I had the chance to visit Victor's for lunch and was glad to be able to take my wife here. I had been here a few years ago, but didn't remember the selection being great then, but better than average. I am pleased to see more in the way of craft beer showing up in the draft and bottle selection. We were the only ones in the restaurant because we were there close to the opening time and we were seated quickly.

Victor's is a renovated church with arched windows and high ceiling. It is cozy, not a huge church but comfortable sized for the restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice with black linen tablecloths, deep red walls and green leather chairs to follow the italian color scheme, the walls are painted with columns and there are tapestries hanging from the walls. the bar area is to the left as you walk in and the dining room is located to the right which has approximately 12-15 tables and the bar is long with a standing area off to the right. The dining and bar areas are separated by a wall with windows.

The service we received was prompt, friendly, efficient and helpful. My wife started to feel 'off' and was not able to finish her plate which was a large eggplant salad and the waitress asked if everything was 'ok'. The descriptions in the menu were complete but we were given the specials and had no problem asking for anything without receiving it as the place had only two tables of customers while we were there.

I was pleased with the beer selection for the most part as the carried Terrrapin, Stone, Spring House, as well as the usual suspects - Yuengling Lager, Blue Moon, and Stella Artois. They have a chalkboard at the bar that lists Mikkeller, Dieu du Ciel, Kyuichi and La Rulles, as well as Founders Backwoods bastard and De Dolle Stille Nacht for specials. They also carry other bottles like Westmalle, Duve, La Fin Du Monde, Franzikaner, Weihenstephaner and many regional and macro selections.

We both ordered the potato soup which was served very hot and was not chunky potato pieces as expected, but finely chopped potato with skins on. - the base was creamy and flavorful. I ordered a Cheesesteak which was tasty like a chopped peppersteak on a fresh roll w/ provolone and fried onions. I was glad they brought the marinara sauce on the side as it wasn't really needed, but I used it on half the sub.

My wife had the fried eggplant salad which was well presented and was similar to caprese salad complete with mozzarella, balsamic and tomato. I was pleased with the freshness and the food was adequately portioned too.

The draft I ordered was 4.5 which is slightly pricey and some of the entrees can be higher than 20 so it depends on what you order but for the area they really haven't priced themselves out of the usual range for non-casual dining
I really liked the experience at Victor's and plan to return in the future for food and drinks with friends.

Took the wife on a "date night", for which I try to pick places with a decent beer selection and good to excellent food. Victor's has both. It's a repurposed church, which lends it a unique atmosphere. Very attentive wait staff. Beer selection is not overwhelming, but entirely adequate. I had a couple Fruitallicas; wife had some apparently excellent wine. Menu is predominantly Italian, but there are plenty of light alternatives if you're saving room for beer. Indoor or outdoor seating available.
If you want something kind of classy and not outrageously expensive, I'd suggest you give Victor's a try.
