    First time in. Made a reservation online. (I recommend a reservation) I had the ultimate bacon sandwich. Most flavor filled form of a BLT I've had. My wife had the Valhalla burger and says it was amazing! Best burger she's had in a long time. We will be going again as the menu is full of food I want to try! The servers are very friendly with smiles on their faces.

    Very disappointed, servicer was slow to the point we cancelled our order as we had waited over 40 minutes and had not even received our appetizer. We tried ordering drinks from the drink menu and were told they no longer had anything for those drinks. We will not be back!

    The ValkyrieResponded on November 7, 2022Please come back! When I got hired I realized how bad this wait time was. I have hired about 10 new employees! its embarassing that youve had this experience. We have a new lunch and dinner menu coming out and I havent had one table wait over 30 minutes since your experience. Drinks take 5 minutes max and apps have been out in under 15minutes, Thank you for your valued feedback. We will always push to be faster and to do better. Just wanted to let you know the valkyrie you visited is gone.

    The wine list could use some help… food was outstanding! The chairs are very hard, they could use cushions. But the food, oh my! The lamb shank vegetable soup was so good…I had to get some to go!

    When we arrived, the Lady said there is a high top for you over there. I said we made reservations and I had marked no High top. She said I will have to put a table together. They never looked at OpenTable to see the reservation. The young lady that waited on us was very good. What made it bad for her was the Lady behind the bar. She was too busy talking to a couple sitting at the bar to make drinks. The food was just ok.

    The ValkyrieResponded on November 7, 2022Thank you for your valued feedback. We will always push to be faster and to do better. Just wanted to let you know the valkyrie you visited is gone. I have replaced every staff member including the lady behind the bar. Please stay tuned for we have a new lunch and dinner menu coming out. the food is not just okay. its something to rave about,

    We began the night by learning to throw axes and then moved to fun new drinks and a fabulous dinner. The lamb was a big hit with our friends. Our server was just the right amount of attentive.

    Please train waiter, but in his defense he was the only one waiting tables. Four in the kitchen one behind the bar. The waiter busted tables and waited on tables by himself. I know everyone is looking for staff. Dinner was great, ambience was good. would recommend it, but it needs work on training the waiter that was working he seemed flustered.

    We live 2 miles from this restaurant and hadn't tried it yet. We were very impressed w/ the quality of service and our meal. The waiter was more than accommodating and was pleasant. Cocktail choices were excellent.

    We had an impromptu evening out with friends! Wanted to try something NEW and the Valkyrie DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! Every dish that was served was amazing! The Wine and Cocktail BOOK … incredible! Something for EVERYONE and in NO way did it feel NEW! Absolutely welcomed and felt like we BELONGED there! Thank you Chris (our server) and everyone else who was part of making our much needed evening out perfect

    Reservations were given away even though we were on time. Took at least 20 min to even get a drink at the bar. Staff was overwhelmed. Willing to try again on a week night, but overall a pretty bad experience.

    We enjoyed our food and the smile we were greeted with by the owner personally. The axe throwing was booked, that was a bummer, next time for sure, and there will be a next time. The noise level was a bit high, not terrible.

    I really don’t like giving negative feedback and I realize how tough the restaurant business is. That said, I can’t give a dishonest review of our experience. I know it is hard to find employees at this time and it seemed our server was working alone even though there were two other visible staff at the front. Our server was very nice but she knew nothing about the wine selection which should be a prerequisite for a restaurant with wine offerings. Our mixed drinks were good but the meals were nothing special. The strip steaks were gristly and tough, the potatoes lukewarm. The salmon was probably the best, yet the rice it was served with was lukewarm as well. It was our friends anniversary which I noted on our Open Table reservation but nothing was mentioned. Unfortunately our overall experience was disappointing at best.
