Gone a few times to see if it improved. It hasn't. Rather cook at home. Food is over salted and they got mad at us because we sent raw chicken parm back.

This was my first visit with a couple of friends for a weekend lunch. I had the Vinny chicken teriyaki wrap, while my companions had a burger and chicken sandwich. All were excellent and served with fries that were fresh & hot. Service was quick and our server was a great guy. He kept all of our drinks topped off... More

How do you make an "off-year reunion" - - it was our 53rd - - a resounding success? You have it at Val's! It started as I was driving into the restaurant an hour in advance of the 6:00pm reception and the parking lot, it was a Saturday, was already full. One of the three young men directing people to...

Val offers a large menu primarily composed of Italian dishes. You can also find dishes such as kebab, pita, and burgers. Their cocktails are NOT overly priced and they have some old fashion ones such as Mint Julep, Side Car. I usually go to Vals when we have a visitors and are too lazy to cook because we know it...

If you want cheap food, then this is the place for you. People flock to this place and I don't understand why. When I go out to eat, I want something that I wouldn't normally make myself and something that makes me want to come back for more. This place doesn't do it for me.

We met friends at Val's. We chose Val's based on reviews in Tripadvisor. We went there in between lunch and dinner service we all selected appertizers . The apps were very large (none of us finished). The food is good compford food that covers many ethic types. Try it if your very hungry and just want to relax and eat.

It will never earn a Michelin star (and doesn't have any pretense about trying to achieve that) but it has a wide range of good quality foods, well prepared, with generous portions, and prompt pleasant service - all at a reasonable price. There is plenty of free parking and handicap access is not a problem. Val, herself, is a joy.

This place surpasses any restaurant we have ever eaten at. We are very particular diners and seek out great food and service. I had a superb haddock special that was out of the ordinary and very fresh. Out of this world. The other dinner, however,was a disappointing veal parm. We weren't going to complain but the owner stopped to ask... More

We go to Val's for birthdays, special events, parties and to meet friends because: 1. there is something for everyone on the menu - good variety, 2.... More
