We had a table of 11 (including small children). The server was very accomodating, easily splitting checks without effort or attitude. Restaurant took our party as a walk in. We had a late lunch (around 1:30pm on 11/04/11). She brought the young children's food first without prompting or asking. Wish I could remember her name! Gratuity was included on checks... More

My partner & I recently stopped in Jackson Mountain for a quick bite to eat and the experience we got was more wonderful than we expected!!! The beer was good and cold, and their selection ranged from miller lite on tap to dogfish head. I was quite impressed with just the beer selection itself! my partner had the steamers and... More

My husband and I come to cape may every year and Jackson mountain is one stop we always make. The staff is always friendly and the food is always good, what more could you ask for! If there is one dish that I would recommend it's the bruchetta, by far the best I ever had. I would highly recommend this... More

My husband and I ate there because of proximity and what looked like a vast menu selection. This was our first visit to this restaurant so we went in with no expectations. We did get a table outside by chance not choice and the seating was way to close for comfort. Only one person could pass down the narrow aisle... More

We have gone here for years and always loved it. Stopped yesterday for a quick sandwich before heading home for the day and it was not good at all. We both got the Panini French Dip and it tasted like artificial roast beef or I don't know what the heck it was. I ordered a strawberry margarita and I don't... More

I feel like this place tends to sort of "hid" within the goings-on at the Washington Street mall, and that's a good thing, since no one should ever go here! After countless years of vacationing in Cape May, my family finally decided hey, we have never tried this place, so maybe we should! Well, that was a mistake we'll never... More

Noisy and terrible food. How can you ruin a kids mac and chesse? McDonald's is gourmet dining in comparison to this place!

I have no idea how this place stays in business. Wait – yes I do! It’s the location. Prime spot in the shopping district. It’s the only explanation. First let me say that Jackson Mountain was one of our favorite places. That was about 10 years ago. I don’t know if new owners took over or it it’s under new... More

Horrible food and service. Got mystery meat instead of roast beef and cold onion rings swimming in grease. No silverware, no water refills and no apologies. Stay away!
