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.

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 french... More

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.

My wife and I checked this place out. It's not a very big place but the food is amazing! The fresh perch is the best but their shrimp is pretty tasty as well. Great food!!

In September 2014, my wife and I ate dinner here one evening while staying at a nearby hotel. I ate the wall-eye fish sandwich platter because this is one of the fish caught locally and I recall it was very tasty when I had tried it here several years ago. I was not disappointed in the least. It was done... More

One of the few places that serves locally caught perch and walleye. Nothing fancy, picnic tables and outdoor seating. Tasty fish!

We always try to stop at Jolly Roger when in the area or sometimes go there just when we are hungry for perch. This is not a health food place as most everything is fried, nor is it fancy, but if you like yellow lake perch you won't find any better. The fish comes out hot with just the right... More

We travel 40 minutes once a month to partake of perch. The breading is light and just right. We haven't found mushrooms anywhere else that can beat those at Jolly Rogers.
