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.

I ate at Pirates' House about 25 years ago and always wanted to return. I had the opportunity in June when my husband and I were on vacation with 2 of our granddaughters. It was nice to share it with them. It was actually nothing like I remembered but it was very nice. The food was great and... read more

My son was reading Treasure Island for school, so we thought it would be fitting to eat at the Pirates' House. So much history in this fun restaurant. Every time we passed the restaurant it was busy. We were worried about parking but were able to find parking easily behind the restaurant. I think lunch time is the better time,... More

The employees are dressed as pirates. The food was excellent even my kids found something they liked. If you're lucky you might get a small tour with one of the pirates.

We didn't get to eat here-line was long!!! Wanted to because of the great reviews we had heard. Really need to make a reservation a couple of days in advance-we couldn't make one for the next night either.

The buffet food here was fantastic! My family of adults and children really enjoyed it--lots of southern comfort foods. We didn't have a wait time at lunchtime on a weekday, and it was right on our trolley tour, which was convenient. I recommend!

We made reservations for 8pm and were seated on time. We arrived early and took in the gift shop upstairs. Because of this our first impression was that the restaurant is a hokey tourist trap. It is a hokey tourist trap , but there is also a lot of history and mystery. Once we were seated in the Captains room... More

Visited with my family for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. We were seated immediately. Service was terrific and the server had alot of little tidbits of info about the building's history, it's alleged ghosts and Savannah. I had the 1776 burger and it was good, as was the shrimp Po boy my wife had. My kids enjoyed the pirate hats... More

We were really excited to visit this restaurant, but not 1 minute after we arrived and were waiting to be seated we saw two big cock roaches crawl across the floor. Then after checking the menu and prices out we decided the prices were way to expensive for our budget. I might have been more inclined to pay them if... More
