We stopped here after walking on the pier on the beach in Lauderdale by the Sea. It was definitely a good, quick place to grab a bite after being out all day. I ordered the Portobello Salad and added grilled chicken. It was very good and very well presented. My boyfriend ordered a burger and thought it was just average.... More

Aruba's get's the lions share of the tourist crowds but Village Grille is a much classier spot. While it is not on the beach it is very close (next door to Aruba's). The service was impeccable. Brittany was our server and she was a delight. (Ask for her) The manager also was very nice and even helped with serving when... More

Very good service and our meal was excellent. The location is close to the beach too. Their prices are a little high, but the location probably has a lot to do with that.

Had dinner here, due to sunburn, enjoyed the inside air conditioning. Fish and Chips were good. Only suggestion: Drink menu. I was surprised they didn't have any signature beach themed mixed drinks.

A great place to meet friends after a day at the beach. Fairly decent prices for the various menu options. The chicken wings are good here. Good drink specials at the bar. Friendly staff. Parking can be difficult in the area, but there are many parking lots and metered parking nearby.

Fist time there and weren't sure what to order. The waitress suggested the Bento Box one of their specials they don't put on the menu. It was perfect. Quality, taste and presentation was outstanding. The breakfast crowd the next morning was huge. Can't wait to go back to try their breakfast and have dinner again.

Others will come and go but there will always be the Village Grille and Pump. Food can be quite good at times, but the real charm is the atmosphere and overall experience.

A great way to start your morning before going to the beach. Great breakfast, Steps to the beach. Sit in the air conditioned restaurant or at the sidewalk tables with a view of the pier.
