The taproom is a small, homey place with 10 to 15 tables, a decently sized bar and a single television. This last fact made it difficult to watch March Madness, but it was better than nothing. The pirate theme is not over-done, which is nice, and the floor is a giant treasure map. I wonder if there's a big X on the floor in the brewing room?

Jolly Rogers features a decently sized and very inventive menu. As the name suggests, go for the seafood. Two small sandwiches of either fried Mahi or grilled Ahi tuna are your best bets, or the larger version of either. All of these were greatly enjoyed by my company.

I, on the other hand, felt adventurous and went with the Asian Po'Boy featuring barbecue pork and Portuguese sausage topped with pickled Asian veggies and ginger mustard. It was spicy and tasty, but I would have preferred the fish. I was expecting something like pulled barbecue pork and was disappointed when the meat looked like lunch meat (though I'm sure it wasn't.)

But the star of the meal was the Smokers. These are giant slices of hand-cut, applewood smoked onions hand breaded and deep fried. These are the best onion rings I've ever had, and I love onion rings.

They've got quite a selection of beer here including two nitro taps and two cask-conditioned taps. The sampler comes with your choice of 5 samples of 5 ounces each. I didn't get to try everything, but what I did have ranged from good to great.

The two that stuck out in my mind were the Flagship Red Alt Ale and the Nightwatch Dark Amber Ale. The Flagship wasn't different from other great red's, but it was crisp, malty and hoppy all at the same time. The Nightwatch was very dark (I'm surprised they call it amber) and was velvety smooth with rich, complex flavors all the way through.

The whole restaurant is served by the two bartenders, which means service can be very dicey. If you manage to capture their attention they take care of you, but if you don't you can be forgotten. And careful when ordering a sampler. They really hate taking the time to fill 5 separate glasses. When we told the waitress we were going to hang out and drink after lunch, she said fine as long as you order, "real beers.

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.
