Awesome

What a quaint place. Real fresh seafood. The smoked trout dip alone is worth the trip. Bring your own alcohol BC they don't serve any. Service was really great. There was 10 of us. We were half of the restaurant.

Good food but poor service and very small prices are high for the quantity that you receive would not highly recommend this place

My husband and I ate dinner here on a recent trip to Ellijay. Hands down the best fresh seafood we've had away from the coast. He ate grilled grouper, and I ate grilled triggerfish (rarely available away from the coast). Both were fresh and perfectly grilled. There was a large selection of other fresh fish which is also available at... More

Stopped in for lunch. Very busy and only one wait staff. All tables were full and there was a wait but the food was great except the slaw. Service was excellent considering how busy they are. The coleslaw was not as tasty as the fried shrimp and fish with fries. The slaw tasted like it had been made a tad... More

Notice it is also a seafood market? I went here to get a single oyster for my daughter to dissect for school, and they would not let me pay them for it. My wife and daughters are allergic to seafood, so I haven't eaten there. But it's a little place ran by friendly people, I'd bet the food is excellent.

This place is only open on weekends. The seafood is fresh...flown in weekly. Very limited seating. But one of the better restaurants in Ellijay.

Jolly Roger has the best seafood in the area. It is brought in fresh and so much better than the other seafood restaurants in town. The restaurant is very small. Try not to come at linch hour unless you are willing to wait.

This restaurant is tucked between a paint Store and a gas station. The atmosphere is always nice, and they have a good selection of seafood. The hush puppies are very good. My husband likes the shrimp and I love the crab legs. Although sometimes they can be a little too salty. It is also on the higher end of the... More

Excellent food. Small restaurant but turnover is very efficient. We were seated when things were hopping but our food came quickly. Everything was coastal quality and service was excellent!!

Great seafood, good prices. I usually just get seafood to bring home and cook. They have a variety of seafood that you can't usually get in the grocery stores, here. Excellent quality and the staff are great.
