We had the pastrami sandwich and the Reuben. Both were excellent! Price was reasonable and service was outstanding.

I came in here on a whim, two days in a row. Its an excellent location, has great food, and a wonderful, professional waitstaff. I will definitely be back and would love to share it with those I care about.

Valley Diner has good diner food. They have a good selection and they have daily specials. I try to go at least once a week. The wait staff are courteous and friendly. Always good service. If you are looking for a good diner, Valley is the diner of choice.

...I received when I said "and I'll take that medium rare, please" should have been a giveaway because the waitress didn't ask. The patty, when it finally arrived, had been likely hoisted from the McDonald's next door and left to languish under a broken heatlamp while my server disappeared and the three family members argued loudly in Greek by the...

The hostess was not friendly; we weren't even greeted, an older woman just glanced up and grumbled "two?" She led us to a table way in the back. We waited a few minutes for the waitress, who was nice, but seemed very rushed. She was shouting to her tables from afar and seemed like she had too much to handle.... More

We tried to talk with the manager and they gave us a... More

Will make sure next time I don't ask for chicken tenders appetizer!They give you 4 small pieces.. And it is pricey... Waitress was OK, not so pleasant... We had hamburger that came with the fries... It was Ok. Next time I will think twice before I go back.

Ordered a pastrami rueben. Okay that it was smothered in sauerkraut and onions, but this smothering hid fact that there was almost No Pastrami. When will restaurants stop skimping on portions and give customers a fair shake.

All I can say is that service was SLOW from the elderly hostess seating us to the young waitress taking our order. Did not bring our coffee until after she brought the meal and we had to remind her to bring it. She disappeared for a while and I had to ask another waiter to bring our check. He was... More

Valley Diner is always good for a family meal or BFF together. Service is always quick & friendly. They have large portions at those wonderful diner prices. You really can`t go wrong. My favorite is their French Dip or Grilled Ham & Cheese sandwich. This past winter we were sat next to Lauren Ambrose you just never know who will... More
