Went here for shrimp and grits, waitress took my order and later came back and told me they could would not serve the grits "to runny". Waitress and I assume a manager apologized. Other customers sitting around us heard the conversation and like us couldn't believe a chef in Georgia couldn't cook grits.What was as surprising to me and other... More

We visited Savannah on March 24th for my husbands birthday! We stopped in at The Shrimp Factory for lunch and a Bloody Mary.. absolutely phenomenal! The food and the drinks were top notch and our service from Natasha was impeccable! Great, attentive Bartender! We had a blast! Thank you Shrimp Factory!

A tourist trap, main dishes around $30 and NOT worth it! Could have eaten tastier shrimp at a chain seafood place. Service was slow even though restaurant was half empty.

Great menu with large portions of goodness. Our waitress, Karen L. was pleasant and gave us great service. I had the Pine Bark Stew which was a tasty seafood dish,like a gumbo, and my wife had the Shrimp Stuffed Beefsteak Tomato dish. Both dishes were tasty.

Okay, we're in the middle of Savannah tourist town so what do you expect. Well the shrimp factory delivered fresh oysters, crab cake appetizers and cobb salads. Everything was good, but our server was most hospitable and could she carry a tray. Busy spot, no reservations required.

Visiting on St. Paddy's weekend I am sure they were tired but they should make sure they have enough staff to work all the hours. Our waitress was asleep on her feet. Very slow and we had to ask twice for some things. The food took forever and was cold. Two people in the party ordered crab legs and were... More

Totally recommend the pine bark soup - just keep in mind it's enough for three people to eat. My dad got a shrimp salad sandwich and loved it. The drinks are good, too, and it's all pretty modestly priced with nice ambiance down on the river 👌🏻

I have been to this restaurant a few times. This time, I received less than stellar service - last time I had great service. I was by myself and I really think people treat single diners poorly - maybe because they think if you are tipping on a total bill, it isn't worth the hassle of giving decent service? I... More

We were in Savannah for the night heading home from our travels in Orlando, Florida. After checking in at our hotel and at the recommendation of our hotel we made reservations at 9:45pm at the Shrimp Factory. We headed down to the riverfront, a nice walk before dinner, at almost of the end we came to the restaurant. We arrived... More

We just happened to stumble on the Shrimp Factory on a rainy, cold night in which we wanted to find something close. Boy were we happy. Food was excellent, drinks were very welcome. We had the filet, shrimp and scallops, and all were excellent. Our server was really attentive, and the food was served hot and relatively fast. I would... More
