Golf clubs have a reputation for being stuffy and traditional, but one visit to Victoria Hills and you’ll quickly find out it’s different here. The best way to see what we’re all about is to visit Sparrows Grille and stay for lunch or dinner.

Our main dining area is elegantly appointed—it has to be since we host some of the area’s most beautiful wedding receptions right here! With our friendly staff, great food and relaxed atmosphere you will feel right at home!

the service is so poor Every time I go there. It is so convenient for us because we live in Victoria Hills. I should not have to ask for a refill on wine or water. And then end up having to go to the bar and get It myself every time I go there. I asked the waitress for a to go box she didn’t bring it so then I asked the mgr. and he didn’t bring it either. It is such a waste of great space. The food is great!

There was a special menu for Oktoberfest. I had grilled salmon, my husband had roast pork shoulder with sauerkraut and roasted redskins. The food was hot and delicious and very reasonably priced. The drink prices were hard to beat. The waitstaff seemed a little confused, although the service was adequate. The room has nothing to absorb sound so voices are loud and the music was loud. We were glad we weren't sitting near any speakers.

Sparrows offers Specials many nights a week. The pasta special is always a treat, with pasta dishes "made to order". There are always drink specials to go along with the special of the evening. We will definitely go back again.

Food is great, service is slow, because they do not have enough servers for the huge amount of business. Max is doing a great job, but he needs MORE help. If you like a very noisy place to eat, then go there on Bingo night. WOW, THE GUY AND HIS MUSIC was so LOUD. We could not hear the people setting with us. Next time we will sit in the other room.

We were in Orange City on a weekend business trip and looking for creative cuisine and attentive service. We picked the Sparrow's Grille because of the menu and were not disappointed. We sat at the bar and enjoyed well made cocktails, the best garlic parmesan fries ever, fish tacos and a shrimp pasta dish. My only suggestion for improvement would be to reduce the lighting level. It was super bright. They did dim it slightly on our request. The bartender was friendly and did a great job. Glad we found it.

We love the Wednesday evening all you can eat pasta evening, the cooks cook the fixin's per your instructions, whatever you are in the mood for, a good selection too. The cooks and waitress were friendly and efficient. The golf course view is nice. We like sitting away from the bar. Open to the public!

We were a group of 15 for a Pre theater meal. We had to wait a long time for our orders to be taken and then it felt along time before our food was served. We understand everything is prepared fresh from scratch and the wait was worth it for the food which was delicious! We were not even offered a dessert menu and our checks were just presented to us .... ! To sum up .... the food when we got it was amazing and that was the verdict no matter which dish people chose. The service, including the telephone contact before arriving at the restaurant left a lot to be desired! A feeling of servers being harassed and not coping! A pity because it lets the whole experience down!

When we arrived, we were unsure how to check in for our reservation since there was no host/ess desk and no one there to greet us. So, we eventually just sat ourselves. Once we sat down, though, things improved.

The menu was reasonably priced and had several appetizers we were interested in. We chose the parmesan fries with truffle aioli. I also ordered the beet salad with goat cheese before our main entrees. Both were excellent. For our meals I ordered the bleu cheese crusted filet and my wife had the salmon which was the daily special. Both, again, were high quality. We were on such a roll we decided to try a dessert. Unfortunately, they did not have much to offer. We tried their only option, a panna cotta. This wasn't quite up to the level of the rest of our meal. It included a biscotti that was unnecessary.

Overall, though, the meal was a pleasant surprise and we will definitely be returning to try some of the other menu options.

This restaurant has recently reopened after renovation. It seemed a little disorganized. There was no one at the hostess station and we had to ask at the bar if we were in the right place. There was nothing to indicate restaurants name ( signs on road were for Mulligans). They were out of mussels. The calamari was nicely cooked. My husbands fish was dry my rigatoni was delicious with a tasty lamb sauce. I would probably try them again for a lunch.
