We got there well past noon for lunch, you will fall in love with the building right away but after ordering food you'll realize their service is not so good. We waited a long time to get our food with no reasonable explanation...the place was practically empty.

Before visiting Savannah, I made a reservation for 5:45pm, Sunday (one week ago). The positive reviews for Vic's on the River influenced me. We were looking forward to a great evening, but right away problems were evident. Valet service is not available on Sunday, so my husband dropped me off while he drove around the busy streets looking for a... More

We were there for a wedding rehearsal dinner and had the whole 4th floor. The service was stellar and the food was perfect. I had the flounder and my husband had a rib eye. The flavors were delightful. Chocolate mouse cake for desert, yum yum.

Nice place, whether you want coffee and pastry, sandwiches inside, or al fresco dining on the deck. Food is fresh and delicious. Service is attentive, but they don't hover, plus they accomodated our dog on the deck. Moderate to pricey but food and setting is worth it. Most notable for history buffs is the Sherman campaign map drawn on the... More

Read many good reviews and received recommendations to visit Vic's. Unfortunately, we must have been the one bad experience. The fried green tomatoes were great along with the few drinks we had. Lunch took forever, like over an hour and when we received our food, the fries were cold.... not a huge deal, they could send us more. Well, I... More

Vic's is generally highly regarded for the view. That it has. But the food is just good. It is generally not creatively made or presented. It's highly unusual for nothing to stand out from a restaurant meal. But Vic's succeeded in underwhelming on all counts.

Both the environment and waitstaff were excellent but the food was nothing special. The craw fish beignets was overrated and everything else was just average.

We were pleasantly surprised as we went up from the river entrance and found a lovely dining room. The food and service was very good and much better in every way than the more famous :Pink House". There was an excellent menu and the experience was one of our best in Savannah.

We ate dinner and lunch on two different days and enjoyed both meals. The service is excellent and so is the food. They are very accommodating of our gluten free requirement starting with the menu and checking if specials can be prepared gluten free.
