We stopped for lunch at The Pirates House during our Old Town Trolley Tour. The staff was very friendly and the strolling pirate was very engaging and entertaining. Food was very good.

In a sea of chain restaurants with frozen and microwaved food, it's such a pleasure to eat real, fresh food for a change! The Pirate's House has excellent seafood options with a stellar atmosphere. Plus, who doesn't love pirates?

I've never had a bad meal here. The crab cake with its lemony sauce and huge chunks of crab is impeccable. The honey pecan chicken is a masterpiece. If you can only make one trip to Savannah, plan to enjoy one meal here.

Food was so good. I had the crab Au gratin and it was so good I dreamt about it. The atmosphere was fun and interesting. My daughter has the crab cake and scewered shrimp. The shrimp were good but would have been better if they were warm. All in all my daughter, grandchildren and I had a fantastic meal and... More

My wife and I ate here last night. (We ate at one of the booths in the bar area -same menu) I had the seafood medley and my wife had shrimp and linguine. Both were delicious. It's been a long time since I've had multiple seafood items all cooked perfectly. Recommend.

He didn't seem very interested in answering any questions about the food or the Rum tasting flight... his standard answer was that it was "self-explanatory". Call me crazy, but if that were true, I would not have asked for clarification in the first place.

Family of 4, really enjoyed the atmosphere. Pirates will visit you during dinner. Portions are huge, so come hungry.

This was the only tavern in town, so many stories were told. This was were people were shanghi to serve in ships after a night of drinking and smuggled thru the underground tunnels to the ships. Same tunnels were alcohol was smuggled into the city.

Another tourist spot but the historical aspect seemed interesting so as usual we went with there with mixed expectations. The service was excellent. The restaurant itself was quaint in a historical building. In general we had a very pleasant dinner topping it off with the best pecan pie I've had in awhile.

The first time we ate here, we took our grandchildren for the Sunday brunch. It was buffet style, not great, but not really bad. We returned a second time, again with our grandchildren. The food was so terrible, we will not go there again. First off, the salads were pretty good, as were the biscuits and cornbread. The entres were... More

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.
