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!

At 8:15 on a Friday morning Main Street was pretty quiet; we saw a couple of people in the doorway of Walt's and got in line behind them. Within a few minutes my 4 year old grandson and I were seated at a table for six; I appreciated the waitress's understanding when I said that other family members would be... More

Good breakfast, good location in town with parking out back. Can be tough to get a seat during busy times.

We were looking for an inexpensive place for dinner in this resort town, and decided a diner would be perfect. As we arrived, we noticed several customers were having a fried fish platter that looked very good. Two of our party ordered that, and were very pleasantly surprised. It was well prepared, not greasy, a large portion, nice go-withs, and... More

We went here for lunch on our way to Lake Placid. First off our waitress ignored us . Tried to get her attention no less than 6 times... No luck. My husband said we should leave and I wished we did. The place was filthy . Sticky tables and globs of food all over the floor and seats. The bathroom... More

The food is always fresh and tastes home cooked! We have never had a bad experience at Walt's. Soups are great! Whenever we visit the Adirondack area, a stop for lunch at Walt's is always on our agenda! The wait staff are friendly and helpful. You won't be disappointed having a meal at Walt's and their prices are very reasonable... More

We have gone to Old Forge for years. I am always telling people about it. Walt's is a family favorite.

Visited during the Old Forge Antique Fair. (We had last visited two and a half years ago) We entered and were waiting at side entrance near sign that says "Wait to be seated"...and no one came. Walked over to front entrance and explained that we came in through the side entrance. Waitress was friendly, didn't mention specials, seated us, and... More
