“Great Food!”

The food and atmosphere was wonderful. My wife's family had Thanksgiving here and the service was great for a group of 12 people.

“A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Our family likes to go and try new places to eat for family memembers birthdays. When Victories first open we tried it and the service was horrible and the food took FOREVER... we waited over a hour for maily bar food. Some people had to correct their ordes at least twice because the waiter either wasn't paying attention to what we wanted or just really sucks at their job! We were told then that they have different cooks on the weekend and that the cook that they had was a bad durning the week because he was always high. So we gave it another try. AGAIN VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! after waiting about almost a year before we thought that maybe they got their stuff together. WE WERE WRONG. The prices are what you would see in a 5 star restaurant in a very large city, the portions are quiet small also. However, this last time we did go, our waitress was VERY GOOD at her job. unfortunately the food still sucked. But we came to the relization that the prices have to be high there because they have to pay 3 people in the kitchen (which is open so you can see them stand and stair at you the WHOLE TIME) to stand there and hold up the counter. WE WILL NOT BE BACK THERE EVER AGAIN. If you want a good meal in Fayette iowa with a bar scene, walk a couple blocks down the road and eat at SHINERS. Its half the price, bigger portions, and it will be stress free because your not going to leave THERE hungry.

“What a dissappointment!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

From the reviews, we figured this was a great place to eat. We come to this area to golf and dine at the local restaurants. The service was lousy. The food took forever, I mean, over an hour. Prices were what you would pay in a larger city. So we would say they were steep. We had to sit in the bar and wanted to dine in the dining room, but it was not open. Our food was okay, but was high priced for what we received. We went to the family restaurant the next night and WOW, what a difference. We will certainly be dining at Boike's Restaurant from now on.
