“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Based on TA reviews I had lunch here. The place itself is nothing special inside or outside. The waitress was friendly and efficient. The turkey burger had no flavor and the fries were average. With so many dining options this would not be one I'd recommend or revisit.

“DON'T EAT AT THE BAR”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We ate at the Village Way tonight and it was the WORST service I have ever had in my life First of all it took over ten minutes to be noticed to get a drink.. We ordered appetizers and they came out after the dinner we ordered. It just wasn't us either. Another couple ordered appetizers and received their steak and lobster first. They didn't get their potatoes or vegetables until after they ate their dinners and then their appetizers. I have never seen anything like it and the bartender didn't even seem bothered by this. The food was not that good either. Will not be returning Village Way. Shame on you!

“Nice atmophere Great Chef and Specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

We enjoyed our dinners last night at the Village Way. We have been customers for many years. Lovely,Port Jeff location. Had dinner on a Tuesday. We just made it in at 6:00 pm for the early dinner. That manager let us squeak by. Thank goodness someone used their common sense. Sometimes if you go to these early dinners at places you have to be their 15 minutes prior but they were very fair. It makes me want to go back ever so soon.
Had a great broiled Tilapia with spinach, potato, salad and dessert. My husband loved his salmon. Nice loaf of bread. The dessert was very tasty and quite a deal for a early dinner. Chocolate Mouse layer cake. Great chef and generous portions. Highly recommend.

“Lovely sitting outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

We spent the afternoon in Port Jefferson and ofcourse we needed to have lunch.
After looking around at the many places there, we choose this one.
My husband enjoys the pub atmosphere so we added this to his long list.

The diners mostly ate outside. I enjoyed eating outside and people watching on a warm sunny summer day. One group had their small well behave dog sitting under the table. There was a small room inside for a private party going on.
Inside had many tables, mostly wood look with a big bar. There was only one lady's room for the whole place. It was clean and modern. The menu had something for everyone, fish, wraps, sandwiches, fish dinners,pasta, soups, etc. There was a kids menu too.

My husband had his typical chicken wrap with fries. (around $10) It seemed the same as at other pubs. I choose a cajun chicken sandwich (around $10 and worth it). I was alowed to substitute a soup for the fries. That was nice since fries are so not healthy. The white bean soup was interesting and the sandwich was quite good with a nice amount of melted cheese on it.
They served local brewed beer and there were several flavors to choose from.
The wait staff seemed friendly and gave good service. There might be entertainment at night so check it out first.

“village way, a great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

One of the best restaurants that we have been to. The menu, the food, the drinks, the service and the atmophere, all great. Everyone had something different to eat, and every dinner was excellent. Conveniently located in the heart of Port Jefferson. A special place for any occasion. An added bonus, entertainment on Saturday night!!!! And.......a beautiful lady's restroom.
This is a great restaurant. Would recommend it!!!!!
