Wonderful Dining When On Their Game

The restaurant itself is full of dark woods, Olde English still furnishings and dimly lit. Also, no matter the time the restaurant always seems to be loud. My sister with Autism has a hard time eating here due to the darkness and the noise. The food can be really hit or miss. When the kitchen... read more

Come here often with my daughter for a mid week supper. We often try new things. However the spinach dip is great. The cocktail specials are yummy. Always a good time with great service.

Good food and fair prices, in an old English atmosphere make for a pleasant meal at The Village Squire. This location has a larger bar, often with live entertainment on the weekends and two nice sized dining rooms separate from the bar. the main dining room has a high ceiling and a big fireplace on the far end. It almost... More

This was a very fun experience. We just stopped in for a drink. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. It's a very fun atmosphere with a fireplace in the main dining room. We checked out the menu. There is a wide variety of items from salads to pasta entrees and everything in between. There is also a gaming room... More

This is a neighborhood family place with good comfort food. They also serve mai tai and saganaki. Go there quite often for quick meals or just to dine out. Go check it out

My boyfriend and I along with two friends stopped by here after a day spent at the Kane County Swap Meet. I literally felt like I walked into the past...the 1970's. Kitschy-ily decorated, I was actually giddy with excitement. What surprised me was how good the food was, and our server could NOT have been any nicer or more efficient.... More

We have consistently had great hamburgers from the Village Squire. There are other hamburger places around the area, but we frequent Village Squire because we know we will get a great burger, that tastes fresh every single time we go there. We have had other items on the menu, but the burger is our favorite!

Not a big selection of food. Standard sandwich choices and pizza. Stopped in just by chance, would not go out of my way to return. Not a bad experience by any means, just average. Was not a big fan of the wooden picnic type tables & chairs. Located in a busy shopping area that has quite a few different restaurant... More

We had a pleasant evening at Village Squire. Service and decor were good. We had mostly light dinners which were all fine. I had a nice dinner sized salad topped with strawberries which was good. My daughter had a wrap which she liked. They had some nice children's choices. It was pretty good for the price.

We always enjoy the food, and ambiance of the Squire. This place never disappoints. My son likes the popcorn and is always impressed with the flaming cheese!
