Overall very good ambience. Would go back to have a drink but the food wasn’t the best.
Overpriced bland food and the cocktails are terrible. Paid for top shelf tequila and I could tell it was house. Poor service to top it off. Waiter was spread too thin.
Excellent experience…best dinner view in Tampa
Service was great! Our waiter was outstanding and professional. Cocktails were good!
Traveling from NC to celebrate birthday, Jackson's was the best choice
Solidly mediocre food and indifferent service, with a nice ambiance.
The food arrived in a timely manner, the service was excellent and the greeting staff were courteous.
Location was great . Food is average .mostly undercooked . Friendly staff .
We waited over 40 minutes for our order, and then part of it was wrong. We waited another at least 15 minutes for it to be corrected. We also asked for ketchup for a burger, and had to wait about 20 minutes for ketchup to be brought to the table. In the meantime, my meal just sat on the plate getting cold and our drinks were all watered down. The server did bring us two fresh drinks after we asked for them to be replaced. I just do not understand what went wrong. I love Jackson’s and will return, but this lunch experience was very frustrating and disappointing.
Nice meal, loved the house made pesto dip for the bread.
We always love going to Jacksons! Love the sushi most. Best part of our last visit was the maskless staff!!! It was so wonderful to see people's smiling faces again! Morgan was our server and she was as sweet as can be. Thank you!
Everything was wonderful
We loved you server Daniel
First of all excellent service, great atmosphere, love the seating at riverside, delicious foods. Day trip to Tampa and stopping by lunch, not disappointed at all. Great variety of menu, I’m so happy with service was outstanding and friendly. Easy parking and reasonable price of meal. Highly recommended
Incredibly mediocre food. Very bland, no flavor.
Blue crab starter was riddled with shell bits and was basically just mayo coated crab.
Disgusting pairing of Thai curry with the snapper. The sauce had crusted over and was lumpy, but even if it had been fresh it was a terrible combination.
The grouper was ok.
Really the only positive things I can say are that our waiter was nice and the view was good. There are far better places to spend your money though than Jackson's.
Loved the while atmosphere! Wonderful place to eat. The sushi is super good!!!
We love eating at Jackson’s but please replace the potatoes with a different dish. They are dry and tasteless.
Our server Sequoia was outstanding. He guided us through the menu and took excellent care of my wife and I as we enjoyed our one day off together in the past month. The food was outstanding and we had a beautiful outside table with views of the water. We will definitely be back.
Consistently good. Wonderful sushi. Great view and good food.
Best Sushi in the Tampa area! We drive regularly from Clearwater, it's THAT good!
Amazing view and food!
The food was great. Didn’t like the devils eggs, too much mustard. The pork chops and chicken francase was very good. Would go back
The Pink Lady was a little plain, but everything else was delicious! Highly recommend.
Our server was attentive and kind. Our drinks, apps, and meals came out in perfect time. We didn’t feel rushed nor forgotten. Our drinks were never empty. Everyone’s meals were delicious and cooked perfectly. We will absolutely return for another special occasion!
Everyone you order will not disappointment we love it here
We were visiting from New York and had an excellent dinner. The food was great our server was friendly. The music and the location by the water made for a nice romantic dinner night with hubby 🥰. I would recommend Jackson’s Bistro Bar& Sushi to family and friends
Came to celebrate a birthday. The sushi was great. Loved the coconut shrimp and calamari. Everything tasted fresh. The carrot cake was delicious too. Definitely recommend coming here. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was really nice too.
I had the Shrimp Cocktail appetizer and the Teka sushi roll and another sushi roll that had tuna inside and eel on top.
The shrimp was excellent. Extra large jumbo cooked perfectly.
The Teka roll was just tuna inside. But I wanted to dip in sweet Thai chili sauce. The other roll was very very good and I would order it again (pic added).
Enjoyed a great luncheon afternoon with my Michigan daughter. She was impressed with the location on the water, as well as the food and friendliness of the staff and patrons.
I certainly recommend Jackson’s not only as a place to take your out of town guests, but also for we locals to enjoy a nice luncheon or dinner with our best friends.
I decided to book here last min for my sisters birthday ! We needed up having a great night and the waiters were perfect ! Only complaint is there was almost a 4in wait for food but it was definitely worth it ! Thank you !!
I absolutely love going here. I take my clients and visitors here because the food is always great, the selection has something for everyone, and the restaurant environment is relaxing. We had a great time! I love the sushi!
An absolutely beautiful spot on the Riverwalk! Wonderful food & outdoor seating was fantastic!
Our reservation was at 2pm and we were seating outside promptly. We immediately went to the buffet and most of the food items were finished or picked over. I went to the hostess stand and asked what we were to do for food and she stated that they would be replenishing the items until 3pm. We returned to our table for our drink order and had to make multiple trips to the buffet looking for fresh food items. Our waitress introduced herself and stated that there were 2 others that would be assisting her with our service. Our waitress disappeared and the other 2 never came over or even looked our way. We were finally able to flag down our waitress for a 2nd drink order, she dropped of the drinks and we did not see her again until she delivered the check. This was the worst buffet experience ever and I will never return for the buffet.
On a more positive note:
We were here a week prior, for dinner and was served by Sequoia, who was extremely attentive and provided an excellent dinner experience for us. I will only return for dinner.
The food selection could have been better, and fresher. The customer service was outstanding. I also would have liked the option of ordering from the menu.
Average food. Waitress was very sweet but service was average at best
DO NOT ORDER STEAK SANDWICH. BREAD WAS LIKE A BRICK AND HARDLY ANY STEAK
Hmmmmm...our second time here and we were very disappointed. Food was just ok, Haley our server was outstanding, their wine list is so so with decent selection but they don’t give the vintage year...odd. We reserved an outside table a month ago and when we arrived, we were “told” by the hostesses “no you are inside as we sold out the outside seating a week ago”. What??? The manager Michael did come over and apologize but let me just say this....Jackson’s is a tourist trap restaurant and the entire clientele were touristy folks who would be “ok” with this level of mediocrity. Not us....
