    This is a great neighborhood restaurant to enjoy a meal and drink. Interesting menu, roast chicken is delicious. I had e special burger with arugula, smoked Gouda, fried egg. Very tasty although it was a bit over cooked. Always have a good time and meal ay Jackson's. The restaurant is very loud though but fun.

    Even though we had a reservation we still had to wait 15 minx waiter was very nice. They have a big beer menu. The steak fries with garlic and Parmesan were delicious! For dessert we ordered the hot fudge French toast which was burnt so the waiter took it off the bill. Some issues but our entrees were good so I would go back

    Our last two experiences with Jackson's were about 1 1/2 years ago. Excruciatingly slow and inattentive service and the food was so-so. But we decided to try it again and WOW were we surprised...First, the menu was revamped. The food was DELICIOUS and fresh. I had a wonderful salmon which I believe is an old menu item but tasted much better than it was last time. The biggest change was in the service. Our waiter was FANTASTIC and we didn't wait very long to be served. It was one of the best meals we've had lately in general. We will definitely be back again soon.

    Drove from Ronkonkoma to Commack just to try the Marinated Skirt Steak. Worth the trip! Tender, juicy and flavorful, and a generous portion. Both of us selected it even though I also wanted to try the pecan-crusted chicken -- maybe next time. The sides (mashed and fresh spinach) were unremarkable, but still good. Lobster Roll Sliders on fresh biscuits were outstanding! Carrot Cake and Chocolate Mousse Cake were very good, but not special. Will be back soon.

    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. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and most accommodating.
