Great dinner with great portions and a very friendly staff! Lots of classics, and tons of locals so you know it’s good food and a good value. Love the pancakes here! You will love it, trust me👍

Whenever I am in the Old Forge area Walt's is where I eat....usually multiple meals (last visit 3x). I have never been let down. Serving sizes are good (especially the pancakes, which I've never had but I saw them being plated and they are huge!)...More

This restaurant was fun...it was busy, but service was really good. The cooks are right up front and are cooking their little hearts out while people are watching, The food that they put out in such a timely fashion was pretty amazing!!

We had our dog with us during our stay in Old Forge, so sit down meals weren’t an option in October. We were thrilled Walt’s Diner offered takeout. We called ahead and placed our order. My husband went in to grab it and said it...More

This place has a pretty good breakfast. We ordered omelettes. They were of a decent size. Their coffee was also good.

I get to Walt's in the spring and fall during my semi-annual trips. When I walked in a few days ago, the waitress greeted me by asking "Are you here for the turkey or the steak sandwich today?". Six months between visits, and she remembers...More

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