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
  • "Food so-so. Great beer list. Decor depressing and quite noisy."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This is our second visit to Victoria Gastro Pub. We discovered it by accident. We were in the area running errands and needed to eat. Much to our surprise, we discovered this wonderful restaurant with great food. They have a huge selection of beers and it's listed by country of origin. Their wine list is rather extensive too. If you decide to go, try the poutine. It's decadent and rich and absolutely enjoyable. I had the angus beef burger and it's one one of the best burgers I ever had. It was cooked to perfection and was juicy and tender. VGP will definitely be on our list of go to restaurants."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I live in Silver Spring but VGP is worth the drive! So far I've been twice, for brunch, but I hope to try dinner soon. The brunch menu is creative and unique, although I wish there were just a couple more options. The adult beverage menu is equally special; I particularly enjoyed the Firefly with Rosemary Wings. I haven't used it yet, but I appreciate the availability of an adults-only dining room."

  • "We sat on the patio, with a perfect breeze. Started with an orange concoction from the bar that was tasty without being filling. We all had the lump crab johnnycake as a starter. There was one johnnycake, smothered in lump crab cake, drizzled with a blackberry sweet and sour sauce that had some balsamic hiding in it. We practically licked our plates. Our main was a 10oz pork chop that was cooked to perfection. Tender, succulent, and just as good the second day as it was the first. (I love leftovers.) It was garnished with little bits of country ham and had a nice gravy. Potatoes, zucchini, and summer squash cooked perfectly rounded out the meal. Dessert was a Meyer lemon cream tart with berries. I may go back to get the tart again."

  • "We went during Howard County Restaurant Week and found our choices from the special menu. The gazpacho and pasta were both delicious. Reputation for the duck fries is well earned. Service was above and beyond. We enjoyed our lunch very much."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The first thing I zeroed-in on the menu was the duck poutine, the Canadian specialty, but this version was with shredded duck. There were two sizes to choose from, and the small was more than enough for two people. The fries were perfectly crisp and it was so delicious, but I wouldn't have minded more gravy. We also ordered one of the daily specials, which was squash blossoms grown from the owner's garden, fried and stuffed with goat cheese. The tangy taste of goat cheese was divine, but texture was lacking, since I was expecting a more crispy texture. For our entrees, my friend got the swiss mushroom burger and I got the black angus burger. Since we were full from the appetizer, I only had a bite of the burger. The meat was very tasty."

