Super Bowl Party

best super bowl party in the the outer banks

Looking For a place to watch the Super Bowl in the Outer Banks? The Jolly Roger offers the ultimate pregame game and post game experience in our pirate lounge. Why limit yourself to just one TV or one form of entertainment?

Year after year destination for the Super Bowl in the Outer Banks

For over 40 years the Jolly Roger has been part of major Outer Banks events and celebrations. That includes decades of Super Bowl parties. Let us take care of your Super Bowl party in style. Use our lineup of incredible food and service so that you can watch the game and relax whether you have the whole team or are going it solo.

Just need a place to watch the game

It’s fun to watch at home but why watch at your home when you could have the entire Jolly Roger restaurant at your fingertips. Plus enjoy the excitement of the crowd around you watching the game or sit down and enjoy dinner while you watch the game. There is no shortage of options to make Super Bowl Sunday a blast!

super bowl bar to watch the gameSuper Bowl Or No Super Bowl

If you notice our activity calendar  we have something every day of the week all through the day, so there’s lots to do here at the Jolly Roger which is why people have come here for decades. Come to the Super Bowl party and see why people come here even when there is no event on TV because it’s a lot of fun and there’s a lot to do. Things like karaoke also add a fun touch to eating out. We also offer live music in the warmer days. We often have bands on our upper deck which is a comfortable place to enjoy the view and a cool beverage.

Super Bowl Prizes

Why not get something for your hard earned time watching the pregame or the actual game. Win prizes and trips from the Jolly Roger restaurant while enjoying great food. And not just snack food, but our regular menu. Though there is nothing wrong with a playbook of great snacks.

Super Bowl Snacks

No one has snacks like a bar and I can tell you that it’s one giant Super Bowl happy hour waiting for you.

Full menu

Why settle for just wings and just pizza when you can have the whole menu of seafood, steaks, Italian, tapas, sandwiches salads, or any kind of food. Of course some of our most popular items are:

  • Wings
  • Seafood
  • Italian
  • Steak
  • Burgers

1st & 10

From the start of the pregame to the post game Super Bowl MVP award we are the place that has the party going all day and all evening long.

Super Bowl Drink Specials

Great prices on drinks will complement the game regardless of whether your team is in it or not.

Avoid the blitz of Super Bowl Prep

Avoid the Super Bowl blitz of people coming to your house, buying lots of food that you’re not gonna eat, cleaning up before they get there, and cleaning up after they leave. Let us do the blocking and tackling for you without leaving you in a mess.

Super Bowl fumbles

Also you can do all this work and get all the stuff prepped but don’t you want to enjoy the game as well as have fun. The point is the Super bowl is pure fun and if all you’re doing is waiting on people nonstop, how are you going to enjoy the game.

NO Need For A Salary Cap Here

I realize this is a dramatic way to address the fact that doing your own Super Bowl party can be stressful and expensive. Do not spend another dime on decorations, snacks, food, cleaning, or paper products. This extra expense is probably something you do not need after the Christmas season. It is definitely a lot cheaper to have us do it and use that money for a nice dinner with the family or just let us provide you with the fun food while you watch the game.

No Cover Charge

No cover charge to come watch the game.

Dine In or Takeout

Order from us and pick it up. Have us prep whatever kind of food you want to enjoy during the big game and no one will be the wiser.

Our Restaurant Is Open On Christmas

Looking for a restaurant in Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Manteo or Duck that is open Christmas Day? Look no further. For those looking for a restaurant open Christmas, you have come to the right place. For many of us the stress of the Christmas holiday can be overwhelming. There is a lot to do. So why not lighten that load by letting us prepare Christmas Dinner. Nothing could be simpler. You come in, eat, and leave. No shopping for groceries. No worrying about overcooking something. No last minute trips to the grocery store. But most of all…no dishes. And our food will not disappoint. The Jolly Roger has not one but TWO Christmas Day feasts for the entire family. Both are scrumptious and have all the fixins!

Traditional Christmas Day Meal Feast

Even in the world of traditional Christmas meals there are different schools of thought as to what to serve. Some say go classic with a stuffed turkey similar to the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Others go with ham as their Christmas Day Fare. I say why choose. Why not have both. The Jolly Roger Traditional Christmas Feast will have both ham and turkey as well as all the fixins you would expect at your holiday meal. The meal is only $13.95 a person

Italian Style Christmas Meal Feast

Looking for something a little different? Why not go with an Italian style Christmas dinner. We will be serving our Italian stuffed Pork Roulade. The stuffing of this Mediterranean favorite will consist of roasted peppers, fresh spinach, and ricotta cheese. Smothered with marinara sauce, get ready for a taste explosion. To top it off mashed potatoes, a vegetable and garlic bread will accompany this feast.

Map Of Our Restaurant Open Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Feast

Thanksgiving Day is planned at the Jolly Roger restaurant and we are open. This Turkey day holiday bring the whole gang for a Thanksgiving meal that is both

  • Scrumptious
  • Easy with cooking or cleaning

I mean do you really want to cook all day after hours of shopping. And like many people, if you are cooking you are hosting which means cleaning..hours of cleaning. Then after you do all that work you sit down exhausted and have to wolf down the food before stammering back into the kitchen to fetch dessert. That, is after clearing the dinner plates. And then you have to stumble back into the kitchen for hours of cleanup. Or, if you are really brave you can leave the dishes there for hours to harden into abstract pottery creations of food and ceramic.

Lets do a breakdown of that “active” Thanksgiving

  • Shopping prep 1 to 3 hours
  • House Cleaning 2 to 4 hours
  • Food Preparation 4 to 8 hours
  • Cleanup 2-4 hours

Honestly..are you looking forward to that?

