Victoria Gastro Pub
great food as alwaysI just can't seem to get a good table here. always end up stuck out in the aisle. but you can't complain with the food and drinks. top notch.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday celebration!My boyfriend and I went to celebrate his birthday with my mom and his parents. The atmosphere was great. It was quiet enough to have good conversation around the table without having to shout. The food is AMAZING!!!!! Every time!!!! And he got a birthday surprise. We will definitely be back!!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeI appreciate the extra effort from Cynthia in having "Best Wishes" written on the plate of dessert for our coworker who was getting married.
It was very easy and convenient to make reservations online.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great food!Great service and great food! Loved the artwork on the walls as well!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily high school graduation dinneWe had a very nice night at Victoria's. The meals and desserts were yummy and it was made special for us. Great family photo taken in front of the gorgeous old doors. The only concern was I asked specifically for a nice table for a graduation dinner when I called and we were seated in a booth next to kitchen door when we arrived however they nicely moved us after our request and it was great after that.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Bar, Good FoodI have been here several times. The beer list is very large with lots of choices. The food is very good but the menu is limited.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFun lunch spotI had lunch on a weekend and really enjoyed it. It is a bit on the loud side but not in a bad way- just not a place for quiet or romantic conversation but an energetic feel. Service and food were great! Kids and adults enjoyed it especially the duck-fat fries. Seems kids were seated in one area which I appreciate and I am sure those without kids do too.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBiscuits are amazing. TroutBiscuits are amazing. Trout special was excellent. Great beer selection.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time -- I'm a Fan!Found this pub on the way back from Baltimore to Silver Spring and will be back. Great ambiance, food and beer! The lobster cheese sandwich is a winner!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!Visited here with out if town friends. The food was great, the booth was perfect for chatting and catching up, and the drinks were tasty.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great Food!The food rates a great to outstanding. I had the trout and it was very flavorful. The beer list is amazing. I have had the same wait person several times and find them adequate but not exceeding my expectations.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy experience was outstanding.My experience was outstanding. Everything from the food to the service was exceptional. We will be returning to this restaurant very soon!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet BrunchGood quality food though I was a bit surprised with the off-the-shelf (store bought) crackers and chips used as side items for the entrees.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service and fantasticOutstanding service and fantastic food. Great all around.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA quality beer list, priceyThe menu and drink list are very VERY well built. But because of the location, Columbia, everything is premium. You can get the same beer 20 min away for 40% less. That being said, Victoria's is very nice and the poutine is lovely! addicting would be a good word. If a premium dining experience, nice decor and a fantastic beer selection (for its size) are your thing, give Victoria's a shot.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FOOD and BEER selection!I had dinner with some of my close friends at this restaurant/pub. The food was great from usual bar food to full dinner options. There was beer from several countries and several american microbreweries. It was somewhat pricey though for special occasions this place will hit the spot. The service was great. Can't wait to go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pub food, awesome beerGreat pub food, awesome beer list. Would definitely visit again if back in the area. Ate here two nights in a row and service was fantastic the first night and the complete opposite of that on the second night. Guess the service level really depends on the waiter.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good dining experienceThere with old high school friends that don't see very often, so we had a lot of catching up to do. The waiter did not rush us, which was greatly appreciated.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat burgers, awesome beerAmazing selection of beers from around the world, terrific angus and wagyu burgers cooked perfectly. Try the poutine, a French Canadian heart attack on a plate of duck fat fries and gravy incredible!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat bar scene if traveling alone!Whenever in the Columbia area I gravitate to this resteraunt/bar as recommended by my hotel. I have never had a bad meal or time. Traveling for business, it is not always fun eating alone, but sitting at this bar, the bartendars and other patrons are typically very friendly. I enjoyed my meal and drinks (happy hour half price Tuesday martini and good wine special). Not truly a martini type of person but the friendly company around me certainly was so I had a Victoria (Cucumber gin and muddled cucumber, et al.). Had an enjoybale time and the free appetizers passed around mad eme want to come back and order them next time. Duck fat fires & stuffed mushrooms, wow! Shared the mussels with a another guest and enjoyed the duck! Love this palce!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMToo Cold. It was a cool nightToo Cold. It was a cool night and they had the A/C on. We had to move to another table where it wasn't much warmer.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the lobster grilled cheeseHad the lobster grilled cheese and was pleasently surprised by the big pieces of lobster. Root vegetables were a little too crunchy. would have preferred them cooked a little more.