    Love the vibes at Walter's. Fried catfish was very well-seasoned, oysters were perfect and great cocktail menu. We also were treated to a complementary slice of lemon pie. Excellent service.

    The fried chicken and waffles are amazing. Love the seasoning, the chicken is moist, the waffles are fluffy and I like the choice of sweet or savory sauces.

    I'd just like to move in here, but they won't let me. I love everything on the menu. The Fried Chicken and Artichoke Dip are my faves, but their healthier stuff is also delicious. Great cocktails too.

    Perfect dinner for 2: 2 gin brambles, artichoke dip, French Dip (fries, potatoes great) and brussel sprout side. Runners up: fried chicken and duck bun (spicy,cold like lobster roll.) 2 more brambles.

    Yummy burger. Heard the chicken and waffles are awesome but only available for brunch. Drinks: Bramble was good. Hemingway daquari is okay. Opt for the Singapore sling! Wings are sweet and very spicy!

    The pork chops are cooked perfectly and are paired with jalapeño grits that will melt the moment you taste it! The ambiance is dope...soul music on rotation the whole time...repeat!

    Chicken & waffles+Sunday brunch= bliss!! Perfectly seasoned & cooked to perfection. Pair it with a Bloody Mary or champagne. Leave room for their desserts. Worth every penny.

    Excellent raw bar, salads are huge and filling, deviled eggs with sirachi--yum, and the seafood stew --They need to make it with a seafood broth. rare burger no good. Needs improvement. Good drinks

    Newbie offshoot of Walter Foods on Grand in B'burg. Completely adorable. Live old-dudes jazz-jam sounds wafting in from the Fort Greene Farmer's Market across the street makes for a trés classy meal.

    I find it pretty funny that every other restaurant in Brooklyn and NYC does to go or carry out orders except walter's bc their kitchen staff "can't handle it with the crowds". Please step your game up

    Come for a heartu repast courtesy of Walter's raw bar, satisfying main dishes (the fried chicken with garlic mashed potatoes is a consistent winner), and market-fresh veggie sides. Read more

    Helles lager: quite good. Huevos rancheros also excellent. Good booze selection, nice if busy bartenders. Makes a good Aperol spritz. My go-to brunch.

    Best place to have brunch post-Saturday farmer's marketing at Fort Greene Park. Plus, even if you don't eat here, they have a very open bathroom policy.

    True neighborhood spot. Crowded and energetic even late on a Sunday night. Try the oysters, duck buns, beet salad and brussels with apples.

    Best fried chicken-most incredible drinks and be sure to ask for the chef special. Oh, and the key lime pie...don't forget it.

    Food was so good. The salad was delicious and I had the steak, which was cooked perfectly. Would recommend this place to anybody. But know you're gonna spend.

    Do slurp up fresh oysters and fried chicken and waffles. Don't be deterred by the wait or bustling/cramped space. Its so worth it!

    Oysters are the best I've had in a long time. Briny and meaty. Artichoke dip also amazing but not if you're on a diet.

    Great salads. Also, the 6$ oyster shooter is a steal. Only on the brunch menu, but they always have oysters......

    I don't know why so many people are touting the huevos. I thought they were largely flavorless and boring. Go for the fried chicken and waffles.

    Don't be surprised when assholes will ignore you when you ask them to move their bags from the bench so you can sit down at your own table.

    Full plate of big fried chicken and soft waffles will leave you satisfied and smiling, but not stuffed. Don't ask me to share...

    I'm really hoping they accidentally served me decaf all morning because the coffee was WEAK. The Huevos Rancheros were really good though, I would go again just for that.

    One of the best restaurants in Fort Greene. 1/2 off oysters during happy hour M-TH.

    Be sure to order an espresso after dinner. Why? Because they don't have an espresso machine and, hopefully, if enough people order it, they'll get one.

    If you're as lucky as I am you'll hear Funky Cold Medina, Rapper's Delight and Push It while eating your artichoke dip.

    Meh to the chicken and waffles. If you're in Brooklyn, there are a lot of other options for gooooood chicken and waffles. The huevos rancheros were decent. Maybe it's an off day for Walter's.
  • Anthony M.
    The Blackened Catfish on the brunch menu is delicious, as is the French Dip on the dinner menu.

    The Cajun catfish sandwich is AMAZING! Just make sure they don't give you tail end of the fish.

    The fried chicken is all it's cracked up to be. Use lots of spicy honey... it's marvelous.
