Visited for a late happy hour and sat at the bar with the opening to the street. There was an interesting crowd but we enjoyed the place overall. The dining room was quite full as was the bar. We simply had chips and dip - which were ok. We will return.

Was in town for a few days on business and wanted to avoid at all costs the hotel restaurant. As it was springtime, weather was turning nice and this restaurant, along with others in the downtown area, had an outdoor area... in this case, a bar exposed to the street. Ate here twice... first night was quiet, attentive bar keeps... More

I visited Jacksons recently on a business trip with my boss. Restaurant was busy with a good atmosphere. We had to wait a short time for a table but not too long - long enough for a cold beer at the bar! Food was what you'd expect but was great quality and really nicely cooked. Grouper fish fingers were lovely!... More

I have eaten there several times. Always consistent. Great presentation. Good number of waiters and waitresses that overlap duties making you feel like you have several people waiting on you. Nice. Recommend the penne pasta dish with chicken and shrimp. A bit pricy for lunch, but Reston is popular and allows for higher pricing.

We have eaten at Jackson's a few times and are very impressed with food quality and service. Beef, chicken, fish are all excellent. They also have great sushi! Vibrant bar scene at Jackson's in Reston Town Center. Also grata for families.

I love this place and meet friends there every week. The food is terrific, always, I particularly like the short smoked salmon on salad. Ingredients are very fresh. The fish of the day is always superb. Prices are very reasonable compared to some nearby restaurants. Most of the waiters are perfect, but recently some have been 'forgetting' to put the... More

A friend of mine picked me up at IAD Airport last week and this is where he took me for dinner. The place was jammed pack for happy hour in both bars but there was still a few tables available for dinner in the main dining room. Our server was very professional and pretty funny as well as she had... More

Came here for lunch. Thankfully got there early as this place fills up fast! My husband and I both ordered the burger. Food was not great. Both the burger and the fries were just too salty. I am not a lover of salt, never add it to to food, my husband puts salt on everything and even he complained that... More
