Jackie's is a favorite of Silver Spring residents for its unpretentious cuisine and neighborhood hangout vibe. We visited this occasion for its Monday Family Night, where they serve fried chicken with copious amounts of traditional sides, such as potato salad and biscuits. The chicken itself was decent and crispy, although I would have preferred a bit more spices. The accompaniments... More

We enjoyed our dinner for three at Jacquie's. I hadn't been here in a while, and thought the restaurant had a great atmosphere, with lots of energy conveyed by the open kitchen. We started out with the Chicken Liver Crostini, a sensational appetizer with lots of flavor from the paté, shaved truffles and arugula pesto (in fact, my two dining... More

This place is good but I have a feeling that they think they are better than they really are. One Yelp reviewer (Barb D) said it best: that their food is "more current than creative, i.e.:following not setting trends." When I asked if the could make some changes to one of the dishes, the response was a terse no. No... More

We were very pleased with the food and service on our recent visit. The decor is modern with a view of the kitchen in preparation. The set menu was very well priced with great choices. The food had great flavor with a modern prep. The presentations were nicely done. The wine list was limited but had a nice choice of... More

Members of our family have been to Jackie's before and really liked it. This night the portions were very small and the prices were very high for what you got. I asked for a plate of vegetables as I am a vegan. The waiter said that was no problem. When my dinner came, there were so few vegetables on my... More

This place used to be great to eat at- but portions have shrunk and prices have enlarged. With so many new choices in Silver spring they need to give us new reasons to come back.

Dined at this restaurant twice after being so impressed with the food on our first occasion. This restaurant has a small but diverse menu that they do very well. Most of the proteins are sous vide and then lightly pan seared so are moist and tender. Good atmosphere but it was a bit quiet on the Sunday night that we... More

After a long slow slide toward larger plates and "comfort food" Jackie's is back with small plates and deliciously layered flavors. We had more or less stopped going because the food was predictably good, more or less comfort food but not noteworthy. We shared an anchovy crisp appetizer (mixed reviews... I liked it a lot), a fresh tomato, watermelon and... More

My date and I were convinced to try out Jackie's from the Washington Post review. I think the critic must have been recognized because our experience was no where close to the experience written in the critique. Service was slow, the hostess, Jackie was not sociable, and seemed too full of herself and the food was mediocre. I certainly think... More
