Party of 9, for lunch. Every one enjoyed their meals, especially those with the Julienne salads and Reuben sandwiches. First, I enjoy this place and we have come on several occasions. I would recommend to all to patronize, but this one dish I disagreed with and want to warn you away from. Its called souvlaki salad on the menu, but... More

All diners very pleased with portions, and taste. Waitress,I believe was Alicia (?) , was very attentive, stopped at table whenever it looked like we might need something. Food came out hot,...

You won't find nouvelle cuisine here, only old school menu favorites. The food is prepared as if they have been serving the same items for fifty years, and they probably have. The dining area is old school too. It has pine paneling and walls covered with decorative items like platters, and Christmas items for the season. The owner and waitresses... More

Recommended by a local, this was an out-of-the-way place that we might not otherwise have noticed. Decorated like your grandmother's living room, this place specializes in comfort foods. The night we dined, they had a pierogi casserole on the specials menu. But most of us were there for their beer battered fish fry. You can get one huge piece (fish... More

I was very happy to find out that the "Ditch" still has a great Fish Fry! My Father absolutely loved his Fish Fry.

I've been going to Water Valley for many years but that's sadly going to stop. It used to be a great place to go but it has slowly been dropping. The last couple visits have been quite disappointing. The prices have increased but the quality has really dropped dramatically. Unfortunately this is a place you should now skip.

I have lived in Atlanta since 1985 and was raised in Eden, New York just 10 minutes away from the Water Valley Inn. WVI offers some of the very best Western New York comfort food. The must haves on the menu are the fish fry and the Beef on "Weck". Plan on getting there early if you are doing a... More

Dinner was delicious and the desert yummy. The liver, onions, and bacon was very good, and my wife's steak was done to perfection. Thanks. We will absolutely return.
