A word from Victoria Gastro Pub
Rated by Baltimore Magazine as the “Best 'Burbs Bar” and a “Brunch Hot Spot”, this is an inviting Pub that will surprise you from the moment you walk through the revolving door. The international cuisine is filled with Chef Joe Krywucki’s twists on classic pub fare. From simple favorites like the Kobe Burger, Lobster Grilled Cheese or the Fish & Chips, to fresh, flavorful entrees that change seasonally, this is a casual Pub that takes its food very seriously. The food is complemented by an international beer list of 24 draughts and over 200 bottles, a focused yet eclectic wine list, fun seasonal cocktails, and a full bar. The warm, inviting dining rooms are filled with antique touches that add to the unique feel. The Peruvian Walnut lined Pub Area is seated on a first-come, first serve basis. All this forms Howard County’s first Gastro Pub! Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We've been hearing about the beer selection and finally got to Victoria Saturday evening. We had a 6p reservation and three of the four of us were seated immediately. As the driver, I spent 15 minutes looking for a parking spot and ended up parked in the far end of the McDonald's parking lot. This is a dangerous thing to do as there are Patron Parking Only signs in every business' lot adjacent to Victoria, but I had no choice. Victoria would be smart to contract with another business for excess parking during evening hours. Bottom line, beers start at $8 and up, which is a bit high. Our server was indifferent towards us, but not to the point of being rude. I never get one drink that I ordered, but did not charge for it either."

  • "We meet here the week before several holidays, family from north,and from south, it is a midway point. The staff is lovely-got there for 3 pm, had some beers and appetizers on patio. Our reservation for dinner at 6:15 turned out to be larger than original plan, and the staff moved bar tables together and seated all 11 of us. Very nice."

  • "The place to go for a gourmet burger and fries. Six friends went on a quest for a great hamburger and decided to give Victoria's Gastro Pub a try. Well, on a scale from 0-10 there were five 9.0s and one 8.5. The burgers were excellent, particularly the Wagyu burger. In addition, the fries topped it off by being great too."

  • "April 2014: This was my 2nd experience at the Victoria Gastro Pub. I had been there for brunch before on a weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I went there for lunch with three coworkers during the week. The food was excellent. Our waiter was very good and attentive, and because one of our party had some religious dietary constrictions, they modified the ingredients in an omelette to meet his needs. Also, the owner Victoria came over to chat with our table, which I found very welcoming and friendly. If you happen to be a bit of a beer connoisseur they have some great beers and unusual beers. All in all, my two experiences at this restaurant have been very good. Try the duck fries - with a Bloody Mary or a good beer."

  • "Shout out to our waiter, Tom! He definitely took care of us really well. Bartender was awesome and made our drinks just the way we liked. Poutine fries were absolutely beyond words. Burgers done to perfection, and even the pasta was amazing. I couldn't recommend this place more."

  • "I had the lobster and grits for brunch along with duck fat fries for the table. The fries were delicious with bits of rosemary on them. The lobster and grits were especially delicious and I ate every bit. An equal amount of grits, lobster, and mushrooms, it was great. My family had the crab cake sandwich, American dip, and burger and everyone said it was good."

  • "This is our 2nd time coming to VGP but first time with a reservation. I'd highly recommend getting a reservation. This place fills up quick and is always packed. Amazing food and incredible drink selection. If you cant get a reservation, you can always wait by the bar and usually a couple tables open up. Will be going back soon!"

  • "Even though I was disappointed in the duck entree (I usually love duck, but this did not wow), everything else was excellent! The duck fat fries are amazing and the wine and cocktails fabulous. My husband's burger was SO good! Great atmosphere and service too. I've also had brunch there and loved it."

  • "My wife & I have been enjoying Victoria's since the end of 2012. It continues to get better. Whether it is in the dining room or the bar/lounge we always enjoy the food, extensive beverage selection and the ambiance. The staff seem to genuinely enjoy working there and they take great care of their guests. That is no small feat, a tip of the cap to ownership/management."

  • "We went to Victoria Gastro Pub to celebrate my wife’s birthday. This was our first time visiting. We were a little anxious as to what to expect. Upon arrival the hostess recognized my wife’s birthday and indicated a quiet sitting area was reserved specially for us (3 adults,2 children). The restaurant has a nice bar area, however we were seated far from the action in a more quiet and secluded area, which we loved. Our server was beyond OUTSTANDING. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and the extensive beer and wine list. He was very accommodating and diligently in accommodating our requests and making my wife feel special during her birthday dinner. The food was delicious and delivered timely. We will definitively recommend this place!"

  • "Went with friends for brunch - they had their almost 11-month-old and we had our 3-month old. We were seated comfortably with a high chair for our friends' daughter and something to put the car seat on for our daughter. Food was delicious, loved my mimosa and lobster & grits - would be hard not to order the same thing again the next time. They even gave the babies cute bibs to keep! We will gladly return."

  • "i suggested this restaurant to my friends because it was the halfway point for all of us. the bar was very loud, but it was a friday night. i was nervous we wouldn't be able to hear each other, but we were seated in a dining room and it was amazingly sound proofed from the bar. Our waiter was knowledgable, friendly and attentive. the food was very good, we all enjoyed what we ordered. and our cocktails were yummy! thank you for making it a lovely evening for some old friends."

