Great place to go for a variety of food. Large menu and plenty to pick from. I've been coming here for the last 30 years when my children were young. Now I take my grandchildren. The popcorn is always a hit and children's menu too.

We don't get to eat out much and going here I was excited. That came crashing down as we received our food. It tasted awful only to find out it was microwaved. That explained the taste and I was so disappointed. We never went back.

We go here quite often. The menu is very full. Lots of choices no matter what you like you can find it. The service is good. They give you free popcorn which can be good if you have kids with. The salads are generous. The atmosphere is medieval with lots of character. An all around family restaurant

The food was good the coleslaw was great (but didn't look like much) very tasty. Food was very reasonably priced, less than 15 per person with a beverage. Seemed to be a favorite of the... More

Really happy with the food and the service....Free popcorn at the table and free wi-fi. Really happy with the specials and the service, but I can't figure out why they call this the "Village Squirrel". Not a squirrel to be seen inside with any of the decorations. They do have a red squirrel-like image next to the name in their... More

Not from the Elgin area, I was visiting the Koi Sanctuary and was looking for a place for lunch. Saw the Village Squire from the road and pulled in. My first experience and it was excellent. Chloe my waitress was outstanding with suggestion.
