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...

If you are thinking about coming here , do not drive by. It's a must stop restaurant ! We've been driving past here for years. Not sure why but now we stop by at least every other week! It's a few notches above the average bar food. Combined with super friendly and great looking waitresses with awesome menu choices and... More

I've been to Trader Jacks a handful of times - for dinners and for a large family get-together in their party room - and always leave happy. Most recently went on a Friday night with a few girlfriends to enjoy dinner on their large patio overlooking the river. I recommend reservations during summer nights - we waited an hour after...

Nice atmosphere on outdoor patio, very good scallops and risotto. Have never had a bad item from their menu in the past four years we've been going there. Inside can be loud at times, but tolerable.

What a great find this restaurant was. Was looking for a place a friend and I could have lunch and enjoy patio dining, a co-worker recommended it and so glad she did. Lobster bisque was the highlight of the lunch. But the patio is awesome, right along the river and it's so peaceful. A great place to hang out with... More

We live close by and have eaten here a lot. Food is good, the service is better. They used to serve home made cut fries a year or so ago, but have since changed them. The new fries are just not as good. Otherwise, they severe a good meal for a fair price. Change your fries back, and I'll change... More

We had lunch here and had their fried grouper sandwich special with sweet potato fries. It was delicious. The portions were large, so we took leftovers for a second meal. Our waiter was wonderful and very attentive. From the outside it is not impressive, but don't be fooled! They have both indoor and outdoor seating. Both options are good! We... More
