My goal is to keep this guide as up to date as possible. If you have new information about restaurants listed, or I've omitted your favorite Waltham restaurant, please let me know. Some good suggestions I've received from readers: list Kosher and Halal restaurants, list places that have brunch, note whether the restaurant delivers, or has takeout. All Waltham restaurants are now non-smoking. Reviews or other comments from readers are welcome. Contact Scott at sshurr@gmail.com
