Came to Victoria for an overnight trip. We took advantage of happy hour which had really good choices for drinks and meals. The ahi tuna bowl was really good. Since it was Saturday around 6 there was a lot of college age kids and tourist so it was good to get a reservation earlier in the day. Noise level as expected with that type of crowd which we wanted to be part of. We would recommend this location for anybody out of the area looking for something new like we did.

Meal was great but very noisy table right next to us.
We did not complain but our server was very aware of it & apologized for it.
Pleasant surprise when we weren’t charged for our beverages . Kudos Earls for being aware of customers comfort!

We went for Valentine's Day and Happy Hour and we weren't sure what to expect but we were so pleasantly surprised! My boyfriend had the burger and it was delicious! I tried a couple of things on the Happy Hour Menu and really enjoyed it. Service was fast and ambiance was perfect! We'll definitely be back! I want to try more things on the Happy Hour Menu!

Last time we visit Earl's in Victoria -- felt like a rock bar. Providing ear plugs should be mandatory on arrival as noise level was extreme. Tables too close together. Floor under our table filthy. Serving staff lacklustre. Very poor experience. Not at all of the standard of the chain's locations in Vancouver, Prince George or Calgary.

The service and food were incredible. LOL, I really felt old as at least on this day it was a very young and, enthusiastic crowd. That said, the patrons were amazing and fun just like Earls is. That's probably why they all hang out there. It was fun being in a college environment again even if just for an hour. I highly recommend the Happy Hour menu with great food offerings as well as drinks. We'll be back for sure!

Food and service was great. Good options for kids. Biggest challenge was the noise level—very difficult for conversation and overall too distracting. Wooden bench table was uncomfortable. Requested a booth for elderly parent. Most large booths had only two people seated at them. Would have preferred a comfortable table in a quieter spot of the restaurant.

Hi Vail, Thank you for the review. I will personally look at our noise levels to ensure the music is not set too loud. I will also provide feedback to our head office team regarding the uncomfortable wooden bench seats. Thank you, Christina Hawkshaw General Manager

We had 4 shared plates, a tasty bottle of wine and the ginger cake to finish off. Our server, Emily was top-notch. She was friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was good, the service even better but the "music" - if you can call it that - was abominable! There was nothing but pounding bass in the background and one piece went on for at least 10 or 12 minutes and was seriously difficult to listen to. We talked to the two lovely hostesses at the front door about it as we were leaving and they were extremely sympathetic - they told us they go home with headaches every night because of the "music". We would have stayed for after dinner drinks but couldn't wait to get away from the racket. Please fix this for the enjoyment of all of your customers!

Hi there: We went to Earls kitchen and Bar-Victoria for a Birthday Celebration with our eldest son and he s wife. The service was excellent, and our son enjoyed their meals immensely. They had the fish and chips and the Alfredo penne. My wife and I had the 6 ounce surf and turf
with 6 oz steak and Lobster, and I had the 6 oz steak with prawns. My wife’s Lobster was fantastic, but the steak not so much. Too salty for our liking, and the asparagus wasn’t trimmed properly. I would keep the surf and turf the meat. It was a good experience for our son which
is what we wanted, but us, not so much. Thanks.
