    Service was amazing and the food was absolutely outstanding had the wagyu steak and it may have been the best steak I’ve ever had it was cooked to perfection. Also make sure you save room for desert and try the peanut butter dessert it is by far the best desert I’ve ever had.

    It was rainy weather outside-so inside was very busy, so it was a little on the noisy side. Service was excellent! Our waitress was Morgan and was wondering! Food was good. Overall-very happy, would be back!

    It’s been a while since I last visited Jackson’s for brunch. We came out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Food was good, our server was super sweet. Once she noticed it was a birthday outing she brought over a birthday cupcake.

    I was disappointed on the limited menu options. Even the side dishes were limited and for the price I wouldn’t say it was worth it. It was my first time at Jackson’s. The one thing that stood out was the ambience and service. My server was very very good. Maybe I will try for dinner but brunch was a no go for me.

    My mahi special was outstanding but my husband’s chicken parm was overcooked, dry, and appeared to have been sitting for awhile. The wine I ordered was unavailable and was substituted without ever mentioning it to me. We’ve eaten at Jackson’s dozens of times so we hope this was a rare bad experience and not the norm.

    Went there on Friday, our server was Morgan. She did an amazing job. Service was excellent, food on point, she was diligent, super nice . Went back on Saturday with my team from work. The experience was completely different. Food wasn’t that good, the waitress forgot to bring some dishes but they were charged in my bill. we got 7 dishes and were charged for 9. Same with the drinks. He took forever and made us feel forgotten.

    Let me count the why I am giving it three stars. 1) We arrived early and asked if we could be seated or if we had to sit at the bar—the hostess. The hostess said we can get your table ready for you. We waited for 15 minutes. The hostess did not remember who I was and asked what she could do for me. They finally seated us at our table 2) The Bar took forever to get our drinks, which took 30 minutes. 3) The waitress was friendly but strung out over too many tables. Took forever for the drinks, apps, and meals. 4) The French dip was cold, and the flounder was cold. The sushi was okay, Crab cakes were good. Salmon was good, 5) Something is going on with the bill. The waitress took a salad off the bill, but after some calculations, the tip was the same price as she had not taken it off the bill. The bill said she dropped it but did not say anything to us. Had a hard time reaching her after she gave us the bill. I doubt if I go back

    Food was good, not as fast as we would’ve liked it. I wished they served bread for the lunch menu. We were told it was only for dinner. In our table, we had a mess up with one of the orders and we had to wait longer until the person was served. Overall, it was a great experience. The weather was perfect for the outside and the view was great.

    Enjoyed lunch on the outside deck on a cool and windy day. They kindly offered indoor seating if we had desired it. Only odd thing was that the adjoining bar with large TVs was not open for the NFL Playoff games so we had to go to the very loud sports bar next door for the games.

    Been here multiple times, usually really good experience but not this night. Sat us outside and nobody even stopped to bring us water or say “Hi” for 10 minutes! We ordered everything at once since it was such a long wait and waiter didn’t write anything thing down, 10 minutes later someone else bring us the wrong appetizer and NOBODY brought us silverware!! We started to laugh at how comical it was getting. We grabbed silverware off another table ourselves and dined on our food. Right before we were done eating the waiter finally returned and brought my beer (20 minutes into the meal) lol Terrible, terrible experience

    The food was well presented. The sushi and seafood generally was very good, however the steak was disappointing. The server forgot to ask how I wanted it and it came out medium, so I explained that I wanted medium rare and so a few minutes later a medium rare 6 oz filet mignon was presented along with some grilled shrimp. Unfortunately that was the worst filet mignon I have ever had. It had a texture similar to liver. I have had better steak at Dennys. Sorry to dis it but that's the absolute truth. So $35 for that was definitely not value for money. This was an anniversary meal with my wife, which I had stated when making the reservation but we were put next to a pretty raucous table of young guys, so it was not romantic at all. My wife enjoyed her shrimp and crab linguine and adored her tiramisu desert though so I can't give it less than 3.5 out of 5. Bottom line: if you want seafood and camaraderie in a spectacular location on the Tampa waterfront you won't be disappointed. But its not so good for steak lovers or couples.

    I had the lobster gnocchi and my wife had the grouper. Neither was cold enough to complain, but definitely not hot. Service was exceptional and we never needed to ask for anything. Would definitely enjoy eating there again!

    Food was fantastic and our server was good. The problem we had was that it was very cold this evening and they placed us in front of a door that was opened constantly. At one point the door was propped open and we asked them to close it then we overheard who I believe were busboys say that we complained about the door being open so the next time they went through they turned to talk to someone so that they could keep the door open. Extremely rude! We were a table of 8 and we all froze the whole time. Not an enjoyable experience at all.
