Pirates galore

Kitchy Pirate-themed restaurant with each room a bit different. Some booths, some tables. Waitresses in pirate gear, and pirate themed gift shop too. Food can be awesome or just so-so. We had tapas one night and they were super. Very creative and cooked just right. Breakfast is truly awesome... read more

We were hesitant about going to JR at first. Being a themed restaurant, we didn't have great hopes. We looked online and saw their breakfast and decided to try it. Best. Decision. Ever. Delicious food, excellent service. Our waitress (Heather) was awesome and brought us everything we needed. We were a party of 8, and she took care of us... More

Not impressed the menu didn't offer much and the food was less than average. Kind of a dark and greasy dive. Lots of better places around to spend your money.

I am sorry to hear that your visit did not meet your expectations....Jolly Roger is not a pretentious restaurant....we pride ourselves on being a dive...the locals favorite dive. ( and pirate ships are dark and divey....)...in response to your statement "he menu didn't offer much ", we offer almost everything, from seafood, steaks, burgers, to a full breakfast menu as...

This place is one of my must go-to's at the beach. There breakfast is reasonably priced and the portions are humongous! I love the quirky ambiance and if you're lucky

My wife and I ate the Garlic Seafood for 2 for our anniversary. It was delicious. Everything was cooked just right. The service was great. The drink selection was also great.

I love the Jolly Roger for its atmosphere and the helpful wait staff. Everyone is very friendly and this is one of the oldest restaurants left on the Outer Banks. The food, for the most part, is average. Breakfasts are amazing! The prices are great too.

Be sure to read all the items they have with the menus as your waitress may nit tell you what is the special or specials for the day. For example a glass of wine was $1.00 did not see that until I ordered a mixed drink. We asked what the dinner specials were for the evening and she went through... More

My friends and I discovered Jolly Roger during our April 2015 visit. Wow! We just-so-happen to really like local beach dive places and this was spot on! We went two nights in a row and two mornings in a row. Great crowd with straight forward bartenders offering up good drinks, cold beer, and yummy burgers. After a night of partying... More
