Nothing fancy but an excellent, low-key place to head to with friends with decent service and good prices. I've been here half a dozen times and have never been disappointed. It's a bit jam-packed with tables, so don't expect much privacy.

Walkers has the best food in Lower Manhattan. The atmosphere is amazing. I've never had a meal below 100%. The owners should be thanked for the great service they present the area.

Ah Walkers. If there were a TV show about a bar in New York, this would be the setting. It has the looks (worn wooden floors, mahogany bar, door on the street corner with large windows), the service, the food and the drink. It is right by the 1st Precinct and their stables so you could work investigations and horses into the storylines... Hey it could be called "Walkers." It has a nice ring to it.. Anyhow. I am very picky about where I drink Guinness as it picks up and magnifies all sorts of bitter flavors easily from the bar's pipes and even glasses. If a bar serves bad pints, then I will generally order a lager or other beer in a bottle and drink from the bottle as the taste doesn't depend on the bar's pipes or glasses. In short, I use the Guinness pour and taste as a barometer of a barman and the bar (how they clean the pipes, glasses etc.) Walkers pour a great pint with a creamy taste. Walkers barstaff are efficient and friendly without being cheesy. They will pour a pint with a simple nod. The food is excellent for a bar. I live in the area and this is my local.

I work just a couple of blocks away and have visited this fine establishment several times for lunch [and once for dinner with my girlfriend]. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced. The service is good except for the busy lunch times where it can be slow at times, however, overall, a very very good place. The quesadillas for dinner was unexpectedly great. Will definitely continue visiting!

My girlfriend and I found this neighborhood fixture soon after I moved downtown a couple years ago and we have eaten here dozens of times - the food is really good and consistent, and very well priced. There is a cool relaxked vibe here, not pretentious, and it has a lot of old fashioned charatcter and style. Fantastic burger and fries.

A long way west of where I live & eat, I stumbled upon this place with friends in the neighborhood in December and cannot stop wanting to go there. I love the staff, the food [lyrical pasta primavera is my dear = 10.95 with salad = a boon to starving librarians], and the ambience. It's open late, unlike the yuppie havens that are all around, and feels like home. It is still not readily apparent whether it is the paper covered tables with crayons or the kindness of the waitress or the garlic inflected pasta that make me want to eat there nightly, but I want to go every night.

We went to Walker's on a Thursday night on the recommendation of a friend who used to live in the neighborhood. We got prime seats at the bar and had a few drinks and dinner. The bartender was very friendly and made me a surprise drink when I couldn't decide what I wanted. My boyfried, who is a connoisseur of chicken wings, gave the wings a strong approval. We had the potato crusted salmon and swordfish for dinner. Both tasted fresh and delicious. The best part was the price, as it was very reasonable- around $13 an entree. I will definitely go back often.
