My first day of travel is always brutal due to no decent food all day long. I walked into Jackson's not expecting any great, but to my surprise, everything was simply delicious! It was near lunch time when I walked in so I opted for the Lobster Roll. It was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. My wait staff was very... More

Another Mikes Restaurant creation and one of my favorites. I have never had a bad meal and they have a great menu including the best deviled eggs and even quality sushi. The drunken ribeye is amazing and the servers are always great. I cannot wait to go back.

We spent two nights in Herndon on our trip. We went to Jacksons based on TripAdvisor reviews. The place was packed and lively, a nice vibe. We had the calamari and jambalaya. Both were spicy and filling but were nothing to rave about.

Stopped in after reading reviews and it was a great choice. To start off we ordered are house salad and the Calamari. I'm not even a Calamari fan, but this was amazing! Had a little sweet & spicy sauce going on. As an entree, I ordered the smoked salmon, subbed the quinoa for a baked potato and added the roasted... More

I've been here a couple times now and must say this is a great place. It offers a nice dining experience in the dining area. The burgers are delicious. As for the outside bar, it's a great spot. Great beer selection and it's nice to get that outside breeze. The servers are all very friendly which makes this place a... More

We enjoyed our meal. I had the bacon cheeseburger. It was well done. The meat tasted great. I'm not too sure about the cheese and I could have done without. They work the tables as a team so we were taken care of nicely. They had a bread basket with a collection of breads. They were very tasty. I would... More

An unforgettable experience. This is how the blue moon ale is served in the country of origin of this beer. Sofas like in movies. As a first course Caesar salad. The main is a steak (medium rare) ...

We generally go to Jackson's once a month or more. Or did before Reston Town Center started charging for parking. Don't want to use the app or pay so now go to other GAR and other fine restaurants in the area. If you are willing to hassle with the parking, Jackson's is a great place. We have always been pleased... More

A nostalgic nod to mid century Americana and comfort food classics and some unexpected twists (a la sushi) in an upbeat 1940's dinner house.
