Diner Reviews
  • "The Sunday Brunch was a good alternative to the overpriced buffets brunches at other restaurants / Hotels in Birmingham. "

  • "I really enjoyed my waitress on my visit. We arrived around 9pm so it ws pretty laid back without a lot of noise. I will say that the food was just 'ok'. The spiniach dip wsa one of the worst I have had in a while. Overall the atmosphere was good, food not so much. "

  • "We had reservations and did not have to wait to be seated. I chose this restaurant because it has many gluten-free options, including pizza, as well has accepting reservations! Some of us had drinks from the bar and they were awesome! Service was friendly and good as well. I think the staff here is their strength. The food was good, but we left feeling like we over ate. Yes, we did have dessert... The carrot cake could serve 4 people easily, but we didn't know that and ordered more! Maybe it was our fault. The dinners had "heavy" sides like mac-n-cheese, scallop potatoes--comfort food. I had veggies, so my stomach was fine. I guess restraint might be nice if eating here. Valet parking is available and they too did a fine job."

  • "This was my first trip to the Village Tavern. We arrived a little early and had a drink in the bar. The Bar Staff was great and provided great service. The hostesses were friendly and welcoming. Our waiter, Bo, was excellent and provided great suggestions and service throughout our meal. The restaurant was noisy, but this was a prom night, and that might have contributed to the noise level. Overall, it was a good dining experience."

  • "This was a great find close to our hotel. We ordered the crab cakes (no filler) and tilapia- both dishes were excellent. The most notable thing of the evening was our waiter, AJ. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and his suggestions were really appreciated. We will definitely return."

  • "I am a frequent diner at Village Tavern and consider it a reliable mid range restaurant. Fresh ingredients, good service-not a high end option- but steady. My last visit our fish was undercooked, they replaced the entree quickly and comped the meal."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Service was the main positive. Wines and beers were just right in taste and price for a nice restaurant. Food came out in good time and the portions were plentiful. Menu was somewhat long, but had a nice variety. We were just in the back/west side of the dining area, so the very loud noise in the bar area did not bother us. We will certainly choose the Village Tavern again."

  • "We love VT for dinner, special occasions, happy hour with live music, etc. We tried our their brunch and we very disappointed. The coffee was so weak it looked like tea. The waffle I got didn't taste any different than a waffle I'd make at home. I will still go to VT for lunch and dinner, but would not recommend for breakfast/brunch."

  • "This was my first visit to the Village Tavern. Four of us went there to celebrate a birthday. The waiter was outstanding. He was attentive but overbearing, and explained all the menu items well. We were seated next to a large table of teenagers from a local high school who were dining before a "Sadie Hawkins Day" dance. They were probably the best behaved, most attractive group of young people that I have been around. The atmosphere that allowed youth and oldsters to enjoy themselves in one place is to be complimented. We will be back to the Village Tavern many times in the future"

  • "We decided to go to Village Tavern at the last minute, primarily because I remembered I could get a table through OpenTable! Used a gift card I received for the holidays and took two children 10 and under. Great depth of menu and (at least one) local craft beer on tap."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "This was my first time dining at Village Tavern. I went during the lunch hour and was very pleased the visit. The chicken quesadillas were great! I ordered the salmon with roasted vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. My only gripe was that my salmon did not have any seasoning on it. I think Village Tavern should revamp their way of cooking the salmon. My boyfriend ordered the prime rib and it was fantastic!!! I would visit this restaurant again and suggest for my friends and family to attend as well."
