You will drive into a valley and over a creek to a location you may not think would be part of a major city. Spend time walking along the water before or after you enjoy the restaurant. Quality and preparation of menu items are very good. Staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Atmosphere inside is traditional, elegant, quaint, and relaxed.... More

The first time I ate here was to do a food tasting with my (now) husband and in-laws. The next time, we were married here outside on a lovely day in May 2012. The Inn is full of character and I love the fact that it is part of Fairmont Park and open to everyone, which made our wedding even... More

We dined here for the first time last weekend. Having heard so much about it, our expectations could have been too high. I think the surroundings must be lovely in spring & summer, which would add to the experience. I get the charm of antiques and all that, but the interior seemed a little drab & dowdy. The food was...

We had a 4:30 pm reservation for Thanksgiving; 3 adults and 2 children. We arrived a few minutes early and waited and waited until 5:10 pm when they finally had a table for us. While we were patiently waiting the rude host kept telling us to be patient and understanding, that the 2:30 reservation people were very LATE so we... More

Super atmosphere for a holiday. Request to sit in the room with the fireplace. We were seated immediately . Our server Scott was right on it. He was efficient ,professional and welcoming. The hot cider with rum was yummy.Salads were perfect. The buffet had normal TG foods with a flair. The craving selections were very tasty and hot. The side... More

My boyfriend took me here after an afternoon of walking around outside of the art museum. We arrived around 4:30 and were told they were finishing up the lunch crowd and weren't seating for dinner until 5pm. I was starving but not much you can do about that so we sat by the creek and people watched. For dinner we... More

We visited the Valley Green Inn for lunch and once again we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. I had the grilled cheese on challah bread and my husband had the turkey sandwich. The breads were homemade and they roast their own turkey. The service was also great and the place was crowded. The Fairmount Park setting in Autumn... More

We went with 6 adults and 2 18 month olds and everything went great. Huge brunch menu selection and large portions. Service was friendly and efficient and the cost was a good value. It was a beautiful fall day to enjoy the scenery in the park including the ducks in the creek in front of the inn.

The Valley Green Inn is a wonderful throwback to an earlier era of inns and time-gone-by. Tucked away in the shade of the Wissahickon gorge, right next to the creek, the Inn serves a nice blend of casual-American cuisine. After hiking from Chestnut Hill College on the Orange trail, my group of five stopped for lunch on the outside porch/patio.... More

Had brunch there on a Sunday and on a nice day. Parking and traffic in and out was horrendous. There is a place for restaurant parking, once you wait in the traffic, with a valet who just directed you to an open spot if there was one. Because of the popularity of the paths along the creek and the limited... More
