The location is steeped with history. The food was so so. There's a buffet and a full menu. Might be a great spot for kids. Busy. We didn't try the buffet but it was pretty small. I had the pimento cheese burger which was okay. My colleague had the chicken Caesar which she enjoyed.

We had lunch here at the buffet. The food I tried was southern style and good. The place was all decorated for Halloween and quite festive. There was a pirate walking around that offered to show us around and tell us the history of the place after we were finished with lunch. I love it, very interesting! Our server was... More

This building is three older building put together. I would say access requires some steps. Main floor can be reached with a ramp. Food is good, staff is helpful and polite. Mostly fish based food plus steaks. Upper moderate to lower expensive. Good for groups and family. Kids meals are reasonable. Fun experience in Historic old Downtown Savanah. Meal plus... More

Next time, I would tour the grounds and cool off with one of their speciality drinks in the bar. The food was average and our waitress was sweet but seemingly overwhelmed. Not worth waiting for a table.

The Pirates House was marketed as being housed in a historic building, so we envisioned rustic charm. What we got was a run down facade, an ambiance lacking interior, and a touristy feel. However, the food was actually quite good, and the service was excellent. If you are looking for a very casual, kid friendly place, and do not mind... More

Dinner was amazing! Great menu, great food and amazing staff. Enjoyed hearing all the history there. The Rum menu was off the hook! It's the oldest building there in Savannah. It's not the prettiest old building on the outside but inside it's amazing. They host a lot of weddings and events there. You get a lot of great food for... More

We decided to eat here the last night of our trip which was a great decision. We ate then asked for a tour of the home which they gladly do for guests.

Sat in the bar, good service, solidly good food and a very well stocked gift shop upstairs. Go here for your pirate or nautical themed t-shirts. A great lunch stop on the trolley route.

We arrived for a late lunch. We had the buffet which had many southern favorites. My favorite was the brocolli casserole anf the key lime pie. I would highly recommend this restaurant. They also offer tours of the restaurant since it is a historic building.

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.
