A Step Back in Time (in a Good Way!)

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... read 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!

This place is a favorite for just hanging out for beer and pizza. There are several area locations and I believe they are all great. It has been years since I stopped in to eat/drink and although the restaurant in Elgin is the newest location, I think, the Algonquin and Crystal Lake spots are super too.

Met up with some old friends and their kids for dinner. Fun place and friendly staff. We munched on popcorn while waiting on our Saganaki, which was delicious. Food was wonderful and large portions. We migrated to the bar after dinner to listen to the live music. Not all that great but we enjoyed ourselves regardless.

Great Saganaki and a strong menue. Popcorn on the table and a fireplace makes this place a comfy place that puts you at ease with good food and good service.

Brian Castillo was an excellent cover singer. Food was plentiful and waitress was excellent. Price is very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food.

I went there after wandering around the Scarecrow festival with my fiance. I ordered the Schnitzel and Spaetzle, and I loved it. I don't take food home but I took what I didn't eat home, and I hate leftovers. I guess it is a Octoberfest special and I would like to go get it again.
