My husband and I recently had lunch at 15 Walnut. We ordered the haddock - one fried and the other baked with lemon beurre blanc sauce. We split the orders so we could sample each of the preparations. They were both very tasty. The sweet potato fries were very good. The portions were reasonable for lunch. We were able to... More

We dined here with our family to celebrate a birthday. The menu had something for everyone including 2 children ages 7 and 10, a vegetarian, and a picky teenager. The oysters were wonderful, the burgers yummy, and the kids enjoyed their pizza.

Went for a late lunch and enjoyed our meal. Husband had a salad with grilled salmon. He enjoyed his meal but he thought the salmon portion was rather small. I had their haddock burrito which was delicious, served with a side salad. Nice atmosphere, friendly bar and attentive service. We will return.

We enjoy 15 Walnut for its food and service, but the prices tend to be high for our budget. It is also a longer drive for us, but the food quality still draws us back. Despite the prices, 15 Walnut is still busy for both the food and service.

Hi rspill, Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm happy to hear that you enjoy everything from the service to the quality of the food. Unfortunately the high quality products that we use do come at a cost and that is reflected in our pricing. We try to keep a balanced menu that offers something for everyone and... More

We went here because we had a free sushi. It was a very good lunch. The sushi was fresh and delicious. The brisket sandwich , which is new, was very tasty. The brisket came with a sweet onion relish on it. The hamburger was very good and juicy, also with a delicious sauce on it. All sandwiches come with fr... More

Small portions poor value - 5 scallops on a $30 entree Seems that most everybody had a Groupon or Yelp Deal. Do not go without a Deal.

Mixed review here. We have been here twice this month. Service was excellent each time. The burger was very good. The nachos were also very good with thick, crispy chips that did not get soggy. The California roll was average and the Cesar salad dressing had too much lemon for our taste. We will go back but not our first... More
