Love their food very yummy. We had fish and a salad. I would say the salad didn’t have enough dressing on it but it was still very good.

This restaurant was fun...it was busy, but service was really good. The cooks are right up front and are cooking their little hearts out while people are watching, The food that they put out in such a timely fashion was pretty amazing!!

We had our dog with us during our stay in Old Forge, so sit down meals weren’t an option in October. We were thrilled Walt’s Diner offered takeout. We called ahead and placed our order. My husband went in to grab it and said it...More

This place has a pretty good breakfast. We ordered omelettes. They were of a decent size. Their coffee was also good.

I am not the owner, call Walt's or find another place to eat. It is NOT expensive for the portions you get.
