I used to come in semi-regularly with a girlfriend from work for chicken strips, beer, and a few games of pool or some time on the megatouch. Always found it to be a good time. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly and their are often live bands. Haven't been in for a while. Though I did stop in to meet a few friends randomly about a month ago and found that there was a reggae band performing, pleasant surprise! They were a great act, ended up staying a little longer then planned to enjoy the music.

Basically, this isn't a place I make it out to often, but am always looking forward to it when I do, and leave glad that I came.

Thank the maker they don't allow smoking anymore or I'd never be able to taste all of this mayonaise and grease on my fish batter. Plain and simple, this place is low on the quality scale all around - I dare not imagine when the last time the walls were scrubbed -but at least it doesn't tout itself as anything more.

Come get bloated on bad beer and pub food, then leave feeling sluggish with indigestion. It'll be a hoot for the whole family!

Pros: It's in a good area

Cons: Doesn't sell Tums

This place is nice. it's your standard bar, complete with cheap beer, greasy food, and plentiful TVs. It's a good place to watch football, and it's close and convenient to Hawthorne and Belmont.

But we all went there from school and had a great time. The food was okay and the atmosphere as i said was different. Close to work and the people were all smiles and friendly. It was an okay place to party.

What can you say about the Jolly Roger? It's a cheap, threadbare and dependable dive bar that serves up strong drinks and oversized portions from their extensive food menu. Patrons run the gamut from aged barflys to rowdy frat boys to low-key locals. Pool, video poker, DJ nights and a comfortable atmosphere round out the Jolly experience.

my first experience with jolly roger was in hawaii. oh my goodness! to be seated next to the water where the fish is caught fresh,prepared and brought to your table is amazing! the staff is wonderful-you can tell that customer service is a priority with the jolly roger people.

JR is a nice place to see some great live bands, check out D3, The Manimals, or the Quick and Easy Boys down there for a great time. Space is limited unless you grab a table or a bar spot. Drinks have been known to be decent there mostly because the bartender is only responsible for POURING drinks. That's right, you have to order from a waitress for a drink, and that is the stupidest thing I've ever encountered.

Hi M. Saw you in the Stars. You Knew What was best and You Still Inspire!

Be Happy and know You're Special.

I hadn't known for some time, but we're friends with tension in that space up there where people interact...

Thanx for being my friend a lifetime ago, it helped me, and WAS fun, when all intentions were so pure, the icy lake, the Apple, the first look in the Hall @ NCS. Only the positive associations remain for me.

Profound Psychic Long Distance Good Will Connection...

I KNOW IT! :)

Agreed?

Take Care.

Pros: Fun, Beautiful, Satisfying, Wonderful, Inspiring, Risk Taker, Silly, Still Fun in my dreams..

Cons: Just purged all my stupidity and weakness right there, never had the chance to show who I really was. The wisdom via regret was tough, but necessary.

It'd been at least 6 years since I'd been to the JR. But on some random Sat. night a few months ago, a group of friends and I decided to stop in for a "quick pitcher". Yeah, right! With Earl and the Regae All-Stars on hand - our quick stop turned into closing down the ship! It's amazing the musical talents that emerge after only a few shots and a couple pitchers. Too bad the harmonica isn't more widely appreciated! Rock on Jodi!

Tacos on Tuesday rock and no parking hassle. Bartenders, waitresses all are friendly fast service, and no matter what game you want to watch, theyve got it.

Pros: parking, good people

Cons: no excuses to miss a game

I love this place! Good service, stiff drinks, and awsome happy hour deals ($2.00 a plate). I live in the neighborhood and this place never fails to save me from the crowded downtown scene on the weekends and not to mention fulfill my latenight food cravings. They play sports on the multiple tvs and they have a happening reggae band on the weekends. Deffinate must see for all the dive bar lovers in portland, come check it out when they renovate and expand in a few months.

The Jolly Roger has agreed to allow all Indiana alumni to watch Hoosier basketball on the big screen for the 2004-2005 season. The support for our group from the management has been great - and the full menu - from coffee and eggs to sandwiches and beer - means everyone is happy whenever the game is on. Come out and join us! It's a great place to hang out.

When Jolly Roger left its orginal location at 39th and Powell, I was worried about where one of my favorite fish & chips places was going. I needn't have worried, however, the "new" location is even closer to my neighborhood!
The food here has always been great, as far back as I can remember, and, unlike most businesses, refuses to give in to the horrible Change Monster. The same sign out front, and decorations in the bar are still there.
I always go to the restaurant, though, the bar is always too full of 'regulars' to be truly enjoyable. The basic fish and chips, and deep-fried mushrooms are my faves.
