About Jackie's Restaurant
Since opening in 2004, Jackie's restaurant in Silver Springs, Maryland, has been receiving awards and pleasing customers. Owners Jackie Greenbaum and Patrick Higgins converted an old auto mechanic shop into this great bar and restaurant. The industrial decor is appropriate yet still warm and inviting. The award winning wine list is just one of the things that keeps customers coming back to Jackie's restaurant.
Adam Harvey, the chef at Jackie's restaurant, creates his dishes using locally grown, high quality, organic ingredients. Appetizers like truffled cheese fries and pork riblets are popular. For entrees opt for something simple, such as sea scallops or branch out with something unique like lobster risotto. The tiramisu eclair makes the perfect dessert. Brunch is also an option at Jackie's on Sundays.

Jackie's Restaurant - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Have eaten at Jackies 5 times. This was an off night. Although the waiter was attentive and friendly, he made a couple of faux pas. When requesting decaf coffee he made it seem as if he was being put out because he said he has to start a fresh pot So? After appetizers our silver ware was removed so by the time the entre was served, we had to wait for new servings.
The appetizers were delicious but the entrées of pasta with lamb ragou we're very bland.
we've had some great meals in the past. This was clearly an off night.
The menu contains familiar items but they are prepared in deliciously non-traditional ways. The chicken livers on toast were topped with marinated baby mushrooms, melted in our mouths. The caesar salad appeared with bibb lettuce and rye croutons. Cannelloni was served on a puree of carrots and fish stew was served with large biscuits, southern style. Meal was topped off with the best tira misu we have ever had--again, prepared non traditionally. Will definitely go back.
The food was superb. They have a serious chef there. The menu of entrees is small , but each one was much appreciated by our party of four. Cost was $100. per couple. We asked for a quiet corner table, which worked well. From past experience (a long time ago) we didn't want to sit in the central area which is rather noisy.
Having eaten all across the globe and being a major brunch aficionado, I just want to say how exceptional our recent brunch experience at Jackie's was. Our server, Hazel, the bussers, host and all support staff were professional, warm, and simply fantastic. The food was unparalleled. The drinks were simple but delicious and honestly, we (as a group of hospitality professionals dining together) could not stop raving about it the entire time.
Thank you from the bottom of our happy hearts!!!
We walked to Jackie's - one of our favorite local spots. Took out of town guests. The artic char wa soerfectly prepared. The ny strip done to perfection. The desserts were interesting and delicious. Almond cake with blood orange, caramel, and caradmon ice cream was great. Nice cocktails too.
We love this restaurant and have gone to it at least two times this time. We brought friends from the city hoping to show off it off as proof that good food can be had in the burbs. They let us down.
When we arrived, despite our reservations they kept us waiting because they couldn't find menus. Our waitress was flustered and distracted. Their wine selection was apologetic. Our salads were overdressed, and are proteins were not prepared as we had requested. And there was nearly a 25 minute wait between when our entrées were taken away and when desserts were offered. Just utterly lackluster. Had Jackie's lost its magic?
We went to Jackie's on 2/28/15 for an early (6pm) dinner, expecting a real treat. The decor was very attractive but it was very cold in the restaurant. The vinyl booth seats chilled our backs and bottoms. The dish my husband ordered was not available...already sold out. He found another entree to order....seafood stew. It ended up being fishy tasting and poorly seasoned. The flavor of the fries was overwhelmed by the truffle cheese. Heed the review that says to get the cheese on the side. The mushroom soup was not to our liking either...too salty, though flavorful. The tasty breads were served warm and the Beet TARTARE was a unique and delicious way to enjoy this vegetable. The service we received was prompt and helpful. We feel that we tried enough dishes to know we won't be going back.
My wife and I have been to Jackie's several times and enjoyed it. We were meeting friends visiting in Silver Spring and wanted to take them to a restaurant near their hotel, on a Monday night. I went online and saw that Jackie's was open on Mondays (great!) and that it served fried chicken, which we love. What we did not realize (and perhaps this wasn't clear on the website) was not that this was fried chicken AND the usual menu, it was ONLY fried chicken (and tilapia).
It was too much trouble to leave and our friends were good sports so we stayed. The service was fine and pleasant. Our fried chicken was very overdone on the outside; I'm surprised it was served to us. The "family style" meal included potato salad (which was fine), biscuits (which were delicious), and bacon braised kale (the bacon again being a non-starter for a group that doesn't eat pork or beef.
So, we would return to Jackie's, but I feel the restaurant should make it unavoidably clear that the Monday menu is essentially ONLY fried chicken, and not fried chicken as an EXTRA offering.
We made a reservation for valentines day about 2 weeks in advance and there was no mention on the website about a special menu for the day so we were surprised (in a bad way-- I like having variety, and not a pre fix menu) about that. Spent way more than we wanted to and only had one round of cocktails. Because of the mediocre service I don't see myself returning soon, BUT the food was great so maybe on another special occasion.
I posted this on Yelp already and didn't want to recreate it.
