This place was dirty, tables and floor sticky and had a stale odor. We ordered the crab cake sandwiches and were disappointed, mostly filler vs. crab. Our waiter was very nice and helpful.

We had heard so much about this place so we decided to try it. We arrived around 1 o'clock and were brought in and sat very near the bar (a Family of 4). The lady at the bar was very drunk, but I know that isn't their fault. The place actually smelled like someone had urinated all over the place,... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. The outside is as eclectic as the inside. Super casual, good menu prices, amazing wait staff, and the food (we had) was sooooo good. I had the best, best, best grilled ham and cheese ever! Food was fast and cooked to order. You can see that the place has been around for a... More

I read the other reviews and can't believe I went to the same place. I went here for lunch. First the positives: great service, nice people. Now for the negatives: food was terrible. Fish sandwich was huge but rubbery. Chowder was nearly inedible. Crab cakes tasted like they had been thawed or reheated. Even the french fries were greasy. The... More

Thought the name and exterior were interesting. Went there for breakfast. Food was OK, not anything spectacular. Place looked a little dirty (inside), and there was trash and lots of weeds in the landscape. Not well maintained.

It has been about six years since we were last at the OBX and always loved Jolly Roger. Had the opportunity to go back this month and made sure we ate a few times at Jolly Roger. The food was as great as I remember and the Breakfast is by far the best I have ever eaten. We look forward... More

My wife and I ate at the Jolly Roger recently and had a great experience! The menu is reasonably priced and offered mostly Italian items, but we came for the prime rib! I can honestly say it's one of the best cuts of prime rib, seasoned near perfect, that I've ever had. The atmosphere at the Jolly Roger was crazy!... More

I have been coming to this place for 15+ years. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but if you want a memorable dining experience with a knowledgeable staff then look no further. This is a local hot spot for food and fun, meet locals anytime of day and night that will lead you in any direction you're looking to... More

Jolly Roger has been a favorite of mine for many years. It is uniquely decorated and has a small gift shop. The prices are reasonable and the portions are HUGE! My only complaint is that it's always cold inside, so be sure to wear a sweater or take a small blanket to cover your lap with. You may feel weird... More
