Having been to the Outerbanks several times we've never stopped here. The house we rented this year was just up the road from the Jolly Roger. We got in late Saturday due to traffic and chose the restaurant as it was the closest to the house. We had fried ravioli, crab cake dinner, fried oyster dinner, sausage and peppers over... More

We went to Jolly Roger for breakfast on the first morning of our stay at Sea Ranch. We were provided with a voucher for 2 free breakfasts as a part of our stay. We ordered and our food was brought promptly. The food was good but not that great. They make their own breads, but when toasted they become very... More

Stopped in for lunch to check out the local vibe of the place, but it looked more run down than old-time. Unfortunately, the food wasn't very good and seemed like it had been left over from yesterday. The chowder and bisque were as thick as pudding and not very tasty. The daily special burger arrived on a mostly-stale bun, and... More

This place looks pretty run down and dismal from the outside - kind of put together and dated but once you open the doors it doesn't take long for all of that to be an afterthought! The Jolly Roger is clearly a local hangout spot for those that live on the OBX. The food is wonderful and the staff is... More

We picked this restaurant because it was described as family friendly. Um, no. It was more like family frightening. The loud language spilling over from the very busy bar side was bad enough that we asked for boxes almost immediately after getting our food. Judging by the scum growing on the inside of the windows which were almost covered with... More

We stopped at the Jolly Roger for breakfast. It is located on the beach road. The atmosphere is fun! Lots of christmas ornaments hanging from the ceiling and also a pirate theme. It's different, but hey, it's the beach! No complaints with the food, I had eggs, bacon, and spiced apples. Reasonably priced. You should try it out!

Went here our first night. It was close to hotel and we didn't want to try and hunt a place after a long drive. The good points of this place is the eclectic interesting decor, the buffalo shrimp appetizer, and wonderful waitress. The bad, a rowdy bar crowd that spilled over into the dining area, bland crab bisque, salad made... More

We've been here several times before with no issues. Food was always good and plentiful, service was fast and friendly. BUT this time was sooooooooo different. We went on the Friday before Valentines day and they had some great specials. We sat down and it took a while before a waitress took our drink order. Then we finally got drinks... More

Where do I begin? First, we got free breakfast vouchers from our hotel. We enjoyed bfast here each morning. It was delicious!! My boyfriend and I each picked a different entree and got an extra plate and split them. The night we got into town, they were offering a special for a 10 OZ prime rib for 9.99. It came... More
