Lots of good food there from burgers to a full dinner menu. Nice bar if you just want to sit for a drink. formal dining room has seating by the fireplace. I'll definitely go back.

A night out at Jackson's is a treat. Bar and tavern style seating in the front and a large cozy dining room in the back with a big fireplace. Menu has a good selection of casual fare, like burgers, as well as may very fine dinner entrees - in short, there's something for everyone. The wine list is respectable, and... More

Had a great meal in a lovely restaurant and bar. The food was top notch and good value for money. There was a varied wine list of excellent wines which was priced very reasonably and the service was excellent, warm friendly and genuine. It was all so good we went back the following evening which we almost never do. a... More

Very nice restaurant. Charming. Loved the historical significance. Food was very good and good portions. Piano player added to ambience. Only downside was the charge for refills on sodas. Come on. Especially when beer and wine is being purchased. Having traveled some this is a no no.

We stopped here for the first time. We were on our way to the MacHaydn Theatre and should have allowed ourselves more time to enjoy our meal. But the food was wonderful so we will definitely be back. I had flat iron steak from the Light Fare menu. It was a good-sized portion of tender steak on toast with lots... More

My husband and I went to Jackson's last night for dinner, had not been there in a while, and were so glad we choose to go there. Owners and staff are so friendly and professional - make you feel at home. My husband had the prime rib king cut and it was cooked to perfection. I had the chicken cordon... More

Visited for dinner last Friday and had a wonderful meal. Jackson's is in (I think) it's 3rd generation of owners and has long been known for a great steak dinner. I've only become a semi-regular patron in the last five years ago and I wonder know why I haven't been a frequent patron all along. Great menu with steak and... More
