Victoria House

Victoria HouseIf you just happen to be in downtown Victoria this summer, you should stop at the Victoria House, across from Stieger Lake. The food is amazing. Think huge portions, inexpensive options and the best nachos. Their patio seating is the perfect vantage point for all of your dining needs. It sits across the street from The Social, an ice cream parlor thats kitty corner from Enki Brewery. Fun Fact: The Victoria House is owned by the same group as Cuzzys Brickhouse in Chaska and Cuzzy’s Downtown in Minneapolis.

The Social

The SocialUp next is a personal favorite of mine, an Ice Cream Parlor. The Social across from the Victoria House in Victoria has 16 different ice cream flavors, sundaes, shakes and malts. If that weren’t enough, they also added Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, Nachos and Pretzels to the menu. With outdoor seating and a view of Steiger Lake, it’s hard to not be a favorite of mine. They are also next to the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail so you could bike there or just walk off some of the calories after.
