Valley Green Inn

My fiance and I went to Valley Green for the first time for Valentine's Day. They had a great pre-fix menu. A lot of choices for a great price. The wait staff was very attentive. The atmosphere was cozy with a lit fireplace. I would definitely go back again!

I love valley green inn!! My boyfriend took me there on our first date and I loved it! The food, atmosphere and the waitstaff was very friendly. I had the catfish and my boyfriend had the meatloaf and we enjoyed ever taste of it. It was money worth spending! If your looking for some good food, friendly staff in a romantic atmosphere then Valley Green is the place to go!

I've been eating at The Valley Green Inn from time to time over the years. It is a superb restaurant in a historically significant building. Waitstaff are impeccable. A dinner meal during the winter near the hearth is as romantic as it gets. Speaking of the two original rooms, the only problem that can arise is that since they are small with a very low ceiling, if other customers are loud in their conversation, you'll probably be annoyed. But if you are a creative soul, and they're sitting next to you, in order to return to the enjoyment of your evening, it is perfectly workable to - in a quiet voice - ask them to lower theirs. Happy eating. One more thing: Valentine's Day at this restaurant is not recommended: too much money, too many people and service therefore is too slow. Enjoy!

I brought my girlfriend to the Green Valley in for Valentine's day. The price was 65 dollars per person. I must say each of the four courses was supremely disappointing. For my first course I ordered the prawns. Clearly there was not enough effort to devein them or they were of low quality. The prawns had a very strong flavor, so strong that I continued to smell them throughout the rest of the meal. Adding insult to injury they were overcooked. My second course was a lobster-corn chowder. The soup was not terrible but had a green hue leading me to believe that tomalley was the main lobster seasoning. There was almost no meat in the soup and the meat that was in the soup had a texture closer to scallop than lobster. For our main course I ordered the lobster tail and my SO ordered the filet medium rare. We split entres to have a half surf and turf. The lobster tail and filet were both over cooked. The tail had been sitting out too long and was overcooked resulting in a tough partially crispy texture. The filet was blackened and the center might have been considered 'medium' at a low end steak place. The gorgonzola/egg cake the filet came on was over cooked (recurring theme). And the bed of herb rizzoto my lobster came on was (surprise!!) significantly undercooked. Desserts were okay. We were so over the place we ordered them to go. I had a apple springroll with carmel ice cream and the girlfriend has a flourless chocolate tart. I got around to the springroll later after we got home. It tasted a lot like a McDonald's apple pie - which was awesome because I like McDonald's apple pies, but then I remembered I can get two for a dollar from the drive through. Which brings me to the service portion of our evening. It was not good. The courses came out slowly and our server continuously reminded us of how slow the courses were coming out by telling us they'd be out soon. I ultimately felt cheated out of 150 bucks for v-day dinner.

I ride in the Wissahickon all the time, but have only had dinner at Valley Green Inn twice in the last few years, one of the times recently. It's a good place to take a date, or for an anniversary. The menu is creative, the food we had was very good, and the service was pleasant without being too much.
