Good food and slow service........

We were there a couple of times when we were in Minden. The food was quite good and well priced but the service was definitely an issue. The first time there was confusion with their "new" system and our order didn't get placed. It was at breakfast and we weren't in a hurry so had no issue... read more

I have gone to Village Chalet over the years,and have enjoyed all phases of 3 meals.Waitresses are friendly,you do get great portions,and the atmosphere for Family Resturant is great. You can wine and dine in a dining room with a fireplace,and have privacy.I recommend this eating establishment,special nightly specials are reasonable priced and you never go away hungry. Ike N

I used to come here years ago for lunch and it was great. Now. Service is not good. Food was not very good. Got a burger, came with no condiments and fries took extra time. Sad to see, but this place has gone down hill. Also, never go for breakfast Sunday. Unless you have 2 hours for eggs..

Got up late and found this restaurant in town, advertising ALL DAY BREAKFAST. Good. We went in and decided on the breakfast with 3 peameal bacon, hashbrowns. Also got coffee. As the title said, the peameal was so thin it could have passed for shaved deli meat. I've never had paper thin peameal. And 3 of the tiniest slices. This... More

the food is okay, the service slow, the atmosphere reminds me of a truck stop, nobody knows each other, the friendly banter between customers and staff is gone. not cheerful at all. way over priced. never again.
