Overall it was an “alright experience” The food was excellent. The service was poor. The service started good but towards the middle/end it was terrible. We definitely got neglected by other tables. No one checked on if our food was good. I asked for the check 3 times . We were with our daughter who was 4 so she was getting really ancey. Our serve had other tables but she forgot about us a few times. I told management but they didn’t care and just stared at me and said sorry. I just wanted them to understand just because we already ordered doesn’t mean we should be neglected. And I shouldn’t have to wait 20+ minutes for a check. It was to the point I was standing up with my daughter waiting. It shouldn’t have been like that.

Thank you Jackson’s for making this first date fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive, the food came out quickly and was delicious. The outside view of the water was perfect.

Can’t thank you all enough 🙏

The waiter was very nice and attentive. The food came out with good speed. Everything was fantastic! I had the deviled eggs, pork belly, and creme brulee. I highly recommend all three.

Jackson's Bistro continues to be the restaurant I take my out of town friends to give them what I call "the Tampa experience". Jackson's has the perfect combination of great food, great service, in an ideal location that has a great view of Tampa Bay. The food continues to improve in quality since I first at there about 2 years ago. They are spot on with their new chef and the management must be very competent because the staff is always friendly and essentially no wait if you make a reservation. I will definitely keep coming back.

Jesse was a great server. We enjoyed our dinner. It was a lil mix up in one order... I’ll blame it on the mask.

We was celebrating my husband’s Birthday and reserved an outside table. The table was in the walkway where other guests had to walk by very closely we asked to be moved to another table which was possible. The Sushi we ordered as Appetizers was pretty good but the Crab-cakes and the Snapper with Scallops was average and we think overpriced for the quality of the meal. We eaten at Jackson’s before and had better tasting meals.

Waiter too a long time to greet us at the table . He didn’t seem very knowledgeable about the menu. They gave us the wrong order and we sent it back but it looked like they just took off what we didn’t want and presented it to us like it was made fresh.
