Walter's is changing and the remodeled patio with fire pits, comfy chairs and a bar is harder and harder to access. The time is now limited to Thursdays and weekends. However, we were there on a Sunday evening and not allowed to go inside, but were restricted to the seating along the roadside. Maybe they had a hectic brunch crowd... More

If you have ever spent time in Claremont you have probably heard of Walter's. Their prices are a little high but they do have good food. Their bakery is well worth the price I always get the fruit tart. It is a great place for large groups they have plenty of private dining rooms.

Since all the other restaurants were that we visited were closed on Monday, we were very happy that Walters was open, during our visit to Claremont. We were seated outdoors in a beautiful patio. The service was great! Our open-face turkey sandwiches were good, the portion very generous. All-in-all, a very good eating place.

What a surprising spot! This is a place that, apparently, has been around a LONG time. The food was delicious. The service was professional and the staff could not have been more accommodating. There is a lot of space, though outdoor tables are crowded on weekend mornings. Huge families can gather inside (nice in the AC) and there is a... More

We went to dinner this week at Walters with a party of 4, one is a vegan --He found things to his liking . The food was good and the service was exceptional. They offer specials as well as their regular menu. We have never had a bad meal at Walters.

I used to love this place. Several years back, the restaurant went through some much needed renovation and all was still good (to be honest though, the service has never been great, just fine), but the food was awesome. The food is still good, but has had some significant price increases to the point that it just doesn't make sense.... More

I have never gotten sick here, but I have heard of several people who have. I usually enjoy myself--eat vegetarian here, and you'll be just fine.

Brunch at the bar is an interesting experience.Paintings on walls and ceilings are attractive.Service is attentive .Food is abundant and good.I had two eggs with excellent hash browns accompanied with whole wheat nan (afghan bread). Gravelax salmon with a kind of dutch sauce is also superb.We were a group of 14 celebrating the birthday of my grandson.
