Food is excellent, but space is limited. Could not fit a large crowd. We were in the area to buy fall apples and we were not disappointed

Have eaten at Jolly Roger's several times and with only one exception, it has been great! On our last visit, we ordered a cocktail crab claw appetizer and when we started to eat it, it had a strong smell of ammonia. We brought it to our waitress attention, whom was apologetic and attentive to the problem. Now, the dining room... More

Can't complain about the food at all. They have very limited space so seating isn't great. For me, it's too pricey when compared with other great alternatives in the area.

I grew up on the Gulf Coast and I know what great seafood tastes like. These guys are doing it right! Excellent food and service!

We love Jolly Rogers and the food is delish! Service is great! Establishment is very very small and booths are not comfy and it is adjoining a service station! One of those hole in the wall joints that turns out to be great! But the food and service make up for it.

This used to be my favorite place in Ellijay, though a little pricey. The food used to be wonderful, and service was great. However, they started advertising at Valero, and they are a very small establishment to start with. They're not equipped to handle large crowds, as the old, hard booths seat, at most, 4, and there's only about 12.... More

This nondescript, wee little restaurant and seafood market located next to a service station has good seafood. Our seafood was fresh and cooked well, but the sides were ordinary. Still, the seafood was the star of the show and they knew how to cook it. The service was great! The seafood market was loaded with goodies that, if one has... More

We’ve eaten at JR several times each year over the 10 years we’ve lived in Ellijay. Always enjoyed ourselves and so have friends we’ve taken there…until our last lunch. We started with the smoked fish spread that we’ve had before. This version has a nice smoky flavor, but was too salty. Senior citizens are constantly concerned about too much salt.... More

Been going there for years. Fish is as good as my Florida favorites. Always fresh tasting. Just need to arrive before it gets full.
