Cool old building, very nice and sassy waitress. The fried green tomatoes with fresh mozzarella and salad was DELICIOUS. The She Crab soup was perfect. My mouth is watering just thinking about them! Friends had the gumbo and enjoyed it.

We stopped in for a possible diner and drinks, as well as a tour. The bartender didn't know how to make an Old Fashioned! There was one full cherry at the bottom of the glass and it tasted like straight whiskey. There should be 2-3...More

Great kid friendly restaurant. The kids menu turns into pirate hat & coins which kept them entertained. Definitely make a reservation as it gets busy. Cool old building, supposedly haunted. Host stand a little unfriendly & didn’t seat us until our exact reservation time. Our...More

It wasn’t bad and it wasn’t great. It’s a nice place to go for the history of the building. Food was average. Server was good.

They had kids “cocktails” on the menu for sure but I didn’t see any glass boots.

I assume they can accommodate you as the Staff was more than Reasonable.

They do have a set menu and the pecan fried chicken is on it. Not sure if they change it periodically but they do list it as one of their signature dishes so I doubt it would be omitted even if other menu items change.

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.
