We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. However, it was extremely Loud and difficult to have a conversation. Next time, I hope to request a quieter area.

Second recent visit for lunch and service was only mediocre. Restaurant appears to be understaffed and servers spread thinly. Food was good, but soup and salad took WAAYYY too long. Will be awhile before I️ visit.

Took my wife and mother in law here for dinner on Mother's Day. We have been to Village Tavern multiple times and had good experiences, however, it is pretty clear they don't manage special holidays well. Requested seating on the patio, which ended up being a huge mistake. One server was working the entire patio, which had several parties of 6 or more. We ordered drinks and an appetizer quickly but server did not come back to take our order for 45 MINUTES. No refills, no checking in, though we did see him on his phone with one party he was serving. Food finally arrived and was mediocre and cold. You can do better Village Tavern

Village Tavern was very busy, and had been all day, and boisterous, very lively. The menu was large and had many good choices. The food was good, mine was excellent and the other entrees somewhat salty. Service was good considering how crowded it was. Would not be my first choice for a special occasion again.

I will preface this with saying it was mother's day but we had reservations but had to wait 30 minutes past the time in order to be seated. The service was slow and we had to ask several times for silver ware and bread plates. This was the first time I have ever had service issues at Village Tavern and given the crowd I will try to excuse my disappointment.

Wonderful food, wonderful service just a great evening overall. We had reservationsat 615 and we were promptly seated and from thenit only got better. I had the prime rib, my husband had grilled meatloaf he said it was very good and my sister had the cajun pasta. She too said it was fantastic.

It was Mother’s Day and we had reservations. Our waitress Rachel was awesome! However, it took almost an hour for our food to come. Kitchen was backed up. The kitchen should have been prepared for that particular day. Good experience overall.

We have a friendly and prompt waitress, but the main issues were we had to wait for our table about 15 minutes and the food was not hot when we got it. It also seems they have changed some of the food items. WE ordered a calamari appetizer and now it has fried peppers and a Thai peanut butter sauce. I’m not big on peanut butter and would have much rather had the sweet chili sauce they used to serve. Other than those minor issues we had everything else was okay.

Had reservations for Mother's day. Hostess sat us 15 minutes before time. They were very accommodating. Waitress appeared rushed, and stressed! She had a tendency to reach over family members vs. waiting for glass or plate to be handed to her . She talked about how they were not getting a break due to Mothers Day business.

Food was okay, this time. Asparagus was over cooked, and spinach dip had a ton cheese that was not melted. Food has been better during times they are not as busy.

The service, food and atmosphere were all as they usually are...outstanding. I have never been disappointed with my dining experiences at Village Tavern. I would probably eat there more if it were located closer to where I live. I recommend it highly to those looking for a truly wonderful dining experience.

We arrived on time for online reservations and were promptly seated. The lunch menu was varied and appealing, and affordable for lunch. The server was good, reserved, but attentive. The food was good, little filet mignon, very small was cooked well. The only complaint was the bread. I requested the complimentary bread and four cold slices with butter were served, not hot or fresh, was dry. Perhaps the bread there is not offered fresh and warm from the oven, but it should not have been dry as though it had been sitting out awhile before being served. Overall, a very nice meal for our special occasion.

Heard great things and was a bit disappointed. Why? Because they ran out of grits. Then they ran out of green beans. Not impressive.

We have always enjoyed The Village Tavern but the service has not been very good the last couple of times that we have been there. This last visit we had to ask for refills on our beverages. He didn't seem real interested in serving us especially when we told him that we wanted to split a salad but was very attentive to the couple next to us who were ordering drinks. Maybe he doesn't like to serve couples with a child. We will come back but will let the management know that day if the server is as bad as the one we had Sunday.

It was ok. Group of 8 for a Birthday at 2:00 pm on a Sunday. That occasion was noted in the Open Table reservation but didn’t make any difference at the restaurant. Not sure why they even ask. Hostess directed us to our table after acknowledging party of 8. Table was for six, she pointed us to the table and walked away. There was an adjacent table set for four so we pushed the two tables together. Food and paper and straws were revealed making you wonder if they ever pull those out to vacuum. Ordered the Brie and the crab dip for appetizers, the waiter came back within a few minutes and apologized for being out of the Brie. No worries, we then replaced them by ordering the nachos. Nachos arrived, 15 minutes later the crab dip hit the table. Not the server's fault. He was great. Kitchen seemed to be having quite a few issues getting food out. Half the entrees came out and overheard the two bringing those plates say "where are the rest? I give up." About 5 minutes later the remainder of the orders hit the table. A few minutes later a server said "who had the side of fries?" Nobody had ordered fries but we were missing a side of veggies. Five minutes later they arrived. The food is ok, nothing mind blowing, server did his best and didn't penalize him for a poorly run kitchen, the rest needs a lot of work. Again, chain restaurants in BHM are almost always disappointing.

It was prom night so they were super busy but Sloan was still so attentive to us! They didn’t have the gluten free pasta that I had ordered so the manager came by and suggested the GF pizza, I decided to try it... Well it came out a little burnt and I didn’t eat very much of it so they took care of my pizza and our delicious creme brûlée!!! We also had the pimento deviled eggs, tuna sashimi, and the snake river pork chop... all were AMAZING! Sloan was so kind, honest, and understanding! Best service I have had in a while!

I'd give it a solid OK. The food was good and the server was pleasant. The only challenge was that she would disappear for really long spans of time and never refilled our drinks. Other than that, it was fine.

The service was excellent; our server was attentive and helpful and never annoying. She earned her tip. Our visit was a Saturday night and it was very busy but nothing took terribly long. The appetizer - deviled eggs - were tasty but not special. That goes for the entrees as well - all the food was fine but not special including the very 'mushy' grits in the shrimp and grits. Because one of us was here for a birthday and they did not have have the birthday guest's desired entree, the dessert was on the house and the chocolate torte was excellent. The experience was great but wouldn't recommend for foodies unless you're bringing a group of 6 or so in which case everyone will find something to satisfy.

Waitress was nice. Mashed potatoes were cold and she brought warmer ones. Disconnect was explanation of specials. Waitress promoted one special and another waiter we heard told two tables of a different special we were not offered. Seemed like an upsale on specials we were offered versus other tables. Nice seeing my so many prom patrons. Question??? I saw tables with bread service but we were not offered bread on patio? Is that common to not offer bread on patio?
