On our way to a baseball game, we enjoyed an excellent lunch! Lovely deck seating with beautiful views of the bay complimented our meal! Would recommend the garden salad, fish and chips, and chowder- all were excellent! Great, friendly service along with good food makes for a destination we will definitely frequent again!

The flavour of the food matched the wonderful view. A wonderful restaurant, not posh or grand but full of character.

Sailor Jacks serves great, well prepared, fresh and perfectly seasoned food. Primarily a fish house, at least that's all I have ever ordered. Cudo's to the wait staff who act as pro's, friendly, helpful, with just the right amount of attentiveness. A great experience.

I thought it was delicious and for some reason, I hadn't seen it on the menu before. We've eaten here countless times for the past 38 years, even when it was another... More

Oysters Rockefeller were the highlight plus the sunburst salad. Attentive staff and great view made for a memorable night. Ask for the first floor if you want to talk, the top floor has the bar and is quite loud.

This is a great place for a wonderful bowl of clam chowder on a rainy or foggy day. Have been here several times and it's never been a disappointment. The bar is upstairs and has a relaxed atmosphere that is very welcoming.
