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 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

One of the best pizzas that we ever had. We had the Walt Special double crust. It was delicious, packed with rich flavors inside and out. Along with the double deck, you can also order thin and stuffed pizza. We also had the Cheese nachos. Just excellent! The restaurant itself was very clean, spacious, and bustling with activity. We went... More

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 for... More
