The Caesar salad and Sexy Ben Roll were out of this world. Fantastic.

I enjoyed my meal at Jackson's although the service was slow and our server, although efficient, was not particularly warm or friendly. However, the food was wonderful.

The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious, and the service our server (Joaquin) provided was excellent!

Occasion was dinner before theatre and belated valentines celebration . We had a reservation and had requested outdoor table but none available under covered area so we were put back outside by window but lots of foot traffic constantly walking passed us so sadly spoiled the ambience of our belated Valentines dinner. But our server Rocky was excellent and the food was excellent as always and although pricey unusually large portions neither of us were able to finish our entrees and we had no appetizer or salad. So the food and service somewhat made up for the ambience we had hoped for.

Have been to Jackson's several time on prior visits to Tampa - this was the first time I have been disappointed. Sushi was good as usual but regular food items off the menu didn't "pop" as in prior visits, just ok.
Our server was terrible - maybe that's what reflected negatively on the food. Had to bus our table ourselves twice to get rid of dirty dishes and glassware. Will probably go back just because of location but will eat at bar.

Venue is GORGEOUS, great views and the weather was great so we sat outside..but that's where it ended. We were there for brunch, food was cold and we found SEVERAL spots of MOLD on the grapes. Server was horrible. I probably won't be back and it is a shame because it is such a beautiful place.

Made reservations for a friends birthday celebration, requests and instructions left with my reservations were not adhere to when we arrived. We were placed by the kitchen instead of a waterfront view, and had to have someone told about the birthday celebration even though I had called ahead of time and left instructions on the OpenTable reservation