  • "I had another great experience here. It's one of the best restaurants in Howard county with a unique menu and great selection of drinks."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "It was a great spot to connect with my friend who was in town. Everything was great except our waitress. I think she was just having a rough time. Everyone else was friendly, light hearted and inviting! Cool spot"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Good food and an extensive wine and beer list! The server seemed annoyed when we asked questions about the specials when one of our party members had not yet arrived. I get not wanting to repeat it, but she almost had an attitude! Otherwise, the food was delicious with quality ingredients, many of which they grow themselves! It gets very crowded and loud there on a Friday night and parking is a challenge. You MUST have a reservation or you will wait all night! I had a spinach and strawberry salad with goat cheese (awesome) and a drink called Summer Thyme (lemonade with different rums, muddled blackberries and a sprig of thyme) and it was really good. The beer biscuits were good but butter was definetly needed. Will be back soon!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Large beer list but very mixed quality; For lunch, smallish cob salad with almost no lettuce and bitter bacon - my two companions declared themselves happy with the mushroom hamburger."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Victoria's always comes through. The food is delicious and the service is always top notch! Can't beat the beer list! Just waiting for the dessert, "Mary's gone Bananas" to return! That should be a staple on the menu!!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "This place has a great menu and they execute the food beautifully. Will definitely go back.."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Lunch was delicious! Baby squash blossoms were the appetizer of the day so we tried them. They were outstanding with a light, crisp coating and stuffed with a melted goat cheese filling. The New England Clam Chowder was full of vegetables and tender clams (without any sand). The crab cake was excellent paired with fresh sweet corn kernels in a light lemon cream (not canned creamed corn!). We had two minor complaints: The Arnold Palmers (tea and lemonade) were weak with not much flavor and it was very chilly in the dining rooms. The hostess readily moved us to a warmer location; but, whenever the air turned on, we were very uncomfortable, even wearing long sleeves. Fortunately, sweaters were in the car. Problem solved!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • " This restaurant is perfect for sampling different beer and enjoying delicious food. As long as you are not a vegetarian or peanut allergic, it's a good choice."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Had a wonderful lunch! Went on a Thursday and it was half priced bottles of wine - what a great value. Our server Season was excellent ! Enjoyed the lobster grilled cheese!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Victoria is one of our favorites. Food is consistently great and changes seasonally. Always a few vegetarian options. And a great beer list (really, a book if you count bottles)."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I enjoyed my Birthday lunch celebration for the third consecutive year at Victoria Gastro Pub. The service was outstanding, the food delicious and as usual, the experience at VGP was fantastic! I'll be back again soon!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The drink selection is fantastic! I was definitely let down by the food though. Just not as good as I was expecting I guess. Their duck fat french fries tasted just like normal french fries, too."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "I love Victoria's Gastro Pub. This time, however, my experience was quite off. Our server never introduced himself, so we had no reference for who he was. He was nowhere to be found for an entire twenty minutes after we sat down and twiddled our thumbs. We had to ask the hostess for a server, any server, so we could order out food. We ordered appetizers that took twenty minutes to come out, despite the place not being very busy (empty tables all around us). We were so hungry we had to ask for the biscuits that usually are given (we had to ask for them this time). Food was stellar, as usual. But service was very lacking. Our empty waters sat on the table until some other server took pity on us and refilled our glasses."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "There's no way you can resist the duck fat fries! I tried to be healthy and had a salad for dinner - nothing too exciting about a COBB, but the duck salad is way better. Wine, dessert, coffee = great dinner!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Great food...although limited menu on Father's Day. Beer list was extensive. Prices above what you would spend regularly but worth it for a special occasion."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Excellent food and service at VGP. Never disappoints. Never changes the level of quality in the food. Thank you for a special Fathers Day brunch."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The Gastropub achieves some interesting flavor and texture combinations--I enjoyed my eggs Benedict (on excellent biscuit with lump crab) very much. The server might have been more attentive about coffee cups, though."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Delicious French toast. Great kids menu. Good service. We will be back!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I went into Victoria's Gastro Pub with high expectations; and I was not disappointed. The ambiance was more sophisticated than I expected, but it was perfect for a quiet evening out. The service was on point, and the cuisine was excellent. Their selection of libations was nearly to the point of overwhelming; but the variety was exceptional. This is definitely a gem of an establishment with fabulous food, drink and service. Well worth the drive and money spent on an evening out with friends or that special someone."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The dinner was a solid experience. The food was good but the service was great. Our server was always ready to help and made our night so much better than it was."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We've been to Victoria's multiple times and well worth the drive for us. Took first timers to celebrate their wedding and it couldn't have been a better evening. We sat in one of the private booths in the back. Service was superb. Food was excellent - especially the espresso rubbed grilled flat iron steak with smoked cheddar grits! Tried the cheesecake sampler for dessert - plenty to share! VGP - thank you for a great night out."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "My absolute favorite is the lobster grilled cheese."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Combo of good food and drink - multiple specialty beers on tap and in bottle, full bar with cocktails. Food pretty solid - good burgers, good entrees - menu is not huge, but that's OK - what they do, they do well. Not a huge spectrum of choices for vegetarians, but we had two in the group who seemed quite satisfied. Also had two kids in tow - although it's not really designed for kids, the staff was quite welcoming, there is a kids' menu, and the kids were happy with their choices. We weren't there for brunch, but there did seem to be a reasonable brunch menu as well."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "It was our first year together and we wanted to celebrate by going back to the first place we met. Victoria's was great as usual and very nice to us. After the check came, they gave us a gift card for the next time we come in to dine. We were really surprised and thought this was very nice. We had the charcuterie plate as a starter. I love there homemade pickles! I had the espresso rubbed flat iron steak and my partner had the madeira pasta with grilled chicken. Everything was outstanding. If you go, order the roasted beet salad. I had that on a previous visit to the restaurant. One of my favorites!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Ambience is good, beer/wine list are great and food is good. The only problem is that they have a small menu and it rarely changes. If you go there more than a few times, you will be bored with the menu!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "My friends and I were thoroughly enamored with the decor, the service, the food. Everything was perfect. It was my second visit and I couldn't wait to share the experience with my closest and dearest friends. It was a great time, good food and we'll be back."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "I would go back only for drinks and appetizers in the bar area. The menu was very limited and they were out of one of the items. I liked that they had a room for adults only, especially since we were on a "date night" away from our kids. The beer selection is outstanding and the martini list was good as well. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Four adults in our party found the menu to offer typical pub fare. Experience was right in the middle - everything was average. Two of us ordered the crab cakes - one sandwich and one platter. As far as Maryland crab cakes go, it included more than the average mayo which was not to our liking. Two others had the pasta dish - large portion, not much seasoning. Alot of families around and seemed very family friendly. Not quite the "pub scene" we expected."

  • "Everything was so delicious. The spicy bloody mary was perfect. Highly recommend the duck fries and french toast. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the Maryland craft beers and the great menu items. Service was outstanding!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "First off, try the duck fat fries. You'll forever torment yourself if you leave without trying them, because when you tell other people you ate there, that's all they will talk about. The rest of the menu is fantastic though, so of course start with the fries and then try what else they have to offer. The patio is great on nice days and when you want to enjoy one of their beers or wine outside. "

  • "I was with a group of 6 friends and we had a fabulous time. Great service and it was nice to see my friend Cody behind the bar :)"

  • "Was looking for a change in venue from the typical chain establishment and I found it. Victoria's food and service was great. For a quiet dinner, avoid sitting near the bar area."
