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

I'd give it 4.5 if TripAdvisor would let me. Of all things to mention, the kids menu was outstanding and had real food that didn't include chicken nuggets. My wife had a ribeye cooked rare that came out perfectly, and the crab dip appetizer was outstanding (especially the bread that came with it). I had salmon which was cooked well,... More

I was in Birmingham on a business trip. My coworkers recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint! My steak was juicy and tender and my lemon drop martini was the best I've ever tasted!

Recently dined here for the first time. Excellent Service, Food and Atmosphere. Greeted upon entering the door, we were sat in a big comfortable booth, and greeted by a professional server. We dined on a variety of things from the menu, including the wonderful Double Decker Cheesecake for dessert. Cannot say enough, being a food and wine snob that I... More

Every time I go to the village tavern I always have a bad experience. My food is always wrong, cold, or I just get a bad server. I keep coming back to give them more chances so I decided to come Saturday for brunch and it was a little busy. We got put on the wait and while we were... More
