The Jolly Roger Restaurant has been part of the Outer Banks landscape since 1972, and for good reason: It’s fun, affordable and unique.

Owner Carol Ann Angelos prides herself on the casual eatery’s reputation for great food and its eclectic décor — a mix of pirate paraphernalia, aquatic-themed murals and posters from old Hollywood. The seemingly random decorative choices are actually a great advertisement for what is in store for diners: The menu is just as eclectic as the décor.

Craving an open-faced roast beef sandwich? It’s on the menu.

More in the mood for crab legs, or a chicken quesadilla? No problem.

Dining out with a group, and yearning for a fried seafood platter, but one friend wants pizza, another wants prime rib and yet another is all about a plate of home-style lasagna? Jolly Roger has it all — and then some, including its famous breakfast specials and early bird specials.

The popular eatery also serves up plenty of fun away from the dining table, like trivia night, karaoke night and more.
