Good but noisy

Good food, noisy atmosphere. Desserts were spectacular (key lime pie, peanut butter chocolate cake).

Had dinner here this evening. I was excited because the last time I dined at Jackson's I had the most fabulous scallops & risotto. I have been craving it for the past month and finally got the opportunity to go back to Jackson's. Much to my surprise scallops and risotto are no longer on the NEW menu, arrrgh. Now there's...

I ate here with family and friends after my daughter graduate d from the University of Tampa. I must say from the minute we got there we had nothing but impeccable service. Our table had a wide range of food. I had the Kobe Steak Burger which was excellent. I also tried sushi and scallops for the first time and... More

Great menu. Great Food. Great views. If you get there early, try the early menu. What a bargain. Sushi/sashimi choices are fantastic and probably the best deal on the river. We have been to this restaurant about a dozen times over the past several years and we always look forward to returning.

I think it ridiculous that someone blames the restaurant for being racist on the fact that she couldn't get a table on a busy holiday. Come on people, that's just awful, you should be ashamed of yourself. I couldn't believe I read that,, it's a good restaurant, if it wasn't you would have gotten a table pretty quick.

Service was topnotch. Drinks were very good. If you sit outside, great table seating overlooking Tampa Bay. Did not have any food so cannot review the food.

Nine of us ate here for UT graduation lunch. The food was good and the choices plentiful, but our waiter – Taco – was absolutely outstanding! Despite the busy day, Taco remained attentive without being overbearing. He was friendly in a way that told you he enjoyed his job and was good at what he did. Best of all, he... More

Back again for a great meal with wonderful views of the bay. Desserts were excellent as were the burgers and the grouper stack. Can't miss with this place

I was very sorry to hear your comments. Every guest is important to us. We have a large diverse clientele in which we welcome every guest. Or Sunday brunch is very popular. With over 80 items it has always been a good value. It has also been always very popular with capacity being exceeded by demand. I would love for... More

Really good gelato. Right in front of the water. This place is next to the actual restaurant, is like a adjacent store that sells desert to go.
