always great

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

Nice place. Good service and good food. Big and open dining room. Windows were large and made the place seem bigger than it already was. Service was very good. Food was served quickly and correctly. Everyone was happy with their selection. The meatloaf dinner was spicy and tasty. We will return next trip

try their appetizers - cheese fries at brunch with the country gravy are great - but the cheese fries at lunch on weekdays cannot compare

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.
