    The fresh banana pina colada was the best ever. The orange marmalade is the only orange marmalade that I will eat. Hate it normally. Love it here. had shrimp and grits this time and it was delicious.

    Try the lunch buffet, great taste and decent value! The kids loved hearing the ghost stories and walking through the old bar discovering tunnels. Get there before noon to beat the crowd.

    Go for their lunch buffet. It's not a bad price and they have some of their best food on it. Definitely try the BBQ chicken and Mac & Cheese. If you're ordering off the menu, try the Pecan Chicken.

    We saw this on the tour. It's part of the tunnel system that was once used to smuggle rum. Be sure to take the kid friendly tour. Lots of fun.

    Such an outstanding piece of history. Those who are fans of Stevenson's Treasure Island, you have got to see this place. Captain Flint of the book is said to have died here, telling his stories.

    Very cool restaurant. Loved exploring the different rooms & the pirate gift shop. We had the soup, salad, & chicken salad plate and the pimento cheeseburger- both good. Service could have been better

    A great time in the bar area! Get the artillery punch, and if Travis is behind the bar, ask for the Pirate's Butthole shot! Get the pecan crusted fried chicken...soooooooo gooood!

    The food and atmosphere were incredible. Michael Otworth has been to Savannah several times and suggested we go there for dinner.......it was a short walk from our hotel. Service was spot on.

    The crab soup and shrimp basket is excellent! Great customer service from the moment we walked in! If you are able come when they first open, few people and more room to explore!

    Had the lunch buffet. Hands down, the best southern buffet I've had. The mash potatoes, mac n cheese, collards, chicken, greens, biscuits....all AMAZING!!!

    The fried oysters are excellent! Has a great atmosphere... especially if you like history. Definitely take a light jacket though, it's a little cool inside sometimes!

    Oldest bar in Georgia and a must while you're in Savannah. Bypass the wait and head over to the historic (and recently fully reno'd) bar space.

    Just had some drinks and a 'tour' of the place by a 'pirate' actor. Only stop at the bar to have drinks if you have LOTS of time on your hands. The tour is kid geared.

    Recognized for appealing Southern cuisine since 1753, it is an unforgettable dining experience. History tells that the Pirates' House was the tavern of choice by Capt. Flint of "Treasure Island."

    Buffet excellent, small but very delicous. Mac and cheese and eggs benedict are out of this world

    Pimento cheeseburger is cooked to your desired temperature (a rarity) and totally worthy skipping breakfast for. Eat in the bar and a enjoy the baudy jokes!

    The food was excellent. Service was prompt and courteous. We had had the grilled chicken. But I think one of the ghost gave me diarrhea. Very haunted.

    If you are planning an evening visit, make sure that Jack Sparrow (he’s young and short) is there. He’s really, really good and will give you an excellent time. READ REVIEW Read more

    Ask for a pirate's tour and learn a bit about Savannah's pirate history. Get a "Skullcrusher" to drink - it'll knock you on your ass!

    Check out the pirate tunnel. Yeah the legends are there for the tourist but it's still fun and they have calorie free desserts

    I could eat the squash casserole a day. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. Best I've ever had

    Neat piece of Savannah history. This is where unsuspecting young men were boozed up and kidnapped in the middle of night onto boats for indentured servitude.

    It is a Savannah institution. One of the oldest restaurants in the area and worth the time at least once.
