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!

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!!!!

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.

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

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.

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!

My wife and I were traveling to Augusta for the Masters Tournament. I told her of this restaurant that I had eaten at in 1989. I wanted to take her there and also to see if anything had changed. We got there around 5:30 pm and were seated right away. Our waiter was excellent. I told him of my previous visit and what I had while there. Well, the Pine Bark Stew was still on the menu and the famous Chatam Artillery Punch as well. My wife had a seafood dish that was out of this world. Yes, some things never change and I look forward to our next visit to the Factory. Thank you for the keeping nostalgia.

We just ate lunch at The Shrimp Factory. The food was excellent as was the service. First we shared the shrimp and crab puffed pastry which was excellent. Homemade muffins and the Caesar Salad, which was tossed in a huge bowl by our table, was brought to us. The muffins were good and the fresh salad was wonderful that included:

Our server was friendly and very helpful from the time we walked into the restaurant. We have never had shrimp scampi cooked in a brown butter sauce! This dinner choice was the best my husband could have made. We would love the recipe. I had the fried shrimp, which were so lightly fried it did not take away from the wonderful flavor of the shimp. We both had dessert, and of course we started with the seafood bisque, which was filled with many different kinds of fish. This is a definite go back place. And right on the river!\r\n

The shrimp was very good as well as the service. The entrees were reasonably priced, better than the $$$$ rating given by Urbanspoon. Check it out if you visit Savannah. It's located on the riverfront.

While on River Street, we stopped for early dinner at Shrimp House because they were featuring pecan crusted flounder at an earlybird price. Well, it was beyond our expectations......absolutely wonderful. Coming from the Texas Gulf Coast, we thought we had the best seafood. However, the pecan crusted founder at Shrimp House was THE BEST! And, their rosemary and sage bread is to die for! This place is a definite must when traveling to Savannah.

I have eaten at the Shrimp Factory twice in the last 20 years and both times it was excellent!! The seafood is very tasty and the deserts are excellent. It is right on the waterfront by all the boats. Try it you won't be sorry.

It's interesting to read the reviews of the Shrimp Factory. ?I thought the food was pretty good. ?It was pricey, but I'm used to paying a little more for good seafood. ?I definitely wouldn't compare this place to Red Lobster, but Red Lobster's in Texas have not ever been up to my standards. We started with the tossed tableside salad, which was tossed at the table. ?Hence the name... ?That was cool, and I thought the salad was good. I ordered the shrimp stuffed savannah, which is eight fantail shrimp filled with deviled crab and baked. ?Served with lemon butter and chicken baked rice. ?The shrimp was good! Their signature cocktail is the Chatham artillery punch. ?Two people at our table ordered it. ?They commented that it was too sweet, but I think they enjoyed it overall. ?(Our waitress gave us cards that have the recipes.) ?Then once again we were all surprised when the waitress brought to go cups so that we could take our booze out on to the streets with us. ?I love Georgia!!

While doing a solo pub crawl down River street, I decided to stop in after seeing their Happy Hour beer specials on a sign outside their door. ?I sat at the bar and was engaged by very nice and friendly bartenders, who even though they were slammed, never let it show it to their guests. ?After sampling something called Artillery Punch, I had to have one for myself. ?Yummy! ?Strong! ?I'll have another please! The food was pretty tasty as well. ?Me and a new friend shared a Seafood Strudel which was a delightful combination of shrimp, crab, spinach and cheese wrapped in a light flaky pastry. ?Mmm mmm good! ?I later had the BBQ shrimp which was probably some of the best BBQ shrimp I'd ever tasted. ?Very flavorful.

While the wait to be seated was very short for a party of 8 and a baby, that was the best it got. we were seated, then told to wait to get our waters. then 2 waiters had a brief discussion right beside the table about who had to wait on us, cause both were busy. we finally got waters and 15 mins later got to order drinks add another 20 mins before we were allowed to order food. salads came in 15 mins and food came about 30 mins after the salads were finished. the meals came out together but one was made wrong and was remade quickly. the food was ok but nothing great, believe it or not the best thing was the kids chicken fingers and fish fingers. finally the table was cleared and were asked if we wanted dessert, this was when we got the most attention from the waiter, guess he thought we would leave with a good impression of our dinner. the menu stated gratuity would be included for parties of 12 and we again had 8, we went back in and asked the tip to be removed at which point we told the manager of our experience and started to walk out, the waiter chased us out the door to say thanks for waisting his time. class act that will not be given a chance to redeem itself.

First of all, instead of bread at the table, you get a cesar salad and mini blueberry muffins. I could eat those all day long! They are THAT good! Salad was awesome too. Our entrees were a mixed bag, part good, part not so good. But I would give the Shrimp Facory a much higher rating were it not for the horrible service! We were left waiting over and over again. The hostess at the front kept saying ""be right with you"" and then disappearing for what seemed like 10 minutes at a time, our waiter was neglectful and we had to flag him down on several occations, and worst yet, the bathrooms were dirty and gross. Usually the care of the bathrooms are a good sign of how restaurants keep things managed as a whole. Overall, the food was good, but the rest of the place seemed in complete disorder.

If you want THE BEST cocktail on River Street go to the Shrimp Factory and order a Chattham County Artillery Punch, and you'll be all set for the night! I highly recommend the pot of stew that comes in a small crock that you eat out of to go along with it! Awesome restaurant!
