A bustling diner filled with locals and out of towners, you immediately feel right at home. Staff is bubbly and prompt although you don’t feel rushed. You can sit at the counter or a table and get filled right up with some good home cookin’.

The locals consider this quaint diner the best in the area, and they are absolutely correct! Great food, reasonably priced and excellent service. I'm going back the next time I'm in Old Forge!

The food is fresh and well-cooked. The only negative here is that the service can be very slow. The staff seems to forget about people. I like coming here because I love diners, there is a good atmosphere (clean), and the food is always good.

Love their food very yummy. We had fish and a salad. I would say the salad didn’t have enough dressing on it but it was still very good.

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

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