The place is a gem! The views are breathtaking, unbelievable sunsets, live music, the artists had an angel voice and sang all classics (Whitney Houston, Bruno Mars, smooth operator etc.) Food is ok, mainly pizza, nachos etc, nothing too elaborated but the experience the drinks etc that is the take away. The only downside is that open table lets you reserve for dinner but when you arrive there is a sign that it is first come first serve (they only reserve to have lunch or a drink until 3 pm). That is a glitch the bar and open table need to resolve since it can ruin your plans. We were lucky someone stood up and we could grab the table so that is why I have an overall possitive experience and review.

Many locals recommended Vic’s. So glad they shared this jewel with us. We consider ourselves “foodies”, and this restaurant did not disappoint. Service was good, but the food and the prices were remarkable. Scallops and lobster were perfectly cooked. We can also attest to the outstanding shrimp and grits- one of our favorite dishes. Fine dining for sure without the hefty price. The historic building is beautiful. A great experience all around.

Nick was an amazing server! Very accommodating of allergies, very attentive in filling waters and drinks, gave good recommendations for food. Prices were a little elevated especially drink at $18 but good experience nonetheless!

Walked in and was told there was only outdoor seating available by a rather unfriendly hostess. Asked how long the wait would be as we didn’t mind waiting since it was hot out. Was told I don’t know there’s a lot of reservations the next hour so I can’t tell you. Ok perfect, I went and made a reservation and there was inside seating available for a reservation for 15 minutes from when I walked in which I thought was odd since I just was told they couldn’t give me a time but ok cool. I booked it. Walked back in 15 minutes later and told the same hostess I was there and now had a reservation for inside seating, she was obviously annoyed I had figured out a way to get past her system but there was literally no one waiting in front of me. She caught an attitude and still made me wait another 10 minutes for the other imaginary reservations that never came that she seemed to think were of more value than mine because I annoyed her. I was eventually seated because when you have 3 open tables and no people walking in it’s kind of hard to justify making me stand there. From then on service was great and the food was good. As long as you don’t get the miserable hostess who hates her job I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time here. If you see the gal with the tattoos and septum piercing at the host stand be prepared to deal with crankiness before you’re seated unless you have a pre booked reservation and there’s no one in the general vicinity who looks like they may want a table.

Beautiful rooftop garden! It’s a bit on the sunny side with several umbrellas that don’t do much for coverage during midday, however the staff was very accommodating when able. The food was outstanding, I highly recommended the inclusive brunch!

I would recommend booking ahead with open table. The party ahead of us when checking in had a 35-minute wait as a party of two. We were seated on time, and the hostess was friendly. Our waitress was very attentive, and she took our order quickly. The appetizers and entrees came out nice and hot, and I have zero complaints about the order. Everything was tasty and fresh. Appetizers: Lobster Bisque, Fried Calamari Entrees: Catfish Creole, Lobster Ravioli
