Wanted low country cooking for Valentines Day...this buffet is comparable to yet less costly than the more popular ones at Mrs. Wilkes and Paula Deens..plus the historical old-old building is fascinating

Our waiter, Blake provided excellent service. He was very familiar with the menu and able to answer all our questions. The wedge salad with candied bacon was crispy and fresh. The jumbo lump crab cake was delicious with almost no fillers. The grilled shrimp are USA and were so tender. My husband really enjoyed his She Crab soup and filet... More

While the buffet did not appeal to us, the sandwiches were quite good. The server was very friendly. We would definitely return.

I'm skeptical of anything pirate related but I was blown away by this place. We had the lunch buffet and it was fantastic. The collard greens are the best I've ever had. The kitchen staff was out filling the trays and were asking them questions when they offered to bring us some fried okra that was not on the buffet.... More

We visited this restaurant primarily because it is the oldest house in Savannah and frankly, the oldest place we have been in the US. It is a wonderful piece of history. Our server, Sibyl, was one of the kindest, most solicitous servers we have ever experienced. She kept my beverage glass brimming at all times and even gave us a... More

The ambiance of a historical, haunted house, in a classy state of antique disrepair, excellent friendly service, and absolutely the BEST scallops I have ever had the pleasure of devouring!!! Cooked, seasoned and served perfectly!! Wish I could visit here on a weekly basis!!! Again, my compliments to the chef who prepared our delicious dinner on January 15, 2017

Thank Nese

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.
