About Jacmel Inn

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.

Not as good as the last time we visited. The meal was bland. The noise level and proximity to other diners was uncomfortable. We’ll go back again and hopefully have a better experience.

We were assured when we called the restaurant prior to our reservation that it is kid friendly. It is not kid friendly, except possibly in the outside area. You could hear a pin drop in the actual restaurant. Our waitress was even whispering to us when taking our order. The food was nothing to write home about. The steak seemed like good quality but everything was incredibly salty causing it to be nearly inedible.

Food was Wonderful but service was extremely slow. Waiter was friendly and explained it was her first night. The restaurant was not full so we didn’t expect a problem but even the drinks took a long time to get. This is my favorite restaurant in the area so we will return.

Or he food was expensive and not worth the price. Our steak was overcooked and our shrimp and grits was quite gross since it was bathing in a bbq based sauce.

I will start with the good. My main entree was yummy - redfish with crab meat. And the others in our party enjoyed their entrees too. I love the fireplace and the ambiance of this restaurant.

Jacmel used to have such a great salad. I look forward to it. Now it is mixed greens that don't hold up to the heavy, but delicious, dressing and one chunk of cheese and a yellow tomato. Very disappointing.

The gumbo was too dark and lukewarm, so I picked my crab meat and shrimp out of it.

I found the waiter to be distracted & cold. I had to call him by name twice to get my wine refilled and there was only one other table in our section.

And lastly, the bathroom was really bad. I was glad that I hadn't gone in there before my meal.

Having eaten at fine restaurants in my hometown of New Orleans for most of my life and living in Seattle for 11 years, I hold a fine restaurant to higher standards than this. Jacmel used to be all that. But it has gone down over time.

I may not be back. Better options for the money nearby.

We had heard of Jacmel for many years, but had never tried it. Shame on us, because it was incredible! The chef (whose name escapes me) has been there less than 2 years, but apparently has turned Jacmel into quite the foody place. We ordered the soup, duckling and trout, all of which was perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, and beautifully plated. We seriously couldn't stop eating! Each dish had a unique blend of flavors...not the same old stuff you get at every other restaurant.
To top that off, the wine was fantastic. We spend a great deal of time in California, so have had the opportunity to try many of the smaller vineyards, and the owner has also. Each of our wines was less than $10/glass, and they were excellent. You really do NOT have to spend $20 for a glass of wine for it to be good!!
The owner pulled up a chair before and after we ate, and we had a very nice conversation about the history of the restaurant, etc. It was such a pleasure getting to meet him, and visit like old friends.
Seriously, do yourself a favor and make the drive out here! You will not be disappointed!

Not what it used to be. Appetizer portions small, but best part of the meal. Hot beer! Steaks tasteless. Trout and redfish dishes overwhelmed by strong sauces. Gumbo bitter- burned roux?
Haven’t been in a while, wont be back.

Too noisy , a lot of confusion on check in , table switching tables.

Was recommended to be a romantic place

Hard to be romantic when you have several guest standing and talking loud like a bar .
Never seen that in any fancy restaurant.
Several couples trying to have their meal and a group of people standing by their friends table , hanging out , talking , laughing , not for a couple minutes , for a long time !! Felt like golden coral kind of athmosphere .

Parking was full , we parked in the back , no signs where to walk through , no lights!!!!'
You need to walk with your wife through a very dark wooded area and there is not ONE light , people walking with their iPhone lights on.

Food was good , very tiny portions , specially for the price .

Not coming back

Heard a lot about this place for years and the whole thing was a disaster

My wife and I had been wanting to try this restaurant for while and decided with our upcoming 5th anniversary we would make a reservation. It was well worth the wait. The food was excellent and the old house that now serves as the restaurant is full of historic charm.
