This has a great great food. It is one of the stops on the haunted trolly tour. Make this one of your destinations to eat.

The buffet was amazing--Southern cuisine at its best!!! Such a great venue with such history! There was a tour available, but we couldn't make it, the guide, Miss Anne sounded like she'd be a lot of fun to explore the Pirate House with!

Nice seafood in a historical setting. The service is nice and friendly. There is also a buffet of rather heavy southern food but we stayed with more healthy options. The former tavern is a birthplace of the Treasure Island book and a part of it is in one of the oldest buildings in Savannah.

Great historic restaurant. Food was good but a little high. Proportions are big could have split the entree. The waiter gave us a little history on the restaurant as well.

We went here as a group of 10 on a Friday afternoon and it was pleasantly uncrowned. It's a neat place full of lots of different rooms. Our group had our own room to ourselves. Our server was great, friendly, and full of useful information about Savannah. The food was delicious! A pirate came room to room visiting everyone. We'll... More

We were recommended dozens of restaurants in historic Savannah at the Visitor Center that day, but we chose The Pirates House for its cool name and claim to fame as the oldest tavern in America. What a treat we got in return for our selection: a young feisty pirate maiden to greet us at the door; an incredible meal to... More

Ten people in our group; server was patient, courteous, and helpful. Variety of items on the menu met everyone's tastes--from alligator to green tomatoes--and everything in between, including pork chops, steak, award-winning pecan encrusted chicken and every kind of seafood imaginable. Portions were much larger than expected. Plenty of warm bread/rolls in the bread basket. So--food was outstanding. The resident... More

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.
