The Cocktail Makes This Review

We dropped in for lunch not really having a plan. I knew I wanted Boiled Shrimp (which was tasty,but there is better), and my boyfriend had the Mahi Mahi special, which was a great pick! The lunch deal was a good one, so definitely recommend checking in for their lunch menu. However, this would be... read more

The shrimp factory had the worst food we have experienced in Savannah. The calamari was possibly the worst we have ever had. The Cobb Salad looked nothing like the pictures on TripAdvisor or OpenTable. The service would have to be rated 1 - or lower. The Bloody Mary's were 6 ounce glasses of all ice and $11. We would definitely... More

There are many choices of seafood restaurants in Savannah. I set my search for " local seafood". I saw good ratings for Shrimp Factory and it was wonderful, with a riverfront view. The food and service was outstanding. We learned you must specifically ask for local seafood. The waitress was honest and just a few dishes used local seafood. The... More

We dined at the Shrimp Factory last night. The service was excellent, and so was the food I had the Shrimp Cobb Salad, and a Chatham Artillery Punch. My husband had the Fried Shrimp dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and will be back.

I had ate here several times and absolutely loved everything I ordered. But I was sure I did not like shrimp and grits until I tried theirs and now I can't wait until I'm there in September 2015 to have more. The food is always great!

We ordered 1lb of Shrimp and 1lb of Crab Legs and it was very well worth the price. They were cooked perfectly and I could not finish my abundant portion of food. Keep in mind you have to peel the shrimp and crack open the legs, but it was worth the it. Smaller portions are offered on the menu. The... More

We were greeted and sat promptly (Thursday around 6:45 pm). I had the Crab Cakes entree. It came with a Caesar Salad. The salad was incredible! The Crab Cakes were delicious! Our server was attentive and professional. I highly recommend eating here.

We arrived around 2 in the afternoon after a 5 hour drive. The waitress was patient and understanding. The seafood was out of this world! I had fried shrimp and deviled crab. My husband had fried shrimp and oysters. We definitely would go again!
