Thanksgiving day dinner. I wanted to like this restaurant. The promo for the dinner seemed good. Our party of 5 was seated at a nice table. There were 2 rooms. The one in the front next to the bar was cramped.. very cramped. There were 4 large party tables there along with the "Viennese" table of desserts. We were in... More

Good food, good people, good times....we regularly visit with family and our fellow workers. Everyone there is friendly and always makes us feel welcome. Great place to visit.

This was our 3rd time at the Village Inn, the first time about a year ago was a good experience. The second time was also pretty good, this time was not so good. Our waitress was young and lacked experience. She had no idea what types of beer were on tap, she had to ask the bar tender and she... More

Have been here twice so far and loved the unique selection of entrees, both fixed and daily. Can't wait to go back.

Let me start off by saying that I eat out quite often. When I receive excellent service, I make it known to my server and to management. Because I believe that people should be complimented when they provide great service. I dined here with a Groupon at the suggestion of a co-worker. Our order was not taken for at least... More

I have been here for dinner and parties. Excellent food and service. had the duck last time and loved it. Lots of parting in the back. High end cooking with a family home atmosphere. Clean, quiet and un-rushed dining.

I had some credit for Restaurants.com and I was meeting my husband in Wayne and I found this place quite at random. I wasn't expecting much until I drove up. It is at the end of a road as if to say, "You have arrived!" the inside was cute and had a decent bar area. Immediately, the hostess was charming.... More

This is absolutely my husband's and my favorite restaurant. The food is consistently delicious and the service is awesome. Don't be fooled by the regular menu (in terms of size, it's smaller than average compared to other local menus), John Martino puts together one heck of a "specials" menu. Additionally, what the menu lacks in size, it makes up for... More

First the food served is very good. My family has eaten there a few times. It is a nice cozy place to eat, but the service is very poor. I blame the management, because they only had one waitress taking care of the entire dining room and although she worked hard to take care of all the customers, she was... More

We recently had dinner here with family (four of us) and the food and the service was OUTSTANDING. We eat here fairly often and had never had a bad experience. Heidi was our waitress and she is the BEST!
