Went with a good buddy and we sat at the bar because the wait for an actual table was over a half hour. The bartender served up some excellent California wines and had a great attitude. The other bartender was a world traveler and we had a great conversation with her as well. The restaurant was lively without being jam... More

Jackson's is set in a beautiful location in Tampa, right on the water, and they've done a fantastic job designing the place with lots of waterfront seating. To me, the food was OK -- not amazing. Good. But with the setting, it's worth a visit for sure.

I was with a gorup of around twenty who dined at Jacksons. It was a delightful experience. We had a reservation and were seated right on time. The servers were very attentive, and all the food came out in a timely manner. I highly recommend the coconut shrimp and Calimari appetizers. We shared, but both would be plenty as an... More

Summary: Good food, Service improved with our dinner server, Exceptional view. Yes I would return, we didn't as we had many other dining options in the area to try. We started with one server and then we were... More

My friends and I arrived at Jackson's for the Sunday brunch buffet without an reservation. We were told there was an hour wait, of which we did not mind since we were waiting for one more person to arrive. The hostess took my friend's cell phone number in order to receive a text notification once our table is ready. The... More

It's right on the water and across the street from hotels. The sushi was ok, the steak was really good and the fish was outstanding! Can you tell I've been there a few times? The wait staff isn't the best or friendliest though. Oh well, I'll still go back.

This was an unexpected great dinner! We were staying across the bridge at the Marriott and walked over for dinner. We sat right on the water! It was quiet and romantic. Great service from Jose. Food was very good. We had the pecan-crusted swordfish --- excellent!
