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

We dine here periodically. Most recently we took our son and his wife and two young daughters to Jackson's last week and everyone was pleased with all aspects of the dinner and service. We've been to all the downtown restaurants in Pensacola and this one's the best. I'd rank it among the better establishments in major U.S. and European cities.... More

I have long heard that this is the best place to eat in Pensacola. While I personally would disagree with that statement, this restaurant is very good. The sauces are very rich and my entree was just way too salty. However, they have an extensive menu and the service is fantastic. There is something for everyone at Jackson's. The drink... More

We like to go to lunch at Jacksons where the first martini is free! They have some unusual lunch choices for something different and some comfort foods and burgers for those less adventurous souls. Most lunches will cost between ten and twenty dollars. You can go a little lower or a lot higher depending on your choice. Dinners are often... More

We were visiting downtown Pensacola on a cold, windy day at lunchtime ... stopped in Jackson's Steakhouse on a whim. A great lunch! The service was great, we were offered some great recommendations, which we decided to go with. Went with the sweet potato soup and their stuffed flounder, both very well prepared and featuring a little local variation to... More

Just a quick lunch while enjoying this part of downtown Pensacola. The service was excellent but the preparation ran a little long for a lunch. Quality of food was very good as were the sizes. We will go back for a dinner.

The entire time I have been in Pensacola, I have heard various things about this establishment. Each time, I kept hearing adjectives such as 'expensive', 'nice', 'good', and 'overpriced'. I went n with an open mind to this visit which was about 15 people from work for a business related dinner. The first glass of wine was very good and... More

Jackson's is a high-quality steakhouse, of the type you might find in New York. The food is very good. It's also very expensive. We had a dinner for four and were treated very well. The food was well prepared, the portions were large, and the service was excellent. The restaurant itself is new, with light woods and great light fixtures.... More
