I had the flank steak and it was a bit chewy but the friends that were celebrating their 18 anniversary had the Chicken and loved it. I haven't eaten at the restaurant many times and I love it.

My pork ribs were very overcooked, dry, and did "fall off the bone"
as they should...had them several times at Happy Hour and they were
moist and cooked just right. The Manager had to take them off my bill.

This has been a go to place for us for years but we’re disciuraged by the long wait lines. Just discovered can make reservations for four through OpenTable so returned. The hamburgers continue to be outstanding and two pastas we ordered were also delicious. One entree, the Souther shrimp and Grits was disappointing because the finely ground white cornmeal wasn’t as tasty as the coarser yellow grind expected. We were seated in booth by the window and it was too dark to see the menus! This row of seats lacks the lower lighting afforded by other seats so we would decline that seating in the future. Also think that water should be provided for upon arrival, or at least an inquiry should be made. When I finally asked for water, I was asked if it wa water just for me or if anyone else wanted it as well. I had to request a refill from a passing waiter. Still, your large menu is always welcome and most of the dishes meet expectation!

The food here is usually very good. My husband and our guest ordered prime rib which were not as tender as they usually are. The clam chowder and the wedge salad were delicious as were the crab cakes.

We've eaten here many times. This was our worst meal in the five years that we've been coming here.

The food was terrible, and our server was worse. We were given a 7:30 reservation , although we had requested an earlier time. The food was not prepared as ordered. Our water glasses were not refilled during our meal. We had to ask for bread, and the server didn't bring butter until we asked for it. One guest ordered a hamburger and had to ask for ketchup and mustard the next time that we caught our server.

My husbands steak was undercooked and the asparagus was cold. But staff was ver apologetic and offered a free dessert for the inconvenience.
I enjoyed my meatball skillet.

It was our first time at the Village Tavern. We are from Seattle and come to Phoenix for Spring Training every year. We also look forward to our steak night each year. We have tried many places over the years. This was one of our best experiences. The waiter (can’t remember his name) was excellent. He was friendly and humorous without being too much so. We all order steak, the baked potato, and a salad. The steak was perfectly cooked (I like mine rare and they like their’s medium) and very tasty. We will definitely be back next year.

We are patrons for over 15 years. Food choices are superb and the quality is excellent. Most times our servers are very good however on Wednesday the 28th our oldest son was visiting from Boston and he as well as we remarked at how wonderful our server was. Her name is Makalynn. Please be sure to pass along our thanks for a wonderful evening.
