Walker's Grille Ratings and Reviews
We went on Valentine's Day and I really feel like they weren't prepared for the turnout. Maybe they had workers call out and they were short staffed, either way we waited a really long time. The hostess, Analise, was amazing! I could tell she was stressed but she was very professional and friendly. My food was burnt and they remade it for me with no problem, but when I got it back it was med well instead of well. Overall I enjoyed the place and I will go back to see if they can get 1 or 2 more stars😉
I have wanted this restaurant to succeed so I have given it several tries - unfortunately it is headed in the opposite direction. This last visit will be my last visit. The staff is nice enough but seems overwhelmed, the food is mediocre at best, and the dining room is loud. Not worth the prices they charge. Sorry....
Nicole was the person serving me (she was also the bartender) and she was on top of her game. The food was good (except the bread. They were trying a new recipe and it was not really good), but Nicole was the star here. Great place, looks really cool with outside seating options.
Walker Grille has fallen on hard times. We brought another couple with us for Restaurant Week and would up embarrassed for suggesting it. Despite only 3 other couples in the restaurant on a Sunday night, the service was terrible. We sat a long time before finally asking the host who seated us if he was our waiter. Then we had to ask for bread, ask for drink refills, etc. With only 3 entrees on the Restaurant Week menu, they were out of one. Then they got the order wrong and one of the entrees was delayed 15 minutes.
Overall a solid place to dine. It's not for everyday dining, but good for dates and business meals. They could benefit from a more prominant cocktail menu (if one even exists). I only saw the wine list. The food was good. The waiter was a bit awkward at first, but warmed up as the meal progressed. Will definitely go back.
The food was just okay. The steak on my beet salad was bland. Another person at our table got the Steak Frittes and said his was bland too. The person at our table that got the chicken said the skin was seasoned well but it did not get into the meat. The bread in the bread basket was was either microwaved or stale because it was hard. We could have had a better meal for less elsewhere.
Service was so so.
Having eaten here three times prior to include Valentine's Day, I already knew it would not disappointment; this was, however, my friend's first time and she very much enjoyed herself. From the wine to the food, everything was great along with fantastic service who provided just the right amount of attention as my friend and I caught up since last time. A great place to enjoy an evening with friends, family, and loved ones.
Walkers is a good restaurant working on becoming better. I like the wine pairing dinner nights.
Where Walkers can improve is adding more refresh fruits, the orange juice should be squeezed not from a box. The menu should revamped it’s been the same a long while now. The chief should have specialties dishes daily. This is a good restaurant but can be so much more.
The food was okay, did not have a lot of flavor. the calamari breading fell off in the bowl. The cobb salad had grissel pieces of the chicken in it, and the dressing did not really have any flavor (honey mustard).
It seems to me the food has gone down hill since it initially opened. It's a great location and has good ambience for the working and social crowd, but the food needs to improve for the prices charged.
This spot is a hidden gem. Once inside, or even on the patio, you will forget you are in a business park. Weekend brunch is great, it's a casual environment, very laid back. My poached eggs came out really overcooked once and they eagerly offered to correct it. Dinner during the week is usually beautifully quiet - and that's the best part.
We gather with another couple monthly and alternate who chooses the restaurant. It was our turn and Walkers Grill was the restaurant of choice. The food was fabulous...some of the best calamari ever...cooked to perfection! Having perfectly-sized entree portions was refreshing and naturally they are beautifully garnished. My husband and I had the scallops and they were melt in your mouth delicious! Our friends were equally impressed especially with the roasted Brussel sprouts with cranberries...an unexpected flavorful surprise. When the weather is friendlier, the outdoor seating is a must for happy hour and dining... making Walkers quite the neighborhood gem!
One of the worst meals I have ever had. One would think "fish & chips" to be pretty ordinary (i.e., safe), but the fish wasn't done, and the batter was soggy. It wasn't any better after I sent it back, and no offer was made to correct or amend the bill. Nor was I asked why I didn't finish my meal. The accompanying fries were limp and tasteless. They were out of two items on the menu. I hear that this restaurant might be closing - I think they should do us all a favor and just DO IT!
My husband and I have been to Walker's Grille 2-3 times over the years (in their early years), but it's been at least 2 years since we've dined at the restaurant. I love the new booths and the ambiance is quite pleasant and not that crowded. Everyone who worked there was super nice. However, we were extremely disappointed with the food. The quality was not as good and fresh as we've had previously. The oysters were dry and unseasoned and the slaw they came in was too creamy. I did not like the olive oil mashed potatoes...it gave it an unfresh taste. Please use butter. And the steak (my husband's and son's) was underwhelming and under seasoned. The wines we drank were also on the cheap tasting side. My stuffed chicken was only okay, pretty dry. I think I like the frozen chicken cordon blue from the grocery store better. We also had dessert...The apple fritters. Again, okay...too sweet for my taste. We're wondering if there's a different chef, because Walker's Grille used to be a hidden gem in Springfield/Alexandria. Unfortunately, we will not be back.
Came here on a Sunday morning for brunch as the restaurant opened. Service was great, server was new and did a good job. Restaurant was nice. Food was okay, not amazing but enjoyable. I thought the pancakes were a bit overpriced at $13, as there was just a stack of pancakes and only a couple pieces of fruit. Outside area looks nice. Overall 4/5 stars.
We were presented a menu that was not available. Several items from previous experiences were missing and not replaced with the same base ingredients (octopus, crab cake)
Some of the price has significantly changed.
They do a good job on appetizers we can;'t say the same for the entrees or sides.
We had a lovely dinner on a Sunday evening. The half price bottle of wine was a nice plus, but the food was superb. The service was first rate and lots of personal attention. The outside patio dining was exactly what we wanted. The only detractor is that the patio adjoins a parking lot, but it was well done and cozy. A great place to hang out.
Concept is better than the execution. Service was particularly disorganized and ineffective. Several standard items on the menu were not available and the servers didn't seem to know about it. Food preparation was uneven, somethings being quite good, others not so much. Rockfish was excellent, but risotto cake was very dry and not a good combination of tastes. Trout wasn't evenly cooked. Enjoyed having a flatbread as an appetizer for the table. Been here several times and always wished the food and service was better than it actually was. Service and food preparation need to take a step up.
