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.

Okay we enjoyed this food and bartender so much on our previous visit to Savannah, we just had to go back again. We walked through the dining rooms, which were fairly crowded and noisy, and opted for the quieter bar. I ordered the chicken and sausage gumbo with red rice (11.95) It was huge portion, very flavorfull, lots of meat... More

The food is nothing special. If lived nearby, wouldn't want to come back. If you are with kids, the main draw is having the pirate come to your table and chat with you. On several occasions we tried to get the "pirate" to chat with us. At first, he walked by several times, looked at us and nodded while he... More

Have only been there once but will definitely eat there each time I go to Savannah. The house is an historical building where they actually shanghaied sailors in the day. The atmosphere, service and food were all excellent. The food is reasonably priced and the portions are large. The pecan fried chicken was outstanding and enough to feed two.

The historic aspect of this place drew us in and we are glad for the experience. The food was good. I had a crab sandwich and my husband and grandson had a burger. It wasn't extraordinary and in reality wasn't worth the wait with a small child that was hungry. The pirate character visiting us at the table was quite... More

OMG, this place is so good and so cool. The atmosphere is amazing, as is the food. My husband and I both ordered the honey pecan glaze fried chicken and it was ridiculous. We ate off of that food literally 2 whole days. We went as a part of the old savannah trolley ghost tour and rum cellar tour. It... More

This is a must - do while in Savannah. This is one of the oldest buildings in the city and the food is fantastic. Don't forget to ask "Country" for some of her tea!!! Delish! Also be sure to get the history and be careful not to fall in any tunnels😉

This was our second trip back to Savannah within a year because we loved it so much. I've eaten at a number of local establishments, but this is the only one I must do again. The dinner entres are about $18 to $25, but you get a lot of good quality food for that price. I consider myself a big... More

Great place for kids with an amazing dinner. Pecan Chicken was to die for and loved the pirate tour after dinner. Highly recommend!
