We were told by several people in Savannah that the Pink House was a good place to dine. The food was wonderful-try the sweet potato, collard greens and their signature dish, the apricot glazed flounder. The biscuits are also delicious. Wait staff very knowledgable about menu. The downstairs piano lounge is nice for a casual meal or drinks. Pink House is a definite must while in Savannah.

We were welcomed in by several hosts/hostesses at the Pink House who made us feel like honored guests though we felt we were dressed too casually for the place (from sightseeing all day) and almost didn't come in. But they encouraged us to stay. They only had ONE table open when we came and we were the blessed ones to get it.

Although they were busy - every table filled - we had excellent service and the food came out in a very timely fashion for them having that many diners at the time.

The biscuits - OH MY. So good. The butter is even amazing in and of itself .

I am originally from Baltimore and particular about how my seafood is prepared - particularly crab soup or crabcakes. I was hoping the seafood would be up to standard and let me tell you the she crab soup was some of the best I've EVER had in my life! The crabcakes? Amazing. Those who were with me on this evening had the pork chops, fried green tomatoes, mac & cheese, cheese grits, and ALL of it was simply amazing.

The atmosphere is just beautiful and the lady who comes and sings at each table is just delightful.

A friend had recommended The Old Pink House to us, having eaten there a month earlier and so we decided to try it upon our visit. We're so glad we did.

Do yourself a favor and dine there on your next visit to Savannah.

My first trip to Savannah and my birthday. I wanted to have my first dinner in Savannah at The Lady and Sons but when I got there they said they couldn't serve anymore that day at 5 p.m. already at capacity. Too commercialize for a buffet dinner place.So I chose the Pink House restaurant because I read good reviews online. Turned out to be a much better place after all I did not have a reservation so the hostess tried to seat me downstairs in the basement. I said no I want to go back to the front desk and make a reservation . So then I was seated in the restaurant. Nice after that everything went very well my husband and I had a lovely meal very tasty and everybody in the place was so friendly. The lady who sings there even sang Happy Birthday to me.

Pros: Friendly atmosphere, southern hospitality

Cons: The first hostess tried to seat us in basement bar. No Way

The Pink House is a pretty cool place. Upstairs you will find fine dining. Downstairs you find a bar and a more casual dining experience. They serve the same menu in both places, so it is more about what you looking for at the time. This can serve as a place for a nice romantic dinner or a great place to hang out. The food and the service are fantastic! Plus, the building has history!

I have lived in Savannah for 2 years now. I eat out often, and try a variety of restaurants. For some reason, I managed to over look the Pink House; even after hearing about the great food.

My boyfriend made the reservation for our anniversary dinner. When he called, he let them know it was a special occasion and that we would like a nice quiet table (something romantic). In arriving, we admired the outside beauty and its historic charm. We checked in at the host stand. The host, herself appeared casual in her attire, not really fitting in with the atmosphere. We were seated immediately upon arrival and taken to a small table in the first room to the right of the host/front door. The lighting was bright and there sat a table of 4-5 women who carried on conversation as if we were all interested in hearing it. Our table set right next to the waiter station. I was a bit irritated at the fact that they ignored our request for a nicer table. I noticed that the restaurant was not filled and there was better seating. Just in front of me, there was another room with a different theme. The lights were dim and there was a fire place. I wanted to ask to move to the other room when out server arrived but my boyfriend didn't want to be "those" people. I did, however ask her to dim the lights a bit.

We browsed over the menu for a while. They had a nice variety of entrees with a southern twist. After our server went over the specials, we placed out order. I had the trout. Daniel (bf) had the duck. They were served with grits and collard greens. We also ordered some wine. We enjoyed both entrees greatly. However, the wine list was limited. I have seen better wine menus around the area.

The portions were enough to fill us up leaving no room for dessert. Despite the terrible seating arrangement we got stuck with, we had an overall good dinner. The service and food made up for it. :)

The server was unattentive, the food slow and not so great. The atmosphere appauling....black vents, moldy carpets, look at the bottom of the curtains!!! Curious, when I got home I looked up the health department rating...a B....seriously? I paid over 100 dollars for this. I watched a roach scamper up the wall, and smelled a mysterious substance while in the basement bar...I swear it smelled like raw sewage and the bartender told me that is what it was! The bartender also showed me the plant growing from the corner of the bar. Really....the whole experience is disgusting.

had a fabulous dinner on a recent trip to Savannah - recommended by the Concige at the Doubltree. Made a reservation (earliest was 8:15) - so we got there a little early, had a drink in the neat bar and at 8:15 prompt they had a table for us in the main, front dining room. Service was superb as was the food. Was non inexpensive but who cares for this once a year experience. We'll be back.

