Stopped in for a late dinner. Great patio for warm evenings. The crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had!

Love Village Tavern, for the food ambiance and service, which is usually on point, however last night was an “off night” waited quite long for our entrees. After waiting 35-40 minutes our waitress who was quite nice, explained that the kitchen was backed up, and we should get our meals soon, and offered us “bread”.
I also understand the issue was behind the scenes. And I believe this is a rare occasion.

Food is always good.
Salads are a good go to and burgers are always good (big too).
I love the street tocos. Fried chicken tocos are really good with the mango cilantro slaw and chipotle mayo

Seating is problematic here. There are booths along the windows, a large bar area with high top tables on the opposite side and several four top tables lined up diagonally in a line in the middle section very close together and close to the bar. The first time I went here, we were seated in the middle section close to a large group which was cramped, but they were able to move us to a booth.

We had reservations a few days ago, and seated at bar at a high top was a group with several kids, who were not being attended. They were roaming everywhere. We asked to be moved again to an open table or booth. We were told they were reserved for reservations. We reminded them that we also had reservations. The only other available table was a high top in hallway off from the bar, which was like not being at the restaurant at all. We left and went to another restaurant.

This IS NOT a good restaurant for families with lots of kids . The don’t have a lot of space to accommodate them. I will also add that the parking lot is small and it’s difficult to find a spot ; there is no street parking. We won’t return. Their menu is decent but not worth the hassle. IMO, there are many comparable restaurants that provide a better dining experience. We won’t return.

Outside terrace area where we ate had not been adequately cleaned from prior customers.
Napkin wrapped utensils were filthy and we had to request twice before replaced.
One diners salad was missing its protein.
My dinner arrived cold. Took 30 minutes to be replaced.

As always we had a great experience at VT. Received a lovely booth by a window. Had the $5 Moscow mule and $5 margarita to drink. Got the Tavern nachos to start. For entrees my boyfriend got one of the burgers and I got the crispy chicken tacos which are one of my favorite items on the menu! Food was wonderful as usual. Our server was awesome and she was quite busy with a wedding party next to us and another small table. We always have a great time at VT! We will be back soon!

We had reservations... took 20 minutes to get seated.. another 25 before appetizers were on the table and really lost time between appetizer and main meal.. a delay in getting dessert.
The kitchen seemed to be having issues and there was not enough staff. Simply took for ever ..
Put a mature team in place at hostess stand.

Always a good place for lunch or dinner. Great atmosphere and low noise so you can actually have a conversation without shouting over voices or loud music.

The food was great as usual, BUT the service was AWFUL!!!! I called the General Manager shortly after to complain , that’s how bad the service was, and all he did was defend the 2 (two) servers. That WAS a wasted use of my time as he took a “I don’t really care” attitude. Not a very good role model or manager!!!! In summary, we did NOT have a good dining experience!!!!!!!!

This is a regular place for us. Food is always consistent and excellent. Our waitress heated our cups before she put coffee in them - excellent! Can always have a conversation with the people across from you so noise level is not over the top.

First let me say that this place has been completely remodeled since I've been there 8 yrs ago. I do like new look but first there are a few things that I didn't like. First the service was S-L-O-W. My date and I sat there for quite some time before we even got menu's. 2. The place is NOISY and unless you get a booth then your practically sitting next to the table next to you!!

What I mane by that is your so close that you don't have any privacy. I'd pass on this place for a date but if your in a group then it's good.

We had an outstanding late lunch / early dinner. It was quiet / enjoyable. We weren't rushed and able to enjoy our meal. The food was outstanding. Great recommendations from our server. From wine to appetizers as well as confirmation that our entree's were a great choice.

I've been going here for years. This time, the service was a bit slow at first, so we were a little nervous. The only complaint...the server didn't know how to discuss the beer menu. There is a table-tent menu that had Carolina craft beer selections and she could see I was struggling to find a beer I wanted. She didn't offer any suggestions about ANY beers, but maybe that is because I was looking at the table-tent menu. Anyway, thought it was odd that she didn't mention the featured beers or the other beers at the bar. Luckily I thought to look toward the bar and saw the taps. MINOR complaint though.
Food is always good. And SO much to choose from. We will be back!
