Food portions are quite large; good bar & lunch menu; chicken bites with garlic sauce & pickle chips are wonderful! Decor, service, & atmosphere really make comfortable.

Village Draft House is a beer friendly restaurant featuring 100 beers on tap. Our extensive menu features award winning hand-pattied burgers, excellent sandwiches, dinners, and appetizers including our signature Pickle Chips. And unlike many of the national chains, we have used non-trans fat oil with Natural Vitamin E and Omega 3's in our kitchen since right after we first opened. We have a large patio with covered outdoor dining.
