Throwback Thursday 1966 – Walt’s

  • Lyndon Johnson was president
  • A first class stamp was a nickel
  • Notre Dame & Michigan State tied for the NCAA football title
  • Walt’s Restaurant began in Caseville.

walts2An institution in the Upper Thumb and owned by the same family for 50 years the restaurant celebrates it golden anniversary in 2016. Favored by locals and sought out by tourists, Walt’s is considered one of the top breakfast places in the Thumb. The servers come with an attitude that can come off as snarky but is good natured. Offers good American style breakfast with homemade bread and jams.  Insider hints; its cash only but an ATM is across the street,  If you really want a hamburger at 8am they can accommodate. Congratulations!!

  1. When was it Walt & Dort’s? That’s what I remember first. You’re right, the waitresses can intimidate visitors with big city requests! I’ve seen it with delight! And they were my guests!
