I am old fan of Walt's. Way before new ownership.They are trying to do good. Ribs are great. Service is ok, seemingly because of younger wait staff. They need to improve on this. When we arrived, we announced our reservation time and our name. Three...More

Venue looks like it’s had no updates in decades, and that would be fine if the food was impressive. The food is not. BBQ ribs from their own smokehouse are dry and tough; good luck to your teeth trying to get it off the bone....More

Good food and an even better setting just south of Cincinnati. One of their strengths is clearly the staff, as they cater to your every need. Had the BBQ ribs and Chicken, and they did not disappoint. Pecan Pie was also very good. Perfect place...More

I was with a group last night and I'd say the overall satisfaction with the food was probably 80%. I ordered a steak for the third and final time last night, it's never cooked properly. I requested medium and it was easily well done. The...More

This is the first time I have eaten here since it reopened. This was a business meal so a decent sized group. The waitress took good care of us. We started off with a seafood tower for appetizers. This included oysters on the half shell,...More
