The staff was super friendly, nice family run restaurant. Appeared clean. Had the chicken park which was great. Kids enjoyed spaghetti and ravioli.

First off, this is a diner not a 5 star restaurant - seems like a couple other reviewers thought maybe it was. That said, their breakfast is fabulous - all homemade and huge portions. They have the best omelets - they absolutely stuff them with so much of whatever you want. My husband and son shared one and still did not finish it. All of the waitresses were very friendly and joking around even though the place was packed. It is a little run down looking but the food was well worth it - would have loved to try the pies or other desserts. Next time we are in Old Forge we will definitely stop here again.

Walt's really rocks in the morning. We found the place packed and bustling at 9:00 on a rainy summer weekday. Offerings are standard breakfast fare. French toast, made from homemade Italian bread, had a strong grill flavor but was generous and hearty. This diner does not offer real maple syrup--if this matters to you, bring your own. Service was brisk and we left satisfied. This is a good bet for starting a day in Old Forge.

The food is terrible. Hamburgers/cheeseburgers are made from frozen patties. The portions are tiny. They cook the chicken in with the same grease and the fish. Very pricy for what you get. I'd pick somewhere else.

If you want to have a snack that place is good for you, but it isnt good enough if you are with kids and family. Tables are dirty, smells, staff is inattentive...so thats why im giving 3 stars only
