Diner Reviews
  • "I'm from out of town but have eaten here three times in the past month or so while traveling. Great food! Great service! The food is full of flavor, and there is a wide variety. I think the Organic Quinoa & Kale Salad with mango, roasted cherry tomatoes and vinaigrette is the best salad I've ever tasted. And you can't go wrong with the Shrimp & Grits. My kids ordered the flank steak with mashed potatoes and changed their plates. Try the carrot cake... enough for two! Whenever I travel through Winston-Salem, you can bet I'll do at Village Tavern. Be sure to make a reservation through Open Table... this place is popular and gets packed. (Even when busy, I asked had super friendly, great service.)"

  • "Village Tavern was a great find on a business trip in Winston Salem, NC. Service from James was excellent, Sean also helped out as well. Had the fish & chips, it was very good. My wife tried the crab cake sandwich which she also enjoyed a great deal. There was some live music outside, covering some classics with a twist from Clapton, Elvis, Black Crowes, REM, etc... James came over to see if we wanted dessert and mentioned the Key Lime Pie was pretty good. Pretty Good, the lady baking the pies at Village Tavern should go on Shark Tank and start a mail order pie business, even that grump Kevin would fund her. Her name is Willie Mae and she is to pies what Eric Clapton is to guitar playing. Thanks James, Sean and Willie Mae!!!!"

  • "We had a dinner at Village Tavern on Saturday night. Dinner was delicious, except my wife's dinner was sent back cold, and when it was re-heated it had hot and cold spots. Nonetheless, the rest of the evening was wonderful and our waiter, Ernest was the best waiter we have ever had. We have both worked in the restaurant industry for 15+ years and also owned a restaurant here in Kernersville. Ernest W. was a top-notch waiter and was very attentive and personable."

  • "simple dinner - made reservations for early seating - arrived as first guests for dinner and seated by the kitchen and wait staff prep area - and the door to the outside patio. Loud staff and door to patio gave a constant breeze of outside air. Only 2 of us and probably not the best location to seat the first guests of the evening - plenty of other tables available. I am noticing that using Open Table often gets you put in some odd seating and table locations...? Food was OK, glad I did not wait in line. It is a popular place overall - not sure about food but it will provide a good evening out."

  • "We very much liked our dining experience at this restaurant. I ate the grouper with angel hair pasta, and my husband ate a steak. Both of us took half of our meals in doggie containers with us. We returned the next day for lunch so that we could try some other dishes. We recommend the crab dip and the mushroom and goat cheese pizza. The wine selections (for dinner) were outstanding. Our servers were attentive and wonderful, also. We'll be back next time we're in town."

  • "We had a new server who was eagar to hel but did ot lirsten to two of the 4 people and pick up correrctly on the specifics of their order so they were not correct when they arrived. The two people did not want to tell the waiter that. My own dish was rather greasy. It was also very noisy when trying to have a conversation which was the purpose of being there. We usually like going there but this time it was a disappointment."

  • "Lunch was very good and filling. They offer large portions and great food. The main room seems loud but the Sunroom was fine, the booths are very large and comfortable. The service was a little slow but we arrived at the middle of lunch service and the place was packed. I recomend this for a great lunch. If it is cooler weather the outside terrace looked really nice."

  • "It has been over a year since I visited this restaurant and I love the décor, quality food, friendly (not casual) service. Professionally managed, staffed, and the cooks are top notch. The one downside is the significant increase in menu prices in the last year - I would guess some items are up 25%. Still, if you are looking for a fail-safe dinner to impress, this is a good place to go - definitely a cut above Chili's, Applebees, etc. The trout dinner is impressive and the rib eye steak is spot on. Call ahead has been replaced with OpenTable reservations - a key reason we came back - Village Tavern is ALWAYS busy (speaks to the quality of food and customer service.)"

  • "My family and I went to the Village Tavern on Hanes Mall Blvd to celebrate my anniversary. We made reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. The server was very friendly and had a great personality. Our food was fantastic - hot and delicious. The butter cake for dessert is a must have - perfect way to end the meal. This was not our first time dining at the Village Tavern. Every time we go we are extremely satisfied with the service and the food."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The food was fresh, hot and overall great. I made a reservation well in advance and expected a nice table. Unfortunately we were seated near the entrance to the dining room and the noise level was really loud. We were looking for a nice romantic dinner and achieved our goal with regards to the food but the ambiance was lacking. This is a good spot for great food for a crowd but not so great for romance."

  • "We've been coming to this Village Tavern since it first opened,many years ago. They've always been known for great service and good food at reasonable prices. This evening our server was a trainee. As you can imagine not everything was perfect, but his mentor was wonderful. Don't think he had ever opened a bottle of wine before. Our food took a long time to come out, and was not exactly as we ordered it but we give the guy a break. His attitude was cheerful and I wish him well with his new career. We still enjoyed ourselves but not a normal evening at Village Tavern"

  • "We went for Sunday brunch around 11:15. The food was prepared as ordered and great quality, but it took us almost an hour to receive our food. I had to ask three times for silverware and didn't receive cream or anything to stir the coffee. The server did make sure our coffee stayed full while we waited. We have eaten dinner here several times before and not had this issue. This was our first time for Sunday brunch; may have been a busier than normal day."

  • "We had an 11:15 reservation via OpenTable. We were seated at a reasonable time however an hour afterwords we still didn't have food. At 12:15 I got up on my own and inquired at the hostess station when we would get food. She was surprised by our wait and would send a manager over. The manager took care of the situation and some 70 minutes after our reservation the food arrived. I'm not sure where our order went, but most distressing is that our own server didn't notice we were without food for over an hour. It shows either the service staff doesn't care or that they aren't trained. I shouldn't have had to notify management myself at a more upscale restaurant. This place is only as good as its front line, and that's not good enough."

  • "Village Tavern is a great spot. Their detailed wine list, stone oven for fresh pizzas, the fact that they make 99% of everything fresh on sight all put it over the top in my book. The service is always top notch, but when there is a full crowd at the restaurant it is challenging for the servers to make it around as frequently. If you get a chance to visit (and it's a hot spot) go for it. I would be surprised if you were disappointed. But as with everything, YMMV. :-)"

  • "This is a typical Village Tavern restaurant. They have several locations and all are about the same. Food is good, not exceptional, but ok for this type venue. Service was very attentive and accommodating to special requests. The biggest drawback is that it is loud. This restaurant is always crowded and the noise level is high. Do not expect to have a business conversation, but if you just want a casual environment, Village Tavern is an option."
