I was immediately greeted by Ronnie, an assistant manager, whose warm and welcoming manner began what was to become one of my finest experiences in a restaurant. My server, Ashley, was excellent with her attentiveness to details like extra tomato in my omelette, and chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream. Troy, the chef, was extraordinary, with his culinary skills and... More

Actually ended up here on a 'kids eat free' day (Monday and Tuesday), and this is where our kids want to go for any meal, breakfast or dinner, to eat the Vill-Inn Funny Face kids meal. They love the food, the adult's pocketbook loves the final bill, so we'll keep frequenting this place when we're in town.

The food here is pretty decent. Very typical restaurant for the after church crowd. The breakfast menu is probably there best menu to go off of, and is also what they seem to cook best off of. J would recommend the Nashville bowl

Food was good. I can see why the restaurant is empty though. The wait staff all seems to be related and we're having some kind of family issue. They where all piled in a corner swearing up a storm about he said, she said...... Our first waitress was very good till she went home. All down hill from there.

I'm not sure if it is always a problem but they were short staffed the morning we were here. Our waitress was trying hard to keep up and kept apologizing for slow service. The food was OK, breakfast is hard to screw up.

This Village Inn is like the other Village Inns (or is it Villages Inn?). They have decent food. Nicer than Perkins or Denny's. A variety of foods at all hours of the day or night. On the date of our visit we had eggs Benedict and the California skillet. Both were good. What set our visit apart was our wait... More

Food was just ok. Our server was not to good. Our order was messed up and never brought us syrup for the pancakes...had to ask another worker to bring us some. Probably wouldn't go back. I think Perkins or Denny's is a much better choice for us next time.

This place has good food, breakfast all day, good servers who are nice but it is bland food, so if you have a spicy palette I wouldn't recommend this place.

We went for breakfast on Memorial Day with a large group. We were seated quickly, had a very friendly and competent waitress, and received our food with minimal wait and perfect accuracy. I don't recommend the caramel iced coffee unless you like sugar water, though. :-)
