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.

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
