Amazing brunch - a MUST when in Omaha! Both the frenchy plates were gorgeous, unique, and most flavorful.

Low quality bar food served cold. About the same quality as grocery store frozen snacks. Boring menu. Too many customers with too few servers. Over priced for what they serve.

All of the food and atmosphere were great, and the location is nice. The portions are incredibly large, which feels like a waste of food of everyone orders their own meal. The prices are quite high. Our service was fine. Nothing remarkable.

The service was good but we were there at 5:30p. The food was mediocre at best and the portions were huge. Would have problems recommending to someone else.

Based on the reviews, we had high hopes for Jam. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment. The place is more of a sports bar than a restaurant. The space is worn and the seat of our booth was ripped down the middle. Service was OK. The menu offers a wide variety of items which may be part of the problem: my blackened fish tacos were charred and gritty, and the avocado was hard; my husband's meatball pasta dish was generous but lacked flavor. We'd been on the road for 10 hours that day, so were not inclined to complain or send food back. In retrospect I wish we would have.

Great food. Our server was friendly and funny. I'd never been to this place, but I am glad I tried it. I will definitely be returning! I had the short-rib grilled cheese. It's is one of the best things I've ever eaten.

I ordered the Power Salad with two crab cakes. It was really good and plenty to take home to repeat. My husband had the grilled chicken enchilada. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal as well. We sat outside and it was extremely pleasant. The noise level wasn't from the restaurant crowd but the loud party crowd cruising by on the pedal bars. We still enjoyed our evening very much.

Our experience yesterday at Jam's Old Market was off. First they said they don't take reservations the day of, when I called. The man I spoke with wouldn't take any other position. Then I went on Open Table and made reservations. When we got to the restaurant, there was just a hand full of people. Based on my initial conversation, I would have booked some place else which is a detriment to a restaurant. You need to educate your staff. We eat at Jam's often and usually have the same drink order and food. The last thing I will mention is the drinks. The bar was off last night. Poor mixology - definitely more training needed.

This was our first time to Jams in the Old Market. We ended up coming in early to have some happy hour drinks and apps. The loaded waffle fries were good and so was the strawberry margarita. I ordered the lobster tacos with Gouda Mac and cheese and a side of the salmon corn chowder. The tacos and soup were really good. The mac and cheese was kinda bland. My husband had the fish and chips and really enjoyed those. Our waiter (Tyler) was really attentive. I think he may have been new and training since someone was following him, but he did a really great job serving us.

This place is wonderful. Some may look at the menu and think its too pricey but I promise the food is worth the money. This is not your average place. Service was great!
