Our new favorite Wednesday night place. Half price on all wines by the bottle and
BOGO 1/2 off on entrees on Wednesday nights. Outdoor dining is limited and can not be guaranteed, but the outdoor space is very lovely if you can get it. The California stack is fabulous - it's an appetizer, but I get it as my meal.

Food was a little disappointing. The hamburger and steak were not even medium rare. They were almost black and blue. We had the Hawaiian ribeye and the side purée was too creamy. It was very heavy. The spinach dip just missed the mark. I feel they are almost on their way to be a great restaurant but just miss the mark.

It's a quiet restaurant with a nice ambiance. My salad was very tasty. My husband's burger was undercooked. When he pointed it out to the waiter, he quickly took it back to the kitchen. We could see the kitchen from our table. They took the burger off the plate and put it back on the grill. After cooking it for a while, returned it to the plate. It was fine for us but thought that it was unsanitary for other customers to have a burger that had been bitten into returned to the grill.

My family of four had a great Sunday brunch. My wife and daughter both had burgers, which they described as one of the best burgers they have tasted. My son had the chicken sandwich, which he devour in ten minutes. I had the lobster Benedict, which was delicious. Very impressed with the lobster portion. I had a Manhattan, which was very well prepared. We will come back soon.

Had been there twice before and food was very good. Tonight was a major disappointment. All you can eat mussels were not hot and they were dry. My lobster crap ravioli tasted like it was heated up in a microwave. The Neptune roles bread was stale. Server was very nice.

This was our first time here and had a great experience! The menu has so many appetizing options and the pricing is great for what you got. It has a really nice vibe for a night out with friends or a dinner away from your kids. We ordered a crab cake which was excellent because it wasn’t stuffed with filler, it was all crab! My fiancé ordered a steak- Pittsburg rare and it was cooked perfectly and a great size portion. Our server was so friendly and on top of everything. We would highly recommend!

We were celebrating a belated New Year’s with friends. I love Walts, for its crisp white decor, excellent menu and consistent service. We did the all you can drink mimosas which were a great deal for $15. Our breakfast food was great and overall we had a lovely afternoon! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Went for New Years as the bar and basil martini are awesome. There were very few people in there. The baked shrimp was frozen, as the crab went rolling down the plate in a ball. The filet mignon looked like overcooked deli meat. The waitress was a doll and brought manager who adjusted the bill. Such a shame for a gorgeous place to have a horrible chef. Will never return for food, only basil martini!

Fun atmosphere. The service for delivering our food to the table was excellent but our waitress kept missing items that we ordered. I’m not sure if she couldn’t hear us or she was spacey. Nonetheless, all was remedied. The food is good, nothing amazing. But we keep going back.

Not sure if it was just an off night, but dinner at Walt's was not very good. Caesar Salad came with little dressing and the dressing was not that good. The server was attentive but we had to ask for many things, salt and pepper, ketchup etc. The manager stopped at our table, and when he heard the concerns he offered us free appetizers on our next visit and took the salad off our bill. This was much appreciated.

My husband was hungry and ordered soup, salad and main course. The lobster bisque came right away. However the large salad and entree were brought out together. He had to send the main course back for when he finished his salad. I ordered the pork chop with balsamic and peaches. It was delicious. We plan to come back again.

First time here. Food was good. Drinks were good. Service was eh. I know service is bad all over. Everyone is short handed. My appetizer came out and I was finished before my husbands salad came out… server said “it should have been out already”. Then the main dishes came out before he finished his salad.
We’ll give it another shot.

Food and service very good. A lot of noisy children in the restaurant when we were dining. I was kind of surprised to encounter that on a Friday night. Restaurant is very pretty and not an atmosphere that should promote families with young children.

New server not sure of menu items as far as dietary or ingredients so cannot fault him . Asked server for an ingredient placed on the side and wasn’t written down or kitchen person didn’t follow - so food sent back to be remade . While awaiting new food , the other people at our table eating their entrees . Bar menu was limited and one person ordered a sweeter wine which he said didn’t taste that good .
Prices were a little high ( Boca Raton ) for portion served . Some foods ordered tasted better than others.
Simple decor white clean looking restaurant. Comfortable booths inside, but outside patio chairs not comfortable as no seat cushion .
