This restaurant was fantastic. Food was VERY tasty. The diversity of tastes were interesting and done to perfection. Service was also incredible. Managers came to table multiple times to confirm everything was right, and it was. I would highly recommend!

We tried this restaurant for the first time. The Grilled Pork Chop with Peaches, Goat Cheese and Arugula was exceptional. The drinks were perfect and the Bourbon Bread Pudding dessert was delicious. We will definitely be going back.

Best pork chop ever. Manager ensured everything was served timely. Nice, casual dining with broad enough menu from lite bites to sandwiches to full entrees. Good wine cellar and lovely bar.Will return.

Server took for ever to come at our table, she was friendly but she always forget our order. My blood orange margaritas was very sour and the taste was unpleasant, she was nice because she offered to replace with a regular margaritas but she also put on the check. My husband ordered a second one, it took for ever to arrive, and also tasted different from the first one, this was sour too. The food: nothing impressive, medium rare steak sandwich was medium well, truffle fries were just French fries with cheese, no truffle on. The manager stopped by but we were waiting for our server. Special occasion was nothing special there.

Our waiter was not friendly. We ordered drinks for the table, he looks like he’s writing it down but later told us he didn’t hear us. The restaurant wasn’t noisy. When he brought the dirty martini, he spilled so much on the table. But the drinks are not bad. We ordered 3 appetizers, he only took down 1. We ordered sparkling water for the table, he puts the whole bottle down, didn’t open it, not to mention pouring for us. The restaurant has many empty tables so it wasn’t that busy. The food and drink is good. Perhaps next time we will sit at the bar, hopefully will get better service. Just ashame this was an anniversary celebration for my parents 47th years. They will never come back again.

Beautifully appointed restaurant. Casual bright contemporary. Indoor and outdoor seating. Outstanding service. Staff went out of their way to divide up dishes and accommodate special needs. Obviously excellent management. Menu sounds very interesting and creative but unfortunately the food was a disappointment. Everything was overly salted. The lobster bisque was way too heavy on the Sheri. Luscious sounding burgers were a big disappointment to everyone and smaller than the usual gourmet burgers.
Polenta with shrimp and chorizo was a big disappointment also. Polenta tasted watery and was supposed to be a goat cheese polenta. It was not. The other components shrimp and chorizo were extremely salty. Their saltiness did not compensate for the tasteless polenta.
Roasted Beet arugula goat cheese salad was dominated by thick slices of beets, barely any cheese or arugula. Nice slices of orange.
Bottom line..excellent management,excellent wait staff, lovely restaurant but the Chef needs to be replaced. Sorry.

We had a very nice time! Everything was great but both our steaks were undercooked..the waitress took them back and it took awhile for our meal.. my feeling is, we should have been offered free dessert. Customer service.. I have been in this town for 40 years it’s not easy but something that easy goes a long way

We had a lovely server who allowed me a tasting of two wines. I went with a beautiful Chardonay. The Pork chop with peach and side arugala salad with goat cheese was superb! Perfectly cooked. My friend enjoyed the beet salad with citrus dressing.

what a nice evening!

New upscale Walt's American Grille and Bar restaurant on SW 18th street in Boca (used to be Ourback) is a beautifully modern establishment with wonderfully prepared food. I happen to love the pork chop with peaches and feta cheese. The appetizer of ahi tuna and the one with the sliced beets, oranges, avocado, almonds are two of my favorites. My husband enjoyed the beef goulash very much. I heard the crab cakes are delicious too. I've been there 4 or 5 times and everything was always great. The service is very accomodating. Prices and on a par with other mid - upscale places. I already have a reservation for October.

Attentive staff, with good food in a bright, clean and spacious dining area.

Steaks temp were right on and the cauliflower was delicious. Loaded baked potato came out not so loaded and the waitress happily brought us more toppings.

They also serve one of the best cheesecakes I have had in a while.

Beautiful restaurant, inside and out. Loved the bar, which is indoor/outdoor that leads to shaded patio, where we ate. Nice and cool despite hot temps and humidity. Manager, hostess, server all very pleasant and just seemed happy to be there. Art work cool, ambience great. We had the lobster Benedict and grilled Mahi. Both big portions for brunch/lunch and absolutely outstanding. First timers who were very impressed and cant wait to come back to try more food and also happy hour!

Birthday luncheon for 8 ladies. Great service. Most impressed that the chef decided that the steak on one of the salads was not to their standards and had the kitchen make a new one. The Waitress explained why the one salad was not delivered. We were very impressed that it was dealt with before being served.
