Really good seafood

Just go! Seafood was fresh and delicious. A long lines moves fast. We tried perch, walley, and clams. Eating areas need a bit more attention/cleaning but with the frequent turnover it may be difficult.

if you are interest in FRIED clams and fish. this is the place. Not a great place for vegetarians.. i am not one, but did not find any veggie items. But the fist walleye and perch as well as the clams are great.

My family and I usually love this restaurant, but this time it was just average. It was bland and the fish sill had the skin on it...GROSS!

This place is pretty cool. I am glad to always get a taste of the local food straight from Lake Erie.

We visit Port Clinton every few years and this place remains a favorite. Fresh and local seafood served in a quaint restaurant. We often have to wait for a table, but this visit was quite calm and allowed us to linger and enjoy the atmosphere for a while. No frills, just good food. The kids love watching the fish battering...

If you are in Port Clinton and looking for a great place to get some fish or shrimp I highly recommend Jolly Roger. Don't let the size of the place fool you. It looks like an old Dairy Queen. Spent the day sight seeing with friends and stopped for lunch. It is a very small place and you have to... More

Wasn't sure how well I'd like this place since I've had great seafood at fancier restaurants, but I loved this place! Great seafood for a good price. Definitely will be back again.

Generous portions, reasonable prices other than for beverages, seems to be a local favorite. Tried the walleye and perch and both were great - no fishy or oily taste. Has inside and outside seating.

Stopped for lunch. Parking was not great. Food was decent. Shrimp was a bit pricey. Chicken was tasty. Perch was also tasty. Tarter sauce was different but good.

THE place to go for seafood in Port Clinton. Great service, clean, friendly staff, and the lake Erie perch is some of the best I have ever eaten.
