Enjoyed a leisure Sunday breakfast. Service was not the quickest, but was competent, knowledgeable & very friendly. The menu was a bit overwhelming with selections however. Making a decision took a little time for us first-timers. The food was good. Overall a good experience. And this restaurant is easy to get into and out of with walkers & wheelchairs.

Mid- morning breakfast with my wife and granddaughters (2). Took a chance on one of my favs of biscuits and gravy. Whoops! Store bought muffins slathered in some goop and a diced sausage patty on top. Opted out of the scrambled eggs for two over easy on the side. The eggs saved the day! Kids enjoyed French toast and pancakes... More

Went there with a friend for lunch, hardly any customers in there. Took quite awhile for the waitress to bring the menus, then even longer for her to come back to get our orders. It took them over half an hour to cook 2 burgers. The burgers were very dry, the fries very greasy. The place smelled like old grease.... More

I've been here twice, once with my family and once with for business. Both times I was happy with the service and the food. Good atmosphere for family and for casual business meeting.

Stopped for an early morning breakfast before hitting the road. No wait for a table, lots of unique breakfast options. Pleasant and attentive server, but not overbearing.

My wife and I have eaten at the Valley Diner several times, and we are impressed by the friendliness of the service, the high quality of the food, the generous servings, and the fun atmosphere! Make sure you get at least one pancake!

OMG. The web site menu looks so good... The actual food is terrible. Breakfast, waffles with an old dark strawberry topping, not even juicy... Quarter size whip cream that dissolved when fork hit it! Eggs Benedict was awful, both guests eggs were hard! Not over easy. Dry!

Went to this cute diner for dinner tonight and had great service. Even better, you can get breakfast anytime! Our waitress was super friendly, the food came out fast and the prices were good.

Had a super breakfast and great server but the place needs to be cleaner. Table was less than clean and the whole ambiance was a bit dirty.
