The best food in town.

Walker's Derek Emerson, owner and chef has collected a group of chefs and wait people that are friendly and knowledgable about the excellent food that they serve. Derek had 2 other restaurants but Walker's is my favorite. It's in the historic Fondern neighborhood. We go a least once a week.

Old school diner. Food is ok and the atmosphere is ok. Not too much privacy while eating. You will run into everyone you know there. Recommend burgers.

The scallops, caesar salad, garlic mashed potatoes and fried onions were all so tasty, we returned for a second meal during our trip.

My friends and I visited this place mid-year 2015 and was very disappointed. The staff was clearly overwhelmed, their service skills were horrible, and food was cold. Not what we expected for a high end restaurant. We will not go back.

We were in town for just one night and elected to eat at Walkers, which was an excellent choice. I started with the Beet Carpaccio Salad which was incredibly delicious. Lovely fresh greens, oranges, feta cheese, perfectly cooked thin cut beets topped with fried onions and Green Goddess dressing. Complex and satisfying. Next I had the red fish which I... More

Small but well worth a visit. Easy to locate from Lime street railway station. Close to other attractions such as the Liverpool library and museum. The cathedrals are within easy walking distance.

Don't let the name "Walker's Drive In" fool you, as even though it is a "drive-in" converted to a restaurant, it's more of an slightly upscale restaurant. No one is wearing blue jeans here! The food was great. Because it was our first time here, after we got checked into our hotel, we headed on over. The waiter was nice... More

Outstanding restaurant for a quick delicious lunch. On weekends they have a steak that rivals any you have had.

This was not a good experience at all. Unfortunately, we came at the wrong time. I believe the place stops serving at 2 p.m. We were there by 1 p.m. so I thought we would have plenty of time to eat. The waiter seemed nice but when I chose my side orders, he pushed other sides for mine and others'... More

We enjoy taking our adult children for special dinners at Walkers. The Redfish Anna is always delicious. I love the tamales for lunch or as an appetizer at dinner.