This was the best resturant ever. Me and my hubby have ate at every steak house you could imagine. This is by the far best. My husband a picky eater but this got his 100% approval.Everything was good from the little biscuits and cornbread to the rib eye and twiced bake potatoe. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Savannah you will not be dissappointed. We are still talking about how good it was to this day and the first time we had every been there was a month ago. Me and my husband live pretty far away and we just want to drive back there so we could eat there. Not to mention after you eat you can tour the house. Its a definte must when visiting Savannah.

When we sat at our table, the waiter showed up 20 minutes later to take our drink order. We waited and waited for bread, but it never came. When we asked the waiter for it, he said they were all out and were making a fresh batch, which was hard to believe as the bread baskets were flowing all over the restaurant. Needless to say, the bread never came. We ordered the she crab soup....but THAT never came. They took it off our bill and gave us dessert on the house. We also ordered a cup of coffee with dessert.....guess what? That never came either. All in all, it was a frustrating dining experience. It is a shame, because the food that actually made it to our table, was very good.

Cons: The waiter was terrible!

I had read about this place in Southern Living and am glad to have experienced such a great place for a fantastic meal, my husband eat the molasses bourbon pork tenderloin while I had the cristy scored flounder. The staff was very attentative. We will definitely come back when in the Savannah area.

We were staying at the Green Palm Inn for ouyr 41st anniversary. Since we'd visited the Old Pink House years ago, we had to go back. This time a local said ask to go to the tavern downstairs. We did just that and hung out at the bar while we waited for a table. The service was perfect and a time to learn a little from the locals dining there. The fireplace, old bank vault door and piano music all added to the comfort, and coziness of the tavern. Then, we were seated and the good times began. The steak my husband had was perfectly grilled and my shrimp and scallops over linguine were so tender and beautifully seasoned. Our server was super attentive and ended by bringing a charming Happy Anniversary written on a plate as we had declined dessert after a scrumptious meal. He also brought a candelabra to set the scene. We will come back again and recommend our new "tavern" location at the Old Pink House to our friends and to anyone reading this.

My boyfriend and I went to The Olde Pink House this past Saturday night (1.31.09) for dinner, and we found it to be overrated. I'd read and heard mixed reviews about the place, but they'd been mostly positive, so we decided to try it. We were promptly seated in the big dining room with the mirrors on the 2nd floor. The room was pretty empty when we arrived, but filled with mostly seniors and large parties throughout our meal. The cocktails and aperitifs were overpriced, but the wine list was decent. We both had the highly touted she-crab soup, which was okay, but nothing to write home about. Our fried green tomato appetizer was forgotten by the waitor (who was otherwise a good server). They took it off the bill, but brought one to us with our meals. I ordered the 8oz. filet, which was a nice cut and cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, it was completely overseasoned, as were the mashed potatoes (which tasted like something that belonged at Longhorn or Outback, not at fine dining establishment). My boyfriend ordered the strip steak. His was slightly overcooked (he ordered it medium rare and it was more like medium when he got it). After tasting the steak with the bordelaise sauce, he said, "I didn't know 'bordelaise' was French for A-1." The peacan pie dessert was nice, and maybe the highlight of the meal. Disappointing to say the least....we had a much more impressive meal at Tubby's on River Street!!!!

I dined at the Old Pink House for the first time last month. It was highly recommended by the conceirge at my hotel. Happy to say that we were very pleased with the excellent service and food options. The chef even did a little something extra with shrimp for my date. Great choice...I'd definitely go back.

Pros: Food Menu Choices, Staff

Cons: None to Note

If you are looking for a more casual experience, go down to the basement. They serve the same menu as the rest of the place but in a more casual atmosphere and you won't feel out of place if you are wearing jeans.

The layout of the restaurant hasn't changed much from the days when it was a home so it gets bit awkward/crowded with waiters passing thru.

I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful first time dinning experience we had in Savannah. All the excellent restaurants to choose from can be a bit overwhelming. I an glad we didn't overlook this absloutely wonderful restaurant. From the old civil war decor to the very very good food. And hats off to the staff as they gave us a little tour and history of this old house that really made us feel comfortable and welcome. I can see why The Olde Pink House is one of Savannah's best places to eat, it was definitely the cherry on top!

my boyfriend and i went there to eat on a whim, it was our first time in Savannah...the house is beautiful!! so many different dining areas that i lost count. the layout is that of an old southern house (it was one of the ony houses to survive the savannah fire) and the decor is truly old civil war southen style, it looks very upscale (white linen table clothes and waiters in ties) but we went in t shirts and shorts and fit right in. the food was excellent ( i highly recommend the pork tenderloin), may not be the most traditional southern food you would think of, but they do have collard greens, execellent mashed potatoes and she crab soup. the wait staff was very attentive, but not overbearing, lots of yes ma'ams and yes sirs, and will tell you about the history of the house. by far the best meal that we had in savannah!!

