Great service and tasty food! Free parking onsite.
Nice! Enjoyed the authentic pirate vibe and meal!!
We went here for my husband’s birthday dinner, it was selected by him and he was mildly disappointed only the hostess recognized it despite listing our reservation as celebrating a birthday. He had the Harvest Platter and I had the Georgian Salmon. As natives of North Carolina and frequent visitors of our coast- we both agreed this place wasn’t much to write back home about. The food was good, however aside from the peach compote, it’s nothing we couldn’t have enjoyed back home. That said if you don’t frequent seafood restaurants then this will likely be enjoyable for you! Though be wary of the Chatham Artillery Punch, it wasn’t extremely fresh last night as the champagne was evidently flat due to taste.
Interesting history, fantastic food. Try the she crab soup!
We came in on a long weekend trip. The hostesses and the bartender were fantastic. The restaurant is charming and the food is delicious. However, our waiter was probably the most incompetent server I’ve ever had the displeasure of interacting with. From the moment we were seated in our tiny dining room, I could hear the other guests complain about Tom, our server. At first I just thought they were being Karens and that surely he wasn’t that bad, but I was wrong. On top of taking forever and not listening to us at all as we tried to order food and drinks, he made the entire experience so awkward it was unbearable. I asked him to leave the drink menu so I could order a cocktail after dinner, and he promptly gathered all the menus and removed them from the table. We asked for condiments we never received. In fact, anytime we wanted anything I basically had to scream across the dining room at him. I finally got him to pay enough attention to us to order our cocktails at the end of the meal, fortunately I memorized my order from the drink menu. When he brought the check we asked twice for, he had left the drinks off in what I thought was an effort to make the moment right. As we were signing our bill, he came back and snatched the wrong check he gave us and told us we needed to pay for our drinks. I felt like he was trying to accuse us of something. By far the worst service we experienced in the entire city. As former servers, my fiancé and I were beyond unimpressed. If we return, we will definitely ask for a server who isn’t Tom. Get a new job Tom…
Nice menu, with the focus on fish and seafood. Entrees came nicely prepared and hot. Both of our dishes were very tasty as was our appetizer. Our waiter, who has worked there for 8 years, was amiable and attentive. If you want to see history with good food, this is a must place. Great for families. Make a reservation.
Great experience at The Pirates’ House! We didn’t know what to expect, as we had never been there. But, the service was amazing. From the hostess to our server - it was top notch.
We ended up going with the buffet - yes a buffet! The food was fabulous. We had pretty subpar experience at every other place we ate at in Savannah, but this was our favorite!
Fried chicken, amazing home cooked veggies, and fabulous dessert!
Definitely recommend The Pirates House!
The buffet did not have enough to choose from. Red rice was not done, it was to wet and the rice was still hard. Put the red rice covered tight with aluminum foil in the oven. There was pork in all of the vegetables and some people don't eat pork because it's high in salt.
Food was great, however they don’t start doing the evening meals till after 4pm. We ate off the lunch menu. But the meals we had were excellent. Just wanted Steak and it was not on the lunch menu.
Terrible food and equally terrible service. The hostess and pirate were great so they upped our rating from a 1 to a 2. Don’t get the crab cake sandwich. Ick
We were pleased with the service and our food selections. We told our waiter we were going on a ghost tour and he was very efficient with our orders. Shared the pecan roasted chicken thaw as amazing and two had filet that was perfectly prepared. Fried shrimp was also good. Would go back another time.
Great time at Pirates House. We were disappointed that they were out of the blackened snapper which was what we had decided before coming we wanted but our second choices were great. Super good fries, crispy and unctuous. She crab soup was delicious and the biscuits with honey butter and orange marmalade were to die for! Great place for lunch!
Good southern cooking. Tourists stop.
Service was very rushed- no ketchup, no biscuits.
Food was overpriced and not very good. Crab appetizer was greasy. Steak was tough. Fried chicken was dry and over cooked. Bathrooms are very dirty.
