“Nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

This is a nice place to meet friends after work for a few drinks & bite to eat...or before a show at The Palace. The food is priced well and very good eats. I would definitely go there again.

“Great food at a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2009

Hungry and tired after an all-night trip from Los Angeles, we were looking for something good in Albany, and we found it .. ..

WHENEVER YOU ARE IN DOWNTOWN, VICTORY IS YOUR PLACE!!

I had their CHEDDAR BURGER which was one of the best burgers I've ever had and stole some CAESAR SALAD which looked like there was enough to feed three .. ..

We topped it off with their APPLE CRISP that was delightful .. ..

VICTORY CAFE almost makes a cross-country trip bearable =))))))

“One and half stars”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2005

On a recent hectic ‘weeknight-no-time-to-cook’ search for a decent
place to eat without dropping big bucks; I was referred to a place familiar to locals.
Decor? hmmm ..how would I describe rather dark walls painted maroon
with blue tablecloth centerpiece. Not a romantic rendevous by any shot.
Walls were hung with homemade paintings that would qualify for entry
into the infamous ‘Museum of Bad Art’ in Dedham Massaschusetts.(no kidding, it really exists). The rug was speckled-beige-brown and hid the grime well. We were promptly seated, near the storefront where a sad looking ‘poinsettia’ leftover from Christmas sat. It was generally nosiey. . We opted for a glass of house merlot. Decent. Looking around the room we noticed blackboard specials. . House specials included: a strip steak for $14.95, cajun shrimp for 12.95, grilled swordfish for $13. There were many sandwich choices ranging from ruebens, to cornbeef, to roast beef, grilled chicken, and many more too numerous to mention; definitely a good place for lunch. I sampled their basic hamburger, with a choice of 2 toppings(roasted pepper,sauteed
onions)$5.75. My wife chose the caesar salad with grilled chicken.$6.75.
My hamburger was juicy, cooked medium, it came with side order of
fries, a pickle,two slices of the tasteless-type tomatoes. My wife’s caesar salad lacked any punch, missing the usual tangy garlicky-anchovy vinagrette.
All in all, it was OK. Total bill:
$37 with tip plus $5 for parking. This place probaly enjoys the
proximity of being opposite the ‘Repertory theatre’ and close to the Palace theatre.
I would imagine on weekends it competes well with the brewhouse next
door, and draws a younger drinking crowd. Decent value for the money, but nothing to rave about. JT.
