If your want good seafood, Jackson's is the place to go! This restaurant always provides impeccable service & has a great view of the water if you sit outside on the patio! Its also close to other bars and restaurants, so if you decided to walk to this restaurant you can easily walk to the surrounding destinations.
Pros: View, Food, Service.
Cons: parking is okay, not great.
The atmosphere and food at Jackson's are amazing! The sushi was very fresh and the drinks were delicious!
Jackson's is a Tampa staple! Whether you go on a Friday night or Gasparilla it's always packed but rightfully so! Stop by for great service, a great meal, and some cute craft cocktails!
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)
