The Jolly Roger is right in the heart of Ocracoke and you will find yourself wanting to stop by just due to the liveliness and proximity to the Silver Lake area. But it was very poor with regards to service and food, I would highly doubt it would be profitable if it did not have the location going for it.
We actually stopped here twice, once in the early afternoon and once in the evening. The afternoon visit we were waiting to parasail and thus passing the time. It took forever to get service, and when we did get it, it was far from friendly. Not rude, but not friendly either. Just someone taking an order, no apology for lengthy wait, etc.
The drinks were way overpriced, double digits for Aristocrat-brand liquor drinks. What?! So terrible in the value category there.
In the evening they had some live music, so we decided to stop again and this time try the food. It was OK, nothing special. Poor for Ocracoke standards and for what price you were paying.
Again my overall assessment is the location is how this place makes money, because it certainly is not the great value or great service.
