Vacationed in OBX and everyone said "you have to go there and eat". We did! Twice! Service is good, always packed at any time whether it's breakfast or late night drinks! Like this place!

Locals said they go here for breakfast. We skipped right over the regular breakfast and went with Seafood Omelet. OMG best ever. Apples and thick sliced raisin bread. It was so much food that I got a too go box and had it again the next morning. Waiter and staff were super friendly. They have a fun gift area. Dressed... More

Pirate themed, friendly staff, atmosphere and food were great! Next time, will consider splitting an entree as the portions were generous.

Food is ok as is the service. Not sorry that we came but not in a hurry to return. We had the rib and shrimp special. Ribs were tasty but we prefer dry rub to the wet sauce. The pile of shrimp made it a good value but several were over cooked.

We had breakfast here - our waitress Sandee was a hoot and a pleasure to greet the morning with. We asked her to take a group photo and she brought us pirate hat and eye patches to make the photo even more fun! As you can see, the breakfast portions are PLENTIFUL. And the food was delicious.

I loved the decorations of this place. It is a mixed pirate and Christmas theme. Like the theme, I have mixed feelings on this place. The food took a long time to arrive about 30 minutes and they only had about half the tables full but it was good. One meal, a lunch steak was excellent but the other two... More

Nixie, not knowing when you visited, I can't really comment on the 30 minute wait time for freshly prepared food. All food here, unlike fast food restaurants, are made to order. We strive very hard for cleanliness, and I am sorry that we missed your drink menu!! Thank you for letting us know and we will make greater efforts in... More

The very friendly staff made an impression on us. Among them , Susan, and Big Mike. The other staff, sadly we did not learn their names, but we ate breakfast there every day of our stay at the Outer Banks. The food was out of this world, especially breakfast.

There are advertisements everywhere about jolly rogers but I was disappointed. It was more expensive than I expected & coupon for appetizers was only for a small selection. The restaurant may have been good years ago but is old & worn now. Service & quality of food was good. We were a couple & were seated in a corner table... More

I am sorry to hear of your disappointment! Old and worn? Yes, this building was built in the 1930's as Mr. Deans Gas Station and grocery store. Our prices compare, if not beat, other restaurants in our resort area...We were good years ago, and we are still good, as you said, service and quality of food were good. Please let... More
