good beer selection

I had a late lunch here before I it was time for my flight. Food is pretty good, service was quick and friendly. The beer list was great, even for a beer snob.

I ate here while on travel and it had the best white pizza ever. I can't remember what it was called but it had chicken bacon and a white sauce on it. You have got to try it.

The food here is great. The only problem is the price. Can't afford to eat here unless it's a special occasion. But the people are great and the food is delicious.

They have a huge selection of beer. I thought that pizza was really good! I liked the staff and the atmosphere.

Unique and reasonably priced. Menu was unusual. Highly recommended to me by a colleague. Several vegetarian offerings. While interesting, I didn't find anything to write home about.

Food was alright, too much salt for our liking. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing, but I do have to say, the fettuccini that came with my salmon was very delicious!

My husband and I have eaten here many times. ALWAYS consistently good food. And service. However, on July 12 we had a completely different experience--we had 3 different waitresses work at our table which can be troublesome. Then one brought my husband the wrong dinner/similar but wrong. He told them nicely ot was wrong. A different girl (maybe the supervisor)... More

Staff are really nice and the food was really good. If ordering pizza specify what sauce you'd like. Italian cuisine withe some very tasty pasta dishes. Sausage Diablo had really nice heat. Can order with either shrimp or sausage. Good craft beer tap selections. Ok bottle selection. Located in strip mall not too far from Capitol building.

Located in a strip mall, this place could easily be overlooked. I like how once you get inside, the lights are dimmed and the vibe is relaxing. Our waitress was friendly and gave us good pointers on the specials and the menu. I had the rib eye with creamy garlic potatoes. The rib eye was seasoned to perfection, and the... More

Like many reviews have stated previously, The Walrus inhabits a strip mall-esque location, near a grocery store, with ample parking. It has a cozy, low key atmosphere, a place that you could take your kid to with no worries, and the food we had was fresh, quality, and delicious---the perfect combination in my opinion. :-) My husband ordered The Maggie...
