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.
We ate dinner outside on a lovely lit patio. Service and food and ambiance were excellent. We will definitely go back.
Delightful evening. Good food, good service, love the ambiance, plus entertainment in lower level by the bar.
The food and service was great! Would definitely come back and eat here again soon!
The service was a little slow. We thought the food was going to be fantastic based on the appetizers and soup (oyster appetizer and potato soup- delicious!) but the steak was overdone and not really seasoned and the shrimp and grits were mediocre.
Dinner was great, food was good and enjoyed dining there .
Will go back again
Wonderful experience with terrific service from Trace !!
Will be back .. for sure .
Food and music was fantastic. Service was lacking.
Our appetizer crab cake was very good. We had four entrees three of which were very good. One, the veal paneed, was slightly dry and over cooked to my taste but I didn't want to wait to send it back. Our group still enjoyed our evening very much.
Jacmel never disappoints. Trace and Trent are a dream team! We always enjoy the food and ambience.
Food was excellent!! Atmosphere was very romantic!! Waitress wasn’t as good as normal, but overall it was excellent!
It was delicious.
Made a reservation for myself and several clients. The restaurant was closed but no one bothered to let me know.
Delicious, from cocktails and appetizers to dessert. Everything was absolutely phenomenal, great anniversary dinner.
As always a great meal at a reasonable price.One of my go to places. Lunch specials are really a great choice
My date's shrimp and grits were excellent. My snapper special was good. The waiter was having a rough night.
Great food, service, atmosphere!! Most enjoyable dining experience I’ve had in a while!! Loved it!!
Great service and food. Originally had a reservation for outside dining, but weather made that impractical. The reached out to us earlier in the day and let us know that they could accommodate us with inside dining. Wait staff was always there when we needed them without hovering. Great as we have come to expect.
We try to go every week for steak night for family gathering. It's a great value. We had Tyler as server last few visits, excellent service. Last visit (this week) turnout was low for steak night. I hope this does not end it soon. We drive 50 miles for steak night.
Excellent food, pleasant atmosphere, superb service. Our go to place for special occasions.
It was our 15th anniversary and they went out of their way. They made it so memorable for us
We went for my Wife’s birthday, which I mentioned in the Open Table remarks when making reservations. There was never a mention of the celebration from the restaurant at all. Steak was overcooked and had to be sent back.
food, service, ambience all very good; not pleased with the table spacing as being in compliance with social distancing; everything was going well - - we had a 6PM reservation on Tuesday, 10/6, were seated and were the only ones present until about a third of the way through our meal, the waitress seated a couple immediately next to us within3 or 4 feet and there were more than 10 other tables (probably 4-5 for couples) available. By the time we left which was within an hour of arriving, more tables had filled with 4 or more persons but there were still at least 3 tables still open for 2 persons. Not pleased with that at all.
The food and service were great, and the social distancing was very good. Very nice place to eat.
Wonderful dining experience, especially for special occasions
Great Sunday brunch
Waitress was very friendly and food was good. Especially the quail gumbo. Only thing about the food my wife wasn’t crazy about the filet as the grill marks were alittle dark so those spots tasted burnt. Maybe cooked filet on the side of the grill that was too hot...
Wonderful experience. Can’t believe I didn’t know about this sooner. The biggest surprise was how good the steak was.
Highly recommend steak night!
Table in active walking path indoors. Very poor selection
Plenty help on duty but out waitress was rarely seen
Not enough options for sides or substitutions of sides
Menu limited vs what was shown on webpage
Great food and service it just needs some interior updating
Great to meet the Chef and his wife! Plus happy late birthday Chef
Crab cake was, excellent. Shrimp and grits, delicious. New York strip with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus was perfect.
Great ambiance and good food. Great spot for a special occasion.
Always an enjoyable meal.
Everything was amazing, I sat here for 30 mins trying to think of an improvement and I can not think of one. I’ll definitely visit again!
Friendly welcome followed by exceptional service and food. The fish stew was incredible!!
One of the best local restaurants. I’ve been dining at Jacmel for 30 years and I have received an excellent meal and service every time. The cozy feel and ambience especially over winter when the inside fireplaces are going is beautiful. The specialty drinks are always fantastic. Every meal is always delicious!
Amazing place. Food was outstanding and the desert was even better.
