It was a white table cloth restaurant, with multiple levels (floors) of seating. Menu was nice with reasonably wide selections. All courses were elegantly presented and food was tasty and portions were smallish. Waitress was very pleasant and amiable. There were three of us and each ordered different items. I asked for substitution with an appetizer which was not listed... More

Our family was wandering the river trying to figure out where to grab a late lunch. The hostess outside got my attention when she mentioned the $5 kid meals. The dining room is beautiful and the food was very good and affordable. The kids meals were a good size and came with drinks. I was so happy that a spontaneous... More

My husband and I dined at Vic's on a recent trip to Savannah. I had received recommendations from friends to eat there, and wanted to surprise my husband with a romantic dinner. Vic's was the perfect location for our evening... beautiful building, quiet environment, and delicious food! My husband ordered one of their evening's specials -- the stuffed bass --... More

We went for my boyfriend's birthday and everything about the evening was perfect. From our waitress, Sabrina, to the food and atmosphere we couldn't have been happier. Being Savannah locals, we'll be back!

We waited too late to get reservations at a reasonable time, so elected to eat at the bar at Vic’s. The atmosphere here is very pleasant and stylish. The bartenders were friendly, but also busy and efficient. A piano player directly behind us was very talented, but he was a little loud when you are sitting that close. I’m sure... More

Visited Savannah for the day and this restaurant was recommended by tour company. Great recommendation. We arrived early for dinner since we had not eaten lunch. Transition between services and the lunch time manager really went out of his way to accommodate while we were waiting (sorry forgot name). Came in restaurant with a waiter, who cheerfully told us about... More

Our group of 5 stopped in around 12:30 on a Sunday afternoon. Place wasn't too crowded yet and the food coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. Unfortunately we'd never know for sure. After receiving our appetizer - fried green tomatoes - which were very good, we sat for an hour while everyone that came in after us was served.... More

We arrived for our 6:00 reservation and the table was ready - a bit of surprise since this was "Oktoberfest" in Savannah and the area was packed with tourists (like my partner and I.) But we noticed that one table was vacant outside on their lovely patio, so we asked to be seated there. Everything was just right, food, service,... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner with a fairly large tour group, so we were limited to two choices of meals. I chose the herb-crusted salmon in creole mustard cream sauce. The salmon was a large piece of fish that appeared to be cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, it was served luke warm. In addition, while I had been concerned that the... More

Had high hopes for this location on the river. Service was poor, an hour to get a starter salad. We were constantly waving at our server to get attention and this was a Thursday night. Main course was fried and greasy. The place feels like a tourist trap. I'm sure there are better options in savannah.
