    Major issue for us was arriving 10 minutes before reservation, yet had to wait till after reservation time to be seated, while entire restaurant was empty. 20 people to 30 people waiting to sit is a cluster. It didn't need to be that way, staff could have sat us all down and simply advised service would start shortly. Instead everything became hectic and disorganized.

    The service was excellent and our meal was too. We had the crawfish beignets which were so delicious. The biscuits were warm and tasty. And my Tile fish with crab was excellent! I was pleasantly surprised by the meal and would go back. There is a good view of the river as well.

    Went to Vic’s on the River for lunch on Saturday, April 13th because of the good reviews Staff was unwelcoming and unbothered to help We were offered tiny table on the pathway of the stiff and guests and we asked to move us since restaurant was barely filled with people due to early time - 11.30 am We given attitude and passive aggression Asked to medium well steak and it was as hard to chew as rubber Asparagus was burned Potato wedges were barely warm inside and mushy on the outside Salad felt like it was made yesterday Leaves soft and had no life in them Scallops had weird taste Biscuits felt like store bought Walmart style We didn’t receive any service except for our plates be put in front of us Overall would not recommend Save your money and go somewhere else

    Our service was amazing and the food delicious. The only thing that was a little annoying was the tables were super close together and the conversation was loud. Table for two was small in size and had to much stuff on it and we were constantly trying to fit plates. Again not a big deal as the food and service was amazing!!

We were celebrating an anniversary and were gifted a piece of scrumptious chocolate torte. I would definitely return for another meal.

    Excellent dining experience. Nice, but not overly fancy. We had a lovely view of the river and our meal was the perfectly prepared classic southern dishes we were hoping for. There is a coffee shop (that also serves alcoholic drinks) on the first floor of the building, which was an added perk to keep the rest of our evening going.

    Vic’s bills itself as “high-end” but it is not. The restaurant was overly packed, our server was rushed and inattentive, and the food was unappealing in both looks and taste. The shrimp and grits were just awful. Pictures on their website have obviously been taken by a professional food photographer and do not represent in any way what comes out on your plate. Quite a tourist trap.

    Unfortunately I am disappointed in Vic’s - please note that if a reservation is booked and requested for sitting outside it is not honored. You must arrive and wait again on an additional wait list- very disappointing and pointless for making a reservation. The special was good but not as good as the traditional menu items especially for the price point. Overall Vic’s is a great dining experience however it will be a while before I go back or recommend to anyone.

    Another very good lunch at Vic’s. The she crab soup was as amazing as ever. Wife got the short rib sandwich that she thoroughly enjoyed. I got the fish tacos. Unfortunately they were a little bit bland and unsatisfying. Service was excellent overall we had a great time.

    It was fine. Food was good, but nothing note worthy. Service was good, but we felt very rushed. Our entrees arrived before we even had a chance to finish our salads. We were not given the opportunity to just sit and enjoy … out in under an hour maybe even 45 mins.

    Beverly is wonderful. Food was very good, the seafood mélange was just enough without being too filling, however if you’re going hungry, you’ll leave hungry if this is all you order. Desserts were ok. Cocktails were very good. Shrimp and grits were ok// they use sweet spicy bbq in theirs. GM was asking everyone if they were enjoying their meal, which was a nice touch.

    When I made this reservation weeks ago for my Wedding Anniversary I had requested a window table. When we arrived for our dinner they did not offer us a window table but instead sat us really close to another couple and we had no privacy at all. I realize that they cannot guarantee a window table but I also noticed that there were sufficient window tables available. Additionally, when our food came out my crab cakes were at best luke warm. I didn’t want to send them back since we waited too long too begin with. However, I did tell my waiter that the food was not hot. He said that happens sometimes and will inform the kitchen. When the bill arrived I expected a discount since I complained but I was charged the full amount. Needless to say I was left with a less than happy experience.
