Great view, and good food

Great views, good food, I think they are overpriced, but it is very enjoyable to just sit there, relax and wind down after a busy day!

We walked over to Jacksons after the host at Trolleys (in Embassy Suites) would only give us a tiny two top table for dinner. It was a great change in our plans. I had a wonderful 6 oz filet and the hubs had a huge pork chop. The au gratin potatoes were homemade and delicious. Service was top notch. We... More

The location is great , however the service and food was average at best. The hostess initially tried to seat us inside, when we requested a table near the water we were told that all of them had been reserved. We then asked for a table outside near the water view and she again tried to seat us in a... More

Jackson's Bistro, a locally owned, waterfront restaurant on Harbour Island, is one of our favorite places to go with family and friends. The setting is spectacular, offering lovely views any time of the day. But the evening sky, when you're dining outside, can be awesome. The food is very good, as is the service. I also have a secret-- Before... More

I rated this restaurant highly only just last year. Unfortunately, they got rid of their gluten free menu this year. I visited Jackson's and asked for a GF menu and was told there was none. Our waiter Steven sd he would check with the chef and see what items on the menu were gluten free. He advised me the grilled... More

We ordered roasted artichoke appetizers (amazing), lobster bisque (one the best we have ever had), prime rib stuffed with filet mignon (what can I say), lobster mac & cheese and filet mignon with Parmesan au gratin potatoes. The service was spot on....we were quite frankly amazed at how tasty the food was! We saw the sushi menu and thought....not a... More

A let down. Service was slow and the food was just OK. A couple of our party order Sushi and they brought out the hot meals first and the Sushi 10 minutes later. Another of our friends who were also there experienced even worse service than we did,

Since it's located right on the water (top of the Bay), the views are beautiful. Location is very good too since its on Harbor Island (near downtown, Channelside, and Bayshore). However, based on price and quality of food, I have to give it a 3 in the rating above (maybe a 3.5). It's also fun for after work crowds on... More

Dined here recently with a group of 7. Found food and service to be very good. Wine service was also very good. Restaurant was very busy. Would definitely go back again. Forgot to check if they validate parking.
