We were at Walts Diner for breakfast twice since Dec 2016. Both times were pleasant experiences. Staff friendly, food very good! Nothing I can think of to complain about!

We went here for breakfast and the place was packed that Saturday. Prices are average, plates are big and staff is friendly. I have to say it is one of the few places open in the winter. We drove there and there are 3 big potholes at the entrance that need to be fixed.

Food was good (especially the chili). However, one of us ordered chili and salad, the other a sandwich: The server brought the chili first and there was a wait of about 15 minutes before she brought the salad. Then another 10 minutes before the sandwich was delivered. Great dessert selections, including no-sugar-added apple pie. Unfortunately winter hours are very limited... More

Let's face it, It's Walts why would you go anywhere else ? If you haven't figured that out yet, you must be new to Old Forge "Best Breakfast in Town"

One guy in our group ordered the blueberry pancakes and they were served on a large plate and were as big as the plate. He said they were delicious. So delicious that he ordered them 2 days in a row. I had an omelet that was fantastic as well. High quality and large portions!

Stopped here after spending the weekend in Old Forge. Great big breakfast. Was perfect for my 5 hour ride home. Pancake, eggs, bacon, and toast. The biggest pancake Ive ever had and yummy.

We absolutely love Walts Diner! Everything is delicious but we especially love breakfast. And that homemade Hot Sauce is out of this world! I need the recipe!

Excellent! We went in for breakfast and the food and service were great! Went to a couple other places in town to eat, but for breakfast this is hands down the best place in town.

Both times we visited Walt's it was full of customers, mostly locals - always a good sign. The wait staff is hopping but friendly and good natured. We got our food with a reasonable wait. The food is tasty and cooked right. We tried the huge pancake, the biscuits and sausage gravy (excellent!), the poached eggs and the "quickie" -... More

If you like pancakes (and you're really hungry) this place is for you. Just a quaint Upstate NY diner in town. Just fyi it's a little difficult to get to via snowmobile. You've got to ride on roads. Anyway, loved it!
