Great bar, great staff

This is the best neighborhood bar in south Florida, food is amazing, great live music, but what sets it apart are the employees, friendly and fun! Very efficient and the bartenders make you feel at home

The Village Grille serves up yummy, always consistently good food. From their burger to their special salads, it's all good. Make sure you check the menu for their daily special! On Tuesdays they offer a genuine turkey dinner with all the fixings! Their cocktails are very good, especially their Bloody Mary.You have to try that! Their breakfasts are very good... More

We sat outside on the patio, great place to eat and watch people. My wife had the French Onion Soup and it was great. I had the lobster roll which was also very good.

This place had a 20 minute wait and we got a Patio table. Staff was very nice and accommodating, greeted us with Happy Easter, how nice. The two of us had Bacon and... More

We sat at the bar and had drinks while watching the Red Sox/Yankees game last night. We shared a bento box that was pretty good. Enough for two. After 3 hours and $100 tab, the bartender turned into a jerk with bouncer attitude when my husband came back from the restroom and asked the guy at the bar who was... More

We had a wonderful mean at the Village Grille. The hostess was prompt in seating us and the service was great too. We started with oysters on the half shell, and with a fish dip. The fish dip was so good that we went back the next day for lunch to have it again! I ordered the seared tuna and... More

Village grill is your average pub food. Nice location to sit outside and people watch. Menu is ok and food is ok. Good place to go when you just feel like snacking and having a drink or you're not sure what you want to do. It's basic food. Burgers, salads, seafood - not bad.
