This Mother’s Day was my 1st one without my mom. I decided to have brunch with a few friends of mine to help lift my spirit. I found Victory Tap on Opentable and after reading the reviews made the decision to dine here. I was NOT disappointed! The reviews were wonderfully correct. From our waitress to the ambience to the food it was PHENOMENAL! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and we’re already looking forward to coming back. You won’t be disappointed! This is truly a hidden gem!

We have never had a bad experience at Victory Tap. Our servers were phenomenal. However, our drinks were not good. The sangria was bitter. We sent it back. The margarita was better.

It was full of energy. Nice atmosphere.
I would have scored higher but the food was ok. I loved the grilled calamari. But the orchiette w/ rappini and sausage lacked flavor. The sauce was watery and we only at a few bites dew to lack of flavor.

We had an excellent meal and will definitely be back. Unfortunately we were seated near a large family with small and very loud kids. The parents did not try to quiet them down. I know that is something the restaurant has no control over. It was just a shame that we and other diners around us were subjected to the distraction of that group.

Calamari was soft not chewy and not heavily coated.
Horseradish crust could have been more tangy
Steak was cooked medium as requested
Chilean Sea Bass was good/tender/juicy but the sauce was too salty.
Drinks were good pours. Had to ask for a bit more SS for Whisky Sour. Tiramasu and Carrot cake were great.
All for reasonable cost.

The kitchen was understaffed and disorganized. Grubhub and other services were the priority. We waited over an hour for appetizers and soup. Our waitress was very attentive and this clearly wasn't her fault. When we finally got our entrees, two and half hours later, the food was overcooked, bland, and not edible. The comped some of the bill, but whole evening was ruined. He had paid for 2.5 hours of parking and as a result came out to a ticket as a result of the whole evening. It would not be somewhere that I would give a second chance based on all factors.

Food was left out next to our table for ten minutes before we were served. It was cold even when reheated. Service was slow and was inattentive.
