With a reservation I expected to be seated in a booth or at least out of the way but instead we got a small table in a very crowded area. We requested alternate seating but were told none was available.
Our server was nice but very slow and we had to ask her several times for things she forgot. Plus we had a coupon for free dessert, told our server that upon ordering, so ordered the bread pudding. When the check came we asked why the dessert charge. She said we should have told her before ordering and she would have advised us it didn’t apply to bread pudding, only pie. When we reminded her of our conversation earlier about the coupon she just shrugged saying oh, well, do you want the pie to go then? No thanks. Heading back to work.
The food is consistently good at Wally’s so no complaints on that point. But I probably won’t bring a client back there.

Booked here because of raving reviews- the food ( chicken and salmon) were a bit dry. We were sat in a relatively small area and the best compliment I can give is that the service was superb!

Sat outside on patio. Weather was nice and heaters were turned on at appropriate time. Other than dealing with sun (no blinds) for a half hour and lethargic wait staff, dining experience was great.

Overall the dining experience was good. The horseradish mashed potatoes were lacking flavor. We added garlic powder to our leftovers at home and they were much better. The temperature was too cool. We weren't on the patio where there are propane heaters. I like chicken piccata better at other restaurants. I'd probably recommend their sister restaurant, Grassroots, before this one.

We took a friend to lunch at Wally's She had never been there before. I made reservations for 12:30 pm. We chose to sit indoors. The service was good, the food delicious, but the noise level was beyond acceptable. I could not hear anything my friend was saying. The restaurant was full, and the noise level was staggering. Too bad. We won't go back.

We really enjoyed Wally's. We are visiting from Chicago and met someone at the Village Tavern in Scottsdale who told us that the Village Tavern and Wally's were their favorite two places. We agree, in fact we were at Wally's twice this week as the food was very good. We were there for the first time on Tuesday and then returned Sunday night. I had salmon both nights and it was very good. We also tried the desserts. My oh my, the desserts were fantastic. The coconut cream pie is the best I have ever had and my wife who doesn't even like coconut cream thought it was so good she bought a whole pie to bring to our friends house the next day. In my book, you can't go wrong at Wally's. We will come back again next time we visit Scottsdale.

5th or 6th visit, and enjoy it every time. Nice pub style interior, with good menu diversity. The huge rack of ribs is tender and delicious. One of my favorites! Also the french fries are excellent. The 5 of us, all enjoyed our meals. Finally, the happy hour wines and drinks are very reasonably priced and quite good.

Three out of 4 of us thought it was great! The forth thought it was good. Our server was very attentive and a nice young guy. Only down side to the evening was that it was SO noisy. This was the first time we had eaten in the main part of the restaurant and thought it was very noisy. We've always been on the patio before and not had that problem.
