It was our last night in Ogunquit, Me. We were looking to try someplace new for dinner. Our hotel Georges Grant provided a menu guide in each room. The menu at the Village Inn looked very interesting so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The ambiance, service and most of all the food were first rate. I had a Hanger Steak on a bed of romaine lettuce that had been chared on the grill, covered in croutons, parmasian chips and a drizzle of dressing. Sort of a deconstructed Caesar salad. Also was a large wedge of some toasted bread. It was all delicious and I cleaned my plate. My wife had scallops which she also wolfed down. Very, very good food. The Inn is old and quaint. Just what you'd expect and want. The server was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. All in all will be back next time we visit Ogunquit.

This is our first dining spot when we come on vacation. We know it will start our vacation off on the correct note. The food is always delicious and the pricing is very good for the quality of the meal. The wine list is great and well priced. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation because this place is usually crowded.

Our waiter, Walker, was excellent. The right amount of attentiveness without being too much. Brought us everything we needed before we could ask for it. Shrimp cocktail was generous and cold. Entrees were good--not spectacular, but the service and the ambiance elevated the whole experience.

Ended up finding a nice high top in the bar area. The staff were all very nice except for the bartender who seemed absolutely bothered by our existence. Worst attitude for someone in the job - and I heard he’s one of the owners. But for the quality of the food and the gracious attitudes of everyone else on staff, I would not return.

Third visit here and it was just as good as always. Service is attentive, restaurant is comfortable and the food is absolutely delicious. The best part of this restaurant is you get a better quality meal than many Ogunquit restaurants at a more reasonable price. We love this place!

We have been coming here for three years and were very disappointed. Our server was preoccupied by other “local” tables and seemed standoffish with us. My friend ordered a glass of Zinfandel and got white Zinfandel which she decided she would drink. When ordering her second glass she inquired as to a red Zin, the waiter wasn’t sure and reluctantly checked and that was fine... Our Salmon which was to come on a bed of spinach had two small leaves... the Pasta with Libster and Mushrooms had two mushrooms and sauce was watery. This was an evening special. Very disappointing experience, guess we’ll stick to after dinner drinks here

Service was attentive. Lobster Bisque was salty, and I love salt, but I love the flavor of lobster more. Lobster pasta special had generous amount of lobster, but very bland sauce on it. My husband said his scallop dish was good, but serving was on the smaller side. It was a ‘good’ meal overall, with a very good atmosphere.

After reading the streetside menu, my wife and I decided the place looked intriguing. We started off with the escargot which were cooked perfectly in a garlic/wine sauce, I ordered the tournedos of beef au poivre and my wife had the rack of lamb.The tournedos were delicious while my wife declared the rack of lamb was the best she ever had! Topped everything off with the creme brule and an irish coffee. One of the best dining experiences we've ever had!

My wife and I vacation twice a year in the Ogunquit area and we always make it a point to dine at the OVI, the food choices on the menu are excellent along with the price value. Service is impeccable as the owner is always present. A great lounge to have a cocktail before or after dinner. One of our favorites you will not be disappointed.

The prices were very good especially for a resort town. Our server, Marcia, was very personable and right on top of things. I had the best scallops wrapped in bacon! My husband loved his baked stuffed haddock with lobster sauce. The bartender made a great white sangria also. When I made the reservation I mentioned that it was our anniversary but no mention was made which disappointed me a bit. We will definitely be back.

Really loved our meal here! Great Brie appetizer, and all entrees were delicious (salmon, lobster special, and mushroom/pasta dish). Looks a bit old fashioned (it's an inn, so that should have clued us in!) so we weren't quite sure what to expect but it was terrific. Service was wonderful, too and cost was very reasonable. We'll be back!
