This popular Harbor Island spot has a beautiful location on the water. It's conveniently located close to the convention center and is walkable to events in the area. Lots of food and drink options!
Amazing Sunday brunches.
Extremely disappointed with how we were treated with visiting Jackson's today. We waited roughly 5 minutes at the hostess stand while one hostess was too busy to say, "Hello" to us. The other hostess came back, and we asked if there was a chance we could be seated at a table for two. This woman's reply was in a rude, almost condescending way "There is absolutely nothing inside or outside." We had to ask what the wait was, and she looked annoyed when we did. She told it would be 30 minutes or more, but that she didn't know where we would wait. With that, we left...don't know if we will ever come back to try their food
Great Lobster Rolls!
Pros: walk to it...Gelato Stand and Pizza is great and free delivery!
Cons: Great happy Hours... then a younger crowd comes in later ...to young for me, sometimes. Really no con's 9I go to sleep by the time they are coming out LOL)
I have been visiting Jackson's since I first moved to Florida way back in 1999. My parents would often spend time after work there and as a kid I only went for their California Rolls. During the mid-2000s I took up a summer job on Harbour Island and would often walk across the street to Jackson's for lunch with my fellow co-workers. During these times the sushi was very fresh at Jackson's and it was one of my favorite places for sushi. During the past few years the sushi has teetered from delicious to good and sometimes mediocre. It would be better if the service was better. During one visit with some friends, we were completely ignored by our waitress who disappeared for over an hour while we waited for food orders that were never placed and tried to find someone capable of closing our bill so we could leave. I wish it was the only time were subjected to this kind of service, but repeat visits have fared similar results. I do like Jackson's as a nightlife venue. I love that they have three different rooms with different music and the outside waterfront is just breathtaking. Paying for parking sucks and cover charge can be high at times, but I suppose it cannot be cheap to offer th
Pros: Fun nightclub, good music, great view
Cons: Food and service experiences are mixed
The view and atmosphere is amazing but the food is not up to par with the prices. It's not horrible but not that great. I would definitely recommend going for drinks/appetizers instead of dinner. But when you have a view like that it's hard not to enjoy it!
Pros: View and atmosphere
Pros: Great food! I love their sushi. I would recommend this place to my friends.
Pros: A nice waterfront view on the patio.
Cons: The food isn't the best I've ever had, especially for the prices.
