Quite a climb up the hill but definitely worth it. Had we been there a little earlier I'm sure the view would have been fabulous. Sometimes you just need a burger or wings and they definitely have good ones. The drinks leave a little to be desired as the bartender/waiter is aloof in his approach as to what is available....

Just got back from the Jolly Roger. A great place to pass the time when it's raining. Delicious wings, seriously good!!!! The storm fries are also too delicious to pass up. Don't miss this place.

You'll be cryin all the way to the bathroom lol. There is also an ok beer selection, but bring your colones, its cash only and a bit... More

This place is half way up a mountain. No joke. Once there, you'll find a great laid back place, friendly staff, and great bar food. EXCELLENT wings and pizza! Always TVs on, very sports-heavy bar. Good selection of booze, served with a smile. It's worth the trip up the mountain!

The owner of the villa we were renting said hey, if you find yourself looking for something different try the Jolly Roger, it's up this bumpy road and if you think that you could possibly go anymore because it's to steep and windy then you must be getting g close! Holy man he wasn't kidding!! There are signs of encouragement... More

Ate here for a little burger action after 5 days of Costa Rican cuisine (which is exceptional). All I can say is WOW! Our blew away almost any burger in the states! The wings were super good and the fries were fresh cut and amazing! They had plenty of beer to choose from and it was ice cold. Jeudy was... More

This sign was half way up the mountain and was well needed. The road to get there, bumpy, craggly, but like the sign says...there is a bar. Great place to sit and watch football (American) and to sit while the breeze is cool and so is the beer! Thanks to Bailey for the time and also the wings definitely are... More

Remodeled since I last went there, Jolly Roger's improved the comfort of dining a lot while not reducing the comforting "hometown feel" of the restaurant. The menu has expanded, but I went for the cheeseburger as always and wasn't disappointed. Jolly Roger's remains a gem on Escaleras Road. If only they served breakfast too ;)

Great location a short drive up the mountain road and half hanging off of a cliff, Jolly Roger is decorated like the coolest tree house you ever dreamed of. This place specializes in a couple dozen flavors of wings and huge burgers and chicken sandwiches. The fries are the bomb, you will find yourself inhaling them. Everyone is here to... More

Gotta have the Chicken wings there is at least 24 different flavors that you can get. A great bar with I believe nine big screen TV's in the middle of the jungle high atop the mountain top. Also a must order is the French fries with Garlic Butter and Parmesan cheese appetizer very very tasty.
