Waterfront location

Good place to get local, fresh caught fish. They have evening entertainment and a good atmosphere. Within walking distance of most everything in the village.

Our first time here, and we loved it! Beautiful views, food was great, and our server, Jeremy was awesome! Loved the low-key atmosphere. There was live music, and you can't beat the views. I had the fish tacos, which were amazing! Can't wait to return to Jolly Roger next year!

We L-O-V-E-D this spot. Ran in to jump out of the rain and found a gem. Our server Jeremy was great and the rum runners - fantastic! We enjoyed blackened tuna bites, shrimp nachos and clams. Next time we need a hotel so we can stay and drink a few more rum runners!

Sorry to report that Jolly is not so Jolly for me anymore! Two of us ordered the fish special with veggies of the day and when it arrived our fish was floating in a lot of liquid! It was from the overdone squash! The wine is always served warm! It's a shame because they have a great location on silver... More

Four of us went for lunch and we sat outside so we could look and the marina and watch the sea gulls and pelicans. We ordered a Nacho appetizer and for $10.99 it was a very small portion. Two of the people ordered the Crab Quesadilla Special for $11,99. Both felt it tasted more like fish than crab. I got... More

Drinks at $10 in a small plastic souvenir cup definitely overpriced. Great location with fantastic view. Didn't have food, so don't know the quality.

The food is good, but the combination of the outdoor seating right on the water, fresh seafood and live entertainment at night is what makes this place special. Ride your bike on over and enjoy! Remember, nothing on the island is "late night".

Food has always been good, and today was nothing different. I had the local catch sandwich, which was bluefish, and coleslaw. The slaw was different, but I liked it. It was a bit runny with a lot of liquid, but the taste was good. I love the atmosphere, and the staff is always nice.

So, this is a mixed review, portions were great, others were not. We went to the Jolly Roger last night for dinner, they offered Taco Tuesday, with beef tacos - no substitutions. Which is okay, but in retrospect should have hinted to me to order something that requires little skill to cook. As a huge fan of tuna steak, I... More

We were there on Taco Tuesday! Very tasty and reasonably priced. I had the fish taco. It's a specialty of the restaurant and I loved them. The beautiful sunset is a bonus!
