Awesome food and service!!
Over rated not worth the money. Service is hit and miss
Food is tasty. Biscuits to start. The pear salad was really good. The beef carpaccio was very nice. We had scallops and short ribs that were large servings. Food is comfort style meaning heavy. Enjoyed the bar area that had piano player and a lady singing on Saturday evening.
Food is excellent and portions are enormous. Our waitress was great, checking in appropriate intervals and providing outstanding service. Was very busy and a tad loud but a great choice.
We were there almost an hour before any kind of food arrived. That was after a 20 minute wait just to order our wine. Our waitress was friendly but seemed overwhelmed. There seemed to be minimal bussing service. Our water glasses were never filled nor our wine glasses. They brought the wrong soup to my husband and the wrong dressing on his salad. It was so noisy we could not even enjoy the piano music. I had intended on ordering a dessert but after an 1 1/2 wait for our entree I lost interest. Our hotel had recommended this restaurant but we were very disappointed.
Excellent service! The food was delicious. I would eat there again.
Vic's on the River came highly recommended on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, this was not our experience. We were seated in a very tight corner with a table for 2 (in all fairness we were 2) when the restaurant wasn't busy at all. Another couple had been put at a table for 4 which would have suited us better as well. The service was desultory at best. The food was bland and not hot. A filet mignon ordered medium rare came rare. The chicken liver sliders were not exciting. The tomato bisque was quite delicious but again lukewarm. During our meal, two fellows arrived just behind us with a long ladder and proceeded to change light bulbs in the chandelier. What??? We felt rushed even though the place was quite empty. We were offered neither dessert nor coffee but asked if we would like the bill right away as the last plate was cleared. Again, what??? The restaurant is pretty and the view of the river pleasing. Can't recommend it for anything else though. Try the Olde Pink House for a much better meal in a lovely old southern mansion.
The meal was perfect from great cocktails to amazing fried green tomatoes, to the best short ribs ever! Service impeccable. Sat at a pub table in the paino bar overlooking the river. What a fabulous evening!
This was our first time at Vic's, and we were certainly not disappointed. The food is very well prepared and the service matches the food. The only drawback was the fairly high noise level, but considering we are in our 70's, this would probably not be a problem for younger diners. Overall a great experience.
Took my friend and her husband out to dinner as a thank you for hosting me in their home. Food was great, fresh seafood, salad and delicious bread.
A delightful experience all around.... highly recommended!
We went to Vic's for Sunday dinner. The restaurant is cute and the hostess was helpful. My girlfriend has celiac disease, so gluten literally is dangerous for her. We told the waiter, who made a note in his pad, and ordered an appetizer.
The octopus was good, although the waiter had no idea how explain a dish we've had numerous times in Spain and Portugal.
Then he brought out salads (35 minutes into our meal). There were big ole croutons on both, despite the fact that we had very clearly explained my girlfriend having celiac disease. He had no idea what to say and just apologized. The best option in this situation is to immediately remove a known allergen and then offer to make a new salad. He suggested that I eat them. Insulting, ill-informed, and just wrong.
The entree course, my girlfriend had the scallops, which were well seared and cooked perfectly. The risotto was passable, though under seasoned. I had the special halibut, and it was very over cooked. Dry and hard. The mushrooms were delicious but could not make up for the fish. There were two butterflied and grilled shrimp on my dish which were not grilled or butterflied and one was not even cleaned, huge " vein" still clearly attached to the shrimp and immediately visible.
After showing the server all of the issues he apologized and gave me the full bill (a full two hours into service, no lie I checked text messages to be sure because we were so aggravated)
I would not ever go here again, nor allow my friends to spend their money here. We had two other meals at less pricey restaurants that were far better.
Great crab cakes
Brunch was great. Get there early for a quieter meal.
This restaurant was amazing! Went here for my friends bachelorette party dinner. Great time with friendly waiters.
The food was fabulous and we recommend the restaurant to people we met in Savannah. The server was a bit wanting, but the food was so good that we overlooked the service.
The shrimp and grits are to die for as were the fried green tomatoes. We enjoyed our lunch on the river in such a great historic spot.
Overall the service was lacking a little bit! Our waitress seemed to be distracted and I asked for a special request with my meal and she immediatly said no without checking with the chef and it was not an elaborate request! Probably wouldn’t come back the next time we are in town.
Food was great! Ambiance exemplary
Food was good
This restaurant exceeded my expectations. It was so good that in the our three days in Savannah, we ate there twice. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
Great lemon drop martinis at the bar during Happy Hour. There is a beautiful view from the rear balcony, but unfortunately no seating or tables for sitting your drink. The salads were fresh, crisp hearts of romaine with just the right amount of vinaigrette dressing. We had scallops which were cooked to perfection; crab cakes which were bursting with delicious chunks of crabmeat. One of our group had the pecan crusted flounder, which was the least favorite entree. The crust was “too heavy” and the serving much too large! But the andouille hash with the flounder was fantastic. Overall, a very good meal in a beautiful setting.
Delicious Southern food with a wonderful view! Wonderful, attentive service. Highly recommend.
Great food, service, and location. We had a great time and the views of the river were great. Be sure to check out the hand drawing by Union soldiers on the wall.
Always a great experience!
Food was superb, service was impeccable, view from our window seat was amazing
We happened on Vic’s on an overnight stay in Savannah. It was a night for relaxation and superb dining. We were not disappointed! It was a marvelous dining experience in a stunning setting! Thank you to Matt and all at Vic’s!!!
I had the vegetarian entree which was delicious. My husband had the chicken and our friends had two different fish entrees. They both loved their meals. We tried oysters and shrimp, which was wonderful, too. The biggest problem was that the noise level was so loud that it was difficult to hear across the table. I would recommend they add some sound deadening material to help alleviate the noise.
My friend and I were in Savannah on vacation and had already been to Vic’s once for lunch. We were very pleased, so returned for dinner. Again, a very good meal with a wonderful server. Happy to recommend this place!
Restaurant was very busy. Order taken and appetizers served. Long wait for entre, finally had to ask server about our order. Problem in kitchen. When meal arrived it was under cooked . Server compensated us and did not change us for the food.
Overall a fantastic experience. Food was excellent, service was great and the atmosphere was charming and relaxing. It can get pretty noisy and packed though so just be ready for that, but definitely worth the trip.
I found the hostess staff rude. We ask for a table away from the noisy bar and were seated under the blowing cold air. It was cold outside and have no idea why the air was on. We ask to move and were then seated next to the kitchen door. The service was extremely slow and they were only moderately busy. I found part of one of our orders missing and then was told it was there when it wasn't. The floor manager insisted I was wrong and was very rude. I don't return or recommend places where the help is disrespectful.
We have never been disappointed at Vic's. We like the menu. It's a nice mix of Southern and seafood and it's always really good. Service is professional and attentive. The restaurant is modern and tastefully done in a great old space.
The food is absolutely delicious. I have eaten here 3 times and have not been disappointed! The staff is very friendly and well versed in the specials and how the meals are prepared.
A great three course meal with beer painings...excellent. Great server, beautiful place.
Food was excellent. My steak was cooked perfectly. Service was also very good.
We were only in town one night and Vic’s was the restaurant of choice since we know we would get good food and great service.
Other than the noise level ( due to high, hard ceilings), the experience was very enjoyable. I would recommend getting a view of the riverfront if possible.
