Restaurant Revisited: Valley View

As of February 2012:

Three months later, new General Manager Kelly says the freshness of the new dining room has not waned for her.

Kelly now holds employee meetings to train staff on food safety and proper customer service. She and Kim also meet weekly with their newly hired chef, Matt, to go over any kitchen issues.

Chef Matt has become Kim’s right-hand man. He’s helping to bring in more fresh ideas, and today there are very few frozen items on the menu. Kelly is excited for Chef Matt’s new menu to roll out — she can’t wait to see customers’ reactions.

Ann has a hard time staying away. “I guess having a business for almost 30 years and having all the decisions to make is hard to walk away from.” says Kelly.

“To see how Restaurant: Impossible made a tribute to my brother still puts tears in my eyes,” Kelly says. “I know that he would love it. I know I do!” She wants to take the restaurant to new heights and thanks Robert Irvine for giving them a fresh start.

Update: Sadly, Ann decided she could no longer invest any more of her own money into the restaurant and on March 8, Valley View closed its doors for good.

    • PPPPPPPP says:

      this restaurant was located in Lancaster County, the area known as the Buck. It had been there for years, I am from Lancaster. It is probably about 15 miles south of Lancaster on 272 South

        There are a lot more people than just Amish living here thank you! If you don't know what you're talking about you shouldn't be commenting!

      It was in former Chef's comment's and alittle from FNET Irvine. You unfortunately have to fish through the entire blog to get anywhere near the answers

    Spammers get lost! You're ruining this board!!

    • Donnakayp says:

      sorry to piggyback on you, guy, but I just joined and haven't figured out how to start a post.

      My thought on these comments (and other places)…I think they need a moderator to kick out the off-topic posts. Isn't it amazing with as big as the Internet is, there's always some rude people. I couldn't even get a decent post to read about Valley View….and no matter how hard we try, it just gets worse. I've volunteer to be a moderator, just to kick some of these comments out.

    LOL Reading the comments, it is obvious that most of them have NOTHING whatever to do with the update on this restaurant! Someone else mentioned "bots." What is the purpose for these "bots" to make these comments? They are also on all of the other restaurant updates.

    • mm1970 says:

      They are trying to get you to visit their own blog. If you place the cursor over their username, you can see their own website name, just don't click! You'd think fn would have a spam blocker.

  9. gary says:

    any plans to re-open the restaurant?

  10. Dan B says:

    Food Network: Please, please, please police this blog! The vast majority of the posts are obviously bots and/or spam that have absolutely nothing to do with the original article.
