I went on my weekly outing with my next door neighbor on Wednesday. Because I had an Entertainment Book coupon for Walker's we went there. The first thing I noticed was a party of 14 and only a single server. We sat ourselves down and waited, and waited. After about 15 minutes the owner came through the restaurant (from the... More

We have eaten here 8+ times in the last year. We have taken long time Naperville friends to enjoy the excellent selection and specialties. The food is excellent, chef has many specials and they are always good. However there seems to be a lack of organization in the front of the house. People are seated and then wait 10+ minutes...

I am so sad to write this review. My husband and I haven't gone out for New Years Eve in at least 10 years. We decided this year we would go out for dinner. On Wednesday, December 28th, I made a reservation at Walker's for 7:30 on December 31, 2016, thru Open Table and received a confirmation. i thought it... More

I was in the neighborhood and looking for a restaurant to eat. I saw this restaurant in Groupon and decided to give it a try. It was a nice surprise. We would never find this place on our own. The salad is fresh and portion is big. The signature dish, lamb chops, was very delicious. Tender and juicy. I also... More

I had not visited Walker's in a few years wanted to take my family there. I knew they had a recent ownership change do I did not know what to expect. We visited during the week and noticed they were very busy. It had the same neighborhood feel as before. The menu looked great. My wife and I both ordered... More

This is our 5th time here for dinner since moving to the Naperville area this summer. We have always had a wonderful meal here. We've been here during slow nights & really busy nights. The service is always very prompt & we are always well taken care of. It reminds us of a bit of a quaint pub in an... More

Old school, small family owned place. Crowded Friday night and tough for waitresses to stay on top of it, but did a good job. Had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was delicious but was pricey for the portion. Ribeye was cooked as ordered and tasty. Calamari appetizer was great, not your typical fried Calamari. We will be heading back... More

If you are sick of fast food burgers, try Walker's. They use a very good quality meat, cooked to order, nice and juicy. You van get your burger pretty much your way, they have a lot of different cheese to choose from and the buns are great! I had one with bacon jam on it, really good. You will pay... More

We've been visiting Walker's Char House since the late 1990's and through one ownership change. It has changed little and still cooks up the finished char broiled steaks, burgers and sea food in the Naperville area at a fraction of the cost that you would pay in other Naperville restaurants. Walker's is located in a strip mall off of Washington... More

The steak my wife ordered was perfectly prepared. Our friend ordered lamb chops and they were perfect. I had the ribs, exquisite. The ambiance is what one would expect from a strip mall restaurant, but the food is quite good. Excellent service, tasty food, good choice.
