    The food is great, the service is friendly, attentive, and caring. The restaurant has a rich history in a city that is noted for historic people and venues. It is clear that The Olde Pink House takes pride in its heritage. Savannah offers many experiences like this, but this restaurant is at the top of the list.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Olde Pink House. As recommended, we made a reservation & were seated upon arrival. This historic house is lovely & each of its many dining rooms contain only about 10 tables so each room has an intimate feel. Service was excellent & our food (wine, appetizers, entrees, dessert & coffee) was superb! Compared to other restaurants we visited in Savannah, The Olde Pink House was an outstanding value because it has it all: ambiance, large selection of excellently prepared Southern food, top-notch service & fairly reasonable prices. Don't miss it!

    The building, service and food were all great. After dinner don 't forget to go to the basement bar for live piano entertainment. Two issues were that the food was not hot enough and there was a little too much beading on the soft shel crabs. Enjoy for about $100 pp all in,

    The Olde Pink House was recommended to us by a friend prior to our short trip to Savannah, and did not disappoint! My starter, the baby field green salad with goat cheese, had a champagne vinaigrette which hit just the right note of champagne flavor without overpowering. I would return to Savannah just to have it again! The nut-crusted tilapia was simply superb. Lovely candlelit atmosphere in charming historic grand home. Service impeccable! Do not miss this restaurant no matter how short your trip to Savannah!

    We were referred to the Olde Pink House and it definitely lived up to its recommendation! Everything was superb! The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful! My husband and I split the entrée and appetizer and it was served to us already split up on two plates! I had commented that it was my 50th birthday when I made the reservation, it was relayed to our server and I was surprised with a beautiful birthday dessert. Aimee was our server and she was outstanding in every way. We will definitely recommend to others!

    We were in from the Boston area, and this place came recommended. Good thing we made a reservation far in advance! The place was packed. We had a drink at the back bar, which was nice, but watered down. Be sure to check out the downstairs bar too - the place is very cool. My husband had the fried pork chop for dinner, which was excellent, but VERY large! He also had the fried green tomato appetizer, which was solid, but not the best we've had. I started with the gazpacho, which was fresh, but spicy. I ordered the salmon - cooked perfectly, and the horseradish potatoes were delish. The salmon was very good, but not much different than salmon at any other place. Our waitress was nice, but must have been a theater major - very animated!

    The Olde Pink House is a Savannah must see! The restaurant itself is unique and beautiful! The service was amazing including the hostess who greeting us at the entrance, our server, and other servers who stopped to ask if we needed anything. The food was very good but expensive and typical of fine dining portions. I recommend the signature "Pink Lady" cocktail which was amazing. The corn muffins, fried green tomatoes, and BLT salad were fabulous. The jumbo sea scallops were very good but included only three scallops. The macaroni and cheese was very tasty and the server was very flexible with substituting sides. Overall I recommend the Old Pink House for the good food but more so for the experience and the outstanding service.

    The restaurant is so beautiful, a 1781 mansion with several rooms on 2 floors to dine in, that are tastefully furnished. I thought the dress code would be a bit fancier, but several people wore shorts, jeans and were fine. The she crab bisque was a must! We also tried the fried chicken salad and the Chocolate torte. All perfect. After ordering dessert out waitress told us the mansions history, many interesting tidbits, like the ceilings are painted the palest blue because ghosts cannot pass through water. I wont spoil all it, hear it for yourself. And take her up upon leaving as you must walk into all the rooms and see the gorgeous gilt mirrors against chocolate walls in the ball room.

    Our first time coming to eat at The Olde Pink House it was packed at dinner time so we decided to come back another time so we could enjoy it more. This time coming we chose to eat a late lunch to experience the house during the day. I had the salmon special and my husband had the BLT salad. We shared their delicious key lime pie for dessert. I highly recommend trying this restaurant while visiting Savannah.

    We were there for a late lunch and the restaurant allowed us to order from the dinner menu. All meals were well prepared and tasty. Our server was young (and pretty new) but under the watchful eye of the Head Waiter; he was personable and did a good job for us and well hid his nervousness quite well. We had a great wine for a very reasonable price. The clientele was mostly tourists but several there were plenty of locals too. Atmosphere is casual even though the tables are set somewhat formally. Didn't avail ourselves but a great Bar at street level and separate Tavern in the basement.

    To be able to have a fantastic and divine dinner at this historic house was incredible! The food was amazing too! Had the fried green tomatoes to start followed by pecan crusted chicken breast in berry sauce which was to die for! The service was great as well and they went over and beyond to make me feel welcome. My dinner ended with a private tour of the entire house which was an incredible experience!

    This place is so fabulous. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. Southern hospitality at its finest. They really try so hard to take care of you and ensure that you have a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, I wasn't hungry enough to eat there, so I didn't get to try all the delicious sounding apps. The salad I had was yummy; although could've had a few more strawberries in it considering it was called a strawberry salad. The entrees were perfect and the favors all melded together perfectly. Also, be sure to go into the basement bar / "speakeasy". The ambiance alone is worth it!

    This gorgeous Victorian home boasts great service, creative and traditional flavors, impeccable and friendly service in a beautifully appointed restored mansion. The signature dessert of praline cup with vanilla ice cream, mango puree and fresh berries is a must have. The arugula salad with goat cheese and pecans was delicious, and the fish special was fantastic. I remembered this restaurant from a trip 10 years ago and had to go back when I was in the area.

    After being seated 35 minutes past our reservation time, we were not overly impressed with our whole dining experience. The food was ok, but the room we were in was extremely noisy, due to a very loud party in an adjoining room. Adding to that, there is absolutely no air circulating in this particular ,room which made it uncomfortably warm.

    our favorite restaurant on a recent visit to Savannah. The house is historic, the setting romantic and the staff are friendly, attentive and clearly indicate "...our house is your house" as they invite you to tour the house. The cornbread and biscuits were absolutely delicious, the whole flounder flash fried was heavenly and the diver scallops delectable. Cornmeal crusted oysters and a kale salad were as good as they get. The only negative is the place can get noisy and a roving singer got somewhat boisterous with a group in an adjacent room. It became our #1 dining experience in Savannah.

    The Olde Pink House is a Savannah fixture and is well worth checking out. One thing you might not know is to ask for a tour of the restaurant. They are happy to oblige and it really is a very interesting building. It even has a couple of inventions of Thomas Jefferson. The food is southern comfort food so bring an appetite and don't expect to lose any weight eating here. My wife had a dish you would never think of ordering in a fancy restaurant - Southern Fried Chicken. It was very good. I had some falling-off-the-bone pork shoulder. Everything was very good and the wait staff is amazing. They really know the food and can make good suggestions. They are also attentive and cordial. Check out the bar if it has a seat.

    Great food in a great setting. Our meal was very enjoyable with several good southern selections. My single malt scotch was a small portion and highly priced for a 12 year old scotch. Service could have improved as I had to ask for water refills and there was a wait at the end of dinner for the check. Regardless, the quality of the food made up for the slight lack of service. The restaurant staff was very friendly and welcoming.
