Description: 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.

“Great place, good food”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The food is good, though I wouldn't go to the place just for that given how many fabulous restaurants you can find in Savannah. We go once or twice a year for the ambiance and the history of the building, and the silly touristy nature of the place. If you've got family/friends in from out out of town and they have kids with them, go here and you won't regret it. Take the time to do the pirate tour--most of the guides will tailor it to your interests and provide as much history as you want.

“History and food!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We ate here last week. There were 4 adults who all had the buffet. Everyone found a choice they really enjoyed! The food is good and we would return for a quick lunch. The old building adds to the appeal!

“Atmosphere Plus”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This spot reeks of history. Found my way to the bar early evening and was very happy with service and the spring rolls with pulled pork and collard greens. An entree of shrimp scampi with linguini, garlic,capers and white wine was spectacular. Amazing that the kitchen could be so good as there are several tour buses outside at all times. Oh yes, the key lime pie also hit the spot. Thumbs up for the Pirate's House.

“Pirate Smiling Sam”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I didn't visit the restaurant but it was a highlight of our tour when the pirate Smiling Sam jumped on our trolley outside the The Pirate House restaurant. Funny and in pirate garb and character telling us about how the tunnels were made to smuggle spirits in to Savannah.

“Go on a tour after your meal with the Pirate that works there!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We enjoyed our late lunch, which is much cheaper than the dinner menu. We took a guided tour with the pirate that works for the Pirate House and he educated us a lot on the property and history. It was very interesting. Please tip him
