I’ve eaten there dozens of times over the years and have never had a bad meal. It’s so nice to be able to rely on Wally’s for a great meal and over all a great experience.

Wally’s used to be better..... despite telling waitress not to put dressing on the salad, but on the side, it still came out drenched in dressing..... caprese salad had old mushy tomatoes that tasted terrible..... the dishes my husband ordered we also not very good either...... I used to love this place..... but won’t be going back again..... such a shame.

It was way too hot for the patio, so the inside of the restaurant was crowded, and as it’s a small space, was quite loud. Can’t be helped. I almost always get their halibut special. I told my friends how good it is. Two of us ordered it, and unfortunately, it was over cooked, hard and dry- for both of us. My husband had the ribs. He said they were great. My other friend had fish and chips, which she enjoyed. So just not a good night for the halibut, but nice night overall. Service was great, as always. .

Service was excellent. The food was OK. The fish and chips was a lot of breading. The meatloaf also just ok. The trout was very good and I had the berry salad with chicken and it was good just too much dressing. IT WAS FREEZING in the restaurant and very loud.

Experience was awesome! We haven't been here in years...it just fell off our radar! We were greeted as soon as we walked in and our server, Ashlyn was amazing! My ice tea was always filled, the food and service were right on target!
Why did we wait so long to come back? This place is super!!!

We are regulars at Wally's and are usually happy with the food. Yet, the menu could use some updating . I'm getting a little bored with it

My family a party of 5 made reservations for 6:30 PM, arrived at the front door and noticed a jam of people waiting to be seated becuase there was NO hostes. Waiters walking by the door would stop and ask if anyone needed seating. 10 minutes we finally had a waiter who noted our reservation and pointed to our table in the BAR area, not dining area.

After show our table it took 10 minutes for a waiter to take our drink order, then another 15 minutes to come back to take our meal order.

The meals were nothing like Google reviews noted with 4 and 5 stars. 2 of us had the prime rib, came cold, dried and with sort of oregano just spread all over the meat, horrible! Mashed potatoes were too cold to eat. I also ordered the sauteed spinach but when brought to the table it looked like a spinach salad, NOT sauteed.

My wife noted her liver was very good but cold potatoes.

It was a little disturbing paying $167 for a party of 5 and forced to eat supper in a bar with all TV's showing a show on vehicle crashes and stunts.

5:00 dinner reservations. If the special is steak with bernaise sauce...there should be bernaise sauce and, the waiter mistakenly brought the steak dinner from the menu instead of the dinner special steak frites with bernaise. Had eaten half the steak before the waiter returned with bernaise because the kitchen was out of sauce????? Sadly no bubbly rose or Proseco offered...the sparkling brut was ...only ok.
Not our first visit, and not our last...but something seemed amiss...
