As this was our first time trying Val's, I didn't know what to expect but was more that surprised. Excellent seafood and value. Boy, did we love the salad served family style with the house dressing in a bottle on the table. There was an overwhelming amount of seafood ordered and everyone loved their meal. My wife, one of the... More

A large varied menu: very good Italian, traditional American fare and the seafood dishes are excellent. Generous portions, we always take some home. Generous glasses of wine, nice selection too. Very good service and friendly staff. Val keeps a close watch on everything to make sure the quality of the food and service is top notch. A great family restaurant.... More

This visit was for a family outing when we visited my 94 year old mother-in-law. They accommodated a large party. The food was very good. The portions were large. The server was very helpful. We all enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is quiet enough to have a conversation. I would go again. The fried whole clams and lobster roll got... More

Vals started out as a shopping center pizza / sandwich shop. About 20 years ago she, Val, moved into a full service restaurant across the street. It is a jewel of our community. Don't let my four stars disuade you from visiting. I reserve five stars for restaurants that are cutting edge gourmet. Val serves classic dishes, Anerican-Italian, in a... More

Had lunch and ordered five different dishes. They were all ok, nothing special but acceptable. Waitress was a little huffy and attempted to clear befoer we were finished. Ok to return. No more all the salad you can eat but great house dressing still good.

Was given a gift certificate and really loved their presentation of food, their nice atmosphere and their flavorful dishes. We had lamb kabobs and a baked seafood dish. Both were excellent. They had a sampler appetizer that I would definitely repeat. I heard people talking about the lasagna, so that will be for my next visit. Real quality food and... More

Went here for a friends birthday party and was pleasantly surprised at how nice the function room was, they have a bar off the room that would make a great place for cocktail hour. Servers were very friendly and efficient. Buffet was served and the toasted ravioli were my favorite. The steak tips seemed a bit soggy but overall the... More

Lots of parking, no need to make a reservation, but get there early! This is a very popular spot with locals and it is easy to see why. The service and food are fantastic. It is a great place to go with friends or family. The menu is extensive and everything we tried was delicious. Enjoy!

Val's has been around for a while but the bar area had a facelift a few years back. Always love to stop in for a drink and an appetizer. My mother in law always loved to go on Sundays for lunch after church. Seems to have an older crowd early in the day/evening. Food has always been good with great... More
