To avoid continental breakfast at the hotel, this is a highly desirable alternative. Small town atmosphere with plenty of locals seeking their first and third hit of java. The all-in $11 omlette is monstrous, so don't plan on having lunch later on. Even dinner may be just have to be a snack. Staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.

The food is good, a little cramped. Bathroom facilities could be improved. Wait staff appearance could be cleaned up

Very good food, great service, clean and low prices. What else! Don't order too much food, the portions are very generous. Especially good for breakfast. The waitresses keep your coffee cup full and are always in good humor.

Portions are very large, one pancake is the size of a large dinner plate. The omelet that I had was delicious

We enjoyed three very good breakfasts at "Walt's Diner" during our recent stay in Old Forge. Oh my gawd, the pancakes are huge! Nice crispy bacon, flavorful sausage, eggs cooked perfectly, and very good coffee - what more could you ask for! The waitresses are all very friendly too.

Good comfortable diner food at diner prices. Great for breakfast or a sandwich lunch (I have not had dinner there). Located in the heart of Old Forge with convenient (and that's important in the Forge) parking.

After reading all the positive Trip Advisor reviews, our family chose Walt’s diner for breakfast. We loved it! The pancakes were huge (size of a small pizza) and delicious. The homemade Italian toast was also a hit. The muffins were fresh and tasty. The biscuits and gravy were made from premium sausage and there was a good balance of crunchy... More

Went in this morning for breakfast and as usual it was delicious. The muffins are great! The food quantities are large and priced very reasonably. Staff is always very pleasant and it is just a fun place to stop and eat.

Nothing fancy here. Just good food. We've eaten here at least 20 times. We've never gotten a bad meal. Lots of comfort food. The soups are home made. Plenty of great meals for children. On a busy day in Old Forge it may be hard to get a table. Last ate there this past August. We go up to Old... More
