Reviews for The Walnut

I am homeless and because I have an arm cast on and another cast on my left leg I cannot work and I cannot make money until I heal so I went to this restaurant to find a Good Samaritan who would be willing to buy me food and the staff chased me away claiming that I was scaring the customers.\\nHow can anyone be scared of a crippled homeless person who can barely walk or stand up? The staff that chased me away seemed terrified of me. Am I just that ugly? Is that it? Staff full review

Amazing! I ordered the west coast burger(pepper jack cheese, smoked bacon, mustard, ketchup, and avocado with parmesan fries and it was great! Husband got chicken wings and pork belly burnt ends(sorry no pics). I tried the burnt ends and they were so flavorful! Waitresses both were attentive and great. Definitely going to be a go to place!

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.
