Diner Reviews
  • "Mixed emotions here. Was seated right away (+) but it took 15 minutes to g.et water and 25 minutes to get a cocktail after ordering. The restaurant is vast with many rooms and the bar is 2 or 3 floors below. Menu is extensive and low-country rich. I tried to offset the richness by asking that no cream sauce, just a bit of olive oil, be available on the side for my main course. Despite that, the dish still came with parmesan cheese, pecans and a pool of balsamic vinegar. Our server tried very hard to make up for the kitchen/bar shortcomings including having a manager come over offering to replate the dish. But don't go for a great food experience...you will be disappointed."

  • "There was a twist tie in our jalapeno popper appetizer which luckly we found by cutting into it. They seemed mildly apologetic and didn't even take it off the bill."

  • "We've been to the Pink House many times. Love the service and the atmosphere but the food is mediocre and not what one would expect from a high end restaurant. We had the deep fried flounder, which is their signature dish and it was overcooked. Too much of the menu is deep fried and quite heavy. It's a good place to go for out of towners, due to the ambience, but not a place for foodies"

  • "We have been coming to The Olde Pink House for years, and it is as good as ever. It really is an old house so it’s lots of smallish rooms. There are some bigger areas upstairs. The bathrooms used to be like those you would find in an old house, but they have been much improved in recent years. The crispy scored flounder is their signature dish and I order it almost every time. When they are busy, it can be a little overdone, but every bite is still tasty. The wine list is excellent. They have a singer, Sida Sams, (on weekends only, I think) who comes around to the tables and takes requests. It may seem a little kitschy, but it’s fun. She has a great personality, and a nice voice. There is also a fabulous piano bar in the basement."

  • "The Old Pink House is certainly worth a trip for a special occasion on vacation or a special event. The food is just a little above average, and a bit overpriced, but the atmosphere, service, and location are first rate."

  • "Highly recommended for a romantic dinner. The service is above average with more than excellent attention to detail. The staff ensures a great experience. I highly recommend retiring to the basement lounge for dessert and after dinner cocktails."

  • "My wife and I went there for our first wedding anniversary and it was nearly perfect! The food was excellent and our waiter, Joey, was one of the best we've ever had. He was funny and knowledgeable about everything on the menu and suggested an excellent wine to go with dinner that was not an expensive bottle, which can be a risk at times when asking for wine suggestions. The noise level was perfect as it was easy to talk to each other. The only knock was that we had a reservation but had to wait over half an hour for our table to become available and there was little communication from the hostess about what was going on. But once we sat down it was a spectacular evening! We will certainly be going back the next time we're in Savannah."

  • "Had a wonderful meal there. Food was outstanding. Service was excellent as well. Always order ravioli, but typically don't enjoy it by the end. I was left wanting more of the hand-made ravioli filled with sweet potatoes and Vidalia onions. Just great. Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "I have visited Savannah many times and tried several places to eat. I would consider myself somewhat of a foodie and always thought the Pink House was just too obvious and likely too "touristy", so I had never eaten there. However, on a recent girls weekend, I decided to try it out, if for no other reason than because my friends had read so much about it. We had the most wonderful experience. I appreciated the variety of price points on the menu, the flexibility of the kitchen, the fabulous food, great service and reasonable wine list. We all raved on our walk back to our hotel. I will absolutely make it a point to eat there each time I go to Savannah. The restaurant deserves all the accolades it consistently receives."

  • "Felt welcome right away! Manager came around and gave each table personal attention, informative! Loved the combo of roll, biscuit, and corn bread! Best biscuit I've ever had. Great wines, everything cooked great! Sorbet combo yummy! So full I couldn't finish it all. Highly enjoyable experience."

  • "Great meal. I ordered the New York and it was cooked perfectly. The oysters on a half shell were local and fresh. Also had the fried green tomato blt salad and that was amazing. And when I was in Savannah I tried a few and they had the best Sazerac in town The ambiance was amazing, just sorry we did not see the Habersham ghost. Got more "yes sir" and "thank you sir" than I have in another dozen restaurant visits. And it was tough to drink water because they refilled them so often. This last remark is a little tongue and cheek. Don't miss this spot, if I get back there will do it again."

  • "The food was okay except for cold she-crab soup. The table was in the corner just off the front entrance and very comfortable. The service was attentive, friendly but not extraordinary. I would of liked some banter, for example, someone to ask me where I was from and if I wanted the lowdown on the history of restaurant or the dining room we were situated. We had fun!"

