Good stuff – The peppered shrimp with salad and chicken rice was really great. Very flavorful and the Captain's punch was very good too - not too sweet. One was enough!
Constant attention – We found this because it was near our hotel. Both the food and service were amazing ... constant attention from the waiter without hovering and mouthwatering food. I have paid a whole more for seafood that tasted horrible. This place was a great little surprise and we will definitely be back.
The Shrimp Factory is a casual, friendly "fine dining" restaurant where you can Watch the Ships Go By from almost all of the tables. My personal favorites are the Pine Bark Stew, Deviled Crab with the Curry Chutney Sauce, Pecan Flounder and Stuffed Shrimp. I also LOVE the Caesar Style Salad which has the best Caesar Dressing I have ever tasted. The hot sour dough french bread with the cheddar spread is delicious. I love that I can buy a GLASS of Petite Sirah to enjoy with the salad and bread. There are quite a few really nice wines by the glass in fact. Also, the WHITE CHOCOLATE COCONUT CREAM PIE may be #1 IN THE WORLD! Coffee served tableside in a French Press is perfect. The Banana Foster Flambe, flamed tableside is great for a special occasion. The Shrimp Factory is THE BEST RESTAURANT in Savannah, GA. Their sister restaurant, The Riverhouse Seafood has THE BEST PASTRY CHEF in the city as welll. Try the Riverhouse, after you try The Shrimp Factory!!!!
Again and again – Great food and atmosphere, seafood gumbo the best ever, salad with special caesar dressing exceptional, service was excellent, would go back again and again.
My wife and I were gazing at the beautiful cobblestones on the lovely, historical River Street, when we cam across the Shrimp Factory Restaurant. The business has been there for over 30 years, so we decided to give it a try. The minute we walked in, I smelled something and delicious floating through the air. The hostess told me it was their "famous" bananas foster flambe. I knew we picked a great restaurant. As I glanced at the menu, I came across the "Shrimp Peppered", which I knew was the right choice for me. It sounded spicy, and delicious, my kind of food. My wife had their "Shrimp and Grits", a southern classic. They were both two outstanding choices, and we were so pleased when we got through eating them. We finished our meal with the Bananas Fosters. OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! The whole meal was remarkable, and the service was just as admirable. I will definitely be going back when we travel to Savannah again.
We will be back for more – My boyfriend & I walked around on the river front street a little & decided to try this restaurant after checking out the menu. There was a half hour wait, so we gladly sat at the bar to have a cocktail while waiting for our table. I had probably one of the best Bloody Mary's ever while waiting, fully garnished with a lime, olives & celery. After being seated, our waiter, Evan came over to take our order. Evan was very friendly & had us laughing. I ordered the Grouper Florentine & my boyfriend ordered the Mahi. We both loved our meals, mine was outstanding! We'll be back for more
Best thing all vacation – We were walking down the riverfront when the owner of this restaurant came outside, gave us a $5 off coupon and invited us in. We'd not actually thought of eating there but went in, had one of the most delicious salads of our month long vacation and would return in a heart beat.
We recently enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Shrimp Factory. I ordered the shrimp sandwich/okra gumbo/caesar salad combo, and my husband had the flounder lunch. Everything was cooked to perfection, although I have never liked iceberg lettuce in a caesar salad. The little mini blueberry muffins with honey bourbon butter were a nice touch.
Highlight of our vacation – Six of my friends and I traveled to Savannah last year, the trip and stay was fantastic. But all seven of us agreed that one of the highlights of our vacation was The Shrimp Factory's "Bread Pudding". I've never tasted a desert that great!!! It was so memorable that I don't remember eating anthing else and I'm quite sure that we did. It was so great that prior to departing Savannah we stopped and bought some for the ride home. I recommend anyone traveling to Savannah, make sure to try some. I wish they had a web site so that I could keep a supply on hand.
We were in Savannah for four days and we ate here twice! It felt like an upscale place but without the stuffy dress code. The staff was pleasant and our food was great (especially the Seafood Strudel and the Shrimp & Scallops with Tortellini). The complimentary blueberry muffins made a nice change from the french bread you get at most restaurants, and the Banana Bread Pudding was exquisite! Highly recommended!
