We have eaten at this restaurant 15 years. It has the finest prepared seafood we have ever eaten throughout the world. I love the shrimp platter and my wife loves the blackened flounder. Calamari is our appetizer of choice. Portions are large.shrimp lightly breaded. Only 10 tables so come in and wait your turn. Many other types of seafood as... More

Great little seafood restaurant. Open Thursday to Saturday only. 1100 to 1430 and then 1600 to 2000. There is about 24 seats so expect a wait, but the food and service is worth the time. Fresh catch of the day, specials, platters, etc. The service is very good. Will sure to return. No reservations taken.

Although we have not eaten here, we have purchased fresh fish. Beautiful display on ice with so many selections. We didn't even have this much to choose from when we lived in Florida.

Thought the decorations were fun, staff friendly. I ordered sea bass in a keywest sauce...the portion(appeared to be 2-3 ounces in weight) was swimming in a plate of sauce.very spongy in texture. This did not compare to the fillets displayed as you walked in. Felt a little ripped off!

We love going to this "hole in the wall" to eat. The food is always good, the wait staff are always friendly and always go out of their way to get what ever you need to make your meal more enjoyable. They don't serve alcohol, but you are welcomed to bring your own. Go next door to the attached Marathon... More

Long long wait on a Thursday night. Food is fresh and have an amazing selection for such a SMALL place. Little warm inside on a hot July day as well. Wife and son really enjoyed their meal, scallops and triggerfish. My amberjack was overcooked unfortunately but sides were good. Will try again for sure if in area.

When we moved to Ellijay our neighbor shared this hidden jem so we payed it forward to our new neighbors. Shared an appetizer of clams. They were excellent. I ordered the fried oysters which were small but cooked perfectly. Hubby had the grouper. We will be coming back!

Jolly Roger's is very small, they do not take reservations so go early. Great staff and the food is wonderful. A different and fun place to get away from the chain food restaurants.
