Landed in JFK and came straight here! Burger and beers! Amazing and just what we needed after a long flight! The menu did other stuff which all looked great but I'd say try the burger!!

We got there about 6 pm on a Friday night and were quickly seated. However, the waitress was a bit slow to take our drink order which we saw sitting on the bar waiting for her to pick up. After she served out drinks (by the way, DON'T order the iced tea! Really nasty taste!) she then chatted away with... More

Always thought it was the best place for oysters, except this last time. Some of the oysters (from Maine I believe) tasted really bad and fishy. The rest was ok but I was disappointed.

This restaurant was recommended by a local. She said it was a walk but it was worth it. And we agree the salad with tuna grilled and fish tacos later we are content. The waffles and chicken looked tempting.

I was taken here by a friend and it was super busy on our arrival but the staff were very accommodating, taking our names and asking to enjoy a drink at the bar whilst we waited for a table. We didn't have to wait long and we were shown to our table. The service was very attentive and nothing was... More

We chose Walter's on a recommendation from a friend and he was right! Great food and cocktails with very attentive staff! The Steamed Duck Buns appetizer was so good that we ordered another!! Our party had the fried chicken, Fisherman's stew and French Dip! Everyone enjoyed their meals and the portions were good sized. We completed the meal with the... More

Food and staff should share the same top billing here. Food is better than what I hoped for with a menu not so big that it was hard to make a decision. Started with the watermelon feta salad - so fresh and light. Fried shrimp and grilled octopus appetizers were amazing. The octopus was the best EVER eaten. The seafood... More

We loved the brunch at this spot. We tried the French Toast and the Smoked Salmon Benedict and they were amazing. The service was great and the interior has lots of natural light so it doesn't feel cramped. It looks like they have a great happy hour too.

We arrived in Brooklyn on a Thursday afternoon. My husband was searching for nearby restaurants and Walter's came up. On arrival it was a bit fancier then expected. The staff was really nice. There was a wait and luckily a reservation no showed so we got their table. My husband got the fried chicken which he really enjoyed, both kids... More
