One of my favorite local places for dinner. Fantastic menu, great service, and awesome bar. I love that it is locally run and by one of the best woman chef's around. I've been to an event in the new banquet room and it was lovely. Usually pretty busy on Thursday - Saturday so expect a wait if you go during... More

We were invited here for a celebration for someone very dear to me. We were in a beautiful separate room, with wonderful high ceilings and large windows, with it's own beautiful bar, just outside the room. We were served a buffet of baked stuff sole, ravioli's, pork medallions, roasted potatoes, and vegetable medley. Every single thing was delicious! Nice and... More

It was our 42 year wedding anniversary. We had heard a lot of good about Val's restaurant and we don't live 1 miles from it, so now there was an opportunity to visit the place. You cann't book a table only if you are 8 or more persons. While we were waiting for a table, we ordered two cocktails as... More

Hubby, his sister and brother-in-law and myself arrived for an early dinner on a weekday. We were greeted, seated, water came without asking, crackers and warm spread came quickly. We ordered shrimp with sea scallops over pasta, fried seafood platter, salmon and a huge bowl of stewed seafood. We chatted for a short time and all four meals came out... More

I have to say I just came in for lunch, we got waters, soon they had delicious crackers and warm dip for the table. Free bread without asking us. The eggplant parm and scallop carbonara we ordered came with a large salad that we split. Service was quick with the additional beers we ordered. The food was out of this... More

Val's is family friendly and has an extensive menu, mostly Greek-Italian but they have very good seafood as well. In our three plus years of living in Holden, we visit Val's fairly regularly and we've only had one bad experience. Food was great on our most recent visit. Highly recommend the mussels as a starter. Very busy with the senior... More
