We had our first trip to Lauderdale by the Sea and visited most every restaurant in the area - but we always came back to Village Grille! Not only was the food amazing but more so - the waitress was the most personable, caring, attentive and pleasant ever! We have dined at hundreds of places but this one is the... More

Dined here for lunch with my wife and had a nice experience. We sat outdoors and took in the beach scenery. Restaurant is very casual and it just felt relaxing to be outdoors, especially on a day that had a cool beach breeze. I would say it was almost a 50/50 mix of tourists and locals. I had the French...

The Village Grille offered a menu that had a decent selection but I would have to say that the two dishes that we had were just the average stuff you will find in any diner. Nothing exceptional.

The food here was excellent. Our waitress was awesome!! The manager/owner kept coming back to our table to make sure everything was ok. We were there with a party of 10 for spring break. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is good, casual/beach indoor outdoor atmosphere nice, and its location within a brief walk from the beach - all great. The only downside was due to a confluence of two events which they might have handled a bit better: My husband and I went on an incredibly busy weekend (during a big art fair on the streets surrounding...

We were seated immediately and were waited on once but after that, a male at our table literally had to get up and get our waiter to take our order and for our bill. We were there for far longer than we planned because our waiter really neglected us. I felt like my friend was doing half his job by... More

Service here is great. Everyone was very friendly, from the hostess, to the waitress to the food server. We had the breakfast platter. For $7.50 we had a complete breakfast of eggs, one meat, home fries, toast and coffee! We liked the restaurant so much that we returned for lunch a couple of days later.
