Start the weekend off right by ordering from The Village Squire!

The Village Squire is a staple in two of our ten Elgin area communities! There are two other locations outside of the Elgin area, one in Crystal Lake and one in McHenry.

“The Village Squire is an English pub-style casual dining restaurant, featuring live music and a cozy, unique atmosphere.

“The Village Squire Restaurants have been a part of the Fox Valley since 1974, family owned & operated.
When Paul Karas and his brother George bought The Village Squire in 1974, it had already gone through some major changes. After a major fire destroyed much of the building it was remodeled and renamed The Village Squire. Mostly a dark tavern lit by candles, Paul and George promptly closed it down for a few weeks after they purchased the restaurant in 1974.  And did a little bit of remodeling before reopening in early 1975. Some of our original menu items included the Gyros sandwich, Reuben, beef sandwich, grilled cheese sandwich, souvlaki, steak sandwich, fish sandwich, fish and chips, hamburger, and hot dog. You probably recognize many of these items since many of them are still on our menu today!”
The Village Squire currently has outdoor seating available, and is available for delivery and pick up orders. Customers who love The Village Squire can continue to enjoy their favorite comfort food items from the comfort of their home easily with online ordering!
