We re-try Jackson's about once a year, hoping each time that we'll hit it lucky. Not so far, over about 6-8 years. Every time, we have been disappointed by what amounts to sloppy preparation of otherwise decent ingredients: underdone, overdone, cold on presentation, etc. We think the place is riding on its reputation, and wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Our daughters boyfriend-at-the-time Zak Carstens was in training here years ago, and would only speak the best of his senior chef(s). We knew the food he would bring home was exceptional and was shared with everyone. In the past two years we visited with relatives from Europe, and had a great time. Food was everything I had expected, and then... More

I have been familiar with this chef's exquisite dishes since the 1980's. He was excellent then and still is. One of my favorite chefs then and now. My only very mild complaint would be that they seem to be trying to serve too many people with too few staff. However, the service still was extremely pofessional.

My husband and I had read reviews and decided to give this restaurant a try and SO glad we did. Gorgeous ambiance, very warm and inviting and noise level is low, very easy to converse and tables have breathing space between. The service was excellent and our dinner outstanding. We both ordered the roasted Vidalia Onion Soup which was the... More

Although this restaurant is a little pricy (especially for dinner), the food is outstanding. Lunch prices are more reasonable and the first martini is on the house! I had the onion soup and black and blue spinach salad and it was SOOO good! Didn't have room for dessert, but plan on coming back to try that another time. The location... More

This restaurant is in the heart of Pensacola's downtown and I must say I am very pleased in the location and the upscale dining and atmosphere. I believe it is somewhere that offers a nice dinner menu with a special occasions flair. I must say though my family and I sat in the second room off from the main dining... More

Jackson's is often touted as the premier restaurant in Pensacola, and chef Irv Miller is a minor local celebrity. I find, after several visits, that it disappoints, for several reasons: 1. Parking is a problem. It is difficult to park near the restaurant. Valet parking should be made available. 2. The noise level makes conversation impossible. 3. It is very... More

Based on the reviews, we stopped by, sans reservation, in search of a good steak around 7:30 on a lazy Tuesday night, November 25th. Parking was no problem, the bar was empty, it appeared that most tables had entrees. The atmosphere appeared pleasant and we liked the feel of the restaurant upon entering. The hostess, a maybe twenty-something brunette, was... More
