Great down home breakfast

Had breakfast here on our way out of town and it was the perfect cap to our trip. This came highly recommended from our waitress at Five Corners Cafe the night before, which is right down the street. Basic diner menu, with all the classics, no frills. But what they do, they do well. I had the... read more

Ordered a tomato & cheese omelet the first day. Waitress forget to order tomatoes. There was way too much cheese, and it wasn't even melted. However, on my return the next day Han &... More

I normally after visiting a place and have had two bad encounters not ever go back. But on a recent outing to Old Forge NY we were recommended again to try Walt's Diner. I against my better judgement decided to give it a try. We were very much surprised to find things have changed. A cook/owner with a passion and... More

We haven't been to Walt's in a while and decided to stop for lunch. Even on a Tuesday, the diner was busy. We sat right down and got menus right away. Our waitress was friendly and came back several times to make sure we had what we wanted. I had a BLT - which was very good - the tomatoes... More

Great breakfast spot in OF. The pancake is huge and so yummy. Quick Service with a smile. The other breakfast items are tasty too but I'm a sucker for the pancake.

When it's 14 below zero, you need an awesome bowl of soup and a tasty sandwich, besides a good car battery and a down coat. Well, Walt's can take care of food part of this requirement. We had a delicious bowl of ham soup that had so much meat that the soup had trouble finding a place in the bowl.... More
