We went here after looking at their menu and decided it was a nice place to go due to the 12 hour slow cooked steak. I ordered a chicken salad which was without doubt the worst meal I'd ever eaten. It was supposed to have prosciutto on it but all that resembled it was an over cooked piece sitting on top. The actual salad was a few pieces of chopped iceberg lettuce and a few bits of chicken. Really tasted awful. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

“That stench of stale beer, cigarettes and vomit... no thanks”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Vic is the watering hole of choice for many of my work colleagues, and to this day I do not understand why. Every time I have gone to this pub I have felt dirty immediately upon walking in the door. The indoor bar areas are not bad, but also not very big. One of the main thoroughfares to the outside beer garden is via a hallway where the staff kitchen appears to be. The smokers area is a welcome relief, however the stench of cigarettes fills the entire outdoor area. Walking out here, I feel like the entire area just needs hosing down and cleaning up.
The only good thing about The Vic is the cheap meals (generous portions) and cheap happy hour drinks.

Hi there. Thanks for the review. Have you been into the venue lately.. We've had a renovation and the smell has gone! Amazing what new carpet does! Check us out sometime!

“Daily Specials”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Good food in a cool area of Brisbane. They run a daily special for each day of the week. The day we went it was 12 dollar steaks. The steaks were great and a good deal for dinner in the city. Some of the specials didnt seem as good as others so I'd give a call to see what they are offering. The rest of the menu looked pretty standard for a bar and grill place. Big open seat yourself area, perfect for a group
