The Shrimp Factory is a favorite of ours for lunch. We love the seafood bisque with sherry and the blueberry muffins. Great on a cold afternoon on River Street.

We had a large group eat at the Shrimp Factory this week and had a great meal. Brandon was a great server and was very patient with our group and kids.

Food is amazing. We went with a couple of our waiters, Ford's, recommendations. Best ever bloody Mary and sangria. Fried shrimp and a huge pot of pine bark stew

One of the best shrimp and grits meals I've ever had. Excellent appetizers...in fact, if we ever go back we may make a meal off the appetizer menu! Very cool old place, very good service. Nestled amongst shopping, so the best of both worlds! Try the crab cakes...awesome!! A little pricier than other local restaurants, but kinda worth it. :)

Love the Shrimp Factory - stopped in for lunch and had by far the best lemonade ever! Ordered a bunch of appetizers for lunch - all were fabulous! If you're in Savannah and taking a River Street walk be sure to stop in @ the Shrimp Factory!

We had dinner at The Shrimp Factory, Chandler was our server and he did an excellent job! I didn't want a high meal, but wanted flounder. He put together just what I wanted and had my flounder grilled and blackened. It was exceptional. Had a glass of wine he recommended to accentuate the taste of the food. It was very... More

Like many people doing the same, we strolled River St. stopping for drinks at the open bars and restaurants shopping, people watching, and dodging strollers.

They are right on River Street in an area frequented by tourist so it has the standard wait times when you decide to go at peak times to eat. We were seated rather quickly and we were instantly asked about drinks and appetizers. I had my standard Arnold Palmer to drink, I ordered the Shrimp and crab bisque along with... More
