“One of the best Restaurants in Columbia, Md.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Great greeting staff, kid friendly, beer and wine club. A menu that utilizes local ingredients.
Try the Duck fat fries, Grilled cheese & lobster sandwich, and fish & chips with beer batter.

“Trying to hard to be something different”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

review of Victoria Gastro Pub

Did not like this place much.

It looks like a cheap pub (think Cheers) but the menu is very high pallet and really hard to understand what you are ordering.
It seems you cant juust get regular american cousine here.
Everything is fancy and blah.
Ordered steak and it was just ok.
Roasted vegatables (there was hardly any tthere) were strange
Beer was also too fancy, tasted like it had dandelions in it
Just wish there was n option to have some regular food here
Would not come here again

“Not for me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Very noisy, service not very good and food ordinary. It is very popular with the young crowd. They seem to like the noisy and the camaraderie there.

“Slipping Badly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Wow, bad service and mediocre food, not what I've come to expect from many visits. They didn't have enough waitstaff for the brunch rush in the bar, but I was here before the rush and the service was still lacking. Not just slow, but no one took my order for 30 minutes, and I sat with trash and an empty plate for a good 20 minutes. The food came out cold, and it was clear that the signature duck fat fries were cooked in a too cool fryer since they were soggy and full of oil. The special omelet, andouille and roast chicken, was a good idea but the meat was too large so the omelet fell apart when you tried to eat it. Took way too long to get a refill on tea and the check.
