Every year we go to Old Forge for our annual labor day trip. We always go to Walts for breakfast. The food is consistently great. Just for fun, we timed how long it would take from the time we walked in until we walked out....More

Nice place for lunch. Attentive staff. Good food, if a bit predictable. Nice energy and feel inside. Clearly a classic in Old Forge. Try the pulled pork!

Excellent service with very generous portions. Prices were good for a resort town as well. We go here every year and are never disappointed.

My family had breakfast at Walt's twice because is was so good. The pancakes are outstanding, eggs, bacon, french toast and coffee all were delicious. The service was friendly and great and the prices were easy - I highly recommend eating at Walt's.

I am not the owner, call Walt's or find another place to eat. It is NOT expensive for the portions you get.

Well, I would be surprised, but...Maybe they do. I would advise calling them and asking! You can probably find gluten free dinners at Five Corners, just a few minutes walk away. There is also a fancy breakfast & lunch... More
