Great setting in a 166 year old venue set aside the Wissahickon Creek. We went for brunch and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We sat at a quaint corner table and enjoyed the large choice on the brunch menu. I will tell you that it was the best Salmon Benedict I have ever eaten, extremely fresh and tasteful. My husband equally... More

I've gone for drinks, dinner, and brunch. Brunch was quite impressive. They had an array of breads and muffins, velvety carrot soup, and hearty portions.I wish the tea selection was better though. I was somewhat less impressed by the dinner experience, but I would try it again. The inn is quaint and it offers picturesque views of the park. During... More

As you stroll, run, bike or ride a horse on this pathway along the tranquil Wissahickon Creek, under cover of mature trees shading you from summer's heat, you can actually visualize the "Continental Army" marching from Philadelphia to Valley Forge. It here that city dwelling, multi cultural kids and adults come together in this beautiful pastural oasis to enjoy the... More

Several weeks ago, we had lousy strip steaks at Valley Green. I wrote about it here. The owner contacted me. He refunded two full dinners (not just the cost of the steaks) AND sent a gift certificate. We were told there had been a mix up - the w got were meant for lunch. They were so nice I felt... More

My wife and I were at a small event there, honoring some doctors/colleagues. We were in a back room, which was basically an open room. We only had a pre set choice of 3 dishes. Our salads were made up of about 8 pieces of spinach and an orange slice. Very underwhelming. Several at our table got the steak/meat dish... More

Took my niece, from out of town, to her father's favorite Haunt as a kid. Valley Green Inn has been a "go-to" for decades because of it's location, ambiance and (maybe not great but) good food. Not this time. Shared the Caesar Salad, which was large and tasty. The lettuce was huge, barely cut up. Two of us ordered the... More

Our family was getting group photos in the very beautiful Wissahickon Valley Park, and thought it would be a nice end to the evening to have a special dinner at the Valley Green Inn. Our photos ended unexpectedly early, so we thought we would see if we could get in ahead of our reservation, as otherwise we would have an... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback for the Inn. As you know, your reservation was for 7:30 pm and your group showed up at 6:30. We did our best trying to seat you early, but wanted to ensure that another large earlier party and yours weren't sent to the kitchen at the same time. Our sincerest... More

Quiet restaurant near the creek. Good food, but pricey. Nice to walk on the path and see the river after dinner

Went to the Valley Green for Easter dinner. I have know about and gone there for over 30 years. It is located in a beautiful area of Philadelphia and has tons of history. Going there is like going back in time. Unfortunately, the current management and service is extremely poor. The food was good but waiting for our dinner to... More

We made reservations for Easter Brunch, as we have done several previous times. This time did not turn out well at all. Apparently, there was a new chef, and the kitchen experienced a catastrophic failure. Entrees were served at least 1 ½ hours after the order was taken, and this was true throughout the dining room. In addition, upon final... More
