Jackson's is in a beautiful location, and if you have 3 hours to spend on a meal and want to sit outside on the water, then this might be the place for you. Our table of four stopped by after a convention (right across the street from the Tampa Convention Center, convenient to the Tampa Marriott Waterside and Embassy Suites). Maybe they weren't prepared for a convention crowd on a Sunday night, but everything took FOREVER. Got our first drink after 45 minutes, bread an hour and a half in, meals close to two hours after being seated. Hard to fault our waiter, who was literally RUNNING around the restaurant, but if there are delays at the kitchen or the bar, it's nice to get updates, refills on water, or an acknowledgement that we're still waiting (none of the above). The food was good and the atmosphere was great, just a very slow experience.
