Contemporary American
Jacmel Inn began service in June 1977 after six months renovation to the former residence that was built in 1888. This historic 2-story property sits on 2.2 acres and 9 blocks for the center of historic downtown Hammond.

The lush landscaping, new patio, and the ample parking help make Jacmel Inn a culinary oasis worthy of a 60 miles drive from New Orleans.

The menu has evolved over the years while always using fresh Louisiana Seafood, cooking techniques and dishes derived from traditional Louisiana culture and for 31 year serving great steaks from Iowa corn fed beef.

Our executive Chef Josh Garic creates our menu, which evolves seasonally. Our dinner with a winemaker series is very popular with our customers for the past 20 years.

Our ambiance is a blend of Caribbean, nautical and New England Inn. Guests will feel comfortable dressed casually or dressed to attend a symphony.

    Jacmel did not disappoint. They treated us with several special items for our anniversary and really made it special. The ambiance was great and food was delicious. My only regret is that it was not cold enough to have the beautiful fireplaces going, that’s my favorite winter treat. The live music by Smith and Thomas was also perfect!

    The place is sweet and quaint. I know it’s small but they need to figure out a way to set up the tables that you are not sitting facing the wall. My husbands face was literally to feet from the wall. I only got the hood seat because the way the table next to us was positioned my husband was not able to squeeze in to sit. They had a large party - event and the bar was not able to keep us service. The food was delicious last night but I got I’ll around midnight and am still not feeling up to par

    Nice people, but not enough servers to accommodate the crowd. The room we were in was cozy with a fireplace, but we were cold- kept our coats wrapped around us....there was a break in the window + the 28 degrees wind was blowing in..(didn't see that till we got up to leave!) .....we were seated right next to the window. Manager was very nice + accommodating. The poor 1 guitar player had his speaker right in our ear, so we couldn't even talk. Too loud. Food was ok. The manager + server + bartender were so nice, I will try the restaurant again, but will stay away from the speaker. I really wanted to like Jacamel's so I will give it another try hoping I just visited on an off nite.

    The Jacmel Inn was an incredible “find” while traveling from Alabama to Texas. We are not fast food people and like to find local restaurants for a late lunch/early dinner. Jacmel was amazing. Seasonal squash soup, deviled eggs with salmon and caviar, shrimp and grits, grilled whitefish over crawfish dirty rice accompanied by delicious crispy French bread. White chocolate crème brûlée was an unbelievable finish. It was a beautiful experience and we will plan future travels that direction to include another meal in this beautiful old home. Jacmel Inn is worth pursuing as a destination. We arrived at 1:55 and they close for lunch at 2:00. We were so happy they would accommodate us, but nonetheless felt a little rushed.

    Food and atmosphere is great but the service was abominably SLOW! Drinks took over 30 minutes, meal wait was also too way long. Service personnel were very friendly but since the place was not full I don’t see why the delays were so long.

    A favorite place for ambiance but we were disappointed in the limited menu. We have been faithful patrons for many years so we want the business to thrive, but please give us more variety and some simple dishes to choose from. Give us another soup besides tomato basil. The hostess and waitress were both attentive, friendly and gave excellent service.

    Appetizer special served in bowl with chuck missing from the rim of bowl. Appetizer itself was good. For the price, serving guests on less than presentable dishware is really disappointing and shows a lack of attention to detail, in my opinion. We sat outside because it was a cool and beautiful evening but were seated next to a speaker. It did not give the right ambiance with level of volume and selection of music that sounded like bad jazz from a cruise ship. A light jazz instrumental May set a better tone and with a lower volume. Food was ok but I have had so much better food elsewhere on the North Shore. Needless to say, we will choose to patron our consistent favorites instead, for future meals out.

    Went there Saturday night as a makeup birthday dinner for my husband. We’ve never been before and I was not expecting them to have a birthday card, bubbles, and confetti on the table. The filet was cooked perfectly and the barbecue shrimp were great. The desserts and drinks were fantastic. We’ll definitely be back!

    Food and service were great. We had an early reservation (right at opening), were seated at a nice table, then watched as the next three parties were seated around us, including a party of eight (ten?) right behind us. Don't understand the logic in that as the restaurant had just opened and is fairly expansive. Have to say, that it did not turn out to be an issue.

    We loved the apps, the deviled eggs and the Foie Gras was amazing. I had the BBQ shrimp and while the taste was good there was barely any of that delicious broth to sop up with the bread. My wife loved her Red Snapper.
