I went to Victory a few weeks ago with my girlfriend for dinner. They have a pretty diverse menu with pairing suggestions for most things. I had the tacos because it was taco night and they were 1/2 price. They weren't bad, but would not have been worth it at full price. My girlfriend had a white pizza and we both agreed it lacked flavor. The service was very good and the servers were knowledgeable of their beers.

The real reason I wanted to check it out was for the beer. I can get all Victory beers pretty easily at my local shops so I was hoping for some limited release type stuff. I checked online ahead of time to see what was on tap and got excited about two beers on-tap which are not available in bottles. Unfortunately I was told both beers had just run out (Ranch S IPA & Braumeister Pils). They had about 12 beers available and these were the only two they didn't have that were listed, but I was a bit disappointed because all of the rest of the beers are readily available to me all the time. Still, I did not leave dissatisfied because many of their beers are good (I recommend Yakima Glory!) and they were reasonably priced. Most are available in two sizes also which is nice. They also fill growlers for a good price.

The building is in a sort of weird shape and there are a few secluded restaurant areas which really don't offer much in terms of atmosphere. I recommend sitting at the bar or in the room where the bar is because it is much more lively and overall a better experience. Before you leave you can check out their gift shop which has nicely priced items sporting the logos of Victory and its beers ($2 logo pint glasses in several varieties). They also offer beer to go from the shop in bottles, six, and 12 packs, which is rare in Pennsylvania. I found the prices to be comparable if not a tiny bit cheaper than my local stores, but they do have everything that is in season.

Overall a decent place that I will probably return to, but I didn't have an overly impressive experience. I was happier with the gift shop and growler fill than I was with the food or restaurant portion.
