The Olde Pink House Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We ate in the downstairs cellar area. It was too crowded in the area for tables. The room had a bar so parties waiting for their table crowded the area making it impossible to hear or enjoy your meal. The room should have been reserved for bar and waiting parties only. If it were not Thanksgiving, the crowding would not have been as bad.
Our first experience at Olde Pink House for Thanksgiving 2017 was perfect! Great cocktails, 3 course meal, every item was delicious, loved our server and all the staff we encountered, cheerful atmosphere, such a fun day for our family. We had some traditional items like the turkey and stuffing, but got to have a deviled crab, blackened oysters, and a few other things we wouldn't have made ourselves. We had our 8 month old with us and everyone was very friendly and accommodating for her as well. Overall, wonderful!
Definite pros and cons.
Pros - the restaurant is gorgeous. Very historic and neat with so many different rooms over 3 levels. We ate in a room upstairs with a beautiful view. The oysters were great. The blt salad and scallops also amazing. The planters tavern after dinner was great with amazing fast service and a fabulous piano player. If we r back in Savannah we will just eat in there.
Cons - it was horrendously slow to get anything. They kept apologizing but it didn’t hurry it up. Literally over 20 min to get the first drinks. The excuse was the drink spilled and they had to redo it which is ridiculous. We arrived at 715 and didn’t finish til almost 930. They just repeatedly said the manager was checking on it. Nothing was done. Never saw a manager. Many other tables were also complaining. Unsure if they were understaffed or if this is the norm there but it was not good. Food wise the duck we ordered wasn’t crispy at all and very dry. I would not recommend that at all. I asked if the napkins were lint free or if I could get a black one and the hostess had no idea what I was talking about. Thankfully the waitress did.
Overall it was a good experience and If I visit again I will go back to the planters tavern for sure
Beautiful restaurant. Made a late reservation and place was packed. We had the pulled pork sliders which were amazing. The fried green tomato BLT was awesome as well, although wasn’t hot. Nothing was hot when we it actually. We shared the fried chicken and Mac and cheese. The Mac fax to be sent back because it was WAY too salty. Mashed potatoes subbed instead and they were very good. Seems like most reviews with complaints say salty. Interesting that hasn’t ever been addressed. Beautiful restaurant with fun back story.
Service was great - knowledgeable, courteous,
Ambiance was great - it's a cool house, huge
Food was okay - starters we found were hit and miss, her dinner (their signature flounder) was good, my pork tenderloin was dry and uneventful
I'd give it a go again just for the setting but would be careful with my order
You can’t go wrong visiting this historic gem in Savannah. We highly recommend dining in the tavern downstairs. You feel like you’re walking back in time. 1771 early America with a British vibe. You feel transported in time. We feel in love!! And the ghosts are an added intrigue! You won’t be disappointed! LOVED!!
To start, I’m not a fan of push polls, where questions are formulate to elicit whatever answer the pollster is looking for.
So to be asked “How are you enjoying your meal?” indicates that the server is leading a diner to say that (s)he IS enjoying it, whatever the reality. Why not just “How is everything?”
We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the old house because after a few minutes’ wait we were led to the table closest to the front door, just inside the dining room to the right of the entrance. It was, however, a great seat to watch the wait staff come and go.
The food was very good but the surprising lack of ambience robbed the meal of some of its enjoyment.
Overall just an average experience.
While visiting Savannah on vacation with my daughter we were both extremely disappointed with the dining experience. The food wasn’t what I expected, small portion on my plate and over done on my daughter’s plate. The restaurant was great about splitting our soup and appetizers, but the flavor was lacking on both. Our server was good when we were seated but after that we didn’t see her but a couple of times. There was a small child that cried in our room through most of our meal, which ruined the whole experience.
The food was decent .. I ordered the pan seared salmon with mashed potatoes which was very well done, my wife got the risotto which was not the best, overall nothing really great however I was very disappointed since I had specially asked that it was my wife’s birthday and they had several people in there celebrating birthdays and the staff got some candles and a special dessert for them and I was expecting they would do something similar however there was nothing special not even a cookie even after puttin the instructions on open table and also telling the server that I was celebrating my wife’s birthday.
It has been 9 years since our last visit. This was our 9th anniversary dinner. The atmosphere has changed from quiet and romantic to rather loud. We ate in a small room 9 years ago and this time the ballroom, which was loud at 9:30 on a Saturday night. With that being said, the food was fantastic. I had waited 9 years for a bowl of she crab soup to measure up to The Odle Pink House and no one came close. I had the duck, which was delicious and my wife had the shrimp and scallops, which she described as okay.
We drove 7.5 hours for the food and memories were made once again.
I was surprised that the restaurant was out of wine that I drink and/or does not offer the wines I drink. I asked for a glass of Riesling and was told the restaurant was out. I asked for a glass of moscato and was told they did not offer that. So I just drank water.
Chose this restaurant for a special night out. We had a group of 5 women on a long weekend vacation to Savannah. Space was beautiful, location was great and food was very good. We arrived early to check out the bar, which we read was worth going early to see. Unfortunately, our bar tender could not have been more rude. She failed to smile, completely avoided eye contact numerous times and even after a friend asked about drink options several times, she never once gave a recommendation. She was clearly bothered by having to service our group and did nothing to create a positive experience. When our waiter came to take our group to our table, I attempted to get her attention 3 times. She blatantly looked past me each time. The rest of my party was already gone and seated up stairs, and I remained standing there waiting for her attention. To no avail. I proceeded to the table. After having been seated at our table for some time, she came busting into the room, approached our table and advised that we owed a bar bill. First time we had her attention all night. I had already talked to our waiter and he was adding the bar bill to our dinner bill. I must pay credit to the Manager that night, Brad Smith, who graciously made our evening a nice night by taking care of the appetizers we had at the bar and promising to address the bar tenders behavior. Just a shame she could have such a negative impact when so many others did such a nice job.
Went as a date on a weekend get away. Great service started at the door. Once we were seated the staff was quick and was very knowledgeable about their menu. The waiter recommended the Grooper which was fantastic. Loved the place and would recommend if your in town call and make a reservation.
The Olde Pink House truly went above and beyond for our anniversary by giving us a reserved table by a fire place downstairs... they even went out of their way to place an arrangement of roses on the table before we sat down! Our server Taryn was outstanding - Taking many of her recommendations, we ordered the southern sushi, scallops (with horseradish mashed potatoes), and filet. They also finished our night up with a “happy anniversary” dessert plate. The atmosphere downstairs was cozy and intimate, and just what we were looking for for our anniversary dinner - would definitely recommend!
