For my birthday dinner I wanted to try someplace new - so glad I chose Valley Kitchen & Bar!! Their menu changes seasonally so that you get a great farm to fork meal and they don't disappoint. If you're a beer drinker they offer 1/2 price drafts on Thursday. Go enjoy and great meal and some great beer!

Very pleasant atmosphere. Easy access with plenty of parking. They have excellent homemade pastas. The dish that everyone talks about is the Vodka Chicken bowtie pasta. It is the best Vodka Chicken I have ever tasted.

The food here is great. They do excellent fried pickles with a high-quality remoulade. I could just eat that. The vegetarian dish of the moment was a stir fry with a good sauce (a little too much sauce, but not a problem).
