    Arrived early, checked in and told hostess we had reservations at 5. She checked the reservation and our name and told us she would get us from the bar when our table was ready. The bar is in direct site of the bar. She nearly gave our reservation away. Our waiter did not bring our food or did he he come over to see if our meal was ok. My string beans were cold and the crab stuffed flounder had no taste but that was my mistake for ordering that meal. Most white fish relies on the sauce. He came back to ask if we wanted dessert. Service was mediocre. I was disappointed.

    Our first time eating at Vic's was somewhat underwhelming. My husband had shrimp Alfredo. He said the shrimp tasted as if they were freezer burned. I had the fried chicken which came with green beans and mashed potatoes. The chicken and potatoes were good. The green beans were pretty much blanched with little to no flavor. I prefer my green beans to be cooked more. Overall though, I wouldn't say the experience was a negative one. It was one meal and we both agrees that we would return to try a different meal on their dinnerenu as this meal was during their lunch period. The service was great as well as the environment.

    Love this place! I have to make reservations every time I am in Savannah. I had the braised beef prime rib!!!! It was falling apart and melting in my mouth!!! We also tried the calamari and fried green tomatoes!!! Everything is always good. They give you biscuits with honey butter. I was surprised with a mini pecan pie. I do not even like pecan pie but omg!!! It was hot and the crust was glaky and buttery! Just go EAT!!!

    Vic’s was a recommendation from a stranger we met in The Outer Banks. She said if I liked meatloaf, it was a great spot and so it was! Our server was delightful and the ambiance on the final night of our trip was perfect.

    For starters, the onion soup was good, not notable , just what would be expected. The otherwise good fried green tomatoes were ruined by placing them on a bed of grits, turning them into a soggy mess. Oysters Rockefeller were a fine product. The pecan crusted flounder was peppery and crisp but moist inside. It would have been an outstanding dish if it had not been served on top of a watery melange of vegetables including some rather pungent green peppers that clashed with the fine flavors from the fish. Noting that the menu offered fresh-brewed espresso as an ingredient in a cocktail, we ordered plain espresso to finish our meal, but the waitress informed us that the restaurant did not have it. I would probably return here, but I would ask for the beds of grits, vegetables, etc., to be served as sides rather than as beds.

    The atmosphere was very nice, with holiday decor and a pianist. The food was delicious and our server was excellent. We had an 8pm reservation but weren’t seated until 8:30, and we found that the staff at the host/hostess stand weren’t particularly courteous or friendly. Those were the only downsides. Otherwise it was a wonderful dinner experience.

    A wonderful restaurant except for the significant over-use of salt in the food. Everything was way too salty, including rolls/biscuits, soup, entrees, and sides. Suggest the kitchen cut it's salt consumption in half. Let the diners decide how much salt they want.

    Vic’s was by far the best restaurant we tried while in Savannah. I had the pear salad followed by shrimp and grits and my husband had the fried shrimp. Both were amazing. We shared the peach trio for dessert, and it was a perfect ending to a delicious meal. With the exceptional service and inviting atmosphere, we plan to return on future visits.

My husband says the Fried Chicken is the best he’s ever had, I had the Beef Short Ribs this time and they were delicious. Our server, Ashley provided excellent service and was an absolute delight. Will look forward to our next visit.

    Food was good. Loved our appetizer and soup and entrees ranged from good to great. Service was...not good. Took 70 minutes for our entrees to arrive, and nobody bussed our table during the meal at all. We ate the entire meal...90 minutes total given how slow it was...with empty appetizer plates and an empty bread basked on the (very small) table. For $50 a person you expect a little better.

    I was blown away by the customer service and food that I received - EXCELLENT! I never write reviews, but I had to for this place. I’m gluten & dairy free and I have a shrimp allergy, so there’s always a lot of questions and substitutions that come with my meal, unfortunately. Our waitress did not skip a beat and was incredibly informed and SO helpful with my allergies. The manager even came out and verified that he talked to the cook about my shrimp allergy. This rarely happens at restaurants, so I’m always so thankful for the added layer of assurance. When the food came out, the cook had made a special dairy free sauce for my salmon dish that was delectable! It was seriously the best salmon dish I have ever had, and I order salmon quite frequently. The other two people at my table, with no allergies, agreed that the food was exceptional! Vic’s on the River is an absolute 10/10 in my book and I look forward to come back next time I’m in Savannah!

    Some of the best She Crab Soup we’ve ever had. The Crab Cake was sublime. The Fried Green Tomato was good but the coating was a bit thicker than I like it. Our entrees Shrimp & Grits and Seared Scallops were both exceptional. I also appreciated that I could get a glass of house wine for $7. Most places charge over $10 for a glass of wine that came out of a $10 bottle. Our server was lovely but I apologize because I don’t recall her name. We will be back.

    Our server was delightful. I like the view of the river, and the VERY historic Civil War map carved into one wall. The crab cakes are extraordinary, but small and at $16 per cake, expensive. Not blaming the restaurant, just sayin’. The She Crab soup did not come with an offering of sherry, as is traditional.

    This was a date night for my wife and I. We intentionally delayed ordering between apps, first course and entree because we hate when we feel rushed and courses come on top of each other. We got the vibe early into our evening that this place moves to turn tables as we kept of getting “are you ready?” About 5 mins after ordering our salad we ordered entrees. The salad was delivered and within a minute after 1-2 bites of salad the entrees arrived. I looked at the runner and said “but our salads just got here” to which he looked confused and proceeded to set our entrees down and walk away. On top of their need to rush, they forgot to provide my wife’s vegetable (asparagus) with her meal. The server actually seemed sincere about trying to help and contacted the manager (we saw the 2 talk) and the manager never walked over to our table to address, or even apologize for, the issue. The food is good but don’t go here if you want a relaxing dinner. Their goal is to treat you like a tourist and flip as many tables in a night as they can, even in November when the restaurant was at half capacity.
