“delicious appetizer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We had the crabcake on gouda cheese grit cake appetizer and it was amazing! Service was a little slow but the food was really good! It's advertised as Italian food but if you are expecting Italian food like NJ and NY areas you will be disappointed. However, if you are looking for really good seafood dishes with an Italian influence it's perfect. Nice atmosphere as well! Lots of historical pictures, nautical objects, and Christmas ornaments. Outside bar sounded like a lot of fun but we didn't go out there!

“Great Italian food on the Outer Banks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We've been going to the Jolly Roger for years and years and we are never disappointed. While they have fantastic seafood (I personally love the shrimp parmigiana) my sister is allergic to all shell fish so going to a restaurant that has great seafood plus great Italian dishes really works for us. This year we had our nieces with us and they loved the food as well although they did complain that the portion sizes were too large! The wait staff was excellent. We had 'early bird' coupons where if we were seated by 5:30 we got a 'buy one get one free' discount. We arrived just a couple of minutes before that expired and our waitress made sure she got our drink order in the system so that we could get the discount. And, speaking of the discount, it's a great deal so anyone planning to go there should look in the local guide books for a coupon. There were four of us and we only paid for two of our dinners! The decor is a little kitschy and dated but charming in its own way. Don't let that stop you from having a great meal at a reasonable price.

“Nice Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

We ended up here on our first night in town. The food was very good. The kids were happy and they enjoyed being pirates. Very family friendly. The prices were comparable to any restaurant. My husband enjoyed the lobster special as did I with a shrimp dish. Prices were comparable to any other restaurant.

“Great Breakfast and Prime Rib!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were pleasantly suprised with our breakfast and dinner at Jolly Roger. We had breakfast on two mornings and Prime Rib Friday night for only $9.99.

The breakfast was great....2 eggs/homemade hash browns/bacon and 2 slices of toasted homemade bread and unlimited pours of coffee. The wait staff is friendly and makes out of towners feel like locals. The process from placing our order to receving our meal was very fast and is run efficiently.

The prime rib on Friday night was one of the biggest slices we've had especially since we both asked for an end cut and actually got it! It was delicious.

The decor in the restaurant is a conversation piece for sure......christmas ornaments hanging from the ceiling for example, in one of the rooms.

Thanks for great food and a fun environment!
