They always have a good selection of beers, and itís the only place Iíve come across in Ontario that serves "real cask ale". Food is good too.

Old looking British bar/cafe. Average tap selection of Ontario beers and a few imports, slightly more interesting bottle selection but prices are quite steep overall. Beer flight available fortunately. Food seemed pretty average and uninspiring. Bartender felt like he just popped out of a Wayneís World movie... Overall a fairly average place in such a competitive local scene.

Good patio in a nice part of town. They have about 15 -20 taps or so with two rotating casks. Ontario focus beer and it is pretty good mix of regular beers and seasonal. Food is well priced and tasty enough. No complaints here.

Pub located south of Bloor st near Bathurst intersection in old Victorian house. Multileveled for events Service is hit and miss. They do have solid beer list. Good value.

I always have time for a pint at Victory. Unfortunately, I donít always have time for the poserís and hipsters.

Finally visited this little spot with my sister on a recent warm afternoon. Long narrow room downstairs with a smaller upstairs area that doesnít seem to get used all the often. Inside is kind of dumpy. The patio is the busiest part of the establishment (at least on this sunny day, it was). Solid selection of Ontario micros at a fairly reasonable price. Youíll find similar brews on tap here as elsewhere around the city, but thereís not a whole lot of stuff in this immediate area, so itís worth checking out if you find yourself in the neighborhood.

Holy pretentious Batman! Came here after a show in December í09 and was very disappointed. First of all, thereís nowhere to sit. Took a while to get some service, and when we did we got some lumber jack-looking goofball with a big chip on his shoulder. Upon asking, "what do you have on cask?" the server responded, "pfft...I donít know," then proceeded to cater to his hipster friends in the corner. Eventually I managed to get a pint of Durham Red Dragon, which was delicious. Didnít try any of the food because the kitchen was closed when we wanted to eat. The seats in our booth were ripped out of place and would lift each time you got up or moved forward. Basically this bar is a dump packed full of snobby U of T students. Good traits? Hmm...thereís a solid beer selection (Duggan #9, Hop Addict, King Pils) and drinks are cheap. Thatís about it. I would say avoid Victory unless youíre one of the insider locals who likes to sneer at íintruders.í A parochial enclave...go to Volo instead!

Wondeful beer served by wonderful people at an even more wonderful price. I came here with my girlfriend, we both had a pint each, ate, etc. The bill was $20 and the atmosphere was terrific. Really a great place.

The Victory is great when your with a group of friends that just really want to get hammered and have a good night. The draft list is usually the same, with the exception of a few rotating taps. They mostly serve Durham beers on cask which is always a plus. Service has been friendly most of the times, and the food is mediocre pubgrub. Not to mention pints are cheap!
