“Experience Over Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Lets get this out of the way- food is average. If hitting the buffet you'll get what is to be expected at nearly any buffet, good but not amazing food. Reasonable prices for the area. Where you're getting your money's worth is the pirate entertainment. Pirate guides are colorful, passionate and vibrant. Free and on demand, but worth a thanking tip. Well worth a stop in.

“Horrible food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

My fiancé and I had both dined here as children and has great memory's of the Pirate house.We went back while in Savannah. The building is absolutely amazing,maybe that's the reason they can serve such horrible food at high prices and get away with it. Our meals were Denny's like and about five times the price,25-30 dollars a meal. The lesson here is that some things are better left as a memory!

“Best buffet in Savannah”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

We first went to the Pirate House on our honeymoon two years ago and loved this place. We came back to Savannah for our 2nd anniversary and could not wait to come back. Once again we came right at 11am when they opened and got the buffet. I absolutely loved the squash casserole. We would choose this over Lady and Sons any day. I loved all the history of the building and the historian dressed up as a pirate who comes to your table is great. Ask him anything about the place and he can tell you. Wish we lived closer because we would be back more often.

“Worst meal on our trip!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

The food was awful, some of it was only warm, and it lacked flavor. The service was prompt, however the server could not pick up on how disappointed we were in the food. We sent plates back with a lot of food on them. The building is interesting on the outside, however do not waste your time.
