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.

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.
