One of our favorites

My family and I have visited the OBX several times and this is one of our favorite places for dinner. It has a fun, eclectic pirate theme inside (fun for kids). The food has a mix of traditional seafood fare, but is more known for their Italian dishes. My favorite is the chicken parmesan. Can't... read more

First day of vacation we went here for breakfast while waiting to get into our rental. We were not disappointed! Good food and lots of it. Went back later in the week for drinks and dinner and once again were not disappointed. Lots of atmosphere too!

We've been going to the Jolly Roger since 1990, and the staff and service NEVER fail to disappoint; whether it's breakfast or anything else, we are made to feel like we're "part of their family", and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Keep up the GREAT work, Carol Ann and staff!!!

We were seated. The seats had some type of dried food on the back. Then an unknown yellow substance dropped from the ceiling onto the table. The whole place needed a good scrub. We had already ordered our food so we asked if we could leave and they let us. The health department needs to inspect.

Found this restaurant online & the reviews looked good and the menu looked yummy. We decided to try it out and were glad we did! Our food was great, the "Jolly Delight" appetizer was delicious. My husband who isn't really a crab person could have eaten it all himself. Our server was very friendly and the hostess was super nice... More

The clam chowder was thick and not very tasty...we did send that back and it was taken off bill. My husband's dish however was excellent. Probably would visit again..but it would not... More

I had the Fettuccine Alfredo and added Scallops. I would have to say, these are the best scallops I have ever eaten and I eat scallops a lot, year round. Atmosphere different than anywhere else I've ever been. Service was excellent. Everyone in our party was pleasantly surprised.

Good fun with many reasonably priced choices on the menu. Friendly wait staff. My kids enjoyed the complimentary pirate patches and cardboard hats. Italian food seems to be the specialty but there were other choices available. Called ahead bc we had a large group with us.

Good Food Great Service! Avoid sitting near the exit in the back. We had a table with a diner at the end- terrible. Uncomfortable place in the path of the exit. Spinach Salad with Hot Crab- Fabulous!
