I popped in here while on business for an early dinner and drink. Bartender was super nice, attentive. But I had read so much online about this place... was disappointed with the ambiance, the average food. Great location. Great patio. Might be a better place for appies and cocktails then a full on meal.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon recently. It is located in the popular SOHO complex in Homewood with several other restaurants adjacent to it. We actually had wanted to dine at one of the other restaurants, but it was closed on Sunday. By the crowd and the noise level it must be a popular place, but I really wonder... More

Visited Jackson's for Sunday Brunch with friends. They seemed to be very understaffed. We were seated upstairs and waited for somebody to greet us for at least 20 mins. The waiter tried to take care of us but was very stressed. I ordered the corn beef hash. Maybe one of the worst things I have ever eaten. egg on top... More

Had a glass of wine and an appetizer - nice place to relax and grab a drink before dinner. Had the chicken appetizer - fantastic!

Jackson's has a good lunch menu and good service. I typically have their burger. It is juicy and well prepared. They have really great french fries.

Jackson's is a place our family frequent's often. It serves mostly American grill food, but it has a wood fired oven for pizza and baking their own bread. The meatloaf is one of my favorites. The menu is varied enough that each person can find a favorite. If the weather is nice you can sit outside.

We had a great cup of coffee, French toast, eggs, hash browns, smoked sausage, biscuits and gravy. Just a taste of the menu's variety. Very good service.

I was here over the July 4th holiday weekend with my family. Everything we tried was superb. The French onion soup, Caesar salad, mini pizza made in a coal fired pizza oven in the center of the place. They have an appetizer of chicken feathers that was to die for. My wife had the salmon which was fabulous and don't... More

We love this restaurant, not just for the great food, but the outdoor seating and permittance of dogs (if tied up on the outside of patio area). We have never been disappointed here.

The best Bloody Mary around and some excellent choices in different sandwiches, salads and wraps. Lovely outdoor seating in good weather.
