“Excellent Function Venue”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I had my 50th Birthday party at Jam Corner with family & friends on Saturday night. The friendly professional service & the food - Canapes & Western Suckling Pig were beautiful & presented so well. Everyone who attended commented on the excellent food, service & venue. Thanks to the Jam Team for a great night.

“Great service, good food.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Have been keen to try Jam Corner for a while as frustratingly they are closed on Monday evenings which is when I visit Townsville, however I was there on a busy Tuesday evening, decor and atmosphere is very nice here and the service received was of a high standard.

For starters I had the crumbed olives which were pretty tasty with the
Aioli dip, I would have liked a few more. There were also some small Ligurian olives on this plate which while did taste very good were hard work given the amount of flesh you got after the stone was removed!

The main dish I selected was the Chicken Ballottine on fregola and barley risotto. The chicken was cooked great and the textures and general taste of this this dish were excellent, BUT sadly I was left with a rather unpleasant, lip tingling after-taste which for me ruined what could be a stand out dish. Perhaps the herbs and spices were just not right or been cooked off enough.

Redemption appeared though in the Jam and Peanut Butter dessert. Other than the greenery of cress/parsley sprinkling (making I must say it's third unwelcome appearance of the evening) this was truly a delicious dessert. Fantastic textures and flavour combinations, a great high note to finish on.

Hopefully I will get another chance to eat at Jam Corner when I'm next there not on a Monday, yes the food was good, but really it has a little to go to make it the top level I was expecting.

“Best service we have ever had!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

A very busy Sunday breakfast spot! But still best service we have ever had! Food good, but service from the sweet redhead girl made our day! Booked in again for dinner. Six star service and five star food. Well deserving of the hat. As the girl who served us said "we pride ourselves in fine dining food and service, with a relaxed dining feel." Townsville we are impressed! V8's or not, can't wait to come back!

We visited on a busy Friday night and both the food and the service were excellent. We had the degustation menu which was good value and great quality. A great night.
