My wife and I have eaten at the Jolly Roger a few times over the past 25 years. Although we hadn't been there for a number of years the place looked exactly as we remembered it from years ago. The perch is best we have ever had! The onion rings were falling apart somewhat but still good and the... read more

I've been going here for 15 years and it is over a hour drive for me. This small restaurant is a local gem in a tourist town. In fact it was a local who recommended it years ago. Expect to wait in line as this place is always busy, but never mind as you advance to the front you will... More

Was there on Friday with a group of icefishermen. Two of the three had fish that was greasy and tasted fishy. Won't be going back

If you want the best perch NW Ohio has to offer then stop by Jolly Roger. Warning they are usually very busy on the weekends during the summer season and for good reason. Perch and onion rings have a nice golden brown corn meal style batter always cooked to perfection. The hush puppy's are also very good and wash down... More

This is one of the best seafood places ever. Prices are fair. Lines are long but the fish is worth the wait. Seating is limited

The perch fish sandwich at this restaurant have always been a good bargain. You just have to remember you can not eat as much as you use to many years. Sometimes when we travel back to the Lake Erie area where we lived for much of our life we forget that we need to limit the intake of fish from... More

This is one of my husband favorite place to eat fresh perch or walleye. I prefer fish baked or grilled, but have to admit that the perch was tasty. We usually hit this spot at least once when we travel to the lake.

I have ate here for years and have never been disappointed. Their perch is the best I ever had and love the onion rings. I just discovered their clams the last two times I was there and they were the meatiest clams I ever had and were delicious also.

Great Lake Erie yellow perch, Walleye, mushrooms and onion rings......pass on the tarter sauce, too much mustard! I must stop if you are in Port Clinton, on the main drag by the lake.
