We had a great meal at the Shrimp Factory and our waiter, Chandler, was excellent. Can't say enough good things about our meal...my husband kept hinting that he wouldn't mind eating a second meal there, but we saved that for another visit.

What was I thinking? My husband said no, let's go somewhere else. I was hungry. It was a cheap joint, with mediocre service, and mediocre food, with overpriced entrees. We would not go back. Sorry Shrimp Factory. JMHO.....

Long story short. Prompt service. Hostess efficient. Waiter efficientish. We got everything we ordered and it was mighty tasty. But he was forgetful and kind of overwhelmed looking. The food for the price was a small portion & the staff just wasn't "friendly"... They weren't mean but just kind of blah.

I thought it was a little pricey for what you got. You are definitely paying for the location and not the food.

We stopped for a quick lunch as we visited Savannah. We had great service from Courtney. We all ordered shrimp. My husbands shrimp and grits was wonderful, my shrimp salad was very tasty and our son loved his shrimp po-boy. We really enjoyed our lunch.

The Shrimp Factory is located in Savannah Downtown directly at the river. Sometimes larger ships are passing by. The restaurant is offering among other things especially excellent seafood. The pricing is reasonable. The service was good and we enyoyed the atmoshere very much.

Went to the Shrimp Factory again this year for our first meal upon arriving in Savannah. Things weren't as good last year and we did want to give it another try this year. Sorry to say but the lunch meal that we order still was not that great as we have had in the past. The seafood bisque is again... More

The Shrimp Factory has been around for years, and I always somehow had the idea it was a tourist trap with lousy food. How nice to be proved wrong! Apppreciated that they took reservations, and we were seated immediately in the elevated area at the back, which provided a nice view of the goings-on of River Street. Parking lot right... More
