Place was packed. Lots of folks wanting to get in on St Patty's day. The atmosphere is great and the people are super happy and friendly. The shrimp was very fresh and tasted great. Crab cakes were ok.. pure crab which is nice but needed a good sauce with it. Beyond that. Would recommend again.

My wife and I recently had a great stay at the Sea Ranch Resort and while there the receptionist recommended a local restaurant called the Jolly Roger. A very short drive on North Virginia Dare Trail (Mile Post 6 ¾ on the Beach Road) from the hotel we arrived at a very weathered, 70s dated building that looked very questionable.... More

We were in the Outer Banks for several days and headed to the Jolly Roger for Breakfast. Spot on soft poached eggs two mornings in a row!! Southern Grits and thick raisin bread. Home fries, homemade with eggs and toast cooked to perfection. We thought the variety of jellies were more than we had ever seen. We returned for dinner... More

Very authentic place. Recommended by locals. Interesting, different interior design, friendly staff and the most important food was great. Big portions for reasonable prices.

We wouldn't eat here so often if I was bad. It's always interesting and never had a bad dish. Wait staff are typically very good. It's often busy but the parking lot is large albeit sometimes problematic. It has a pirate theme and is decorated for holidays. We had a variety of seafood but the crab cakes rated a B.... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us! I wonder why our crabcakes were rated a B with you since you didn't say. I am glad to hear the rest of your party enjoyed their dishes, and am always glad to hear that you had great service! Come see us again soon!!! -Susan More

Stopped in on the recommendation of a local and was not disappointed! Some of the reviews mention an eclectic theme to the decor--pirates and Christmas decorations! But if anyone has eaten at The Bubble Room at Captiva Island, FL, this kind of on the same vein. We both had the specials of the night--hubby had the prime rib special with... More

We have traveled to the OBX area for many years and we always try new restaurants in the area. This year the Jolly Rodger was on our list. So first of all the building is old, run down, kinda odd decor inside and probably one of the coolest places I have ever been to in years. We tried lunch first... More

You may have to wait for a table but the service is quick. The food always delicious. We come for breakfast here every June.
