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.

Birthday dinner for my wife. Excellent food and service. I had broiled red trout with vegetable medley and my wife had oyster and shrimp combo with mashed potatoes. Oysters and shrimp perfectly fried with a light breading. Red trout some of the best I have had. An appetizer of calamari was the... read more

This was a stop for necessary items of Pirates and some food. And food we had. While my cousin-in-law had the buffet, I went with the burrito. My wife had a salad, so we could share the green with the beef. It was fantastic. And, once again, we had the greatest waitress of the afternoon. It really adds. So does... More

If you're in Savannah, The Pirate House is a must see! The service was excellent, my crab soup and calamari were both very good. At the end of our meal, My whole family enjoyed the free tour by the pirate. Would definitely recommend. My family will be back

I had read about this place online and a friend recommended we at least try it so we did! The food was very good! We specifically loved the Mac and cheese! The atmosphere was very historical, still smelled a bit musty in my opinion but I guess that's just part of historical dining. If you've never tried it, it's a... More

This place is known for its' fried chicken and we learned why! The setting IS a former 18th century pirate hangout and contains the oldest house in Georgia which makes for a quaint vibe and setting. The menu offers a wide range of choices but the fried chicken that is glazed with pecans is a must do!

We had heard of this place and our children definitely wanted to visit. It was fun from the very start. Walking up to the building at night added to the excitement. We were led through the house and seated in a packed room. Our waiter was great. The fried chicken was great! A costumed pirate walked through and entertained our... More

Interesting experience at Pirates' House, as, of course, they have some pirates that are wandering around. Good food and carefully personnel. Still have to pay attention to the menu book, that has gothic characters and is kind of hard to read in the restaurant low light.