  • "My wife and I had lunch today, and we both had the huevos rancheros. Sharon, our waiter, was a very attentive and informed service person. The restaurant was not crowded since we came early, and we had a nice chat with her before ordering. She went over the specials and an item not on the menu. We went with the huevos. They arrived very quickly. The presentation was spectacular. The flavor of the tortilla, black beans,Charrizo, and guacamole was superb. But... having lived in New Mexico for nearly a decade, we were disappointed in the lack of any "heat" (spice) whatsoever. Definitely "gringo-ized" for the East Coast. However, we knew we weren't in Albuquerque , and had a very nice lunch!"

  • "We have been to Victoria's several times for lunch and dinner and always enjoyed it. This is the first time we went for brunch and it was excellent!"

  • "I'd been to Victoria for many delightful dinners and girls nights out, but a friend recently recommended trying brunch there. My hubby and I went with another couple. Great food and great service. I had the Lobster and Grits. Wow! Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed their meals and gobbled them up. I love the ambience, too; feels like eating in an old country B&B which is also really hip."

  • "Solid menu. Duck fat fries were tasty, but not special. Roast beef dip was delicious as was the chocolate dessert. Went with friends and everyone enjoyed their meals. The lobster grilled cheese was very tasty."

  • "Had a first date there, and EVERYTHING was wonderful! Megan, our server, was a gem to talk to and was prompt with everything we ordered! She was so professional and yet warm and enthusiastic at the same time. Loved the atmosphere, and the food was to die for. The only thing that I noticed was the noise level at times made it rather difficult to talk across a table. Perhaps they could invest in some noise reducing wall or ceiling material?"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "The service and the meal were very good. We had the steak salad, mussels and charcuterie, all of which were excellent. A glass of wine we ordered was a little bit off- it was replaced with a fresh glass immediately. The place filled up pretty quickly even though it was a Monday evening. We've never been disappointed with our experiences there."

  • "We are always looking for new places to dine. This was a pleasant surprise. We started with the pear salad, which was very good, we had Arctic Char and Fish and Chips for entrees. The Arctic Char was very good in both presentation and portion size. The fish & chips, unlike others I've had, was moderately breaded which made it lighter than most. The portion size was just right. The only downside we had was it seemed that the tables were to close to one another. That said we'll put it on our list of keepers!"

  • "They continue to serve up excellent bar menu items and drinks. The weather was a major factor this week in their dinner menu offerings; which is understandable, but very disappointing nonetheless. Missing a major food delivery caused them to offer a very limited menu for Valentine's Day. Perhaps I should've called ahead to find out about menu changes. I was just hoping for something a notch higher on a special occasion. I think I'll stick to just coming here for happy hour, or a late glass of wine or my favorite Belgian beer."

  • "Was pleasantly surprised by the food and the atmosphere. Had expected usual bar/pub food but found excellent variety on the menu. Food was well prepared. fresh tasting, and delicious. The server was cheerful, helpful and gave just the right amount of attention - when needed and no more. Have already recommended the Victoria Gastro Pub to several friends. Nice to have a non- chain restaurant in Columbia!"

  • "This restaurant is laid out very well to accommodate various size parties in various types of settings. The wine, beer, and cocktail list is more extensive than most and the quality of the options is top notch. The food at Victoria's Gastro Pub (VGP) is eclectic, creative, and amazing. The staff is very attentive and helpful every time I come to VGP. Most importantly though to me, is the fact that the ownership is very engaged with their establishment, staff, menu, and most importantly the patrons. I have been to VGP about 12 times or more and have not only seen, but been greeted by the owner nearly every single time. I now go out of my way when travelling in the area to make sure I can stay near by and have dinner &/or lunch here."

  • "Sat in the restaurant. Our table was not too small but was so close to the table next to us it was like sharing a meal with strangers. They were busy but our drinks and first course took a long time. Our waiter was nice but had to keep comming over to assure us our orders were "comming soon". My sandwich was ok, smaller than I expected for the price and not many fries, my friend got the risotto with shrimp and it was very tasty but also not a large portion for the price. We started being able to chat with each other but by the end we were almost unable to hear each other which made our proximity to the next table even more uncomfortable. Overall, great drink menu, decent food but I wanted more bang for my buck and a little more privacy."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "...its a great place to grab a drink or bite at the bar, or meet friends. Good meal for a decent price. Crowded tables but once you are seated, it's not so bad. Would love to see a slight change in the menu or specials to keep it interesting."

  • "Went for brunch with the family--the service was excellent, as was the food. When we first visited Victoria (shortly after it opened), we were put off by the cost and the small plates. There has been a marked improvement."

  • "Could not find anything on menu without dairy (even eggs because they are strictly made with cream). I asked for eggs without dairy and it took several attempts on my part before the manager convinced the cooks to make me a plain egg. I was told they could make over easy without dairy but not scrambled. That left me confused since I regularly make eggs scrambled by mixing them for about ten seconds. I'm not sure why it was initially an issue."
