Came here for mother's day. Service was awesome. Everyone there were very sweet. I spilled tomato sauce on my white shirt and our waitress offered club soda to help. The grits could use more flavor but overall, my family and I had a nice time.

As always, Jackson’s didn’t disappoint. Burger was cooked perfectly! LIC Waterfront was a great cocktail to start off with before moving over to wine. The mac and cheese is a must get for the table to share!

Food was great, got the wings, Cajun shrimp and meat and cheese board to start. Then for entrees got the fried chicken and ribs. Everything was great, have to admit our waitress wasn't great just ok, but the manager Ceaser really stepped up and helped us out. To the point where I made it my business to say something to the owner.

Will be back for sure!

My friend and I had a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant has a quirky/charming ambiance that enhanced the dining experience. The brunch menu has a very large selection. I went with the buttermilk fried chicken and pumpkin waffles, while my friend went with the avocado and brought a toast. The food came out pretty quickly, and was absolutely delicious. The portions were more than generous. The coffee was excellent and came in these cute little individual, light bulb-shaped carafes. Service was good, if a tad slow at times, but very courteous. The prices were more than reasonable – my friend and I dined for less than $40. I look forward to my next trip to this restaurant because it is definitely worth another visit.

Great atmosphere and vibe-- friendly service, good music, comfortable place to be. Food was a little inconsistent-- really good chicken pot pie, but the chicken tacos were kind of bland. Would try again for brunch perhaps.

We went for brunch. Nice interior and good service. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the brunch burger. The grits were a little more watery than I prefer but tasted great. My husband's burger was closer to medium than the medium-rare he asked for but he still enjoyed it. The apple cider mimosa was also tasty.

Jackson’s was really lovely, soft lighting, good live music
And a great overall ambience. We started with the oyster appetizer and I didn’t like the sauce, it was plain but did give the Giant oysters a chance to showcase how fresh they were. But no didn’t like the sauce, definitely prefer an option with cocktail horseradish sauce. For the entree I had the buttermilk fried chicken with the bacon ranch potato salad and collard greens. While the combination of the greens and potato salad eaten together were delicious the chicken left something to be desired. Needed a lot more flavor, ended up using a lot of hot sauce and salt to make the chicken interesting. On the contrast my husbands Salmon fish dinner was cooked to perfection, perfectly seared on the outside with great flavor. We also shared a dessert (the only chocolate one on the menu) was a flourless chocolate cake with S’more fixings. It was absolutely delicious but it was A LOT of stuff going on and very sweet. I would have preferred something simpler like a chocolate mousse with raspberries or something. They definitely should have one more chocolate option. Overall my husband and I really enjoyed our date night there and will be back.

New to the city and decided to try this local venue. Food was very good and service excellent. Will be returning to try the dinner menu. We had the pleasure of brunch menu for four people and all items were very good, including the brunch cocktails! Make a reservation not one empty table on Sunday at 12:00.

Went for my 1st anniversary with my Girlfriend. Chose the location since she had taken me here for my bday dinner and talked about the brunch and I never had it so it was a perfect time for it.

Attentive, DELICIOUS food, A gracious owner who congratulated us on the anniversary and who resembles Sam Elliot. The part that sticks out the most is the WONDERFUL music. It’s at a healthy volume where you can enjoy the music and still have a conversation with your party. Also the selection is music is mostly 60s-70s classic rock, Motown themed which is a sweet spot for me.

Definitely will come back again and recommend. Be sure to get a reservation for Brunch bc they do they packed around Brunch time.
