    The food here is amazing. Wanted to order everything on the menu. The calamari was the best I’ve had in ages and the crab and shrimp gnocchi had the perfect amount of seasoning and heat. Highly recommend. Everything was aesthetically pleasing and plated perfectly. The decor and ambiance was beautiful. The staff were super friendly and the service was exemplary. Looking forward to returning and trying other dishes. Excited about Jackson House Middletown.

    Met two of my friends there. It was their first visit and they thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the restaurant and the terrific food. I had one of their new signature cocktails and it was delicious. Have always had wonderful food at this restaurant.

    My experience at the Jackson House was above and beyond my expectations. It’s a five star restaurant in my opinion. The atmosphere, food and service were outstanding. I will definitely be dining there again.

    Very charming, love all the mocktail options! The Cali smash burger was one of the better burgers I’ve ever had, no question.
