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.

We have been to all of he Village Squires. They are all nice, but this one definitely has the best feeling about it.

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...

Having eaten here long ago, I was concerned that the quality might have degraded over the years. When we pulled up I saw some "older" folks going in and my apprehension level rose significantly. However, my worries were for nothing - the food excellent, the service attentive, and the atmosphere fun as myself, my wife, an adult family friend, and... More

At 5:30 p.m. on a Sunday ran out of specials and the prime rib grinder. Food cold and salty. Waitress checked on us one time 10 minutes after received food and wanted to know if we wanted to go boxes. After we replied no she ran away before we could complain. When waitress inquired if service was good we informed... More

I've been to the Squire a handfull of times over the years. Recently, I took my teenage kids here, as I was tired of eating at the less-than-average places (at least in the grown up world). My past experiences at the Squire had been pretty good. However, this one was somewhat disappointing. I'm torn about how to rate this experience-... More

Nice surprise by the fresh popcorn as we sat down. Diverse menu. We choose burgers that were cooked perfectly, flavorful and juicy. The steak fries were crispy and large. Our waiter was very attentive and checked on up a few times. Will be back to try more menu items and of course the popcorn!!

We joined some new friends for dinner. Each meal ordered was received as requested (prime rib was done to the correct doneness). Each element of the dinner was good, as was service. Would definitely return for another evening. The only drawback was the piano player who played all the way through dinner so conversation was difficult.
