Seattle Weekly's Description

The home pub of Maritime Pacific Brewing, the Jolly Roger in Ballard has two particularly standout qualities. One is its floor, which has been intricately painted as an aged-looking treasure map (it matches the rest of the bar's nautical pirate decor). The other is, of course, the fresh beer that's brewed in the same building. There are 14 beers on draft-Bosun's Black Porter is usually in demand-and if you can't decide on one, go for the sampler tray of five varieties. Dinner features more than the average brewpub, with hearty fare like German-style bar food like sausage, pork chops, schnitzels, veal and a couple of lighter seafood dishes. The Roger also has a large selection of sliders designed to go with the grog on tap. Adventurous souls can try the beer-batter breaded fried pickle, and lunch offers many a fine deal, with a variety of salads and sandwiches. Come happy hour, it's tough to find a seat among all of Ballard's fine wenches and gentlemen o' fortune, so walk these planks early.

  • Pat M. on 02/03/13

    Mr. Sampson delivers quite a sales pitch.

  • Alex B. on 01/30/12

    Dav is hands down one of the best waiters ever. Sit with him every time if you can!

  • Adam B. on 04/20/11

    Sliders are phenomenal!

  • Chris O. on 05/28/09

    Have a couple microbrews and the Lil Mahi lunch combo. This fish sandwich can really hit the spot!

  • Mike D. on 01/29/12

    Deep fried bacon... Dont diss it until you try it.
