Good family restaurant

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.

Came with my three kids and tried the burgers. Awesome. Each burger cooked perfectly to order and great steak fries. But, my waiter could not have been nicer and more attentive. It is common when dining with kids to get a server that doesn't want to give an effort just because a dad dining alone with three kids isn't likely... More

My friends and I like to meet at Village Squire for dinner after work. We like to come during the week day since it is not as crowded and we can take as much time was we want without taking up table space. The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. A good place to take the family... More

This was our first time at this restaurant; service was very good; food quality was excellent. Saganaki was authentic and was very good! Everyone at the table enjoyed their entrees. Would try this place again.

We used to love going to the Dundee one. But they built this one closer to us, so we go here. The popcorn as you wait is great - salty just like I like it. There drinks are awesome - got to love rum barrels! Food was fine - menu is huge and overwhelming. Love their french onion soup

We used to go here quite a bit, then they changed the menu and have fewer options than other Village Squire restaurants. Food is only average and the service depends on which waitress you get. Better service in the Bar area than in the restaurant.

My wife and I stop into this restaurant once a month when we're too lazy to cook. The menu is huge and they make everything just average. I personally like their chicken sandwich and the service is good. It will never be a destination but on a Wednesday when you don't like what you have in your own refrigerator you... More
