My wife and I went to the Jolly Roger for the first time, but it won't be the last. She ordered the lasagna and I had the manicotti alla Bolognese. On first bite, my wife said it was the best lasagna she has ever had...More

Breakfast at the Jolly Roger has been a tradition for us since we lived on the OBX in 2005. We still love the unique visual experience this place provides. Our breakfast was wonderful - our waitress would not let our coffee mugs get empty. I...More

The Jolly Roger is our favorite place for breakfast on the Outer Banks. The food is good, the prices are very reasonable and the Bloody Mary's are delicious! The staff has always been friendly and attentive and we have never waited long for our food....More

Jolly Roger is a local fav for family meals out because of the good food, reasonable prices (read: a lot lower than everywhere else, but still great) and fun atmosphere! Bet you'll never see another restaurant with just their sort of indoor decor. Christmas lights...More

Fun character and plentiful good food. The scrambles are particularly good and so are the omelettes. Make sure to have an eye opener too. Sit at the bar and chat with the friendly bartender.

We ate here 2 mornings for breakfast and it was delicious! We had a great waitress but unfortunately cannot remember her name. Needless to say, the service was excellent and a great value! We will stop here again on our next visit.

We were attracted to the strange decor outside and decided to have lunch there. Inside of the restaurant it was very dark. It wasn't very clean looking. I don't remember what we had ordered. What ever we had ordered wasn't memorable. The only good thing...More

Not sure how you could tell it wasn't very clean because you say it was very dark. We strive very hard for cleanliness and currently have a 97.5 health rating. The Jolly Roger is proud of its quirkiness, and as you said, the "STRANGE DECOR"...More

I adore the Breakfast Sampler that Jolly Roger offers. I can never eat everything, but I enjoy tasting everything! The Sampler includes eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, fried apples, grits, and a giant, fluffy biscuit. The Jolly Roger is not the most luxurious place to...More
