Good Value

Went for the Wednesday all you can eat pasta Wednesday. Well worth it and the salad is wonderful. The flavor of the sauces are quite good.

My family goes to this Strings location often and I am always pleased. The service is very good. They serve the salad family style and it is very good. It is a creamy tangy italian dressing and all you can eat as well! I recently tried a new dish they offered called Baked Chicken Alla Panna. It is a Marinated... More

Have dined at Strings throughout California many times, Jackson location is consistent with other Strings. The food is average but that works for us. On the other hand, our server was excellent. I believe she use to work at the Sierra House in Pine Grove and has brought her skills to this Strings. She made our meal enjoyable with good... More

For the last two years, we eat at Strings almost every time we visit family in the mountains, because we always get great service and delicious food. Last time I tried a new dish that used thick strings of zucchini in place of noodles with a tasty vegetarian sauce. This was served with their great dinner salad. Being a gluten-free... More

We arrived in Jackson around 5 o'clock, and looked at a few reviews of this restaurant. The reviews were mostly positive, so we decided to have dinner there. Our server was great, and our order was taken quickly. We ordered wine, which also arrived promptly. At that point things went downhill quickly. Our server first informed us that they had... More

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 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
