“Very good food and service.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We really like the food and service. Our waitress was great, and very attentive. I had one of the best burgers ever, and the fries were perfect. Nice and crisp. Delicious! We'll keep coming back here on Memorial Day weekend.

“Didn't meet my expectations”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

I'm a huge fan of breakfast and have wanted to try breakfast food at all the restaurants that it is served at in Canandaigua. I chose to do the breakfast buffet and it fell short of my expectations. The employees didn't refill the food when it was gone on the buffet so I had limited choices. The food was bland and tasteless, probably because it was just getting heated up still, hours after it was made. It was also fairly expensive for a breakfast buffet...I'd skip this one.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

This is a diner so don't expect more than that. I have only had breakfast at the Villager and it was fine.

“One of the BEST Reuben sandwiches around!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Wherever I go if a reuben is on the menu, I will order it. The reuben sandwich at the Villager is without a doubt one of the TOP TEN sandwiches I have ever had! It has the perfect ratio of corned beef, sauerkraut and dressing tucked between slices of Marble Rye. I had to take half home, but it was just as good if not better a few hours later as a midnight snack!