This is a Savannah must. My husband and I have been twice, the first time on our honeymoon. It is so romantic, beautiful and breathtaking. This historic mansion offers the best food, service and ambiance. We always speak so highly of Savannah, and always recommend The Olde Pink House! Thank you for wonderful memories!

We had reservations for 5 on Saturday evening - so there weren't very many other guests in the restaurant...lots of servers and dining room managers hanging around. Our drink orders and food orders were taken quickly and we got bread and salad. Then we waited and waited and waited. Other tables arrived and were served and we continued to wait for our entrees. 45 minutes later, the entrees arrived and were delicious and our server returned one time to check that everything was good. Then he was MIA for nearly another 40 minutes. Needless to say, we had to ask the dining room manager for the check before anybody came back to ask us if we wanted dessert. We loved the food, but there is no reason to spend the whole evening waiting for it - or the server. Make the food, serve it in a reasonable amount of time, and we might return some day for the food. Never had better steak...

This place is so fabulous. I was really impressed with the service. The food was great! It is awesome how they can take a house and make it into such a beautful functional restaurant. I would definitely go back. it's one of the many places worth going to in Savannah

We had a party of four and had reservations. All of us were very excited to eat dinner
at the Olde Pink House - heard lots of good things about it. Our waitress seated us
in a very nice private area upstairs. It was quiet and serene looking over the square.
That was about the last moment of quiet and serene we had all night. The food was
absolutely wonderful but out service was bizarre beyond compare. The waitress started
out telling ghost stories to the table next to us. Served us our entrees and we mentioned
we hadn't been served our soups and salads yet. She had the nerve to say go ahead
and eat your entrees and soups and salads will be coming soon. I said that we would
not have our entrees until we had the soups and salads first. The restaurant floor
manager was with the waitress when this happened and did say she was very sorry and our
salads and soups were on the house. Entrees took forever - and the waitress said she
was detained by a couple taking a picture on the floor below and a ghost appeared in
the picture. At that point we would have been happy to have a ghost appear and
serve our meal. She got our dessert order wrong and the entire meal took
three hours. Food was fabulous. Service bizarre.

I recently found that the Pink House is now open for lunch!! I know of many people that have eaten there for dinner and have mainly commented on how great the house itself is and how wonderful the food tastes. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the house was just as charming during the day, with seating both inside and outside, and the menu was perfect for lunch. I was not planning on ordering an appetizer for lunch, or dessert for that matter, but the waitress was wonderful in pairing items together and suggesting things that would be enough to fill me up but not overwhelming. My waitress was also more than willing to answer all of my questions about the menu. I recommend the Pink House not only for the food but for the fantastic service! I give this new venture of the Pink House a big thumbs up!

My waitress was also more than willing to answer all of my questions about the menu. I recommend the Pink House not only for the food but for the fantastic service! I give this new venture of the Pink House a big thumbs up!

Pros: Great food, fast for lunch, service

.

Very dissapointing and not romantic, as touted. The upstairs room was old and not terribly asthetic. Although our table was one of two most requested according to a hostess, my view was through a tree to a parking garage. My wife at least had a peek at the square below. The wine list was shallow and resembled a supermarket selection. The "French" Pinot Noir (not Burgundy) was described as "French grapes bottled in California"? At $30 a bottle I thought I would take a chance. You would find this one stocked near the bottom shelf. Although asparagus were fresh and in season, the chef chose to use something not local, ditto the hericot vert, which our nervous waiter just loved to repeat over and over. Even though we had 2 waiters assigned to our table, my wife's she-crab soup arrived long before she was finished with her salad course. When the timing mistake was identified, the soup was removed and returned some 15 minutes later served just barely hot enough. The drizzling of sherry tableside was an unnecessary bit of showmanship. I recommend Harry's in St. Augustine here. My wife's mojito was "not the real deal" as described by the waiter (who was from Miami). Hmmm, perhaps he could enlighten the bartender? The crab cake was soggy and left uneaten. My grilled flounder with fruit chutney was adequate. The hostess reappeared and I let her know I was not happy at all with the service, mentioning that two other tables had eaten and departed. She removed the apps and the soup from the bill, and could not justify tipping our waitstaff. Avoid The OldePink House.

