A December beach visit.

My wife & I took spent several days in the Outer Banks in mid-December. We had a delightful breakfast at Jolly Roger. This was our first visit to the restaurant--but will not be our last. Service was exceptional. The food came out fast--and was delicious and plentiful. Hats off to Jolly Roger!

We ate here as the complimentary breakfast from our nearby hotel. Plenty of food! A bit greasy, either from margarine or excess butter, which is very typical of breakfast meals. Their homemade raisin bread was pretty good. Pirate themed -- you feel like you were eating in the bottom of a ship or a darkened tavern in some distant port.

Jolly Roger has a supreme breakfast menu....costs run a mear $3.99 for two eggs, hash browns and home made bread/bisket , or you may order bacon, sausage, bisket/gravy, corned beef hash for a more expensive meal..They offer an amazingly broad breakfast menu... Lunch and dinner menus are also extensive offering seafood, beef, pasta...and wonderful salads.

You could write a book about this place.....after one visit. Eclectic barely even scratches the surface. Everything in there reminded me of taking beach trips with my mom in the 70's and I loved every piece of it. Will definitely go back every time I visit OBX

Loved their breakfast especially the omelets and homefries are great too! Dinner was also very good and you can get a lot of Italian dishes here but also seafood. Lots of choices!

Ate there on Saturday night and they have a 2-1 Pound lobster special for $19.95. This is for one order. Sounds good, right? Well, the lobsters were steamed and were overcooked & rubbery, even the tails were hard to chew. They did not cut open the back or belly of the tail and it was hard to eat with all... More

Hadn't been here, probably in close to 20 years, but the real estate agent we were with recommended it as a good "sit down to eat" place in the off season. She wasn't wrong! There were 4 of us and 3 of us ordered the lunch specials. For me, it was the reuben sandwich and the other 2 got the... More
