We had breakfast here - our waitress Sandee was a hoot and a pleasure to greet the morning with. We asked her to take a group photo and she brought us pirate hat and eye patches to make the photo even more fun! As you can see, the breakfast portions are PLENTIFUL. And the food was delicious. This restaurant's decor... More

I loved the decorations of this place. It is a mixed pirate and Christmas theme. Like the theme, I have mixed feelings on this place. The food took a long time to arrive about 30 minutes and they only had about half the tables full but it was good. One meal, a lunch steak was excellent but the other two... More

The very friendly staff made an impression on us. Among them , Susan, and Big Mike. The other staff, sadly we did not learn their names, but we ate breakfast there every day of our stay at the Outer Banks. The food was out of this world, especially breakfast. Big, home-made biscuits, pancakes, eggs, a wonderful seafood omelet at very... More

There are advertisements everywhere about jolly rogers but I was disappointed. It was more expensive than I expected & coupon for appetizers was only for a small selection. The restaurant may have been good years ago but is old & worn now. Service & quality of food was good. We were a couple & were seated in a corner table... More

Our last visit there was great, the pot roast and chicken parm was absolutely delicious!! They have a varied menu but specialize in Italian fare. The decor is eclectic... More

We look forward to the friendly staff and delicious seafood each time we visit the OBX. I've had the Cobb salad with chicken two years in a row and it's been amazing both times. The presentation of the salad is beautiful and it is equal to any Cobb salad I've eaten at a 5 star resort. Our children love the... More

Visited for dinner during Spring Break 2017 with my wife and two teenage kids. Found it to be a really nice restaurant with great food and service. Would highly recommend to all.

This is one of those places you either love, or don't. I was with a group where everyone ordered something different, and I had a prime rib special that was priced too attractive to pass up, and it was tasty. Others in the group ordered seafood and weren't impressed. The service was courteous but very slow. We were seated in... More
