  1. Not the same

    “This place is not as the same before. Service was never great. Bartenders or servers weren't never particularly friendly. I came here for crusing. All the Western tourstists were gone. There is no reason for me to come back. Everytime I came here in the last three years found locals here not particularly friendly. Sad. I have to let go and tell myself it's not worth coming back.“

  6. Lost so much of its charm.

    “When "Wally's" was located on Humphrey's Road, it used to be FULL of people almost every night. The new location on Austin Rd. is disappointing and hardly seems to attract anyone. I was there on a Saturday evening and it was empty! It's really no longer what it used to be and I'm a bit sad, because I used to enjoy going to this bar a lot at its old location.“

    • Faded Glory

      “I do agree with Alex that Wally Matt is not the place it used to be. I miss the old place's atmosphere. I went there twice, I was the only customer in the first instance. The 2nd time there was a group of young men singing karaoke. Gone are the days when it was the hot place for picking up & meeting people.“
