My husband and I LOVE to travel and try different breakfast places. The reviews on here are very misleading. The only reason this restaurant got a 2 was because it’s cozy. The food deserves a 1. The waitress left us while she checked out 15+...More

Just about everything, except waffles. What we like is that they put a pot of coffee on the table. Eggs, pancakes, French toast. Mimosas. Omelettes. Steak and eggs.

Victoria's offers an American casual dining experience culminating over thirty 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. They happily accept reservations. The restaurant has a full service bar and tasty wines. Doug and Doris accept reservations for special occasions. When the weather is perfect outdoor dining is a plus. The courtyard is delightful and comfortable. Hope to see you soon!
