Food was generally excellent. One person in our group said " best beef nachos ever". Also loved the seafood chowder served in bread bowls. Great views, and worth a drink even if not going to eat. Enjoyed our multiple visits over our week in Picton.

Have never put anything on Tripadvisor before but this was one of the worst meals we had ever had - anywhere!! On one rare occassion we had no children for the night we thought we would treat ourselves out for a meal. As a local we decided to retry the Jolly hoping its reputation had improved - wrong. Only other table ordering was a table of six and their meal was coming out at one plate at a time over 30 minute period. We waited 40+ minutes for our meal - it was cold and the chips looked like they were reheated, when I put my fork into them they flew off the plate and onto the floor. Unfortunately I would NOT recommend eating at this place - go for a drink the view is fantastic. That is the only positive thing I can say about the place it needs a good clean and spruce up. What a shame.

Food is not much, but ok for bar food. Servce was friendly but only ever one bar staff on duty so a bit slow when a few people to serve and on one day we were told up to an hour for the food. It was not the tourist season so staff were probably less as very few customers most of the time.
Go on a nice sunny day when you can sit on the tables outside and watch the boats in the marina, worth it for the view. Best time is the happy hours approx 5pm when you a get a jug of beer for $10.
