We ate their while waiting for a tour. Food was good, got seafood and it was a little bland to me. Know resturants tend to go that way so it's not to seasoned for others. Lots of history there.

Made reservations for 6:15pm on a Wednesday night, and it was not crowded at all. Reservations were definitely not necessary (at that time), as there was plenty of open tables and we were seated right away. Our food came out super fast; we hadn't even finished our free bread yet. The waiter was very nice, the service was great, and... More

On the trolley tour stop. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The buffet was ok. The pirate that visited our table told us the history of the restaurant and did a little tour.

This restaurant is one located in the city of Savannah where its structure is original and very old, but the most important thing is the food that is exquisite. The service is very good but you must go hungry since the portions are large. I recommend it and they will enjoy it

The Pirates House is a must if you're visiting Savannah. Not only is it an amazing place with tons of history and several documented ghostly inhabitants, the food is excellent. I had the pork chops, my husband had the crab augratin, both were delicious. They say the pecan fried chicken is their most popular dish. The staff is excellent and... More

The pirates add a great touch. If you come to Savannah you have to come here and eat. This is a must do. Great... More

Great location and parking. It was the first restaurant we came to from our hotel so we just stopped in and luckily there was a table by the bar. The food was great. We went for seafood but the mashed potatoes happened to be my favorite.

We liked it, had a good time there. what we ordered was great. We regret having not gotten the signature pecan fried chicken, next time maybe, Our server was very good. Pirate's House is only about a block from the Marriott where we stayed.

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.
