This was a last minute decision after having come from a cook out/drinking.We walked around the plaza square and sat for a while and wanted to have a snack and it was 25 feet away so we just went for it and luckily was seated right away with side walk view. The food was great. Highly recommend this place.

We went for brunch recently with our son, daughter in law, and two young granddaughters (1 1/2 & 4). Overall the restaurant was quite busy, but our server was quick to bring us coffee and apple juice for one of the girls. Their pancakes are very large but still fluffy. I always order eggs over medium; otherwise the whites are... More

Had the eggs Benedict for breakfast, the sauce wasn't very good, tasted fake. I also didn't enjoy the home fry potatoes. My sister and her husband always go here and have the bacon and eggs, they love it. If I return I will have to try that!

We ate here on a very busy Saturday night during spring break. The service was a little scattered but, to be fair, the restaurant was slammed with customers. My husband loved the baked cod. My grilled chicken sandwich was fine, but nothing special. The key lime pie was good.

Spent St. Patrick's day here with a large group and had a really good time. Service here can be slow but still had a great time. Great atmosphere and would return.

How many of us will have a champagne w OJ or bloody morning while vacationing? Well this is the place to go to for all you need to do is buy your drink and they give a standard free breakfast, eggs, potatoes, toast and coffee if you want coffee. If i remember correctly it almost everyday of the week. Maybe... More

Love this area and the hospitality at this place was wonderful! Dog friendly too! Eggs Ben was delicious. Tip: if there is a wait at the restaurant, go around corner to bar. Outside seating there too!

We visited on a Friday night when there is live jazz/music outside but we sat inside. The whole area and the restaurant was buzzing and despite great pressure on our server the service was very good. We had the prime rib which was exceptionally good. The restaurant is clearly very popular with locals. We enjoyed our evening there very much.

We ate breakfast at the Village Grille twice during our stay in Lauderdale by the Sea, and both times were great. The service was good, and the staff was some of the most friendly that we encountered during our time in South Florida. We enjoyed the French toast with bacon and omelets with ham and cheese. The food was tasty,... More
