Food great, service hit or miss

I love to have crepes or blintzes here. When I come for lunch, I make sure it's on a free pie day, so I can have coconut cream pie. It is the best around since Marie Calendars closed up.

In all fairness, I've only eaten at Village Inn once. The staff seemed friendly, the food was adequate. A little more grease and salt then I would prefer, but it was hot and served our needs at the time. We ate there because it was open later, as we had an urgent matter, which didn't allow us to eat at... More

Prompt service, great prices, amazing variety of fantastic food. Don't pass up the breakfast casseroles on the counter across the aisle from the regular buffet area. I almost missed them, and that would have been a shame because they were maybe the best part. It was all good. Well worth more than what they charge.

Every Wednesday, an amazing slice of pie with any eats. Good place. Retro style - George Jetson like. Cannot go wrong with any pie. Most plates all delish and reasonable.

I realize that most folks in Phoenix are intimately familiar with Village Inn, but this was our first time. The decor is typical diner but the menu and service is impeccable. Though it was almost closing time, the manager and entire wait staff were jovial, engaging and instructive. We opted for breakfast and were not disappointed. Also, the pie selection... More

Have stopped at a few Village Inns since we found the chain 4 years ago, stopped at this one twice earlier this month and we were impressed with everything. If you are close by on Wednesday, don't miss out on the free pie. ( Lemon Merange still has me puckering)

We ordered a strawberry rhubarb pie at Christmas time. Filling was good, but could hardly break through the crust. It was very tough. We decided to try another strawberry rhubarb to see if it was any different. It also had a tough crust. We won't be buying another pie from Village Inn.

We continue to have issues with this restaurant. Our last visit was tonight for dinner. Even though this restaurant was remodeled "recently", it looks completely outdated and is showing signs of wear. As we walked in, "John" the asst. manager asked how we were. I responded fine. As I did so, my husband put up two fingers indicating there were... More
