Had a wonderful dining experience at Vic's this past weekend. Tyler was our waiter and was very helpful at picking out our dinner choices. I had the shrimp and grits which I highly recommend.. I have a gluten allergy and there were many dishes to choose from. Vic's is a must for lunch or dinner while visiting Savannah.

First of all let me say we have eaten in Vic,s every time we are in Savannah but we may not go back again. The Bartenders and the service at the bar was great as usual, then we went in to our table. Our server was very unatentive, we had to ask for our bread while he served the other... More

There are a few places we visited that had mediocre tourist catered food. This isn't one of them. Great quiet lunch spot with beautiful view of the river from the upstairs dinning room. My burger was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend stopping at this place during a visit.

Vic's has a nice setting (river view through window). The food and service were both excellent and everyone in our party of 14 enjoyed the experience. The prices were also very reasonable. We all would highly recommend visitors to Savannah include Vic's On the River in their top restaurant list.

Enter on River street-through a coffee shop, a quick ride up 4 floors in the elevator and you are transported into a beautifully appointed dining area. As our party was casually dressed (no Tee shirts) for the extreme Savannah July Summer heat, we were surprised that we were allowed in frankly; the place is beautiful! Hardwood floors, nice table cloths,... More

The server gave us the fruit jelly to go with them but told us usually you have to ask for it so be sure to. Only complaint was food took a... More

The server, Michael, helped me decide, and God bless him! He was a great help and made himself perfectly available but not hovering. I had the Wild Georgia Shrimp and Smoked Cheddar Stone Ground Grits, because I wanted to choose locally sourced stuff, and it was SO AWESOMELY FRESH AND FANTASTIC!!! It had what was described as an applewood smoked... More

We stopped for lunch on our latest mini vacation to Savannah, GA. Our server was very friendly and knew the menu well, so he was able to help us with our decisions to order. We tried the fish tacos, ribs and fried green tomatos. All were very good! The restaurant was very lovely, with a great view of the main... More

Vic's is a good, solid restaurant. Anything on the menu will be done well, and the service is solid. The atmosphere is quiet and inviting of conversation.

We have friends who live north of Sav., and we live south. Vic's is where we always want to meet up . We have a delicious lunch and enjoy the ambience of the lovely restaurant. I can honestly say that every waiter/waitress we have had has been helpful, welcoming, friendly and efficient. The restaurant must have an excellent manager. It's... More
