As one of the oldest structures in the city, this restaurant is the best example of the colonial era. To add intregue, there is a rum cellar that legend claims was connected to the docks and hapless individuals had been shanghaied through the tunnels. Besides...More

Had dinner there and the food was very good, but not warm enough. Service was quite bad in the bar - restaurant was full and very noisy! So an ok night, but not as good as expected.

We enjoyed our visit at this historic place but were not too impressed with the food or the service. The wait person was not very attentive and the food, while rated highly by others, was unimpressive. I must say the She Crab soup was outstanding...More

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.
