What a view!

We visited this place last week with some friends. The food was just great, the location simply perfect as it has a view of downtown Tampa. I ordered a chicken plate, not sure what the name was but it was delicious and huge. My husband ordered a sushi platter and he said it was awesome. The service... read more

I went for a friends birthday dinner I parked in the garage by the Westin and took the elevator up very simple. The inside is nice and the view is beautiful. For appetizers we had conch fritters (delicious) calamari (the yellow/orange sauce was amazing), and flatbread (ok). For dinner I ordered the Maine lobster roll with fries. The fries were... More

This writer previously posted concerning her unpleasant Mother's day visit to this restaurant. The Manager responded and indicated that he would like to try and make up for the visit. As a guest of the restaurant, we returned for Father's Day. No one was aware of when we would return. it was a completely different experience. The food was excellent... More

We were staying in the nearby Embassy Suites and were able to walk to this great waterfront restaurant. We loved sitting outside and enjoying the view. Lobster mac and cheese was wonderful as was the sushi. I recommend it for sure.

Food was pretty good. Filet sandwich was tasty but a bit dry. Cheeseburger, fries and lobster roll were good. Tri colored pasta was tasteless. Service and view were great.

I was in town for a conference, and ordered from the quick lunch menu. The burger was just a pre done frozen patty, and no... More

I had the unpleasant experience of dining at Jackson's Bistro today for lunch. This is the first time I've been to Jackson's in quite awhile, and won't be returning anytime soon. We arrived for lunch at about 12:10, found a long line of people waiting to check in (most of which were from the convention center), so we decided to... More

I find myself at Jackson's often when im in town, Its a perfect place for having a quick drink at the bar and watching a game, sitting outside and having lunch with a view or sitting inside and having a decent dinner.
