My brother and I were in Savannah-I had a work related event to attend each morning and we were free in the afternoons for the time we were there. We decided to have dinner at the Shrimp Factory one evening. It is located on River Street and there is a large selection of places to eat. This looked appealing. It... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Sunday evening, our servers name was John and we had a wonderful time. John was prompt, accommodating and so friendly. Our food came out super fast and was delicious! Crab cakes were sensational! Perfect location on River street.

The restaurant is on the river street and is was very busy this night. We did not wait long for a table at all. We enjoyed the crab legs and stuffed mushrooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the shrimp and grits. We would recommend to give the places a try.

This restaurant is located on the famous River Street and is usually quite busy, even on weeknights. Food is fabulous, even if it is a bit pricey. Service was not the greatest. Diners can enjoy seafood selections, but they also have other items.

A wonderful restaurant with mini-muffins instead of bread and the best corn fritters in the south. Located along the river and surrounded by tourists shops. Excellent, friendly service and an intriguing menu.

Located on Bay Street. You can walk or parking in directly across the street. Ordered the Shrimp and Grits and it was BLAH!!! No flavor and no umph. The She-Crab soup was great. Ambiance was ok. Server was great. Drinks were amazing. I probably would only go back for the libations.

We visited the Shrimp Factory this past weekend and really enjoyed it. We sat at the bar and Natasha was our server/bartender. She and her co-worker did a very nice job - attentive, friendly and quick. We ordered the crab & shrimp bisque and shrimp & corn chowder. Both were very good and hit the spot on that cool evening....

This place is on the River Walk and is a really good stop for lunch or dinner. The food and the service were both very good. The fried shrimp and fish were excellent. The cole slaw was average until I added just a little bit of malt vinegar and that made it really, really good. The hush puppies weren't all... More

We had 1 pound of crab legs here for $17.99, we saw it on the sign while on our trolley tour and decided to go back for lunch. Great food and good service.
