The restaurant was jammed, so the only booth available for 4 was next to the kitchen as well as a small office to which an employee went in & out singing loudly all the while. Hard to hear our friends speaking with the singing.

Everyone's food was good except the prime rib on my sandwich was tasteless & full of gristle. Server was very pleasant.

Claim to be certified gluten free. Server had no knowledge of celiac disease and being gluten free. Manager tried to be helpful but had minimal knowledge. I left without eating. Not safe for celiacs!

We don’t live in Scottsdale - snowbirds from Canada. But every time we come to Arizona, we always make a point of visiting Village Tavern. Their food is always phenomenal. The only complaint is the noise level...but I guess that is what happens when an establishment is so popular!

Our experience with the 2 hostesses was very disappointing. We arrived early for our reservation and were made to wait for 15 minutes while the hostesses seated people who walked in after us with no reservation.
The hostesses were both quite rude and we won’t be going back to Village Tavern again.

Great food and service, but it does get quite loud and could be challenging to have business meetings over a meal.

Very good food. The best prime rib of any I've had in Arizona. Very crowded so reservations are a must. Reasonable prices for the quality of the food.

The Village Tavern consistently offers a menu that manages to meet most diners’ expectations. While not food for foodies, there is more than enough variety in the offerings that all can find a satisfying choice. Where else do you find all those excellent hamburgers ? And the sides a re terrific. But, there is so much more to whet your appetite and the service always is good. Moreover, seating is comfortable and the noise level is always acceptable. Kudos to this long lasting dependable eating establishments.,

Always exceptional. We went at lunch. My favorite entree is the flank steak with chips. I was no longer on the lunch menu but when I asked, our waiter said it was not problem, they could prepare it. As usual, it met expectations. My husband and granddaughter had the chicken and waffles and they loved it. The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. One of our favorite places to eat.

Fo of was very good and weather beautiful. We ate on the patio. However, the service was not good at all. Our wait person was not attentive and did not listen to requests. She made a number of mistakes with our requests and bill.

Village Tavern is about the only place in Gainey that has weathered all the ups and downs. It's a busy place in winter with visitors. Book a reservation to save your spot.

Please tell the chef that while the “Maryland crab cakes” were good, in order to be true Maryland crab cakes they need Old Bay seasoning. (We are from MD). Old Bay=Chesapeake Bay.

Celebrated a friend’s birthday with a delicious lunch yesterday. Our server was Mackenzie and she was outstanding.

We enjoyed the tacos, tavern salad, caesar salad with salmon, and a goat cheese and mushroom flatbread. Everyone thought
It was excellent and the restaurant treated the birthday girl to a decadent chocolate torte with ice cream as a grand finale.

Will look forward to more wonderful experiences here!

We went to the Tavern to celebrate a birthday,when making the reservation we were ask if it was a special occasion I dont know why nothing was done like most restaurants not even a scope of ice cream with a candle.
The thing that really bothers me is we forget our doggy bag,got to the front desk maybe 50 feet turned around and it was already in the bus tray to throw out. When ask I think the floor manager why it couldn't have been brought to the front desk before thrown away I was advised it health standards. What great customer service for someone to take a few steps and would have met me on the return. With service like this I will think twice before returning.

Everything we had was outstanding. Flank steak, Idaho trout, fish and chips, shrimp and grits. But you must have the butter cake!!! Waitress has very knowledge and food was prepared quickly. Family atmosphere, a little loud but everything was terrific. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed the Village Tavern. Good food. We liked it so much that we made a reservation for Valentines Day when friends of ours are coming in from out of town.
