“Now this is a reason to visit Florida!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

I just cannot say enough good things about the seafood available for dinner at this restaurant. Our server talked me into trying the Hog Snapper and i have to tell you it's out of this world and I've been craving it ever since we left! Everything is caught fresh straight out of the Gulf of Mexico the day before and boy can you tell the freshness.

This is a must-do restaurant in Sarasota....you'll love it!

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

What a fantastic meal. Special thanks to Heather and Jordan who greeted us and were so gracious with so many folks waiting for tables. They are lovely young women and added to the pleasure of dining at Walt's. Best sea bass ever!

“Another great visit to Walt's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Walt's is one place that you can count on to get great seafood...Its hard to choose off their menu because everything is great. Our waitress was a little slow this time but the staff generally is very helpful. I had grouper and oysters- with okra. The Oysters were wonderful. The grouper was a little thin but tasty. We also purchase some fresh shrimp to take home. We cooked it in beer that night-very yummy. Enjoy!

“My Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

When I go to Florida, I have to eat at Walt's at least once. It's not a fancy place but the fish is always really fresh and really, really delicious. If you like seafood, you have to go to Walt's. The smoked mullet spread alone is worth the visit.
