Enjoyed our breakfast. Kids LOVED their pancake, husband enjoyed the corned beef hash and my omelet was great - it was so big I could only make it halfway through it. Would definitely stop again.

When in Old Forge, you must eat at Walt's Diner. We had lunch that was very good and served by a friendly waitress. If you like the diner experience, then go to Walt's.

What a great place! It was busy but we did not mind sitting at the counter, in fact it was fun watching the cooks do their job! This is comfort food at its finest! Would highly recommend a meal at Walt's
