Victorias Station & Vic's Boathouse Ratings and Reviews
Went there to celebrate my daughters graduation. DO NOT expect to find parking anywhere close. Put us in a backroom, even though we requested outside or dock side seating. For $300 for 8 people, the food was mediocre, but service was good. Cant say Id ever go back.
There didn't seem to be a place to enjoy a quiet dinner and be able to carry on a conversation at normal decibel levels. I had asked to be seated in a quiet place in the restaurant section, as opposed to Vic's Boathouse. Perhaps a quiet doesn't exist in the restaurant. There was a group of about 9 people next to us and they were boisterous and loud. However, the food was delicious.
We were early for our reservation but they sat us anyway. I should have requested a window as it is on the waterfront. It turned out our table was in the middle of the room; lots of traffic.
I had teryaki steak tips which were done as requested and tender. My wife had Salmon which was excellent. The molten chocolate cake was very good and enough for both of us. The coffee was better than at most places.
We had no plans for the evening so the slow service was not a problem.
Every part of our meal was excellent and so was the service! I had the lobster roll and it was absolutely delicious! The roll was overflowing with lobster meat! My husband had the steak tips. He prefers them rare and they did not over cook them at all, like most restaurants tend to do. I love having a salad bar! The kids menu has many items to choose from. My kids loved their food as well, and they aren't always easy to please! ;-) We will definitely be back!
The salad bar is a treat. There are so many selections for all ages and diets. Children love choosing their own selections. The members of our party ordered fish, steak tips and prime rib. All were cooked as we requested and were all very tasty. Everyone was happy we went there. We were even able to find parking on the wharf. A parking garage is close by if wharf spaces are full.
Went there for Salem's Restaurant Week.
They sat us next to a recently vacated table that went un-bussed for 15 minutes.
Although the Sole Oscar I had was good, two in my party got the pork chop. It was HUGE, but dry, tough and tasteless. I also got the salad bar for my app (didn't know anybody still had a salad bar), but the cretins ahead of me in line nearly caused me to lose my appetite (made me realize why restaurants did away with salad bars).
My recommendation? Come on weekend nights for cocktails and music. And eat somewhere else first.
Our waitress was excellent, very friendly and professional. I had friends visiting from Spain and wanted to try a little of different New England foods. She served everything in a way that was easy to share .
Food was very good, except the baked haddock, which was overlooked. I especially enjoyed the fried calamari, the fish and chips and the fried clams. Cooked to perfection.
Beer selection emphasizing IPAs.
I had been at Victoria's Station before and I will continue going every time I am in Salem.
Went out to eat with another couple. Requested a table for 4 next to the fireplace which was waiting for us when we arrived AND it was a real wood fireplace not a fake gas one. Ambiance couldn't have been better. Two of us had the all you can eat steak tips which were cooked to order and two in our party had the all you can eat fried haddock, which was cooked perfectly, moist and not greasy. We also ordered stuffed mushrooms before our meal which were also excellent. The drinks were great ( wharf rats) and there was a nice selection of wines. Our server Tom was also great. Very friendly and attentive. We easily spent 2 hours there just relaxing by the fire and talking. We never felt rushed, we did go on a Wednesday night and it was not too busy. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be returning soon.
We had terrible service the night we went. They accepted our reservation of 8 people and we had to wait 2 hours to receive our food. When we did receive our food 3 of us had to send our food back because it was burned. The management apologized, as did the waiter, explaining by that they had a party of 35 people that put them behind in the kitchen. They did not charge us for those 3 dinners and comped our desserts. I don't think we will go back, but to their credit they tried to make up for an awful dining experience.
I was there several years back and was disappointed. I had a few other people say that as well. Since I really always liked the restaurant I decided to give it a try with some friends that were in from CT. The meals were very good and the service was good too.
As usual, our evening at Victoria Station was a delight. The staff was great! We were a party of 13 with a baby and our waitress took great care of us. We loved salad bar with it's crisp vegetables, delicious dressings and other yummy bites. Everyone raved about their main meals from seafood to beef. I would highly recommend Victoria Station for any kind of occasion.
I typically grab a meal here during Halloween time. The menu is always filled with many choices. Their New England Clam Chowder is delicious. Their Haddock sandwich is made from fresh fish. I also have to compliment the restaurant on their vast Draft beer selection.
I was recently in Salem for Halloweekend with my mom and a group of our girlfriends. We made a reservation a few months in advance, since we were traveling from Pennsylvania, and we were not disappointed! The food was excellent, the prices were reasonable, the service was fantastic, and the view was beautiful. I would eat here again if I ever come back to Salem, and I would surely recommend this restaurant to others!
We visited during Halloween weekend and we are glad we used Open Table for the reservation becasue they were not accepting parties without reservation. Food was good- I had salmon (good) and wife had steak (fair). Staff was very friendly on a very busy night.
