Description: The entire family is sure to enjoy Savannah's most intriguing & historic restaurant. At the Pirates' House, our most precious treasure is the food. Situated in Trustees Garden, merely a scant block from the Savannah River, the Famous Pirates' House is the most historic spot in Georgia. The Herb House, erected in 1734, located inside the Pirates' House, is said to be the oldest house in Georgia. The Pirates' House first opened in 1753 as an inn for seafarers and fast became a meeting point for blood-thirsty pirates & sailors. Enthusiastically recommended by AAA, Food & Wine and Redbook.

I really liked this restaurant...food is typical Southern with fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, shrimp,etc and good cocktails. The fried chicken dish was very big and could have been shared between two people if we had known. I thought it was good but my daughter didn't like it because it had a sweet sauce on top. I think it would... More

We jumped off our trolley tour late on a Sunday afternoon right by the old Pirates' House. The lovely old building, delightful restaurant, and charming gift shop were all a joy to savor. It was a short stroll through the park back to our hotel from here. Absolutely entertaining!

Great lunch buffet. The mac and cheese was delish, probably one of the best I have had! The lunch buffet was far better than Lady and Sons dinner buffet. Fun atmosphere.

We had an early dinner at the Pirate's House during the off season so we were seated very quickly and our food arrived fast as well. We had chicken sandwiches and they were very good, very large grilled chicken breasts. The prices were reasonable for a tourist area and we would be happy to return there for another meal.

Been here multiple times and pecan chicken is not to be missed. Fun atmosphere and great food. However, the wait is far too long! Always made prior reservations and even with them you still end up waiting well past your reservation time. Other then the wait. It's worth it.

We have passed by the Pirates House on previous trips because we thought it would be touristy but it really was not. The food was very good. The waiters knew tons of history about the place. It is one of the oldest buildings in Savannah and hosted both dignitaries and sailors. You can see much of the inn while eating.

I'll say this before I continue: We may have just been there on an extremely slow day, and it was a wrong place/wrong time deal. Alright, here we go. So, my family and I were visiting Savannah, GA for Fall Break, and after visiting Bonaventure Cemetery on our third day there, we stopped by the Pirate's House. Now remember, all... More

We have been here twice as a family. Both times, we have enjoyed the food as well as the atmosphere. We would recommend The Pirates House to everyone. We did find out that you can order the chicken tenders and French fries from the kids menu, which is an adult serving, but it's not on the regular menu.

We took the trolley tour of Savannah and enjoyed that a lot. (We're tourists after all!) The tour guide mentioned The Pirates' House has good food so we decided to try it. It really did seem to have authentic old time architecture/buildings and made it fun to be seated in what appeared to be an old upstairs bedroom. Our waiter,... More