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck fat french fries wereDuck fat french fries were delicious and the beer menu was insanely awesome. Will take Tori's recommendation and try the poutine next time I go to Victoria's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat! But needs healthy choices.Unfortunately I'm trying to lose weight so there are normally no good food options here, especially if I'd like an alcoholic beverage. (I love their Hollywood martinis when they're available.) But their fish entree this time was a delicious grilled rainbow trout with asparagus and yukon potatoes. My husband enjoyed his crab cake sandwich and as usual found a couple of beers that he really wanted to try for his beer club membership. VGP is great and if they offered some healthy alternatives, we'd be there much more often.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck-fat Fries are StellarI had only been once before, meeting a friend for beers, duck fat fries, and appetizers. We actually dined this time and had nice meal with friends. The bar is a more interesting place - aesthetically and socially than the dining rooms as it feels more like a pub in the British tradition. The rest of the area...not so much. The food was very good: I had the French Dip (although a little on the stingy side); two burgers at the table and one Rainbow trout special. The duck fat fries here are stellar and a must do with one of the pubs many selections of ales. I think if I go back it will be for the bar, the beers, the fries and the decent selection of apps. However, VGP is a nice place for any dining occasion.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYUMMYHad a business lunch at this restaurant and was VERY impressed. Food was wonderful and so was the atmosphere. I will definitely be back - especially on my own time, so I can sample the adult beverages too.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVictoria's has a deliciousVictoria's has a delicious brunch menu and the service is outstanding as well. If you have never tried Victoria's, your are missing a treat!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Sunday was my firstEaster Sunday was my first visit to VGP. They offered a limited menu on that date due to the holiday, but the choices were quite varied and interesting. Service was excellent. I enjoyed my meal, and would not hesitate to return. Quite impressed with the beer and wine list, as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat beer; good dnnerWe had an early dinner and had time to sample from the great beer selection. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. We were seated in a room with no one else and would have liked to have been in the bar area but it was full.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMUsually we have a great dinningUsually we have a great dinning experience at VGP but this time the sat to many groups in the same section at the same time. This caused erratic service at best. The waiter while trying his best kept asking one of us what we wanted (drinks appt etc...) but forgot to ask the other and would run off with only half our order. He would then have to go get the other part of our meal. It seemed he was flustered and trying to move quickly but missing orders. This combined with to many guests being sat at the same section at the same time ended up causing a slower than usual service at VGP. The food was good. We ordered simple tonight not opting for specials and the food was great as is the norm. We will dine here again it is a great spot.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food, nice diverse menu.good food, nice diverse menu. Too many tables crammed into dinning area.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, drinks, and serviceIn a town full of chain restaurants, Victoria Gastro Pub is unique, has delicious food, amazing cocktails, and a huge list of beers on tap. Great for big groups, a romantic evening, or just late-night food and cocktails. One of the best restaurants in Howard County!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a wonderful eveningIt was a wonderful evening out with friends. The goal was to find some good martinis and Victoria's fit the bill very well. My husband and I are on a paleo diet, so the food choices were a bit restrictive, but Victoria's menu has never been very large. I ended up with a hamburger (no bun) which was cooked perfectly, substituting vegetables for fries was not a problem at all.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and AtmosphereVictoria's is one of my favorite places to eat. I recently met my family there, with two kids under 13. When we walked in the bar was loud and busy, but when the waitress took us to the other side of the restaurant, the noise level was low-moderate. The place is surprisingly kid friendly for the sophistication and energy it has. They do have a kids menu, and will seat you far away from the bar. However, they did not have any crayons/paper for them to draw on. This is one thing I would change. Also, the drink list is unique and quite impressive. For non drinkers they have great peach iced-tea. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART, the food is delicious. I highly suggest one of the Wagyu burgers with duck fat fries or the lobster grilled cheese.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThumbs UpIt truly is a great place to go. Perfect for business or pleasure.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Victoria's PubEnjoyed St. Patrick's Day with my grandmother, mother, sister and two aunts at Victoria's. Reservation was for 5pm but we arrived 15 minutes early and were seated right away. The entire staff were friendly and outgoing. The food was wonderful and the desserts were incredible. Everyone had a marvolous time. We would definitely recommend it.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend VGPMet for a business lunch. We both had the crab cake sandwich, which was probably the best I've ever had. Or waiter was very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend VGP.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to the hypeI'd been reading about the place in local magazines. It seems unlikely to have great food in a corner lot next to a McDonald's but the place was packed, the good and service were excellent and it lived up to all the reviews I read. Burgers and pork tenderloin were delicious and perfectly cooked to order.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
