Why Eat at the Pirates’ House?

When I began researching what to do in Savannah, I stumbled across a great little restaurant–The Pirates’ House.  We love to try unusual dining opportunities, and we’re not alone!  One of my favorite blogs, Minivan Adventures, shares my love of trying out fun places to eat.  Anyway, as soon as I saw pictures of this place, I knew we had to try it!

Eating Lunch at the Pirates’ House

As soon as we pulled into town, we headed straight for the restaurant.  Time for lunch!

We decided to have lunch here since it’s not as expensive as dinner.  The prices for lunch were really reasonable; they were similar to casual chain table service places.  When we arrived, we were told we had about a 15 minute wait, so we headed upstairs to the gift shop where we saw this guy:

We bought a magnet, and soon our table was ready!

Guests to the Pirates’ House are seated in various rooms in the building.  This place is billed as the oldest house in Savannah.  Apparently, the place started out as an inn and tavern, but soon pirates were frequenting the establishment.  Supposedly, a tunnel connected the inn and tavern to the river where unsuspecting drunkards were carried off to their new life as crew members of a ship.  Oh, and the house is haunted.

After we were seated, the server brought our menus.  The children’s menu had punch-out pirate features that Jeff quickly put to good use.

We came here mostly for the experience, but the food was really good.  I had hand-dipped shrimp.  My plain-eating family had hand-dipped chicken strips, but I will excuse their choices this time because their plates looked absolutely wonderful!  The meal also included dessert.  Of course, I had to have some good ole Southern pecan pie. Yum!

Pirate Tour

We’d heard that a pirate would give you a tour of the restaurant if you asked, so after lunch, we tracked down our pirate.  She was happy to show us around.

She took her time with us and showed us everything.

I really loved coming here.  This is the perfect place for families to have a unique dining experience, and if you’re on a budget, lunchtime is a great time to visit.  If you’re heading to Savannah, make time for The Pirates’ House!
