Great food, too little space, too much noise!

Our party of five enjoyed the food but the spacing between tables is very tight. As too many people are placed in too small a space, the noise was excessive.

Our party of four dined in the Tavern section of this restaurant on Wednesday night, after being denied a seat outside due to a lack of reservations. We were dismayed to learn that not only were reservations needed for outside seating, but also that the Tavern menu on the website is in fact only a lunch menu for weekends. The... More

I have enjoyed many meals at the Village Inn over the years.It is the only place that I would have their crispy duck I I knew that there were new owners so my friends and I decided to try it out. There are more tables in the dining room. The noise level made it almost impossible to talk! Then there... More

I have been to The Village Inn for dinner twice now since new owners Kate and Heather took over. The first time was for their special Thanksgiving meal and the second time was after the renovations about two weeks ago. The Thanksgiving meal was amazing. My husband ordered the duck appetizers and I order the crab cakes - both were... More

We have been eating at the Village Inn for 25 years - through various ownerships and many ups and downs, we have remained regular customers. We were concerned that the quality was really deteriorating in recent years and were so very pleased to visit the newly renovated and refurbished Village Inn and Tavern this year! The new owners have spruced... More

Have been going to this place for years under several ownerships. Food is average. Location in small village of Belgrade Lakes is lovely. Unique menu feature is the always present roast duck which is usually delicious, but overcooked on some occasions. Duck is served with a wide choice of sweet or savory sauces. Place is good for groups, families or... More

Called Summer Smash. 5 days later and I'm still thinking about how refreshing it was. But along with that some lovely changes have taken place at Village Inn since we last visited 2 years ago. Fresh interior, new management and chef. All of our meal was delicious. We shared an appetizer of lobster and corn fritters with 2 light sauces... More

Menu selections excellent..food great...upgraded decor...drinks done right...but our service was poor. The waitress was rude, very impatient, not friendly and she has been there 8 years. No excuse. We were a friendly group of 7 who always have fun. Our... More

Came up with a colleague for the first time on 25 June to try out the famous roasted duck. We both had a great meal. The duck and the NE claim chowder were outstanding. The sunset view from the lake across the street was beautiful.
