Village Squire is a long time locally owned restaurant. It is a little noisy but the atmosphere is one of the best of Crystal Lake's restaurants - warmth of lots of wood, fireplaces, and cozy booths. Personally, I've never had a bad meal here and service has always been good. Spanakopita is very tasty.

We were here with a large group on Halloween for a wedding rehearsal dinner. We thought the staff was very attentive and the food was great.

Love the popcorn on the table. Nice casual in town dining. The gyro's are great and love the fish specials. Sitting by the fireplace on a cold day is so nice.

We went to Village Squire for a friends' birthday. They had a birthday Mai Tai for her that included a lit candle in the straw. Mai Tai's tasted awesome, probably not too much alcohol, though. The Saganaki was fantastic! Fun to have flaming cheese at your table. We loved the singer that was there that night, too. The menu is... More

Stopped in for a late, casual dinner when in town, and was pleasantly surprised -- loved the popcorn on the table, and the burgers were very, very good. Made to order, very flavorful. Nice casual dining; lots of room; family friendly.

Our waitress was very gracious while it took us quite a while to make our decisions. The problem was the very extensive menu. At our table one person had the prime rib grinder, one the Caesar salad with grilled chicken (large portion on top), one the blackened chicken Alfredo, one the Parmesan crusted tilapia, and one the chicken - beef...

You have to try the Saganaki (flaming cheese) Oompa! Served with pita bread and yummy,especially with a Mai Tai or Rum Barrel- House specialities. Great menu selection and great food. Can go casual or dressed up- family friendly as well. Steaks, burgers, salads, sandwiches, appetizers, pastas-great choices.

The Squire boasts an old English pub atmosphere that's fun! You receive free popcorn. They have some fancy drinks. Service was decent. Most food items seemed ok... The broccoli side was way underdone a tasteless. I wish they would step up and offer a bigger variety of vegetarian fare: we get tired of portobello sandwiches, salads, and veggie paninis. Make...