Outer Banks AYCE Seafood…

fried shrimp outer banks restaurantOuter Banks AYCE Seafood: Part 1

The Jolly Roger offers great  AYCE Outer Banks seafood for those who just love a lot of a good thing. Landlubbers beware. Seafood specials abound at the Jolly Roger in October!! In fact we have not one but two ayce nights for different seafood specialties. Be warned, there are rules. This is not a feeding trough or a vegas casino or place to settle that bet over who has the highest metabolism.

The two seafood All you can eat (AYCE) blowout nights are as follows:


All you can eat fried oysters for only $19.95 with cole slaw and French fries

The all you can eat is from 6 to 9 in the evening


This is the fried seafood lovers dream night. Fish, Clam Strips, and Popcorn Shrimp make an endless trip out of the kitchen to your plate from 6 to 9pm. This includes French fries and cole slaw for only $14.99

But this begs the question, why are there so many rules for “AYCE”?. Well it got me wondering as well. So I tried to see what has happened in the AYCE area to make it such a treacherous area in terms of actually letting people eat endlessly.


Outer Banks AYCE Seafood :Part 2

The Violators

I pulled the buffet violator stories to see why you have to have buffet rules. Please keep in mind these are not Outer Banks buffets. Most are not even all seafood. But they do demonstrate what happens when a small select group of people are left to their own devices and badly abuse the buffet and their bodies. I pulled these from an article I saw online Here is a quick list of crazy, but true, buffet stories.

Pizza Pounding

One person downed 5 pizzas at an all you can eat pizza buffet.

  • This is not that bad though borderline gluttonous

Bacon Grab

One lady would stuff trays of bacon into a napkin and put it into her purse.

  • I know bacon is good, but save some for everyone else

Prime Rib Poundage

One person downed 7 pounds of prime rib and two pounds of shrimp at a buffet

  • Honestly, did you really enjoy consuming an entire cow? Did you even taste anything while you were woofing it down?

Old Country Buffet Bum

One man would go to an Old Country buffet and stay there for 7 hours.

  • Remember it is an all you can eat not an all you can eat EVER buffet.

The Rule of visiting the buffet (4)Sushi Sacker

One lady took 4 trays of sushi back to her table.

  • HOLD ON. It is an unwritten rule of buffeting, you can stack your plate but you cannot take the whole buffet back to your table. That defeats the purpose. That is closer to room service than a buffet. Part of the buffet experience is going up to a giant line of food choices and having to proportion plate space for maximum effectiveness. You are cheating yourself when you just take whole pans too the table. On a lighter note (a strange choice of words I know) I actually saw this in a cartoon. I thought pan lifting was an exaggeration until I read this story…who knew.

The Rule of visiting the buffet (1)Buffet rebound

One man ate 4 plates of food, collapsed on the floor, and just got up and went to get more

  • Ok-again, it is an unwritten rule. When you collapse, your buffet experience is over. You need to see a doctor after you get fished off the floor for overindulging.


All of these were impressive. It almost sounds like some of these people could win an all u can eat contest. Nevertheless, a buffet is about giving food value to your customer family, not feeding them for weeks to come or causing them to become violently ill.  All crazy stories aside please come enjoy our all you can eat (buffet style) offerings SAFELY on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Halloween In The Outer Banks

Fun Halloween Activities

The Jolly Roger is fun all year round but Halloween Outer Banks Style adds a new wrinkle. Everything is more fun and outrageous when you are in costume. Why just sing karaoke of your favorite star, when you can actually BE your favorite star. Or mock your favorite star and do a parody on stage.

. And the best part is..

Your in costume…no one has to recognize you anyway!

Jolly Roger Halloween Party & Costume ContestOBX Costume Contest

What is the point of going out on Halloween if you cannot wear a costume. Now get rewarded for wearing a costume. At the Jolly Roger costume contest the prize is a trip!


The Only Thing More Scary Than Halloween Is Missing Out On Winning A FREE Trip With The Best Costume. When the clock strikes midnight the judging of the costumes begins. Do not be left out. A little creativity could win you a trip!

Need A Costume Idea

You can always grace the shores of Kill Devil Hills as a pirate above The Jolly Roger! Decked out in full regalia you cannot go wrong with this rogue mariner theme. Grab your eyepatch, bandana and pirate attire and come join us for Halloween. GARRRRRRRRR.

In fact here are a few simple observations of other pirate costumes, ideas etc..

There is no one type of pirate. You can go with a number of different themes that are pirate-worthy. Here are some ideas to “inspire” you..

Movie Pirate: Captain Jack Sparrow

If you want to go all out combining Hollywood glamour with touches of historic influence, this could be for you. I have to be honest, this one looks expensive. Personally I heard Johnny Depp modeled himself after Rolling Stone’s rocker Keith Richards, with a little added costuming of course.

Fashionable Pirate: Will Turner

If you want something a little classier go with Orlando Blooms clothes of the day swashbuckler look. It is not as overstated as the cartoon pirate, but it is the look of a 17th century pirate.

Cartoony Pirate

I like the cartoony caricature pirate. For this you need the tricorn hat and swashbuckler sword. Throw in some fake hair, pirate pants and puffy shirt and you are ready to sail.

Buff Pirate: Captain Vane from Black Sails

If you want to be the stud pirate then this look is for you. Captain Vane (maybe it should be vain) shows that you can sport a six pack and drink a six pack. Personally from what I hear of the actual historical pirate lifestyle there was a lot of all night drinking..but I guess you can still stay in shape, somehow.

Canine Pirate

No you cannot bring your dog dressed as a pirate but I thought this was worth showing.

Modern Pirate: Gordon Gecco

Not a traditional pirate in the maritime sense but these guys represent real pirates who dress nice, storm the boardroom and steal you blind…really.

Adorable Pirate

Yes—too cute not to mention here.
