We’ve been coming here for years. This time the inside dining area was hot. The food was good but seemed to be less than they served last time. Only five shrimp with shrimp and chips meal. The shrimp tasted a bit undercooked. The young woman...More

The place doesn't look like much. In fact it looks like an old run down fast food joint. Once inside we placed our orders and boy, were we impressed. The lobster bisque was quite good and the perch and walleye was great. The really big...More

The perch dinner was fantastic! The only drawbacks here is that there is no table service, and the place is small. You need to get there and find a table first, before you go up to the counter to order. If not, there may not...More

Looking for some good fried walleye or white fish, this is it! All kinds of great seafood plates and baskets at this restaurant. It stays pretty busy, bed ready to stand in line for a few minutes to place your order.

This is a must stop every time we go fishing at Lake Erie. Menu is always consistent. Fish is always properly cooked and never greasy. Great place to meet locals, great place to meet fishing captains and hear the wonderful stories of the day.

The food is really good and the place is always packed. The line may be long but it moves quickly. I really enjoyed the lobster bisque. My husband really enjoyed the fresh perch. Price is reasonable.

Reviews were very good and they were packed when we stopped. Not crazy about layout. Walk in one door across room to place order and then find a seat. Wait on food. Prices a little steep I think for a fish sandwich, waffle fries and...More

We travel to Port Clinton every year and Jolly Roger is always our first stop. The Perch and Chips are my favorite and sometimes add an order of onion rings. If you arrive at 5:00pm be prepared for a line which moves quickly.

No, they do not. Killer perch though. If you're looking for drinks with your dinner, I suggest 1812 or The Orchard. Both are nearby.

I believe there are shirts and, possibly, hats. I think I have seen them at the Vermilion location, not so sure about Port Clinton.
