We were visiting the area for the night and a staff member at our hotel suggested we eat here. I had the pulled chicken pasta and it was good. I would have liked some type of thicker sauce on it because it seemed like chicken just put on top of pasta. There was seasoning and good flavor but a nice... More

We had 12 for supper club on Thursday night. Naturally, everyone was served but me. It was 20 minutes later before I got mine. Strange thing was I had the salad with chicken breast. Well, you can't always get what you want. I was glad everyone else was served expeditiously and we all liked what we ordered, including me. It... More

Upon recommendation from a friend, another friend and I hit this fab restaurant for lunch today. The food and service were excellent, and we discussed returning here instead of Brookwood or the Summit for our next lunch! As picky as I am about food, I could not find one thing wrong! Can't wait to go back! Plenty of parking in... More

Visit often for brunch and am always satisfied. Great drink specials on Sunday afternoon. Food choices satisfy everyone in the group. Definitely recommend the omelets. Good amount of food for the price point. If it's good weather, there is good outdoor seating. The seating procedure is a bit odd however, but don't let that turn you off. It's one of... More

The weekend brunch menu was unique to me. I had the Reuben hash and it was awesome! Think open face Reuben sandwich with peppers and onions and without the sauce. Top that with an egg fried sunny side up.

Some of my extended family and I went for a casual dinner to Jackson's. The atmosphere inside was much louder and a-little-run-down-bar-like than I thought it was be. But, I was very pleasantly surprised by the food, which was delicious. The salmon Caesar salad was great, the fish cooked exactly as I requested. The seasoning was on the saltier/blackened side...

Jackson's is an average or typical neighborhood bar & grill. I dont like their indoor atmosphere. Its too loud and "concrete" looking. Outdoors is nice with plenty of seating. Menu is good. The beer selection is decent. Wines are middle of the road. Friendly staff. Free parking is best in the underground deck. Prices are very good-good value. Happy Hour... More
