Description: Located in the center of Jacksonville, a historic town in Southern Oregon that got its start as part of the gold rush back in the 1850s, stands the Jacksonville Inn. It’s an elegant bed and breakfast housed in a building built in 18961 complete with walls made of locally quarried sandstone (specks of gold are still visible in the mortar). The historic hotel rooms blend distinctive 19th century décor with the necessities of a connected digital age, including a variety of modern comforts and amenities. Whether or not you are staying in the unforgettable rooms, you will love dining in the superb restaurant with its distinctive menu and impressive wine list featuring over 2,000 wines. The restaurant is known for its attention to detail and personal service and has a passion for building connections with its customers. The Jacksonville Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has served three U.S. presidents and has provided lodging for a U. S. president and First Lady.

“Old beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

We chose to dine in the basement of this150+ year old hotel. Our table sat next to an old restored brick wall. The setting is very rustic, but the service and food are very upscale. The menu has innovative choices, as well as standards. Our host had a well prepared steak with pepper steak, I had a very flaky and tender piece of fish. I don't remember the name of the appetizer, but it looks like crème brulee--with the crusted top. However, it is made with blue cheese. Delicious! The atmosphere is warm and comfortable, and there is also a choice of outdoor seating that is lovely.

“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

This is an upscale restaurant, and served very good food. It was a little pricey or I'd give it 5 stars. The atmosphere was set up to be a formal restaurant, but they seated us with casual clothes on and made no mention a dress code. the service was excellent.

“Keep up Quality Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

My husband and I come here every year and eat out on their patio, while on vacation. The flowers and little white lights keep up the ambience. When we go there we ask for the bistro menu, (the cost is a bit more reasonable). I had the hazelnut encrusted prawns, (I hope they will have them again next year) they were the best. My husband had wild king salmon which was excellent, and again very inexpensive from the same (bistro) menu.
Our waitress was very pleasant, which helps towards the whole dining experience.
Sundays are less crowded than Fridays and Saturdays and more relaxing. The Jacksonville Inn dining house is a big plus for Jacksonville....and they do catering too, if your ever need a caterer....

“Sumptuous and inviting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

The food is great. Almost everything on the menu is good. There is just a lot of food. We had the famous blue cheese creme brûlée appetizer and it was as good as advertised. I had the sole, my wife had the hazelnut chicken and our friend had the halibut. It was all so good but there was so much to eat that we wished we had not ordered the cream brûlée appetizer. The service was good. The lady at the piano bar just kept playing great background music without a break.

“One of the best restaurants in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This place is seriously old school, from the interior to the dishes themselves and even the presentation. Food was very good and it's a unique, historic property.
