Jacksons has a really great view but the food and service are average the several times we've been there. Tonight (Sunday) was no exception. It was late and I didn't want a heavy meal. Although the lobster bisque was very good, the entree salads were average and could have been much better with a little more attention to their preparation... More

Had a great time with friends at Sunday brunch. The view is spectacular make sure to sit outside. The buffet offers a huge variety of food for everyone to enjoy. The service is a bit slow but the atmosphere definitely compensates for it.

Very nice restaurant overlooking the river at Tampa Bay. Good food choice and wine list, including regular fare, sushi, and more; good price/quality for the location. Recommend to go there at night, you'll see the city lights over the water.

My husband and I sat outside and had a lovely view of the harbor. Just be careful not to get in direct line of setting sun -- there can be quite a glare. The outdoor seating is around the bar, so the crowd can get a bit noisy. Also smoking is permitted outside. The food was extremely good. My grouper... More

We were there for a wedding reception. They had us set up in a private area, so there was not much interruption. The food was superb, a little pricey but worth it. The location is great, right on the waterway. Really nice place to go for a "special occasion".

I live in Miami, so maybe I'm spoiled. Service was slow. When we asked for children's menus, the waiter said, I'll tell you what's on the kids' menu. We had a 10 year old he said was too old for kids' menu. Had a salad that was supposed to have calamata olives--there was 1, salad was SMALL, and 10.00 plus... More

I went here for Lunch, and was handed a small one page menu, while I noticed others were getting a full menu pamphlet, not sure why i wasnt given those options, had I not already ordered, I wouldve asked. However, with that being said, the Food was really Good! My waitress was awesome!
