Nice

My boyfriend and I wanted to get out of town for a bit, so we decided to take a road trip to Port Clinton on a drizzly day. The food was great. It was a bit overpriced for what we got, but still great food.

Wonderful, inexpensive fun place to eat. If you don't like fish there are a limited number of other dishes you can order. Everything is good.

Eat here often. No frills just good lightly breaded perch and walleye. Killer onion rings! Always busy but service is fast. Eat here several times per month!

My husband and I stopped for lunch on a roadtrip, and we're very favorably impressed. I had read many reviews and it lives up to our hopes. We got walleye sandwiches and fries/onion rings and they were superb. The sandwiches were thick chunks of fish and served with special (house?) tartar sauce, and the onion rings tasted like they had... More

This restaurant is always busy when I stop there. I guess people really love the taste of fresh Lake Erie Perch. I got the perch platter this time with onion rings. It was very tasty. They also serve Fresh Walleye too. They have many different selections for you to choose and you can get sides like cole slaw, fries or... More

This was different than expected. We thought it would be a sit down meal, however that was our fault for not checking first. My husband wanted sea food. He did like his fried walleye. I had clam chowder which was good the wait staff was very friendly. I hesitated ordering fried oysters and the waitress said I could have a... More

Good perch, but average walleye. The shrimp are great. The oysters are mediocre. Great onion rings and waffle fries. The place reminded me of a picnic area, but that's okay. Fair price for good fast food! It is by the Lake!

We travel to Port Clinton several times a year just to eat at Jolly Rogers! The perch was fantastic this visit! The shrimp is always great!! The place was packed as usual but we didn't expect that at 1:30 in the afternoon.

My girlfriend and I stopped in on Oct 5th and had the perch and walleye sandwiches and both were good. I thought I'd try the lobster bisque and what a mistake that was. First of all the girl behind the counter asked if I wanted it in a bread bowl and I said sure. Then she asked another employee why... More

My wife and I really enjoy this place. Had lunch here last week, the perch and walleye are great. Service is almost always fast and friendly. Really enjoy the cole slaw and always get a side of hush puppies too!
