food was outstanding as was service. Our table was great we had a view of the river BUT we also had other diners walking to our table to go outside on a veranda which was a bit annoying.

Great food, service and view. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits, scallops with risotto, she crab soup and crawfish beignets. Oh and the Savannah Peach Cocktail. The restaurant can be a little loud, but is otherwise perfect. We will be back!

I had the fried green tomatoes, she crab soup, and shrimp and grits. All were fantastic! The flavors were wonderful. I also sampled my friends calamari, magnificent sauce! Be sure to dig to the bottom of the dish for it. I ate the shrimp and grits the next day and they tasted even better than the day before. The service and atmosphere were wonderful. I had a reservation and highly recommend that you book a table in advance! It will be worth the wait, but why do that?

Made a reservation for Father’s Day and we loved it with excellent food and service, ambience, with view of the river. The waiter told us that we can go out on balcony and take pictures and we did that. Amazing view of the river! Highly recommended!

Best meal I’ve had in years, and gave my compliments to the chef! Chilean Seabass - it was just fantastic.

Very attentive but not intrusive waiter, and lovely restaurant setting. A very enjoyable experience for “fancy date night.”

Waitress was amazing. Steak was over cooked and tough. The biscuits were tough and reminded us of gas station microwaved biscuits. She crab soup was amazing and the sea bass was amazing. Food and drinks were overpriced for the quality received.
Left disappointed.

We went for our anniversary. From the time we arrive until the time we left service was top notch. Our waitress was very energetic and on top of things. The food was great as well. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice as . The hostess and waitress acknowledged it was our anniversary and the waitress even brought out a dessert after our meal to celebrate our special occasion. Highly recommend and will return.

Took the elevator to the 4th floor for our 9pm reservation reading the sign saying the elevator would close at 10. We were greeted right away and taken through a maze of tables. White linens and oil candles are a sweet touch. The water was cold and clean with no weird aftertaste like some have. The large party next to us were very loud and the waiter had to yell over them but he got the job done. The room felt warmer than was comfortable and I had to blow out the candle. The smell was overwhelming. We ordered the Rum punch and Vics margarita. Both very good and a bit spicy. The fried Calamari was tasty but would have been better if the sauce was on the side instead of underneath in the bowl. My husband had the special, 18oz prime rib and it was Perfect. I had the fried shrimp . It was a very large portion, battered lightly with not too much crunch. The shoestring fries were seasoned very well. Im not usually a fan of coleslaw but it was very good. Not too sweet and the prefect mix of not too dry and not mushy. We did not have room for desert although the table next to us ordered probably one of everything and it all looked amazing. The price was to be expected and the waiter was very attentive and had good energy. After overhearing the large party complaining about the 18% gratuity we happily gave him the tip he deserved for a service well done. We had to ask how to get the stairs side exit of the building but we're quickly shown the way.

The food is always fantastic. Someone had the idea to combine tambourine and piano in an effort to totally ruin the experience. Luckily our great waitress and food didn’t allow that to happen. In my experience the music at a restaurant is as good as food at a concert. Which is to say; it’s horrid. Once again my theory was proven correct but happy to say the food more than made up for it all.

Food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. Our waiter Andreas was the best. Friendly and attentive. We were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary and the staff really made our evening feel special. We will definitely return whenever we’re in Savanna.
We highly recommended Vics on the River.

It was an anniversary dinner and we had requested to sit outside. A crazy night, lots of folks requesting patio, but the staff made sure that we didn’t have to wait too long and then we had a lovely table outside. We were able to have a quiet dinner in the breeze by the old trees and they gave us a dessert and every congratulation. Thank you!

Our anniversary diner at Vic’s on the River was delightful, and exceeded our expectations. From our first sips of Brut Rose champagne, to well crafted dishes featuring crab and scollops accompanied by a nice sancerre, we couldn’t be happier celebrating 55 yrs together. When our server invited us on the balcony for a few pics, everyone there celebrating an anniversary got into the occasion. The great food and wine brought a bunch of great couples together to share their special day with each other in a unique culinary experience on the River. Only in Savannah at Vic’s.

Vics on the River is a MUST when in Savannah!
This was recommended to us by our Resort as a great anniversary dinner spot and it WAS! Made a reservation through Open Table about 3-4 weeks prior to our visit, in the notes section I included that it was our 20th-anniversary dinner.
Upon checking in we were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" and given a great little table with a beautiful view of the river, so sweet. At the end of our meal we were given a little dessert with a candle to celebrate.
This was our first dinner spot in Savannah and the food bar was set VERY HIGH, I meal was A-MAZ-ING!
Upon checking in we maybe waited 5 or so minutes for our table, our server was very attentive and our wait time for our meal was good as well. The atmosphere is nice and this restaurant is ROCKING IT with its attention to detail and customer service.
Thank you Vics for a WONDERFUL dining experience, we HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this place!
(but DO make a reservation....and I even had to call to back our reservation up a bit...we didn't allow quite enough time to take the ferry over and they were so accommodating, were like sure, we'll see you soon!)
