“Stay away!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

The food was less than ok. Steak was blah. Thank goodness for A1 sauce. I rather eat at mcdonalds. The view is great, but overall it wasn't worth the meal.

“An OK Place”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Service was good, but the seafood wasn't anything special. The cocktail lounge on second floor has nice views of Oceanside Harbor. Restaurant was just OK, with the feeling the place could use a deep cleaning!

“Great view, decent calamari appetizer, decent cioppino, ok service”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Food was drab and bland for the price. We had coupon, but even with that, we feel the value was poor. Freshness was questionable. Everything tasted canned. Three of the clams/mussels in my dinner were unopened, but the shrimp was fine. The sauce for the pasta tasted gluey.

Our waitress did a reasonable job under the circumstances. This seems to be a management problem.....hope it isn't the whole chain.

This would be a great location for a fine restaurant that would attract repeat busines from locals rather than just unsuspecting tourists.

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Found myself near this Jolly Roger on a business trip and went in remembering the great food and great ambiance of years ago - found neither. The only made to order items appear to be salads and fried foods. Had the cioppino, which may be one of the only recipes from the original great selection. Sadly, the chain has been bought and gone the way of the microwave. The cioppino was fair. It might have been very good if it hadn't been way over-salted. The present owner's have never heard of presentation. The restaurant wasn't busy, but I had to go in search of my wait person, 5-6 minutes after finishing my so-so meal, to get my bill. I found her kibbitzing n the kitchen with another wait person rolling napkins, possibly hoping "If you roll them they will come."
