Had the shrimp pasta special with grilled shrimp. The taste was good, spicy but not too much, and would have it again but was overpriced as was much of the menu. Staff was friendly but did not keep up well with the drinks. Only had water but it was not refilled until dinner was basically over.

I'd heard great things about Walker's and looked forward to checking it out myself. My lamb bolognese was good, but a touch bland. My dining companion's pasta special was also good, but not spectacular. Even though we didn't have a 5-star experience, I'll likely give Walker's another try next time I'm in Billings.

During my last business trip, I stayed at the Northern Hotel and dined at Walker's which is a short walk from the hotel. The Walker's house salad was very fresh and good and the bacon wrapped dates are to die for! For my entrée, I enjoyed the grilled Atlantic salmon. Overall, it was a very enjoyable dining experience. Excellent staff... More

We had a burger and a pasta dish and both loved it . Also dessert was memorable. The atmosphere was elegant and pleasant, and service was very good.

Stayed overnight in Billings at the Northern Hotel and just walked around the corner to here. Well above average modern and tasteful environment, great menu, great staff. We went on a Sunday when they have live jazz and the trio playing were fantastic (Parker Brown trio). Felt like a New York bar from the fifties/Mad Men era. My only disappointment... More

I ordered two small plates; the duck drummettes and the pork belly lettuce cups. Both dishes were tasty but both were overly sauced. The wait staff were attentive and pleasant.

I never come to Billings without having at least one dinner at Walker's. Ate in the bar last night with friends. Our meals were outstanding. Love their pasta. Place is always buzzing. Saw friends and family from Bozeman and Helena. Word gets around when you been serving outstanding food for decades. Best "grownup" bar scene in town.

We had been traveling in Wyoming for a few days before coming to back Billings. The dining choices were limited and average (or worse) while on the road. We really wanted to treat ourselves to a nice meal on our return. After reading several reviews of Walker's we decided to try them for dinner. We arrived without a reservation and... More

Server was very friendly and fully engaged my 13 yet old son. She even took him into the kitchen to meet the Chef. The pork belly appetizer served on individual little beds of Boston lettuce was very good. Chicken tenders were not on the menu but the Chef cooked some anyway for my very finicky 13 yr old!
