Claremont classic

You can't go wrong at Walter's. There is a good choice of dishes, the atmosphere (indoor and outside) is conducive to good eating, and the food is very good. The service is fine.

I hate to write a poor review about Walters, and you can see my other reviews are mostly positive, because I rarely go to a restaurant I haven't already checked out. I've been eating at Walters for at least 15 years. It was once a great place but has not kept up the quality of food or service with its... More

Their happy hour prices are amazing. One of the best Mojitos I've tasted outside of Vegas. Their Asparagus Fries are delicious next to their Tandoori Chicken Wings. This is the 3rd time coming here and I'm not disappointed. Also the waiters are very nice. O

I've been here three times. The salads are really good. The fish/meat entrees are a bit pricey but tasty. It has a nice ambiance. Service has always been good.

I love Walters for a lot of reasons; Afghan fries, beef stroganoff, and bowlanies! If you're brave of heart, the spicy pasta is dangerously good (ask for a side of the yoghurt sauce to temper the heat). But, by far, the best reason to love Walters is the stellar staff, especially the patio bartender, Bill, who is a wizard with... More

Made the mistake of having breakfast at this place. Definitely the worst French Toast ever. Dry cheap bread. You need to drink lots of fluids to avoid chocking. My wife had the Waffle. Same problem. Service was good but we will never return.

Like the food and Bartender Bill on the patio. It is reasonably priced and if you are a regular, you can get a Walter's card and collect points. We are regulars, as we like the remodeled outdoor patio with fire pits and water fountains. Deserts are made in house, and the appetizers for happy hour are awesome. Try the bolwanies-a... More

This place has been there for MANY years and grown from a hole in the wall coffee shop to an in/out door restaurant. Read the menu to see if you like the offerings, if you do you'll like the way they do it. Good food/presentation/fresh/enough to fill you up. Due to it's growth/expansion over the years eclectic is a good... More

We went to the restaurant for lunch. We had the chicken Caesar salad with, not kidding you, maybe 8 small squares of chicken. The Thai beef salad had much more meat but over cooked and the dressing too vinegary. The bread we ordered was fresh baked and wonderful. Easy to get a table. Many patrons who appeared to be regulars.... More

Yes, it's been around forever, and there are a lot of shiny new places in town, but Walter's is a steadfast favorite. The big menu features a mix of mediterranean and Afghan offerings along with various vegetarian options. Some favorites include the Tandoori Salmon and the Corn Cakes with Black Beans. The Salata is a great light and flavorful meal... More
