With only one night in Savannah, we headed to Vic's on popular River Street. The fried green tomatoes, blackened shrimp with grits, redfish (normally only on the lunch menu but graciously substituted for the listed salmon thanks to our accommodating server) were all fine choices. Service was very good. Prices are reasonable. The ambiance could be more intimate, but overall... More

Walk in and it's a coffee shop. Take the elevator to the 4th floor and there's fine dining! My husband ordered crawfish beignets to start. Not what he expected as far as beignets but good none the less. The chicken liver appetizer (yes chicken liver!!!) was delicious! My husband does not like liver but agreed it was really good. I...

The restaurant came highly recommended by a friend of our daughters whose family lives in Savannah. There are many areas to be seated and tables are spaced nicely lending itself to private chatting. The menu had a nice selection although a few more local fish offerings would have been more impressive. Both of our selections; mussels & the fried shrimp/oysters... More

We had a lovely large group dinner...without reservations! Service was casual and efficient in a very lovely and sophisticated location! Vic's was recommended by Homewood Suites, otherwise we would have never know about the elegant 4th floor location above the coffee shop!

We sort of fell into reserving here and boy am I glad we did. This is a gorgeous restaurant that's part of the restored Cotton Exchange development area. Efficient and modern service, great menu with new twists on Southern classics. The grouper dish and the local blue crabcake main course were the best we'd ever had. The star of the... More

Vic's is an average high-priced restaurant. The small dining room and bar is contained on a second floor (from River Street) location. The French onion soup is as good as most. The crab cake dinner comes with two cakes the size of donut holes. They were flavorful but tiny for the price. My friend enjoyed the meatloaf. The service was... More

Third visit to Vic's and am once again impressed. Atmosphere is comfortable and views of the river are relaxing. Have enjoyed both lunch and dinner here and every dish is well prepared and service (thank you Andy and Stefan) is always top notch. Once ask in advance for a fish dish that was on the Lunch Menu but not the... More

We ate here three times while visiting Savannah. They had great wine and a piano player most nights. One night he was a no show! The food is great! They have great views of the river too. I really cannot wait to visit Savannah again so that I can eat at Vic's.
