Great dinner!!

Went here our last night in Ft Lauderdale. What a great place to eat. I had the special Wild Scottish Salmon, cook just right, served with rice and asparagus. We had seats outside great for people watching. Our waiter was very attentive. I definitely recommend this place.

They're food is so fresh and always hot. Their menu prices are terrific. Better yet, if you eat at the pump next door (attached), you get a free breakfast with the order of an alcoholic bev. The staff is always friendly. Great local vibe but a tourist must visit.

Nice place for breakfast. Nice tat they offered bloody Mary's and mimosas so early in the morning. Had the eggs Benedict, delicious and their home fries were very flavorful. Sat outside.

I am always looking for somewhere by the beach to eat. Visited for breakfast with 2 others. Renee was our server and was so sweet and attentive. We had Eggs Benedict and Grille Breakfast Platters. For drinks we had mimosas which were decent for the price! The portions were good as was the food. Relaxed and no rush atmosphere for... More

We ate breakfast here twice during our stay. There is a good selection of breakfast items at reasonable prices. The only drawback is that they tend to attract a waiting line, especially for outdoor dining if the weather is warm. Be warned that if you try to sit outdoors and do not check in with the hostess, the wait staff... More

We have become regulars at this great restaurant where service and staff have always been great and super friendly. No wonder there are so many regulars year after year. Love it for the sourdough bread and best homefries.

Ate lunch outside. The food was good. Watch out for the Hawks they will steal your food while not looking.

We stayed in the area for a week, we ate every meal out. We ate here the first night we arrived and really liked it. We tried 2 other restaurants in the area for a breakfast and dinner but were disappointed so returned to the Village Grille for every meal after that for the entire week. The Village Grille had...

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Managed to get a nice table for two outside (great for people watching!). Food was great, we both had blackened and jerk chicken sandwiches with two sides, absolutely delicious. They didn't have the wine we ordered in stock so gave us a better one for the cheaper price. Service was good too. Would like to go... More

We were greeted outside by the staff who tell you where you can't sit in an unfriendly manner. You can only sit outside with a party of four if you are a smoker. Otherwise there were only tables for 2 or 5. We requested the table for 5 and they said it was only for a large party and we... More
