Disappointed. We are experienced diners; high end to rustic. Friendly but terrible service. No bread service, salads, waited 20 minutes to order then 20 to get an ice by jet after asking. Then 20 for dessert then 20 for check. You get the picture. Should have gone to Husk or Grey::)) would like our money back! And it was our anniversary!

Amazing visit. The Calamari was delicious. My husband had the fried shrimp with tempura onion rings. He said it was great! I had the Pecan Crusted Fried Flounder and it was amazing! We finished with the peach trio-peach bread pudding, peach ice cream, peach cheese cake-so yummy! Service was great and ambiance was nice. Definitely a must if in Savannah!

Very nice restaurant with great food. I was surprised since it's in such a touristy area just how good the food was. Great view our of the windows of the river. One of the best meals in Savannah we had.

Everything from the food to the staff was just okay. There was nothing special or memorable about our evening. Probably wouldn’t go back and don’t recommend to others.

We’ve driven hours just to eat here more than 4 times, and this time was horrible. We brought our out of state friends, because we had hyped it up so much. The waitress came 3 times in the 2 hours we had to wait. She didn’t care about us and stuck us in the corner. They weren’t busy and it wasn’t lunch time, so it was mostly the staff. I’ve served over 10 years and it was horrible service. We more than likely won’t be driving hours just to come eat here again.

Shout out to the food runners and young men/women taking the food to the tables. You all work hard. Food was amazing, atmosphere was great, service was excellent. Great location. Short ribs were delicious, filet was cooked perfectly. Total experience was top notch.

The menu is comprehensive, something for everyone. Friends raved about the fried chicken. Fluffy biscuits were to die for!! Servings were extremely generous and prices fair. Location is close to everything on the waterfront. Clearly our most favorite restaurant of the three days of our trip.

The food was superb! Our waitress, Hannah M, was great with recommendations that exceeded our expectations. We tried the fried green tomatoes, the poached pear salad, the salmon and short ribs. A must try when in Savannah!

We arrived early for our reservation so had time for a drink before lunch. Our server for lunch was excellent by suggesting dishes and helping us choose. Crab cakes for one of us and daily fish special for me. Plus cheese grits! We also split the grilled veggie salad. Highly recommend this place!

The service was impeccable thanks to Brent C! My husband had the special pan seared grouper which he loved. Not being a seafood fan I ordered a filet mignon which was not the desired temp. which Brent C. actually noticed and handled it without a beat.

We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and Brent C helped make it special.

Waitress was more interested in party next to us with whom she knew. We were never asked if we wanted desert or coffee and just give check after she took our plates. My husband and I were quite surprised. Food was delicious

I made reservations so I was not expecting to be seated in the bar. The customers at the bar were very loud. The piano and singer might have been a nice touch, if enjoyed from another room. Between the intoxicated customers at the bar and the music, it was much too loud. Again, having made a reservation weeks ahead of time, this isn’t what I was expecting. Food was good and service was good.

We have dined at Vics once before and decided to return for our wedding anniversary. Everything was very good and our experience with food and service was above average. Just one negative remark, the she crab soup which Vic’s is famous for was over salted. Not a deal breaker but I feel an establishment like Vic’s would want to know. We will be back.

I ordered the barbecue meatloaf and macaroni and cheese. My food was good. My wife ordered the fried chicken entree and her food meat was raw/undercooked and flavorless. The biscuits were over cooked and dry. Our waitress was wonderful and manager was sympathetic.

We were very excited to get into town and try this place considering the reviews. We started with the Oysters Rockefeller, extremely small oysters, only 5 of them, and it was pretty much 14 dollars of just spinach and cheese. The crab soup was great, French onion not so much. For an entree we had the prime rib with a lobster tail, the best part of the whole dish was the veggies and lobster. We gave it a shot but definitely won’t be back.

One of the problems in visiting Savannah is deciding where to eat. There are so many world class restaurants and great foods, the choice occasionally comes down to where you can get a reservation. Fortunately, we knew this to be an issue and booked reservations several weeks in advance of our visit. Vic's on the River was on our short list and did not disappoint. The service was outstanding, menu selections were wide and varied and the food was prepared to absolute perfection. The only disappointment was that the chef would not divulge his recipe for the world class she-crab soup. Our top choice of many fabulous restaurants in Savannah

Vic’s is always the best in every way. Ambiance,
food and service. Our wait person was not as friendly as the others. She needs to smile.
