Really tasty food

We went, and got some steak and a calzone. The food was delicious. Also, it was reasonably priced. Our server, Jennifer, was very friendly and helpful. We recommend the steak with ravioli.

The service is fast and friendly with reasonable prices. The wooden benches are uncomfortable but they have a great patio.

We did carry out from Walt's during an overnight rest stop on a cross country road trip. Looking at the menu and reviews online, we went with one of the special think crust pizzas ~ the California and then an order of toasted ravioli. Pizza was good, crunchy and perfectly cooked. This pizza had an olive oil sauce and it... More

I really like the fact that Walt's has a reasonably-priced lunch buffet every Tuesday - Thursday. I HIGHLY recommend the sausage/meatballs/peppers and onions dish...I go back for seconds every time. The salad bar is the BEST in Marion, as only the freshest ingredients are used. In addition, the staff works hard to keep the salad bar well-stocked and clean. While... More

We had two tables with 8 each. Each table had different waitress. It was a Friday night so yes they were busy. We ordered with two people ordering self serve salad bars. My dinner salad arrived and I ask for silverware, after 5 minutes they brought ONE set of silverware. We ask for silverware for the table, it never came.... More

We were heading into Marion and saw the billboard for Walts and that it had won a trip advisor award. We had to see what the double decker pizza was all about. I nice local place with an extensive menu. Sure its a little dated as far as the decor goes, but we enjoyed our meal. Our server was very... 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.

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 pizza was served hot. A medium... More

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
