We had an excellent brunch for my elderly father in law's birthday. Alex was our waiter and he was very attentive. Crab cake Benedict with sriracha hollandaise was delicious. Creamy grits & apple walnut muffins equally yummy. We'll definitely go back!

Service was slow especially trying to pay our bill and get credit card back, and there was an item on our bill we did not order. Fortunately we caught it but I thought the waiter was a bit blase about it. The food was very good though and we will still come back.

The ambiance is nice. Our poor server dipped his elbow in the soup, mixed up our orders, forget silverware and was otherwise having a challenging time. That said, the server was very nice.

I chose this restaurant for the variety of menu items as we had an electric group who ranged from healthy to comfort food and in between. So I knew everyone could find something. However, with a menu this large, I am not sure there are any stand out items. Though the burger I had was delicious, (hormone and antibiotic free to boot).

Disappointed with this last visit to Village Tavern. Ordered the Shrimp Risotto, Shrimp was ok, but Risotto was way overcooked, almost like a paste, and Risotto flavor was just lackluster. Also ordered a Gastropub burger, ordered the burger to have a pink center, and it arrived way overcooked.

I don't know if I will go back, food was disappointing.

Ambiance is great, one of the strong points of this restaraunt. Drinks were spot-on and the food was well prepared and the temperatures were perfect.

Our server was good when he c wss with us but seemed to be stretched a bit thin, so there were times when we went for a pretty good stretch of time without seeing him. Not a big negative impact but it wss noticeable.

We will be back.

Menu is varied and good. We were there on a Wed. night 1/2 price wine so it was very busy and very loud.
The booths are very cozy but atmosphere was so loud. Tom and I both had burgers which were good and a decent value. Our service was excellent even though it was so busy.

I always have phenomenal service here, and everyone always likes their food. However, this waitress seemed to have an attitude with us (my companion commented on it as well). She was not around much, and seemed irritated that we wanted dessert--she didn't ask, she was ready to bring the bill and we had to say no, we would like dessert. We ordered entrees, appetizers, and dessert, so not like we weren't spending any money, but felt like we were a bother.

Meeting friends for a brunch and Village Tavern was suggested. Never been so we met there. Service was great. Brunch drink prices are awesome $3.50! The smoked salmon was a miss but the real winner was the French Toast! Plenty of variety for everyone.

We made a reservation, server either didn’t look at the notes or didn’t care. No one wished us a happy anniversary. Our experience lasted less than 45 minutes. I requested hot tea, someone didn’t finish their side work and the disheveled cady of tea was handed to me and then left on the table. Waitress never took our cocktail order. Handed me to go boxes for my food at the arrival of our entrees. Then when I asked her if she wouldn’t mind boxing up my soup while I ate my entree, she literally held the container and wanted me to pour the soup in her hand. My husband worked for Buckhead Life for years, and I’m not expecting the same level of service that I’d get, at say Chops, however, failing to simply wish us happy anniversary is a basic Chucky Cheese level of service. Needless to say we got coffee and desert elsewhere.

We ate outside on a Saturday night and had a guitarist singer entertain us during dinner. It was not too loud, so that we could enjoy conversation also. Service was very good. At the time, they were also serving many tables of teens going to Homecoming. Ahi tuna appetizer and clam chowder were very good. Husband had shrimp firecracker tacos. Friends had ceasar salad with blackened chicken and a hamburger and everyone was satisfied with their meals. Bread was good too.

We celebrated my husband's birthday on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Steven, our personable waiter, was knowledgeable in the menu and the wine list. The wedge salad and spinach salads were delicious, as was the meatball bake and teriyaki chicken. My favorite remains the braised scallops. We had the double decker cheesecake for desert. I was disappointed that there was a slight freezer burn flavor to the top, but the chocolate was delicious.
