    The ambiance was fun and charming. The waitress was just ok. We ordered the “famous” chicken dinner with the pecan sauce on the side and substituted regular mashed potatoes instead of the sweet potatoes. The salad was fabulous! The meal came: chicken drenched in pecan sauce and received sweet potatoes with ice cold mixed vegetables. So disappointed…

    3 of us had the lunch buffet. I don’t remember the gentleman who waited on us at the booth next to the buffet. Service by everyone was great. I love the food here it has a nice variety and well priced at 18.95 per adult. My only complaint is the cart of plates and food to restock and the refilling process of the clean plates is soooo shockingly loud. Parking in the lot in back was easy and cute little giftshop upstairs although too pricey. I won’t pay 36-38 dollars for a t-shirt.

    It is a good tourist destination if you have never been here. Good service, the She Crab soup and Crème Brûlée were excellent. The crab cake and shrimp was average and unfortunately, the veg was cold. The ocean chicken was good but a bit overcooked. Many other superior restaurants in Savannah, but it’s worth going for the history, once.

    We are never disappointed by The Pirates' House. The food is delicious, and the service is outstanding. Our servers are always very attentive and prompt with any needs. The mixed drinks are well made (and strong)! The atmosphere is family-friendly, but there is no room for strollers at the table. And don't miss the gift shop upstairs!

    Great restaurant. Wonderful for adults and kids. They give kids these great menu's that become Pirate hats! Plus, they have a person dressed as a pirate who gives tours of the buildings, which is super interesting! I have to mention that the Low Country Egg Roll on the menu is 10/10. I mean fantastic!

    Excellent food! The She Celrab Soup was delicious with the right balance of seasoning, creaminess and crab in each spoonful. Great Southern buffet. Tasty Low Country burger (with oysters,) too. The downside is that in order to tour the house, it must be part of an evening ghost tour. Disappointing.

    We had a 9 PM reservation and they sat us in this room that was 10 x 10 with two other couples, and we could overhear their conversations from the beginning. No one else was in the restaurant, and when we asked to be moved somewhere else they stuck us right outside of the 10 x 10 room. They also started turning off the lights and cleaning before we even finished dinner and we had actually gotten there 15 minutes before our reservation. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The food was also subpar for the cost. Very disappointing.

    We went because of the history of Pirates House, but it was anticlimactic and disappointing. Not a lot of options, and the food was blah. No dessert menu either, but they did offer a few pie options - also blah and disappointing. The next day, we went to Boars Head on the Riverfront. Much better ambiance, food was excellent, lots to choose from for a range of tastes, desserts, too, and the view of the riverfront to boot - and our meal was less expensive at the Boars Head, too. Much better experience on the riverfront where lots is happening and lots more to see. Pirates House is fine to go into and look at for the history, there's a gift shop you can check out, but then leave and go eat at one of the other restaurants on the riverfront.

    Arrived at 4:00 PM, no wait time, great service from Bob, cute atmosphere. Food was excellent - had the She Crab Soup, House Salad, cornbread and marmalade was scrumptious, and the honey pecan fried chicken. Dessert was the pecan praline cheesecake and it was as good as a Cheesecake Factory one - sweet and creamy! The music playing was not enjoyable - loud and repetitive - and the bathrooms needed some cleaning- but I’d go back!

    Historical building with a sorta theme park ambience. Lots of very positive energy and folks enjoying themselves. The food is good. there is variety on the menu and the she-crab soup is delicious. I had the fried shrimp- they were plump and juicy and fried just right. Shrimp and grits also hit the mark.
