What do we like about Vic's? Pretty much everything including the decor, the location on the banks of the Savannah River, delicious food with a southern attitude and great service. The bar is a wonderful place to either enjoy your meal or have a cocktail made by Angie. As an aside, you have to love a place that calls itself... More

Vic’s is set in an old building on the river in Savannah. The deco is very nice with lots of historical touches. Would that the attitude of the hostess and the food were as good. We decided after walking part of the Savannah River walk that Vic’s on the River looked like a good place for an early dinner. It... More

We had a group of 6 for dinner while visiting Savannah. Each one of us had an amazing meal with excellent service. We were told the seafood is brought in daily and it's totally true. I had fried shrimp and oysters and it was the best I've ever had. Rashid our waiter also did a great job. I just wish... More

Call ahead and ask for a window if possible. The views of river street are beautiful and you may catch that large barge going by that makes you think the restaurant is moving. Fine silver and place settings, an attentive staff, and a chef all combine for a lovely experience. Parking may be a challenge so go early.

terrible beyond words! Worst place in savannah. Went here today for lunch and left without eating. Staff was so rude we left after our drinks were severed. I have never done that. Deck was empty. Just us and one table. So it wasn't like they were crowded. With so many choices do yourself a favor and go some where else.... More

As always Vicks serve the best food and the best place. As you can see this place is always packed. Well known and great location on the river of savannah. Can't beat their steak and scalloped meal. Really great. It's a must to visit Vicks whenever you come to savannah. More than awesome!

We stopped here for a late lunch last July and again yesterday, en route to Amelia Island. A perfect 5-star meal again. Setting and the view are wonderful. Service was impeccable. Food was delicious: fried green tomato with goat cheese and balsamic reduction and sundried tomato aioli to start was quite possibly the most delicious appetizer I've ever eaten. I... More

This is a lovely restaurant on the River in Savannah. Very charming inside. Service was great. We went on a Sat night and there was a piano player/singer performing. The singing might have been a bit too much as it was a bit loud, but the piano music was nice. The food was good. not the best I've ever had,... More

stopped for a late lunch. Robert our waiter was SUPER/ Highly recommended the crawfish beignets and they delivered. This is strictly an appetizer--you will NOT be full with a single order, but it is a nice change. My flounder po' boy tasted "fishy." My friend had the shrimp and grits (recommended as the best in Savannah--by the same person who... More
