Perfect pizza

This is without a doubt the best pizza in the state of Illinois. The double crust version is my favorite, but everything they do here is heavenly. I even order extra when I travel to this area and take it home with me. Go for the buffet to find your favorite, then come back and eat a whole pie... read more

Excellent lunch , buffet style. Multiple styles of pizza are on the buffet, eat as soon as you are seated so no time spent waiting on food. But the hot pastas and the soup bar are my favorites. 3 types of pasta at all times. Very good food in a nice cozy atmosphere. Also has a nice, though not huge,... More

My family and I recently visited. We had the best pizza and calzone we have ever eaten. We are huge fans of pizza and often frequent pizza places on our travels. This is hands down the best pizza ever! The server was very friendly. The salad bar was very fresh and nicely kept.

Came thorough Marion, Il on 1Saturday night. Asked the desk clerk at the hotel to recommend the best pizza in town. She said Walts is her favorite so I stopped in. There is little I can add to the recent reviews. This place is a good value for the money with a menu that most people looking for Italian or... More

We visited Walt's a couple of times on our last trip to Marion. Loved their house salads. The service was great and the seating comfortable. Chicken parmesan, spaghetti, and pizza's were all very tasty.

This place was recommended by our Hotel Staff. It is a nice place with a variety to choose from. Has nice outdoor seating and it is quiet indoors. Food is served quick and hot. They have a nice salad bar also.

Wonderful food. Heard about this during our travels on the Shawnee Wine Trail. Was not disappointed! The food was freshly made and delicious. Our server Megan was very attentive but not overbearing. If you are in the Marion, IL area, put this on your list, you will not be disappointed!!

Walt's means pizza. The Double Decker is great. If you go to Marion, Walt's is the place to go for pizza. Also the wings, salads, sandwiches and beer are a treat. Don't miss Walt's! You won't be disappointed. Atmosphere and service are friendly. Salad bar, too.

They have thin and double decker as crust choices....both are great , but they are known for their double decker. The sauce is very distinct w/ a nice garlic-y flavoring. I cant say much about other items on the menu because i cant imagine going to Walts and not getting pizza. There is no reason to have to resort to... More

The double-decker pizza is heaven!!! It's not the best place to know if you have bad knees since there are stairs, but the food is good.
