“Great deck overlooking the bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Had dinner here 2 nights and sat on the deck. Had the perch both nights as it was so good, but the food coming out of the kitchen looked great.

“Good food but bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

We were there August 8th and we had a great meal, but our waitress (short blondish brown hair, might have been one of the head girls) was very rude. They seemed a little busy, but the other girls, seemed to be fine. Our girl was not good, not friendly. She threw our salads at us, did not put them in front of us, just threw them on the corner of the table. We should have walked out right there and then. I am a former waitress and understand when people are busy, but no reason to be rude. As time went on, she was a little more friendly, seeing the tip might be coming soon. I am a big tipper and only left 10%. More than I should have. Good food though!!!

“Good food, music and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

What could be better than good beverages, food, service and music! Not much in my opinion. The servers are always cheerful and helpful even if swamped. I like to go here on weekends during the season for live music.

“Only knock is the cost...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Have been a frequent diner at The Villa every time we travel to Frankfort, which is usually two per year. Recently ate there with my three sons for a late lunch or early dinner. The food and service really stood out. The only knock on the experience I can mention is the cost. It's a tad high, but because of its location that is expected. This time around they were running a special on a NY Strip and Perch dinner for $19.99. The steak was cooked perfectly and the fish were very big pieces and tasted great! Had a bowl of chili to start, but it was simply too spicy for my taste. Also ordered was a Philly Cheesesteak, Bacon Cheeseburger and Chicken Strips. No complaints! The server was friendly, knowledgeable and checked on us often. If in Frankfort, I highly recommend the Villa Marine Bar for your dining.

“Very pleasant on the deck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We've been to the Villa Marine Bar numerous times with the family. The children as well as adults enjoyed the food. We've had pizzas, cajun prime rib, and various sandwiches.
