Old Forge gets busy and there are lots of tourists but Old Forge has it's mainstays. Walt's is one of them. Great food...almost too much food. Busy but never rushed. Staff are super and a combination of locals and college kids. Just homey and comfortable.

I ordered the prime rib, wife got chicken parmesan, kids got ravioli and spaghetti. It all tasted very good, and decent portions for a decent price. The waitress was very friendly and almost felt like family.

We walked to Walts Diner each morning from Clark Mote. Waitress brought fresh coffee quickly. My hushand had oatmeal each morning. My son and I had omlets and pancakes and all dishes were good.

First off, this is a diner not a 5 star restaurant - seems like a couple other reviewers thought maybe it was. That said, their breakfast is fabulous - all homemade and huge portions. They have the best omelets - they absolutely stuff them with so much of whatever you want. My husband and son shared one and still did... More

Walt's really rocks in the morning. We found the place packed and bustling at 9:00 on a rainy summer weekday. Offerings are standard breakfast fare. French toast, made from homemade Italian bread, had a strong grill flavor but was generous and hearty. This diner does not offer real maple syrup--if this matters to you, bring your own. Service was brisk... More

The food is terrible. Hamburgers/cheeseburgers are made from frozen patties. The portions are tiny. They cook the chicken in with the same grease and the fish. Very pricy for what you get. I'd pick somewhere else.

If you want to have a snack that place is good for you, but it isnt good enough if you are with kids and family. Tables are dirty, smells, staff is inattentive...so thats why im giving 3 stars only

This place is my go-to when in Old Forge. It is not fancy but you are always guaranteed a great meal of homemade specialties. I love the french fries which are hand cut when you order. They always have homemade soups as well as daily specials. The servers are nice and friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Great breakfast, not my favorite cup of coffee, but the rest was well worth it! An adirondack classic breakfast!
