We stopped in for lunch and had a great time and wonderful food! Chatham Artillery punch - you gotta try it! Fried asparagus was great and the fried green tomato BLT was AWESOME! Great service, friendly server and a pleasant atmosphere. Will def come back for another meal on our next visit!

Having been here before we really wanted the stuffed mushrooms. They were out. They were out of many things that night. Then after finally picking something that sounded appetizing I get my food only to find it with hair in it. It was a let down.

After seeing so many reviews gave a try, but was not satisfied with the taste of food. the food was ok and pricey and just because they are on the river street, but its a closed one and you can't have view of outside.not sure why so many good ratings, I had tasty sea food in better places than this.

The food was very good and the waitress was very pleasant. I tried a new martini that was quite delightful. ;-) I don't recall the name but it had blueberry and cucumber flavors.

We have come to Savannah several times over the years and we always start our visit with shrimp and grits at the Shrimp Factory. Our waiter was friendly and attentive without rushing us, even on a Friday night. It is right on the river with great views.

Excellent fried asparagus. Excellent bisque. Excellent rolls with pimento. Grilled mahi was overcooked and dry. Grouper was excellent. Filet with blue cheese was excellent. Shrimp was excellent.

I had a lovely beer and great boiled shrimp lunch. Julia, the bartender, added great local color. Her passion for Savannah was most welcomed as she shared many "back stories" of where to go. Wonderful experience.
