The food was fantastic! We had a table near the windows with a view of the river. My wife ordered the meat loaf. The meat loaf was to die for and I don't even like meat loaf. I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was the best shrimp and grits I ever had. Excellent service and great food.

My friends and I enjoyed eating at Vic's. The waitress was pleasant, and the food was very good. However, the location of our table was less than desirable. Traffic was heavy with everyone entering the restaurant walking by our table as well as people passing by using the elevator up and down to River Street. We asked for another table but were denied. If you visit, be sure to secure a table with a better location, preferably by calling early and asking for a river view.

Savannah has to be one of the most atmospheric cities on the planet and it was therefore a bonus that we got to eat in the very recently installed outdoor seating area overlooking the city form Vics. That and the fact that on a Friday night in Savannah the locals tend to chino up and jacket assist so my shirts and polo might not quite have fitted inside. No problem as the service was excellent and the wine waiters recommend was superb. My steak was beautifully cooked and the accompanying dishes were perfect, same goes for my partners lamb. Informal yet formal dining and the bright lights of downtown just over the road. Excellent, thoroughly recommended.

I am a foodie. I expected this place to be overpriced and touristy since it's in downtown with sweeping river views. I was wrong!!! The waitstaff was superb but the food is a real star! Fresh buttermilk biscuits with honey butter. Opulent Mac n cheese that would make your southern mama jealous! The brisket sandwich on homemade sourdough with Brie! Yum yum yum.. Leave your diet at home and come for some truly gourmet southern cuisine! Really it's that good!
