Lovely place for Dinner with Friends

We ate at Vics for our last dinner in Savannah. Piano player added a nice ambiance. Our waiter was able to have something off the menu created for one in our party and went out of his way to get gluten-free crackers for another. My husband loved the meatloaf. The ladies all went with the Shrimp... read more

Very sorry that the food vanished too quickly to share pictures, but after a 4 hour drive from Myrtle Beach, we were famished. Greeted by very polite and pleasant staff, seated promptly with a nice view of the waterfront. The special was tilapia in a lemon herb sauce on rice with green beans. The fish was perfectly cooked and the... More

As on a previous visit to Vic's a couple of years ago, we requested a table for two near the river as it was a birthday celebration. We had gone through our concierge at Cotton Sail to accomplish this. Again, as previously, we were once again seated on the street side and the hostess staff at the front desk was... More

The location is perfect, and the food is great. The tough part is figuring out what to order. We have eaten here several times and each has been great. I highly recommend the Crab Shrimp and Oyster Stew and the Fried Green Tomato BLT.

We were fortunate that my sister's wedding reception was held at Vic's on the River upstairs in the banquet area and had a fantastic experience. The bartender and servers were great and the food was really delicious also! Although we had a beer-wine bar up where we were located, we did walk downstairs to order liquor and the bartender and...

Vic's on the River in Savannah should be rated #1 in Savannah. The dinner was absolutely outstanding, the tomato bisque soup, the shrimp & fish and the Chocolate Mousse Cake. The service was great, the staff terrific. It will be tops on our list whenever we visit Savannah.

This is our first time in Savannah and after some advice from Trip Advisor and a local we tried Vic's on the river. We were walking along the river and entered thru the coffee shop taking the elevator up to the street level entrance. My wife had the shrimp with grits and I had the reuben with mashed potatoes instead... More

We happened onto Vic's when the wait for lunch at Huey's down the street was too long. We followed the sign ventured into a dark bar. We didn't expect much when we learned that the restaurant was through the bar and up an elevator to the 4th floor. But what a pleasant surprise!! The elevator opened into a beautiful, bright...

Had a girls weekend in Savannah. There were 10 of us. They say us downstairs in a sleep room. We had a good time until the manager came over and asked us to keep it down because they had sat a table of older individuals next to us and they could not hear. I felt that is was very rude... More

Went for a late lunch. Hubby had the fried oysters and they were so fresh and lightly breaded. I had the shrimp and grits, which is a twist from the Charleston version. Excellent! We were seated with a view of the river and watched a dredger and a cargo ship go by. Love the ambiance of the restaurant and will... More
