“Nice spot off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

When we stopped here there were loads of people eating crawfish on the the patio/deck. The inside was pretty empty. The main bar could use a new coat of varnish, apparently people have been picking at it for years. There was also a really drunk older man at the bar. The buckets of beer were cheap. In the back they have a game area, which is where we spent our time at Jackie's. There are two $1 pool tables and two shuffleboard tables. The bartender will give you the shuffleboard pucks if you loan him your driver's license. There is also a bag toss game similar to washers out back. This back area also has it's own unisex restroom, which is nice. There is also a jukebox back there and an ATM. We had a lot fun for not much money.

“Crawfish and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I think I found a crawfish bar that is cheap and good. I visited this place on Thursday evening and it was packed. Crawfiah was tasty at $3.99/lb and they have $1 Lonestar draft beer. This is great for a location close to a tourist attraction area. Worth a trip to visit and done not break your bank.

“Current Claim to Fame: Crawfish!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Although it wasn't listed on the menu, I went for cold boiled shrimp and a beer, which WERE readily available. It's a large place, and although it was early on a Sat. nite, it was already crowded. I was ignored for the first few minutes in the chaos, but once a server noticed I was there, service was excellent. The menu was pretty standard pub food, with the addition of Crawfish - and that's what most of the crowd came for. The noise, crowd, and chaos was such that I was glad to leave before the band started, right after I finished a pound of shrimp and two beers - but that "party atmosphere" was, of course, what many also came for. One pound of shrimp plus two beers was $22 - I may go back for a lunch special, but not on Saturday night...

“Great place to have fun with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Jackie's is such a fun place. Burgers, crawfish, pizza etc they are all good. .Its a hometown bar, club whatever...They have great bands on the weekends and they also have special weekend or nightly events such as Superbowl, Mardi Gras, halloween etc. They have great drink specials which are reasonable
This a place if you want to have fun with friends and hang out.
