The entire family is sure to enjoy Savannah's most intriguing & historic restaurant. At the Pirates' House, our most precious treasure is the food. Situated in Trustees Garden, merely a scant block from the Savannah River, the Famous Pirates' House is the most historic spot in Georgia. The Herb House, erected in 1734, located inside the Pirates' House, is said to be the oldest house in Georgia. The Pirates' House first opened in 1753 as an inn for seafarers and fast became a meeting point for blood-thirsty pirates & sailors. Enthusiastically recommended by AAA, Food & Wine and Redbook.

You might say touristy, but the food is excellent and it is a Savannah must.

The house is really cool! And the tour was neat. Definitely ask to do that.

The food was also very good! But as a whole the restaurant is nicer dining than you’d expect upon walking in. Our service was ok, our waitress was busy, stressed, and came across a bit unfriendly. Unfortunate given the fact that it was our first and only time there.

I had been to the Pirates House before and enjoyed the crab cakes. They were delicious. I was very disappointed in the crab augratin. It was terrible. Also we had to endure very loud customers at another table who had enjoyed too much alcohol. My family was disappointed overall with the experience.

Food was just ok, but served so quickly it had to all be pre-made and the server rushed us through - whole meal took 20 minutes including dessert. Free tour of the restaurant was the best part.

The crew were really accommodating in answering questions about the house’s history. They even have a staff dressed as a pirate to do house tours! And their fried chicken hits the mark, it was really good.

A friend recommended we give it a try. We were glad we did. It is a unique building retaining its character from centuries ago. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The scallops were the best thing I ate on a two week vacation. My wife loved the crab cake. We will stop in again.

When I reserved I gave special instructions, wheelchair access, a high chair for a toddler not much to ask for. The waitress not only once but various times bumped hardly in my wife’s wheelchair. It was our first and sadly last visit. I called and spoke with the manager Mr. Matt said he was going to take care of it but never called back. The waitress knew it was our first time instead of making the best he made the worst by rushing and poorly attentive. The kids did not enjoy the buffet and wanted something else from the menu he just look at their plates said well they enjoy it.
So rude of him, we are going to pay not him. It was a special occasion turn to be extremely sad.

Our server was horrible. We didn’t have drinks for over ten minutes (refills), so I had to go find another server and ask for drinks as I couldn’t find our server. Five minutes after that our server came back. It is took him another ten minutes to give me my credit card back after he took bill. Unacceptable. I also don’t think this restaurant is worth the hype. I won’t go back and wouldn’t suggest it.

Went with a group of 8. While most of the meals at the table were good, I was very disappointed in my fish. Seemed to be swimming in oil and the fries were not much better. Waiter forgot my second glass of wine. And we were grossly overcharged for our meal, although didn't realize it until we had left the city.

We are traveling, and just in Savannah for the night. The history of The Pirates House made it fun! And the food was fantastic! It is at the top of my list for my most memorable, kid-friendly, dining experiences. We will definitely come back he next time we are in Savannah!

We were new to this restaurant in Savannah. The She Crab Soup was too salty, Tilapia was bland, but the crab meet was tasty along with the Fried Green tomatoes. The pimento cheese with Gouda was a hit.

Food was good. Ive had several good experiences there. This time I wanted the jumbalaya, but they serve it on linguini (huh?) and didn't even have white rice (really?). The salmon was nicely done, however. Only problem was the waitress really rushed us; we kept saying we were in no hurry, it was only 6pm, but she repeatedly seemed to want to move us on.

Delicious food, large selection of drinks. Our particular server wasn’t very knowledgeable about the menu, but the hostess was great. We’ve been here several times during stopovers in Savannah and have always enjoyed it. The kids love that they can make the pirate costume out of the kids menu. We’ll be back!

Well overall our experience was good. We waiting about 10 mins before our waiter spoke to us. Our reservation was at 8:45 got there about 8:35 and they sat us. Server explained he didn’t know that we were there, but his charm balanced the wait. Food was okay. It’s more about doing something interesting than going to dinner. Fun, touristy, not worth the price.

Atmosphere was noisy. Food was just ok. Took a long time arriving. People who were seated and ordered after us got their meals before us.
The place is touted as a spot with some historical significance but little was explained about that. The girl dressed up as a pirate gave a half hearted "welcome" and didn't explain any thing. My kids were disappointed.

Got sat in a small room with three tables. Kids were crawling on the floor, two women were screaming at each other. Took 15 minutes before our waitress came. Finally got waters and ordered drinks. Drinks never came. We left and went to eat on River Street. Very disappointed.

Definitely get a reservation! Lunch on a Thursday was completely packed, on a 2 hour wait. We were seated right at our reservation time for 8 people. Had a good variety of food for everyone. Waitress was extremely helpful and refilled drinks without asking. The restaurant had tours available too, but we didn't have time to take it. I would definitely recommend.

Great service. Wonderful food. Very fun place to eat. Only complaint was tour groups crowding around our table while trying to eat. Need to have smaller tour groups or don't do tours during peak dining times if all dining areas need to be utilized.

We had a great time while in town visiting family. Our waiter (Keith) was wonderful. Charming and attentive! We enjoyed the lore of the restaurant and took some time to look around. My son was upset, we got so caught up looking around that we left his souvenir skull mug. I’ve promised him another lunch next time we’re in town!
