Savannah Restaurants

Pirates' House

Updated 11/12/2012

Fodor's Review

As much an attraction on the tourist route as a restaurant, this 1753 house is a Savannah landmark, and many Savannah tours include the lunch buffet here. The building is steeped in history, including scary tales of trap doors and secret passages leading down to the waterfront that were used to take inebriated patrons out to understaffed boats (they'd wake up at sea and be given the choice between working on the boat or swimming several miles back to shore!). Its popularity with tour groups has given it a reputation as a tourist trap, but the food is pretty good, with plenty of kid-pleasing choices. The lunch buffet has all the Southern standards: chicken, mashed potatoes, veggies, etc. Adults may want to choose from the à la carte menu, which is generally better than the buffet. The baby back ribs and the honey pecan chicken are highlights. There's no buffet for dinner, but the dessert menu is worth sticking around for.
