We went to celebrate our anniversary and the hotel recommended Vic's. It was very popular and right on the river in an old historic building that was taken over by the Army during the Civil War and even has a neat hand drawn map which was found on a wall during renovation. The atmosphere was nice, however the salad was... More

My husband and I went here recently on a date night. We were very pleased with the staff and ambiance. The cocktails were quite delicious and the food was amazing. Their Calamari is definitely a must!

On a recent visit to Savannah my wife and I ate at Vic's. We were told the food was great but it was a little noisy. We sat in one of the smaller rooms by a window and it wasn't noisy at all. I would recommend to ask to sit there because the main dining room was a bit noisy... More

We ate at this restaurant one night and had to return the following night, so good was the food. On the first occasion my wife had the pan seared scallops and I had the South Carolina mussels and on the following night I demolished the scallops while my wife enjoyed the crispy fried wild Georgia shrimp. Everything was beautifully presented... More

Vic's came recommended to me so I made a reservation online before my trip to Savannah and it was a very busy place so I am glad I did. The restaurant is quaint and charming with a piano player providing ambience. The atmosphere was lively. The menu is classic southern food in very large portions. If you aren't a big... More

We sat outside since they said inside was all booked with reservations even though it didn't appear to be busy inside. The food was delicious and service was good. I ordered the veggie plate and they were wonderful. There was enough to take home left overs. However it was a little too pricey for me.

We had lunch at Vic's, outdoor dining, street side. View was great, as was the service. The staff were very efficient. I had the shrimp and it was very good, big shrimp!!! My husband had a 'burger', was very happy with it. Would recommend it, and relaxing and enjoyable lunch!
