We went here on the last day of our trip. The buffet options were typical southern food; Mac n cheese/candied sweet yams/greens/meatloaf/etc. The salad I had was mixed greens. The crab melt seemed to be the group choice and it was good but a lot for a hot day. The Chatham artillery drink actually seemed a bit bland for how... More

We went to the Pirates house our last evening in Savannah. Based on pretty good reviews I thought it would be a fun place to bring my daughter and her friend. The good: Cool historic building in historic area of Savannah. I wish they kept the whole building rustic/historic.. some area's have a 70's vibe ( and I don't mean... More

The building itself is very unique. There is so much history involved in the renovation/expansion of the restaurant. My favorite part, the house tour prior to dinner!

There is no restaurant as unique in all of Savannah! This building itself is old, old, old and drenched in history....pirates, ghosts.... The food is fantastic and the entire staff is wonderful! We would like to give special recognition to our server, Ally, who was outstanding. They even have an awesome gift shop upstairs with souvenirs for everyone - little... More

My friend had the she crab soup and she raved about it. I had chicken tenders - not usually something to rave about but they were juicy and so crunchy. Maybe the best chicken I have had in a restaurant. Nice variety of food selections. Great for families and lots of history!

This place is a definite must when you visit Savannah. First of all, it is an authentic "pirates house". There is a lot of history here and you feel it when you walk through the door. Emily was our server and she was on point. The service was wonderful. The food was delicious and there are several options, depending upon... More

The place was nest inside and the tables were cool. I had the prime rib dinner. The waiter looked at me like I was crazy for wanting sour cream and butter on my baked potato. He had to go find some he said. Then after 10 mins he finally came back. He said it was difficult. I felt bad for... More

We visited PH during our visit to Savannah, on the recommendation of the tour guide during one of our bus rides and we weren't disappointed. The food and service were both great! Parking wasn't quick. There seemed to have been another event going on in an adjoining space behind the restaurant, so the lot and the street parking were full,... More

This is the oldest spot in town and was worth the visit. Food and selection was very good. Sort of felt rushed through dinner though. Was convenient to our hotel so we decided to try it. We would go back again - they had a great selection of rums!

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.
