We stopped in for dinner, not knowing what to expect, and came out feeling stuffed! Vic's was hands down delicious. I had the open faced beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. My friend had the California burger and fries. We had to get a container to take half with us! It was so yummy, we couldn't leave it behind.... More

Want a good breakfast anytime of the day? Vic's is the place. I wanted breakfast at mid-day and got it. Nothing fancy but ultra clean with good service, food, and the normal atmosphere we've all come to expect from a locals joint, just comfortable like an old shoe.

Trust me...this is a good thing! Tables, booths, counter seats, lots of stuff on the walls, cubby to see into the kitchen, lots of (obviously) regular customers so how could I not scoot over to a recently vacant booth so some tables could be smushed together. Friendly faces, varied menu, and enjoyed my breakfast. My only wish? Prefer my coffee... More

Loved the atmosphere in Vic's. It's a genuine old diner that we stopped by to have breakfast. Full of local, so for English tourists like us it was a treat! Fab American breakfast and enough coffee to drown me

A standard all American family run eatery with good food and excellent service. Friendly staff who all speak English and where locals congregate. Right next to the beautiful town square and all the shops.
