Suburbanites in Howard County have a new restaurant and pub to enjoy, and this one isn’t part of a chain. Victoria Gastro Pub has become a popular spot for families and for those with a jones for imported brews. On the pub side, customers can choose from 24 beers on tap and 20 pages of imported bottle beers. The dining rooms have all been comfortably appointed in rich, deep hues, with sturdy wooden chairs, cozy upholstered banquettes and warm lighting. Standouts on the menu include cornmeal fried oysters with chipotle aioli, asparagus fries, lobster grilled cheese, “sloppy Joseph’s” (barbecued beef short ribs and cheddar) and chorizo meatloaf. Savor desserts such as the roasted pineapple upside-down cake and the Baugher’s Farm apple dumplings. The pub offers live music every Sunday night. Open seven days for lunch and dinner. 8201 Snowden River Parkway, Columbia, 410-750-1880
