The decor of this place is pirate themed, and definitely memorable / different from the standard restaurant. I found the waiters very attentive with great suggestions on the specials and the beer. Dinner was served quickly and tasted great. Slightly on the expensive side, but the food was good.

We had the flounder for dinner and it was so fresh and tasty! The service was great. The restaurant was decked out with Christmas décor.

Impressive menu and attentive staff. Both ordered pasta and were not disappointed! Meatballs were out of this world! Key Lime pie for desert (which we had to get to go since we were soooo full) was divine! The best thing though.....the marinara base sauce for the pasta. Tangy tomatoes, nice garlic accent and spiced just right!

Two couples out for New Year's Eve Dinner, staff was friendly and we had called ahead and were seated right away. Dinner was cooked to order and no complaints on the the food. Prices were very reasonable for dinner and cocktails. When we went to the bar area for drinks it was very crowded which we expected for New Year's... More

We stopped in for lunch. The food was very tasty. It arrived pretty quick. The waitress was friendly and brought drink refills when needed. We would definitely come back.

For the third year we enjoyed a Christmas Day dinner at Jolly Roger's. The food was great and reasonably priced. The restaurant was full and busy. Still the waiter was pleasant and attentive to all of his tables. Again a nice experience for my wife and I as we end the year with a quiet trip to the beach.

We felt someone strange because everyplace we selected was closed for the season. Kinda like turn away from the inn!!!! We almost gave up but we came across the jolly Rogers and what a Gem. The staff was great and the food was great. Both the seafood and Italian food was great. Will return.
