Waitress described the $28 lobster mac as ginormous. Maybe for her 100 lbs. but not for my 300! It tasted great though and did contain some big hunks of real lobster. The main entree was 3 scallops and two scoops of other stuff. The creme...More

We've been to Walter's before and enjoyed it. Checked Maine Restaurant Week and we liked this menu the best and for $35-can't beat it! Cocktail menu is decent and the wine list was huge. Ordered the poutine because we didn't know how big the starters...More

Contemporary menu, fresh ideas inspired by great ingredients. Service is timely and well suited to the atmosphere. Saddest day was when Walter’s stopped serving lunch.

Business dinner went smooth and everybody was pleased with the device and food. The duck was done if the best prepared I have tasted. Service was friendly and responsive. Highly recommend.
