We popped into Wally’s for some lunch. It was great! We started with the pretzels and Asiago cheese sauce. It was delicious We had the Cobb Salad and the Crispy Chicken Sandwich. Both were excellent. We dined outside because we doesn’t love Scottsdale weather in November. The patio is very nice. The service was great.

Love the food and staff. We've been introducing friends to Wally's and everyone has enjoyed. Really enjoy your patio. Tables are spaced far enough that conversations don't drift to other tables. Great job guys.

We were looking forward to trying Wally's for the first time last night. Reviews were good & the online menu had some interesting dishes however all the items we saw posted online were not on the actual dinner menu (Onion & Guinness soup, for example)
The service was quick & friendly but unfortunately EVERYTHING was quick. We'd hoped for a nice, relaxing date night dinner but we were seated at 7:30 - only ordered cocktails at first and got the check by 8! My prime rib was tough. Never had tough prime rib before! Sent it back, hoping for a more tender cut but the 2nd piece was just as tough. They took it off the bill.
We're glad we tried Wally's but there's nothing that makes us want to go back.

I made reservations to celebrate my mother's 92nd bday with 6 adults and 2 children. It was obvious that the restaurant was. understaffed, which is understandable during these times of Covid. Our waiter got one of our meals wrong, he never came back to ask if we wanted dessert and basically was MIA. We will continue to come to your restaurant, but just thought you should know what our experience was last night.

The service and speed of getting our food was great. It took longer to get our small overpriced adult beverages than our food. The food came so quickly that we were there for a total of 45 minutes. My husband had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes and enjoyed it, I had the fish and chips. The fish was definitely from frozen and quite greasy, the fries were good, the ranch dressing was very vinegary no tarter sauced for the fish, that made it quite boring. We won’t be going back. Too many good restaurants in town!

Service was very good, however, food was average. The asparagus was cold and the meatloaf/mashed potatoes were kind of dry. We felt rushed throughout our entire meal. Lack of ambiance in the patio area, uncomfortable metal chairs, plastic tablecloth. One and done.

A great place to bring visitors from out of town and have dinner on the covered patio. Food is always well prepared and good presentation.

First time to Wally’s. It is a favorite of some friends, but a little farther from us. It was well worth the drive! We ate on the patio and the atmosphere was wonderful. Inside seemed comfortable with just the right amount of noise. Nice sized patio and tables perfectly separated for ease of movement, conversations and social distancing. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We didn’t think our waitress heard our request for waters as she walked by with food for another table, but she arrived promptly with 4 waters apologizing that she had her hands full so unable to acknowledge as she passed. And even better was the food. I had the Parmesan trout special with horseradish mashed potatoes. Best meal I’ve had in a long time. My husband had the meatloaf, which is his go to meal if served at a restaurant and raved about it. We will definitely be back!

This was the first place we dined in Scottsdale and it hit the spot. Not only was everyone’s food amazing, the service was great and the prices were super reasonable. We will definitely be going back again! I would give this place ten stars if it were an option!

Matt, our server, was attentive. He realized one cocktail was missing & brought it soon. Water was replenished often. Entrees of chicken piccata, ribs & meatloaf were tasty & arrived in a timely manner.
The brownie disappointed. It was not the usual dense, generous portion.

The food was great but I. have a question. Why, with a reservation, did they try to seat a confirmed party of 2 at a table for 8 -- makes no sense, especially because I had indicated it was for a birthday.
