I had seafood chowder to die for, and Ika Mata that I could have happily dived into. Trader Jack's is a must do for us on any return trip. Greta setting on the waterfront.

Great location and atmosphere, and the food is excellent. Try the Ika Mata - I loved it! The pizzas are also top-notch. You will not get a better view while you eat...saw whales and watched the dive companies head out and dive a short distance...More

Pizza is better than I expected. This is a little over average and not too expensive. Also a beautiful place. Would eat there again.

Sunday is always difficult here. Trader Jacks is open six nights a week with Sunday a day off for the hard working team. Bamboo Jacks is open on Sundays for an awesome dinner and a great selection of drinks.
