At best... average. Soup was OK, at best. Prawn appetizer was overcooked... Caesar dressing was not good. New Rule: Don't eat at a restaurant that shares a parking lot with an inexpensive hotel!

This restaurant is one of the best, Japanese and American food, sushi for people who like it. We like the American foods and everything is prepared very fresh.

I ate here for lunch. The food was good. The staff was nice. I had the club sandwich. My friends had the bacon cheese burger. They said it was very good. The fries were very tasty. I would suggest this place to everyone.

The menu is very big to lure the Japanese Food fans and the American eaters. Quite a large selection so one is bound to find something they... More

We happened to stumble across this restaurant driving around in Ukiah a couple of nights ago. It was my husband's birthday, and we had originally decided on a sushi place that was closed. Well, it just so happens that Walter Cafe has sushi and more. What an eclectic menu! Very surprising! There's steak, seafood, pasta, duck, various salads, appetizers, and... More

It doesn't look glamorous, but Walter Cafe was a perfect late lunch spot for our group of eight, including five kids. The sushi quality was very good too!

Traveling through on business, was recommended by the motel I stayed at. Huge portions reasonable price, would recommend for lunch or dinner. They have a full bar.
