New owners. They have done a really great job taking over. Had a burger and it was terrific! They also serve breakfast but I haven't tried it yet.

This place reminds me of the lunch counters in New England where I grew up. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is fun. Prices are modest...not a bad place for lunch!

Enjoyed soup and sandwich for lunch. Soups were good and this is a great value in a tourist town. Check it out.

This has been on of our favorite go to places since moving to the island. The mexican burger and the club sandwiches are fantastic. Everything we have tried here has been great but the salads could use a little extra something.

Every town should have a burger joint like Vic's. I had the bacon-ham burger with fries and my wife had the Philly cheese-steak with fries. The sandwiches were both hot, juicy and tasty, but the fries were cooked a couple minutes too long for our tastes. Service was friendly and reasonably quick. The menu was huge and took up most...

If you're looking for a great cheap burger, this is the place to go! Vic is friendly and came and talked with us, and the fries and onion rings are also really good!

I found Vic's by accident-located on a side street. Extensive menu of burgers, seafood, etc. Reasonably priced, fresh ingredients. Clean tables, etc. Local staff friendly and helpful.

Family run. Best true old style drive in burgers on the island! Hand made shakes. Where else on this island can you get lunch for under $10?
