“Fresh Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Great atmosphere for the tiki bar outside. The inside is all about the fresh fish. A free starter let us sample a new-to-us fish, which we much appreciated. Fried oysters were uneven and ran the gamut from ho-hum to sublime, fried grouper was fine. Amberjack was only ok – maybe it just wasn’t to our taste. Hog snapper was perfectly cooked. Sides of rice and new potatoes matched the dishes well. Sweet potato fries not worth it.

“AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

I loved everything about this restaurant. From arrival to the end we had a great experience. I ordered the Walt's Steamer and it was enough food for my daughter and I. The other members order the Tilapia and Fried Shrimp. I wish I was close to this place because this would have to be a weekly stop for me. The food, service, atmosphere and price were all fantastic.

“Chef specials are a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Walts has always had the largest and freshest selection of fresh seafood in town. Now that they have a true chef in the kitchen it can't be beat! Go early to get a table and bring home fish the following day.
