Best wings - anywhere!

Wing sauces are made as you order them - no pre-mixed sauces here! AMAZING! And the selection was incredible, each one better than the last. We ended up ordering 6 orders and splitting them between all of us so we could try multiple flavors.

You know this place is going to be different. First - its up a steep gravel road - way up. The road isn't lit - if your first time there is at night...keep going...you haven't missed it. When you walk in to the open air building - the first thing you see is a banner that says, "This is Steelers... More

We had such a fun time at the Jolly Roger. The view was amazing and the food was delicious. We got to listen to live music while we where there.

Jodie was our ATV tour guide for Diamante Tours and had us stop in for a snack here as he works at the bar in the evenings. The wings were outstanding and the service was on point. Had the Peanut Thai and Spicy Garlic wings and they were some of the best I've had (ever). If we weren't staying in... More

This place is HIGH up a mountain . And who knows what the staff and owner are HIGH on. Everybody in the front of the house was. Our service was slow and only a footnote if not an interruption in the good times. On prior visits the wings have been good,being the only place up here we tend to return.... More

Our hosts from our vacation rental suggested we all head up to Jolly Roger for their delicious wings and to see the Toucans. The road up the hill is a bit of a challenge but eventually you come upon the restaurant. The view of ocean is amazing. We all started with "storm fries" which were fries covered in parmasan and...

If you like chicken wings, this is the place to eat! You have a choice of over twenty kinds of chicken wings, made to order, from very mild to very spicy. I personally loved the honey mustard chicken wings. They were tangy and the wings were crunchy, just the way I like them. I ordered a salad, never dreaming that... More

We heard about the place and decided to find it. Look closely for the sign because its not was to see and remember, they don't open unto 4. We got there early and Wayne was great, treating us to beers and giving us the history of the place. The owners came from Buffalo, NY so they know how to do... More
