We loved everything about Wallys. Wish it were a bit closer to our place however if that were the case we’d likely be there everyday. Super nice experience. Customer service the best. Plus, where else can you get two excellent seafood options at a casual restaurant? We each had seafood and loved it. We will be back

Wally's has been a positive experience for us every time we eat there. And when dining as a group of 7 or 8 people, the ROUND table is perfect. It allows for conversation to flow throughout the group. The patio is always comfortable, cooler weather and when it's hot.

Always a wonderful experience, as every detail is equal to or beyond our expectations. Food, drink, and customer service is always first rate, and the atmosphere is so comfortable and relaxed that we never feel rushed. Thanks to a great team, with a shout out to Matt for his always outstanding service.

We've been to Wally's many times. We went this time during the holidays with our family, including 3 small children. I made the usual Open Table reservation. When we arrived, we were seated at an OUTDOOR table. The weather was in the 40s and it was windy. There were flapping plastic drapes separating the small children from the weather - the wait staff tried to warm us with 2 outdoor heaters but the children (and I) were uncomfortable for the entire meal. We weren't told we'd be seated outside when I made the reservation. I've never dined outside before in more than 50 experiences at Wally's. I guess I'll have to call before I go next time - but that defeats the whole purpose of Open Table, I think.

This is a family favorite. Big groups need to be on the patio as the inside doesn't hold large groups (6 or more) and is very noisy. Good variety of food offerings at a resonable price.

Had not been to Wallys in a while and was pleasantly surprised with how much our group of four enjoyed the evening. Ambiance was great and drinks reasonably priced. Entrees ordered were the prime rib, California Cobb Salad, Pear and Berry Salad and the French Dip. Dessert was the coconut cream custard.

1. Prime rib had a good flavor, but the cut was a little thin.
2. The California Cobb was smaller than expected and long on lettuce, but short on corn and blue cheese crumbles.
3. French dip was good.
4. Pear and Berry salad also good.

Come for the drinks and deserts. Stick to the sandwiches and pass on the salads.

When we made reservations, it asked if it was a special occasion. We replied "wedding anniversary." When we arrived, the hostess gave congratulations. The waiter never said anything and there was no small complementary dessert.

I love Wally's! Happy Hour has great pricing, and you can make a reservation. Great happy hour pricing on drinks and food. I love the fried chicken wings, which I get dry (not cooked in the sauce) with the sauce on the side. Tasty drinks too. The service this last time was especially outstanding - the server checked in with us frequently but not so often as to be obtrusive. I also like Wally's for lunch but as I live and work in Phoenix, I'm there more often for Happy Hour.

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!!!
