One of our favorite brunch spots

My fiancé and I visited here almost weekly for brunch when she lived in Bham and now stop in for brunch anytime we are in town. Great atmosphere inside. Spacious patio in a low traffic (foot or car) area. Bloody Mary is on point. Most of the brunch items are very good and some are not like... read more

As a visitor to Birmingham, I had heard that Jackson's was a good spot to grab some food and catch up with friends. Unfortunately, we were unable to get a table for our group. We had called five (5!) times and nobody answered the phone. Finally, after the sixth time calling someone answered the phone and told us that they... More

Jackson's is a great after work spot. Dinner is always fantastic and the service is excellent, even when the place is packed! Very nice location as well!

The spinach shrimp roll was delicious! The sweet tea infused vodka with lemonade was good also. Several choices for lunch including sandwiches, flatbreads and entrees. Reasonable priced. Good atmosphere. Outdoor seating.

Enjoyed Sunday brunch with friends at the outside dining are. Food was plentiful and everything ordered was very good. Monte Cristo sandwich was warm and cooked through, omelettes were great with plenty of filling. One of our party ordered steak and eggs. Steak was cooked as ordered and was very tender. Do not miss the grits if you're there for... More

Looking for a different place to eat came across Jackson's at SoHo in Homewood. Nice outside seating, loads of wait staff. Inside is a bit dark and noisy. Industrial feel to the bistro; prompt order placed for drinks, food served hot. The Croque Madam was good, salad fresh but the Champagne Vinaigrette was tasteless. Husbands order was for a patty...

Loved my panini, salads were all great - we were not impressed with the cookie dough eggrolls, though. Waste of $7 :( Also not impressed with the drunk lady at the next table - especially with the middle-schoolers I was chaperoning! But it comes with the territory I guess. We sat outside, which was lovely!

Brought my wife and oldest daughter here for lunch this week and had a fabulous meal. Funky atmosphere - fun artwork, TVs for sports, spiral staircase, large bar area. Excellent staff, nice menu, great food, very casual and comfortable. A little pricey for lunch, but we enjoyed it. I'll be back!!

We eat there at least once a week. The staff is always very helpful with the menu and wine and beer selections. Every dish has been good. Burgers and fries are great. Lots of parking and when the weather is nice outdoor tables. A little loud at night but with a good vibe.

Stayed at the nearby Aloft and stopped by to watch a game. Expected typical sports bar type food (bland, deep fried etc) but was much, much better than I expected. Also it was Tuesday night and the Guinness's, and nearly all beers, were half off which came to a ridiculous $2.10 each! Would go back but that being said I... More
