Food was good. Our server wasn't the best I've had there, but she was ok.

love this restaurant. Nice ambiance; friendly and efficient staff. Division into rooms keeps noise level down. New items always available but favorites stay on menu, too. Eat here on average of once a month even during COVID.

Sat outside in their patio area during lunch time. They seemed to be taking precautions regarding COVID-19, which was good. Overall, we felt the food was too sweet and not balanced in flavors. Seemed like every dish we ordered (Brussels sprouts, Seafood melt, crab cake) had some sort of overly sweet component, which wasn’t to our taste.

We really like Victoria and will be back. This just wasn't our best meal. My main dish (chicken biscuit) was really good, but the sweet potato hash with it was too salty (inedible). It looked great, but even my partner who likes saltier than I do couldn't eat it. His poutine came out with (what appeared to be) no gravy. We asked for more and the waiter took care of it (no upcharge) but he did have to wait ~10 minutes additional for it, so I was done with my meal and his was cool. Anyway, like I said, we love Victoria and will be back. This just wasn't our best experience.

First time dining in since the pandemic. Probably one of the handful of places that I'd trust. Great set-up, great food, and great service. Never disappointed!

Outdoor seating is somewhat limited but they took great care to keep guests socially distanced. Staff and guests seemed to comply with posted rules. It was nice to feel a semblance of normalcy. Inside also seemed to be working like a well oiled machine! Food and cocktails are always great! Lobster grilled cheese...need I say more?!

All of our entrees, including a burger, pork chop and cobb salad, were excellent.
The staff is great as are the beer options.

We had an outstanding dinner and excellent service at Victoria’s. We ordered several of the appetizers including the crab eggrolls. Sweet potato potato skins and the duck fries. Entrées included the new burgers with crab aioli on a pretzel roll, seafood BLT and a regular but incredible angus burger. Everything was delicious. I love this place!

My wife and I have been living in Columbia for over 4 years now and we consider Vicotria's Gastro Pub to be one of our go to restaurants for a nice dinner out together or with the kids. Unfortunately the menu hasn't changed much in the past 4 years and I find myself disappointed with the limited options of entrees and the over abundance of sandwhiches on the menu. This would be a fine balance of options if the sandwhiches were more affordable, but alas a dinner for 2 adults eating sandwhiches and 2 kids eating the standard boring kids menu fair costs well over $100. The service and ambience are always on point, I would just like to see some changes on the menu and a re-focus on more classic "pub" food and move away from so many sandwhich options.

Horrible service from the staff, from the moment our party arrived. We ordered quite a meal but the level of service you would expect for a 300 dollar meal was just not quite up to par. Our server was rude and wanted us to close our tabs before we even finished eating our meal. I had to order my Gin and Tonic 3 times before it actually tasted like a real drink, Well actually had to order an extra shot on the side. Management sat at and adjacent table and stared at us as if we were going to leave or she just wanted to shut down the section. Owner needs to really think about what is going on in his location because your food is amazing but your staff needs a real hospitality training session.

Victoria's is probably my favorite restaurant in Columbia! Never had anything I didn't like here. Lobster grilled cheese, cloak & dagger, and poutine are my go-tos.

Our server was very pleasant - attentive but not overbearing. The beer, poutine, crab egg rolls and pork chop were delicious. The seafood BLT was not. We were expecting whole shrimp or scallops inside, but it was more like crab dip. The menu description sounds better than what you actually get. Social distancing was great inside the restaurant, but I'm not sure about the outside because we didn't sit there.

First trip to a restaurant during the lockdown. Did some research and discovered they had outside seating. Got there early for a brunch gathering so we could request and get the outside.

From the reception up front, to the walk to the table outside, and for every aspect of the service, our interactions with the staff were excellent. They were all attentive, paid attention to details, and provided a superb experience.

The menu offered traditional and original brunch creations. We chose to share a pastry platter and then chose a Steak & Eggs dish and the Chef's Omelet. All the food was well made and very tasty.

The cappuccinos we had to close things out were also really well made and tasted really good.

We also chose a beer and a cider cocktail to start.

Overall a really good experience and I highly recommend Victoria Gastro Pub!

Service was spectacular. Food was outstanding. Steak done perfectly. Doesn't happen often for me. Crab cakes to die for. Restaurant entry needs some cleaning and work. Looks like COVID may be keeping resources from having the restaurant appearance on par with the food and service. All in all a wonderful meal.

Great food and drinks. We had polite and helpful servers seat us in the bar area to grab drinks before an outdoor seat was available.

Limited happy hour menu with no food specials.

I’ve always enjoyed the food here. My recent visit didn’t disappoint. The duck fat fries and seafood blt are amazing. Also enjoyed Brussel sprouts and butterscotch bread pudding. So delicious. Ate in the outside patio which was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive.

I am a regular her for a reason. I have never had a meal here that was not excellent. Their choices for drinks are not equaled in too many places I know of. Their staff is universally pleasant and accommodating. You are greeted well and served well throughout your stay. Still have the best burger in town along with that unrivaled beer list. You will enjoy it here!

Extremely slow service, left us in a corner for the bartender to take care of use. He was clearly more worried about the bar tables and guests. Noted it was a birthday, nothing done for it. Apps took 25 min and we got a sorry out of it. Disappointed
