Overall the staff was friendly and attentive. Our server was very nice and quick on drink refills. My biggest issue was everything came out lukewarm. Between my friend and myself, no food was actually hot (2 entrees and an appetizer). Everything tasted great but the...More

The Shrimp Factory is my favorite restaurant in Savannah on River Street. The seafood is always fresh and prepared just right! The hush puppies are delicious and are perfect with the entrees. I would recommend this restaurant is you want a great dinner!

We were seated promptly and server polite. We had crab cake sandwich and shrimp tacos. Both were good.

Very slow service with overcooked shrimp & crab legs. Several of our shells were empty on our steamer platter. They were out of pasta and took forever to ask what else we would like. Would not go back again!!!

Service was very good but the food was only adequate. Shrimp in the shrimp & grits were tough; very few shrimp in the spicy shrimp pasta dish. Caesar salads were good. If you have limited time, suggest trying another place.
