Oysters Rockefeller were the highlight plus the sunburst salad. Attentive staff and great view made for a memorable night. Ask for the first floor if you want to talk, the top floor has the bar and is quite loud.

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.

Good food & a nice view of bay. The service was excellent. They have a good selection of tap beers as well as wines and cocktails. The menu was quite complete too.

Visiting my brother and family (we come from Denmark) we had an evening with dinner for both adults and a child, and it was a great evening :-)

The reason we picked this location was because of the view. Thinking we would have a wonderful new years day family dinner. Not to be the case. Upon arrival we were not greeted by a hostess, instead we waited by the from door with 2 small children with a cold breeze. When we were finally greeted by a waitress, we... More

We have been long time customers of Sailor Jack's (even before it was Sailor Jack's). It was our close friends' Anniversary and we invited them to dinner at Sailor Jacks. We found the service and meal to be excellent. The two ladies at the table had the same fish entrees and the other fellow had the rack of lamb and... More

Beautiful water view and terrific food. My daughter had the Fish and Chips which was excellent and the portion was more than ample. I had the Polenta marinara with vegetables which was soo good as well. The water view was just so lovely We were upstairs, which we recommend because you will get the view. We were there at lunchtime... More

Sunday morning breakfast. Where to go? This was really cool. If for anything go for the view. From the top floor you can see freight ships...sailing vessels and paddlers. The restaurant likely has the best views in Benicia. The food is great but be hungry. This is not a toast and organic yogurt place. If you are a corn beef... More