The fried chicken was simply amazing and the she crab soup was crazy delicious! Definitely would go again but make reservations at least a week or 2 in advance, very popular place!
My grandmother had a senior trip to this restaurant a few years back when she heard I was visiting Savannah she insisted I try the Pirate’s House and get the Pecan Chicken. It was worth it!
This was our third time eating at The Pirates' House. We go every time we are in Savannah. The food is delicious, the wait staff is friendly and courteous, and the ambiance is amazing. We had a party of 10, and they sat us in one of the small rooms together. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed their food. My friends and I always get the chicken, and it is THE best!
Our food was good. No Pirates 🏴☠️ there for kids as that was why we went with our grandson.
MAKE A RESERVATION!!!
The dark atmosphere of the Pirate’s House lends itself well to it’s storied past. However, the food is horrible. I ordered Parmesan tilapia with crabmeat and there was no taste at all. Just oil. The very leftover old mashed potatoes were inedible and the green beans covered in oil. The same can be said for the other meal ordered. The mixed drink was not good. The only good part of eating there was the one glass of bourbon ordered.
A family favorite for many years. The pirate house has old Savannah charm. The food was delicious and service was perfect. We enjoy the ambiance of the building and the storied past of the pirates.
This place is awesome. Good food, great atmosphere. Gift shop was really nice!
We had lunch from the menu. The physical menu differed from the online menu we used before dining. There was a buffet lunch option, we just chose not to partake. Overall the food was good, the service was good and the dining rooms were interesting. The upstairs gift shop was well stocked and reasonably priced.
For my birthday and traveling with my daughter
Unique venue. Limited wine offerings. Grilled grouper was outstanding!!
The atmosphere was authentic with the original house and bar. The food was amazing and generous portions! I will definitely be a repeat customer.
It was just ok, nothing special about the place except the building itself and you will only see the area you’re seated in. Service and food was fair at best. The server was personable but very busy so it took exceptionally long to get anything we asked for. It’s clearly meant for tourists, single visit customers…
We went for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised with the ease of being seated and the friendliness of all the employees we encountered. The food was great and it will definitely be a must visit whenever we go to Savannah.
This was our first trip to Savannah. Our friends recommended Pirate's House and it did not disappoint! A delicious gluten-free menu and wine list. We would definitely try again.
The ambience is really nice. The food was horrible. We got 2 buffets and a shrimp Parm. None of us liked the food. We paid and went to a different restaurant. The server was very nice and the restaurant was clean. I would suggest you to walk through it and find out about the history, but possibly eat somewhere else.
Great food Abby was awesome. If you go ask for her.
Our food came out cold and the tilapia was a bit too fishy but the house itself was fun to see and tour. I like that we had the ability to walk around the property for a quick self-guided tour.
Oh my gosh-get the pecan crusted chicken. It’s the best chicken I’ve ever eaten. Such a cool historic place. Everyone on staff was super friendly and helpful.
Basically kicked out after getting our food because it was a shift change.
Fun experience if dining with children. The setting was unique and worth the stop. The food wasn't fantastic, but the atmosphere was interesting.
It was exciting to dine at the Pirate House, good food with very historical feel.
Our waiter was a sweetheart! The food was amazing! He made sure that everything was perfect. We had dinner in the middle of a thunderstorm and with the perfect lighting and the soft spoken waiter, it was wonderful!
When being seated, they sat us next to the window that faces west. The sun was extremely bright and hot. We asked to be moved but only was able to move one table over. They then sat another couple at the table and you could tell from their body language and how they kept looking away from the window that the seat placement was uncomfortable. There were also many flies in our area.
The food was good, portions were very big. Drinks were good as well.
It was just another restaurant in Savannah. Nothing spectacular stood out. . The service was good, but the way people recommended the restaurant- I was expecting something different.
The food was amazing!! All of the staff was wonderful! I would definitely recommend!
