Victoria Gastro Pub
Lobster Grilled Cheese... no brainer.
The food was outstanding as always. The service was a little less attentative than I would have expect with a smaller crowd, but it was fine. The pretzel crab burger is delicious and the onion rings were cooked perfectly. All and all, a great dinner.
We had a great time. The waitress was wonderful & helped with some specific modifications to the choices we made. Of course, we’ll be back.
This New Year's Eve was our first time at Victoria Gastro Pub and we were pleasantly surprised! The food was excellent (yummy lamb chops!) and the service was friendly and competent. We ate outdoors (because of COVID) and were not cold for a second. Thank you!
Food was great, service was great, just wish you had more items on your menu!
It is not possible to get a bad meal here, just not possible. I remain amazed, even with their pulled back COVID time menu, the offer a very good selection, all of it good. The service continues to impress. They have a knack for hiring engaging, courteous, quality people do the serving. A pleasure to go there. Will continue to go and get carry out while possible.
Overpriced for the quality. We have been there twice now and both times it has not been very good quality and taste of the food.
What a lovely decor and environment. Great for date night or a small classy celebration.
Great food and service / very organized and committed to solid COVID practices
Some of the best bourbon cocktails out there. Food selection is always changing. I've never been disappointed.
Good return visit
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.
Awesome service, delicious food and drinks, love the ambience of the restaurant!
Good food and beer. The service was great. The patio heating was good.
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.
The food & bar drinks were excellent. We felt very comfortable & safe at where we sat. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing atmosphere.
One of my favorite places
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!
I can recommend Victoria Gastro Pub.
We eat lunch outside and I really enjoyed it. The service was excellent and fast and the food was good.
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.
Good food and social distancing made for a fun night.
It was our anniversary. Other than the waitress originally rushing us a bit it was a nice night.
Good food as always good beer and excellent fish and chips
Appetizers were phenomenal, and the black angus burger (cooked rare, just as requested) was truly one of the best burgers I’ve ever had!! Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent service - thanks Sam!! Great food.
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.
Food was good but the portions have reduced. This is probably due to COVID and understandable
Great everyday dining!
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!
This is our go-to restaurant for most nights out. Always tasty interesting food. The service is outstanding, friendly, knowledgable staff, efficient.
And the ambience is always cheerful.
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.
Excellent breakfast and brunch items. The hash is worth returning for all by itself.
