Dining on the porch of the Valley Green Inn is always a delight, but especially in these COVID days. As usual, the food was exceptional, particularly the corn chowder, which proved one of the very best I've ever tasted.
Great experience with outdoor dining and delicious food!
So beautiful there so naturally it was crowded. Wait was a little long so don’t go if you are in a hurry. But do go if you like leisurely dining in a great atmosphere and good food.
We lucked out with beautiful weather and our table was available when we arrived for our reservation. Service was good but not polished, ok under circumstances for lunch service. We both enjoyed our meals and thoroughly enjoyed truffle french fries as a starter. With limited seating a reservation is recommended unless you go 'off' hours.
This is a great place to grab some drinks outside and people watch along the Wissahickon trail.
Trish was sooo
attentive. New chef. Awesome new menu.
Made a reservation so had our choice of table on the porch. Due to social distancing, not able to sit along railing by Forbidding Drive, but table was fine- had good view of Wissahickon Creek.
Drinks and food served in timely manner.
Server very nice.
Lovely place to eat. I have been here 3 times and I was never disappointed.
Nothing can beat the view and peaceful beauty of this Philadelphia gem. Often overlooked, the incomparable tranquil wooded setting is well paired with delicious food.
Although it was a littel drizzly, lunch at Valley Green was so nice. I enjoyed a freshley prepared mushroom gyro - tasty, and served with a smile. It came with a small sidesalad that was good too. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The noise of the lighly falling rain on the portico was nice. Thank you ! we will be back soon.
Food was good. Service was poor. Bathrooms were unkept. No toilet paper in two stalls, trashcan was overflowing. Dirty dishes in stacked in the lobby. Will not return. Beautiful sitting outside.
Wonderful evening on the patio. The creek and activity on Forbidden Drive provided a lively and beautiful setting. Good food served in a caring way.
Food was blah and over priced and they literally made us move from our table when we just ordered a drink and were there for 40 min to give it to someone else...
This was the first time eating out since March. The Inn is in a wonderful location .. the tables were set up lovely. It was peaceful. I ordered a burger, something I haven't had in ages. It was not cooked as I had requested and it was overall disappointing. For the money I would expect better. The side salad was good. Thankfully it was a beautiful day, and I was just happy to be on a lovely patio overlooking the water and at a resturant.
The food was great and the setting is lovely. Our server was the only server there (it was a Tuesday night) and did a fantastic job, we didn't wait long for anything. One of my favorite spots.
I realize these are challenging time with corona. The menu is very limited. Husband liked his chicken sandwich but very few items on the menu without garlic. I HATE garlic. Not even a drop. So I got a salad with olive oil. The salad, to me, tasted icky,, Like an old Lady. Was it the cilantro in it? Idk. Ate half anyway bc I was hungry. But the atmosphere is just beautiful, we sat outside. I’d always wanted to check this place out and while the restaurant and setting was lovely, staff was very sweet and helpful, I wasn’t a fan of the food but I’m a picky eater and as mentioned husband lined his dinner.
We wanted to take a bike ride in the park but needed a great place to stop, eat lunch and use the facilities. Valley Green Inn as perfect. We sat comfortably outside, under an awning, and far enough away from other dinners. I had fish cakes which were ample and perfectly prepared. My partner has a wedge salad with chicken which he loved. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly. This was a super way for us to get in a bike ride in a stunning setting during the pandemic. (We ride with our masks on!)
Great evening in a green environment.
Food was great, view from the front porch eating outside was wonderful, great for people and animal watching. Would definitely dine there again.
Good food, good service. Was able to maintain distance.
I loved the atmosphere and scenic location - and the food was just perfect! It's so nice to have a restaurant to visit that has ample tables at a distance where we can all feel safe. I can see why this place is such a draw for weddings and events - they have an amazing location for outdoor dining and events. We will be back for Sunday brunch!
It is a pleasure to dine at this quaint country inn tucked away in the Wissahicon Valley, but just minutes away from bustling Chesnut Hill and Germantown. The food was wonderful and our waiter was prompt and couteous. We first dined here 48 years ago, and it is comforting to know some things never change. The inn and its menu have a delightful rustic quality unmatched by any other restaurant in the Philadelphia area.
Sean, our server and apparently everyone’s, was excellent. The young woman helping him was as well and he praised her to us, more than once. « Teamwork makes the dream work » and everyone out front, as well as those buying, preparing, and plating the food provided us with an excellent dining experience on the porch of an aesthetically pleasing historic Inn.
Excellent restaurant, totally recommended. Great combination of delicious food, great staff and ambience
Great restaurant with old fashioned values for serving and quality.
The atmosphere is absolutely stunning and although I went with my three friends it is a great romantic location.
Great place and location. The food and service was a 5 Star rating.
Had a lovely outside table. Service from Irene was fabulous. She suggested the eggplant special and it didn’t disappoint. We’ll be back soon.
Can't beat the scenery here; the dog friendly patio overlooks Forbidden drive and the Wissahickon creek. Food is simple but delicious. Would recommend the hummus.
Had a great Time at Valley Green and will be returning! Food was great for lunch but very no-frills, sandwiches, steaks, salads, etc. The ambience outside was great and we felt safe social distancing. We did go on a Sunday and expected there to be a brunch that we saw on the website however it was not served that day. I would recommend calling ahead to get confirmation if you are super excited for brunch
This was perfect for the pandemic dining experience. Sat outside on their lovely front porch and felt very comfortable. Even in the summertime that porch feels like it gets good circulation and it was a pleasant temperature
Another wonderful experience at one of our favorites restaurants in the city. Thank you!
Took my mother here for her 92nd birthday. Having grown up in nearby Roxborough it was the perfect place for her to reminisce about coming here as a child. It was a delightful summer afternoon on the porch and the food was plentiful and very good. Service was attentive. Would like to come again.
The atmosphere is beautiful even on a rainy day. The food and service was very good!
Perfect and beautiful, every time
We have been going to Valley Green for several weeks. The food has been constantly good as has the service. The only issue is the mosquito's, you should wear insect repellent if you are someone that gets bitten.
Daughters birthday. But they took off the Mac and cheese that we went there for. It’s her favorite. So little disappointed. Food was ok
We had a great lunch and the seating outside was very nice. The table was clean and the service was great. Our server was awesome!
It was a beautiful experience, the food, waiter and price of our meal! 10/10
We were there for my daughter's birthday, our first time eating out since covid started. Everything was wonderful! Loved the BBQ'd salmon and truffle fries.
