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.

Our visit at The Pirate's House was very good and enjoyable. The food was very nice, along with the service we received. We had the lunch buffet which only lasts until 3:00 pm, so for any future Pirate House-goers, plan ahead. The place is very cool and historic to be in, especially if you like a good ghost story.

Had the mango salmon and it was pretty good. Friend had the jambalaya and it was soupy. Lots of oil at the bottom. Service was average. Nothing spectacular but a pretty decent place. It just didn't wow me in any way.

We were recommended by a long time friend who used to live in Savannah - what a treat!! The staff was fantastic and efficient while the food was to match! The old house is very old and comfortable. The Parmesan Crusted Tilapia was my favorite! Thank you!

My wife and I went to the Pirate's House to grab a quick bite while touring Savannah in November. The food was very good and we were treated with a tour of the property which has a very interesting history. If you take the tour remember to ask about the staircase! It will blow your mind!

We loved the building...very unique and fun for family with or without kids! The veggies were by far my favorite. Others in my group said the fried chicken was great! I personally thought it was ok but not fabulous! They have huge servings so I wish I would of shared with my hubby but we had leftovers so it was... More

Seven friends from Bluffton, SC, enjoyed the Christmas show at the Savannah Theatre on December 7 and then went to The Pirate's House for dinner. The first bite of the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia was so succulent and tasty, it was pure pleasure! Four of us had ordered that meal, and all of us thought it was one of the best... More

The food here was just average, the lighting wasn't very good and it looked a little run down. We ate in the very back room so it wasn't anything special. It was close to our hotel so we tried it out. The history is interesting. Food ….just plain jane.
