    Honestly, heard good things about this place but not sure why. The waiter couldn't answer questions about the menu. Burgers were brought out raw, ribeye was overcooked. Rather go to Texas roadhouse

    Excellent Dinning experience. Been come here for years, since they opened under the old name. Also excellent is the other restaurant by same owners, Morrison's in Plainview. Have enjoyed that one since it's beginnings at Fat Artie's and then Redfish before now. All excellent food and service..

    The food was excellent, the service very good, but it does not state on open table that it is kid friendly. We ate almost our entire meal with a young child crying at the table next to us. So all in all not recommended for older people who want a quiet pleasant meal.

    Jackson's presented as more an more upscale local tavern than anything else, but the food was very good and had some interesting options to counteract the standard pub fare. For instance, the spicy lobster eggrolls were amazing! My wife is pregnant and had a number of concerns regarding certain ingredients but the chef and our server were very accomodating and kept her well informed. I took my family there, including two children under the age of six, and there was no issue with having the kids there on a Saturday night. The craft beer list was substantial and offered a number of great choices. We'll be returning to Jackson's in the future.

    My wife and I LOVED this restaurant when we moved to Commack. We went regularly. We took a hiatus for a few years as we had kids and although it is kid friendly preferred other restaurants with them. We have come back twice recently. Last time the service was awful. Food took forever and the menu was not nearly as good as it was years ago. On our last visit we had a horrible experience. We made a 7:30 reservation. Upon arriving we were told by the manager (after waiting for a hostess that didnt exist for 20 minutes) that he cancelled his opentable system because it cost him a lot of money. We would be seated as soon as he could. We waited an hour and were seated well after others came in. After that entire experience was ruined.

    We were greeted warmly, and had an elderly family member - they placed us not too far in to avoid them walking too much. Our server Tom was at our table in no time. He offered the nightly specials and immediately took our drink order. Fish tacos were superb and fresh, the French onion soup never came but I am no upset because the quality of the food and the kindness of the staff was excellent. The coffee and tea was piping hot on a cold night the perfect drinks to consume. We were given crisp chips with a perky green salsa like sauce for dipping. The burgers are the best in the area...cooked perfectly. Salads were fresh, crisp, and crunchy with a delightfully sweet yet tart mustard ... a must try! Commack neighborhood gem.Will be back soon

    Food was very good. Service was excellent. Restaurant was too loud. They had trivia night and there was no escaping the noise of the host yelling into the microphone. This maybe ok at the bar but it was not pleasant when dining and trying to have a conversation with others over dinner. It was a real turn-off

    We made a reservation for Christmas night thinking it would be slow (most people have company, etc.). It was mobbed - glad we made a reservation. Arrived a few minutes ahead - had to wait about 45 minutes but we were given a great little table for 2 by the bar. Our wait person was the bartender who was very pleasant and accommodating. Food and drinks were great and we enjoyed our Christmas dinner immensely. Always enjoy this restaurant - truly a neighborhood gem.

    Although the restaurant was very crowded being one of the few open for Christmas, I felt they handled the situation well. They opened at 4 PM, which was great as at that point Christmas is "kind of over" in many respects, and quickly were packed. We had a 4:15 reservation and did not get seated for a while, but we were understanding due to the large crowd they had. The food was very good and our waiter was very attentive despite being pulled in a hundred directions. We would definitely recommend Jackson's, a very good experience.

    We were happy that we used Open Table to reserve for our group of 8 because we were seated right away. Another family who arrived without a reservation were told that it would be a 45+ minute wait! Our server was attentive and helpful and the food was good. It was a fun, lively dining room. We were a little disappointed that the menus on the restaurant's website weren't the menus we were given, as they had recently been updated but not uploaded to the web. Most at our table were meat-eaters so the menu had plenty of delicious choices for them. For our vegetarian, the only option was a salad, but it was a tasty salad (pear and gorgonzola) so it all worked out well for our group. I would definitely go back!

The pear & gargonzola salad was terrific with skirt steak which was cooked to my exact liking. We hope you bring back the mushroom & goat cheese salad as it's a favorite as well.

    The host was the beginning of my end at Jackson's. He did not respect Open-Table. Made us wait a long time after our reservation. Was not apologetic about it either. I believe the owner or manager of the restaurant was there as well. He thought he was doing you a favor by having this establishment. All I can say is, I gave the place a second chance and it was as bad as the first time! Food equivalent to TGIF or Applebee's at best. People who rate it well don't get out much. Slow service, mediocre food, bad management ,equal, no more Jackson's! An hour and a half of my life that I wished I had back!

    My husband and I have been here a couple of times. We seem to forget its close by and good for a casual dinner. I had the roast turkey sandwich with avocado and bacon. It was packed with turkey and was delicious. My husband had the burger and although he liked the burger he did not enjoy the roll it was served on. He actually removed the top half. Just too bready, I had an apple martini which was one of the best I've ever had. The bar was busy and by that one drink I can see why. I would use the term "loud" rather than energetic. We would go back a third time for a casual dining experience. I wouldn't consider it a romantic restaurant. .

They did a great rendition of 'Happy Birthday' :D Two diners had the Prime Rib special, both served a bit under done than ordered (thus the 4 not 5 stars). The issue for one diner was pleasantly and efficiently remedied. (The other diner was content). :-) Very nice beer menu: several bottled + tap choices. Will definitely be back. Recommend to all
