Reviews for The Walnut

Stopped in for lunch today with my better half. I never post on Yelp, but I was impressed with my experience. The food was great, the service above par, at a reasonable price. If you are a burger guy, you will enjoy the menu, I personally had the mushroom Swiss burger, and it is the best burger I've had in awhile. Worth checking out, we will be back for sure, they had a chicken sandwich on the menu we both want to try.

I'm going to be honest and the reason I'm giving the Walnut a 3.5 star would have to be service and staff. Let's get to the food. The Wings were okay. The Buffalo flavor barely had any sauce. The amount you get for 11.00 is a bit pricey. I was told to get the Parmesan Garlic Fries. Not really much Garlic and fairly disappointed. Hopefully The Walnut will be better next time but I'm leaving on a Empty Stomach for the amount I paid today. No Celery and No Carrots for the Wings???
Got our order for pick up. Overall it is an okay place. We got the Spicy Corn Fritters that were flavorful almost reminded me of a curry flavor. It's not too spicy by does have a kick to it. The Mediterranean Chicken Wrap was decent. It was lacking in portion of filing to pita, as you can tell in the picture but the flavor was there, light and fresh tasting. The pasole was probably my favorite as it had a good meaty flavor packed with hominy and tender shredded meat! The full review
