We were in Victoria visiting and wanted to have dinner. However laws are strict when you have kids under 19 when a restaurant is a bar. Our kids were not allowed in. Finally Earls was different and said yes you can come in. We had...More

We got a private area due to the number of people in our group. Both the service and food was good. In fact the service was the best I had experienced on our trip so far, so it was easy to leave a tip.

We had eaten a big lunch and were not all that hungry. Perhaps, we thought, we could get something nice at Earls as a before bed small-meal. Success, and thanks to the personable Karlina, ours was a pleasant visit. Spent $25

We often head to Earls after work for a quick drink and a bite to work. They have the coldest beer in town, just what you need after a long day on the water :)

It was a different menu and atmosphere than other Earls I have been to before. It was more of a downtown chic style with a live DJ and very loud. The food was fair and the staff very friendly.

The lunchtime atmosphere is more restful than the one we experienced at dinner a year ago. The clam chowder is still reliably good; my brother reported that his steak was very good. Try the yam fries: they're very tasty.

While on vacation in Victoria, we stopped in Earl's for dinner. Hubby ordered the Caesar salad with grilled chicken and I had the Southwestern salad with chicken. We were afraid the noise level would be too much for conversation with our friends, but it was...More
