Food is good and servings are generous. This place is a bit pricey which is why I chose the title. Server Patti D. is very friendly and knows the menu quite well. She came by a few times to check on us and see if we needed anything.

I have eaten here a couple of times prior ad everything was top notch. This time around the service was slow and my food had to be sent back. I ordered one of their specials (the burger of the month). When it came out it was over cooked. Not even close to the correct temperature. To add insult to injury the description stated that it was topped with brisket. It may have been brisket but it didn't taste like brisket. It appeared to be a short rib. I mentioned this and after taking my food back to the kitchen the waitress returned and apparently argued with me that the short rib WAS brisket. I relented just to get my food. When it finally came it was still over cooked. I just took it and left. Luckily I didn't have to pay for it.

This restaurant was new to me, nice atmosphere. 3 out of 4 people enjoyed their meal. Fish and chips was the disappointment for one diner who expected thick fries instead of the home made potato chips served, although the fish was cooked to perfection. This restaurant was able to accommodate a glutton free diner. Service was a little slow checking on things we needed. Overall comfortable, clean and the food was good.

I was meeting a date at the Village Tavern and, although we were able to enjoy a good meal and great service, we found ourselves constantly saying "What?" to each other. The restaurant has a very, shall we say, "energetic" noise level.
My date and I went to the bar afterwards and enjoyed some live music (which was very good) and a couple of drinks.
Overall, other than the high noise level, this place was a very good experience that I would do again.

Tried this neighborhood tavern based on reviews and was not disappointed. Seated right away and server was friendly. Nice variety on menu and our food was well prepared. My husband had the prime rib special and I had the Cajun chicken and shrimp with mango salsa. Both were tasty and enough leftovers to bring home for another meal. Prices are reasonable and there's something for everyone. We were seated in a dining room separate from the bar area and we could not hear the lively sports bar action unless we ventured to investigate. Live music in the bar and a deck which most likely is jammin on a summer eve! We'll be back to try the burgers and sandwiches which looked huge!

This was always our go to spot, but lately it just is not that good. Our server was very slow. When we finally got our salads, we had to wave her down to get silverware. My husbands appetizer came after our entrees were served (she said the kitchen lost the ticket, which i think she did not place the order). My prime rib was very tough. I am not sure what is happening to this restaurant. Thinking about not going back.

I had been to the tavern in the bar area only once before. I remember the Village burger was great and I was looking forward to having it again. Saturday's village burger was not as good as I remembered. I opted for fries instead of the chips. The fries did not taste like they had been seasoned. They weren't very good. On a positive note, the seafood bisque was delicious and the waitress was great.

Made our reservations through Open Table for a party of 10 with a request to be in the bar area for an informal get together with old friends. We were seated as requested for sandwiches and drinks. The food is plentiful and served piping hot. The wait staff was great for a large party. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves till the wee hours. We would go there again and recommend it for both casual and formal dining.

Not the best experience, service was slow, meals came out at different times and were warm not hot. Seated in the middle of a room of families with children when other tables were available in a less noisy and less traveled area. Probably won't go back.

The menu said wow but the food said ok. The portions are HUGE but taste and overall quality were only fair. We split the 3 large spring roll appetizer which was pretty good but the over-wraps were a bit dry. My patty melt was the worst I've had in the area upon reflection as the order was not prepared medium but tasted a if it had sat on the stove top for hours as it was dry and well done and tasteless save for all the stuff(onion ring, tomato, sauce) that overwhelmed it anyway. The waitress was nowhere to be found to complain. And the bread, while the best part was much, too much. My wife's turkey dinner was much better, tasted good but likewise was overwhelmed by bread and the mashed potatoes. Overall fair at best.

The food was good and the service was excellent but the noise level was out of control. I could not even hear the person I was meeting with, so I would not recommend this place for a business meeting, which unfortunately was the purpose of my lunch. However, it would be great for a casual lunch or night with friends when you wouldn't mind having to talk over the noise.

I have to start by saying that the food was very fresh. I had a chicken sandwich, and everything about it was fresh and tasty. Even the potato chips were freshly made! The drinks were great also. There was also a lot of food. We didn't make it to desert even though we were planning to. My only issue was the incongruence between the outside of the building (old tavern), the menu (gastro-pub) and the interior of the restaurant (dingy Italian restaurant). I was disappointed that the feel of the tavern didn't go as far as the eating area. It felt like there had been a change of owners and they weren't done making it their own yet. It certainly made a nice change from the chain restaurants nearby and I will more likely go back again soon.

We were a group of 10. One of which was my grand daughter who is 4 years of age with a neuromuscular disease. she is in a power wheel chair. I also had an 89 year old women with a walker. They went above and beyond to accommodate us. We had a beautiful table with a beautiful view. We often run into problems because of our family needs but the Village Tavern now has a lifetime customer with our entire faAmily. Thank you Village Tavern staff for your kindness and accommodations.

Everyone's meal was great, except mine. The eggplant was chewy and overcooked. I notified my waitress, Kelly, about this and she took it away and suggested that I order something else, which I did.

When the bill arrived, the eggplant parmesan was removed from the bill and replaced with the burger that I ordered in it's place, but I feel, that given the issue with the meal, my meal should have been no charge.

Kelly, our waitress, was very apologetic and understanding, but I feel that she could have gone the extra mile and had the manager make an appearance at our table and I should not have been charged for my meal.

Needless to say, I was not a satisified customer last night, and would appreciate a response to this.

Very good burgers and pub food but inside decor needs some serious upgardes. The place just smells old. Correction, it reeks old...There are (2) bars small and large, and an outdoor section that is popular when they have live music and nice weather. The waitress was touting their burgers and soliciting our vote for Phily's Best.. They are good but don't make the cut in m book for slightly lacking flaover in the meat. I also had a Smithwicks that was skunked and on its way out...

This place is a great Burger and Beer joint. Beer list is varied and always changing and adding new beers. You will find great local beers and beers you won't normally find any where else..

The veggie burger had too much "stuff" with it. The crab cake was wonderful! There was too much food for a lunch, so a lot of it was wasted. If there were smaller servings the price could be lower. It was quite pricey for a lunch for 4 people! Service was great.

My third visit to the VT and was not up to my expectations. I had the Chicken Parmesan which was rather flavorless.
It was a big thick piece of chicken but was a little tough and over cooked. The sauce was good but the whole dish just did not come together. There was barely any mozzarella cheese on the chicken and I doubt they even used any Parmesan cheese. Usually on a dish like that they come table side with some cheese to add on top of the dish.
I would only come back to the VT for the pub food which means burgers and sandwiches. These are the only items I can recommend.
