Who would think you could find great fresh seafood in the mountains? That's exactly what my wife and I found. The seafood at Jolly Roger was as good and fresh as any I've ever had on the coast. The fried oysters were perfect and my wife really enjoyed the scallops. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. It is not... More

We live in a town close by and have been going here for years and did not realize I had never given the restaurant a review. When I am craving good flounder and fries, we love this place. My husband last time tried the blackened and like it as well. We also bought more flounder to take home and will... More

We finally got to eat at Jolly Rogers! Their hours of operation are limited but be patient and it will happen. I LOVE fried seafood and this place does it right. They start with fresh and lightly batter and fry to perfection!

Always a great experience. Very local. Allow for a wait to be seated. No call ahead or reserve. BYOB. Cam only seat 4 people per booth. Highly recommend. Fried seafood, Blackens or grilled. Can't go wrong.

We had lived in the area for over 8 years before we knew about and tried Jolly Rodger and we were not disappointed. We both had seafood and it was delicious, fresh and nicely prepared. The restaurant has limited hours and days that it is open, there is a limited number of tables and always very busy with many locals.... More

Incredible place--if you can get in. It is tiny, but has fresh seafood case for carrying seafood home to cook. Love the fried oysters and crabs. Red potatoes are fantastic as a side. Friendly service.

We visited Jolly Roger on a Thursday evening. We arrived at 4:30 as we were told they are small and lines form quickly. Thank God we did because soon after our party of 8 arrived there was a line. There are 7 booths total in this establishment. The fish was fresh and you can see it in the cases packed... More

I followed the Trip Advisor reviews for the best seafood in Ellijay. I am so glad that I did. The market has a case full of fresh seafood on display when you enter. Both of the waitresses were friendly and asked us to have a seat to wait on a table. As we looked around we saw there were only... More
