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.

Good place to take the kids for dinner. Kids menus turn into pirate hats, eye patches, etc. Made reservations which was good as there was a wait for walk ins. Ordered maple fried chicken for dinner and was very good. Good choice of rum drinks.

Staff was extremely friendly, had a nice talk with several employees. The house looks amazing. The kids get pirates hats for dinner, they really liked it! Buffet was.. Hm medium. Fair price, nice vegetables and quick refill. Meat was not that great.

Went for the first time with friends and the food was sub par. Not what we expected from a Savannah historic site. Drinks we're slow coming out and had to wait forever for refills plus beer was warm. Food was very bland. Service was just OK. Didn't really seem to care about our wait or experience.
