one of the first customers at Wally's only first opened and still continue to visit them on a regular basis, every aspect of the restaurant visit meets or exceeds expectations. They deviated slightly from the original "Wally's American pub" a few years back but returned to the original theme and format, thank God for that !! Chad and Adam are usually on hand to address any concerns patrons may have and are always attentive and responsive to customers. Food is excellent, quality is exceptional, services outstanding and they don't deviate from any of these attributes. Family owned, and the family clearly takes pride in ownership-under the direction of Chris, family member over. Can't say enough about this establishment other than give it a try and formulate your own conclusion, I think you be pleased More

Perfect atmosphere for a date night. We had such a relaxing evening on the patio surrounded palm trees and lights. It was secluded a bit from the live music at the bar next door. So we could faintly hear it, but it was not distracting. The best of both worlds! They also provided us with coupons for a free gondola ride around the property. Additionally, we just walked to the live music after dinner because it all shares a space. It was a wonderful experience, and we’re excited to go back! More

"Sushi Marc" was our sushi chef...he made us some great customized rolls. My wife requested a few rolls with cucumber (versus rice) and Marc hooked us up. Cheyenne was our waitress and she did a great job of keeping the drinks flowing. My wife and I eat a lot of sushi. Our top picks locally have always been Pure Sushi and Roka Akor. We have to say that Noh is now our new favorite sushi restaurant! The whole key is Marc behind the bar making the sushi...he is amazing!! he's hilarious too...kept us entertained with stories all night. Without Marc this place would not be notable at all!! Everything was very fresh and surprisingly very affordable. Great service with beyond AWESOME sushi at a reasonable price!! We will be back for sure!! More
