The Pirates' House + Giveaway Winners!

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Imagine my delight when we happened upon this incredible old building!! Located in downtown Savannah, The Pirates' House is a historic restaurant and tavern established in 1753. (Had we not just eaten a yummy lunch at Paula Deen's restaurant, you can bet I would have stepped inside for a bite!) The historic building is located a block from the Savannah River and was built as an inn for visiting seamen. According to their website, the Inn became "a rendezvous of blood-thirsty pirates and sailors from the Seven Seas. Here seamen drank their fiery grog and discoursed, sailor fashion, on their adventures from Singapore to Shanghai and from San Francisco to Port Said." So cool! Has anyone ever dined here?? Their menu looks just as delicious as those turquoise shutters!!


I know you're all dying to know the lucky winners of the LoveFeast Table giveaway!

We used to go there when I was growing up...I'm sure the food was good but my greatest memory of the place was that you used to be able to go into the tunnels that run below it. Beautiful pics!

Wow, Nancy that's so cool! What a great memory!

Nicole said...

Haint blue is absolutely one of my favorite colors! Being from Savannah, I'm determined to mix it into my current decor.

Teresa said...

Oh my goodness I love those shutters....I am planning to paint mine a turquoise one of these days and this has just confirmed how beautiful they will be.....Thanks for sharing the beauty and if I ever make it back to Savannah I will surely check this out...

Looking forward to pics from Tybee Island...Love that place as well

Wow, what an utterly charming place! If those walls could only talk? I bet they'd have some tales to tell (especially because of the red lights outside the building! *wink!* I can't be the only one that noticed that, can I?).

Can't wait to see your Tybee Island pics, bet they are wonderful!

We've been a couple of times over the last few years. They take you on a quick tour & give the history of each room ( no tunnels). Then they had a few 'pirates' as well. Great for families!

There is something so appealing about weather beaten wood and aqua/turquoise that I just love. I adore Savannah -- and haven't been in way too long. Thanks for sharing! Amal

Again, I live in Savannah and love it! We've been to the Pirates House many times for dinner. My kids love it! The absolutely BEST shrimp and grits! I have to be honest... I haven never noticed the fabulous color of the shutters. Shame on me!

We passed this place on one of those trolley tours (yeah, we're THOSE people), and the people who got on said they'd just eaten there and hated it! I was so bummed because it looked so awesome from the outside! I think they were haters ... I'm totally trying it next time I'm in Savannah.
Congratulations to the LoveFeast Table giveaway winners! I LOVE my pumpkins from last year's giveaway. :)

What a beautiful restaurant! And such a cool story too.

after painting so many pieces in shades of Turquoise..you would have to look at my blog...and go back to previous months..but I really fell in love with the color..and said if I could I would have a room of Turq...well my hubby is not a fan...so alas...I found away, I painted my grand daughters room and it is spot on the color of those shuttes, just does not show as well in my pics..and a bed in shades of Turq, and now a wardrobe in Turq and accessories, I love this color

So funny, I went there last year! It's DELICIOUS. Here's my post (with a mini overview of my trip): http://www.adoseofthedelightful.com/blog/2011/12/a-brief-visit-to-savannah.html

They have a drink there called Chatham Artillery Punch, which legend has it took down many a sailor. The recipe is actually printed on their menus!

We just returned from a trip to Tybee Island and ate at the Pirate House while on a day trip to Savannah. I have to say the food was great! I did not expect much, thinking it is a tourist trap, but I was pleasantly surprised! Hope you get to stop by there again! By the way, we loved Tybee, stayed with Mermaid Cottages in a Jane Coslick designed cottage!!! Loved it!!!
