After not traveling due to the pandemic, returning to Southampton and the Walker House was like seeing an old friend again! Fabulous service - Heather was so attentive, she always had a smile. Her food and drink recommendations were spot on. Food - So yummy...- come hungry as the portions are generous - and save room for dessert - you will be glad you did. The team at the Walker House are so welcoming and full of smiles. Do not miss coming by when in SH!More

We went for dinner and Steve was our waiter. We were very pleased as Steve has looked after us on a previous ocassion. His service is nothing short of excellent. The food is wonderful, portions are large and the prices are reasonable as well. I...couldn't be happier with The walker house and highly recommend it to anyone who is in the area to give it a try. You won't be disappointed.More

Fun place to visit and has great COVID protocols. Started with the calamari and had the pickerel for my entrée. Food was plentiful and priced more than fair. Our waitress was a blast and made it enjoyable. Street Parking only. Great ambiance!

Went here last night Nov 12 with a couple friends before doing our annual Christmas Home Tour. Been craving fish and chips so that's what I had, was very disappointed the fries were over cooked and the fish was this small skinny piece and the...cold slaw was very bland. Waiter was very nice tho Steven. Not sure that we will be back andbif so will not order the same thing again.More

Stopped in with two friends and a bit of a wait (which is understandable during these covid times). Food was reasonably good (I had the beef dip). Portion was good size, good flavour, reasonable price. We enjoyed the lengthy beer selection which was a highlight....Staff were friendly and chatty. Overall a decent pub that we'd go back to next time we're in South HamptonMore

My wife and I visit this restaurant every year and once again we where happy about our experience. We ordered first the Roasted Mushroom Goat Cheese on flatbread, this was totally awesome, then my wife ordered the Cobb salad, her response was that it was...delicious , I ordered the fish and chips, unfortunately I was not too impressed with it due to the fish was soggy underneath so I wasn’t to happy but still pretty good. Can’t wait till next year.More

Gluten free items are clearly marked in the menu and this was a big factor for us choosing to come here as my daughter has celiac disease. Our server Brett was friendly and knowledgeable, letting us know that she couldn't order the wings or fries...from the kids menu because of cross contamination. We went without a reservation and still got an indoor table with a 20 - 30 min wait. You can tell this place is very popular! We had a bit of a wait after we ordered and the kids were getting antsy, but they explained that they were short-staffed so we expected this. You won't be disappointed by the food! Wow! Soooooo good! We ordered A LOT of food but I think the value for the money is great. The decor is very historic and charming. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be back here again, although I will make a reservation next time.More

A bit confusing to get a table, people complaining outside about you is next, who was booked but there is no reservations, very poorly organized. Very warm inside so we chose the patio facing a side street. We are trying to eat keto so my...wife ordered a veggie burger no bun but things it contain a carb type filler, and ceaser salad with no crotons. I ordered the salad and they both had crotons. I also ordered a burger no bun with onions and bacon, it was very good. On a side note, our meals were delivered with no cutlery, we sat on the patio as our food cooled waiting for a body to come out to get there attention. When you order a burger you would think compliments, ketch up, mustard, salt and pepper would come as well. No another wait for a body to order that as well.More

We’ve had previous good experiences at the Walker House with good food and good service. So we return every summer. On Tuesday, Aug.10, the situation was SO disappointing. Walker House has a large space inside plus a patio so, obviously, they had shut down portions...of the restaurant no doubt due to staff shortages. But Covid or not, there is no excuse for keeping a line of people standing in the hot sun for 35 minutes only to tell them they are at capacity til closing! We joined the line at 5:15 (early for dinner) and the announcement came @ 5:50- more than 2 hours before close- while we were first in line!! Since it was busy, why not delay closing for an hour or so to accommodate those waiting? They are open later on other evenings. I heard a lady comment she would eat fast!!More

After searching the downtown area on foot we noticed a spot on the large leafy patio...an indulgence not experienced in years. The hostess Rachel was most accommodating and gave us the exact corner table available...firtst come first served. Admittedly it was a bit earlyl at...5:45 but we had a four hour drive ahead. The popular veggie burger was unfortunately not available on this Monday so waitress Kayla did not rush us. The chosen New Orleans chowder on special was excellent as were the sweet potato fries and greek salad. No complaints about the veggie wrap either. The warm brick walled setting is complemented by he large HoneyLocust tree in the middle of the patio. This tree should be well looked after!More

Excellent food, attentive service and lovely atmosphere in a heritage building. The Walker House is not taking reservations owing to COVID, so the wait is the only downside....but it is well worth it. Started with the Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms, followed by the Steak and Caesar...salad, cooked to perfection. The only disappointment that I was too full to be tempted by dessert! Definitely would visit againMore

Amazing food and atmosphere! We stopped in for lunch and had a couple of their specials (they did sell out fast of the specials) it was one of the best sandwiches ever! Smoked chicken, bacon and Brie on a hot, soft ciabatta bun-wow! My husband...had a rueben and said it was perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed the mussels as a appy. Patio was so quaint and pretty. A great stop on our visit to South Hampton!More
