Something for everyone
Our group needed vegetarian and a gluten free selections and the menu did not disappoint! We will be back!

EAT HERE, trust me on this....
I have to admit that I didn't have high hopes for this place when my wife first mentioned it. Boy was I wrong! It's rare you find a restaurant that is priced right AND the food is delicious, but I'd have to say this is as close as you can get. It is definitely the most hidden restaurant I have ever been to, but very much worth the hunt. I had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly the way I asked. I also tried the wrapped scallops and they too were great. The green beans and rice were spot on. I could have easily made a meal from the green beans alone. Wife had the shrimp and grits, which were also delicious. This place could charge much more for what you get here. I would put this meal up against Del Frisco's any day of the week. Needless t

Great Sunday Brunch
Went for brunch for first time. Asked for my omelet cooked easy rather than hard and they cooked it perfectly! Hashbrowns were delicious as well. Service was good. God very crowded and energetic by the time I left. Would definitely recommend for Sunday brunch- they have a great menu!

We loved being at this restaurant.
We loved being at this restaurant.
However, I would be amiss if I did not make a note.
I understand clearing the table, but when someone is in the middle of a conversation, keep walking and come back in a couple of minutes.
this was my husbands birthday and first time out together alone in a very long time.
it was more about clearing the table and we began to feel like we needed to leave.
it was not the waitress but the bus boys...they even removed my hsbands roll that was still in the basket!!

Our bartender was wonderful
Our bartender was wonderful and very helpful. Our server was not very patient. He wanted our order on his time not ours.

Great hidden food place. Typical
Great hidden food place. Typical American fare, but it's done well. Service was a bit slow around lunch time, but they were packed! Bacon wrapped scallops were a fantastic appetizer! They list Maryland-style crab cakes. I'm from Maryland. I asked if they were fried or broiled, they said they were pan fried. They were good for not being in Maryland, but if you're a Marylander, I'd pass on this. Overall, I'd give it another chance.

Hidden but worth the hunt to find
I can't believe that I've been in Charlotte all these years and have just recently found this place. It seems that the locals wanted to keep this a secret for fear of something changing. Have eaten here several times and let me tell you, I would compare this food to an upscale place like Flemmings, without the price, any day of the week.

Great casual place
Always enjoy lunches or dinners here. Service is very good and food wishes are taken care of by the chef. Good variety and well presented. Always fun to take out of town guests.

Go for the food and service
Took my wife here for her birthday. Our server, Alex, was very helpful and attentive. We appreciated her wine suggestions and knowledge of the menu. The 10 spice salmon was excellent, I recommend it. My wife really enjoyed the filet marsala. The chocolate torte was the perfect end to our meal. However, the noise level was very high and made conversation difficult. I wouldn't consider this a romantic dining spot. They also do a killer brunch on Sunday's/

We took our 3-yr old to a brunch with friends, and he was easily occupied for an hr and 1/2 - wait staff was kind and curteous to both him and us, which makes us want to go back. We felt it was the right balance between kid-friendly and not rushed; we'd happily go back again.

Love this place
My friends know not to ask me to pick the place for dinner because I'm always going to pick Village Tavern. The food is great, the wait staff is amazing, and the prices are incredible!

We went to the Village Tavern in Southpark on Mother's Day. We have been here several times before and like the food very much. This time, due to the volume of the diners, the service suffered a bit. Both the dining room and outside patio were busy. Our server was very nice and took our drink order first. We then ordered our starter and entrees. We ordered the Cowboy Chips as a starter and they never came out until our entrees have already arrived. The server and the manager both apoligized to us and provided desert on the house. All said, we still enjoyed our dinner and would visit the Village Tavern again.

My family goes to Village Tavern every year for Mother's Day. It wouldn't be the same if we didn't! Best seat is a booth by the window.

Took my family for a night out, service was excellent and food as well. Would tell my friends and neighbors to try it!!

Typical dinner at the Village Tavern. The potato chip appetizer were surprisingly undercooked and not the typical crisp chips that you expect. Fish and Chips were very heavy on the "chips" and the fish portion was smaller than usual, but well prepared and tasty.
Half priced wine night was an unexpected treat.
Service was slow considering the number of patrons. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and was able to conduct my business meeting without background noises.
It just seemed I hit an off night at the Village Tavern.

Quality food and experience
Our experience was exceptional. We enjoyed the location of the restaurants associated with the outdoor seating area as it overlooked a moat with various water features. We were greeted cordially and directed to the hostess stand. My wife and daughter both require gluten free food and they were able to supply gluten free menus. In addition, the waitress was knowledgeable about the subject. Our waitress was very accommodating, she aided us in making wine and beer selections as well as ensuring non-alcoholic drinks were refilled without want or being invasive. She recognized the need and brought refills proactively. The food was moderately priced and enjoyed by everyone. I heard no complaints from our party of 8. All in all, a great night out.

We love it here!
We really enjoy the Village Tavern. The food is consistently good and the service is always great. We generally eat inside but on this visit we sat outside. They provided umbrellas to any table that wanted one and on this particular night they had a DJ that played great music, but at a good sound level which did not impact our ability to carry on a conversation. My husband had a filet that was wonderful and cooked properly. I had the salmon which was good. We love the ambiance here.

Worthy of a second look
We always try a restaurant twice prior to making a decision to recommend it and put it on our preferred list. The atmosphere was very nice, in a traditional setting. Food was very good, with a diverse selection of entree's.
It past the first look and we'll be back to give it a second look.

A quick bite..
Food is good. Service is great. Staff is friendly. Great outdoor dining space. We eat here fairly often and always enjoy it.

Quality at moderate price.
My family dine at Village Tavern a few times a month. Everything that we order is always very good, sometimes excellent--especially the prime rib. There is nothing trendy about this place. Trendy can be fun, but I enjoy traditional ambiance and menu; this is what VIllage Tavern offers.

Fantastic food and service.
Fantastic food and service. Always enjoy the Sunday Brunch menu. Some of us chose omelets, another shrimp and grits, another crabcake and fries. All were satisfied and impressed!

Better than expected
My wife and I met there and went back on anniversary. Food was amazing and the staff was great. Place has been renovated however we say outside.

We've been fans of the VT since the first Winston-Salem location. The Charlotte location was always a great place, as well, but the recent updates to both the restaurant and the menu have made it a new favorite. The Ahi Tuna Sliders, the Shrimp Tacos, and anything involving pimento cheese are great new additions, while old favorites, like the crab dip appetizer are still worth a visit, just by themselves. Nice work, VT.

A great find for a tough critic
Hidden away in an office building area known only to locals this restaurant recently reopened after a renovation.
Very broad menu, even a great kids menu. No one in your party will leave hungry, and the fussiest members will be perfectly accommodated.
Loved it. Will make a point to go back on my next trip to Charlotte

Tried and True
Ahh, the ever constant Village Tavern! Interesting new menu items. Crab cakes always wonderful.

Love the new renovations!
Love the new renovations! Open, spacious, and inviting. We went for mid-week dinner and had sandwiches. The crispy chicken sandwich was excellent. I was worried it would be messy and difficult to handle due to its thickness. However, I cut it in half and the sandwich stayed together. The slaw and sauce made it divine! A new favorite on the menu. Service, as always, was exceptional. Village Tavern never disappoints.

We had a longer wait then expected. Once we were seated, the manger brought a free crab dip and apologized for our wait. Great attention to service. Food is always hot and delicious.
