Food was ok not the worst but just subpar. The manager was not very friendly and made us feel like we weren't good enough to eat in his establishment

Food and service couldn’t have been any better. We had the prime rib and lamb chops, which were perfect.

We love OVI for all of our dining celebrations!
My husband and I celebrated our wedding rehearsal dinner there, 44 years ago this year - 2021.
They never disappoint!

We stayed at the inn and dined, had drinks every evening after our excursions. So quaint and lovely. If you’re looking for modern, the town is not that. If you’re looking for a true step into New England and a cozy place with laughs and friends (you’ll know or meet), this is your spot! I highly recommend to stay or to dine, both if your lucky enough! A very close walking proximity yo Perkins Cove, Marginal Way and many other delightful New England treasures. For us, it was a perfect getaway!!

... after 3+ years of vacationing in Ogunquit with my mother, The Old Village Inn is my go-to restaurant! ... caring friendly staff, great service, and delicious food and desserts! ... and if you're lucky enough, Walker will be your server ... but others are good too.

Thank you for accommodating my gluten intolerance with the rack of lamb, it was scrumptious. My husband had the duck which he raved about. The highlight was listening to Curt Bessette and Jenn Kurtz sing some great tunes. What a treat!

We had a reservation for 715 but did not sit down at our table until after 8 o’clock and did not receive any food at all until 8:45. Our food arrived and looked like it had been reheated or sitting in pots all day

I would have rated it 5* except the ambiance was ruined by the couple that was seated across the aisle from my wife and me. From the moment they were shown to their table, the woman never stopped complaining. First the table; then her date for not providing the evening she deserved; and finally her meal.
She was immature, self centered, self absorbed and ruined the evening for her date, made things difficult for their server and ours, Walker, and sucked the life and ambiance right out of the evening for my wife and me.
We will return there to dine again and just hope she is not in the restaurant.

i ordered a lobster and pasta special. it was supposed to be 1 1/2 lbs of lobster[not even close] and pasta in a cream sauce[i could count the number of pasta on 1 hand. the dish had no taste at all. there were 3 other orders just as bad. Pork snitzell uneatable and 2 other plates that looked like it had more food on the plate after being served because almost no food was eaten. overall i"d say the food was prepared properly but portions were small and the food was not seasoned at all making for a terrible experience. I would never go back to this place again1

The food was great. The prices were very reasonable. You can get anything from a light meal to a lavish feast. I had pork schnitzel topped in a lemon sauce with mushroom and spinach fir $20!!! At the other restaurants nearby that what you pay for a burger and fries. The lobster bisque was sensational and my wife had a salad with lobster.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our meal experience at The Old Village Inn from the moment we entered the building to the moment we left. The hostess at the front was very pleasant and surprised us when she told us our table was ready even though we were 15 minutes early. Our waiter, Jim, was very mellow and we felt like we were his only customers (we weren't). Service was prompt, but not rushed. Food was delicious (my wife felt it was the best restaurant meal she had ever had - she had the Filet Mignon). And the surprise at the end was the check. it was probably about 75% of what I was expecting. When in the area again, will definitely try to get back.

This place has so much character! It was been there almost 200 years! The chef is amazing. We had grilled scallops and the clam chowder. Sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender who has been there 26 years and some friendly patrons from Rhode Island. Absolutely recommend- we will be back!
