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.

Valley Lodge is that neighborhood gem that you always hope to find. Great food, great service, great values. The people are friendly and welcoming. We showed up last Friday night and only waited a few minutes during a very busy night to be seated. Our server was right over, let us know the specials and made us feel right at... More

Cute little neighborhood restaurant/bar. Reasonable prices, variety of entrees & friendly waitstaff. Very comfortable atmosphere. Several TV's if u want to catch a sports cast while dining or at the bar. Really enjoyed our dinner & would definitely comeback again. This would be a great place to,have lunch or dinner with another couple or friends.

Been coming here for years. Great local spot where everybody knows your name. Friendly atmosphere. The bar staff is there to help you enjoy. Sports viewing, burgers, ribs, salads (ask for the Cheeseburger salad or the grilled shrimp Cobb if you don't see it on the specials) and Greek chicken--all terrific.

The Lodge is a reliable restaurant with good food and good service. My 80-year old friend has been going to the restaurant forever! Fish and chips are good, the prime rib and they serve a great French onion soup. It also has a great bar area with friendly people. I've been going to the Lodge since I moved to the... More
