One of my favorite restaurants. I was quite sad last year when they were no longer in their location but found out they had moved a few streets away. Great service, great food, nice atmosphere and good drink. Well worth a wait. We had the trout and the lamb and both were great. I have to say I have never... More

We were looking for a wonderful meal to cap our anniversary weekend visit to Portland and Walter's was just that. Make sure you try the appetizers, both my husband and I were astounded by the fried green tomatoes with crab salad and the ahi tuna. Both were very fresh and bursting with flavor. Our entrees were equally as well crafted.... More

Getting a table for dinner on the Saturday night of the Labor Day weekend was no easy task but fortunately Walter's was able to squeeze us in. The menu is somewhat eclectic with some interesting twists on southern food and Asian influence in many of the dishes. We found the appetizers to be the most interesting and best part of... More

We had one of those wonderful lunches you always hope for on vacation. We both had the specials from the board and they were both delicious. I had ahi tuna cooked just to the right point of pink/red with oyster mushroom rice and wasabi-mustard tobiko. She had orange duck on a salad. We both enjoyed a wonderful bottle of chardonnay...

A great few hours with my sister Nancy Hutchings and her husband John Hutchings and my wife Dee for appetizers and drinks in Old Port at Walter's. It is almost unnoticeable from the outside, yet the interior ambiance of Walter's was sharp and trendy, yet comfortable. The decor was modern, from the glimmering gas fireplace that greeted you by the... More

Went here late on a Saturday night a we were luckily seated immediately - instantly impressed with our waitress (the perfect mix of attentive without being intrusive). The food was wonderful, we had the calamari which was fresh and lightly fried, and the bistro burger was really delicious! A bit pricey but nothing out of the ordinary for the quality... More

We were a party of 3 and came in as without a reservation. The hostess was very friendly, and despite being full found us a table pretty quickly. We shared the peach salad (Ok, not great) and the appetizer special (really good). Pear martini and 2 glasses of wine all very good. Duck, lobster wih gnocchi and sushi grade tuna... More

Compared to the trendier, better known Portland restaurants this was an oasis of quiet with inventive and well-prepared food. Friendly and efficient service.

My mother in law loves this restaurant so we go every year on our trip to Portland. I have been a non lover since they moved locations, so for a couple years now. This year I think I had the best meal on the table. Everyone was disappointed so I think this will be the last year we come here.... More

Let me start by saying every piece of fish in Portland is fresh and if isn't something is terribly wrong. What makes Walter's stand out is the unique preparation, a fusion of different and unexpected tastes. My appetizer of fried green tomato topped with crab speaks for itself, a delicious peach salad followed by one of the best salmon entrees... More