I went to this place with my wife and another couple to celebrate the ladies' birthdays, and overall we were very pleased with the evening. It's a little tucked away, but once you get inside it's very comfortable and welcoming. Things started off great with a surprising notification that the restaurant has a pre-fix menu on Sunday nights. Appetizer, Entree and choose between Starter/Dessert for a little over $30 (additional charges for higher end items). That's an excellent deal and allowed us to drink our savings.
The Truffle cheese fries are an excellent starter, and we enjoyed all of the appetizers. I personally loved the beet tartare, very refreshing! Everything leading up to the entree course was fantastic.
Unfortunately, the entrees were very salty and the desserts were ok but not amazing. I love salty food and this was a lot for me. My wife had to send back the scallops dish for excessive saltiness, which was a shame because scallops over risotto right in her wheelhouse. There were elements that were great, for example the turnips on my steak dish, but the poor scallop dish was a disappointment.
We definitely plan to go back and give Jackie's another try. It was a very fun evening and it didn't hurt that we had probably filled up on excellent starters and appetizers by the time the more disappointing elements arrived. A little more judicious use of salt and more exciting desserts and this place could easily be five star.
Our group of five celebrating a friend's retirement went to SUNDAY Brunch. We tried a variety of menu options and we were all pleased. I thought the vegetarian omelet was excellent. The noise level makes normal decibel level conversation difficult. The wait staff was very attentive. I will return. It's an interesting menu, how about more vegetarian choices?
Jackie's is a family favorite. The cuisine is consistently delicious, original and well-plated. The service is friendly and attentive without being a nuisance. While the menu is really gourmet, the prices are quite reasonable. There's a parking garage across the restaurant and it is walkable from the Silver Spring Metro station.
Jackie has always hired good chefs....and it seems after not having dined there in almost a year...the creativity is still there! The fried Brussels sprouts....DEEELICIOUSLY DONE w/a great flavor mixture & a generous amount too, definitely check it out! !! The truffle oil fries with cheese....tasty, kinda like potato chips" ya just can't eat 1 but could have been a little crispier. I had the seared scallops (perfectly cooked) w rice mixed w what seemed to be pureed squash/Kale herbs w a citrus finish. I do think the pour for wine is too light for the cost.
We (party of four) chose the fixed price menu to get a sample of all of their areas of selection. All of the food looked very nice and probably would have tasted pretty good, but all four of our main courses were very over salted, some to the point where we just could not eat it. The atmosphere was very nice, but there were not a lot of people (was very cold outside the night we went). It was quiet, but with more people the decor could have uped the sound level. I would give it one more shot, as I have heard that the brunch is very good. If that doesn't pan out, I'd probably not return.
Jackie's was firing on all cylinders for New Year's and the meal was fabulous! Not content to serve just any fare, the chef and his crew went all out and prepared some unbelievably creative and mouth-watering dishes. Hamachi, foie gras, waygu beef, whole branzino, - and the amuse bouche starters -- hit all the right notes. There was so much more that was exquisite that it seems unfair to name only a few. We'll just have to go back to see how many become menu regulars . The place looked particularly pretty too, all dressed up in Jackie's trademark pink. I'm still relishing that meal and a particularly lovely night!
Several people have told me that they have experienced poor service at Jackies. Until this night I had not experienced this. The server seemed indifferent and impatient. She was not friendly and certainly not service oriented. Waited a long time before she came to the table the first time. Had to ask three times before the bread basket was refreshed. Did not ask if we wanted more wine once our bottle was empty. Never asked if we wanted coffee or anything else before dropping the bill on the table. It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was busy but certainly not full so don't understand why it took her so long to come to our table time after time.
Jackie's, a treasured addition to Silver Spring, has turned chinsy. The setting, the service, the quality of the food served were all fine. My fish stew was delicious...what there was of it. I found my portion to be very skimpy. At a price of $29, I expected to have a plateful of seafood. Instead, I got a meager amount, not enough to satisfy me. I am not a large person, actually kind of small.
My husband's char was tasty and tiny. Really. We won't be returning to Jackie's.
We had the fried chicken dinner offered exclusively on Monday nights. Chicken was good, not great, but the sides were very scant, not enough for 4 people, but maybe enough for two. When we mentioned it to our server, he said it was the standard amount for 4, which we knew was not true, as we had previously had the same amount provided when only 2 of us were dining.
arrived with my family about 4 nothing on begin receiving platesbut the waiter kept telling us they were out of almost everythingby the time our meal and the we have been short changed on almost every item on the menu the paragraph rather than telling us ahead of time to do we want to have a fool I just kept trying to push substitution. In the end he experience was not good
I have never been disappointed with my meal and this past Sunday's brunch was no exception. I had the roasted duck on a bed of creamy polenta and scrambled eggs. It was absolute heaven. I also tasted the sausage gravy and biscuits which were also delicious. For the table, we had the huckleberry glazed donuts and I am still daydreaming of them as I write this review. Delicious and perfectly cooked with just the right amount of sweetness. I love Jackie's!
