We love going here after church for breakfast -and sometimes on Wednesday evenings for free pie! We've always had great food and great service!

I would have given them a better review, but I could hear the manager complaining to one employee about another employee. She was around the corner in the server area, but we could clearly hear her words. Lexi the server was pleasant. Food was good for the price too.

Owned by Bakers Square and follows the formula. (Try and save room for pie). Good food, wide selection, and heavy emphasis on feeding families. Not a quiet date place at all, but a good place to fill up and get your money's worth.

My friend and I met here in Mar2015 for lunch although I had to have breakfast. Fresh, hot, tasty food served by friendly staff. And the Marcydiner tantrum rating was 5/5=well behaved kids.

Went here on a Sunday for breakfast. The service and food were good. We ended up sitting close to the kitchen and could hear all the arguing going on the time. There kitchen is disfunctional at best, I am amazed they can get the food out as well as they do. It reminded me of an episode of Hells Kitchen... More

Very friendly with delicious breakfast. I hadn't been to a Village Inn in decades and it was just as I remembered.

We love Village Inn Restaurants. Their food is consistently good, they serve breakfast all day long, they are quiet and comfortable! The Johnston, Iowa, restaurant was no exception! Both Steve and Blake gave us excellent service and the food was delicious!

They've got really good pie! Our family really enjoyed the roast turkey dinner with various sides. I enjoyed the Bacon Turkey Avocado melt with pepper jack cheese - Wow! Great flavors. Good coffee too.

Food was hot, fresh and tasty. It was fairly busy on Labor day when we went here. Only issue was the server did not bring Pancakes that were included w/ one of the meals. Wasn't an issue as we had enough food. Waitress was friendly. Food came in a timely manner and it was good.
