We arrived at Val's at 7:15 PM on Sunday evening. We had been on the road for 11 hours when we walked in the door. We were greeted with great smiles and efficient staff. All day long my husband and I had lived in anticipation of a wonderful meal at Val's. We have never been disappointed with a meal at... More

Excellent meal. Great service. Great atmosphere. Took my wife here for her birthday. Very short wait for a Sat. night, my wife had the lazy man's lobster, I had the fried shrimp. Both meals were hot and delicious. Dinner music was delightful, not to loud that you couldn't talk, but loud enough to here, the gentleman was very good. Great... More

We visited Vals in February. We were just driving by and saw the cars in the parking lot and decided it's going to be a good place to eat. The menu is extensive in the food choices were great. Reasonably priced great service and wonderful desserts we would definitely return

The chefs at Val's provide some of the most interesting seafood plates. On Valentine's Day, for lunch one special was a piece of stuffed filet of sole, with pan fried scallops, and a stuffed shrimp served over mashed potatoes with broccolini and a light sauce. Everything blended well together, but retained their individual flavor. The scallops were some of the... More

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
