Celebrated my birthday at Jacksons. We were visiting the area and just happened upon it. walked in without a reservation and got a great table right by the water. The view is fantastic. Food was great. Wine was very reasonably priced. Our server was relatively new and could use some polishing but he really worked at it and did a... More

Nice little place to go, food was good, scenery was nice, wait staff was efficient; we stayed close by at the Embassy Suites and just wanted to walk some where for dinner, this was a great spot, enjoyed it very much

Came here for lunch. Atmosphere outside is nice since is on the water but service was poor. Food was average and they have a limited menu for late lunches. I would not recommend this as a place to seek out, but rather a place to go if you need to stay on harbor island.

Great location, very scenic. Food was excellent, we had sushi to start and it was perfect. Service was top notch. It was good enough where we went there twice on our trip.

Great spot. Tuna tartar appetizer would be better if it had more tuna in it! Dinner was wonderful. Service excellent.

Had a nice meal here. You can sit inside or out whatever your preference. Inside is a little dark and noisy and of course outside depends on the weather but it is in a nice place right on the water, just across the bridge from the convention center. Staff was very nice. Food was decent but not the best I've... More

Went to Jackson's for the first time today. Not the easiest place to get to - however, worth the effort. They even validate your parking for 2 hours so that you don't feel rushed while you enjoy your time at this beautiful location! It was a slightly stormy day, so watching the clouds and rain over the water gave this... More

I believe the hostess canceled our reservation instead of checking us in..open table sent me an email to call the restaurant if that was an error. Just something to point out.The waiter was really tentative and quick..he brought water right away and... More

7/3/14 I was with a colleague today at a Tampa Bay Convention Center Conference, and the situation didn't allow much time for lunch. We opted for a quick walk over the bridge. We were told that Jackson's was, "OK" and had another option close by. Well, we were so frozen from the a/c, that we opted for outside seats which... More

I loved the sushi and the food was delicious! I loved that we were able to sit outside and see the water. Very nice view and great customer service!
