What a place!!!

We had a terrific time at the Jolly Roger. One can't help enjoy the signs on the road leading you straight uphill to the place; all handpainted by friendly Wayne, they are welcoming to this most chill-axing, open-air retreat, from whatever ails you.

We enjoy the Jolly Roger and all the the atmosphere it offers. Great North American style wings with an awesome assortment of sauces and rubs. This is not a fancy place. This is a place for good food, cold beer,exotic tequila and a good time. Wayne and the guys are part of the fun. Keep it up!

Awesome bar/restaurant. You may have to wait awhile because the food is so good, but once you are seated and served you will feel right at home. The wings are to die for. They will be the best wings you ever ate. You may doubt me but after you try them there will be no doubt. They also have delicious... More

As soon as you arrive, you are warmly welcomed by Wayne. The menu is on the wall. Wings and Burgers are fabulous. Very nice Costa Rican vibe and the view is well worth the long drive up. Going back for a third time before heading back to the States. Highly recommend.

Been to Dominical four times now and always make time for a stop at Jolly Roger. The road to get up there is like a lot of the other mountain roads in Dominical, dirt but doable with pretty much any car. Driving up there is one of the best parts of the trip. Burgers are very good and the wings... More

keep driving and eventually you get to the top of the mountain and this fun bar. my PA native hubby was excited to see all of the Steelers decor. service was painfully slow (although the bartender was the only one working-he was working the bar and waiting all of the tables-he said no one else showed up to work that...

Tourists and locals alike receive a warm welcome at this super chill spot that serves up fantastic wings and one of the best burgers in Costa Ballena. Great place to catch sunset with an equally nice atmosphere once the sun goes down. Behind the bar or cruising between tables, Wayne will take care of you.

The drive up the mountainside was a little scary but his artsy signs en route made it fun. Definitely a bar like setting, overlooking an awesome view of the tree tops and ocean, with a full wing menu. The wings were very, very good. Our host was friendly and engaging. This was an interesting place to be. Captain Awesome :)

great hamburgers and the best wings around. Ralph is the bartender and he is a great guy. Very low key place and if you love football this is a great place to eat, drink and watch the NFL.
