I've been coming to Ocracoke on vacation once a year for the last seven years and since year one, I've made a point to visit Jolly Roger. Its become a tradition. The first few years I visited the food and service were excellent. However, it seems my last three visit haven't been that great. The food doesn't seem as good as it used to be and the service has really gone downhill. Tonight when I visited not only did I have to get up to get my own menu, but also waited at least 10 minutes for my sever to come take my drink order. And I got there at 5:45, so they weren't busy. I ordered the fish tacos and they were just ok. Nothing spectacular. My server didn't return to see if my friend and I wanted more drinks or if the food was ok until he brought the check when we were done. Which is a shame for him and the restaurant because we both would have ordered another beer and dessert had he asked. I guess if you don't care about your job, which it seemed he didn't, then it's not a big deal to you. The restaurant has a gorgeous view of the harbor and fantastic sunset views. If they could just get their food and service back to where it once was, they'd be the perfect place to eat. But I probably will try someplace else on the island next year.
