Friendly staff, nice draft beer choice and tasty grub in a picturesque location of Wakaiwa. Good choice on the menu to enjoy while the locals enjoy a beer and sport on the box.

We went to the Jolly Roger as it was within walking distance of our motel so it saved us having to drive into Picton. We found the food to be good tasty pub grub which suited us fine. Staff were friendly and efficient so we went back the next night. Not fine dining but good tasty food

Great place to while away the day in sleepy Waikawa Marina. Good value pub grub served with a smile, what more can you ask for a nice cold beer and yummy crispy fries, after a day out fishing.

I had an ordinary fish burger which took a long time to arrive but it came with very tasty waffle fries. The owner/ manager and staff were nice and friendly and there was a friendly resident dog . This might be the only restaurant / bar in marina . Stop for a drink and waffle fries
