Perch dinner was excellent. Girlfriend enjoyed her lobster bisque. Food was ready quickly. If you're looking for some good perch served quickly in a clean but no-frills place, head to Jolly Roger!

If you want your fish deep-fried and fresh, this is the place. Enjoy local walleye and perch. You can even bring your catch to have it cooked. The jumbo shrimp platter is hefty and the shrimp actually jumbo. The tartar sauce is mustard based and...More

We went because it was touted as the best seafood in Pt. Clinton. We were disappointed because it was all deep fried. A little short on atmosphere. You order at a window and they bring your food out to you. Almost cafeteria style.

No, they do not. Killer perch though. If you're looking for drinks with your dinner, I suggest 1812 or The Orchard. Both are nearby.
