Current owners have closed the doors as of February, 2014. All of us locals are hoping someone steps up and reopens this landmark restaurant!

I have had ruebens all over the country and in Germany. This was the best by far. Order the raisin bread for an othentic sandwich. Great food, service, and huge portions.

We thought that this would be a great place to eat for something different. The reviews were good, but we were disappointed. My husband was looking forward to having a beer on tap and I wanted to try the 1919 draft root beer. We couldn't have either. They could not serve anything on tap and evidently haven't been able to... More

BVI is a great neighborhood pub and restaurant. It is frequently very crowded at meal time, but they are open 10:00a - 10:00p. When busy, they can be slow dining in.

Excellent service and delicious draft rootbeer. Bring a friend to share the ham-and-corned beef Reuben built on heroically large and delicious bread. We didn't have room for bread pudding and will have to return (ah shucks).

My husband and I are always on the hunt for the best reuben sandwich in the midwest and the Vandereuben is in the top three! It's a nice little neighborhood restaurant to have a quick lunch at, Our waitress was friendly and made some funny small talk about my husband not being able to polish off his gigantic sandwich. Speaking... More
