Nice Bar, Good Food

Very friendly local establishment. The food is always good with an upscale sports bar. Food is quite traditional.

We brought our friends here, had not been here in years. We were seated immediately and our drink orders were taken. The two men ordered the full slab of baby back ribs and one woman ordered the salmon with a walnut pesto crust and I ordered half slab of ribs. We all had either salad or soup and everyone liked...

We went to the Valley after not having been there for quite some time. I have to say, the food was not as good as it once was and the service has declined. I think the owners have put their Glenview location in the backseat and are focusing on their new location in Wilmette. I don't know if we will... More

This is the place we go when we have a wide range of ages in our party. Older folks like the familiar menu and younger kids have a kids menu. It gets crowded and you may have to wait for a table, so if you have a group come as early as possible. Singles and doubles sit at the bar,... More

We went for dinner on a Friday night at 7, of course we expected to wait. However, we were told only 30 minutes. We were waiting by the bar with drinks. We had been waiting for about half an hour when we noticed a table in the back open. We watched as the hostess ignored the open table. We kept... More

Tends to draw an older set. They allow splitting entrees. Put out a good mixed drink. Portions are generous. Atmosphere nice but noisy. Service good and fast. You can get half portions on may items.

This longtime restaurant on Waukegan Road in Glenview is popular and often crowded. The pork ribs fall off the bone and are among the best in town. Seafood dishes were also well-received. The reuben sandwich was disappointing - the corned beef was stringy. The prices are right and the staff is friendly and low-key. Not a fancy place, but good... More

The food must be fresh because on a Wednesday evening, it WAS busy! We were seated in a comfortable booth and the service was good. Terrific warm bread and butter were delivered to the table when we arrived. Unfortunately after that, I found the food to be only fair. My steak sandwich which was ordered medium was well done and...

Every time I drive by this place, I think it looks like a great local hangout. Yesterday, I drove by with my daughter and we were hungry. Decided to stop. The atmosphere was cozy--a big burning fire, a lovely bar, comfy chairs. The service was good. Our appetizer was very slow coming out, and the manager was on it--even took... More

Been to the valley Lodge in Glenview numerous times. Loved the place. Atmosphere, people and food. Wilmette location I feel is bigger that comes with being louder. Food was ok but still like Glenview better. This a popular place. If one sits outside when warm would be better.
