Food and service were great. We weren’t offered a “tour” but I understood because it was St. Patrick’s Day.
Everything was excellent, including where we were seated, all alone in a quiet room. However, about halfway through our meal, a large noisy group was seated at the next table making it impossible for our small family group to hear each other speak. Not the Pirates' House fault, but really cut our after-dinner time short.
Great food. Large portions. Server was very nice.
Dined with my husband. We were looking for a casual meal. I had the shrimp and pasta in a lemon butter sauce, my husband the fish (I think tilapia). Both of our meals were flavorless and barely warm. My shrimp was rubbery and the butter sauce tasted like vegetable oil. Dan’s fish was topped with crab. Not only was the fish luke warm, the crab topping was cold. Our server was present but disinterested. No personality.
This is a must avoid. If you’re looking for something easy on the budget and low key, order a fish sandwich from McDonalds.
Food not as good as prior 4 visits
The crab augratin had shells the pecan chicken was greasy and the food was not up to the usual
I love the selection of food available. Great ambience.
The catfish was authentic southern, but the coleslaw was the best, and most unique I have ever had.
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!! Wonderful tour of the whole place. Food was excellent even better drinks. And The gift shop was cute. Will definitely be back next time I’m in Savannah!
We had a great experience at The Pirates House. Our server, Margot, was excellent. The food was a delicious representation of Southern cooking, which was exactly what we Northeners were looking for.
Great choice, fun history tour with pirate!
Overall satisfied with our experience. We were there celebrating our son's birthday. Very disappointed in where we were seated- back room away from everything. We made reservations nearly a month ago and were expecting to be seated somewhere in one of the more decorated and historic rooms. Our waitress was wonderful. They brought our son a birthday dessert. Our waitress said that she tried to get the pirate to come by and say happy birthday and for a picture, but he never came and was preoccupied with tours.
My Parents used to bring my sister and me to the Pirates House to celebrate our Birthdays (we are 4 days apart). I have not been to this restaurant in over 20 years and the food was even better than I remembered. She crab soup was AWESOME!!! And, the service was great!! It really brought back a lot of happy memories. Trust me, you will enjoy every bite!
We were extremely disappointed with the overall experience. The food was over priced and over cooked. We were expecting more of a “pirate” experience. There were two ladies dressed in pirate gear and you had to tip them to get the history and tour of the restaurant.
Seated at the Open Talble reservation time. Very good service. Great authentic atmosphere. Good food. Good value. Unique place.
Great atmosphere. Excellent food. Reasonable pricing !
Visiting from out of town and saw a lot of good reviews for this place. I was not disappointed. The prices were a little high but after my plate was in front of me and I saw the amount of food I got I no longer cared! And the food was so good! The waiter was a little talkative but he was very nice and made sure our dinner went perfectly. Absolutely recommend this place.
Food was surprisingly good and reasonably priced. Room was quiet enough for conversation and waitress was attentive. We’ll be back.
This restaurant is a historic landmark in Savannah, rated well by travelers so we decided to give it a try. We were passing through Savannah on our way from Florida back to Virginia. The restaurant is family friendly so there were patrons of all ages with the accompanying noise. However, the service was excellent and the food was very good. The pirate theme is interesting and authentic and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Not recommended for someone looking for a quiet, intimate dinner with gourmet offerings; but, for visitors, families, and hungry locals, it appears to be a great choice.
Also our go to place when visiting Savannah! Always get the pecan crusted chicken, like dinner and dessert in one! Food, wait staff and atmosphere are amazing, try it you won’t be disappointed!
I had out of town guests and they picked this
Place for dinner
We went for a nice dinner before a concert and as we had never been there. We were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was very friendly and great!
My experience with this restaurant was extremely poor. The web site stated that it served a lunch buffet until 4:00 however when we arrived at 3:00 we were told that there was no longer a lunch buffet. The waitress spilled red wine all over a person in our party. They made no offer to clean or replace the clothing that they destroyed. This ruined our entire experience at the restaurant. We were told that the manager was unavailable to talk with us about the situation because he was in a meeting. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
As expected the restaurant was very busy, however since I had reservations (and showed up a bit early) I was seated right away. My server was prompt and pleasant, and my meal was brought out fairly quickly. I did have to wait a while for my dessert (they were out of my first choice, the Banana bread pudding). I ordered the "Black and White" Mousse. Although it was quite a large serving apparently the dark and white chocolate were combined for an all brown colored mousse. That was a little disappointing especially after having to wait so long. Overall the meal was ok and the service was adequate.
The fried green tomatoes were not only cold but really greasy and not good at all. In general the food was mediocre and a big disappointment.
Drink menu was good.
The waitress seemed more focused on telling us her life story than anything interesting about the historic building.
We came from Idaho and discovered this restaurant on a tour. We loved this restaurant for the atmosphere and exceptional wait staff. We both ordered the pecan chicken and I thought it was cooked and plated very well. This was the best fried chicken I have ever had. Light, crispy, juicy and so much flavor! I will never eat fried chicken again without comparing to this Pirates House offering. We were expecting to get only a breast, and were surprised to also get a wing,thigh and drumstick on the plate. The mashed yams and green beans were also delicious. Comfort food at its finest!
The food was surprisingly upscale and they had a separate gluten free menu. They sat us in a side room with other couples, so it was actually romantic and quiet. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The overall experience was wonderful!
We had a great waitress. The staff was good from the second we walked in. I would highly recommend the restaurant. I had a neck injury from a car accident and our waitress couldn’t have been kinder bringing me inc, etc.
it was a fun dinner
Good food, great service
We loved our time at the Pirate’s House!! Both kids and adults enjoyed it; especially the tour! Portions were huge; could definitely share. Try the fried green tomatoes!
I don't usually give negative reviews. This place has so much potential. Great city. Great location. Good menu. Good service. But the constant distraction of tour groups through the restaurant was a mood killer. That combined with being seated in a room with tables that had really loud kids also lowered the experience. They have enough dinning rooms that they could isolate people who would like a little more intimate experience. As I said, this place has so much potential.
Definitely worth the trip! We were a large party of 8 and were accommodated wonderfully. We had requested the Herb House, and were excited when we were seated there. The food was delicious and the service impeccable - a definite recommendation for others!
Family restaurant with lots of kids, not what we wanted. Food was good service a little slow with big family parties.
Disappointing. For the price, I expected the food to be well prepared. The sautéed vegetables were cold and oily as were the French fries. The cornbread fell apart when we tried to put a little butter on it. Nothing like the old Pirates House of 25 years ago.
Great food, gluten free choices. Definitely request a pirate tour.
Excellent southern seafood fried and lightly battered. Pirate House surrounded with history great dining experience
The food was amazing!
Great Server, Terry. Food was fabulous......atmosphere was wonderful
Our meal was outstanding! We really enjoyed the she crab soup and the shrimp!! We also got to meet a lady pirate who told bad jokes...our day was complete. We took home key lime pie for a later dessert. Too bad we are from PA, but we'll be back someday!
Food was great..
Service was good, food was fabulous, everyone was very friendly and courteous. Meal was amazing
