Friendly, accommodating staff. Good variety on the menu and breakfast pancakes are served with the real deal Adirondack maple syrup. You get a sense of the community and local culture. Really enjoyed this place.

We had occasion to visit Walt's on two separate occasions a few days apart, both times for lunch. Diners should serve good food in a short time at good prices. Walt's does exactly that, and they do it especially well. On our first visit we...More

Nice little place for breakfast. I'm sure it is much busier during the season, but with snow falling in October, the locals far outnumbered the tourists. Always a good sign!

This diner is in downtown Old Forge so it's easy to walk to. If you're going for lunch though, try to go about 11:30 or wait until about 1:00. Food was ok, nothing special. The menu and prices are on par with other diners. The...More

Obviously not a fancy restaurant. The food was very good. Reasonable too. It's a busy place but the service was great!

Stopped in for lunch around 12:45 on Columbus Day and waited around 20 minutes to be seated. Not bad given the holiday. We ordered and waited nearly 30 minutes for one of our five orders to be brought out. Then after about five more minutes...More

Walt's was disappointing. We walked in a stood next to the "wait to be seated" sign and no one even acknowledged us for a while. We ended up seating ourselves at the bar area and it took about 10 minutes to even get a cup...More

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

Well, I would be surprised, but...Maybe they do. I would advise calling them and asking! You can probably find gluten free dinners at Five Corners, just a few minutes walk away. There is also a fancy breakfast & lunch... More
