Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

March 20, 2019 - The Olde Pink House, a legendary restaurant and architectural treasure located at 23 Abercorn Street in the heart of Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District, plans to re-open the first-floor dining rooms, Planter’s Tavern and Arches Bar on Monday, April 8, 2019. The iconic restaurant, which was originally built in 1771, has been temporarily closed following a fire in the upstairs ballroom in late December.   

"We’re thrilled to welcome guests back to this important piece of Savannah history, beginning on April 8,” said Olde Pink House General Manager Craig Jeffress. “We know The Olde Pink House is a very special place that means so much to so many people in our community, and our goal is to restore the interiors exactly as people remember. Some of the finishing touches will still be completed through the month of April, but we want to get our treasured staff back to work as soon as possible and to help our loyal customers make incredible memories once again.”

Since January, The Pinyan Company has been meticulously restoring the restaurant’s classic Georgian architecture and signature Savannah interiors. Much of the restoration involves custom pieces that take time to manufacture.

“We will open with five dining rooms initially, but in the weeks to follow, more of the original home will be available to our guests for dining,” said Jeffress. “As the rooms open, guests will quickly see the quality and attention to detail that went into the restoration.”

One of Savannah’s most acclaimed dining destinations, The Olde Pink House serves new Southern cuisine, seafood specialties and creative cocktails in an elegant setting defined by its distinctive charm, warmth and character. Known for signature culinary specialties like Crispy Scored Flounder with Apricot Shallot Sauce, Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Bourbon Molasses and Cornbread Fried Oysters, this iconic restaurant has won numerous culinary awards over the years.

Based on the current restoration timeline, The Olde Pink House is expected to open daily at 5 p.m. and seat diners until 10:30 p.m., beginning April 8. The Planters Tavern featuring live music and the Arches Bar with indoor and outdoor seating will be open later into the evening.

From April 8-14, guests will be seated on a walk-in basis. Reservations are currently being accepted for April 15 and beyond. To make a reservation, call 912.232.4286 or visit

“We are forever grateful to the Savannah community for all their support after the fire in December and appreciate the high-quality work The Pinyan Company is doing to restore The Olde Pink House to its original splendor,” said Jeffress. “We look forward to serving our local guests and the many visitors to our great city.”
