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

They serve a nice breakfast for the money. I didn't care for the seasoned home fries but that's more of a personal preference. Prices were reasonable & service was good. We would go back.

The workers at Walt's are always so friendly and accommodating. The food is absolutely fantastic! If you have to wait for a seat, believe me, it's WELL worth it.

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
