So recently, thanks to Grandma, Chris and I were able to sneak away from the kiddos to check out another restaurant to review for the blog. We were in the mood for something romantic and decided to try Greek Bros Steakhouse and Oyster Bar in downtown Victoria. This was the first time that we had been, sadly, even though they’ve been at their current location for over a year, I believe. We were looking for a great meal, not a bar scene so I was a little nervous. My first impression was that they might be slightly disorganized as we weren’t immediately acknowledged when we first entered the building. It didn’t take long, though, for staff to let us know that we could choose our own table. The atmosphere was definitely more romantic than the norm as the lighting was low, music soft, and noise from other guests in check and reminiscent of the kind of charm one might find in the Texas hill country. The menu was written on a board off in a corner away from the bar, which seemed kind of odd to me and I probably wouldn’t have noticed it immediately had the waiter not directed my attention to it. Chris and I both ordered the steak dinner which came with a garden fresh salad, pan seared artichoke, and mashed potatoes all presented as pleasing as you might imagine. The service from our waiter was exactly appropriate, not hovering, but keeping our glasses filled. The genre of music playing softly in the background varied from Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” to Charlie Robinson’s “Loving Country”. We did not sit on the patio, although it looked quite inviting, especially in the soft glow of rope lights along the fence. Next time, perhaps when it’s cooler we’ll try out the patio. I didn't think to take pictures of the food but I definitely will for the next #eatstuff blog post.
Customer Service 5/5
Food Quality 4/5
My favorite part was after dinner when we walked around downtown like we were still a couple of courting teenagers. We enjoyed taking silly pictures and looking at this historic building located across and down the street a short distance from Greek Bros.
