"Always enjoy this place, even more so after meeting Randy, the manager. A kind a honest man who offered a one of a kind experience. An awesome way to start our Saturday. Please go eat there! Amazing service from the wait staff as well as delicious food and beautiful, peaceful environment. Thanks you for such a great meal and awesome way to start our weekend!"

"So I must say I came here about 2 years ago and I would have gave it two stars. I returned for a family members function which JR hosted.
I will say everything was amazing. From the first booking phone call to the setting up of event and most of all extraordinary service day of the event. Oh wait the food and portions were amazing!!!!
We chose coconut shrimp, chicken Marsala or penne. Everything was amazing the taste was fresh and very generously served. The view is breathtaking. This is an older original restaurant but very cozy and again the location can't get better. OUR two personal servers for 30 people were amazing, so helpful and dos anything they could to make our party perfect! Thank you all!"

"I take my mother here a few times a year. We love this place. It has a nice, tranquil, atmosphere, right on the waterfront, at the harbor. We usually have the fish and chips. It is excellent. The fish is light and fluffy, with a real price of fish, not just fried bread crumbs. They serve it with thin crispy, but not too crispy, french fries and the best coleslaw I have ever eaten, not smothered in mayo. The staff are all very friendly. Our regular waiter, I believe his name is Feliciano, is extremely friendly and always gets our order to us correctly and in a timely manner.
This last visit we tried their onion rings. They were wonderful. Served with a very nice presentation, different to any I have seen. They also had a very light breading on them and were not very greasy. A little on the pricey side for onions rings, but we would still get them again."

"Love this place, best happy hour and small plate specials in the area. The full menu and Sunday brunch are also to die for. It's our secret getaway (We're locals and this is pleasantly un-touristy) Everyone working here is fantastic and friendly. They even pour a nice cocktail (not light). The decor has recently been updated and it's wonderful. Give me an awesome view of the harbor, dimly lighted surroundings (in the evening), quiet ambiance, and I'm home, Thank you Jolly Roger for always welcoming us."

"6 of us came for lunch when they were busy hosting a large bridal shower. 3 people had the chicken tostada salad and they all gave it high ratings and would definitely order it again. I had the lunch special prime rib sandwich which was ok. Another had angel pasta with shrimp and loved it. This is our favorite restaurant in the harbor."

"Love this place. Randy the manager is as helpful and nice as can be. We had a banquet there this week and everything was perfect as usual. We have had our Christmas luncheons there for past 7 years and have never been disappointed. We always request Gretchen as our lead server as she is better than excellent if there is such a thing. Nothing but raves about the food. Top it off with beautiful views out the windows. Did I mention I loved this place."

Carole STemecula CA

"Awesome experience!! The view is gorgeous, staff super friendly and the food was great! It was a bit pricey, but that was to be expected with the location. Very kid friendly with the best kids' menu/coloring activity I've seen... Only a parent could understand the immense value in a preoccupied child in a restaurant. We originally had a late lunch at Jolly Roger and later that night ordered desserts to go for our hotel room. Even ordering take out was a pleasant experience!"
