    I was very disappointed in the ambience!!! My girlfriends and I showed up to dine and celebrate my birthday at this restaurant and turned completely around especially when we saw the second floor! It was a mess and out of order! The patio/deck was the same. What we saw in person was nothing close to what is pictured on the website! We were hoping to make this a business we can frequent, but nah!

    They did not close down their reservations on open table or in house, I made a reservation for the 4th, had I not called I would have never known. They didn't offer any type of consolation for it. If you have special events that should be the first thing you remember to do.

    Jackson Brewery is no longer a brewery. We were there at 7PM the place was empty the service was slow and the menu was small. Not a place to have dinner. Maybe a beer or two. We ordered a mixed appetizer plate which was very below average. Do not go here if you want authentic anything.

    I went here with a group of friends for dinner on Saturday night. Service was VERY slow, the food order came out wrong, and the server seemed really stressed and flustered (despite the fact that there was hardly anyone there). We ended up getting a round if drinks free and 50% off our bill.

    There was no one in the restaurant aside from our party, which was a 11 person bachelorette party. The swrvice was poor and the food did not make up for it. I would never go back and I would only recommend to an enemy. It seems that it is more of a night club atmosphere and less of a restaurant which would have been good to know before hand.

  • Brewery that doesn't brew
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 11/2/2013
    I asked for a list of the beers they brew. They no longer brew beer but had some local beers on tap. The hummus appetizer was good, but the burger was not. There was a wedding reception upstairs and that may have affected the service. But in New Orleans, where there are so many great food options, skip this one.

    This is a seedy type bar with a few small restaurant tables. The service was non-existent at first, so I just sat at the bar and even then had to wait for the bartender to finish her personal conversation with the only other customer in the place. She seemed fairly new. Menu is nothing to rave about, so I just ordered a hamburger which was okay but nothing spectacular. The bread pudding was pretty good but very sweet. Don't believe I will be returning.

    Overall the service was great until we got to the end of the meal. Our sever handed us a bill (for a table of 17 might I add) and told me she could not split the bill because we did not ask her to at the beginning of the meal. She never asked. It became a hassle and completely ruined the experience.

    There's was no waitress and you had to order your food at the bar. Lobster bisque was barely Luke warm, and the salad was filled with croutons. A bad choice on my part with all the wonderful restaurants in New Orleans. I will never return to this restaurant.

    I felt like we were bothering them for saying we made a reservation on Open Table. Before we could even tell them we made reservations, they tried to get us to leave saying it was a two hour wait. Once they finally pushed together a random table for us, the service was extremely slow. We waited about 30 minutes just to do drink orders.

    Service was aweful and ambience was worse. It was 35 degrees outside but our server refused to close the front door because the owner prefered to "keep the door open." The server only rarely addressed our needs and delivered our bill before our desert. What a shame for such a good location.

  • I took a group of 8 high school
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/22/2012
    I took a group of 8 high school kids and 3 adults here on a Monday around 6pm. We were pretty much the only people in the restuarant, which I felt was strange. We got a big table we could sit at as a group, which was nice, and our waitress was a really sweet girl. The food was reasonably priced and tasted great. The menu also had plenty of variety and included some New Orleans favorites, which was fun. However, the food took nearly an hour to come out, even though we were the only ones in the restaurant. We had to repeat our orders many times when they kept bringing out the wrong thing, and they even charged us for a plate that we didn't order but they brought by mistake. When our bill came we had to make 3-4 corrections.

  • Don't Go On the Fourth of July
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/4/2012
    The food was excellent, and considering we were there on the 4th of July when you can see the fireworks from the balcony, I didn't expect spectacular service, but it was atrocious. I know the restaurant was packed, however, we missed half the fifteen minute fireworks show because after disappearing for 45 minutes our waiter showed back up to deal with our checks mid-show and then could not manage to split them for us (I was with a group of friends), and actually gave us grief for wanting it done this way when we spent a considerable amount of money there already. I expected more. But too be fair, the service and food would probably both be excellent on any normal night.

    More of a club than a restaurant. Food took forever and wasn't that good. Wait staff wasn't great either. Hopefully the longer they are open, the better they get the kinks out.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 5/5/2012
    Unfortunately, the restaurant is more of a nightclub than fine dinning. Our reservation was at 8:30pm and we were sat outside next to the air conditioner which was extremely loud so we asked to be moved. Our waiter was trying very hard to accomodate us, but it was difficult because the inside areas were playing very loud music, and the outdoor areas were poorly lit and very loud. We decided to just have appitizers and leave, but the food was decent and our waiter did try very hard. Overall, I would not recommend this to families or groups wanting to have a pleasant time. Jax is more of a late night grab an appitizer type.

    If you're looking for average food at average prices in a warehouse setting with a brain rattling, eardrum bursting club music level, this is the place for you. Great place to to if you want to rule out conversation and if you have a high tolerance for ear pain.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/10/2012
    We were disappointed with the restaurant. It was really a club/bar that tried to be a restaurant before the late-night crowd came. There were three things on the menu that our group ordered only to be told they were out of it. Vegetarian options didn't exist. Our group were the only people in the restaurant and when we asked for the outside doors to be shut because we were cold (it was about 45 degrees out), we were told they couldn't do that because the manager would be upset. A disappointing experience.
