Fast, friendly service and good food. Nothing extravagant but a good diner in a convenient location. Be careful if you order the pancakes, they are the size of a hubcap.

Walts is the only place I could find open at 6am. Lots of locals having their morning brew and breakfast. Some nice homemade pies. Great place for breakfast or lunch.

I visited Walt's Diner in July and my experience there was amazing! Right at the second when I came in I know that I am not going to regret it - the smell of fresh coffee, crispy bacon and fried eggs has made my day. I wanted to sit at the counter (to see all the action, as the kitchen... More

We stopped for breakfast around 11am on our way out of town. It was super busy but it only took about 10 minutes to get a table. The food was delicious. The pancakes were as large as the plates! Our server was attentive with coffee refills and the food tasted delicious. And our family of 4 ate a giant meal... More

Delicious breakfast served hot and fresh by friendly staff! Perfect breakfast place. Firm the moment you walk in you smell the hot coffee, bacon frying and pancakes and syrup. We sat at the end of the counter and got breakfast with a show! You can see the chef and his cooks making your breakfast right there! They were working like... More

had breakfast here with my husband and 2 kids. Food choice was amazing, prices were great. Serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Outdoor seating is available though minimal. Our food was fantastic. Our waitress was very friendly but I think maybe had too many tables as service from her was slow. We will definitely return to this restaurant though, for sure.

After a 2 year break (been going since it upened) we went back to Walt's for breakfast. It took an agonizing 45-50 minute wait to get a simple breakfast. Meanwhile 2 locals came in and received their food within 5 minutes. When the food arrived, I noted that their portion size had been downsized. We used to go to Walt's... More
