From the French onion soup to the haddock fish fry, everything was superb. The Kimmelweck sandwich (a local thing) and the seafood croissant are outstanding. The butter pecan/pretzel/mud (chocolate) dessert is unique and delicious. You won't go wrong with anything they offer; highly recommend The Village Inn.

We happened by the Village Inn the other night and over all thought the place was good. Actually the food was terrific. The wine selection was fine and they pour a generous glass. Their selection of beer is excellent both bottled and draft. What was lousy was the service. It seemed as though it was everyone's first night on the... More

Located in an old home in a residential neighborhood on an island you pass over on the way to Niagara Falls,this is a bit out of the way but worth the detour. The food is always home made and tasty...especially love the soups and desserts and the Friday night fish fry can't be beat. There's a small bar and the... More

Four of us visited the Village Inn after a day of golf. We were hungry and certainly were not disappointed. The beer was cold, drinks well made and the food was excellent. We had both specials and off the menu. The cheddar, broccoli stuffed chicken over rice was amazing. Such flavor!! The burger, beef on weck and chicken with portabella... More

Homemade specials and homemade desserts make this restaurant a must stop whether you're a tourist taking in the wonders of nearby Niagara Falls or a local who appreciates good food in an informal setting.

while it's not the Cheap Gourmets' style to re-review a restaurant without a major makeover, our recent visit, an escape from a withering winter, merits re-telling... a "black & blue" rib sandwich on superb bread, traditional club on the signature sourdough, perfectly set off with a bison brewery bock and finished with a lemon cream pie on a graham crust...

The best soup in WNY! A changing variety and everyone is perfect! Good sandwiches and great burgers. A great place for lunch or light fare. Dinners aren't bad but this is a lunch place or similar food.

I've been here twice and thought the place was great both times. The service was friendly and prompt, the menu is varied, they have a great selection of beers on tap and the food was fantastic. The atmosphere somehow reminds you that you're close to the water...it's not a beach theme, but it has a coastal feel. it's a well-worn,... More

The Village Inn is our favorite restaurant on Grand Island, mainly because of the excellent food at excellent prices. Service is fine. Good beer selection. Specials are posted on a dry-erase board and change daily. Everything is homemade. Soups and desserts are outstanding. Appetizers and entrees are well conceived. Fish fry on Wednesdays and Fridays, in particular panko breaded, is... More
