“Best steakhouse in Delaware”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Walter's is by far, the best place for steaks in Delaware. I have worked in other steak restaurants in Delaware and none of them compare to Walter's. The prices are about the same as some of the other high end steak places, but a salad and a side are included. Not a la carte like most of the other places. The steaks are done to perfection each time we are here. We stumbled upon Walter's years ago and are so happy that we did. We went again last night and the food was fabulous. For the first time though, our service was terrible. Our waitress seemed like she was lost in time and space. We sat for 10 minutes before she even came out to our table, then she took our drink orders. She came back 20 minutes later with drinks, never told us about any of the specials and didn't bring bread out until our steaks came out. Because of all of our great experiences in the past, we were a little surprised by the poor service last night. However, sometimes things like that happen and I just hope it isn't a sign of things to come.

“Wonderful cozy place to eat”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

The food was delicious. The staff was welcoming and attentive. We were walk-ins on Valentine's Day weekend and barely had to wait. The only down comment would be the parking which is on the street and hard to find a spot. I guess that is expected in a city though.

“Won't go back”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

We visited Walters with a group of eight. It had been years since I'd been. They always had a good reputation for steak but we were all disappointed. Not one steak came out as ordered and most were tough and burnt on the outsides. Sides and deserts were just ok. We went on a Friday night and most tables were empty so I think that's a pretty good indication that this restaurant is losing it's reputation. It is definitely not worth the price. If you want a good steak make a trip to one of the steakhouses in Philly. You'll pay the same amount but your meal will be a much higher caliber. Don't waste your time or money here!

“Best place to print rib”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

Love the service and atmosphere .prime rib is always awesome. The lamb is always good but the sauce is not
A mint sauce as it once was so that was a disappointment. My husband was disappointed somewhat. Martinis were excellent and the bartender was tolerant of my husbands experimenting with different drinks. all on all a great evening out. Get the bananas foster. You won't regret it.

“WOW”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

My first time here. We went with another couple to celebrate a birthday. The waiter was outstanding. He had been there for many years and knew the wine and food. His recommendations where spot on. I was also surprised that the place was almost empty on Friday night at 8:30. I hope that was an anomaly and not a sign of bad times. We will definitely be back.
