Food was the worst and portions were very small. We had to beg for bread and refills on any drinks including water, and then only got one . Service was ridiculous !!!!! We had to flag down a waitress who was not ours to ask for plates for our appetizers . Our waiter was no where in sight most of... More

We went to Valkin with our extended family. The outside of the restaurant reminded me the supper clubs of the Midwest, so I wasn’t thrown by the somewhat house-like appearance of the place, but rather liked it. And the dark, homey (I believe dark wood) interior was also appreciated. There was even what appeared to be an Elks meeting going... More

Enjoyed the tiki bar style exterior atmosphere in the summer. It makes for a fun evening close to home. We haven't eaten a meal inside during other seasons yet

We stopped in a 6 o'clock and had a glass of wine waiting for dinner. The food was excellent. New items were great. Out by 7, but that was us, we were not rushed. The weather was bad. One problem - our dinner was out before the salads.New Years eve problem. Mike

We were there for a party on 1/5. I hadn't eaten there in about 20 years. The food was great and the service was outstanding. Will definitely go back again soon. The Tiki Bar is an added bonus in the summer.

I have been to the Valkin on several occasions, all a wonderful experience! The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive and portions were plentiful, with extra to take home. The last time we visited we sat outside at the tiki bar with a beautiful day and they had a great band that night. The drinks were large and the food... More

This restaurant looked to have promise.  As we know looks can be deceiving. We start out by calling to ask about reserving their private room. We are lead to believe they offered the room with no extra charge for the room. When we make the final call they add a room charge. Not a good start. We arrive at 5:00... More

The food was average and expensive. We basically had sandwiches, an appetizer and 4 drinks and the cost was over 100 dollars. As my son was finishing his second drink he found 2 flies at the bottom! When we showed the server she said, "oh we get barflies sometimes". Yuck. My dinner was tasty but lukewarm when it arrived. Drive... More
