What a find! We stayed over night in Savannah on our way to Florida and wanted a nice dinner. I'm an avid user of Open Table and did research on restaurants in Savannah prior to leaving. When we checked into our hotel on the river they offered to make dinner reservations for us. I explained I had already done so at Vic's on the River. She said with a big smile, "oh it's the best, my favorite in Savannah!" We loved the food, music and atmosphere, although we did ask for a different table than originally given. The back room was a bit tight and very noisy. They were happy to move us to the front room where I could hear my husband talk to me even though they were extremely busy on a Friday night. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Day before Thanksgiving and in town to sight see and stopped at Vic's that evening. Other travelers sitting at the bar area talking about their day and plans so rather than a table, had dinner at the bar. I had the shrimp and grits, the person next to me ordered the scallops. Very good food! Beautiful view of the river. Piano player in the corner. Couldn't ask for much more.

Shrimp and girts had an off taste. Crab stuffed shrimp was excellent. Fried oysters excellent. Pretty restaurant. Our waitress was SLOW and not overwhelmed with tables AND seemed to have an attitude (maybe we should have been dressed in all black so she could identify with us). She brought us water and said she would be back soon. Then she went to a nearby table and removed ONE used soup bowl and walked away with that. She was gone for several minutes.Then wandered around the bar and then started making a drink for another table. Then she went to the table beside us to take their order. As she walked away from that table, we asked if we could order and the attitude really started. However, the hostess was very pleasant.

We sat at a high top in the bar area overlooking the river, great view! The service was adequate, the food amazing! Get the fried green tomato app! The scallop entree was also delicious!