  • "I have eaten at the Pink house many times before but after this past experience I doubt that I will ever return. The steaks we ordered were fatty and tough and my other friend had a fried pork chop that was very disappointing to him. The waitress did not seem to care that we were dissatisfied with our meals. Never again. Thank you"

  • "The restaurant was unbelievably loud, service was poor and food was so disappointing. My food was cold when it finally arrived; I told the waitress who took it away and never heard from her about it again until she brought the check...with my food still on the bill! We had to wait another 10 minutes for her to take it off the bill and 15 to run our credit card. Beautiful interior but I wouldn't recommend going. Other places are better - food and service."

  • "This was out first visit to Savannah. We went to the restaurant with great expectations. We were seated in the main dinning room where several large groups were also seated. The noise level started loud and escalated through dinner. We didn't realize until after dinner that there were other more intimate rooms available. We had the signature flounder dish which was good and the server was very good except that he knew we were uncomfortable with the noise level but did not offer us information or the option of moving to a less noisy room. We probably should have left as soon as the noise level became uncomfortable. Instead we left disappointed with a headache. If your looking for a intimate dinner insist on a table in a small dinning room."

  • "We dined at the Olde Pink House for the second time and were not disappointed. The food is outstanding. I had fried lobster tails, unusual and very good. The building is historical and beautiful. Service was impeccable. We would highly recommend this restaurant................expensive but well worth it."

  • "My brother-in-law recommended this restaurant, he had dined there before.The staff was extremely friendly, we had a wonderful waiter named David who made our dining experience especially positive. We started with a lovely cool Georgia non alcoholic drink "peach Nehi" (can't wait to order it on-line) and some delicious cheese stick to nibble on while we waited for our lunch, starting with the "she crab soup" followed by "crab cakes" (all lump crab meat and deliciously spiced), the home cut fries were a little chewy and we ended the meal with the "praline confection", one word "scrumptious"! Definitively a restaurant we will visit again on another southern road trip."

  • "I have to say, while this historic place is an institution, it fell short of my high expectations. The appetizers were great, but the entree (scoured flounder) was overcooked with little meat and I wouldn't recommend it. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "It was our second visit to Pink House and food was excellent. Great service as well. My wife and I were first seated next to a loud party. Without asking the server, she apologized for the noise and asked if we would like to be seated elsewhere. Great dinner and amazing building."

  • "From start to finish this was an excellent choice. We were seated promptly, our server Josh knew the menu intimately and made excellent recommendations for our dinner. The food arrived quickly and prepared as we had requested. All the wait staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I can see why this restaurant consistently gets glowing reviews."

  • "I travel four states routinely. I have never found a better crab bisque. It melts in your mouth. The shrimp are so fresh and wonderfully prepared. Fried green tomatoes are top notch. It is hard to choose what to order. I finally took my wife here and she agrees. Reservations almost a must."

  • "This is exactly what a restaurant should be. Excellent food in the American mold, with lots of seafood. Sides are mainly southern (i.e.grits, greens, sweet potatoes) but well done without pointless cheffy touches. Service was attentive, and they did not assume that 3 middle-aged women would tip poorly or know nothing about food. The restaurant is set in an old mansion, so there are only a few tables in each room. Downstairs rooms have fireplaces and maybe a touch more atmosphere, but upstairs is just fine too. Not particularly modern, but who cares with food of this quality and balance?"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "As we've aged we've come to recognize that we can enjoy a restaurant experience much more, if we leave the table comfortably satisfied rather than sated beyond our needs. Our server was helpful in recommending an appetizer platter that we could share. We followed that with a bowl of the excellent she crab soup each and felt no need for an entree. When placing our order, we questioned our server about portion size and he stated that there would be no problem in ordering more food should we not be satisfied. This kind of response makes one realize that they are not going to be hurried through their meal to facilitate the restaurant's needs to turn over tables. Truly a not to be missed dining experience."

  • "We recently visited Savannah for the first time and The Olde Pink House came highly recommended. We arrived early and were invited to tour the home while we waited. We love historic places, so we especially enjoyed getting to do this rather just sit and wait. Then we were seated in one of the oldest rooms in the house, the fireplace was lit for us, and we were told a bit of history of the room. The food was absolutely delicious. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we left the restaurant saying it was probably the coolest dining experience we'd ever had. When we walked out, there was a pedi-cab sitting right outside, so we capped off the evening with that neat experience as well. Can't wait to return!"

  • "If you're looking for a great piano bar, Diana Rogers plays on weekends most of the time. The food was secondary as our purpose was to hear her. However, all of us enjoyed our meal, and the service was friendly and efficient. If you go, stroll thru the restaurant and check out the various rooms. We ate in the bar (to hear the music) but each room is also lovely. They were also very accommodating to special requests."
