The Roanoke Village Inn has been a Roanoke institution for over 60 years and continues to offer quality food in a fun cozy atmosphere. A great place to go for a casual dinner or to meet friends for drinks, it’s been around for generations and it continues its vibrant existence with a new venture...family dining! This great spot has been a favorite for the parents but other than take-out, the kids have had to wait for their 18th or 21st birthdays to be able to enjoy this neighborhood gem. Not anymore.
The Village Inn has redecorated its upstairs room to be family friendly and smoke free. The kids menu features such yummy kid friendly items like chicken fingers, burgers, mac & cheese and corndogs. Owner and mother of three, Jodie Hunnicutt admits, “I love being able to have families here now – my own kids love it. We’ve enclosed the bar, added new tables, new pictures on the walls and televisions. The room is great for those who’d like to enjoy their dinner with more of a restaurant atmosphere than a bar. It’s the best of both worlds!” There are two entrances to the upstairs family room: one through the restaurant’s back entrance on 2nd Street and the other door side by side with the main entrance in front on Main Street which is well marked as the family room entrance. Just a reminder of the Indiana excise laws – only kids 18 and up with their parents are allowed to enter through the main door.
For those who may not have been to the Village Inn for awhile, it is now open on Sundays with some great Sunday specials; the bar and dining area were redecorated and there are more renovations in the works; and if it’s really been awhile since you’ve been here, they now take credit cards too. A completely new kitchen was installed last year and the menu has adopted some healthier options.
Many of the preparations include grilled, blackened or broiled in addition to the fried. Still the number one favorite item on the menu is the haddock with the steaks a close second though there are those who think dinner doesn’t get any better than their barbecued one pound pork chop. Come in and see what is your favorite. With a variety of delicious entrées, early bird and nightly specials, you’ll have plenty to chose from.
The Village Inn is open Sunday – Thursday 11am-10pm; (Family Room 4pm-9pm) and Friday & Saturday 11am – midnight (Family room 4pm – 10pm.) Reservations are accepted for groups of 5 or more and parties for 20 or more with a minimum two week notice.
