Really great vibe all around. Totally chill spot to kick back with a drink on their lawn rolling right down to the bay while listening to acoustic guitar.
Food was excellent! Sunset on the deck tough to beat! Very strong recommend.

Service was top-notch. Great on-tap beer selection. Although the wine was good, it was a bit pricey by the glass. Tuna dominated the fish specials (was in a few different dishes), which was unfortunate because it did not appeal to us. Wish there were other fresh fish options in there. The steak was overseasoned and our other meals (burgers, wings, quinoa salad, fried cucumber) were good but not outstanding. The major positives are the view, the service, and the beer selection.

We have visited before, and it was a treat to be served again by Vanessa. She made an excellent recommendation to add the blackened shrimp to my salad & allowed us to taste a wine before purchasing a bottle. After dinner we enjoyed some time outside watching the sunset. We will definitely visit again.

Family of 4 adults for dinner on a Sunday evening. We ordered mostly from the Handhelds part of the menu. All of the food was flavorful, proper temperature and well presented. Our server Brian was engaging, knowledgeable, attentive and funny. It was not our first visit and we will continue to return every time we are in the area.

Used open table app to request outdoor table. Restaurant contacted me promptly and asked if we could move reservation 15 minutes to accommodate which we did. Arrived early and checked in. Had a margarita at the bar in back. Drink was so so, Adirondack chairs and ambiance excellent. Ended up getting seated at our original time as a table opened up early. Server was excellent- she was knowledgeable about drinks, menu items and even specials.
The Buffalo wings weren't spicy, but had a nice tangy to them. Tuna bites were good. For dinner, the $14 burger was very good and the seafood Primavera was decent if not as flavorful as I would have liked.
Good beer menu, on tap and in bottles. Manager came to check in on us which is always nice.
Constant breeze on upstairs outdoor deck was nice. Live music downstairs was pleasant and not too loud. Sunset would have been beautiful but covered by clouds. Tables for 2. 4 or more can be set up there.

Food was outstanding. Service was great. Everyone was masked up and tables were properly spaced out. We originally wanted to eat out on the deck but had no problem indoors. Place was clean and music outside was enjoyable. Thanks!

First time here for us and it was a very pleasant dining experience! Food was very good, drinks were amazing, and the service was extremely quick and friendly! Got there just in time for the sunset as well which was a beautiful site to see from our table, there isn’t a bad place to sit in this restaurant. Definitely would come back during our next vacation!

Great evening at The Village Table and Tavern! The specialty cocktails were delicious and did not disappoint. Our table had the rockfish bites (appetizer special), Fish Sandwich, Burger, and Flouder and all were perfectly cooked and beautifully seasoned. Downstairs is a great little tiki bar with live music and all tables overlook the sound. Great place!

What a wonderful experience! With all that’s going on, it’s great to see a restaurant still deliver delicious food and sparkling service. The drinks (especially at the bar) were amazing, and the fish was super-fresh. The oysters were the same. A on awesome place to go while in the Outer Banks for an evening out!
