Spent an hour outside by the fireplace and had some great cocktails. Ambience is lively and service was good.

Stayed at the hotel across the road, had this place recommended to me. Typical pub, great view from the windows. Good selection of beers. The wings are very good; lemongrass and rosemary. Service was good with attentive servers

My son and I go to the Uptown Victoria Brown's every time he comes home from Vancouver for a visit. All of the server's are very friendly from start to end. We usually end up in Anne Tu's section, and she goes that extra mile to make your time at Brown's special. The ambiance is very upbeat and the food... More

We enjoy Brown's for good food, great beverages and super service. Although it can be a bit noisy, the people watching is great!

This bar/restaurant is across the street from the Doubletree. Easy access, moderately busy, comprehensive menu with interesting options and very, very cold beer. Server was attentive.

We came back for dinner a Sunday evening dinner, which worked out well. I had a tasty pepperoni pizza (special for $11.), plus a cold beer. Did not have to wait for a table, however they stuck us in the back corner near the bathrooms, & need to fix the bathroom door, as it "slams shut!! Our staff member was... More

We like the danamite roll at Browns. I know.... who would have thought.. bur we order the roll every time we are in Browns. The Halibut burger was amazing. Our server that night was a bartender (She told us) who was working the dinning room that night for a change, she was very pleasant and attentive. The lime in my... More

We just enjoyed dinner at Brown's. Nice ambience, Great friendly service from all staff. We ordered seafood which is always a measure of the skill of the chef. It was very enjoyable indeed. Just one bit of constructive critique. Turn down the music. I know that we, as well as all we know stopped going to Earls because of the... More

Enjoyed Browns twice in 3 days and not disappointed with the food or service. The only issue I found was with the dessert menu as it is very limited and could use a gluten free option. The Thai chicken soup was delicious and so were the burgers and the happy hour $4.00 wine was even better.

We were in Victoria for the Royals arrival Sept 24/16 and needed a quick great place for dinner after the event. Browns SocialHouse was along our search and I had never been so we put our name on the wait list. We were seated in about 10 mins which was great for how busy it was but everything went downhill...

Description
We've spread our wings and opened our first Browns Socialhouse on Vancouver Island. We're centrally located at the exciting new development, "The Falls", in the heart of downtown Victoria and adjacent to the world famous Empress Hotel and Victoria Conference Centre. This location draws in tourists and locals alike. Hope to see you there!
