Ever since the renovation a couple of years ago the restaurant as not been the same. The prices have increased and the taste and quality of the food has decreased. It is always crowded and the upstairs is not the greatest for dinner either. Very loud and very slow service.

Food was average, interior is...well, it's a bar atmosphere. I felt like we went to a college bar. We had a group of 10 for a birthday dinner years ago. Since I recently joined tripadvisor I thought I'd back date this from many years before the October 2013 date listed. I'm not even sure if the current owner was the... More

We had been to Jackson Mtn. Cafe several times over the course of the past several years, for a few drinks and bar food, which was not bad, but last July, it seems to have reached a new low in terms of service. We went in, sat at the bar, & just wished get a few drinks and possibly some... More

My wife and I were there in the winter to see the town dressed up for Christmas and we stumbled upon this place in search of a beer and a television to watch the football game. Nice and quiet we did not eat there so I cannot comment on the food but the atmosphere was a basic bar scene.

It's an average bar and grill. The food was good. Nothing spectacular. Just good. The prices were okay, kind of high, but good for the area. The server was friendly. Would I visit here again? Probably not, but it was a good spot for a quick meal with the family.

say nothing. So... NOTHING! In a pinch, since it's the offseason, and we really needed lunch, we stopped in, much to my chagrine. Having been here years ago during motorcycle weekend in Wildwood, and remembering sticking to the table and seat, I was actually happy when I walked in to see that the place has been repainted inside. Then we... More

Just happened upon this place when walking through the Washington Mall. All we were looking for was a light lunch and a couple of beers. We had the soup and half sandwich combo. The clam chowder was very good and we would recommend it to others. The sandwiches were larger than what we were expecting. You also received chips, coleslaw... More

We had a good experience here. We were looking for a decent burger place and we got it. Waitress was attentive, the beer was cold and the food was what we expected. My wife had the crab meat melt and I the Cajun burger. Both were pretty good and done to our satisfaction. We sat outside and did not go... More

We have stopped here several times because of the great service and good food. On our last trip we were enjoying meandering thru Washington Mall and asked to share the CA grilled chicken sandwich. Our awesome waitress cut the (huge) sandwich in half on each plate with our own side of fries. It's the little touches that make me happy,... More

Good beer. Bartenders very friendly. Good Food. Despite being cold and rainy outside, it was warm and comfortable inside.
