We just managed to squeeze in at the bar of this place one Sunday morning whilst staying in Fort Greene. Service was a little slow to start but soon quickened up and we enjoyed some great food surrounded by great decor and refillable coffee!

Just had dinner at Walter's and thoroughly enjoyed myself. 1. Decor: was really nice, loved the big mirror behind the bar. 2. Drinks: I tried Walter's Punch (rum punch). In the time between ordering and my drink's arrival I got very nervous I might have just ordered a Malibu Bay Breeze, luckily I didn't. Walter's Punch was balanced and delicious... More

I met a friend from LA who is now bicoastal who suggested Walters for a quick bite. It really was an attractive place with a nice crowd. I just had a hamburger, some fries, and a soda. All delicious and really hit the spot. I finished it off with a cup of their very good coffee. All in all my... More

I went to Walter's twice during a recent weekend getaway and thoroughly enjoyed each time. First I went for appetizers and a cocktail with a friend. The food came out quickly and was absolutely delicious. The artichoke dip is a must! We had the bitter margarita for our cocktail, which was also outstanding. The next day I went to brunch... More

Landed in JFK and came straight here! Burger and beers! Amazing and just what we needed after a long flight! The menu did other stuff which all looked great but I'd say try the burger!!

We got there about 6 pm on a Friday night and were quickly seated. However, the waitress was a bit slow to take our drink order which we saw sitting on the bar waiting for her to pick up. After she served out drinks (by the way, DON'T order the iced tea! Really nasty taste!) she then chatted away with... More

Always thought it was the best place for oysters, except this last time. Some of the oysters (from Maine I believe) tasted really bad and fishy. The rest was ok but I was disappointed.

This restaurant was recommended by a local. She said it was a walk but it was worth it. And we agree the salad with tuna grilled and fish tacos later we are content. The waffles and chicken looked tempting.

I was taken here by a friend and it was super busy on our arrival but the staff were very accommodating, taking our names and asking to enjoy a drink at the bar whilst we waited for a table. We didn't have to wait long and we were shown to our table. The service was very attentive and nothing was... More
