“Great Variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

I have been to the Walter Cafe many times over the past few years. The menu is varied, and it's a mystery as to how they can do so many varieties of cusine so well. The sushi is amazing. Steak is great. I can seldom pass up the pasta for dinner because it's awesome (with the exception of the lobster ravioli, which is a NO GO). Their bento box lunches are delicious, and the garlic rice that comes with them is great. Well worth the stop!

“Food good, but a bit pricy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Staying at the motel right behind here led us to walk to Walter Cafe for dinner. Well, it is really a Chinese restaurant/sushi bar. Several pages of Japanese dishes and another couple of Meat and Seafood items. My wife had Pork Butts; it was a generous portion and also included a sausage. I had Lasagna but wasn't that impressed with it. Seemed to be thick meat sauce with a couple of lasagna noodles in it. Most of the meat dishes were in the $20 and up range. Seafood from mid teens up. One fair size room other than the bar/sushi bar and quite noisy. Will look farther around town next time. Don't know who Walter was, but it is now a Chinese restaurant.

“Love the bento boxes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

Their food is hit & miss, idk why. The burgers are usually good, and the fish & chips. Mmm
Best thing is their bento box lunch specials. My favorite is the tempura one. You get yummy tempura veg and shrimp, ginger salad, garlic rice, and 4 California rolls. So good...
