Wow. This is run by students. And it is consistently awesome. Their menu is posted, is limited to lunch only, and changes daily. Some days it is served at the table, other days it is a buffet. I have not had bad food. The price ($8, I think?) includes beverage and dessert. The county's movers and shakers show up here... More

Two friends and I went to Walter's today for lunch. For $10 it was fantastic. Minestrone soup, salad bar with fresh greens and all the fixings plus a Asian rice salad. Appetizer was a filled eggplant which was very good. Fresh herb rolls and slices of French bread. Two selections for entrée, a beef dish and shrimp/scallop carbonara pasta. Veggie... More

This is run by the local college so the hours are limited to lunch only. The selection is always great and the students are great. We eat here every chance we get.

The menu is varied and includes something for everyones taste. $10.00 gets you a drink, soup, salad bar, appetizers, main course and dessert. That is not a typo,... More

We loved the views at the restaurant while eating our seafood meals. It's a bit of an high-end restaurant, but it was find for our casual dress. Yes, I would recommend trying this restaurant, but be prepared for $$$ for some meal choices.

This restaurant is run by students striving to be chefs. They learn not only how to prepare food but rotate in all the jobs associated with a restaurant. We heard about Walter's two years ago; didn't get here until 1/14/13. We had lunch. The menu offered three entrees: buttermilk fried chicken, a shrimp dish, and calves liver. The salad bar... More

We have eaten here numerous times. I prefer their set up few years back. Food served here are created by the culinary students so its a hit or miss type of thing.... either you'll like it or you don't. I have to say favorably for the most part its good. Menu varies (I guess based on their lessons during that... More
