resembling food on a plate--breakfasts (twice), lunch and Sunday "buffet"--and left feeling cheated not only because of the high cost of this junk food but the pretentiousness of Walters...

Walters is a Claremont tradition. It's large and busy with lots of hustle and bustle. Indoor and outdoor seating and a bakery. Intimate, it is not. The outside seating is nice and it gets you away from the tumult. The service is good. My issue is with the menu. I am just not sure what this restaurant wants to be.... More

This restaurant has a nice variety of menu items, some with an Afghan influence. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week and it is also a nice place for a party. There is an outdoor patio for daily dining as well.

We have visited Walter's on most visits to Claremont. The menu is large and diverse but the food is always great. They have a great patio on the front for a nice outdoor dining option. The waiters and waitresses are helpful.

Walter's sure has changed for the better! Recently had some alumni-related business, and invited the very helpful employee to lunch. He picked Walter's and I'm glad he did. Great food at fair prices in a pleasant atmosphere with good service. I had a lamb burger to die for.

Sometimes companion and I want a light supper at Walters and their turkey vegetable soup is terrific! Also, Aash soup with ground lamb is a tasty Afghan option. The lamb burger is delicious. I have never had a meal at Walters that I did not like. Sitting out on the patio is pleasant. Good service always. Jane H. Claremont
