Their Saturday night Prime Rib can't be beat (just like Wisconsin's Supper Clubs). . . Oh, and then there's the BBQ Ribs, Fried Shrimp, Chicken Fingers and Dark Chocolate Cake. This is a restaurant for all ages, service is always great, and the manager keeps this place ROCKING. Nothing but quality every time!

We went here for lunch on our second day. It was a cool atmosphere. We're all sports fans and this place definitely has the sports fans environment- bar and grill, lots of TV's, casual, noisy (but not too noisy), etc. The chicken fingers are fantastic! Everyone enjoyed whatever they ordered in our group.

Every time we go we get the Nacho-Rama. It is huge stack and 1/2 order is plenty . If you have a party of 4 then get the full size. Also choice of chicken or beef. I usually get the combo. You almost cant eat anything more after that! Also the chicken fingers are awesome!!

My wife and I ate there on Saturday night. Like the other times I was there always is about a 20 minute wait. Very popular place. Staff was very nice while we waited. Once seated we got our drinks quickly. Waitress gave us just the right of time before taking our order. Did not feel rushed. I had chicken fingers... More

All you can eat succulent lightly battered cod (I could only eat 2 of the 4 pieces initially served), fries, hush puppies, coleslaw and soup or salad for $10 and change. Great ambience and friendly and attentive service.

I dined here on a Saturday night with someone who had the prime rib special and I had the pork medallion special. The prime was rather fatty in parts but my meal for $11.95 was an excellent value. The wait time for the food to be delivered here is long in my opinion, and could be improved.

We went there for the Friday Fish Fry and we weren't let down. It was a very busy place but we got in and seated very quickly. The adults had the all you can eat fish fry and we had plenty. Enough to take some home. One of the kids had the mac and cheese and the other had the... More

I went to Village Tavern last week to have a meal while watching the Chicago Cubs during their post season run. Even though it was crowded I was seated quickly and received a beverage within two minutes. All staff members were extremely busy with customers. This did not stop Andrea from providing with excellent service. I had a chicken fingers... More
