I found the food OK and the location was convenient. But the "culture" feels contrived for some reason, rather than authentic.

I live in Europe and when I travel to Dulles airport, the first meal is ALWAYS Jacksons, for some "Mighty Fine Food." Special occasions or just lunch or dinner, the service, food, & menu cannot be beaten. The bar is packed on Friday nights; just call ahead for restaurant seating--it will be full too. Crab cakes, tenderloin steaks, chicken, cheeseburgers,... More

Located in Reston Town Center full of restaurants so it has to be good. In summer it’s always overflowing outside. Went with the family and as usual the food was great. For appetizers try the calamari and spinach or 2 cool dips. Excellent. For our main course it has to be the famous Jackson's Rib Eve that's marinated for days... More

My husband and I had lunch at Jackson's on Dec 31, since we stayed over in Reston. We love the place ! We like to go for lunch and always stay at the bar. We had very good service, there were two girls working there. People were friendly to each other, and even start chatting with a guy seated next... More

Over the last couple years we have dined less often at Jackson's because the quality of the food had begun to decline from really good to simply average. About a week ago, we went back and the food was superb -- back to the level of level of quality as when they first opened. Have they changed the head chef?... More

Food was amazing (lobster roll....mmmmm....), our server Justin was really great, nice atmosphere, good value. Would definitely go again. But it can't be a 5 because I called at 5pm to get 730 pm reservation. I was told that they don't take reservations, but that I should call at 650 to get on waiting list for 730. I called at...

When you first walk in the music is very loud but not in the seating area. Service was good but the food was excellent. Between our party we had Salmon, Sea bass, Mahi Mahi and Steak. All were cooked to perfection and were very flavorful and delicious. Wine's by the glass were OK. Nice find in Reston. We had not... More

The young wait staff was very attentive, but not stiflingly so. The chicken and greens salads were very fresh and presented well. All-in-all a very pleasant experience.
