Great food and atmosphere. I would recommend to everyone. Was pleasantly surprised at how they were able to accommodate big parties as quickly as they did. Very impressed.

The food was excellent, service fantastic. We were with 29 scouts, plus others in the room and they accommodated us with ease.

I want to preface this by saying that I grew up in Savannah and have never been to this place before. I had always wanted to try it. So, a certain amount of anticipation was already there. We checked online and the website said no...More

Stopped here because my teen son was interested in the history. The menu was boring and the house was interesting, but the prices do not substantiate the lack of ambiance. We settled on apps and a tour which was cool. I recommend a visit to...More

Our Girl Scout troop went 20 years ago. It was a complete blast. It has commercialized since then. The atmosphere has diminished a ton. We asked about dairy allergies and were assured that the items could be fried safely, then it was changed to broiled....More

Even though the atmosphere was really good, it was loud from neighboring guests (in the next room). The food left a bit to be desired. There were no vegetarian/vegan or gluten free meals offered. We had to ask about options and had they not (though...More

Where may I find the children's menu (picky eaters)? Also, can anyone give me a price and age range for children for evening dining? Thanks.

I would concur with earlier response. Came in a cab and was dropped off at door. It is an old building pieced together several structures, so there are some steps and unevenness.
Are reservations required?

We went for an early dinner - no reservations were required. Not sure if that is the same thing for later dinners or weekends.

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.
