Was again impressed with Walker House on Saturday when we attended with a group of 10. Staff and service was excellent. All orders came out together, as ordered and piping hot. Caesars all around and a variety of fish, hot beef sandwiches and chicken/rib dishes were served. No one was disappointed with their meals and all were surprised by the... More

The Walker House renovations continue , the building is looking great . The staff is evolving to a smaller degree . Jake has left to pursue interests in Toronto , and his passion for the Walker House will be missed. However, Sasha has been a welcome addition and has maintained the reputation the Walker House has earned over the past... More

We went to Southampton to visit friends and we were looking forward to getting to The Walker House for dinner and see the renovated bar. Unfortunately the bar was opening the following day. We sat in the other dining room and enjoyed a great meal and a few drinks. The staff are friendly, personable and accommodating. The dining room is... More

Good salads and wings, a reasonable selection of liquor & spirits. A nice place to meet with friends for a night out. Reasonably priced, good portions, good staff.

We were visiting from out of town and this was the only restaurant open on the Sunday night. It was busy! The staff were very pleasant and nice - they even let us leave our table to watch the sunset and come back later. However, I was a little disappointed in the food for the price ($22). The food was...

It is unfortunate that the front of the house is in such disarray that it obliterates the decent food being put out by the chef. It started going wrong with the drinks order. There were six adults ordering from the bar. The order was taken by one staff member and a second and third staff member delivered the drinks two... More

This place is under extensive renovation but still manages to serve very good food. I had a ceasar salad and chicken club sandwich. So much, that my husband had to finish part of it. His greek salad was also impressive. Lots of beer drinkers there, but a friendly place to eat. Will definitely return.

Food here has always been good, but until a couple of years ago the atmosphere could be best described as "dirty old bar". With the new ownership this place has upgraded to a truly nice atmosphere, classy, with a wonderful menu. Outstanding place for a quiet beer, a family meal, or romantic dinner.

Thank Sammy H
