A nice gastropub conveniently located in Columbia. From the outside, it looks like it could be another strip mall parcel, but once inside, you realize you are somewhere different. The owners are serious about their food and beverages. This is a family-owned establishment, with all four contributing daily. I highly recommend the duck fat fries. The beer selection is thoughtful and fresh. There are beer dinners every month with wine dinners thrown in occasionally.

This is a great stop if you want to try a huge selection and talk to some knowledgable folks about beer. The place is a bit on the darker side full of wood and brass. Food is some of the best I have had at a pub, lobster grilled cheese with duck fat fries is a favorite for lunch when I am looking to get away from work. They have an amazing "beer book" full of bottles sorted by country/state. It is actually almost overwhelming with all the choices.

Located in a standalone building in a prefab block I wasnít expecting much but this place is pretty awesome. Lots of brass and wood on the inside. They have 24 taps plus over 150 bottles a few of them pretty hard to get. They have a nice range of local and national crafts plus a few Brewdogs, Mikellers, and Nogne as well. They also have weekly beer nights on Mondays. The food is fantastic. The portions arenít large but theyíre incredibly flavorful. The prices arenít cheap but itís a really cool experience.

Nice place! Really solid tap selection- had barrel aged Ten Fidy the first time I was there. Do lots of brewery events with Stone, Flying Dog, etc. Food is solid. Ambiance is a little strange; they were trying a little too hard for the dark, cozy atmosphere. Still good, very good selection, good food. Definitely check it out.

Loong bar with extra tables, restaurant next door. Service was OK, they were friendly but looked a little stressed on a Sunday afternoon. Food was outstanding. Beer selection was very good, with lots of local stuff plus an occasional rarity. Good prices. Worth going out of your way for.

Great pub. The draft beer selection is pretty decent, and not too expensive. Bottles are overpriced however, especially since The Perfect Pour is right down the street. Food is also good. Friendly service and a good atmosphere.

This place is awesome! Some of the best food Iíve ever had. Not your typical beer bar. This is more of an upscale restaurant that focuses on quality food as much as they do quality beer. The owner, Victoria, is a young woman whom Iíve seen interacting with the customers, including me, on numerous occasions. Service is good, but not all of the servers have an adequate base of knowledge to match their beer selection. Overall, Iíve made this my new destination for an all around enjoyable meal with my family.

This place is pretty awesome. I wish that there was something like this nearer to home. We made reservations for 5:15 via OpenTable. I received a very pleasant confirmation call the morning of our reservation. Due to our own error we ended up being about 5 minutes late for our reservation, but thankfully our table was still ready and we were promptly seated. The first thing that I noticed is that this place is hopping and it was still quite early for the Saturday night dinner crowds. Having two kids in tow, one 2 and one 6, I was worried that this place would not be good for them (this according to the yelp profile), boy was I wrong. The kids menu is great, both in its selection and its prices. The service was very accommodating to kids. As those with kids probably know, go early. Bringing kids to a 7pm Sat night dinner is not the wisest idea. On to the food. Ordered a bucket of duck fat fries to start. Yum yum. The heady aroma of rendered duck fat hits immediately with a good backing of rosemary and truffled salt. My wife ordered the amazing "mushroom and swiss" kobe burger. This was the star of the night for me. A truly wonderful burger. From the perfect brioche to the perfectly charred on the outside, red and meaty on the inside patty, and the gruyere acting as the swiss. No ketchup needed here! I ordered the America Dip which was quite good, though not as good as the burger. As for libations, the draft list is pretty damn awesome and the prices are quite decent. All the beer was served in nice glassware (even a snifter for an Imperial Stout). Service is top notch all around. Attentive without being overbearing. Prices are extremely fair for what seems to be quality ingredients that are prepared with care and not just thrown onto a plate shoved out of the kitchen door. This is all the more amazing given how busy the place was. Overall I highly recommend Victoria Gastro Pub. I think that the owners are really onto something and would love to see a restaurant like this in the Northern Virginia suburbs, it would certainly succeed and we really need it.
