The Substitute

If you have no better place to go then the Village Inn is OK. The food ranges from good to plastic. The kitchen staff has no idea how some dishes should be prepared; however, their efforts are above average. The Wait Staff is most affable and most are competent. The interior is clean and so are... read more

My wife and I went to this restaurant on a Wednesday (Pie Night) and were disappointed to find that they were out of most of the pies. We ordered, and our food came out bland, full of grease, flavorless and in general, it was a disappointing evening. Maybe next wime.

The only reason I am bothering to write this is to warn future customers. Things have to be bad for me to say anything at a dining place. And they were. When the server told us they were backed up in the kitchen. That was really code for THINGS ARE REALLY BAD TONIGHT JUST LEAVE. But sadly we were too... More

Maria was a wonderful server, very personable and checked in frequently. The turkey meal did not have the dressing and the broccoli had black spots on it. My huevos rancheros was all mixed together and served on a tortilla; not a good presentation. The highlight of the visit was that there were WWII vets in the restaurant who were probably... More

Average quality food, but pies and desserts to die for. Service was very prompt. Not that cheap really for what we got.

This was my first time there for any meal. Thought a breakfast would be easy enough. Not so! Lots of choices but my favorite wherever I go is a Greek Omelet. Village Inn offers a choice of build your own so I asked for spinach, tomatoes and feta cheese. When I got it I noticed after the waitress left that... More

Village Inn is an ok alternative if the wait at Wecks is too long. Food is generally average to good. Love the fact that they bring you a pot of coffee for your table.

I walked in and there wasn't a wait time. The service wasn't excellent but it wasn't horrible. Food was okay for what I paid. It was well managed.
