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.

Wanting something fun, my husband and I visited The Pirate's House for lunch during a recent trip to Savannah. He's a pirate fan, so we thought this would be entertaining. We loved hearing about the pirate history, and the restaurant building was incredible. My husband got the lunch buffet and I got the fried pork chop sandwich... both options were... More

This was the best place we went in Savannah! The actual building is alluring with its rich history! The restaurant has tours guided by a gentlemen dressed as a pirate and knows his history! I had the chicken with squash casserole, which was wonderful. Everything is delicious down the the amazing biscuits and cornbread that are brought to the table.... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation. We have a 12 year old and it was supposed to be entertaining with the pirate theme, some history and good food. What a total disappointment! The waiter had the personality of a cracker. The other tables around us had waiters who were telling them about the history of the building (I... More

We were seated in a small dining room (there are several rooms to choose from) and just decided to eat from the buffet when in walked about 50 girl scouts into our room. They were extremely well behaved, but one of their leaders kept shouting orders at them and was very loud and obnoxious. I enjoyed the buffet, especially the... More

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?

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
