No better place for breakfast than Walts. Humongous pancakes...plain, blueberry, or chocolate chips. Waitstaff Very Busy and Pleasant. Dave, the main cook and Owner, plies his skill at the grill and pans to make everyone a special meal. Recommended.

Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Just a question if our bill was accurate. The pastrami was fantastic.

I eat here frequently as I work in Old Forge. Usually sit at the counter and enjoy watching the cooks at the grills! Love the soups, egg/olive sandwiches, and Walts has the BEST FISH FRY IN OLD FORGE-- Delicious haddock sandwiches and dinners on Fridays.

Popular joint for breakfast. Team works to get people in and out. Very friendly! A bit slow in the kitchen, but understandable with how busy they are.

When I think of a diner, several things come to mind - quick service, extensive menu, all day breakfast. Walt's "Diner" has none of these. We arrived after the lunch rush (about 2:00pm) so I didn't expect to wait too long. It took a while...More

There's no wonder why there is often a line out the door. Walts has all your breakfast favorites, including pancakes as big as a plate! Egg whites are sometimes unavailable for omelettes and coffee could be better, otherwise I would have given 5 stars!

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
