We were visiting Kitty Hawk N.C. for our Anniversary. We read good reviews on the Jolly Roger and wanted to give it a try. Very unusual decor on the outside, but we continued to go into the restaurant. Very Colorful place inside! There is a bar inside with live entertainment, we were seated in the dining area but could still hear the music, which was nice. Never been to a place like this before, little eclectic, a bit of this and a bit of that but we considered it the "charm" of the place. I ordered the Chicken Saltimbocca, it was fantastic! So delicious, chicken topped with Prosciutto & provolone in sage butter sauce with mushrooms and tomatoes served over linguini, it came with a salad too :) My husband got the Seafood Lasagna which he enjoyed very much. Layers of homemade Lasagna stuffed with scallops, shrimp, & crabmeat served with their own shrimp bisque sauce! Yummy, also served with a salad.Very generous portions. No room for dessert. Hostess and waitress very friendly, it was a very enjoyable experience.

We enjoyed the Fish, Shrimp, and Clam Strip Special on Wednesday, the Prime Rib Special on Friday and the Lobster Mac and Cheese Specials on Saturday. Joel was our waiter Wednesday and he was awesome. The seafood special was delicious and so plentiful. There was enough to take home for another meal. Friday, we had a party of 6 including a 2 year old and a 6 year old. Happy was our waiter and he was excellent. He was attentive and so very good with the children. The prime rib was outstanding--so good that we are going back for prime rib this Friday night. Our experience was so positive, our party of 6 went back Saturday night for the lobster mac and cheese. Of course, we called ahead and asked for Happy to be our waiter. Again, I can't say enough about the delicious food. The she crab soup was excellent both nights. Hats off to the chef and kitchen staff. We look forward to The Jolly Roger each time we're at the OBX. We ended our last vacation, after Thanksgiving week 2017, at the Jolly Roger for our departing breakfast. Our party of 11 left the beach full and happy.

On recent visit to the OBX we were lucky to stay close to the Jolly Roger and went for dinner there our first night. We had a good time and returned later in the week.
Service was very good and the food excellent.
Go hungry because the portions are generous.

Although the out side showed some wear, the inside was nice. We ate here twice. One time I got food to go, the second we ate in. The take out was on the recommendation of the manager Andrea. Two different seafood dishes that we had never had but were absolutely delicious. The second time we got the seafood platters, one grilled and one fried. They were delicious. The staff was so friendly-not only our server but the other gentlemen working that evening as well kept coming by and talking and joking with us. Not enough to disturb us, just enough to make it enjoyable. It was great food and a friendly place. When I go back to the Outer Banks I will be going back to the Jolly Roger.
