The Olde Pink House Restaurant
Located in the heart of historic Savannah, Georgia, The Olde Pink House, Savannah's only 18th century mansion, is famous for memorable dining experiences featuring seafood caught daily in local waters, prime aged beef and traditional southern fare.
If you only have an evening in Savannah and want a delightful dining experience in every way, make your way to the Olde Pink House on historic Abercorn street. The food is not only delicious, it is creatively prepared with both nose and eye appeal.
The service staff couldn't have been more accomodating to our impromptu arrival. Our jovial server, Jeff, was both charming and knowledgeable. He made us feel as welcomed in our traveling clothes as he did the suited and sequinned crowd. While this is not the noisy river scene, you can freely converse and enjoy yourself without worry.
We have eaten several of the lobster/scallop dishes. The seafood has always been fresh and tender. The sauces have complimented without overpowering the rest of the ingredients. Save room for dessert. The apple/raisin bread pudding with bourbon sauce will make you smile.
While prices are comparable with any high-end restaurant, you will leave satisfied and happy with the entire experience.
My wife and I visited the restaurant recently. The hostess was very friendly and seated us immediately even though we arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation.
Our waiter, McLean, was extraordinary. After we mentioned that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, he had the pastry chef prepare a special dessert and brought candles to our table.
The food was excellent and the people went out of their way to make us feel welcome. This was an excellent dining experience.
My husband & I spend Labor Day weekend in Savannah and had a wonderful time. Our last night in town we decided to go out on the town and have a romantic evening. We chose The Old Pink House and were not disappointed. Our server was the best and the food was wonderful. We will be going back next time we are in town.
So good I recommended it to my friend for their anniversary

I booked a table for two for my husband as a surprise for our first wedding anniversary I requested a quiet romantic table and thats exactly what we got. The service was fantastic, so attentive and quick.. the food was absolutely divine I cant remember when I enjoyed a meal so much ( and I'm hard to please when it comes to food !)..and as a surprise they presented us with complimentary dessert, saying happy anniversary in chocolate and candles...it ended the night perfectly. It was so good I recommended it to my friend who's going for their anniversary
I went to the Olde Pink House based largely on recommendations from www.10Best.com - and boy were they right on the money!! This restaurant is easily one of THE BEST I've ever had the immense pleasure of dining at - and I've been eating out at restaurants since I was old enough to hold a fork!
The restaurant itself is comfortable arranged with tables to accomodate small and large parties alike, and as soon as you enter you're greated by wonderful classical music that sweeps you into an air of yesterday, perfectly blending with the surroundings and antique furnishings.
The staff is beyond reproach, curteous, friendly and efficient - I didn't ONCE have to ask for a refill, my silverware was promptly replaced after each course without interrupting my meal.
I ordered 4 courses and each was more delectable than the previous one. I started with Grilled Portabello Mushrooms, served lightly seasoned with Roma Tomatoes and some cruditees. This was followed by a Caesar Salad the liked of which I have NEVER had the pleasure of eating before - perfectly seasoned without being overwhelming, just the right amount of dressing without turning the lettuce into a soggy mess like in cheap chain restaurants, and infused with freshly grated Parmiggiano - simply divine! My entree was Almond-Encrusted Tilapia with Herb Sauce and Wild Rice - the fish was delicious, fresh, and cooked to perfection and the sauce was out of this world! To finish off my perfect meal was a marvelous piece of heavenly Key Lime Pie - smooth and velvety, just the right combination of sweet, tart & tangy.
All in all, this is easily in the top 3 restaurants that I've eaten at in my whole life - if you're ever in Savannah, do not miss this gem, it's worth every single penny!!
An elegant dining experience that was not too sophisticated for my 10 year old to enjoy. The setting is beautiful with the rooms dimmed, spotlights picking out the portraits on the walls. The wait staff was attentive, but didn't take themselves too seriously. The food was glorious! We had she-crab soup, grilled tilapia, and for dessert...a praline basket of vanilla ice cream topped with mango sauce and fresh fruit. YUMMMMM!
First, just walking in the door is an experience. Originally built in 1771 -- five full years before American Independence -- this is a magic place that has to be on your list of Savannah Must Sees.
Food: Very good with ample portions. My wife had the chicken with blueberry glaze and it was superb. The bisque is terrific; the desserts divine.
Service: Very charming, attentive and smiles galore. We had a large dinner in the Purple Room upstairs (very haunted!) and the staff was a delight. Three cheers for Beth (the GM) and the lovely Bianca, who made our evening so remarkable.
Don't Miss: You have to stumble down to the old bar in the cellar. It is very dark, but also very cool (as in temperature) so it is a wonderful respite from the often oppressive heat. They have two (yes, two!) fireplaces going even in July! The room must have been visited by pirates, sea captains, Confederate generals, British Colonial elite and everything inbetween. The imagination can run wild in a place that has been serving guests for more than 230 years!
You should consider at least business casual wardrobe -- many will be in sports coats and sun dresses.
This is a must see, must experience kind of place. Don't miss it!
My wife and I ate at The Olde Pink House on our first night in Savannah and we were so impressed that we returned a week later with four other couples. The manager, Bianca, was very sweet and our server (for both visits), Kimberly, was the best...she was entertaining and knowledgeable. Everything she recommended was excellent. My wife had the beef tenderloin and I had the rack of lamb. We most definitely will return to The Olde Pink House on our next visit to Savannah.
