I'd enjoy the atmosphere and general vibe. The food was good and great location. My only complaint is they are open seem so short.

We were in Old Forge for the day (a trip to The View), and wanted to grab a late lunch before driving home. So many places were not open for the season, or didn't open until 4:00pm! So - we went to Walt's for the first time. I had the BLT with a side of onion rings, and my husband... More

We were at Walts Diner for breakfast twice since Dec 2016. Both times were pleasant experiences. Staff friendly, food very good! Nothing I can think of to complain about!

We went here for breakfast and the place was packed that Saturday. Prices are average, plates are big and staff is friendly. I have to say it is one of the few places open in the winter. We drove there and there are 3 big potholes at the entrance that need to be fixed.

Food was good (especially the chili).

One guy in our group ordered the blueberry pancakes and they were served on a large plate and were as big as the plate. He said they were delicious. So delicious that he ordered them 2 days in a row. I had an omelet that was fantastic as well. High quality and large portions!

Stopped here after spending the weekend in Old Forge. Great big breakfast. Was perfect for my 5 hour ride home. Pancake, eggs, bacon, and toast. The biggest pancake Ive ever had and yummy.

We absolutely love Walts Diner! Everything is delicious but we especially love breakfast. And that homemade Hot Sauce is out of this world! I need the recipe!
