    Front of the House - Smashingly well done. Ambassador Patti - “A” game was there. Wait Staff - Monica - menu knowledgeable; helpful; and attentive. Menu - Maryland crab soup - bowl - crab meat with visible and well balance to the rest of the soup content. Single crab cake - seasoned and tasty. Overall a wonderful lunch and experience. Shout out to Andrew for his recent Teamwork award. Andrew is always pleasant to be around. His high energy brings out the best in people!

    The food was excellent and the service was very good. We were seated in a room that had a plastic sheet for an exterior “wall.” The seat against the plastic was very cold. Moreover, the room was so loud that we could hardly hear one another without yelling.

    We have gone to the Valley Inn many times but this was the first time for Valentine's Day. There was a separate menu for couples and it was wonderful. Just on a regular day/ night the food and service is always great but they added a little flair, every woman/ girl received a rose and they had these cute little paper holders with hearts on them and a red Hershey kiss glued on it. Our server Rebecca was so sweet and she was a joy to have. We were sat next to the fireplace which was perfect and not too hot. If you decide to try the Valley Inn out you won't be disappointed.

    Always love dining at The Valley Inn — the food & service is superb with the exception of the hostesses who assumed that my wife & I were “galentine’s” instead of a couple. We had made a reservation for the main dining room & they seated us on the patio in a doorway where 2 people nearly knocked our table over. We promptly requested to be seated in the main dining room. The rest of the evening was lovely.

    In our many visits to Vally Inn, we are always pleased with the decor and atmosphere. The staff is always polite and attentive and the noise level is tolerable. My only small complaint was that the bun on our burger seemed a little hard.

Our waitress Anna was very attentive and efficient, sharing the menus with us and making suggestions re: our options. She checked on us frequently and provided us with prompt service for each course. The entrees and deserts were delicious. We look forward to our next visit.

    Front of the House - Ambassador Patti was Spot On. Welcoming; professional; and encourages you to come back. Nothing is assumed with Patti - see asks questions! Wait Staff - Monica - menu knowledgeable; helpful; and experienced. Engages with the diner and enhances the dining experience. Meal - Maryland Crab soup with two (2) packages of Oyster Crackers. Crab cake.

    The food was very good, as was the service. The only issue is that we were seated in the enclosed patio, and it was very loud. It was hard to hear anyone aside from the person sitting directly across from or next to you.

    Front of the House - Ambassador Patti - wonderful. Greets you by your name; warm; welcoming; and professional. Clearly a TVI believer and solid representative of the Atlas Restaurant Group brand. 5 Stars!!! Wait Staff - Stephanie - menu knowledgeable. Helpful. Works with grace. Meal - Maryland Crab Soup - tasty - seasoned - spot on! Chef’s attention to details. Single crab cake - “Lightening does strike twice” - little to no filler; presentation above average; taste - makes you want to order another. Solid lunch item. Special thanks to the kitchen Crew - wonderful lunch time options. When time permits the kitchen Crew should circulate the Dining Room for Meet and Greet. You make things happen and I like other guests would appreciate meeting you. Parking Lot - the recent weather is taking a toll on the already impacted asphalt surfacing. Those apparent trip/fall hazards have widened and are becoming more pronounced.

    I’ve eaten at the valley in many times usually have a great experience, while the food and ambience was still incredible The service was not after 45 minutes of waiting for our brunch. I finally said something they rushed it out five minutes later which would’ve been fine except we were late leaving for the game and had to hurry through our meal

    We had a reservation at 6:45 we were not seated until 7:20. Service was deplorable. I tried to book a party in the room upstairs and had no response by email. I physically went to the restaurant and talked to the manager who promised me someone would be in touch but I gave up since that was at least a month ago and no one has reached out.

    Overall it was a nice meal. When walking in the hostess barely acknowledged our existence and was too busy to look up to greet us. However our server was outstanding. Very helpful and attentive. Our food was good but not great. The best part of the meal was an outstanding Oreo cookie cheesecake. I would definitely go back and give it another try.

    Front of the House - Wonderful and professional. Ambassador Patti is the hub of successful operation. So many responsibilities run through Patti - successfully and with grace. Wait Staff - Stephanie - professional and seasoned. Menu knowledgeable and helpful. Attentive and anticipates the requirements. Meal - Maryland crab soup - visible crab meal; seasoned; warm; small cut vegetables; and tasty. Single crab cake - a repeat lunch item - go to menu. Pricing - rough and tough. Would like to experience a reduction. Go against the grain - be inflation fighting. That the lead and reduce price. Have a Wednesday Inflation Reduction Day on all menu items. Take a stand!!! Parking Lot - forward movement with those potential trip or fall hazards. As my friend said - those are potentially serious ankle busters. Please salt the Front Door entrance area. Your patrons are not getting younger. Thank you in advance.
