Yummers!

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... read more

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.

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...

I loved The Walrus! It looks deceiving, I was questioning my friends who wanted to dine there. However, I had an absolutely fantastic glass of wine and salmon salad. Our server was efficient and friendly, we were never for want. Overall, the exterior doesn't represent what the restaurant delivers. Give it a try!

So on the road ,alone as usual, someone suggested Walrus. Quiet ,yet I was tucked away in a corner. Ordered and like an assembly line beer, salad and food no gap. Watery spaghetti sauce, over cooked meatballs. Saw my waitress once.

The location of this, in a small strip mall, hides a little gem quite well. The inside is clean and nicely decorated. The food and service were good, and we had an enjoyable lunch.
