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.
