Vals offers a diverse menu with both sandwiches and lobster dinners or steaks. The restaurant is very busy on a weekend evening and doesn't take reservations for small parties.

Our party ordered everything from... More

One of our favorites is the Baked Atlantis Platter! You'll have to try her house dressing that is also home made! We've moved from the area and we used to be regulars. We miss it and go... More

Everyone that attended was very happy with their meals. The waitstaff was very courteous, efficient, and nice to work with... More

We ordered the corned beef and cabbage dinner ($17). Even with a steak knife it was hard to cut the corned beef which was a tough fatty poor quality cut of meat.

Val's consistently produces top quality food for a fair price and the variety is expansive. Don't know how she keeps doing it - but glad that she does.
