This looked like a good restaurant but it turned out to be so-so. The food took forever to get to our table and people who arrived after us got their food before us, really? This place is okay but we would probably go somewhere else again.

The food is good. In the summer you will wait in line for a place to sit. It is very popular for couples and people in their twenties and thirties. The seating is mostly outdoors and there is a bar area.

Very busy due to rain. Outdoor patio packed. We sat at the bar and didn't have to wait long for a table outside, yes, there's large patio umbrellas that protect from rain. I can handle hot food, but the wings were too hot; couldn't taste the meat. Great location.

Food was not very good but that was only part of the bad time at Wally's. Pot roast sandwich was bland with no seasoning. The hostess was very unfriendly and short when asked any questions. We also saw a blond hair women be very rude with another family and it asked who she was the employee told me she was... More

We stopped into Wally's for a drink and snack on Saturday afternoon. It was very busy, but we found two stools at the outdoor bar and settled in. Hubby began talking to a local whose wife soon joined us. Very friendly and gave us great tips on restaurants. The bar tender was friendly and very funny. When the staff is... More

Been to Wally's quite a few times. We've always had great food, drinks, and service. Best Perch in town!

Perch ok but not great, and portion very small; fries pretty terrible. Service very so so. No longer our must-go place.

Very popular place but small, so expect a 45 minute wait on a Friday or 60 minutes on Saturday night in the summer. I always like to sit outside so went during the week and waited about 20 min for outdoor table. Recommend fried perch. One of the best I have ever had. Great teamwork as staff all help each... More

I'm a bit surprised by the disappointed reviewers. Our experience was nothing like theirs. We walked up about 5, there was about a 10 min wait for outdoor table or we could go in for a table. We went in to the only open table which was a 5/6-top, we were 3. We ordered drinks and waiting to order meal... More
