“Good food, great views at sunset”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We went here for dinner and found it reasonably priced, with a varied menu, big portions and good service. Make sure you book ahead and request a table out on the deck for beautiful views of the sun setting over the water.

“Fun place to go for fish and chips”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Right on the waterfront and very busy, especially on a Friday evening when they have live music. Great place to people watch and generally hang out.

“lunch by the water”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

As a group of eight, we all really enjoyed our meals while sitting on the deck. A great place to leave the hubby's while the girls went looking around the shops - maybe a "hubby daycare" area?
A jug of water would have been great - not available.

Heard lots about trader Jacks so had high expectations. Didn't enjoy my pizza I had, didn't have much flavor. Expensive too. Disappointed
