Victory Tavern is a very nice place to have dinner before an event at AAC. Food is good and moderately priced and service is good as well.

Coworker and I were in the area for a conference and their menu caught our eye when looking on OpenTable. Both of us had two different types of burgers and they both were amazing! Large burger that we both could barely finish, however the highlight of meal was the homemade chips with creamy blue cheese on top! Absolutely AMAZING (for lack of better word)! Lots of space, several TV's to watch your favorite sports team, full menu of options and our server was very friendly and helpful in food suggestions.

We were looking for something close to the American Airlines Center and it fit that description, but the food was not great and pricey for what we got. Specifically I ordered my steak salad with a medium rare steak and it came well done. Hard for me to eat. The macaroni and cheese was bland and the kids chicken fingers were tough and rubbery. Service was fine but I would not go back for the food.

It was a special occassions taking place in the area so we decided to have a few drinks and appetizers. It just so happened it was happy hour which helped in reservation choice. But much to our surprise when we got the bill the happy hour prices were not honored. We asked and was told that if an event was taking place next door at American Airlines Center they dont have happy hour. Most concerts and sporting events occur here so why ever advertise happy hour! Disappointed.

The Staff was over the top! I made a 5 o’clock dinner reservation in between Thursday’s NCAA basketball games. The restaurant was packed and everything worked like clockwork. No issues fantastic service and the food was really good and the beer was even better! Great job!

I would definitely recommend that waiters and waitresses inform patrons when they are seated if you are sold out of a menu item. There is nothing more annoying then deciding on a meal to then be told its not available. Aside from this our waitress was great and the dining room was nice. Food wasn't amazing but I would return.

We always go here prior to the Dallas Stars game. Food always good. Mix drinks are more expensive than inside AAC so just watch out there. Beers are priced right. Maria, I think was the name of our waitress. We will always ask for her. Attentive and pleasant. You can see she cares about the customers and her job.

Great appetizers- limited wine selections by the glass. My group enjoyed their entrees. Unfortunately I chose Fish n Chips which were not very good - all breading and wet. No flavor - assuming frozen cod. Our server was great about asking us how things were and took care of those things that were not so good. Overall not a bad place. Would go again for the appetizers

We had a table of eight and realized that the Mavericks game was 30 minutes earlier than we realized. We let our server know about the need to get us served quicker than usual. The service was able to serve cocktails and dinners quickly but not feeling rushed. I was very impressed as the restaurant was slammed by the pre-game rush.

Victory Tavern is one of my favorite restaurants when going to AAC/Mavs games, and this recent experience highlights why.
