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.

Overall we were very pleased. The fried green tomato sald was awesome & my husband crab augratin was delish. Kids had shrimp & chicken fingers good there too. Waiter was excellent as was atmosphere, only issue was our bar drinks were all watered down. We ordered their twist on the mint julep...not remembering the name, but it was a total... More

Everyone should eat here at least once while in Savannah. It is full of history and pirate stories of Shanghai-ed men who were drunk or knocked out and spirited out to the waiting pirate ships via a tunnel under the building. Again, this place is a bit on the expensive side but the food is delicious.

The food was excellent and plentiful so be sure to go hungry. Our waiter was entertaining. This building was used by real pirates and there is a tour guide ( a female pirate) who will explain the history and show you the original trap door and tunnels used by the pirates.

We ate dinner at the Pirates’ House Restaurant in Savannah on the 4th of July. The restaurant is very popular and there was a steady stream of people coming and going. I would highly recommend making a reservation beforehand so that you don’t have to wait for a table to open up. Given the number of people it makes you... More

Excellent food and wonderful service. We had the classical fried chicken and baby back ribs, friend chicken was excellent, baby back ribs were great but a bit too much sauce for our preference, with that we had two glasses of wine and a ten dollar off coupon from Savannah taste experience. Bill came to 55 bucks and change. Ambiance was... More
