First off this establishment has an absolutely amazing view of the water. Staff was very welcoming and quickly attended to our table with frequent yet not overpowering check ups. My wife had the Santa Fe salad which a large serving size and very fresh. It...More

Great for seeing the setting Sun. Also every Monday they have $1.50 Oysters. It’s right at the end of first street and has parking. See you there!

Always stop here for a seafood Louie salad. Unobstructed view of the Carquinez Strait from Martinez to Vallejo/Crockett. Not a lot of restaurants around with great views like this one!

Sailor Jacks has a great location on the water at the First St. Pier. It's the best seafood upscale restaurant in Benicia. Upstairs is where the bar, tv's and the best view of the carquinez straights are. Bring your wallet but it's well worth it....More
