    My husband and I have been dining here for years. The food is always exceptional and until tonight the service had always been just as exceptional. The wait staff and management were on top of the poor service we received from a new employee. Hopefully the new hire will receive the training that they desperately need in order to maintain the high quality we have always known and experienced here.

    We have eaten here with friends for both lunch and dinner over time and have never been disappointed. The menu is varied, the ambience outstanding (at least to us) and the service has been superb. Well trained, courteous and educated wait staff make all the difference. The bar is well appointed and welcoming with personable and helpful staff.

    My boyfriend and I went to Village Tavern for a nice dinner on a Friday night. After reading the reviews I decided to make a reservation and it was definitely necessary. Without, we probably would have waited upwards of 45 minutes to an hour. But let me tell you, that wait DEFINITELY would have been worth it. The service was phenomenal, the food was stellar, and the environment was perfect. It was a perfect place for a date night, it would be perfect for family dinner, a business lunch, or Sunday brunch. Upon recommendation of the reviews I had the pimento cheese BLT and it was out of this world. For dessert I had the warm butter cake to go and they definitely didn't skimp on the toppings. Overall, Village Tavern is definitely a must go!

    The ham & cheese omelet was excellent, the tavern potatoes were scrumptious, the fruit fresh and sweet, and the muffin moist, What more could you ask for? You could ask for a juicy hamburger! The hamburger was so dry and over cooked (it was ordered medium not well, well done) and it was not edible. The service was very great. The server was attentive but not overwhelming. We have eaten at Village Tavern several times and this is the first time I can say we walked away dissatisfied.

    We went there for dinner with friends. Large menu and each of our entrees was great. Served at the right temperature and beautifully presented. I had the roast beef and hardly needed a knife to cut. Wonderful flavor. Service was smooth and well practiced. Comfortable seating with a feeling of privacy.

    Places with the word Tavern in the name can be all over the map. This is a nicely decorated - subdued restaurant with a huge fireplace in the middle of the dining room. First time there and we had brunch. The good - the French toast and the home made hash browns were fabulous. The "Sugared Bacon" was good bacon - though not much hint of the brown sugar made it to the table. The Huevos Rancheros are to be avoided. An egg omelet wrapped in a tortilla with a little cheese and sour cream on top. However, the French toast and potatoes will get us to try again.

    Recently visited Village Tavern and casually mentioned it was a friends birthday, our waitress was awesome and brought out a small dessert with candle at the end of the evening. What a great touch. I am not sure what was better, the great service, half price wine on Wednesdays, or the wonderful glazed salmon. I wish I remembered our waitresses name she was great.

    We were a little early but seated when we arrived with a friendly welcome and personally walked to our table by a hostess. Server arrived soon after seating and took drink orders and informed our group of the evening menu specials. Food ordered from the regular menu and special of the evening and all guests were pleased with their orders and taste.

    I have been a fairly regular customer for special brunches. The tavern has always been my go to place for pleasant surroundings and good food. However on our last visit it was apparent that the kitchen needs to step up it serving standards. Similar plates were served with various portion sizes and the meals were delivered luke warm at best. With the kitchen so near there is no excuse for this oversight. I would try them again but they will no longer be my go to spot.

    My husband and I were looking forward to a romantic dinner. Even though we made a reservation for 2, we were seated in a very small booth near large parties who were noisy and so demanding of our waiter, we felt ignored. He did his best, but was very frantic. Our food was spot on, yet our waiter kept blaming the kitchen for his woes. Our food was delicious and well timed.

The inside was completely full, however, with an hour wait. Nevertheless, our service was great and the food was prepared perfectly. This restaurant deserves its reputation and the business it has.
