We have been to Jam for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the past few years. The $40 lunch course (three courses with a glass of beer/wine included) is fantastic, and dinner is also excellent. Our favourite, however, is definitely breakfast. The quality of the food and range of options goes above and beyond what other establishments in Townsville offer. Dishes... More

Great for breakfast fast service and good coffee. Dinner menu also has a lot of variety. Function room upstairs is lovely and have used it a number of times as amenities are great and food exceptional.

Haven't been here for a couple of years but the food and service is still great. When we got there they had a good crowd already but this didn't affect the service. The food was still delivered in a timely manner. There was a small hiccup with one of our meals but this was fixed up promptly with no fuss.... More

Faultless service! Warm greeting, attentive service and a friendly smile, certainly started the night off well. It was disappointing that two of the mains on the menu were not available when we went, however there were still plenty of options. The room became a tad loud with a few other parties getting into the Christmas spirit but not a deal... More

You could not fault the service at this restaurant, it was great throughout the evening, starting with the vegetarian a la carte menus being on our table when we arrived. Entrees were good, however the mains were too fancy - seemed as if the chef had thrown everything on the plate - simple is better, let the ingredients shine. We... More

I have become rather jaded around eateries in North Queensland, not that I am a total food snob, but I know quality when I see it. This little gem in Townsville was a great surprise to my husband and I who often travel through Townsville on business. Totally thumbs up, we had breakfast and I immediately liked the cloth napkins,... More
