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!

Stopped in on a very cold day for lunch. Ordered the taco salad. Salsa was too spicy for me to eat so salad was dry. Had to ask for dressing to help. Iceberg lettuce was the base & not cut up very well. Not worth the money. Should be cheaper. Service was friendly though. Did pay more attention to the... More

Friendly, accommodating staff. Good variety on the menu and breakfast pancakes are served with the real deal Adirondack maple syrup. You get a sense of the community and local culture. Really enjoyed this place.

We had occasion to visit Walt's on two separate occasions a few days apart, both times for lunch. Diners should serve good food in a short time at good prices. Walt's does exactly that, and they do it especially well. On our first visit we both had the taco shell salad with beef, and they we're delicious, freshly made and... More

A day trip to Old Forge and Inlet to avoid Black Friday madness resulted in our stopping at Walt''s Diner for a midafternoon lunch. We arrived to find the place hopping, especially since a party of nine (soon to swell to twelve) arrived at the same time. Nevertheless, after a short wait, we were seated and a very pleasant server... More

Nice little place for breakfast. I'm sure it is much busier during the season, but with snow falling in October, the locals far outnumbered the tourists. Always a good sign!

We had a good breakfast at Walts. The place is larger than it looks. When we were there (Sunday morning) the place was busy but we got right in only after a couple minutes) good portions and everything cooked well. The place was clean and staff was friendly. I would definitely go back.

Thank ThatEndsWell
