This unique restaurant is housed in a former 1733 Seaman’s Inn. They make the best She Crab Soup! Excellent service and great food all housed in small history packed rooms. Make sure you see the secret stairs and tunnel.

Had a very attentive and friendly server who gave us a quick run down on the history of the building when we first sat down. The pecan fried chicken with honey glaze was delicious...and a HUGE portion! Shrimp and grits were good but not great!...More

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.

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.