Thank goodness General Sherman didn't burn down Savannah, like he did Atlanta. The Old Pink House sits right on one of those famous squares, that dot the downtown historic district. Pale pink exterior, that invites one in for one of the most romantic dining spots anywhere. Fireplaces, especially good this time of year, antiques, and a very caring staff. Start with the best She-Crab soup you will ever have in your life, with just the right amount of Sherry. All the fresh seafood entree's are wonderful, especially the crab-cakes and seared scallops. You might want to dress casual-dressy, and you will fit right in. Be prepared to hear the ghost stories. And finish the night downstairs, in the small intimate bar. Old Pink House is one of the places that makes Savannah, special and romantic!

My now-fiance took me to this restaurant the night we got engaged. He was trying to set a romantic mood with not only the food, but the atmosphere. He requested I dress up and he wore a suit. I ended up wearing a cocktail dress. We were over-dressed. Most of the others in the restaurant were in casual clothes. However, that was the only thing I wasn't completely satisfied with. The dinner was absolutely enchanting. The staff was so friendly and kept us in a light mood. The flour-less chocolate cake (a personal favorite of ours) was amazing. It's something you should not miss out on. I can't remember exactly what we ate, but we had two different dinners and and appetizer. I tried his and he tried mine and it was all phenomonal. I can't wait to go back. The park across the road is also a bonus at dark!

My boyfriend and I went to the restaurant during our trip to Savannah November 8-12. The house really stands out along the square and has a lot of history, which we heard all about on our tour. We headed first to the bar downstairs, which was amazing. It was crowded, had a piano player, and a roaring fire. I ordered a cosmo, and being from the NY area, I didn't expect it to be as yummy and well-made as it was. The atmosphere in the bar is great and I would highly recommend going there before you eat. Upstairs, the place has a feeling of a house museum only it is a bustling restaurant. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. I started with the special salad, which was excellent. I then had the beef tenderloin and all of it was great. The food was delicious, the wine list was great, the service was friendly and fast. Our waitress told us about the ghosts she has seen there and tried to help us find them in the room. I can't say enough. Go! Enjoy! make reservations!

My husband and I ate here while vacationing in Savannah and were very pleased. To begin with, this restaurant is (as the name suggests), located in a beautifully preserved historic home. This is nice for 2 reasons. 1: the fireplaces and paintings give it a very homey feel (not at all like your typical restaurant). And 2: the rooms of the home partition the tables nicely, giving you a bit of extra privacy. The only other people in our room were an older couple. The atmosphere was very serene and relaxed. Our waiter was unbelievable. Probably one of the most articulate and well-informed waiters Ive ever come across. And the food, which was certainly southern inspired, was excellent. It was a little bit pricey, but I would certainly recommend this place for a special evening.

Pros: service; food; ambience

The food was amazing - some of the best seafood I've ever had! I "don't like crab", but I very much liked the crab soup! The service was wonderful as well - very professional, yet personable as well. Easily on par with many of the restaurants I've been to in New York. Definitely want to make a reservation.

My husband and I both have been in the restaurant business, which does not make us experts, but...my husband is a bit of a connoiseur when it comes to food and did not enjoy the food here. I, on the other hand, am not a connoisseur and grew up with my mother's bland cooking. I will eat almost anything. With that said, not only was the food at The Olde Pink House not worth the money, but it was simply bland! Never been to fine dining I didn't like until this one! There are so many other nice restaurants in Savannah, including those in historic buildings, so PLEASE don't waste your money!

The Olde Pink House was a wonderful experience. We had made reservatoins for 9:45, but arrived early and thought that we might take a shot at being seated. To our surprise we were immediately seated by a staff that seemed to by genuinely happy to serve us. The service was prompt and our waitress engaging. Then came the food!! What a treat! One comment from our table was that it was one of the top ten meals they have ever had period. The menu is pricy, but it is worth it for the experience.

Main entree is about $17-25. We had fish. Wonderful food. It is a nice restaurant in an old pink house. Restaurant (formal) is in upper level and the bar (casual) is downstairs. One of the most famous restaurant in town.

The food was not as good as the price says it should be. Lots of stairs to climb. On beautiful Lafayette Square. Very picturesque.

Pros: Historic, Haunted?, Hospitable

Beautiful house, real ghost history but lacking in fresh appeal somehow. Not in the food sense just drawing a crowd that didn't actually know James Habersham. No offense gramms and gramps cause I love your stories but unless you're looking to dine amongst real revolutionaries(which can be cool), you might want to do a little more homework on where you're going to eat. My pick would be to try their Bistro Savannah or their Garibaldi's restaurants.
