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.

The food was excellent as always. I have always enjoyed the buffet, but having eaten it just a day after eating the buffet at Lady and Sons, I was even more impressed. I would say that their southern buffet is one of the best tasting I have ever had, and it is at least as good as Lady and Sons if not better. The service is always top notch, and the staff have accommodated my special requests every time I have dined her for over a decade now.

Unique historic location that is a tourist magnet. Our server was just okay, and our food and cocktails were the worst we had in three days in Savannah. The free 10 minute tour at the end was too crowded but still very enjoyable.

Took an out of town friend to the Pirate's House as he likes fried chicken. He was not disappointed. Said the pecan crusted chicken was the best he's had in a long time. The shrimp and grits was also very good. Considering the number of people there, our service was outstanding. Definitely worth a visit.

We were seated at our luncheon reservation time and had three small children in our party of 8. The buffet for children was perfect plus two adults also enjoyed the buffet. Our service was excellent and the pirate hat placemats were great fun for the children. Food was flavorful, had a 'Southern' theme and quickly delivered. Fried chicken, biscuits and cornbread were awesome. Had a pirate encounter while there... We will go back the next time we visit.

This was our third time at The Pirate's House and it was as good as ever. This is not a romantic or quiet place but just fun in historic Savannah. The food is excellent but especially so since it is a tourist destination. The ambiance is pirate themed and so, would definitely appeal to families with children. As the volume is "energetic" parents would not feel bad if their children were a little loud. The staff is very good and engaging. Love it and will definitely go back again and again.

I loved how the staff made you feel at home. Right off the bat they told me they have plenty of food. I ordered the Calamari which was the best I ever had. The she crab soup was absolutely amazing. There famous honey pecan fried chicken was also amazing. I couldn't even finish the chicken because you get four big pieces. I will definitely recommend this place

Very good! We sat in the back room with 3 tables. Only complaint is felt very distant from the environment

Fried chicken was spectacular. Service was excellent and was seated as soon as we walked in. Missed out of some of the stories about the locations history. There is always a next time.

Service was great but the food was a little overdone my broccoli was well over cooked and my friend dip was very little and cold. Another friend of mine her onion rings look like they would dip and just regular flour and was under done and cold as well my sisters carbonara the shrimp was mushy and overdone. But our waiter Terry was very nice and attentive he listened to our concerns and got some of them corrected as much as he could. And I don't think big group should go unless there is a private room only because I had a party of 12 we sat in one of the back rooms and yet a couple with sat next to us not sure if they was wanting a intimate dinner but we were not loud we weren't rude and yet she complained about us. Besides the restaurant is a great restaurant have been there numerous times before and had wonderful food and a great time.

It was great being seated as soon as we arrived. when we sat at the table there were 4 bread plates. 2 had napkins, 2 did not. the 2 without napkins had crumbs on the plates. the hostess told us that it was water from where the plates had been washed. we actually picked the plates up and dumped the crumbs on the table. also, there was butter and bread crumbs on the bench seat and on the table. the hostess took the plates, but we had to ask her 2 times to please wipe the table and seats for us. she finally got a man to come and wipe the tables for us. she did not have the best attitude. when our waitress came, she was wonderful and the meal was great.

The Pirate House is a definite must go if you are a visitor in Savannah. My husband and I were here for the weekend and although it is “touristy” it is very fun and authentic. The food was also very delicious. We had the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer and they were full of flavor. The fried chicken was absolutely delicious. Perfectly seasoned and cooked and the portion was huge. I wish I knew that a tour of the restaurant was an option!

We always love dining at the Pirate's House. I have been going there for over 35 years. The bar staff and our server, Adia, took great care of us tonight. Our she crab soup and low country spring roll appetizers were good. Our seafood and pork chops entrees were generous portions and everything tasted wonderful!

We specified it was our sons 10th birthday on our reservation. We were so excited to try this historic restaurant. We were very underwhelmed by the entire staff. They were not very friendly. We had to remind our waiter of his birthday and then he orders dessert and waiter says to him you get a special dessert do you want that too. Way to ruin the surprise. There was a tour you could take after your meal with a “pirate” but it was definitely lacking based on reviews and what we were expecting. Over priced for food and not even exciting experience.

I had she soup & fruit salad & was very sick all night! We also had a few pieces of calamari @ the bar, no alcohol....my husband also had the soup & shrimp & grits & was also sick...we were thrown into a busy kid room not worthy of a reservation! We had not been here since 1970 when we stationed @ HAAF & rented a home in Savannah & I worked for a law firm...used to eat there often & food was good;never got sick. The Foley’s
