Always excellent food and service. Go there often. Enjoy all menu items that have been sampled, even though, impossible to beat there spaghetti and meat sauce. Lovr their rum cake to complete a wonderful meal. Thursday nite, prime rib also excellent.

V's is simply amazing. I had a party for my mom and they were absolutely awesome. Starting with Greg and deciding on our food options to Chris, our attentive server. My mom loved every minute of the party and that was because of V's!

We have gone here for many, many years for Sunday brunch and dinner. We have no complaints on either one and the staff makes you feel like family. We like that the staff remembers you when you come in and knows just want you want.

I was there recently for lunch. I had the buffet and my friend had the Egg Plant Parmesan. I like the buffet because I can have a little of the tasty dishes -- the lasagne and pasta. Their salad dressing is the best and on the buffet it is in abundance.

I haven't been to V's in years and years so I wanted to take my bf there who'd never been. My family loves their frozen spaghetti sauce you get at the store. The meal was alright, the service was good once we finally got greeted. We had to wait 10 mins almost just for the waitress to get our drink... More

Heard about this place from a friend. Went before the Royals game today and enjoyed an Italian Steak sandwich and a grilled chicken and pasta dish. The Italian steak sandwich was fantastic - breaded veal and sauce on their crunchy bread. My husband's grilled chicken meal was wonderfully flavored but wasn't very hearty - he should have ordered lasagna. We... More
