We go to Ocracoke every year during our stay in Hatteras. Invariably we end up at the Jolly Roger. This year our waitress was positively surly. My teenage daughter's water was basically watered down sprite (they come from the same button on the hose at the bar...hence hers was the first glass filled and there was sprite syrup in the hose). She wouldn't ask for a fresh glass because she was afraid the waitress would yell. Service was very slow, the restaurant was full, but not crazy crowded like I've seen it other times. Good iced tea, Arnold Palmers and cold beer, free refills on the iced tea. Crab cake was good, tuna bites from app menu were excellent, hummus was awful. The boys liked their burgers and the fries were great.
This is not fine dining, great location, cold beer...in the past we've had fun waitresses, maybe this was just a bad day for the one we had this year.
IMPORTANT--if you are visiting Ocracoke, bathrooms (real ones) are at a premium...most stores send you to one of the Porto-pots located strategically throughout the town. Use the bathroom at the Jolly Roger before you leave. They're not exactly welcoming if you stop back to use the bathroom.
On the Porto-pot note...the one behind Ride the Wind Surf Shop isn't used as much as the others and it is clean and stocked with toilet paper.
