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...More

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...More

Food was good (especially the chili). However, one of us ordered chili and salad, the other a sandwich: The server brought the chili first and there was a wait of about 15 minutes before she brought the salad. Then another 10 minutes before the sandwich...More

Let's face it, It's Walts why would you go anywhere else ? If you haven't figured that out yet, you must be new to Old Forge "Best Breakfast in Town"

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Why are you charging a 50 cent surcharge per egg? The price of eggs have went up about 6 cent per egg. I am guessing your cost went up about 20 dollars per case. Shame on you for trying to up charge so much

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
