Good food and drinks

We visit this location and the West Dundee restaurant. The food is good as well as the drinks. Various food and drink specials. Reasonable pricing. Very good burgers, chicken dishes and Mai Tai. Good all around restaurant that offers a wide variety of menu items.

This is a typical restaurant whose menu is 3 pages long, but no matter what you get, everything is bland. It is good for families who want a quick night out, though it really is not that cost competitive either.

Great comfort food in a olde english-themed environment. The recent trip we made with extended family was a fun one. All kids (young and old) appreciated the atmosphere and very generous portions. The staff did a fine job accommodating our party of 14 getting drinks and orders correct and delivered to the table as expected. It is a little difficult... More

Visited Village Squire on a Sunday evening for dinner with family. We all enjoyed our meals and the Old English Inn feel of the place. If definitely recommend it if you're in the neighborhood and looking for a good meal at a moderate price.

Can get quiet booths or table near fireplace and enjoy good meal with friendly service. Ask for specials like half off on bottle of wine. Soups very good.

I was part of a group of 30 people that visited this restaurant and was surprised it was able to handle the group and it's other guests at the same time. The pork chops were delicious and a few of us had Filet open face on a hard roll and some had the Gyros. Overall everything seemed to go alright... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat at when I am in the area. All of their menu items are good and the atmosphere is good too. Be prepared to wait. Ask if they have open tables in the bar area.
