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

Friendly and quick service. Food was tasty. But, charging $1.50 extra per sandwich for lettuce, tomato and mayo seems unreasonable. Also, there are no refills on cold drinks.

You can't go wrong with a breakfast at Walts. This is a very popular local establishment. Everything is made to order with the freshest of ingredients. The service is excellent as is the food and the prices are very reasonable.

My husband ordered something that started with a "G" made with meat and veggies, eggs and cheese. Huge and deelish. Not being a breakfast eater, I orderered Utica Greens which I enjoyed very much with a half slice of toast. Reasonably priced and good food.

Having been a former cook, I loved the ballet while watching breakfast crew make meals. Waite staff was well trained and quick. We sat at the counter and got to order fairly quick. I had a dish but I don't remember the name. Basically it was like a breakfast bowl. It was hot and great tasting. Vegetables were fresh tasting... More

We visited Walt's for breakfast on our way home after a long weekend in Old Forge. The food was good and generously portioned. Typical diner fare for breakfast. Wait staff were friendly. Service was good. Coffee was good. The place is much larger than it looks from the outside.

After having several rough dining experiences during the week, my wife and I visited Walt's on a Friday night with very low expectations. Thankfully, we were pleasantly surprised. I ordered the seafood platter and was very pleased. The platter came with four shrimp, a half dozen scallops, a large piece of breaded haddock, cole slaw, and french fries. To say... More
