I have been here twice now. The first time was by myself and the second time I met a friend for breakfast a couple of days before Christmas. Both times were for breakfast. The food was really, really good. I have a ham and cheese omelette with hash browns and hollandaise sauce on the side for my omelette. It was all really good. I think it is the best hollandaise sauce I have had in a long time. My friend had the eggs benedict and said it was really good as well.

As far as decor, nothing to write home about. The booths and tables and chairs are really old and scratched up. There was a fire in the fireplace, though and that was nice. Service was good.

I love to go out for breakfast and the Village Inn is definitely now on my rotation!

Good time sports bar trying to be a restaurant. Don't fall for it. Really pleasant server tried hard to do everything right. The food didn't measure up. Fish and chips were very greasy with a puddle of grease left on the paper at the bottom of the basket-no plates.

Open under new management but we never knew the difference since it was our first time. My chicken caeser wrap and very good and the french fries were way above average. My wife had chicken nachos and was less than impressed.
