Vic's Wins Again

Vic's has never disappointed and has been a favorite for years. The seafood dishes are delightful particularly the shrimp and grits.

My son recently had his wedding reception at Vic's on the River. I cannot say enough about how professional the staff was at Vic's. We had several things to bring up to the Stoddard room and the staff helped bring all the boxes and things up for us. When the reception was over Joey allowed us to come back a... More

Good food and service. Try the meatloaf and macaroni ( I know it sounds crazy but it is really good). I ordered it for my son so I had to taste it...WOW.

Wonderful food, drink and hospitable staff. Right on the riverfront, with a beautiful view. Easy walking distance to Bay and River Street attractions, shops and restaurants.

This restaurant was recommended to my family and I by a local who was running the ghost tours. It was a lot pricier than expected, but I guess that speaks well to us since he thought we could afford that, haha. There is A LOT of seafood, so if you're not a seafood fan, you'll be limited on what you... More

The atmosphere (eating outside) was great. The service was average to above, but one of our orders had to be sent back because the steak was terribly undercooked. And the length of the wait for the replacement was not acceptable. Furthermore, seated next to the maitre-d stand, (which was often unattended), the wind kept blowing napkins over onto our table...

This is one of Savannah's high end restaurant, so some normal foods get a bit froufrou. The service is great and the decor is beautiful. Unfortunately the history of the place is better than the food. Sherman's officers used the building as offices during their occupation of Savannah bthey left a wonderful map of Sherman's March from Chatanooga to Savannah... More

On a hot & humid day, and after a two hour tour, we were soooo ready for this terrific restaurant! We did have lunch reservations, which was good. Fabulous food, great view of the Savannah River, right in the middle of the River Street scene, and such very friendly staff!! We had the shrimp & grits that they are famous... More
