Carol Ann Angelos — the longtime owner of the Jolly Roger Restaurant on the Beach Road in Kill Devil Hills — was presented with a prestigious Certificate of Appreciation for her four decades of service to the Outer Banks community during the Dare County Board of Commissioners meeting held on Monday, Dec. 5.

Shortly after relocating from Pennsylvania to the Outer Banks, Angelos took over ownership of the Jolly Roger, which had originally opened back in 1972, but was closed at the time of her arrival in Dare County.

“Having been converted from a gas station and grocery store to a restaurant in 1972, the Jolly Roger is the oldest Italian restaurant on the beach,” said Dare County Board of Commissioners Chairman Bob Woodard as he recognized Angelos with a presentation. “The restaurant had two owners prior to Carol Ann — who had no previous restaurant experience when she purchased the business — yet she has continued its legacy on the Outer Banks for 40 years and made quite a name for herself and her business in the process.”

Woodard highlighted the fact that Angelos’ restaurant is well-known and much appreciated by the Outer Banks community for many things, including its “eclectic decor”— the majority of which has been donated to Angelos over the years — its affordable breakfast, offering Christmas Day dinners when the majority of other restaurants on the beach are closed for the holiday, and for being the go-to spot on the Outer Banks for karaoke.

Angelos’ dedication to the people of Dare County community was also acknowledged at the presentation.

“Carol Ann, [this is] very well deserved — not only for your commitment…to the business aspect of the Jolly Roger, but I’d also like to commend you for being a good steward and a good citizen of Dare County and helping out anyone that’s in need,” said Dare County Commissioner Steve House. “I’ve seen that so many times from you and your restaurant, so thank you so much.”

As he presented Angelo with her certificate, Woodard commented “Thank you, Carol Ann, for running this incredibly unique and beloved business on the Outer Banks. We all hope it’s up and running for residents and visitors for another 40 years!”
