“Better than it looks from the outside!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We turned up at the Village Tavern without a booking so our party of 4 had to settle for the bar area to have some dinner. However, we were not disappointed with our waiter, Patrick, who was extremely pleasant and determined to ensure that we had an enjoyable visit. The cheeseburger (blue cheese) was cooked extremely well and the tuna salad, while a little expensive for what it was, was nevertheless very tasty. We would certainly recommend a visit to the Village Tavern but make sure you book a table if you want to guarantee eating in the restaurant area. While it was fine for us, the bar area might not be to everyone's cup of tea.

“Great food & Service”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We ate at the Village Tavern 3 times in May/June when in Scottsdale and staying at Gainey Suites Hotel right next door. This is a very busy restaurant, and we found the food and service to be excellent each time. We sat outside on the patio twice for dinner and once inside the restaurant. When you walk into the building, you are looking at the bar area which is quite small, so we were surprised when we asked to be seated and were taken to the HUGE dining room. The menu is varied and prices are reasonable. Delivery can be arranged to Gainey Suites Hotel but not sure if they have other delivery service. We will definitely return.

“Love this place”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We are down in Scottsdale for several weeks at least once a year and this is one place we go to more than once. Nothing like a Fat Tire and colorado chips in the their outdoor area (we go there in the winter). We have eaten dinner here too and the food is above average for pub type food. The service is invariable very good.

“Consistently happy”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Thankfully, there are more positive reviews than negative for this restaurant. I have no idea where the negativity comes from? We eat at the Village Tavern at least twice a month (we cook at home a lot) and have NEVER been disappointed. It is not a a "special occasion" restaurant where you spend $200+ per couple for a piece of steak or seafood that you can prepare better at home; we have been there, done that. We are so "done" with being ripped off at over-priced, non-eventful restaurants. We go to the Village Tavern for consistently good food, exceptional staff, extremely reasonable prices, and a neighborhood-friendly atmosphere. This restaurant is the last, lone survivor of many, many restaurant attempts at The Shops at Gainey Village. They have survived and are consistently busy because they are good!!! The success of any company, whatever the industry, emanates from the top. The GM here is spectacular and he surrounds himself with spectacular people. Do not listen to the naysayers. Order the ribs or the caesar salad with salmon or the turkey burger, etc. You will not be disappointed. Many good wishes for continued success at the Village Tavern!!!

“Found by Accident”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We decided just to drive and look for a place to eat. Came across the Village Tavern and decided to stop. The service was awesome and the food was great. We were surprised at the atmosphere. We honestly thought we would find a little bar but this place was classy and had a great atmosphere.
The food was great and we had absolutely no complaints. We will definitely return.
