Great Place to relax
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is great and service is excellent. Our favorite waiter is Ernest. My wife and I feel right at home when we get Ernest as our waiter. If you are looking for a good place to enjoy good food look no further. I highly recommend you check Village Tavern out.

Go To Place in WS
My wife and I have been dining at Village Tavern (both locations) since college and continue to make it our go to spot for good food and service when we want to eat out. We've eaten almost all of the menu at this point and have not had a bad meal due quality of food or the service level, only because we just didn't like it for personal tastes and that isn't the establishment's fault.

We had only eaten lunch at Village Tavern lately so we decided to go for dinner. It was great. We both ordered the Prime Rib (Rare) and it was delicious. The meal came with mashed potatoes, which I rarely order but they were good. The server we had was also very good. It's a great place to eat in Winston-Salem.

delicious food and friendly service
We continue to enjoy coming to VT. It's a reliable place for a way to unwind after work, have a good dinner, etc. We always appreciate the servers and their dedication to making the experience comfortable and enjoyable. We have noted the kitchen has been a little slower the last couple times. One night I know it was the ticket printer or something like that (it happens), but I don't know the reason for the other time or two. While we do not personally mind and roll with the punches, we do feel bad for the servers that have to manage it on the customers' side. They get the brunt of it, but we've always overheard them managing it professionally. I say all this to give kudos to the staff that do their best to help their diners.

Will go there again!

A Winston-Salem Staple
The 'Tavern' is one of my favorite haunts in W-S and I think it's safe to say the same for many W-S residents. The menu has variety, the food is always cooked perfectly, and the portions are generous. Our waiter was especially knowledgeable and said he could 'make magic happen' in the kitchen if we needed to change things up with any menu item. The food was served in a timely manner and that always makes for a great meal. I would heartily recommend VT to anyone who enjoys a great dining experience.

Reliable, good food and atmosphere
When we have friends visiting in town the Village Tavern is always a top choice for dining. Reasonable prices, fun atmosphere, good service and a wide variety of choices that are reliably good.

Reasonably Priced Steaks
We were searching for a place to take friends out for a steak dinner. The Village Tavern offers steaks in the $23 to $29 range. We started with the crab dip, 2 of us ordered 8 ounce filets which were very good, 1 ordered tuna, and 1 ordered grouper (and raved about it). 1 of us had a glass of wine and 1 of us had a mixed drink. One of us ordered an additional side vegetable. We all had decaf coffee and we shared one piece of carrot cake (excellent). The bill was $200 (with tip). So, this is not an inexpensive place to have dinner, but it is of reliable and consistent quality. The noise level is pretty high. The lighting is nicely dim.

Great place to dine. We go
Great place to dine. We go here for almost all special occasions and are never disappointed. There are so many great choices on the menu, but we usually end up getting the prime rib, which is delicious. The service is always excellent and we always look forward to returning.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love eating here. The food is always of excellent quality, service is attentive and friendly. Everything is clean and well cared for. Management and staff are on their toes at all times.
Nothing terribly fancy, but always done well. Prices are very good too. The coco-Rita is fantastic, and their Caesar salad is the best I've had.
They do stay busy, so get a reservation, and don't expect a quiet meal.
Overall, it's a fantastic place to eat
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is probably our 10th time visiting here. We have never had any issues with the food. We have had just one bad service experience. Our most recent trip was fantastic. The service could not have been better and the food was excellent. Their mixed drinks are great and they have a good selection of beer on tap. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a nice dining experience with more of a local scene.

We celebrated a birthday for a loved one. We had a great time and the price was worth every penny. The experience was priceless!!

Dinner for four on Saturday night
Went on Labor Day weekend Saturday. Very glad we made reservation, were seated on time. Waiter was friendly and informative. Food arrived quickly, and was super - well prepared, well spiced, great taste; a thanks to the kitchen on a busy night. This restaurant is noisy, so knowing that, in the reservation I asked for a quieter location, and they found one, in the corner in the back room. This made all the difference in the world to us, a thanks to the host staff.

Good food, cooling system attention
Food was good as usual. Server was sweating pretty bad made us uncomfortable. Ceiling vents were dripping on my table and person.

Middle of the road
I had not dined at The Tavern for at least two years but thought it would be adequate for the interview of a prospective employee. We had no problem with the reservation and the server (James) was top notch. He knew when to approach the table and when to stay busy elsewhere. The tables were too close together. When the person behind my dinner mate wanted to leave, they had to ask my dinner mate to get up so that person could slide their chair away from the table; rather awkward and interruptive. The food was average, the service great. Just nothing to bring me back any sooner than the last time.

A short but enjoyable visit
My experience with VT was limited on this visit as my lunch-date did not show. Personal disappointments aside, the VT made the wait far more bearable. I can speak with confidence that the flash-fried calamari is something I would have again; the Thai sauce had a lingering hint of spiciness and a sweetness that mostly faded with each bite, leaving the pallet only with the saltiness of the calamari itself. by the time I was done with the calamari I was glad to have had my water refilled a couple times. My biggest compliments go to my server who was very patient with me as I occupied a table that could comfortably have sat four. I look forward to getting back to see if the rest of the menu is a good as the appetizers.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, we go to the tavern in Alpharetta a lot, I was excited to see the same in Winston Salem - a pleasant surprise. Food was great, service as well, always a good experience!

I've been going to the village tavern for years and the food never disappoints! Great food and service.

