Okay so it was thanksgiving and this is a bit of a tourist trap but that didn't excuse the thick sludge of a chowder and a bisque that I could stand a spoon in. Fried platter was piled high but not as tasty as bubba shrimp chain and the mahi mahi was clearly frozen on gloopy linguini. Service was good... More

This was my first time in Savannah and we were told we should make a stop at the Shrimp Factory. We were NOT misinformed. This place was great, friendly staff, awesome fried green tomatoes, and really good atmosphere. We sat at the bar and Joel was not only our bartender but our tour guide....best Bloody Mary ever!

I brought my family and friends to dine at The Shirmp Factory. We enjoy all that is offered on the Riverfront. Right away, my children saw that the bathroom was nasty; I notified staff, who quickly addressed the matter. Once the salads came out, I witnessed a baby roach crawling from mine. The witress came over, apologized, and took salads... More

We went to the Shrimp Factory the first night of our three day trip to Savannah. I had the fried oysters, the best I have ever eaten. I am from Boston, Mass. We know seafood. It was perfectly cooked. I will eat there again.

Expect to pay tourist prices on all places on River st. Food was great, staff friendly.... friend green tomatoes were pretty darn good. I tried shrimp & grits. Not a fan of grits I found, however. .. the dish was enjoyable. Will stop again.

Went here for lunch one day and wasn't anything special. The food was average and nothing special on the menu. It is a little surprising considering its on the river with a lot of traffic walking past it.

Very busy place but our server was really friendly and efficient. Great that entrees include a delicious Caesar salad to start. Our vegetarian pasta was perfect and the NY steak was great too. Only fault was that wifi password had to be requested otherwise a good place to eat on River Street

Good seafood and atmosphere. Price is a little high for what you get. Had to beg for drink refills when eating spicy shrimp. Will probably try another restaurant when we return to Savannah.

We went to the Shrimp Factory on a whim on our first night in Savannah, and were very impressed. The scallop appetizer was fabulous, and the Caesar salad was great, too. I had the stuffed flounder & my husband had the filet with crab cake. He said his was the second best steak he'd ever eaten. It was perfectly cooked... More
