Great food and drink. Service a bit slow, but it was a hockey night, so very understandable and within reason. A great choice for a good meal before a Stars or Mavericks game.

Went there before the Stars-Rangers game. Service was excellent and the food was good.
Spoke to manager who was very customer friendly and told him the next time we went to arena we would be back.

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.

We went in before a concert at AAC. Restaurant was crowed, but with reservation we got our table immediately. Service was quicker than expected and food was great. We'll definitely be going back next time we're at the AAC.

We went to Victory Tavern before the Mavs / Golden State Game. Restaurant was very accommodating. Our server was awesome. Very accommodating to us. We added up ending 3 additional people to our table and he was very helpful. Great personality. Food was also very good.

We absolutely love the staff at Victory Tavern. It would be nice if ownership would invest in a serious renovation. The menu has not been changed for years. It’s getting very tired & more and more options are becoming available.

We went on a night where there was a concert at American Airlines Center, not realizing this was the case. On game/concert nights they have a different menu - one that ONLY has their most expensive entrees. No burgers or sandwiches as are shown on their regular dinner menu. Every entree option was $25+.

The Victory Tavern was recommended by a Dallas-based friend and colleague. An old college friend and I were looking for a place to grab a good steak before the Mavs-Celtics game. The Tavern fit the bill and then some. The food was delicious (BEST mashed potato's ever!) and the service impeccable. When we return next season to see our beloved Celtics wax the Mavs, we will also stop by the Taven for our meal. A TERRIFIC spot.
