Got this as a gift, so of course I appreciated it. The tour came with group buffet style dining in the back of the place, so I can't say anything about the front room. The food on the buffet was just that. It was descent, but wasn't a lot to choose from. Definitely not for vegetarians. I heard a few... More

Keep in mind, we did not order off the menu. It was recommended to eat the buffet. Worst home cooked buffet for the price. We both had the buffet plus 2 teas plus a cup of she crab soup (which was good) and our bill was 50 dollars. Canned items.

Best she crap soup ever! I had crab cakes and broiled shrimp, while my husband had the scallops. All of it was cooked to perfection, so yummy. Serving portions were more than we could finish. Ali our waitress was fun, energetic, and attentive. We will definitely go back.

We stopped in for a later lunch. The she crab soup was delicious and the marmalade with biscuits were really good too! Each of our meals was delicious. The service was great and friendly. We walked by the buffet and really weren't impressed. I'd just order something off the menu. We would definitely visit again.

I'm in here all the time for work, I've never had a bad meal, or an unpleasant experience with any of the staff. They always go above and beyond.

This is the oldest building in Savannah, lots of rooms to explore, lots of history, supposedly a few ghosts, nice gift shop, good buffet - but nothing special. I had the buffet, enjoyed the crisp fried chicken, my husband had a large burger which he really enjoyed.

Thank Diane H

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.
