Diner Reviews
  • "Has potential, but needs some attention to facility and processes. Add something to absorb sound in dining room (and turn down bar music). Kitchen and service staff need to learn how to pace better. We went for a relaxing meal and were done drinks, appetizer, and entree in 35 minutes! We decided to linger and eventually ordered dessert, but felt extremely rushed. Salad and ice cream were excellent. Other items were okay. I'd go back, but am hoping they improve before I do or probably would pass it up for other local places that know how to serve a great meal."

  • "We've been to The Valley Inn twice now. The food is quite good; the service has been very good as well. How did we do without this place for so many years?"

  • "We recently went to the Valley Inn for a birthday dinner. I had asked for a quiet table as one member of our party is hearing impaired, and I had heard that the restaurant was very noisy. We had a table in the corner, right next to the kitchen. It was very loud in the restaurant and it was hard for all of us to hear each other. However, the next table was so close that it was hard to imagine that the party next to us didn't hear every word we said. We all ate from the light fare portion of the menu because the prices of the entrees seemed somewhat steep to us. That said, the food was very good and plentiful, and everyone was very satisfied with their meals. The kitchen was very accommodating to dietary changes and that was wonderful too."

  • "Couldn't have a conversation. I was seated near the bar area. Food was just ok. Steak fries are big and tasteless. Not impressed."

  • "Rock fish dinner with Risotto was superb !!! Friends said Seafood salad was delicious, and shrimp salad was great. Lots of good healthy choices on the menu, and Bar comfort food as well."

  • "Warm horse racing themed main dining room. Generous pours from the bar. Burger good size and you can taste the delicious burger with havarti cheese. Service is friendly. Ice cream deserts more than enough to share."

  • "The vegetable stack was amazing! My daughter & I ordered that to share and they kindly divided the dish on to separate plates. Burgers were amazing & the Raspberry Chip Ice Cream was like no other! I mentioned on our OT Reservation this was a Birthday celebration for our daughter & they surprised her with a candle thoughtfully placed in the center of her ice cream dessert!"

  • "When I read that the historic Valley Inn had new ownership, it was an exciting prospect. The building and location are ripe with potential. Unfortunately, the interior remains dark and dank, with a lingering odor of stale urine. The bathrooms have clearly been overlooked by the new owner as well as any cleaning staff, and are unpleasant at best. The service was mediocre. The firecracker shrimp appetizer had no spark. The saving grace was the TABLT, which was a generously proportioned sandwich with what seemed to be hand-carved turkey breast, served with crisp and flavorful potato chips. I regretted the messy ahi tortillas (which were raw, yet room temperature), and the bland and slimy guacamole was inedible. Bad lunch overall--for $68."

  • "I thought the food was good but what was very strange is that two of us got the same thing- the blackened mahi sandwich- and my portion size was about 3 ounces. My Dad's was about 6-7 ounces. My piece didn't even cover 2/3 of the bun, and it was thin. When we showed the waitress, she was not very interested and tried to say mine was "probably thicker" than my Dads, instead of saying oh yes, let me show the kitchen or anything of that sort. So- that has never happened to me in my life and I would think there should be better oversight in the kitchen, and more professional servers as well. The noise was extreme and made it hard for my parents to hear. It didn't bother me but beware if you are with those who are hard of hearing."

  • "My wife and I thought the food was just so-so. The menu was uninspired and the price just not worth it. For the same money we could have gone to Linwoods and had a much better meal."

  • "Second visit and better than the first. Food was fine, liked the crab cake, not the lobster burrito. Crab soup different, should have kept Bud's recipe. Owner present but not engaging. Drinks finally improving but way expensive. It's got a great location and the improvements are first class. BUt you can't eat atmosphere so more treaking of the food and some reasonable drinks would be great."

  • "I had recently been to The Valley Inn for lunch and it was fantastic…great crab soup and terrific sandwiches. Decided to try dinner - my seafood salad was really good. My dinner mates had entrees - crab imperial and scottish salmon. VERY small portions. They were finished their dinners and sat watching me eat my salad. My husband ordered a side of asparagus with his dinner - 7 skinny spears of asparagus for $9…yikes! However, they were good. In my opinion lunch seems the better choice although I will go back and have soup and a burger."

  • "Liked the new dining room a lot. Our server Joe was incredible! Ahut tuna was horrible! All the food I was served with was delicious, the fish itself was too big to be served for ahi and was chewy and tough. The fish special my husband got was equally as bad. The chicken soup was fabulous and the chips and guacamole were pretty good! Next time I'll stick with the more traditional foods they have and get the burger! The food here just isn't up to snuff like Oregon grille, but I guess like other reviewer said, if I want that, then go there! Great to have the place re-opened. I'm sure they'll iron out the food issues as they go along"

  • "We went for dinner on Sunday evening - our the first visit since it opened under new management. The ambience is very nice - reminiscent of the Oregon Grill but more casual. The appetizers little neck clams and the special soft shell crab appetizers were outstanding. The cheeseburger was tasty, but the chicken was slightly undercooked and chewy. Overall a good experience, so we'll give it another try."

  • "We always liked the Valley Inn which is located less than 10 minutes from our house. When it closed down we were devistted. Fortunately it has reopened and with a bang. The atmosphere and the service was great, but the food was truly outstanding. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!"

  • "I guess if what we like is the Oregon Grille, we should have just gone to the Oregon Grille. Food is chain-restaurant quality (think Chili's or Applebee's) and service was slow and inattentive (sat for 10 minutes during main course with empty drink glasses). Not impressed. Won't be back."

  • "After all the years it's nice to see the VI back open. Very good crabcake and burgers. Didn't try other stuff. Wines are overpriced. Hope they will open an outside eating area."

  • "At 6:00 with a reservation, I was escorted to a table in the bar area. When I complained that I had a reservation and didn't want to sit in the bar I was told that the main dining room was full and basically take it or leave it. My daughter and I ordered poached lobster with risotto. The lobster was seriously overcooked and tasted like rubber and the risotto was so salty that it was awful. I shoved it down since I was so hungry and didn't want to wait for another meal but my daughter refused to eat it for $27 and ordered a crab cake. The server was very pleasant about our dissatisfaction unlike the host who really didn't give a hoot. She enjoyed her crab cake but the overall experience left a lot to be desired!"

  • "Great menu, food, service, prices. Something for everyone. Manager checked in with us, which was so refreshing. Can't wait to go back. Menu has tons of salads, apps, burgers, entrees, something for everyone! Salmon was delicious, as well as, the crab cake. Great cocktail list too!"

The decor was very pleasing and represented the tradition of maryland horse country. the menu was diverse and everyone at our table (4) enjoyed the dinner. the server was extremely pleasant and efficient. a good time was had by all."

  • "This was our first trip to the restaurant since it re-opened. Was surprised that some of the entrée prices were in the $30 range. And I was perplexed by some of the entrees, for example, mini meatloaf. Why have mini meatloaf and not a full sized piece? The seafood chopped salad was good as was the mini meatloaf. And it was odd to see such a formal setting lined with racing related art and objects and to find the wait staff in jeans. Western versus racing. "

  • "Love the location and has great parking. Ambiance in the back booth area/foyer area was lacking, but the front bar area seemed nice (I'll try that next time). Food was OK, but there's room for improvement. I believe the owners aren't quite finished making updates to the building, so I'm looking forward to seeing what changes are made over the next few months."
