The Jolly Roger is the beer bar/tap room for the Maritime Pacific Brewing. In Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, the Jolly Roger is well themed for the dock-worker-meets-hipster part of town. Maybe someone will open a ninja-themed brewery across the street...

The JR is small; there are only a handful of tables, and on the Thursday night that my friends and I went we had to stand and wait before we could get one. As others have mentioned, only Maritime Pacific beers are on tap, and the brewery tends to focus on session beers. Even their Imperial IPA is just a regular IPA. We split pitchers of the Pale Ale (Dry Hopped and non- versions are both on tap), the IPA, and the Flagship Red (alt). We also had the sampler and found, unfortunately, that we enjoyed MP's darker beers (Navigator, Nightwatch, Porter) more than the ones we had ordered. Fortunately, the food was better than the beer: my friends had talked up the mahi mahi and oyster sliders, and they were some of the best bar food I've ever had. Go for the light meal, enjoy one drink, and then head to Brouwer's for better beer afterward...

Overall, Maritime Pacific makes passable, if uninteresting beers, and the food they serve in the tap room is surprisingly good. It's worth a look if you're in Seattle, but it's not in the elite of the Seattle beer scene in my opinion.

Went here a couple years ago and had some massive sandwich with beef patty, fried egg, bacon, etc....screamed heart attack. Delicious! Recently back in the area and that item was gone but my buddies and I all loved our burgers and sandwiches. Service and menu selection is good. We shared a pitcher of their seasonal dry hopped IPA, it rocked! Yes, many places to choose from in the constantly growing Ballard / Fremont area. Worth a stop for lunch and beer, at least once.

Was an early Friday afternoon so I got good service and the beers on the flight were good but not great. This should mean nothing to others, as I am not as well versed in West Coast styles as palettes there tend to be different than the Midwest. I did think the IPA was good and their Winter Warmer is a doozy. There is fierce competition in Seattle when it comes to beer... if it was anywhere else I would visit again but in this instance there are other places nearby I would rather visit.

I had never visited the old location and finally hit the new one last night. A reasonably attractive room with a nautical theme (I hate pirates tho), as is fitting for the Fremont/Ballard area of Seattle.

The quality of MP's brews is always top shelf and there was a decent selection of beers, many of which don't seem to make out in the wider distribution that their mainline beers do.

The service I had at the bar was decent, not great, not terrible. I did have to expend some effort in getting the bartenders attention when I had a couple simple questions/request however.

Considering it's location in Seattle, the prices were very fair. I had 2 items off the appetizer menu, Double sliders (which were very good, tasty and filling) and beer-battered, deep fried bacon (which was a bit too bready, I thought. And I only had room for 1 of the 4 strips. I took the rest to go and gave them to friends), 1 pint, 1 small glass and a taster and my total was under $20.

Overall, a worthy visit when your in or near Seattle.
