We are not fried food people so onion rings are a real treat for us. I had some as part of my lunch. Knowing I had to share before they were stolen I gave one to my wife and daughter. What a guy! Well one didn't do it. So we ordered a separate side of onion rings which soon disappeared... More

While I have frequently breakfasted at and thoroughly enjoyed Victoria's before, yesterday they outdid even their customary excellence. Once in awhile, one experiences that meal in which everything is just perfect, and this was one of those occasions. Chef Juan prepared the garden omelet with generous amounts of veggies, topped with perfectly-melted cheddar cheese; accompanied by the home fries "with... More

This is our favorite restaurant for after church breakfast. Easy access. Friendly staff. A patio for outdoor seating. And a pot of coffee sitting on the table. Wait staff is attentive without hovering. Food is hot and delicious. We have also had supper there. Very good with a wine list. Should have a higher number ranking.

This is a clean, beautifully decorated establishment with great quality food. We had breakfast where we were all satisfied with our selections. The eggs Benedict was the best I have had! My party was a little disappointed in the ham as they thought it resembled deli meat. The restrooms were nicely decorated and clean. I would come back!

Thank you Melody for your fantastic review. We appreciate the time and your attention to detail to provide such a thorough review. The ham you mentioned is a lightly smoked honey cured ham.

We recently spent the night in Williamsburg, VA on our way home from an outing visiting wineries in Charlottesville. We asked the front desk at our hotel if they could recommend a restaurant, non-chain, off the beaten path, not too expensive, with good food. Victoria's was their recommendation, and they nailed it. The Rockfish Oscar (nightly special), which we paired... More

We went here for dinner a couple weeks ago, and we were confused on whether it was supposed to be a nice restaurant with tablecloths or not. Processed cheese was served in a disposable with saltine crackers as if it were a takeout restaurant. But the table was set with cloth tablecloths and cloth napkins and wine glasses. One in... More

Local place; kind of off the beaten track away from CW, Busch Gardens, and Richmond Road out on Route 5. Large crowds for breakfast judging by the cars in the parking lot. Always has good specials and a good wine list for dinner. Cheddar cheese spread and crackers are complimentary while you wait for your meal. But I really like... More

Great and good are always welcomed comments in a review.

One of our favorite places in town. Try the chicken salad, the best! Good selection of items and all of them are good. Specials every night and a full bar. Closed Monday's but open breakfast, lunch and dinner every day but Sunday. Give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

I meet with a group at Victoria's every Thursday for breakfast. I look for three things: food, service and ambiance.

Description
Victoria's offers an American casual dining experience culminating over twenty five years of experience and proprietorship by Doug and Doris Bryant. Daily they oversee every aspect of Victoria's operation. Their success scotches the notion that husbands and wives shouldn't work together. Victoria's is named after a beloved family pet Holly Victoria. She was a shelter Puppy adopted from the Heritage Humane Society in 1994. Her spirit continues to provide care and support for the local shelter. Victoria's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We happily accept reservations. We have a full service bar. We are available to serve special occasions and events. When the weather is perfect we delight customers with outdoor dining in our lovely courtyard.
