“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Restaurant was conveniently located to our hotel and they were able to seat us outside without reservations....highly recommend reservations as others that came later had quite a wait. The onion soup and bisque were tasty. The crawfish beignet and pecan flounder also good although the flounder was a bit pricey. Would pass on the chocolate brownie in the future as there are better desserts to be had---pralines anyone? Pleasant evening and lovely waitress.

“Wonderful happy we found it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

My husband and my oldest son went there for a wonderful dinner . It was great experience . Which was so nice because we were there to celebrate my sons promotion in the military from pfc to specialist. It's so nice to go to a place that cares about their guests and what brought them in on that day! Great place to enjoy and celebrate life's special occasions.

“Dinner at Vic's Worth It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

When in Savannah, don't miss going to Vic's for dinner. Wait staff knowledgable and courteous, wine selection is superb (decanted upon our request) & food excellent. I had the seafood grill (salmon, shrimp & scallops) and substituted risotto (perfectly prepared) while my wife had the grouper (excellent as well!). Worth it!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Our experience was ok, but not memorable. The view and service were good, but the food wasn't anything to write home about. When we first moved to Savannah we heard a lot about Vic's, but unfortunately it just didn't live up to the hype.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Very pretty restaurant overlooking the river. The shrimp and the lamb shank were both excellent. Our waiter was great too. We didn't have a river view but could hear the piano from our table. Very nice atmosphere!
