The Much Ballyhooed Pirates House Apr 05, 2012
When a colleague at work learned I was to visit Savannah, she told me that I must visit the Pirates' House restaurant. It seemed promising, located as it is in one of the oldest buildings in the city.

We elected to have a late lunch at the Pirates' House after visiting Wormsloe Plantation and Bonaventure Cemetery in the morning. Even at 2:00 p.m. there was a large crowd waiting. It certainly is popular! Plan to allow extra time if you come. We sat at the bar in order to save time.

Outside, the Herb House, dating from 1753, can be discerned, though there have been many additions over the years to make the present restaurant. Inside, the ambiance reminded me of Columbia Harbor House at Disney World. Wandering pirates come up to you at your table and engage in banter. There is a lot of pirate bric-a-brac about. Supposedly, the establishment was once a tavern from which patrons were Shanghaied. I really did not see the evidence. Upstairs is a gift shop including an audio-anamatronic Long John Sliver who will tell pirate tales on demand.

Oh, yes, the food. I ordered a cup of She Crab Soup and a Fried Green Tomato BLT Salad. It was good, but nothing particularly special.

I guess I don't get the Pirates' House as many others apparently do. It did not live up to all the hoo-hah it receives. It would be a good place to take children. I'm glad i could tell my coworker I went. But, on another trip, I'd want to try another of Savannah's many restaurants.
