    Save your time and money, food is terrible and bland. If that's not enough the server was easily the most disrespectful and worst person ever. He was rude, threw drinks down, tossed food, dropped the wrong food at the table three times, i ended up just throwing cash down and walking out and not finishing my meal. Maybe it was us, but no i heard how he talked to other tables and if i wasn't with my infant son i would have confronted him.

    We ate and the Cotton Exchange, the Shrimp Factory and the Vic on the River. Al. Three of said that Cotton Exchange was the best, hands down. Then Vic’s and a distant third for Shrimp Factory. Good but not in the league of the other two.

    Three of us and we all enjoyed our meals, two ordered the shrimp tacos and were very happy with the size, quality and flavor. I ordered the low country bowl.and was pleased with my meal. Size was perfect, I actually couldn’t eat all the shrimp! Nice blend of potatoes and sausage and corn was cooked just right. Definitely a good choice for our group.

    We arrive early. Tried to get a seat at the bar. No luck. The bar was very small. After a bit we snagged 2 seats at the bar. The two bartenders were working hard in such a small place and w all the crowds of people coming in for to go drinks. Our reservation was 715. The hostess seemed confused but we did get seated. Ordered drinks and apps. The apps came out, but we had no way to eat them. Had to ask the rushing server for utensils and plates. By the time she came back, the food was cold. We then ordered the mains. They were fine. Just ok. The bathroom stall was out of order so only one operational. That caused a line. No TP. I would have hated if we sat by the bathroom as you could hear the flush and the hand dryer as the entrance door was held opened by the people waiting.

    Service and food were good. Ray was our server, she was great! They only have one bathroom stall for women and the people from the bus tours also use the same bathroom so that gets backed up. Other than that, great dining experience with friends from out of town!

    The food at the shrimp factory was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was a little spotty but it was clear our server was stretched thin. Took a while to get out food But there was plenty of it and it was tasty. A good value for being right there on the river!

    I am a savannah Native and I have always known the shrimp factory to be a quality location to eat. As a older man now, I must say the shrimp factory is not a great experience, the food is scarce and cheap. Food has 0 flavor, and not pleasing for a river street meal. Throw the whole kitchen away and start over.

    The food we ordered was very good, however the prices for the appetizers are outrageous. We were charged $9.00 for 4 hushpuppies. Most restaurants in the area provide these for free or a small price and you get a whole basket full. Out waitress could not seem to focus and forgot our order or got our order wrong multiple times. She would disappear for long periods of time so much so that my husband had to get up several times to have the bar refill our sodas and get my son a bottle of ketchup for his meal. This was some of the worst service we've gotten in the area, which was a shame since the food was excellent.

May be off season low crowd, but was perfect for us. Mandy our server was excellent in all aspects. Highly recommended restaurant, and highly recommend the Pine Mark Stew!

    The food was not good. The salt level in all the food was 10+. The crab cakes were terrible. I’m from MD the land of crab cakes so I was truly disappointed. The broccoli was mushy. I didn’t finish the meal. It was sad because I was celebrating a big event and looked forward to eating some good seafood. The service was excellent. However, I will not be back nor will I recommend this restaurant.

    My family of 3 had an amazing experience at The Shrimp Factory on the evening of New Year’s Eve. For an appetizer we had the fried green tomatoes and the hush puppies with pimento cheese and candied ham. Both were delicious but we all favorited the hush puppies of the two. For dinner we shared the fried seafood platter and the shrimp factory steamed platter. Both were amazing and enjoyed by the 3 of us. The fried oysters were perfect, as well as, the steamed shrimp and crab legs. The whole meal was fantastic, even the fries and coleslaw. There was so much food in these two meals that the three of us (hefty eaters) could not finish the entire meals. Service was also exceptional on a busy evening. Our waitress was attentive, helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend eating at The Shrimp Factory, we can’t wait to come back!
