This summer we enjoyed lunch on their covered patio and decided to go back for dinner. We really enjoyed our post holiday dinner. Requested a quiet table and we were accommodated. I ordered the lamb chops which were tender and delicious. I requested they be cooked medium but there was very little pink inside. The restaurant offers a 4 course tasting menu that was a very good deal but we decided it would be too much food for us. Melissa was an excellent server. I requested to change up the veggies for my personal preference and was accommodated here also. We’ll be planning a return visit. A hidden treasure located in an unexpected location.

1st visit to Jackson’s. We arrived early on NYE and were seated quickly by a welcoming hostess. Our server was very nice and attentive. We had the dinner for 2 NYE special. It was very good and prepared as ordered. We were charged extra for 1 of our salads, but not sure why. Didn’t notice til we left. Overall , it was a good experience, especially for such a busy night. We will definitely be back and would recommend to friends.

Been on our radar for literally years, kept hearing good things, finally made it in and...WOW what were we waiting for. To say we were not disappointed is quite the understatement. We really did not expect the overall experience to be so solid. All phases clicked from the cocktails to the kitchen to our warm interaction with our server Martin. Terrific attention to details resulted in an outstanding dining experience. Thanks.

We arrived for a 5pm reservation around 4:50. There was no one at the front desk, and the bartenders ignored us, as did the entire serving staff and managers who were holding a meeting in the dining room off the kitchen. Finally a receptionist came over, seemed confused trying to find our reservation, then didn’t seat us or say anything so we went to the bar and asked her to let us know when our table was ready. We ordered drinks, and after 5 minutes, the bartender was still doing something at a cash register and hadn’t started making our drinks. By then, our table was ready, so we asked to have our drinks brought over to the table. We were the only party in the restaurant at the time, and the receptionist sat us at a 2-top, immediately outside the entrance to the kitchen, about 5 feet away from where the staff was still having a meeting. It was awkward and made us feel like an inconvenience as the staff and 2 managers socialized after the meeting, looking over at us intermittently. The dining room was still empty when we left-not sure why we were sat at this table. Service was good. Steak had a huge piece of gristle and duck was overcooked and cut before it was allowed to rest. Stick with wine and beer here, their cocktails look good on the menu but are poorly executed, taste like straight booze. They have festive decor, but totally underwhelmed and disappointed.

My husband always gets the prime rib if we go on a Saturday. As always it was fabulous. I had the angel hair pasta with Bolognese sauce, it was delicious. For starters, hubby had the shrimp sausage chowder and I tried the mushroom risotto for the first time, it was the best I have ever had! I went home with leftovers and we also purchased a bowl of the chowder to go. Our waiter Martin is very attentive and we always have wonderful service because of him. Can't wait to return next weekend with friends. It's fun to introduce a wonderful restaurant to someone new.

The food is great hear everything is made to be slightly different than other establishments, distinguishing this as a class above. 4 guest all raved about their main course and the dessert topped off the night. I do not order sweets unless the dessert sound unique. The atmosphere is up beat and the staff accommodating. I would recommend Jackson’s

Went 11/22/19 for the first time to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. We noted on the reservation our celebration. The service and experience was fantastic. We were greeted promptly and the hostess seated us in a quite corner next to the fireplace noting to us it was the perfect spot to have some privacy and a more romantic feel. Sophie was our waitress and we told her we did not want to rush our meal; she timed everything beautifully. The manager checked in on us once and was very intuned to our date and was careful not to interrupt us. We felt like we were alone although never had to ask for anything. They also brought us a glass of champagne as a special treat on the house. The food was wonderful and price very reasonable. Some parts of the restaurant were busy and loud making the quite corner they gave us all the more impressive. We will be back and I look forward to celebrating here again.

Our first experience dining at Jackson’s Restaurant & Bar was a complete success! First and foremost, Jeanne our server was amazing. She welcomed us as soon as we were seated and was attentive and friendly the entire evening. We had a wonderful dinner from fresh breads to apps, to soup, the entree and of especially the warm toffee cake with vanilla ice cream. An Outstanding evening and we will return! Thank you

We had a birthday party for an 11 year old grandson. I asked Jackson’s if theycould provide a birthday cake and they went above and beyond to provide a very festive cake with lit candles. My grandson was suprised and totally delighted. As always the food, service and venue was first rate. A special thanks to Diane and Mark for making it a very special evening for all of us.

The food was good but the service was horrible. It took over 40 minutes to get seated although we had a reservation. I do understand that a reservation does not always mean that you get seated at that time, but this did seem a little much. When I watched a group that just walked in the door get seated immediately I finally spoke up and so did another group that had been waiting for some time. The hostess did not seem to care and was actually indifferent a little understanding and communication can go a long way prior to the customer bringing up the issue.
