Beautiful location right on the water. Had a burger - good, not outstanding. It came with fries, which were good. Carrot cake for dessert was delicious!
Very comfortable eating area
This was our first visit and we loved it. Definitely a new go-to spot for us. We enjoyed sitting outside and looking over the water / Tampa. The view was wonderful. The service was spectacular! Very attentive, friendly and accurate. And the food was delicious. 5 Stars from us!
Third time here. Great to sit outdoors. All food great.
Preferred when you didn’t have to eat from the brunch buffet. Food was great, but, a lot of items seemed to be empty and take forever to be replenished. Would skip brunch and eat at the bar next time. Server was great!
The place is really nice, a bit expensive but worth it. We wanted to sit outside but we were seated inside. A little noisy. Food was excellent.
The bottle of wine I purchased was awesome!! this was my first time and it was my birthday! The dish I ordered was so bad!! I ordered the chicken penne pasta it was terrible!! I do not recommend this place! The service was ok could of been more friendly!!!
Great seat along the water made for great company with my friends
What a fantastic night for dining with great friends as we sat out on the Outside Patio & enjoyed our wonderful dinner! The food was delicious, our server Steve was very attentive & the ambiance was super! Highly recommend this dining experience! The Key Lime Pie is NOT to be missed! Best I ever had!!!
Joyful time with friends. Food was wonderful and the water view is fantastic.
The restaurant is Lovely! Great ambiance! Wonderful location and view! Our server, Steve, was having a bad day, a VERY bad day. Screwed up everything. Drink order, food order, crashed into chairs and heaters, Forgot he took our order and came back twice to ask if we were ready to order? He apologized often, but it was to the point that we asked him if he was feeling ok.
I would go back, I plan on going back, but do not want Steve as my waiter.
Nice place on the water. Friendly servers. Great range of food options.
Love sitting on the patio. Food great!
Went for brunch was our first time they had a HUGE variety to choose from! Pasta station, omelet station, carving station
The views of the river when you sit outside, is awesome. Food is always prepared deliciously. We've dined here many times. Sunday's brunch is one of Tampa's best. Get reservations wayyyyy early for it, or you won't find a table.
Our server was slow to start. Table was wobbly.
Sushi & grouper with crab all excellent! Beautiful view if seated outside.
The food and service is always the best at Jackson’s
A great restaurant to celebrate the first day of 2020.
We had one gluten free diner with us on New Year’s Eve. This was due to celiac, so not a preference. Chef Mario intentionally gave me erroneous information when I spoke to him prior to our dinner. He first said that my daughter could only have pan cooked chicken and steamed broccoli. Having looked at the menu prior i asked him about other options. There were plenty of possibles. He then must have gotten annoyed with my question and said anything could be made gf, including that they had a dedicated fryer for the French fries. Weird turn in the options, but he said that he would be there that night to assist.
We got there and chef Mario was not working(first lie). The sous chef was very helpful. He advised that the fryer was not dedicated (second lie), so what I had been told was a lie that could have had bad consequences for my daughter. The sous chef helped us navigate the menu and we were able to order a bun less steak burger with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. There were also other options.
I would never recommend Jackson’s. If their chef was willing to give me bad information that could impact a child, then I wouldn’t trust them to prepare any meal ever. I feel that they use their prime location as a crutch and don’t value customer service as part of the package.
Very unfortunate, but there are much better restaurants in the area.
I would not go back on New Year’s Eve. They are too busy focusing on getting ready on the party outside. Very distracting and you can’t see the water
Jackson's is one of our favorite "go to" restaurants.
We had dinner on the patio. It was a perfect evening and service was superb.
Everything was just OK. It was a nice view, but we had music from the bar and music from the restaurant blaring at us at the same time at the table. Again, our waitress was very sweet. The sushi was just OK. The group or was fantastic and the sword fish despite being highly recommended, was just mediocre. The gelato and sorbet at the end was delicious.
Great atmosphere. Are outside.
Always a great experience! My family and I Love this place.
FOH was outstanding!
Great job Mason.
Lobster mashed potatoes was awesome
Ambience is very good, the costumer services was very good from the hostess to the server.
Food was tasty and price adequate although a bit higher.
Noise level is high, but we had a good time!
Solid D. I might be inclined to rate Jackson's a C, but the food was overpriced. I ordered the grouper sandwich, for example. The bun was bland and uninspired, as well as soggy because the order must have sat on the counter for a while (the big clue were the luke-warm fries that had gone soggy.) The calamari was ordinary - nothing special here. Overall, I felt that this venue was dated, overpriced and lacked the quality I was expecting. My family will not return.
They were so rude. I let them know we were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary in advance and they sat us in the rain. When a table opened up right next to us, they wouldn’t move us. They said they had another reservation who specified that they wanted to sit by the railing. I said that I had also requested a seat with a nice view due to our special occasion. They didn’t really care, so we canceled our order and left. We’ll never go back.
Excellent service and good food but fish portions were too small.
We really enjoyed our meal at Jackson's Bistro. We sat outside under the canopy and we had a great view of the water and boats. Our ahi tuna appetizer and sushi rolls were great and I highly recommend ordering from their sushi menu! We will definitely eat there again!
