Prices are reasonable. Portions are large. Service is good. Can recommend the Bacon-Cheddar Grilled Chicken Sandwich, The Pimiento Cheese Bacon Burger, and especially the awesome Chocolate Torte Dessert. Drinks are good, too. They pour a proper pint of Guiness!

Whenever I'm in B'ham, I make it a point to eat at the Village Tavern. The atmosphere is wonderful with large booths and perfect lighting. It's typically busy but there is plenty of room to enjoy a conversation as the noise is no issue whatsoever. The food is superb! I particularly enjoy the fresh salmon dinner...eat it almost every time.... More

Village Tavern is an all time favorite. Great drinks..fun atmosphere. They have lots of variety on the menu..but all really good. Our favorite is the grilled trout and grilled salmon. Can always count on good food and great service.

Don't be put off by the tavern label. This restaurant serves a wide variety of excellent cuisine. Our group of eight split several appetizers and they were all delicious. Their steak was incredible. Fantastic wine offerings as well. What a nice surprise!!

Our first one eating here, service and food was great! We were taken to our table right away ( we had a reservation ) and our server Brett was awesome. He was very attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and he never allowed our glasses to go empty. By it being Valentine's Day, I honestly expected service to be slow, but... More

The Tavern is very popular especially on weekends, so make a reservation or expect to wait. On the plus side, seating in the bar is first come first serve. Bar tales are very large and the menu is the same, so take your pick. The tacos are among the best ever, peanut butter and chicken, yum, with pleasant back bite... More
