A unique restaurant located in a building parts of which date back to the 1700s that was once frequented by pirates, offers lunch and dinner daily. We chose the Sunday lunch buffet which offered a buffet of traditional southern prepared variety of vegetables and delicious fried chicken and pot roast. Delicious food and a few pirates still can be seen... More

The Pirates were very exciting to our five-year-old daughter. We didn't stay for an entire meal but we had the crab dip with pita points and it was pretty awesome! Wine and bar is overpriced but that's with any place in Savannah. It's a really fun old historic building probably has ghosts. I'll go back and check for them next... More

The restaurant is different. It looks very old from the outside and it is! Try a couple of hundred years old. They say Robert Louis Stevenson was there and inspired to write Treasure Island. We heard a lot about it before we went particularly the lunch buffet. We would recommend the Ghost Hunt that includes dinner there. It was around... More

The atmosphere is definitely eerie. The history of the house is so cool but it doesn't stop there. The food is incredible. I had the highly recommended Honey Pecan Fried Chicken. O. M. G. If you go, you must try the fried chicken. It's delicious.

Most restaurants try to have some theme or atmosphere and most of the time they are boring, BUT NOT THIS TIME. The atmosphere is real history, real pirates, real cool. The food was great, the employee were great, but the acting pirate girl was awesome. She even passed my foolproof pirate test. Good job! Overall A++

Met some old time friends for dinner. The place is build around the oldest house in Savannah built in 1733. Also there are tunnels connected to the river and our Blake (our waiter) shared a few ghost stories with us. The Old Pirate's house first opened in 1753 as an inn and became a meeting place for pirates and sailors.... More

Didn't have any ghost encounters like some there have. I ordered the seafood platter. Was good, little on greasy side but all was fried. My husband got shrimp and grits. He said it was fine. It's the experience to go here and eat.

It is not often that we lick our fingers while eating supper, but the fried chicken with pecan honey sauce was worth it. That was one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. I enjoy a fine steak or seafood dinner, but this was easily as good as any expensive fine dinner I have had. My husband and... More

We stopped here on our way out town and it was amazing! The chicken is really good. Both the kids chicken strips and the pecan chicken. The spring rolls are also very good. The biscuits and corn bread is amazing. We really enjoyed eating here and will definitely be back.

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.
