We have been eating at Trader Jack's for years. Its a great place with plenty of room for private parties. The food is always good, the atmosphere is always pleasant. The patio is a great place to gather in the summer, you can even pull your boat into one of their docks and enjoy dining in your favorite summer attire.

We eat at Trader Jacks atleast once every few weeks! The food is always delicious, you have to try the lobster bisque,, it is amazing ! The best part of Trader Jacks are the servers, always friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a fantastic experience. Try it,, I promise you wont be disappointed!

We were taking a ride along the lake on a beautiful November day and saw Trader Jack's Riverside Grille. Looked good, right on the river with a large patio. An extensive menu from perch to burgers and fantastic looking salads. The lobster bisque was delicious with nice pieces of lobster. Price was good too! If we are ever out that... More

Quite the lovely experience. The food was any where from burgers, salad, to sea food. Healthy size servings. The service was personal- and it seemed allot of the... More

We've been driving the place for years...and then a nurse at CC gave it a terrific rating. We went last Saturday ... around 4:30 ... I mention this as I think the timing has something to do with our service, etc. Nurse raved about the Lobster Bisque .... we ordered it .... it's a thick caramel colored cup of mashed... More

We are from Akron and were looking for a local place to eat fish after a trip to Holden Arboretum and Mentor on the Lake. We stumbled on Trader Jack's because we heard they had a great patio and it was a beautiful day. Enjoyed Lake Erie perch and a couple of beers on the patio. The perch was fantastic!... More

We live close by and have had lunch and dinner and are happy with the food and service. Their lobster bisque soup is awesome and paired with one of their tasty sandwiches makes a great meal. We have had their clam bakes offered for a limited time in the fall and it is very good. They can also accommodate groups... More

It was a hot day, so there were tables available outside since many folks started outside and then asked to come back in. There's a covered patio as well as a patio with umbrella tables that overlook the river. There were only 2 boats that went past in the 1-1/2 hours we were there on a Saturday late afternoon so...
