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.

We eat at the Pirate House every time we're in Savannah. If you're from the Southeast you may not find the buffet exceptional, however, the menu is great! I LOVE the crab melt sandwich. The fried green tomatoes are excellent, although they stuck together in a stack. the pimento cheese sauce was great with the tomatoes. The wait staff is... More

While vacationing in Savannah we ate at the Pirate House and were very surprised at the choice of menu and the food . The she crab soup is excellent as well as the Crab Augratin. The sea food platter was especially good. The sea food was fresh and the portions were large. Honey buttered bisquits were served while we waited... More

This restaurant is in an historic building which dates back to 1734 when routy seamen and pirates gathered here. The restaurant today has numerous rooms that you can eat in and each seems to have its own stories and history. We were there with a group, so had a buffet. I have to say that everyone raved about the food.... More

Wonderful, fabulous, fantastic, The Pirates House has been the icing on the cake of our trip to Georgia (we are from the UK). From the outside the building looks like it might fall down at any minute but take the risk and go inside. We sat in the bar but you can eat in the restaurant for the buffet menu... More

$100+ for dinner for a family of 3 we expected great food. The pecan fried chicken (which is suppose to be their signature dish) was drenched with syrup and pecans...not good. The service was good, but the food was not.

If you like history and eclectic dining experiences, I recommend it. I also recommend reservations and ask to be seated in the Herb House. Trust me, it's the best part. The food was delicious and very large portions. Be ready to box it up!! Our sever was polite and efficient.

Was told to go to Mrs Wilkes for lunch but didn't want to wait for an hour and the concierge recommended the Pirates House. He said it was good Southern food but very touristy. We decided to try it and had a wonderful meal with great service and even got a coin while we were eating for 10% off our... More

I and a girlfriend visited here in April. The booth atmosphere is cozy and private. We ordered food off the menu, and were not very impressed overall. Of everything we ordered, only the crab cakes were acceptable.

After several trips to Savannah, I always figured the Pirate House was a tourist trap with expensive food that was more of an attraction for kids and parents....but when I was talked into going when on vacation in savannah I was more than blown away at the experience. The setting was so interesting and cozy...there was even an onsite historian... More

The Pirate house is a very old house turned into a restuarant that is supposed to be haunted. They have a pirate roaming around that will be give you a tour and story and I recommend you do this especially if traveling with children. Food is southern and fried and the buffet had a large variety and was tasty. There... More
