This was our second time at Vic's and like the first time, we enjoyed the experience. We were staying at the River Street Inn so it was within walking distance. Nice choices on the menu, delicious food & wine, a very attentive, pleasant waitress and a beautiful view of the river…what more could we ask for. We definitely recommend Vic's... More

Xmas Eve in Savannah. A great choice for us. This place completes the beauty of this city... Location is great in a former cotton house. A great river view. Valet parking is available, details on the web. Live piano music was making the evening better. Staff was professional and helpful. Food very tasty. At least the salmon and the Gaudi... More

We visited Vic's On The River on a chilly, rainy December Monday evening. It was slow, so we didn't have to worry about walking in with no reservation. We were able to be seated in the bar at a window with a view out over the river. They gave us a tablet to select drinks from. This was actually a... More

I had the pleasure of dining here with company colleagues recently. The food was incredible- I had the baked oysters (perfection) and the pecan encrusted flounder (exquisite). As much as I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the historic building, I enjoyed 3 key players there that really made my experience unforgettable. Starting with the Manager Kathy who was...

Whilst visiting Savannah just before Christmas our B and B (see my 1895 Inn review) host recommended Vic's On The River for dinner. We had made a reservation which you should do. We each had a different entree' and all of them were outstanding. The starters were equally delicious. The soups are home made as are the salad dressings. I... More

Two cabdrivers recommended this place. (Two!) So, I did the research and found it is well regarded all around. We had a very good meal -- food was well prepared and plated. Generous portions. Service was very professional and attentive. It's a lively atmosphere here at Vic's, adding to the whole experience of eating in and visiting Savannah. I particularly... More

We made advance reservations for Vic's so that we could be assured of a really nice view when we hit Savannah for dinner on our first night there. Well, it didn't happen. We were seated away from a vacant window table against the wall. Our waiter was admittedly new to the dinner scene and had been promoted from a lunch... More

Either side is great to sit on. The front faces the Main Street so watching people walking by is fun. The backside faces the river which is gorgeous. Great food, great service.

The service left a lot to be desired in this tired-looking restaurant. Everything we ate was better than expected given the lackluster waitstaff and out-dated decor of this riverfront restaurant. The server was actually rude. There are plenty of better options in Savannah.

Our last evening in Savannah we decided to splurge a little on more of a fine-dining experience and more of a traditional Southern menu offering. My husband and I were both so pleased with everything about this restaurant. We had a lovely view of the river. The waitstaff was knowledgeable about the menu and the area, and were very prompt...
