We ate at the Jolly Roger three times during our 5 night stay in Ocracoke. The open air seating is fantastic. Food is very good; especially the Fish Tacos. This is a very popular restaurant and often busy but you can get a good table later in the afternoon

This year they have expanded to include seating in the former fish cleaning station. The seating area on the dock is a superb idea and a great location. Until we found out, after sitting for 10 minutes, that this area is not served by the wait staff. Who is the brainchild behind this idea! You have to walk back to... More

We have never had a bad meal or bad service here in our many years of visiting JR on vacations. The newly offered jerk shrimp appetizer is really good and is big enough for an entree. We also include the shark bites amongst our favorites. Yes, it can get hot and there are flies, but you are eating on a... More

We wanted outdoor simple dining and this fit the bill. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the blackened tuna. Both were good. You do get a plastic plate but regular silverware . The view is great!

We were looking for a laid back atmosphere on the water. Jolly Roger is that, unfortunately the service is almost non-existant. Looks like a great place if you are a local and now the servers.

Had the tuna sandwich. HUGE piece of tuna grilled to perfection. Coleslaw was very flavorful. Sweet potato fries were dusted in cinnamon/sugar. Great atmosphere, very handsome waiters, good beer selection and a patio deck. Nothing more I could ask for on my vacation!!!

We've been stopping at the Jolly Roger Pub for years and years. I find it relaxing with a great view and a perfect place to have a beer and maybe a little seafood lunch.

The jolly Roger is located right on the lake, so the view is fantastic. The food isn't fancy, but it's very good. The hush puppies are terrific. The drinks are also the proper blend of alcohol and other flavoring. Needless to say, the fish is fresh.
