We've gotten breakfast here before as a perk from staying at one of the hotels, and the prices are great, portions big, food tasty

In 30 plus years of traveling to the Outer Banks, I've only eaten at another restaurant other than the Jolly Roger, once! And that was because it was so crowded we couldn't get in!! We eat breakfast and dinner at the Jolly Roger. We're still too full from breakfast to eat lunch!!

If you are looking for a grand, spacious, modern, sleek upscale restaurant, this ain't it. I'f you are looking for where the locals go, good Italian, good fried oysters and a place to tell your friends about this is it! It's been around since the early 60's, decorated with Christmas ornaments hanging from the ceiling year round, some if which... More

My husband and I had dinner there on Veteran's Day (Friday, Nov 11, 2016). We waited about an hour or so but it was sooo worth it. They offer a Prime Rib special every Friday night and on Veteran's Day, any vet got free dinner up to like $19.00 per person so the place was hopping. Staff is awesome!! Mom... More

Service was very good- family oriented and friendly. Food came quick and was correct. Kids enjoyed the food. Waitress was friendly and checked on us several times. We had a large party and everyone was very satisfied. We will return here again.

We always have lunch here at least once a week. The lunch menu fills you up and a really reasonable price. The sea food plates are great and filling.

No end to the breakfast choices at good prices. Try the pancake lasagna - a stack of sausage, pancakes, bacon, eggs and more. The place is a bit worn, less than spotlessly clean. But a great ticky-tacky seashore location for couples and families.
