Upstairs Bar

The bar upstairs (when Violet is bartending) is fun and the view is great. Happy hour is a good bargain.

Always go here when we are in the San Diego area. You can count on the food always being good! Our server was friendly and attentive.

We had a total of 14 people for happy hour and dinner. The service for this large of a group was very good as was the food. Would definitely go back again. Also, you can't beat the view of the Oceanside Harbor.

If you like boats, harbors, and the sound of seagulls, you get the idea, you'll love this location. Food is average to good and the interior decor could us a face lift. The area is ideal for simply hanging out and enjoying a nice stroll. Ample parking and there is an upstairs dining area with a lovely view.

Old and dingy, this place needs a total this place needs a total remodel. I went there about two weeks ago and I know I will never go back.

Customer service is lousy. This is the second visit, was there a few months ago as well. Yesterday a waiter nearly ran into me and my son when we were coming back from the bathroom, he had come out of the kitchen then stopped and looking down the main aisle the opposite direction (holding his look for several seconds), then...

We're so disappointed to read about your most recent experience at the Jolly Roger. We strive to make sure that all of our guests have 5-star experience when they join us, but it sounds like we really missed the mark when you dined with us. The service you received is not the kind of experience we ever want a guest... More

This was once "THE" place to eat in Oceanside but the last time we went the food was mediocre and the place looked run down. Sad but this place needs someone to love it once again and bring it back to glory.

I was scared by the yelp status of this place but I was told it was a fun place to try so we went here. I was very happy with both the food and the service. The food was perfectly cooked and my iced tea was never close to empty. This place also has an amazing view of the water... More
