A few of us hadn't been to Walker Roadhouse in over a year so we decided to try their lunch specials. The restaurant wasn't crowded when we arrived but tables seemed to fill up even with reduced capacity inside. Our server took a long time...to even stop at the table and bring us water. We decided to order once we saw her again. She had little knowledge of the menu and kept recommending perch to us, even though I made it clear that one of us had a food allergy to perch and we didn't want it. (Was there some reason to push the fish?) We each ordered from the lunch menu. I ordered the Smoked Brisket Tacos, the others at the table ordered a Prime Rib French Dip Sandwich and California Reuben. The brisket tacos were supposed to be served with chips and salsa; the other two sandwich orders asked for fries with their sandwiches for an up charge. Tacos were sparsely filled and the sour cream was not on them as shown on the menu, so I asked about this and was told it was an extra charge. The menu clearly says it is served 'with sour cream' so I was annoyed. I think our server just didn't know the menu specials and the kitchen failed to put it on the tacos. Meat was dried out and tasteless and it had more pico de gallo than anything else. My friend's California Reuben was delivered to the table but ended up being the wrong sandwich once he noticed that it had sauerkraut on it. Again, the server did not know what sandwiches had certain condiments. The other sandwich, the Prime Rib, had a few small slivers of lunch meat style beef and a few onions with a slice of melted cheese. The au jus that came with it was salty, boxed beef broth according to my other friend who also said that the 'homemade french bread' was clearly from Gordon Food Service. Both of these sandwiches didn't get the requested fries; they had the default side of potato chips. Overall, the food and service won't bring us back. We had to ask multiple times for separate checks and our server didn't have basic math skills to recalculate a few things for us. We rounded up for her and just chalked the entire experience up to a lesson learned. Plenty of other places on the Westside for a better meal served by better wait staff.More

The fish (I had perch and my husband had the walleye) was fantastic! Atmosphere was nice and clean and they are abiding by the rules during the covid crisis. Service was great too

Outstanding food quality and great atmosphere - do yourself a favor and go to this delightful place! The staff is top shelf, knowledgeable and totally professional, delivering a great experience with a charming attitude typical of West Central Michigan. The appetizers and entrees are excellent,...and the wine list and draft beer selection is very good. After the health crisis is over please patronize this wonderful neighborhood establishment!More

Large and cozy space with friendly staff but wasn't impressed with the food. The chowder was extremely bland while the rice and ham soup was so salty, it was nearly inedible. The Korean lettuce wraps were just okay. My daughter and I were both sick...after eating there. The children's chicken and fruit was a nice surprise though. I wish the server had told me about their specials because the goat cheese omelette looked really good. ☹️More

Always good eats in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our server, Angela, provided excellent service with a smile. We highly recommend...and ask for Angela.

The walker roadhouse is a great place to eat. Good food and great service. The downside is their cocktails r weak so I’ll usually have ice tea or wine. Another downside is they don’t take reservations nor r I allowed to call ahead. U can...have up to an hour wait. However, the menu, food and prices r great.More

With a large group and the food was good. A bit loud, but it is called a roadhouse. Many beers to choose from and a wide menu.

Our daughter wanted a good steak dinner as break from dorm food. Upon recommendations from other parents, we decided to try Walker Roadhouse. The restaurant was full but not packed and we didn't have to wait for a table. But, we would be waiting the...rest of the night. Our server was very slow and seemed overwhelmed. 45 minutes later, we still hadn't gotten our food and watched other tables around us (that had arrived after us) enjoy their meals. We received many promises that our food was coming right up only to find out our server forgot to put our order in. We asked for the manager and then we finally received our order. Our steaks were basically raw - so the order was hurried. We had to send them back and wait some more while we ate our sides. When we finally received our cooked steaks, they were delicious. Sides and dinner rolls were also very good. We later saw the manager delivering another steak to a different table after it was also sent back. I guess the cooks do not know how long to cook a steak. The manager did take care of us with a nice discount but it was a very long wait. We would probably give this place one more try as the food was very good.More

I have eaten there several times. Food is always good and comes out all together HOT! Their menu changes every so often and there is something for everyone on the menu. I have had their pork chop dinner, Thai dinner, a steak, a chicken dinner...and all the trimmings for each. There has been nothing that I didn't like. You can also order al a carte using side dishes if you want to. There are no reservations and this place fills up fast, but people are served quickly and the wait usually is not too long. Handicapped individuals can be accommodated easily. It is a favorite of ours and I hope you like it too!More

We ate at Walker Roadhouse yesterday for a late lunch/early dinner upon the recommendation from our local hotel staff. It did not disappoint! Everything from the dinner rolls, lobster bisque soup, fish tacos, and beef medallions was so yummy! Beef medallions were some of the...BEST I've ever eaten! Prices are a bit higher, but not outrageous for the quality of food you receive. I'd come here again!More
