“Great food - horrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Let me start with the good: the food. The food is your typical great Village Inn Dinner. What makes this a bad experience is the service. The server is nice enough. I think she's just young and inexperienced. The manager, however, is worthless. I waited 20 minutes for my server while he just stared at me. It is 11PM and there are 2 other tables. There is no excuse for this. If this location gets a new night manager, this will never fall below a 5 star review.

“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Had dinner there, and then breakfast the next day. Food was great, service was excellent, and the premises clean!

“I think this is the best location in Omaha.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Village Inn food is pretty average, but the staff here are very accommodating if you want to be rowdy in the back room after a school concert or stay late working on homework...

“If you go home hungry it's your fault.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2011

Food is very good. Entrees come with a trip to the salad bar, soup and spaghetti. Their liver patee is very good. You can get it as a side in the salad bar. The steak was very good, the Italian feast, not so much. But I was never hungry afterward.

“Wonderful - haven't been here in years and am wondering why not!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2010

Waitress was training a new gal and they were so efficient. We all had All American Crush hamburgers with pepper-jack cheese and left stuffed, with french fries still on the plate! Food great, decor fine, we were well satisfied with the value we got, only disappointed that we had NO room for a slice of their pies.
