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.

Seafood is amazing!

Tourist attraction but the best seafood I've ever had! Went there with my family & everything was amazing. We went to a number of restaurants in Savannah & Charleston. This was the best by far. In my search for she-crab bisque, the Pirate House's was unparalleled.

Pirate House is always a good choice. this particular evening there were no tables available so we opted for a seat at the bar. We had a very accommodating bartender who made sure we had a great experience. The drinks were cold, the food was hot and great, we had a great time. Try it I know you will like... More

This restaurant is the oldest in the area. We ate early, around 5, so we didn't have to wait. The wait staff were great and helpful. The "pirate" made it entertaining.

We had the lunch buffett and it was outstanding with fried chicken, catfish, and several southern vetables. My favorite was the seafood au gratin . The best I have ever had. At 2 o'clock we had a15 minute wait . Service was very good. If you are in Savannah this is a must stop place.

We arrived in Savannah about 3 in the afternoon and were staying right next to The Pirate House. After getting set up in our vacation home we were hungry and decided to go next door for an early evening meal. All I have to say is WOW!!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the Gumbo. My husband and I both said at... More

On our recent visit to Savannah, Georgia, someone recommended the Pirates' House Restaurant. Excellent choice. Our server, Darren (from Essex, UK) was outstanding. Personable and very attentive. I had the buffet and my wife had a Reuben sandwich. The best Reuben she has had. Perfectly prepared. This place is perfect if you are traveling with children as they can be... More

It may be touristy, but this was one of our favorite things we did while visiting Savannah! The ambiance of this place is so much fun for the kids, and being historical, it was very enjoyable for my husband and I too. The staff was very friendly and engaged the kids too. The food was surprisingly good! We weren't expecting... More

on a road trip home from vacation we pulled off to eat here for a little entertainment for the children after a long drive and with a long drive still ahead. The food was very good. We had chicken fingers with salad (the chicken finger plate is easily enough for 2 adults to split), and burgers. Even though it was... More
