We ate here before a show and loved it! The blue cheese chip appetizer was great as we're the lamb chops an steak! We will definately be going back soon! Corkage fee very reasonable too but the wine list was good if you prefer!

Nice restaurant in the old market
We are new to town, and had spied J's several times because Jackson Street Tavern is one of our favorites. We went on the living social deal, which gave us a fixed price meal for 2. The house wine was included, and was a good cab. We shared a lavosh as an appetizer, which was outstanding. The fixed price meal included the flat iron filet, so we had that which was good, but there are several interesting choices we would try next time.
If you are looking for a nice meal but not at the top price point in the old market, I would suggest J's. It is a really good meal for a good price. The ambience is nice, could be a romantic night out or good for a business meal as well, but not overwhelming. Maybe comfortable is a good descriptor.

Outstanding Food affordable for all
I have been to J's for Lunch and Dinner and both experiences were spot on what I look for in a quality Old Market restaurant. The atmosphere is great and the food is some of the best in the OM. Prices for dinner stay in the $20-$30 range with a few options over $30 so it can be a very affordable dinner for the high quality of food. My only small, insignificant complaint is the restaurant can be very noisy due to the very modern construction of the building.

Loud enough that my kids weren't noticeable. The food was good but I wish the main dishes came with a salad or veggie at no extra charge.

so much fun!
When my boyfriend came into town, I took him to J's in order to get a good steak! And boy was it good! Everything about the food was amazing! Our waitress was very friendly as were the hostess's. I loved the energetic ambiance! There was a live guitarist playing up beat tunes! Great experience! So much fun and great food!

Friendly and Relaxing
We were warmly greeted by the hostess. Our waitress explained the menu selections and answered our questions. We were not rushed and had time to enjoy a glass of wine before ordering. The food was served promptly and as ordered. It was a nice relaxing asmosphere at the edge of "Old Town" Omaha. The steaks were delicious.

We requested a table in the bar so that we could enjoy the floor to ceiling windows and watch the people in the Old Market during dinner. Our service was impeccable. The food was delicious. We asked for some minor changes to our menu items and we were amicably accommodated. Currently they are celebrating their anniversary so the wine was half price which made it most reasonable. We will put J's on Jackson on our short list of favorite restaurants.

We booked online for 8andI mentioned it was a 60 th birthday surprise.We had never eaten at your place.Six of our guests had traveled from great distances and we wanted them to experience a good Omaha steak. They were not disappointed.on my form I requested a window. They did not respond that all the windows were at high tables in the bar area. We were seated next to a noisy party room. They said service might be slow but we didn't feel like it was slow.The party spilled out into our area and the noise was deafening. Food was great and our server was sweet. .
At no time did anyone mention the birthday. No offer of free dessert for the birthday guest.Decor was bland everywhere.

Good food and great service
Good food and great service allowed our group to have a very enjoyable evening with out of town attorneys, even when it was cold and blustery outside. The restaurant is warm and welcoming, fun and casual. The food was outstanding. We had a great time and would definitely come back.

High marks for lunch
It wasn't a busy lunch hour, so the noise level was non-existent. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The classic burger was done exactly as ordered, was moist and very flavorful. Served with chips, we found it exceptional. There's a lot to like here, well appointed atmosphere, good wine list and staff that cares. A return trip is on the calendar, as well as planning for a dinner at J's in the near future.

My husband and I happened upon J's on Jackson because of a Living Social deal. We had not heard of the place before so we thought we would give it a try. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was beautiful. The staff was friendly. Overall, I really enjoyed the food. We had the vegetarian lavosh, the 8-oz. filet, and a New York style strawberry cheesecake. The meat was cooked perfectly.

Great dinning experience
It was my first time dinning at J's on Jackson. From the greeting when we entered until we left, we received special attention and great service. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of both the wine list and full menu. We went with her suggestions for wine, appetizers and main course and were very pleased with our meals. I highly recommend J's for special occasions or if you want to try something different.

"J" must stand for Just Right
Our decision to try J's prooved to be a great one. The space is fairly large, but they have divided the space into several smaller niches that create intimate settings. Our server was very prompt and very friendly. First blush at the menu revealed a simple offering of fairly standard American cuisine, but this is where we were pleasantly surprised. The meal was absolutely wonderful. From an old fashioned Baked Potato Soup to my Omaha Strip Steak (which I have to say they got medium rare right) garnished with cubed carrots and half sliced, roasted fingerling potatoes, everything was delicious. The wine list had some great offerings that complemented the meal. The others in our group were equally impressed with their meals. A perfect night.

My husband, teenage children, and I ate here last Friday night and had a wonderful experience. Lisa was our server and could not have been more attentive and responsive. Food was great and so was the atmosphere and service.
