I now remember the reason we don't go here...

The hostess was not friendly; we weren't even greeted, an older woman just glanced up and grumbled "two?" She led us to a table way in the back. We waited a few minutes for the waitress, who was nice, but seemed very rushed. She was shouting to her tables from afar and seemed like she had too much... read more

We went there for lunch with freinds. Every ones food was either under cooked over cooked or cold.

We tried to talk with the manager and they gave us a... More

Will make sure next time I don't ask for chicken tenders appetizer!They give you 4 small pieces.. And it is pricey... Waitress was OK, not so pleasant... We had hamburger that came with the fries... It was Ok. Next time I will think twice before I go back.

Ordered a pastrami rueben. Okay that it was smothered in sauerkraut and onions, but this smothering hid fact that there was almost No Pastrami. When will restaurants stop skimping on portions and give customers a fair shake.

All I can say is that service was SLOW from the elderly hostess seating us to the young waitress taking our order. Did not bring our coffee until after she brought the meal and we had to remind her to bring it. She disappeared for a while and I had to ask another waiter to bring our check. He was... More

Valley Diner is always good for a family meal or BFF together. Service is always quick & friendly. They have large portions at those wonderful diner prices. You really can`t go wrong. My favorite is their French Dip or Grilled Ham & Cheese sandwich. This past winter we were sat next to Lauren Ambrose you just never know who will... More

We had a lovely lunch with fast service and good food after we were out shopping at Adam's this past weekend. There are steady stream of customers at this popular Diner - for good reason. Their prices are reasonable and the food is good. We ordered chicken souvlaki and Greek salad. The portions were ample and the waitress attentive. My... More

Only area diner where the breakfast is always done exactly as you ordered it! Only Valley gets the home fries perfectly. Prices are great too. Just wish they wouldn't have Fox on all the TVs all the time!. I'd rather leave politics outside when having my breakfast. Channel 12 maybe?
