A taste of southern cooking. Friendly but unobtrusive service. Interesting menu for a UK visitor. Good views over the river. Classic restaurant setting. House wine good value and reasonable.

My husband and I had out-of-town guests and we suggested eating at Vic's. It was absolutely the right choice. The service was impeccable--not hovering but attentive in just the right way. Our meals were delicious. The fried calamari was some of the best I've tasted....More
