Cindy and I were having big fun, touring some sunny southern locations on our way to visit the granchillens in Florida. We stopped in Charleston and there I had absolutely the best Shrimp and Grits that I had ever spooned into my face hole. A day or two later, at the Shrimp Factory in Savannah, a nice young server suggested... More

Our meal was delicious! Fried shrimp, shrimp/crab chowder, raw oysters, Ceasar salad. We went in about 11:30 on a Saturday afternoon and in no time the restaurant was full.

A nicely decorated old building with a menu full of shrimp and other sea foods. Good sized portions at a reasonable price.

We have been to the Shrimp Factory several times during our visits to Savannah's waterfront located between Bay Street and River Street, and each meal was great! The menu specializes in quality seafood but other choices are available. Prices are reasonable and we like the decor and ambiance.

Food was delicious. Their Chatham artillery punch was unbelievably great. We had the shrimp appetizer, filet mignon and crab cake, and snow crab. Nothing disappointed. Best part though was our Cindy, our server. Definitely recommend her and the restaurant as a must on your trip to savannah.

Shrimp Factory easily accommodated my party of eight and late reservation. The staff was genuinely friendly- the essence of southern hospitality. All eight guests were truly delighted. The food exceeded all expectations. Likely the best shrimp and grits I have ever had (two days later and my mouth is still watering). Other outstanding food choices included the Oysters Rockefeller, Bark... More

We came in and were told about a 25 minute wait. We ended up going to the bar because there was no wait. The bartender who was also our waitress recommended the shrimp and grits and then the pine bark stew. I got the shrimp and grits, my aunt got the shrimp puff and my mom got the pine bark... More
