We came here for lunch in January. I highly recommend the sea food stew (it has a fun name, but I can't remember it) and the oyster po-boy. Food was high quality and hot. Would definitely come back!

Visited for lunch. Started with the fried green tomatoes, they are the best I've ever had. Then had the fried flounder sandwich, a huge filet on a buttered hoagie roll, excellent choice. Would highly recommend.

We dined here for lunch and had a very friendly and helpful waitress who catered to our every need and gave many suggestions when we were unsure of what to order. I enjoyed my fresh grilled mahi with rice and asparagus, but my husband was not very pleased with his shrimp and grits because the portion was very small and... More

This was our first time in Savannah and decided to eat at Shrimp Factory. First, our waitress was Cheryl. She was extremely informative about everything on the menu and recommended several items. Cheryl was a very vibrant young lady who was very attentive to our questions and needs. We could tell Cheryl enjoyed her job very much. She was very... More

Shrimp Factory is OK and is your typical tourist restaurant. Service & food is good, but not memorable or remarkable. Provides a convenient place to eat. Comfortable & clean. Would recommend not eating every meal on River St, as there are some great restaurants not far from this location.

We enjoyed our shrimp meals (fried shrimp and a shrimp po-boy); the shrimp were very good and fresh and the service was excellent. The fries, however were average. Perhaps we expected more, as they mentioned 'chive fries' on the menu, but we couldn't discern them from other average fries.

We liked the food and the service. There was live music when we were there. We would recommend reservations after 5pm.

My husband and I both enjoyed our meal there but our grandson would only smell his fish fingers. We took them home and I tried them later cut up in a salad. They were jalapeno spicy! The next morning after our visit, I checked our bank account, as I usually do, and we had almost a 500 dollar charge on... More

We had lunch while walking on River Street. I ordered a shrimp and crab bisque and it was something out of the can only warmer a little bit, no flavor at all. The classic shrimp cocktail was mediocre since the shrimp were still medium frozen. Crab cakes were not so good neither. My husband and daughter pasta was overcooked and... More

I wanted some good shrimp. My wife and I walked the entire length of the river strip looking at the restaurants. They are all very worn. Newest one is "Joe's Crab Shack" on the south end. We selected Shrimp Factory. The prices seemed a little steep but the food was very good. Ana was our server and did a great... More
