She-crab soup was amazing. Actually ate here twice during my visit to Savannah. Everything me or my companions ordered was excellent. Atmosphere, service, and ambiance were great. If I return to Savannah this will be a for-sure stop.

Very good, but try to find it. Our reservation was during the Christmas festival parade, so the street was blocked off, and you couldn’t get near it. After being in bumper to bumper traffic for nearly an hour, the GPS sent us to Vic’s coffee shop on the river. Then trying to find the valet was another adventure.
Once there, an hour late, the special halibut they had was sold out. They substituted sword fish, which was a huge piece, and was excellent.

Loved the live music and charm. The table in the corner wasn’t the best seat in the house. Why would an upscale restaurant in a historic part of Savannah put the wine and cocktail list on an iPad that kept locking?

I don't know why I haven't come to Vic's before, as much as I come to Savannah! But going forward, I will be coming, at minimum for appetizers and drinks! The food was so good, the drinks and the ambiance was even better! Vic's is definitely a must while in Savannah!

the experience would have been a home run, except the food arrived almost cold and had to be sent back to the kitchen. my fish was hot, but potatoes and veggies were barely warm. It was as if the sides had been prepped ahead of time and waited quite some time before the meat was prepared.

Sunday Brunch before seeing a matinee at Historic Savannah Theater. Outstanding service and window seating. 2 had brunch and 2 of our party ordered from lunch menu. Brunch items included many of the best dishes including smoked cheddar grits, Mac and cheese and fried chicken. Omelette station and selections was incredible and carving station included a fabulous brisket. Excellent bloody Mary’s and coffee. Menu selections were also outstanding especially the fried green tomatoes. Not at all rushed, able to linger and enjoy over coffee and dessert. Highly recommended.

Outstanding food and service. Fine dining at reasonable prices. Enjoyed the beef carpaccio for appetizer, which was plenty for 2 people. The entrees of jumbo scallops and braised short ribs were both really superb.

Excellent pricing for lunch. Go early if you want to beat the crowd/noise. Portion size good but not amazing. Lots of southern classics. Partial view of river possible.

Loved our date night dinner here! It was pretty loud and tables close together, but luckily the crowd died down right after we sat down. May not have enjoyed it as much with the full crowd as I could barely hear my husband sitting across from me at first. But, other than that, the food and service were incredible. I had the kale salad - don’t underestimate this simple salad! - and the seafood melange which was incredible. Waiter suggested doing it over spinach instead of pasta and that was a great choice. Also tried she crab soup and wow - not to be missed! I have some food sensitivities and they were more than willing to accommodate- our server even oversaw the preparation to make sure everything was right.

We had reservations for three. We arrived fifteen minutes early and then waited thirty minutes. After being seated the server arrived and we placed a drink order and told him we would like to relax with our drinks for a few minutes before ordering. He did not want to do this and asked that we place out orders with the drinks and he would wait before placing the order. We did not particularly want to do this, but apparently it was the only way we would be fed. He came back constantly to see if we were ready and we finally placed the order to be rid of him. When the food arrived he hovered constantly and removed the plates almost before we were through. The food was adequate, but not sensational. My fish was undercooked. After clearing the table he brought the check without offering desert and appeared offended when I requested coffee and the others wanted tea. A very unsatisfactory meal. I have never been so rushed to eat in my life. I tipped accordingly. I would rather fish in the river and cook my catch on the shore than eat here again!

Every visit to Savanna, for us, must include at least one dinner at Vick’s. On this visit we had the bbq meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. We usually start with their great fried green tomatoes but we knew the meatloaf would be plenty; it’s big. We finished by sharing the delicious pumpkin cheesecake.

The cocktails were superb, our waiter Daniel excellent, the she crab soup...outstanding. But the special being Halibut and mashed potatoes were not the good at all! I would have asked for a refund but let it go as the rest of the meal experience was quite good. Any refund??? Look up Stevens on 11/24...6:15 pm reservation.

Nice food and cocktails; sloppy service. Silverware was removed and not replaced unless we asked. Server delivered one wrong entree and told us he ordered the wrong thing. No apology, just removed the wrong entree and left one correct entree, without any way to eat it. Eventually delivered the other correct entree, after the other entree had cooled.
