    Great restaurant. Wonderful for adults and kids. They give kids these great menu's that become Pirate hats! Plus, they have a person dressed as a pirate who gives tours of the buildings, which is super interesting! I have to mention that the Low Country Egg Roll on the menu is 10/10. I mean fantastic!

    Excellent food! The She Celrab Soup was delicious with the right balance of seasoning, creaminess and crab in each spoonful. Great Southern buffet. Tasty Low Country burger (with oysters,) too. The downside is that in order to tour the house, it must be part of an evening ghost tour. Disappointing.

    We had a 9 PM reservation and they sat us in this room that was 10 x 10 with two other couples, and we could overhear their conversations from the beginning. No one else was in the restaurant, and when we asked to be moved somewhere else they stuck us right outside of the 10 x 10 room. They also started turning off the lights and cleaning before we even finished dinner and we had actually gotten there 15 minutes before our reservation. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The food was also subpar for the cost. Very disappointing.

    We went because of the history of Pirates House, but it was anticlimactic and disappointing. Not a lot of options, and the food was blah. No dessert menu either, but they did offer a few pie options - also blah and disappointing. The next day, we went to Boars Head on the Riverfront. Much better ambiance, food was excellent, lots to choose from for a range of tastes, desserts, too, and the view of the riverfront to boot - and our meal was less expensive at the Boars Head, too. Much better experience on the riverfront where lots is happening and lots more to see. Pirates House is fine to go into and look at for the history, there's a gift shop you can check out, but then leave and go eat at one of the other restaurants on the riverfront.

    Arrived at 4:00 PM, no wait time, great service from Bob, cute atmosphere. Food was excellent - had the She Crab Soup, House Salad, cornbread and marmalade was scrumptious, and the honey pecan fried chicken. Dessert was the pecan praline cheesecake and it was as good as a Cheesecake Factory one - sweet and creamy! The music playing was not enjoyable - loud and repetitive - and the bathrooms needed some cleaning- but I’d go back!

    Historical building with a sorta theme park ambience. Lots of very positive energy and folks enjoying themselves. The food is good. there is variety on the menu and the she-crab soup is delicious. I had the fried shrimp- they were plump and juicy and fried just right. Shrimp and grits also hit the mark.

    While I typically avoid any buffets I was inclined to try this lunch one. The food was fresh and delicious. Their chicken and fish was excellent as well as the sweet potatoes. There was a dessert choice included. The buffet was well tended and very clean. The lighting is dim and the building historic so it is visually interesting but doesn’t lend well to a sparkling clean feel. The service was good. I’d go back again!

    We dined at the Pirate's House on 2/3 around 4:30 as we were leaving Savannah to head home. We were seated alone in one of the many rooms. Because it was early it was pretty quiet. Our server was attentive and made good suggestions The food was enjoyable. I ordered the Pecan Fried Chicken - it was a huge half of a chicken so I had leftovers. We would definitely return when we visit again.
