Though dressed in stiff pressed collars and bow-ties, the waiters and bartenders here are friendly and helpful. The restaurant also functions as a bar if you'd like to sip on a cocktail and order off the impressive raw bar. All vintage cocktails, like a Vesper or a Dark and Stormy, are $11.
On the dinner menu you can go all out with Walter Food's delectable specials, which fall somewhere in the range of $24 for an entree, or stick to their solidly delicious hamburger, made with short rib beef, for $13. The burger is also on the Brunch menu, served on Saturdays and Sundays, along with Fried Chicken and Waffles ($15) and a Bloody Mary ($9) or your choice of cocktail. Though the prices aren't "cheap," per se, you are definitely getting good bang for your buck - the food is delicious and the service is excellent. You'll want to hang out here all night.
