We had the perch boat and perch sandwich meal. Both were excellent, and the onion rings were pretty good too. Not too much breading, just the way I like them, and a decent tartar sauce also.

I had been here before but not my brother. I took him and he was amazed at how good the lake perch was. He said it was the best he ever had. He also had shrimp and they were huge! I highly recommend this place. They close for a few months in the winter but they had just reopened at... More

Both perch and walleye sandwiches or dinners are wonderful. The fish is not overwhelmed with heavy coatings and the waffle fries, or my favorite onion rings, make a meal. You should also try their shrimp salad with poppyseed dressing....a meal in itself. It has crisp lettuce, cooked shrimp and fruit. My favorite since it was first served at The Garden... More

Their Perch filets are wonderful. The onion rings are also good. I just wish they served beer which would go so good with the Perch and onion rings.

We have been coming here off and on for 30 years. The perch and walleye are really the best. Also great waffle fries and onion rings. I was so glad that we decided to stop before they closed for the season.

Jolly Rogers is highly recommended by locals....which is saying a lot. And they are SO right. Amazing fresh seafood, best hushpuppies in the world, and REALLY good onion rings. You will not be disappointed and you will hardly be able to wait to go back for more. :) Walleye, perch, shrimp ... and chicken for those in the family who... More

Always fresh. It's so good that it should be a sin. I skip the fries and just go for the perch boat. Heck it's even good cold out of the cooler.

This place did not disappoint. We had the perch and the walleye and both were prepared great. The food here is fried perfectly - not greasy or oily. The clam chowder was excellent and we also enjoyed the hush puppies and waffle fries. Wish we lived a little closer to visit more often.

It was 3 pm on a Sunday afternoon when my wife and I pulled into the last parking spot in their lot. Needless to say this is a very popular local place to eat. It is a four hour drive for us so we only stop when we are in the area. We last ate here two years ago. We... More
