My husband and I moved away from the area 11 years ago and only make it back home a few times a year. Given the opportunity to leave the kids with Grandma and Grandpa, we slipped out to check out downtown kid-free. Everyone insisted we check out Valley Kitchen and Bar and it did not disappoint.

Another excellent Valparaiso restaurant. Food is farm to table and always great. It's another mid to fine dining so kids can be there but I don't see many there.

This is a restaurant that prides itself on it's farm to table approach. The menu is small, but the dishes are wonderful. Everything is fresh and cooked to order. I highly recommend the bar overlooking the kitchen.

I stopped in for a light meal while on a business trip in the area. My hotel was not far away so it was very convenient. The food was good as was the wine and my server was great! Would definitely go back.

Very nice food. All dishes are made with fresh locally grown ingredients. They do not freeze or heat up and reuse anything. It is rather expensive though. Their kids meals are reasonably priced and great. They have amazing chicken strips.

For my birthday dinner I wanted to try someplace new - so glad I chose Valley Kitchen & Bar!! Their menu changes seasonally so that you get a great farm to fork meal and they don't disappoint. If you're a beer drinker they offer 1/2 price drafts on Thursday. Go enjoy and great meal and some great beer!

Thank Teresa C
