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
Too bad our last night at Jackie's was a disappointment. We knew it was fried chicken night (which has great food!), but we didn't realize that you can't even order extra sides. This meant that we had to order a chicken dinner for our vegetarian friend, and she couldn't even eat the kale because it had bacon! Then, to make it worse, they wouldn't even give us an extra biscuit or more potato salad. Very disappointing. It felt like they were being very stingy.
We've been going to Jackie's for more than 10 years to celebrate birthdays, etc in the neighborhood. We were sad it was leaving, but now we feel like we're ready to move on. Hopefully Jackie's new restaurant will be more customer friendly, especially for vegetarians on ANY night.
Poor service. Waited over an hour for food - on the chicken special night. People seated after us were served before we were. Waitress was awesome and apologetic, but could not motivate the kitchen staff to get our food. She offered to have the manager come over - that took another half hour. He was gruff, rude, and pretty much dismissive. He basically told us if we weren't happy to just leave. No charge for the dinners but it still left a bad feeling. I guess when you are within two weeks of closing you don't feel you need return customers.
We've been coming to Jackie's since moving to Silver Spring about a year and a half ago. In an area where the number of good, unique restaurants is wanting, Jackie's is a highlight. Don't just try the food, be sure to check out their cocktail menu as well. But do it in the next couple weeks. Sadly, Montgomery County has proved to be such a challenge to deal with that the owner has decided to close this eleven-year-old restaurant and focus on a new project in DC. Let's make it clear: this place is always busy and gets plenty of business. They're leaving because the county government here is incapable of creating a restaurant-friendly community. Bummer.
The food is really good. It is not often I go to a restaurant where I can leave and say that was perfect! Normally, if with friends, I go for ambiance rather than food. The ambiance is welcoming, kind of edgy, with a different and tasteful decor. The bar is a real bar. Kind of dark, cozy, and a great place to meet up with friends.
Obviously I am a fan. I will miss it, but can only imagine the next one will be just as good!
We have had the same waiter a few times who is very professional, funny, doesn't hover. The chef always hits it, and the owner is there. Nice touch.
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner at Jackie's recently. The drinks, the service and the food were all excellent. We both had three course prix fix dinners and agreed that each course was interesting, favorable and well presented. We will definitely return to Jackie's soon. We also love the Side Bar which is connected to Jackie's. They serve great cocktails and have a happy hour that offer cocktails for $6.00.
This has always been one of my favorite places in Silver Spring. Actually, it's coming to Silver Spring marked a turning point in the development of the area. The food is interesting -- not the same old, same old. The setting is very attractive, the service good and the open kitchen fun to watch. It's a shame it's closing.
Living in downtown DC it took me a while to align the desire to eat here with my schedule especially since lunch is not an option. Our waiter could not have been more personable and helpful. The food was, as I had heard, both attractive on the plate and deliciously interesting. Velvet soup. We were, therefore, stunned to be told it is closing in March after a 12 year successful run. Sad news indeed. I will definitely head back before then,
We went for the prix fixe New Year's Eve menu and it was pretty disappointing in a few ways. We are regulars at Jackie's and enjoy the novel, eclectic dishes served up there. But, this experience was way below Jackie's usual. Although we were seated on time, our waitress took about 20 minutes to get to us. The drinks we ordered took another 20 minutes, and each course was a while in coming. The couple next to us were openly complaining about the 7 course menu, with suggested wine pairings that they ordered. However, the food and the wine that were to be paired weren't coming at the same time. Surprisingly, it was the wine that was late. The couple told the waitress to stop bringing the wine pairings if they can't arrive with the food. We had planned to meet friends and go dancing afterwards, and we allowed about an hour for dinner. However, with the kitchen and bar backed up, the meal took 2 and a half hours. So, our NYE dancing got cancelled, much to the disappointment of our friends and us.
The entrees were below Jackie's usual cuisine, they seemed to be thrown together, not much taste, and lacking the harmony of flavors. The highlight of the meal was the cauliflower soup, everything else was "meh"!
In short, Jackie's seems to be a victim of it's own success. They don't have the capacity to serve a full dining room. Instead of a prix fixe menu, we would have been happy with their standard menu with maybe a couple specials thrown in.
Jackie's is our favorite restaurant in the DC/VA/MD area. It's been great every time we've dined there and the food is always exceptional. The staff is friendly and accommodating
and the "vibe" is perfect, where you're dining with friends/family or on a date.
We went to Jackie's Restaurant for my son's 21st birthday. The entrees were outstanding -- creative, tasty, and lovely to look at. The service was attentive and the staff was willing to serve birthday cake brought from home along with ice cream from the kitchen (not on the menu, but they found some.) Hope we eat here again.
Food was delicious. Their overall rating would've been higher, however the service seemed to take forever. The restaurant wasn't crowded though, so maybe that is why they took their time? My only critique is that I wish they had vegan options… Or at least more vegetarian options.
