Never a disappointment when we dine at Bocco's Italian & Wine Bar. Lindsey took exceptional care of us. We took some friends with us on our last visit and they loved it too. The rooms are pleasing and Italian music is a great touch.

I have been meeting friends, family, and business associates at the Valley Inn for decades as it has evolved from a private club to a new owner. The menu and bar items have changed over the years as well. I welcome changes to the menu. The Valley Inn strives toward quality food at good prices and service with occasional entertainment. A variety of seating areas include an upper deck, bar, and dining areas as well as a private room upstairs for parties and events.

About the restaurant
One of the best restaurants in Maryland is located just two miles from I-95 exit 74 at Mountain Branch Golf Course - 20 minutes from Baltimore.
Constructed out of three acres of Oregon’s finest Douglas Fir, the historic-looking timber-pegged post and beam structure has high ceilings, multilevel architecture and a magnificent view. The Grille & Pub at Mountain Branch is a favorite for relaxing after a round of golf and is an ever-popular destination for lunch, dinner and late night. Spacious patios afford dining al fresco when the weather is mild. And when winter winds are blowing, a large fireplace keeps the inside warm and cozy. The American-classic menu offers a diverse mix of tastes, including soups, salads, and sandwiches as well as fresh fish, crab cakes and Angus beef. Our chefs take pride in keeping the offerings creative and interesting - taking full advantage of fresh seasonal ingredients.

We greatly enjoyed our meal at Mountain Branch. It was our first time there and won't be our last. The restaurant itself is rustic and beautiful. Not only was the meal delicious but our server was very efficient and friendly. She made sure many times that we had what we needed and that we were happy with our meals.
