The Pirates House outside photoPart of the fun of traveling to different cities is experiencing the local cuisine. I recently hosted an event, Race & Relax on the Road, for a group of ladies who ran in the Rock n Roll Savannah Marathon and Half Marathon and held the celebration lunch at The Pirate House in Historic Savannah.  A charming eatery conveniently nestled off of Bay Street, The Pirate House was a great find for our private party offering savory southern selections, a fun pirate-themed atmosphere, and intimacy for our private party – they boast 15 dining rooms.

The Food
We had 17 ladies in our party and they were all pleased with the selections. Our personalized catered menu included Catfish ‘N Grits, Chicken Gumbo, Baked Ziti Pasta, Salmon Cakes, and the 1776 Burger. The Pirate House is also known for their Southern Luncheon Buffet reasonable priced at $13.95. The buffet offers something for everyone and is complete with all the traditional southern fixin’s.  We were celebrating and enjoyed some of their fun specialty drinks including the Pirate’s Margarita and Chatham Artillery Punch, a drink they dubbed Savannah’s Secret Weapon.

Everyone we encountered at The Pirate House, including a pirate who came to greet us in full garb, offered great service. They were flexible with menu changes and quick serving our drinks and meals. Watching them handle a group our size left me confident that this is a great place to bring my family next time we are in Savannah. While I was there I saw many groups with kids enjoy the restaurant.  My kids would love to chat with a “real” pirate – just like I did.

Lunch sandwiches and seafood baskets range from $7.25 – $12.50; Dinner entrees $19.95 – $25.95.
