the experience was enjoyable. We dined outside. for approximately the first 15 min there was a commercial vehicle servicing the restaurant. After it left the sounds and view were welcoming.
We had two entrees an appetizer and a dessert. The appetizer was presented well and satisfied both people. One entree ceasar salad with protein, generated the following statement; "best caesar I've ever had". The other was a seafood sandwich which was good, however an ingredient noted on the menu was missing. It did not take away from the sandwich but it made it somewhat pedestrian. I believe if it was a part of the entree it would have made it quite nice.
I did not mention it to the staff because I didn't realize it till the end of the meal. The staff person did a very nice job; attentive and timely.
One of the best times we've ever had! Waitress was fantastic as was the food, and, of course, the setting is always lovely.
Going to Valley Green is always wonderful. Having gone there for so many years I am never disappointed. It has, and will have many great memories in the future as a delightful experience.
Love it there.
Nice ambiance, fair food and service, somewhat repetitive menu/specials, odd cocktail list. Cocktails would be the #1 thing I'd recommend improving since there is a bar.
We ate on the porch. The food was terrific and waiter did a nice job. We tried several appetizers and liked them all. Added a nice bottle of wine and sheared the molten lava cake. Huge success!
Fast friendly service, good food, relaxing lively atmosphere
Food was yummy
The food was delicious, loved the covered porch and the view was pretty.
Wonderful food and service as usual. Will be back again!
Excellent meal at Valley Green. Lovely setting, good food, good service.
Ate on the porch outdoors, overlooking the trail and creek. Very scenic and great for people and puppy watching.
What a wonderful evening. Great menu, making it hard to choose, but all four of us loved our meals. Every member of the staff was great - friendly, helpful and masked. The setting is everything - historic and serene. After a long week of work, this was the perfect place for a Firsay night out.
Always a great spot! The outside is as pretty as the inside. Salmon was delicious. Can’t beat the value for a special occasion.
Food was so good and the setting is beautiful.
Food was delicious, had the salmon imperial feature for dinner. Salmon was cooked perfect, crab had a nice crisp on top. Everything was delicious. Alyssa took great care of us.
Upon arrival their reservations were not accessed but they did have a table
Service was a little slow but it was a nice day and they tried to keep everyone
Lovely setting. Great food and service. A real treat.
Always a lovely experience recommend to anyone. Outside especially nice
The Food was excellent the staff was helpful and friendly just a pleasant experience.
Had not been for a long time. Very happy to have gone back.
Interesting menu, food was tasty and plated nicely.
Sat on the front porch it was great.
Went for my birthday lunch and salads were large, reasonable and yummy! We got wings too and they were great. Our server was attentive and checked in often!
Good food. More vegetarian choices would be nice. Very nice wait staff. Eating outside on the porch is generally a very nice experience; once in a while, some of the passing walkers can be loud.
Wonderful meal in a beautiful setting
our waitress was amazing. I forgot her name but she had red hair. she truly made the dinner have a wonderful vibe. tell her thank you
Very casual and low key. Drinks and food were exceptional. Would definitely go again.
This makes for a perfect way to relax and experience the park.
I love this restaurant. After moving to Philly from the Bay Area I am always craving nature - so to be able to sit at this very relaxed, lovely inn ensconced in the beauty of the Wissahickon - well, I am in heaven. Add to that the extremely friendly and helpful staff -
and relaxed vibe of the place - plus three delicious meals I have had - now calling this my favorite place.
Also, I am on an elimination diet and they were so helpful and patient in accommodating my dietary restrictions. A+.
Food was delicious. Good choices on the menu. Excellent caring service.
I was looking for a place for dinner that has excellent food, suburb atmosphere and good service. What a delight Valley Green was even on a hot summer evening eating outdoors on the porch immersed in nature and watching the geese fly in for a landing on the river! We joined their Club online and received a wonderful offer for a free appetizer with my entree. We had the tuna tartare which was great and that night's special, a summer berry salad with greens and salmon imperial. All totally yummy!
Beautiful rustic and historic atmosphere coupled with excellent service and great food. Will be back again. A wonderful gem!
Very nice over all. The iced coffee is ridiculously weak with mostly milk, but everything else was very nice.
Took my sister there for her birthday along with my niece and nephew. We had a nice table on the porch. We were wondering why it was not very busy, but soon found out that as soon as lunch was thru, the restaurant was closing down to prepare for a wedding. Very beautiful setting for a wedding! Like everywhere else, things are a little pricey now. Still one of my most favorite places. Would have perhaps liked to be offered another drink but the waitress never did.
We arrived early, but the staff was very accommodating and sat us immediately. The Chicken and Corn Chowder soup was savory and delicious--golden in color and comprised of fresh vegetables and generous amount of chicken. I had the short ribs, and my husband had the crab cakes. Both were very good. Best of all, the soup and the short ribs were gluten-free. You can't beat the historic ambiance and the beautiful view of the Wissahickon Creek. It is a step back in time. I would recommend indoor seating if dining in the summer months and you are seeking a quiet atmosphere. We couldn't hear a thing from the outdoors. Sit outside if you'd like to enjoy the park guests and average-to above-average picnic noise. A special find.
We were nine people at lunch, including two small children. It was a beautiful 4th of July morning, but we found parking spaces after just a bit of jockeying — an auspicious beginning. The Inn’s host knew from our reservation that we wanted to be outdoors, and offered us a choice of tables — one table for 9 in the sun with a fan overhead, or two smaller tables in the shade on the porch. We chose porch. As it happened, the people at one table chose conventional offerings: burgers, chicken wings, fries, Caesar salad. They were pleased, but found more pleasure in each other’s company than the food. The three adults at the second table ordered cauliflower tempura (crisply cooked and served in a light aioli with chili oil), hummus with roasted celery root, shallots, and honey, and battered Thai shrimp, just a bit spicy. One of us also had a cup of chicken corn chowder, and the child had a hot dog. The people at this table were delighted with the food, wishing only that there had been six shrimp rather than four. We all had a fine time!
Outstanding service from our waiter Max and the whole staff! So thankful for their attention to detail regarding my mother-in-law's food allergies and their courtesy when the kitchen made a small error for my own meal. The food was fresh and high quality for the price, and the view of the thunderstorm from the porch felt truly special. We will definitely be back!
We very much enjoyed our lunch at Valley Green
We had a lovely dinner on the porch. The food was excellent and our server did a good job taking care of us despite a large party in another room. So glad the Inn is open and operational. It’s a treat!
Great outdoor seating, awesome server who was very kind, and great food.
Wonderful place - cosy, quiet tonight and just perfect for our conversation. The food was very good - transcendent salmon perfectly prepared & my companion had the short ribs which he praised mightily. Service? Superb.
