“Hands down our favorite local spot”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We love this place for many reasons. First, it is always consistent! To me, that's more important than anything. I know what to expect. The food is a good mix of almost anything you might want from appetizers and salads to pizza, burgers, steaks and seafood. The service has always been good. Ample parking. But the absolute best thing is the 3-season patio on the river!! I can't image you'd be disappointed after a meal here.

“Yes please”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

I heard good things but had low expectations. Wow was I wrong. It was amazing. I got a patty melt that was big, juicey and fresh. My hubby got the friedfish dinner and that was so crispy and fresh. What a great meal it was. Getting hungry just talking about it now.

“Great food”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We love Trader Jacks not only because of the spectacular seafood but also because of the atmosphere. Weather permitting, be sure to sit outside an enjoy the patio on the water. For us it is right around the corner, but it is worth the tip wherever are!

“Food and service with a Smile”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

This has turned into a semi regular place for me to visit. I first attended two years ago and have told many about this place. The summertime on the back patio is great, the food is always fresh and i have yet to encounter an unfriendly server. Year round it serves good food at a reasonable price for the blue collar to white collar family. A must stop if you are in the area and have never been.
