“Great for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was a great find. It is on the waterfront in Venetian Village overlooking the bay providing a great view for your dining experience. We went for lunch and decided to try their pub burger, as it was described and something special. It was! If you need a break from the wonderful seafood of this region, give their burger a try, you will not be disappointed.

We also returned for dinner and tried a seafood combination platter. It was great and each item was cooked to perfection. This was a great bargain compared to some of the upper-end restaurants that are nearby. It is also more casual in atmosphere. We highly recommend this restaurant for a less formal evening.

“Used to be Great!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We are year-round Naples residents who have been going to the Village Pub for years. You can't beat its waterfront location and casual atmosphere so we've been known to bring out of town guests here quite often. This weekend, we brought friends who were visiting from out of the area and while they enjoyed the views, they were disappointed with the food and service by iur lunch at the Village Pub. Our server was not attentive and our portions were skimpy (especially for the price). We ordered two Reuben sandwiches and the amount of corned beef on our sandwiches was meager at best. One guest ordered fish and chips and he was still hungry afterwards. And the fourth guest had nachos, which he said were underwhelming. This used to be a great place but it's no longer worth the price or the wait.

“Come to eat, stay and return for the entertainment”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

A very pleasant place for lunch or dinner at the Venetian Village with a view of the Bay, nice selection of food and drink to suit any taste or mood. However, you should make sure to go on Thursday, Friday or Saturday to enjoy its best feature; a harp-guitar player. Andy Wahlberg plays in the dining area just by the patio door so you can have a view and entertainment. He has an extremely varied repertoire and encourages requests. HIs humor adds to the atmosphere and definitely raised the level of our evening there with out-of-town friends. He was happy to answer questions about his instrument and the history as he visited with guests during his break. An all around pleasant experience that left a smile on our faces all the way home.

“Horrific Service from "Hello" or Lack Thereof”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

The Village Pub likely would have received 3 to 4 stars, had the Hostess at lunch today not been the rudest, inflexible, most unaccomodating person I have encountered in a very long time.

She snapped her answers at us about seating availability, and when we pushed her further actually said "Are you always this annoying?" we were totally shocked by this. At that moment, a younger wait staff member, seemingly unaware of our situation with this worthless-excuse for a hosetsss, told us our table was ready - the hostess seemed infuriated by this, but could do little about it.

The food and atmosphere was good enough, but I can't even imagine why this place would have someone (I use that term lightly) like this smug, persnickity, pretentious and horrible woman minding their afternoon lunch service - or even associated with their restaurant.

“Enjoyable atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Very much enjoyed my first visit to the Village Pub. We sat outside overlooking the water on a nice, warm evening. I had the tilapia which was excellent. We also had the peel and eat shrimp which was fabulous. Prices were reasonable. Nice location within the Venetian Village within walking distance to our condo. Will definitely return.
