Wonderful Dinner experience – 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 place is Awesome! – 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.
Terrible Service but good food – 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.
A must do when in Savannah – 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.
Great ambiance, service and food! – 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.
Overrated & Overseasoned...trying too hard to be good. – 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!!!!
Very Romantic Restaurant! – 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.
An absloute must in Savannah! – 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!
perfect example of southern hospitality – 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!!
enjoyable evening – It was my first trip to Savannah and I loved this restaurant!!! hats off to the staff
they were wonderful. The staff was very helpful in the selection of our dinner
We loved the food. It will be my first stop when I return to Savannah.
