“Enjoyed every moment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

It was our first time here and we loved it! Our waiter was very detailed with everything on the menu and could see that he enjoys working at Jackson's Steakhouse. Since I live in Pensacola, I'm thrilled that Jackson's is in downtown and businesses are doing well. After dinner, we walked around downtown and stopped by a few places to have a cocktail.

“Great Atmosphere and GREAT Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Since moving to Pensacola, we have always heard that Jackson was the place to go for good food and fine dining. Our first experience was in July of 2011. My wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch. The service was STUPENDOUS! The lunch time menu was perfect, pricey, but well worth the pricE Our next experience was for a Sunday Brunch in coordiantion with a Sunday Matinee at the local Opera house. Chef Irv prepared a wonder selection of brunch time foods!
My lovely bride and I have been enjoying dinner at Jackson's quite regulary now and cannot say enough; we HIGHLy reccommedn Jackson's for your choice for a fine dining experience.

“First time dinner at Jackson's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We are both in hospitality and have heard that Jackson's is the place to go for fine dining as well as special occasions. We had also heard that the food and atmosphere were well worth the price point. So we decided to give Jackson's a try.
We had a 7pm reservation. We were greeted by name and were told "Happy Anniversary" by everyone we met. Our server, Scott, was very warm and personable. He was extremely knowledgable and helped us with some wonderful selections from their new menu.
The food and drink were fantastic, our appetizer and steaks were perfectly cooked, and the wine paired beautifully with our selections. We enjoyed ourselves immensely until a family with two small children (ages 2 and 4) were seated near us at 8pm.
Within 15 minutes the atmosphere was shattered with fussy children up past their bedtime. At that point, we might as well have been at Chili's. We quickly finished our dinner, ordered our dessert to go, rushed the check, and left as quickly and as gracefully as we possibly could.
What a dismal disappointment. Fine dining should be "all encompassing". We loved everything about Jackson's, except for the atmosphere. When you eat at a restaurant of this caliber, you are paying for an experience as well as food and beverage. Thus the 3 star rating. I suppose we might try again another time, but it will not be for a special occasion.

“Amazing again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The food is always delicious at Jackson's, but be ready to pay for that quality and amazing service..however it so worth it! The Filet Mignon(ordered medium well)melted in my mouth and the baked oysters app was delicious. The staff is always on top of things and go beyond top customer service. Will be back for sure....
