Got the Seafood casserole with balsamic tomatoes and cheese.....not a bad idea if the haddock was fresh and not overcooked ...... Salad was wet/mushy. Food value based on cost was ok but not great quality.... We have been here several times before and it's been pretty good on average this time disappointing

There were 4 of us in our party. We arrived at 5 on a Wednesday night and were seated promptly but it was starting to get busy. Our waitress promptly brought us drinks and gave us an appropriate amount of time to review the extensive menu. Our meals came out all together and were served piping hot. The service was... More

Val has focused on serving Holden and central MA neighbors and their guests for 20 years and more. Expect wonderful baked haddock, savory lamb kabob and more. From favorite comfort foods to unique entrees, Val and her dedicated staff will make you glad you came. A great place for a family event or a large reception.

We have eaten there several times now and I must say that the food and service staff are Very Good. No matter what you order, it is good. The seafood is as good as or better than the places we eat when we go to the cape. Everything is made there even the ice-cream if you choose to have desert.... More

The food and service at val are very consistent and above average. The drinks are well made and the dining room is usually very clean. The prices are a little high for what they offer but they are still a decent value.
