No better place for breakfast than Walts. Humongous pancakes...plain, blueberry, or chocolate chips. Waitstaff Very Busy and Pleasant. Dave, the main cook and Owner, plies his skill at the grill and pans to make everyone a special meal. Recommended.

Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Just a question if our bill was accurate. The pastrami was fantastic.

I eat here frequently as I work in Old Forge. Usually sit at the counter and enjoy watching the cooks at the grills! Love the soups, egg/olive sandwiches, and Walts has the BEST FISH FRY IN OLD FORGE-- Delicious haddock sandwiches and dinners on Fridays.

Popular joint for breakfast. Team works to get people in and out. Very friendly! A bit slow in the kitchen, but understandable with how busy they are.

Typical diner breakfast, our group ordered 3 pancakes ,1 regular and 2 blueberry, 2 scrambled eggs, sausage links and Italian toast. The toast was cold - butter not even melted and about 2 tablespoons on each slice, the eggs were cold as well. Pancakes are huge - the size of the dinner plate and are typical diner pancakes. The waitress... More

After a recent camping trip to the Adirondacks we made a stop to Walt's Diner with family. We had told them about the huge great pancakes and more. We all wanted breakfast and it was 11:30 ish. Unfortuantely no breakfast... they do not serve it only certain days like Sunday later now. We thought they did breakfast all day. So... More

When I think of a diner, several things come to mind - quick service, extensive menu, all day breakfast. Walt's "Diner" has none of these. We arrived after the lunch rush (about 2:00pm) so I didn't expect to wait too long. It took a while to get seated, even though there several tables free. It took longer to place our... More

There's no wonder why there is often a line out the door. Walts has all your breakfast favorites, including pancakes as big as a plate! Egg whites are sometimes unavailable for omelettes and coffee could be better, otherwise I would have given 5 stars!
