A pleasant experience

Our server, Natalie, had to be one of the nicest waitstaff people we came in contact with on our 2 week vacation. Very helpful, personable, attentive and friendly. We had the double decker pizza which was unique: 2 layer pizza and the outer crust is twirled. We never had a pizza like that. The... read more

I ate at Walt's twice over the weekend. The calezone was excellent, all the other dishes were average. Plenty of servers dashing about the restaurant. The salad bar is average too, no thing wrong with it. On the second night we tried the pizza, which was ok. The Chicago area pizza is way better. There is a large outside deck... More

Cannot handle large groups. Took about 50 minutes to seat a group of 14. Staff was rude, especially hostesses. In addition, hostesses were frazzled and, honestly, not bright--I think basic math was the main problem. Did not get forks. Pizza was ok. That was my last trip. Pizza Pro is better pizza.

I truly would like to rate Walt's higher than average but I must be candid. Walt's opened in the 1970's in Marion and has built a successful, proven business. They have a loyal customer base and many absolutely love it ( my wife included ). I feel the pizza is very average with a "twangy" tasting dough. It always seems... More

Our family never travels to Southern Illinois without a stop at Walt's. The double decker is the best pizza anywhere!

Best pizza around! Their lunch buffet is excellent and if you leave there hungry, it's your own fault.

Went there on Thursday night. Very nice atmosphere. We sat on the back deck. The guitar players were a nice add to the evening. The food was very good, but not not excellent. I have had better pizza. I think Morgan?...was our server (tattoo of right upper arm). She did a great job and was very friendly. I would definitely... More