GREAT DINNER IN WINSTON-SALEM
We stopped in Winston-Salem on our way to western NC.. This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel and was also on Open Table - so we give it a try. We had absolutely delicious shrimp and grits - as good as I have ever eaten. It turned out to be half price wine night, so we tried a lovely pinot noir which was great with the shrimp. My husband capped off the meal with a carrot cake that he is still raving about. Definitely a restaurant I would recommend to friends.

Good service for a popular restaurant; also reasonably quiet. It's a good place to take friends for Sunday brunch.

Large diverse menu. Everything we had was good, which ranged from salmon to steak to hamburger. Went back a second night to watch the game in the bar area.

Great place For Good Food
The Village Tavern at the Hanes Mall is a wonderful alternative to the smaller restaurant in Reynolda Village. Good food, great service and nice vibe. My freshman college loves to go there when we are visiting.

Caters to the individual
We have been to The Tavern twice now for our visits to Wake Forest University. Each time the service has been outstanding. This time Brittany helped me create a salmon sandwich which was not blackened (I do not care for spicy foods), although it comes that way on the menu. The spinach salad was delicious and well presented, as was my husband's wedge salad. After we finished our meal, my husband said that The Tavern is our new favorite restaurant in the south!

A favorite for meeting friends
We had a wonderful waiter . crab cakes delicious. Also love their Bar B Q chicken pizza. We usually end meal with "the Small Sundae"

My husband and I live in West Virginia, and we celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary at Village Tavern. I have eaten here multiple times, when in town, for lunch and dinner. I have NEVER had a meal that I didn't love. I have ALWAYS had EXCELLENT service, and I LOVE the ambience!! I am 55 years old, and have eaten many places and I believe that this restaurant rates in my all time top five favorites!! One would be remiss to not dine here if in town!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time I've eaten at the Village Tavern, I've had a great experience. Everyone at the table enjoys their food. there are so many choices on the menu and specials.

The food and service were great. As much as we enjoy Village Tavern, we always have to expect that it will be noisy and usually crowded.

HUSBAND PICKED VILLAGE TAVERN AS SPOT TO CELEBRATE HIS BIRTHDAY. GREAT AMBIENCE BUT A LITTLE
TOO LOUD FOR TABLE CONVERSATION. VERY WIDE VARIETY OF MENU ITEMS TO CHOOSE FROM; IF YOU
CANNOT FIND SOME YOU LIKE HERE, THERE HAS GOT TO BE SOMETHING WRONG. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD,
SERVER WAS VERY ATTENTIVE. EVEN CELEBRATED WITH US WITH CHEESECAKE AND TOOK PICTURES.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Never unhappy at VT:)
We frequent both locations of the Village Tavern in Winston-Salem, dining there at least twice a month, and are always pleased. One small hiccup on this visit, the soup of the day, chicken vegetable, which is normally one of our favorites, was too thick, and the labor was not the same. The waitress readily agreed that it appeared different than usual, and removed it and took it off the bill, no problem.Then the manager stopped by to say he had checked with the chef, and he had "experimented "a bit with the recipe, and it wasn't successful. Our meals and our wine were superb, as was desert. We'll be back soon!

This restaurant is a staple
This restaurant is a staple for Winston Salem. Definitely one of my favorite places to go, and it is a great to bring family and friends who aren't familiar with the area. I would highly recommend making a reservation in advance instead of walking in, especially on a Friday or Saturday night.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food! Great for large groups!
Simply put, fantastic food and service! The place was packed, and service was still impeccable! Will definitely come back!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I have enjoyed the V.T. in W.S. for years. Half price wine night on Wednesdays makes this restaurant a fun place to celebrate “hump day”. Great steaks and specialty dishes
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food as usual. Our waitress Lurae was nice and attentive especially due to how busy this place is durong lunch. My only beef was how long our food took to arrive. I know its busy and their was a party of like 20 in the restaurant but 45 minutes after ordering iscrazy. But I do understand and I still love this place.

Village Tavern is on the top
Village Tavern is on the top of the list of our favorite restaurants, and we have never been disappointed. From the Wait time, the hostesses, the waiters/waitresses, the food and desserts, all have excellence written on them. Our favorite waiter is Ernest. He was unable to serve our table on our last visit, but still stopped by to say hi to my family. We still had an excellent waitress, her name is Renee. All I can say is this place is amazing in all aspects! Highly recommended!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great as always
Always great food and service. When friends ask what is good I say "All of it!".
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We like to dine here on weeknights and the occasional Sunday lunch/brunch. We have our menu favorites, but whenever we go out on a limb and order something different, we typically like those selections as well. Meaning, it's just an all-around reliable place to go, and the variety should satisfy most anyone in a group. Service is always friendly and accommodating as well.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of our favorites
Whenever we are in Winston Salem, the Village Tavern is always at the top of our list of great places for dinner. We stop by as often as we can and have never been disappointed. The food is always very good and the service is outstanding. It's always a feel good atmosphere and makes for an enjoyable dinner and outing.

Good food and service while crowded
Being crowded slighly reduced quality of food and service.

Had a nice meal for family congregating for the holidays. Cool enough for college kids and parents alike.

We travel about 90 miles for a night out including our dinner at Village Tavern. Fantastic meal and fantastic people. Especially enjoyed the manager taking our hint on one item. We'll be back. Possible one of the best prime ribs I have ever had. Perfect.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice dinner to celebrate 87th birthday for uncle. Service was attentive and meals were all prepared as ordered and quite good. We will definitely go again and recommend to others.
