    The only positive about our most recent visit here was the quick service. The first mistake came when my salad was wrong, but it was quickly corrected and accepted that mistakes happen. Then, when my filet arrived it was nearly raw and the side ordered was not correct. After requesting a correction, what returned was an inedible piece of charbroiled steak. It was literally burnt black on the outside and tasted just like a piece of charcoal. Little apology was made as I sent it back and just told them to remove from our bill. I left there never having a full meal and very disappointed. We frequent Savannah for business trips, but it will be a while before we give Vic’s another try.

    We were disappointed in Vic’s. Our main dishes, the seafood Melange and a steak filet were so salty they were almost inedible. Our bill came to $150 for two. Our waiter was scruffy and appeared to lack basic hygiene.

    The service was great and the food was excellent. I do highly recommend. Our only regret was booking through open table. We dined very early at 3pm because Open Table showed nothing else available and when we arrived there was plenty of seating and still seating when we left. It would have been nice to dine at 5 or after and to see we could have had we not booked here was a big disappointment.

    We were a little afraid a riverfront restaurant would be touristy and disappointing but the food was fabulous! Our octopus appetizer and steak were delicious but the star was the pecan crusted flounder was the star! Service was also top notch but definitely a louder place and a little hard to hear conversations but worth it!

    Booked about 3 weeks in advance, asked for a good table, and if possible an earlier time. Phoned repeatedly over the next 2 weeks to see if anything was available earlier. Nothing. When we arrived there were many vacant tables. We were seated at the worst table: in a small corner next to a doorway with the retracted door beside our table and another behind my wife. The room was excessively loud. Very disappointing. Our server was great.

    We were in town for a sports event and managed to secure a last minute 5pm reservation via OT and we’re so glad we did! They would not have allowed a walk-in, despite us being able to get a resy 15 minutes earlier, because I saw them turn several people away who tried. We were seated promptly at 5 (no earlier) and immediately offered drinks and warm biscuits. We were in a hurry and told our server who said she would be sure we were accommodated. Our food came very quickly and it was fabulous. The fried shrimp were huge and flavorful with a light crispy coating cooked to perfection. The mac and cheese was some of the best we’ve ever tried. I had a salad and the french onion soup and both were delicious. We were in and out in 30 minutes, which was helpful for us, but we both agreed we would go back to linger and enjoy the pleasant setting, the fun drinks we saw other people having, and the delicious, reasonably priced food!

    We arrived early for a 2 pm reservation and they accommodated us. I had the lunch swordfish special and it was Uber excellent!! My spouse had the shrimp and grits which were good but not great. The shrimp in both dishes were over cooked. The crawfish beignets were OK but underfilled with crawfish mostly pastry. Still a very yes good lunch experience

    We love Vic’s, our server was Cheryl Lyn, so warm and friendly, we also love the manager Randall, such a nice guy. They are pet friendly and we’re very welcoming if my fur baby. Randall also is a dog lover and showed us his fur babies. The food was amazing, large portions and so delicious. The piano is soft in the background as you dine, which makes for a nice atmosphere, ot was a perfect night. If you’re visiting Savannah, you have to make a reservation… Will not disappoint The Fiore’s New York

    The food has always been quite good here, the service is fine. I will also note the noise level in the main room nearest the hostess stand is/was extremely noisy. Although this has been a favorite restaurant when in Savannah, I may put others in the rotation.
