“A random choice leads to a great evening”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

An afternoon visit to the east-side riverwalk in Minneapolis led us hungry and thirsty to Vics. After a bit of delay in geting a server to us, we had a great meal. Wines by the bottle are at ridiculously affordable prices (Chalk Hill Sauvignon Blanc at 21). Appetizer menu extremely reasonable, with delicious concoctions (Portabella Mushroom in puff pastry with a kickin sweet spicy sauce, tiliapia tacos, duck confit quesadillas). Very good service by Tristian (sp?), but kitchen was a bit slower than reasonable. Will be heading back there soon! .

“Delicious food with a view”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

This restaurant was exceptional - wines available by the bottle as liquor store prices, amazing food (I recommend the pork) and a great view. The servers were knowledgeable and helpful about the menu (it was hard to choose, everything looked great), service was spot-on: friendly, always ready to bring you anything you needed and never pushy. It's on the riverwalk with a very nice view - great for a date night.

“Good Food - Great Outdoor Dining”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

A wonderful place to spend a couple of hours with a great view. We went there during the Stone Arch Festival and sat on the patio for the better part of 2 hours. Food was very good, we had the walleye shore lunch which was fresh and prepared perfectly, the Steak tenderloin sandwich was tender, flavorful and really excellent, the pulled pork sandwich was a little on the dry side and not up to the other 2 items. The wine menu is one of the most reasonably priced you will find in the Cities. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Couldn't think of a better way to spend a summer afternoon.

“Summer Favorite!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

I love Vic's. The prices on wine are excellent and the pork is fantastic. In the winter months the restaurant is generally very quiet. In the summer, it is the best restaurant on the main! On weekends in the summer there is also music (shared with Tuggs) in the evenings that always packs a crowd! It's a beautiful area on main with a nice view.

“Fun by the River”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

A truly fun spot. A menu for everyone. This venue has a wonderful outdoor patio for afternoon relaxing by the river. They offer a wine list that has very good pricing so you can stay a while and enjoy the day. Young or old you gotta try this place.
