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.

The atmosphere was awesome! I was a little disappointed in the fried chicken but everything else was great! The pirates give great tours of the house and share recent ghost stories of the staff! Really cool place but reservations are a must

This was part of Ghost Tour by Old Savannah Tours. The dinner was the highlight of the tour. Excellent wait staff and the food was spectacular. Honey buttered biscuits were to die for.

This place was a letdown to us after all the rave reviews. It was easy enough to get in to - no reservations were necessary. Our waiter was quite attentive. However, we were not at all impressed with the food. Our fried pickles appetizer were way too salty and not at all tasty. We just could not eat them. As... More

I really enjoyed lunch at the Pirates' House, the service was excellent and the food was tasty - where else can you enjoy a nice meal at a haunted ex-pirate hangout?

Food was great!! The she crab soup was to die for. And the shrimp scampi was deeeeeeeelicous! Our server was nice and provided us with good information on the history of the place. Will definitely return to this great place.

I have eaten at this restaurant each time I've visited Savannah. It has been consistently good each visit. I love the atmosphere and the history, the food and the service. I just think it is a fun place and a great meal. Be sure to take a chance to listen to the pirates talk about the history - you may... More

This place was a little too touristy for our tastes. The pirates in costume did not overcome the average food. Maybe if I was 10 years old again...

We read about this place on Tripadvisor before going. It was also recommended by a family member who had been there. The site is historic and that was the only good part of the meal. We had a 12 year old boy with us, you would think the pirate would visit? We read that the waiters talked about the history... More

We met friends for dinner at The Pirates House and we had a great experience. The old historic building has a story, and it is unlike any other restaurant in town. We love to visit 'local' spots. Service was great, food was great. Very friendly staff and a pirate walking around to answer historical questions. Our group had seafood dip... More

This place is a great attraction and, conveniently, a trolley stop. There are a lot of things to look at and a lot of history in the buildings; they even offer a complimentary pirate tour after your meal. People seem to be complaining they run out of the specials, but that's because they're so good. I'd recommend getting the buffet,... More
