Sure she'll go to Simply Crepe's nearby because it is really good, but he may prefer Wally's Pub for the greatest burger I ever had. Wife and I came in the back way down the stairs and while the décor is 1954 and clean, don't expect a hostess to seat you. Just put it down on a wobbly stool at... read more

We had been here before & enjoyed ourselves. The burgers are good but we wanted to try their pizza. I'll just say we should have stuck with the burgers.

Food is generally good here. Burgers are usually good, although my last one was way overdone. Problem here is service. Sometimes the bartenders are good. Sometimes they are too busy talking with the regulars to bother with other people. Today, I tried for 10 minutes to get the bartender's attention; I needed another beer, and they had forgotten part of... More

We decided to have burgers and wings in this local bar, it had good reviews and we liked their food especially the burgers, it's a good place to go for a fun time to have a couple drinks, good food and see some local people hanging out and having fun. Not classy just blue collar. friendly,clean fun

Perfect old time bar/burgers. Everyone is friendly--reminds me of CHEERS. Keith, who tends bar on Sundays, is the BEST!

Simply put, "Wally's" is a locals bar that serves good bar food. They are most noted for two food items, chicken wings and the famous "Wally Burger". Being a sales rep in Western NY, I've had more than my share of buffalo chicken wings in my travels around upstate NY. I got to admit the wings at Wally's are the... More

I was traveling with my 14 year old son and even after searching on Trip Advisor and Google, wasn't sure that this pub wasn't a full fledged "You must be 21" kind of bar. But we were in the mood for wings and decided to give it a try and we're disappointed. Yes, it's mainly a bar, with a small... More

This is one of those backstreet "holes"/"dives" that reminds me of Cheers.... out of the way.. eclectic/old decor.. menus (bar food) all over the walls (complete with price changes visible).. but some of the most fun, diverse people hang out at Wally's.. Never a bad time.. Our favorite is the famous Wally Burger.. we also LOVE their Buffalo Chicken Wings... More
