I wrote about Jolly Pirate a while ago, but I must say it has become our "go to" donut shop! Friends take boxes home after visiting! Go for the "klunkers" (sometimes called "globs"). They're doughy, sweet, rich and delicious! A few other recommendations: The toasted coconut, the dunkin' stix, peanut bowties with chocolate or maple, and their famous long johns.... More

Just goes to show you if it’s not broken - don't fix it.... No matter what I go in to get, Brownies, Cream horns, Fancy donuts, or just a box full of donuts and a coffee I get the best value... Prices are so reasonable and it’s not a chain so service and quality is important to their success. Everything... More

This place reminds me of my childhood. This was one of the original donut places, and sadly only a few remain. I've never had a bad donut from Jolly Pirates, but my favorites are the bowties....a classic fancy!

We come here once in a while just to get a few donuts and they are always so good. The service lacks a bit, but since we always just take our donuts to go we haven't had to deal with it too much. All in all, delicious.

Delicious! We were just driving through, but went out of our way to try this place, definitely worth it! Cute town too, I'd definitely stop again if I get the chance.

I honestly do not grasp what all the hype is regarding this place is. The food was well below average, even the coffee wasn't good.

This location was soon becoming my favorite donut place and I had been going to this location once a week for over a year. This past October, I ordered a dozen various donuts when I found a mouse dropping on one of my donuts. I threw out the donuts and had not been back since.

I know it is a chain, but it feels like a home town place. While this is not my favorite donut, it is my favorite in Grove City and my young son LOVES it. I do wish that they did more shifts of donuts because eating there after 2 or so, you run the risk of getting stale donuts and... More
