The calamari appetizer was much to crisp not enough of the calamari coming through. Need to improve the preparation.
The ancient stone building creates a majestic, historical, awesome appearance, as one drives into the countryside parking lot, which is enormous and free of charge. An aura of excitement lingers in the air, as we enter through the old doors to the little welcoming lobby. Where will we dine today? There are several rooms. The horsey pictures and then the Oceanside water fowl delineate the two large rooms. The fox hunt room, with booths, and paneling is large but cozy. The next room is the big porch, where windows abut the patio, which is a nice seated area in warm area. Of course, there is an upstairs and a bar, too. This restaurant is a landmark that our society needs and appreciates.
There is an extensive menu. Oysters were featured this month. The selections were delicious except for the oyster SOUP, which is NOT stew but more like grandmother’s chicken gravy. All other selections on the menu are delicious and nicely presented. Everyone of our 15 diners were pleased.
The only complaint: Noise! Everyone I know, who frequents this charmer, comments on that one negative aspect.
Our dog had died that afternoon and we wanted to go somewhere that offered good food and a great ambiance to toast his life. i had a wonderful grilled lobster burrito. My husband had crab stuffed oysters and brussels sprouts. We each had a terrific Manhattan.
The food was very good. The service was very good. We have been here a few times the last 3 months. We would go back again.
Everything great! Birthday brunch.
How not been there since it was remodeled. Great job. Menu was extensive and even had a special one for oysters that are in season now. Appetizers are HUGE!
Service was excellent also! Will definitely go again!!
Busy spot for weekday lunch. Lot of business lunches. I had the chopped Cobb salad. It was very good however I ordered the wrong dressing-my error. Vinaigrette was too acidic. Didn’t order but saw some desserts, brownies alamode and hot fudge sundae- looked good and relatively reasonable size.
Ray, our bartender was great. Excellent service
I had the maple pork chop with red cabbage. So so delicious. My husband loved his meal. We were in a cozy booth, and it was both romantic and fun. Our server was Cassy, who was attentive and personable.
We will recommend!
Excellent service...I will get his name. He plays in a band. Always love the oysters and a fairly generous pour of wine.
We had a very nice time at the Valley Inn. The food was excellent as was the service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
we had an early reservation, restaurant not crowded, Hostess walks us thru 2 rooms to enclosed porch. We asked to go in other inside room, so while we walked thru there were singles in boothes and empty tables Hostess puts the 2 of us in the back of the room at a table for two. That was about the third time the hostesses have been like that. Then I got a call from a doctor I had to take so I walked to the spece behind the bar and was quietly on the phone with not one person walking thru that space when a nasty man says this is the wait staff pass thru you cant be there. Customer service is in general awful But we had a wonderful waiter, Andrew, which was the only positive.
Your Monday night Burger deal is the best, great value,great burger,great service
Expensive, Good. Adding $ 6.00 for French Fries to a $ 25.00 Entrée is a little too much.
When with dear friends for lunch. Excellent service! Large and tasty portions.
We had a wonderful meal and excellent service. We we're seated perfectly where we asked to be seated. The food was much better than last time we were there during the holidays.
First time dining here, and appeared to be very busy on a Monday evening. We were promptly seated (I had made reservations a few days earlier) and the wait staff were very attentive and friendly. My wife's lobster with crab imperial was great, and reasonably priced. The Valley Burger was done to my specifications and was generously sized and well seasoned. Steak fries were slightly greasy but still tasty. I noticed quite a few of the burgers being served when we were there, so that appears to be a popular item. The malted waffle ice cream "sandwich" for desert was delicious, but a bit awkward to eat...difficult to cut with a spoon and too messy to pick up as a normal ice cream sandwich. Will definitely return here again--I liked the warm and inviting atmosphere and menu variety.
Cozy restaurant with good food. Would definitely make reservations especially on the weekend.
Excellent good and service! Highly recommended...
The food and service are always good. The menu has delicious salads and comfort food. The only thing that makes us hesitant about going there at busy times is the noise level.
