Happy customer!

No slacking on quality or quantity here! Friendly staff and good service. Most importantly the staff never stands still! If they aren't taking care of customers they are cleaning and stocking! It is evident that they care about what they do!

Food is good, pancakes are huge. we love the atmosphere of Walt's. The servers are great! Need to get there early on weekends because there is almost always a wait.

We will be back! Sausage and biscuits aren't as good as some other places near by but I heard the pancakes were out of this world!

A very loud busy diner... We were there for lunch while we were visiting Old Forge. The lunch was decent. The service was just OK: she made a mistake on my order but would not admit it and did not offer to fix it.

Went here for lunch with another family. It was disappointing that the restaurant does not do split checks. The food was OK but not spectacular. The potato chips were stale. The environment was like a typical diner. It can be difficult to move when the restaurant is crowded. The decor is inviting, with many humorous signs on the wall.

Desserts looked delicious but lunch was too filling. We had no room. It was a nice, friendly place. And lunch was delicious.

We had breakfast at Walt's this past week. I had a western omelette and my wife had the oatmeal. Both were very good. The omelette was very large and the portion of oatmeal was as well. Excellent food and service
