The Pirate House, Savannah, Georgia Review

 

 Arrggg, matey! What be yer dining pleasure this fine evening? Should you be one of the fans of the pirate option on the language choices for Facebook, or if pirates are just generally your thing, you absolutely must make a valiant effort to eat at The Pirate House in Savannah, Georgia! From the road, or one of the many Savannah trolley tours, you would find it difficult to miss this historical bar and restaurant with it’s weathered wooden sign beckoning from the doorpost through which have passed many a mate with many a tall tale ne’er to be told, though many were conjoured and passed as honest as gold.

 Once inside those hallowed doors, you are immediately taken by the way it has been expertly maintained to keep with the traditional looks of taverns of the eighteenth century when the establishment came into existence. Be forewarned, however, that the wood plank floors have been polished to a high shine and are accordingly slippery. My cute wedge heels were no match. Never ye worry yer poor heart for had I not been in the company of two very fine, upstanding gentlemen, the characters that are otherwise known as the crew, though decked in whimsical pirate adornment, are ever present and quite a bit more honorable than their namesakes. Once the danger of falling on one’s hind quarters has passed, be sure to examine every inch of the historically accurate establishment. There are fifteen intimate dining quarters throughout and wonderfully preserved relics everywhere in between, each with a detailed description of how it came to be. That includes the copper sinks in the powder rooms. No detail was left untouched.

 The food was infinitely better than what you would have found in those old galleys of yore. There was certainly no doubt that them there old pirates certainly never dined as generously as we did. The liquor was wet and cold the dishes were hot and delectable and there was nothing left to be desired. The fee for this fortuitous adventure was moderate and worth every weathered tabloon. You will find plenty of booty in the gift shop for every member of the family. There should be no reason to go away empty handed or anything but light-hearted, if not full-bellied! I highly recommend one of Savannah’s most popular attractions, local and tourist alike. So much so that I plan on taking every out-of-state visitor we get down there to experience it!
