    Always a pleasure to dine at Vic’s and this was no exception. Delicious she-crab soup, wonderful halibut special and outstanding fried oysters. Drunken Pecan bourbon cocktail and pecan pie provided a great start and finish.

    Overall the experience was great! The food was gorgeous but, the flavor was not there for me. I had ordered the 9oz steak that came with potatoes and asparagus. The sides “delicious “ the meat had zero flavor! I think they depended on the sauce to do it but it did not. The waitress was great and on top of it. Drinks delicious! Overall I would come back but maybe taste something different. For the price it would be more worth it if things got SEASONED better!

    We made reservations prior to visiting and upon arrival we’re text our table was ready. Immediately sat down at a table overlooking the river. Our server, Chris was as kind and knowledgeable as you’d want any server to be. In fact, he was awesome! He made suggestions on everything from wine to dessert. Chris is a fantastic person who enjoys his job and you can see he really enjoys interacting with his guests as well. Now on to the food. Each dish order; spicy shrimp appetizer, pear salads, and our flounder and crab cakes were fantastic! Delicious!! We will absolutely be back to see Chris and know we will have another great experience! Five stars to Vic’s on the River!

    This is the sister restaurant to Vic’s River Grill (VRG) which is a couple doors down. Bypass Vic’s On The River and proceed directly to VRG. Better menu, ambiance, service (personal and professional), and value. Many of the items on the menu are the same but enjoyed VRG much more.

    Meh- not impressive. Oysters came out completely frozen- manager did apologize and comp’d another dozen which was appreciated. Fried green tomatoes were good… nothing spectacular. Entrees of halibut and scallops were good but nothing spectacular… risotto with the scallops was lukewarm. Ambience was not great- very loud and tables were crammed close together. Will not return. Lots of much better restaurants in Savannah for the money.

    Assez déçus . On avait demandé une table près des fenêtres et certaines étaient disponible mais ils nous ont mis dans un coin !! La serveuse amicale et parfaite et les plats choisis en entrée soupe à l’oignon et les fameux beignets de tomates vertes délicieux . En revanche le crab cake sans intérêt servi avec du riz qui était froid . Rapport qualité/ prix convenable . Difficile de comprendre l’engouement pour ce restaurant . On en trouve de bien meilleur à Savanah.

    Made a reservation weeks in advance. Crab cake appetizer very good, crawfish beignets yummy , like little fish empanadas. Atlantic Shellfish Mélange was worth the price: large lobster tail, 2 jumbo dive scallops and 4 large shrimp with a delicately flavored flat noodle pasta which allowed each shellfish to shine on its own. Pecan pie with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce was lovely, chocolate mousse was also fabulous James our server was very efficient and knowledgable.

    The BEST FRIED GREEN TOMATOES I have ever tasted. The pairing of the goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, and chutney, were outstanding. The pecan crusted flounder was perfectly cooked. We saw two massive barges being accompanied by tugboats and that added to the ambiance. I have eaten in numerous restaurants on different continents and this was both superior and unusually reasonable.

    I chose the restaurant for a corporate casual business meeting my reservation was a 8pm how ever they were ever to give us a table sooner than that. Now there’s a manager I think her name is Rose. She is Hispanic that made my experience and crew in general feel uncomfortable her first question was are you all going to consume or just hold my table because I mentioned her we still had one more lady on the way. We book for 4. Server was grate pack led my leftovers manager not so much.

    Ordered the signature Manhattan $18 and it was nearly undrinkable poorly made. French Onion Soup tasted like they poured beef broth and melted cheese over it from a microwave with zero onions. Meatloaf entree was actually surprisingly decent. Place was packed and we felt like we were in a cafeteria. Very loud. Disappointing to say the least. Maybe we caught them on a bad and busy Wednesday evening.
