Excellent food and drink. We enjoyed the short rib tacos and meatloaf entrees. Good service. Enjoyed their brown sugar old fashioned. Will return.

We had dinner as a party of four last night. The food was good, as always. One of our orders were wrong, so that person sat and watched us all eat. It was really cold in the building, most tables still had their coats on. Service just wasn’t great. Our friend whose order was wrong didn’t receive any comp on his bill at all, his food came when we were all mostly done eating. The food is always good, but tonight service fell short.

Our waitress Dannie was very nice. She accommodated us when we requested to move tables. The restaurant was just so cold, even in the corner booth we decided to move to. I’ve never been here before but probably won’t return during the winter months.

The knowledge and personality of the bartender to an extremely attentive waiter, coupled with an awesome short rib grilled cheese and Cajun pasta made for a memorable dinner

This was a great restaurant for a casual dinner with friends. It is a very noisy venue, but welcoming. The food was amazing and generously proportioned. Overall, a very positive experience.

Ordered the vegetarian mushroom stack sandwich which came very mushy (watery) and the fries were also very limp and not too warm. My husband ordered the meatloaf which he wasn't too fond of. Our waitress was great.

We were seated in the corner of the restaurant by the serving station. We requested bread and water upon order. Bread came after meal was served and water never arrived. I grabbed salt and pepper as server didn’t check back until later in meal.

Food was great. We both had the meatloaf from which we had from a previous visit. Service was just ok. Water glass went empty before it was filled.

They did not have our reservation down when we arrived. If not for the Open Table text confirming, we would not have been seated. Also was told we would have to wait until something opened up or sit upstairs. How did this happen?? 2nd problem we've had with Jam's and reservations.

Our waitress was informative, polite & professional. The food was delicious and of large portions. Photo worthy display! We got into our reserved table right away. The building was clean and modern. This also leads to a lot of echoing so it was loud and hard to hear conversations at our table. That’s the only thing we wish could be changed. We will definitely be back again!

Big fan of Jam’s down in the Old Market but had not been to the Legacy location. Had dined in the building multiple times when it was the Upstream. Food was great, as you would expect of a Jam’s. The ambience was less so. Other than shrinking the dining room, seemed very similar to it’s Upstream days. A basic, west Omaha, dining room that was very loud. Will stick to the old market location in the future.

It was our first visit to Jams and what a pleasant surprise. Our cosmoes were excellent, the ceviche was great but a little too spicy, the calamari was excellent and our main meals were also very good. We had great friendly service and have no complaints at all. Jack did an excellent job. We will definitely return now that we know about Jam's. A great evening had by all.

Food was mediocre to say the least. Ordered weekend tacos, very bland. Potatoes overcooked. Waiter was inattentive and took forever to even get our check. Will not be going back.

Great options for indoor and outdoor dining, our server was excellent--very busy, but remained attentive. I really enjoyed the happy hour and was thankful that I was able to split my entree with my husband (better portion control). The hamburger was cooked perfectly. My only, only change would have been the queso (although tasty) be a tad thicker to stay on the chip better. Guacamole great! And they had Kros Strain Fairy Nectar on draft :) Good Monday night out with my husband, thank you! We'll be back!

The food was good to above average as usual. Isabelle our waitress was fantastic. The hostesses were less than interested in being there and could learn a lot, since they are the first person you see upon entry!!!

Well we made our reservations based on a recomendación from a friend. Not sure if it was an off day. But as soon as we arrived we asked for a booth preferably. Typically they would comply with your preference as you are the customer. However the main hostess had a terrible attitude not only towards us. It also had it towards the other servers. She even took the silverware and menus out of the hands of our server. Not very nicely either. The food was not good some with flavor and some without, I order a burger cooked medium a d this things was well done and dry (not very good). Our experience was not very good, in my opinion I would not recommend it.
