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.

We're spending a week in the area and love trying to find local joints... and Jolly Roger definitely does the bill :) The Lake Eerie walleye is super tasty! I'm not a fan of chewy, fishy fish - theirs is tender and flaky and yummy! My husband had the shrimp and chips... massive shrimp! Really big portions, good food, and... More

I fond this place online and figured it would be a good place to try out. We also saw billboards for it once we got to Port Clinton. It is hands down the best restaurant in Port Clinton. The fish is so good and fresh, they coat/batter it right in front of you! I like how they have the ordering... More

We ate there after a recommendation by the owner of the condo we were renting. I did expect it to be a 'proper' restaurant, rather than a fast food type place, but wasn't disappointed with the food. The Perch, Walleye & fries were plentiful and pretty tasty, but sitting outside we had to contend with the odd fly also wanting... More

We stayed only one night in Port Clinton during our "Circle Lake Erie" vacation. After taking a good look around town we chose another RoadFood website recommendation - the Jolly Roger Seafood House - another decent choice. Joan liked her walleye; I liked my perch. I am told that these two species constitute the majority of fish harvested from Lake... More

We have driven past this place many times since coming here to vacation but had never stopped. Wish we had stopped sooner. We didn't realize it was a fast food place. They have inside and outside seating. And after lunch you can probably find a place to go down to Lake Erie and sit down and breathe in the fresh... More

I was told the locals like to eat here, so I tried it while vacationing near Port Clinton. The fish really is fresh, and well prepared. The staff is friendly, which is a plus. There is a large patio if you want to remain outside. Just keep in mind, this is a very casual place. The décor is not too... More

Some friends recommended this restaurant. They said they eat here every time they're in the area. I'm not a big fan of fish, but if it's breaded or battered and mild, I'll eat it. My family and I decided to give it a try. It's a small restaurant. You order at the cash register and they give you a number.... More

Fantastic fried walleye and hush puppies at a great location right off the water. Just what we were craving on our trip to the lake!
