Decent wine list, pleasant, open space. My lobster risotto was great. It had an interesting splash of demi glace on the dish which gave the whole dish a unique flavor. My husband's Asian-inspired tuna serve over green tea soba noodles was really, really tasty. We'd...More

Walter's is one of my favorite restaurants. It absolutely ranks up with all the James Beard nominated restaurants in Maine. The food has always been exceptional and the service is good as well. My favorite dish ever was a salmon three ways I had there.

From the Kentucky bourbon specialty cocktail, to the brussel sprouts salad, to the lobster risotto to the brownie with salted honey ice cream - this was a wonderful meal complemented with excellent service and pacing. I loved every bite!

Comfortable attractive venue with friendly efficient service and outstanding high quality comfort food with creative effective international accents without pretense or bizarre flavor combinations. A delightful experience. This is an under-rated local treasure with delicious enjoyable food.

We just walked by the restaurant by chance and ended up with a great meal. The Artichoke soup was superb, and the Fritters that cane with my Steak were delicious. Helpful staff, good wine, and good Port with dessert. Solid Four Stars!
