Very good food.

Strings has good food, service and a local atmosphere. Always get a friendly greeting when entering and meals are served hot and with an appetizing display.

We love Strings in Jackson. The Food is always excellent and they really give you a ton for the value. First off we all had Italian Sodas, Tons of flavors so I ordered a Watermelon one and it was really good. Then we had a huge bowl of salad served family style. They even asked if we wanted more! We... More

We were seated right away on a Saturday evening. The place had a nice ambiance, seemed to be popular with families. The kids were fine with the pizza, the husband also liked his order of stuffed pasta. I did not like my fettuccine carbonara though, it was bland so skip that and try other pasta. Our server was very nice,... More

Don't order the Lazagna & Cheese Shells! One tiny meatball the size of a marble and the rest, flavorless cheese. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dish??? Great service though

My husband and I eat here when we are looking to satisfy our appetite for an Italian meal. They have a good selection and the food is moderately priced. The portions are large and we usually leave with a doggie bag. The service has always been excellent and you are warmly greeted upon arrival. We have yet to be disappointed.

Was working in Jackson CA and I love Italian food that is prepared locally and not a chain. I've never been to Strings but thought I'd try it. The service was great, never waited for anything as the staff was extremely attentive and prompt. I had soup with bread and their mixture of olive oil, chopped garlic, and balsamic vinegar.... More

Had lunch here with my grandmother and brother. We were served quickly but seated in a booth in the corner even though it was not particularly busy. Ordered the chicken Parmesan which was great but the Alfredo pasta with it was lacking in sauce and it wasn't very hot either. Brother ordered the Margherita pizza which he enjoyed and was... More
