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.

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

Jackson’s has amazing water view and outside dining. The food was amazingly great. Elegant enough that you feel great dressing up. Yet cozy enough that you’re able to lounge. Great atmosphere. Loved it!!

Food was terrific. We sat outside which was comfortable and provided a great view of downtown across the river. Our waiter was very good, providing suggestions that were on target and his service was excellent

Turned out to be one of the best dinner experiences in a while. Reservations were prompt. Skate Fish in a Chipino style sauce with chorizo and fingerling potatoes was on the special as well as a 32 OZ Cowboy steak. The grouper and scallops we solid. Go figure. That's A-List stuff. The food came out hot!!! What a surprise. Oysters, Shrimp - satisfying! The view was great and the service was kind. The wine-list is one of the best in town - not only because there's something for everybody's price range - and I know a thing or two about that. It was a super night.

Slow service. Martini was warm and not properly made. Nothing special about the food. This was a major Valentines’s Day disappointment.

Went with boyfriend for Valentine's dinner. Food was fantastic as well as the drinks. Loved the garden mule with the mottled berries. Staff was so friendly and very attentive. Great location on the water. Will be going back for another date night soon.
