Victory Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The drinks are way over priced. Plus the bartender didn't know how to make an extra dirty martini. They made it with kettle one, which I know there is a premium charge for. I was not asked my preference of vodka. I had to chase my waitress down for a check. We were there for an event at the AA center.
The food here has always been average and the prices high. The vegetable soup has always been the best thing here, but last night, it lacked salt. The mac and cheese had a burn taste. The only reason we keep coming here is because it is across from the AAC when we want something convenient and accessible. The Wait people are very nice and effective. The management just needs to step up on the quality and quantity of the food.
Had overpriced fish and chips and a steak salad for what we ended up eating. Fish was tasteless, only thing that made it edible was the dipping sauce. French fries were mushy and cold, had probably been under a heating lamp for a while before making it on to the plate. The salad was good, but the steak was terrible! Asked for medium doneness came out past well done and even burnt in places. How are you a chef in Texas and not know how to cook a steak? Our server was delightful and the only positive to our experience a the restaurant. Overall bad experience, will not be back.
We really enjoyed Victory Tavern. We were there with friends before the Tim McGraw/Faith Hill concert. It is very loud and since my husband has hearing loss, he had to turn off his hearing aid and then couldn't hear the conversation which bothered him. We all had the steak and it was very flavorful except it was a little overcooked - we were pretty sure they got our order mixed up with another couple at the table who ordered medium well where we ordered ours medium. Wine was good and our waiter was very attentive . Overall it was a great experience.
This was our first time to Victory Tavern. My friend and I had dinner before the Lionel Richie concert. It was great to be right across the street from the AAC. The food was delicious and was served quickly and our waiter was very attentive. The atmosphere was alive; however, it was very loud and a little hard to talk. But, I will definitely go back. We were very happy with our experience.
This restaurant is a good restaurant but if you are going to concert at AAC it may not be a good place to visit. We had a reservations but it took 20 mins to be seated. It was over crowded and very hot. Before going to a game or show at AAC eat somewhere else. We could not enjoy our meal.
We went before a concert at the American Airlines Center. Very noisy. They seemed understaffed. While the server was pleasant, she kept forgetting to bring us items we ordered or asked for. I do not recommend this place on a night when there is an event at the AAC.
The food was terrible. The Caesar salad was nothing but romaine lettuce with caesar dressing on it, which is not a true caesar salad. The crab cakes were nothing anywhere close to crab, had flavor of misc fish with maybe a tiny bit of crab mixed in it and overall not worth a penny. The meatloaf was probably less than 4 oz serving with a huge price. Overall portions were more like appetizer sizes with an entree price. Very poor quality of food. The cook or if someone calls themselves a chef needs to be fired! Will probably not dine there ever again.
This place was hopping, loud and packed. We were attending a Neil Diamond concert next day at the AT& T Arena is the reason we went, close and convenient. If you didn't have reservations then there was at least a 2 hour wait according to the manager. The only drawback is that on special event evenings, i.e. concerts, etc.. at the AT&T Arena next door, they DON'T have valet parking. NOTE: I had called earlier the same day and asked about the valet parking and was given wrong information. So I had to find alternate close parking because I already had paid parking on the other side of the arena. Cost me an extra $25 to park. Other than that the food was great and service was very good considering they were packed, but a little too loud for my normal taste. However I would probably do again, just save the extra parking fee because I know better now.
We have eaten here before and had a great experience. This time, not so good. We had a 6:30 pm reservation because of an 8 pm concert and we arrived 15 minutes early. After inquiring at the front desk a few times, we still were not seated at 6:45 pm so we asked again and finally got a table. The food was good, but the portion size for the meatloaf was way too small. My ribs meal was very good and a good portion size, but the meatloaf was ridiculously small. The meat was around 2" square and there were three small pieces of broccoli.
We eat here every time we go to the AAC. Great location pre-concert or game. Quite noisy and crowded, but still a great location. Definitely make a reservation before hand or you might miss the concert and the game by waiting for a table. And, yes, they do honor their reservations.
Great place to eat before a concert or sporting event at AAC since it is right there and food is better than arena food, altho' AAC has some upscale food options esp on Platinum level. Tavern was nice, food is pretty good but nothing to write home about. Its true value is proximity to AAC and has a lot of people doing just that so make a reservation! Service was good and friendly. Overall a great option pre-AAC or if you are in Victory square.
We went for dinner before a concert at the AAC. It is a great location and had very good and quick service. The atmosphere is nice but it does get loud when the restaurant fills up. The food was ok but nothing special. They only offered a part of their menu, mostly salads and main entrees because of the concert. They did not offer any sandwiches or some other items which was disappointing.
