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 Food, Great Prices

We at here at the suggestion of our trolley guide. This is supposedly one of the most haunted places in Savannah. The food was great and so were the prices. They have a quaint gift shop upstairs where you can find t-shirts, hats and other gifts and toys.

We enjoyed getting a tour from a real pirate of this very old building. The menu has many options and our servings were huge! I ordered the pecan coated fried chicken which could have used crispier crust. It still tasted quite delicious. My husband had lightly fried shrimp. He enjoyed them and the coating was quite light. They were not... More

This restaurant was pretty much as expected with the pirate theme both inside & out. I would agree the food was fpgood, but not great. It was worth the money. The place was fun & the drinks were good, & there was some random chick dressed like a pirate that kept floating through our area rambling on but not making... More

Our original expected wait-time was 45 minutes, we but a table opened up at the bar. The service was fun- rough around the edges, so not for the faintest of hearts. My husband got the buffet and was disappointed, the selection was 5-6 items and the quality wasn't very good. The rest of us ordered off the menu and enjoyed... More

Pirates House offers a fantastic Sunday buffet with all the southern favorites represented like mac and cheese, greens (collards), pole beans, fried chicken, seafood casserole and more. A bread basket is included. Every bite yummy. The buffet includes a dessert of your choice. We chose banana pudding and peach cobbler. Just like mom's. Or-you can order from the regular menu...

This place has a great atmosphere for kids but the food is par for the course and is way overpriced for what you get. Great gift shop and drinks.

It is a beautiful church and if you're interested in going to mass during a weekday it is less than 30 minutes.

The whole pirate theme is a bit silly but there's a lot of real history - and really good food! Our waiter knew the history extremely well and was delighted to talk to us about it. One of the best meals we had while in Savannah.
