“Tasty food & drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I chose Victoria Gastro Pub because I read about the restaurant in BMore Media online magazine. The article mentioned that this place uses local seafood, and the oysters I ordered were Choptank sweets and they were delicious. I also enjoyed the duck confit poutine. The speciality drink that evening was an "Angry Austrian" featuring a vodka I first enjoyed with friends in Munich and it was very enjoyable. While making the reservations, I have to say Cynthia accommodated our party of 10 (with 3 children) very nicely. But when we arrived, the table had only adult water glasses one of which my 3 yr old promptly spilled. We asked our server for kid's water cups (with lids) and he said, "Oh they only told us there would be 1 kid." So why wasn't there at least 1 kid's cup? And my uncle said "when we arrived, they mentioned 3 kids to me." Also, our poor server didn't seem to know a lot about the menu or drink list. He didn't smile much and seemed totally overwhelmed. I know serving large parties and children is a hassle, but he seemed pretty put out! We didn't stay for dessert but I would definitely go back and try the food again...with a different server. ;)

“Duck Fat Frites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Lobster Grilled Cheese to start! Great Food. Great Service! Not a place to go if you are restricted on fat or a diet! Great cocktails and gathering bar.
Has a great beer selection. Love going and taking Peeps there!

“Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Lobster grilled cheese sandwich, do I need to say more. Delicious! Service was great. Decor warm and inviting. Bathroom was clean. My daughter, mother-in-law and I were very pleased with our lunch at the Victoria Gastro Pub.

I have had lunch, and happy hour's, here several times and I have never been disappointed! They have a great atmosphere, and the food and service has always been impeccable. It is one of my favorites in Columbia.

“Victoria's is Where I Want to Be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

You MUST MUST MUST try the duck fries! I've never craved anything like I do these delicious delicacies fried in duck fat and served with a delicious french dipping sauce. All I need do is say "duck fries" to my coworkers and we HAVE A PLAN! The drinks are excellent, the selection is unbelievable and Victoria herself will come out and feed you from her sample kitchen! A really great place to spend the evening - EVERY evening!
